multi select list with scrollbar

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone, I have a feeling this is not possible based on the searching I've been doing but figured I'd put it up on here to see if someone knows a secret. I'm creating a list via GUICtrlCreateList with the $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL flag. I've added enough items that there should be a vertical scrollbar but it's not showing. However, if I take away the $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL flag, the scrollbar is there. Anybody know how to get the scrollbar and have the ability to select multiple items?

I imagine you are simply creating your ListBox with just the $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL style - like this:

$cList = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 200, 100, $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL)

By doing so you overwrite all the existing styles - which are $LBS_SORT, $WS_BORDER &, $WS_VSCROLL. You need to combine the styles so that they are all applied:

$cList = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 200, 100, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_LIST, $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL)

Now you will have both a scrollbar and the ability to select more than one item.

Reading the Setting Styles tutorial in the Wiki will explain this in more detail.
