Combo color problems


Recommended Posts

Experiencing some color problems with a Combo control on a tab

when using the example program, I noticed the following:

- first display of combo1 uses same background color as window background (grey)

- first display of combo2 uses white as bkcolor

- after tabbing all fields the combo2 gets a blue/grey bkcolor (0x7F9DB9)

- switching between tabs turns the bkcolor of combo2 back to white.

Looks like a bug in the initial bkcolor of a combo on a tab control

Is it possible to control the bkcolor of both combo controls ?

Tried GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x00ff00) with each combo without success

Using autoit3 v3.1.1.68(beta)

Thx, Hans

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$gui = GuiCreate("ComboBox Test", 350, 254)
; --- Create INPUT and COMBO controls on window
  $Label1 = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Inputbox", 20, 20, 50, 20)
  $Input1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 80, 20, 120, 20)
  $Combo1 = GuiCtrlCreateCombo("", 80, 50, 150, 21, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
  GUICtrlSetData(-1,"AutoIt|v3|is|freeware|BASIC-like|scripting|language","AutoIt")

; --- Create TAB with INPUT and COMBO controls
$tab=GUICtrlCreateTab (10, 90, 330, 140)
$tab0=GUICtrlCreateTabitem ("Test") 
   $Label2 = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Inputbox", 20, 130, 50, 20)
   $Input2 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 80, 130, 120, 20)
   $Combo2 = GuiCtrlCreateCombo("", 80, 160, 150, 21, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
   GUICtrlSetData(-1,"AutoIt|v3|is|freeware|BASIC-like|scripting|language","AutoIt")
$tab1=GUICtrlCreateTabitem ("Dummy")
GUICtrlCreateTabitem ("")  ; End tabcontrol, realy needed ?

ControlFocus($gui, "", $Input1) ; focus on first field
GuiSetState()
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    if $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then  ExitLoop
WEnd
Exit

Welcome to the forums!

I think that this thread declares this behaviour as a bug. From what's written there, it appears that a fix will be released in the next beta.

My fault, I should have checked the v3 bug section.

Looks like the same problem, will wait for the next beta and check it again

thx

It could be a bug but I am wondering whahy you use $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST? The script seems to work the same without. :whistle:

This style not allow change editbox content, and you can open list with click on the field (not only arrow). I usually prefer to use it...
