GUI_ACCEPTFILES in combo boxes

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

It seems that the GUI_ACCEPTFILES style does not currently work with combo boxes, even if the compo style is CBS_DROPDOWN instead of CBS_DROPDOWNLIST.

Ad in CBS_DROPDOWN mode the combo basically behaves as an edit box, I think that it would make a lot of sense to make GUI_ACCEPTFILES work with combo boxes too.

Could that be done?

Thanks!

Actually _it is_ possible to change (by typing) the text in the combo box. To do so you must change the style from CBS_DROPDOWNLIST to CBS_DROPDOWN. If found out about this on the AutoIt help file (styles section).

So in theory it should be possible to do (or at least it looks like it!)

Yeah I wanted to do something similar myself. I made a recreation of the Windows Run dialog using a combo box, and wanted to be able to drag and drop files into it, but it wasn't possible.
