Dropdown weirdness...

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a GUI where I've declared a dropdown box as follows:

$combo_platform_change = GUICtrlCreatecombo ("", 40, 120, 180, 30, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST + $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL)
$s_platform_list = "|4100|4105 Olympus|4105 Stornoway|Custom"
$s_last_platform = "4105 Stornoway"
GUICtrlSetData(-1,$s_platform_list,$s_last_platform)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "combo_platform_change_callback")
GUICtrlSetTip(-1, "Each HW platform requires different CCS settings" & @CR & _
                  "Select CUSTOM to change the settings manually")

When compiled, under Windows XP it works just fine. When I click on the dropdown arrow the dropdown appears with the list of elements.

But in Windows NT, when I click on the arrow, an "empty" dropdown appears instead. I can still use the up and down buttons to go through the different options, but I cannot see them in the dropdown.

What am I doing wrong?

Cheers,

Angel

Thanks Josbe. That did the trick. However it is weird that this poblem happens only in Windowx XP...

Windows XP appears to be the only version that ignores the height of the combo box, so XP always shows the full box.

Windows 9x/2000 allow you to restrict the height....

The help file should be more explicit that HEIGHT is the height of the drop-down list thing and not just the textbox thing.

You are right CyberSlug, I was confused by the help file, as I thought that the HEIGHT was for the textbox instead of for the actual dropdown box.
