Nice idea, but i thought that there is one main reason why this could be useful, and it's the scrolling option.

You are using only $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST as combobox style, this one disables the scrolling option. Replace it with this:

BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

and now you can see that this kind of context menu is useful :).

P.S.

And also i think you should pull out the File*Dialog functions from WM_COMMAND, because as docs states:

Warning: blocking of running user functions which executes window messages with commands such as "Msgbox()" can lead to unexpected behavior, the return to the system should be as fast as possible !!!

My suggestion would be use a dummy control with GUICtrlCreateDummy.

      hello guys
      how are you؟
      I hope to be fine.
      I have a question  please
      how do I get the menu item that was pressed without that contains a variable؟
      For example I have a menu  of Favorites and I want the script recognizes the existing path in the pressed item
      i'll repeat to tell the item does not contain a variable
      Is there any solution
      if you want to explain more I could write an example of what I want.
      Greetings to all,
      thanks in advance

      The following code is intended to illustrate a method of adding recent files to the File menu, once files have been opened or saved. This is not a UDF, nor a universal solution which fits all requirements. It is just the solution I made for myself and I thought it worth sharing. I haven't noticed much about this subject. The example only emulates opening and saving files: nothing is actually written to disk. I have not included any code for opening or saving files - only the File menu and Title bar are updated. The code is intended to illustrate the logic I used. Perhaps you can improve on it or get some ideas from this example.
      #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() #Region ; core functions Func UpdateRecentFiles(ByRef $aRecentFiles, $ahMenu, $sNewPath, $iMenuInsertPos) Local $iMaxFiles = UBound($aRecentFiles) -1 For $i = 1 To $aRecentFiles[0][0] ;

      Good evening guys
      I am working on a little project, in which I have to retrieve 8000+ rows of data from a table, from a SQLite database, to populate a combobox 
      This is what I tried 'til now, but it still takes about 12 seconds to populate the combobox.
      _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "BEGIN TRANSACTION;") If _SQLite_GetTable($objDatabase, "SELECT DISTINCT Comune FROM LISTA_COMUNI;", $arrRisultatoQuery, $intRighe, $intColonne) = $SQLITE_OK Then For $i = 2 To UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 If $i < UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 Then GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i] & "|") Else GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i]) EndIf Next _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "COMMIT;") Are there any other solution to retrieve 8000+ records from a SQLite database?
      Thank you very much

      Hi huys !
       how are you ? family ? dog, cat ? well..
       
      I've got a problem: _GUICtrlComboBox_GetCueBanner
      i can't get it to work.
      Simple: even the example from help does'nt work...
       
      I insist, it's excactly the example from the help, no modifications
      #include <GuiComboBox.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $g_idMemo Example() Func Example() Local $idCombo ; Create GUI GUICreate("ComboBox Get Count", 400, 296) $idCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 2, 2, 396, 296) _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($idCombo, "Select an Item") $g_idMemo = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 50, 376, 234, $WS_VSCROLL) GUICtrlSetFont($g_idMemo, 9, 400, 0, "Courier New") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Add files _GUICtrlComboBox_BeginUpdate($idCombo) _GUICtrlComboBox_AddDir($idCombo, @WindowsDir & "\*.exe") _GUICtrlComboBox_EndUpdate($idCombo) MemoWrite("Cue Banner: " & _GUICtrlComboBox_GetCueBanner($idCombo)) ; Loop until the user exits. Do Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete() EndFunc ;==>Example ; Write a line to the memo control Func MemoWrite($sMessage) GUICtrlSetData($g_idMemo, $sMessage & @CRLF, 1) EndFunc ;==>MemoWrite I also added the display of the cuebanner in the loop.
      It never display what actually appears in the combo
      If you can show me any king of working example.
      Thanks Guys !
      Nicolas.
