Drop Down menu autoupdate according to another selection

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm making a simple gui that first you get to select "month", then you get to select day.

Right now the program will only retrieve the "month" when the OK button is pressed, but I want the second drop down menu (Day) to update itself according to which month is selected without the user having to press OK

So for example, if the user selects March, then the second drop down menu would have 31 days automatically,

I know my code is kind of long, but I don't know a better way to deal with this issue :P thanks

You don't need a button to inform your program that it's now possible to update the day combo box, just handle the $CBN_SELCHANGE notification within $WM_COMMAND notification. If don't use $CBS_SORT it's much simpler, just get the current selected index and update the day combo box.

@Zedna, thank you very much ! One additional question, Do you know how I can change the font of the First drop down menu so that they are the same size?

how come that I have GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 300) yet the first drop down menu is still so small compared to the second one when the code is telling it to be font 14?
