GUICtrlCreateList limitation

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

I'm having a problem listing more than 50 items in a ListBox using GUICtrlCreateList.

And I think the same limitation applies to ComboBox.

Is there a way to overcome this?

Thank you in advance.

Can't reproduce. Use GuiCtrlSetData() to add values.

Tweaked from helpfile:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)


Func Example()
    Local $MESSAGE = "The following buttons have been clicked"
    Local $add, $clear, $mylist, $close, $msg
    GUICreate("My GUI list") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    $add = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add", 64, 32, 75, 25)
    $clear = GUICtrlCreateButton("Clear", 64, 72, 75, 25)
    $mylist = GUICtrlCreateList("buttons that have been clicked", 176, 32, 121, 97)
    GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 200)    ; to limit horizontal scrolling
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, $MESSAGE)
    for $i = 0 to 100
        GUICtrlSetData(-1, $i)
    $close = GUICtrlCreateButton("my closing button", 64, 160, 175, 25)


    $msg = 0
    While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

            Case $msg = $add
                GUICtrlSetData($mylist, "You clicked button No1|")
            Case $msg = $clear
                GUICtrlSetData($mylist, "")
            Case $msg = $close
                MsgBox(0, "", "the closing button has been clicked", 2)
EndFunc   ;==>Example
