Edit box, with drop down combobox. For predictive text

Recommended Posts

DicatoroftheUSA

I am looking for a way to create a combobox that drops under the cursor of an edit box. In the sort of way scite works when typing out a function. I would like to use it for predictive text, below is an what I am going for.

I would appreciate suggestions on how to attack this problem. Right now I am thinking about just creating a combobox and destoying it, or moving and hiding it. I am drawing up an example, if I get it working I will post it.

      I  possibly misunderstood the value of combo boxes, but I thought you could type a value, press enter and the combo box would store that value.
      The reason for wanting this is to store a history of typed commands into the combo box (accepted by pressing enter).
       
      After hours of trying to trap enter on a combobox I realized that the enter event was not registering.
      I had code like this (which used to work on a input box), but it does not for a combobox (because it does not accept enter)
      unc WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam) Local $nNotifyCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) Local $nID = BitAND($wParam, 0x0000FFFF) If $hWnd = $CmdForm Then If $nID = $ComboInput Then ; useed to work on a normal input box If _IsPressed('0D') Then ; enter was pressed, respond DoCmd() Anyone able to help?

      I am trying to get an image showing through a edit box.  I am only successful in making the edit box totally transparent
      #include-once #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> #include <WinAPISys.au3> #include <colorconstants.au3> ;WS_EX_TRANSPARENT $gui = GUICreate("", 1000, 800, -1, -1, -1 , $WS_EX_LAYERED) ; use layered to get _winapi_setlay... to work $pic = GUICtrlCreatePic("c:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Examples\GUI\Merlin.gif", 0,0,1000, 800) GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) $edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("First line" & @CRLF, 176, 32,200,600) GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,$COLOR_YELLOW) _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($gui,$COLOR_YELLOW,199) ; 199 is alpha (transparency level) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$gui) While 1 $msg = GuiGetMsg() Select Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop Case Else EndSelect WEnd Exit Func Terminate() exit(0) EndFunc So I am making the edit box's background yellow then using the _WINAPI_SetLayeredWIndowAttributes command to make the yellow disappear (which it does), but the alpha level is supposed to give a bit of opaqueness to it, but its not, just making it totally transparent.  The alpha level is in fact affecting the window itself and not the edit box. I only want the edit box to be partially transparent.
      Help appreciated.

      This is how I want: when the user changes the combo, the script will check the text combo. In case of changed text it will ask user if I should rename or add it as a new section and then save. If not changed the text of combo it will ask to save only.
      IF NOT possible, Will it possible with _GUICtrlComboBox__GUICtrlComboBoxEx_Create or _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_Create or not
       
      THANK you very much in advance

      I have a bunch of SDL_Surfaces loaded into memory.  I want to list them in a ComboBox.
      Using this code, I can load images to the combobox from file but not from existing SDL_Surface memory
      CODE ISN"T MEANT TO RUN
      ; Create combobox pic list example $aControl[$iControl_id][$eControl_data] = _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_Create($gui, $data_value, $data_x, $data_y, $data_w, $data_h, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST) ; Image List for ComboboxEx Local $hImage = _GUIImageList_Create($gTile_w, $gTile_h, 6) ; Fill hImage with SDL_Surfaces stored in memory: aNPC_surf[scale][type][way][frame] For $i = 0 To 1 ; This works but only from file: ;_GUIImageList_AddBitmap($hImage, $gFolder_graphics & $gaWorld_info[$player.iWorld_cur][$eWi_filename] & "Tiles\" & $i & ".bmp") ; I've broken up a sprite sheet and want to insert into combobox from memory ;_GUIImageList_Add($hImage, $aNPC_surf[1][1][1][$i]) _GUIImageList_Add($hImage, _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory($aNPC_surf[1][1][1][$i]), True) ;_GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory($aNPC_surf[1][1][1][$i]) ; Add the index number to combobox item _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_AddString($aControl[$eNPC_iPic_type][$eControl_data], $i, $i, $i) Next ; Set hImage list to combobox control _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_SetImageList($aControl[$eNPC_iPic_type][$eControl_data], $hImage) Anyone know if I can convert from SDL_Surface to hBitmap?  Maybe I'm doing something else wrong.
       
      I've seen hBitmap converted to SDL_Surface but I don't really understand it yet:
