Problem about ComboBoxEx with icons on tab ! (SOLVED)

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello, :P

I made 4 tabs and 4 ComboBoxes to experiment ComboBoxEx with icons on tab

- Combo1 use icons. It is on the GUI. No problem. o:)

- Combo2 use icons. It is normally only on the tab2, isn't it !!! >_<

- Combo3 doesn't use icon. It is on the tab3. It is GUICtrlCreateCombo. No problem. :D

- Combo4 doesn't use icon. It is normally only on the tab4, isn't it !!! :idiot:

Tab1 is normally empty ! :)

For me, it's a big blend. I don't understand. Can you explain me how I put a ComboBox with icons only on one tab, not all ! Thank you for your help.

Note : I use the lastest version of AutoIt.

Thank you very much Rasim. >_< It's ok. It's good work. The use of _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_Create is strange compared the mere use of GUICtrlCreateCombo.

I hope that it will be easier in future versions of AutoIt 3. :)

It's because the GuiCtrlCreateComboBox function creates a control that is under AutoIt's supervision, so it works with GuiCtrlCreateTabItem. Any _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_* functions create standard controls that AutoIt does not supervise, so you have to control these yourself.

Using the _GUICtrlTab_* functions do the same thing, and showing / hiding controls on each tab would be up to you as well.

wraithdu,

Thank you for your explanation. It's clear now. :)
