Combo with text not in the list

4 posts in this topic

Hi,
I'd like to make a Combo which displays "Day", but once you click on it "Day" is not actually on the list and cannot be chosen again after you picked something from the list.
Here's what i made :
 

$cmb1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Day", 260, 210, 50, 20, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData($cmb1, "01|02|03|04|05|06|07|08|09|10|11|12|13|14|15|16|17|18|19|20|21|22|23|24|25|26|27|28|29|30|31")

However this doesn't work.
It displays "Day", but "Day" somehow become part of the list and you can select it at the top of the list.
If i add a | before 01, then the text is not displayed at all and the box is blank.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Cotino,

Look for _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner in the Help file.
