Get rid of border around a Listbox

3 posts in this topic

I really dont know how to do it..ive never really known how to use extended styles, and have tended to copy-paste examples to get the effect i want, but it says by default a border is put around a listbox..."

style [optional] Defines the style of the control. See GUI Control Styles Appendix.

default ( -1) : $LBS_SORT, $WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL

forced styles : $WS_TABSTOP, $LBS_NOTIFY

So is there anyway i can get rid of this default?

Thanks!

furrycow,

My understanding:

You need to BitOr the styles you want from the default list and use that as the style for your ListBox:

BitOr($LBS_SORT, $WS_VSCROLL)

That way you get the styles you want - and not the whole list.

It is the same thing if you want to use a specific style in a GUICtrlCreate statement - you override the default list unless you add them back in with a BitOr which includes them.

The forced styles are a part of the control and you get them regardless!

Standing by to be contradicted. :-)

Yeah i mean that does make sense! But i cant get it to not show a border regardless, i however have just found that i can use Listview, which actually has a lot neater border for what i need it for, and i can get rid of headers, so essentially looks just like a listbox.

Thanks anyway for your help Melba!
