ComboBox ReadOnly

6 posts in this topic

There is a control or property for the combo box that makes the combo list read-only. Where by the user can only select items in the combo box as a list. You cannot edit the combo box and the items in the drop down list appear as a list item would appear.

Can anyone give some examples?

Try this

#include <GuiCombo.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
$cbex = GUICreate("can't edit the combobox",300,200)

$Combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 18, 100, 200, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL,$CBS_SORT))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

GUICtrlSendMsg($Combo ,$EM_SETREADONLY,false, 0)

for $n = 1 to 10
GUICtrlSetData($Combo,'item ' & $n)
Next
GUICtrlSetData($Combo,'item 1')

while 1

$m = GUIGetMsg()
if $m = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then ExitLoop
    
WEnd

Try this

Why GUICtrlSendMsg($Combo ,$EM_SETREADONLY,false, 0) and #include <GuiCombo.au3> ?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate('', 120, 40)
GUICtrlCreateCombo('', 10, 10, 100, 200, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL))

For $i = 1 To 50
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, 'Entry ' & $i)
Next
GUICtrlSetData(-1, 'Entry 1')

GUISetState()

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
WEnd

Yep, the CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style is all it takes. The default style is CBS_DROPDOWN (minus the LIST), which makes the dropdown editable.

@xcal: Yes you're right. I didn't need those lines so they should have been removed.
