How to create multiple buttons/inputs that display based on a combo box choice?

3 posts in this topic

I searched for "multiple windows" and "multiple display" and I cannot find out how to do this, I also looked under the guictrlcreategroup styles

I want to have a different group of buttons/input boxes display depending on the combo box selection, does anyone know how to do this?

gte,

3 possibilites spring to mind:

1. Create the necessary buttons/inputs as required when the combobox selection has been made.

2. Rename/Show/Hide a range of preexisting buttons/inputs when the combobox selection has been made.

3. Create as many buttons/inputs as you will ever need and then Show/Hide to leave those necessary when the combobox selection has been made.

Easiest is probably No 1 - you could always make a nice little GUI out of it. ;-)

Thanks Melba

I'll try the first one

I was hoping you could call groups, but I guess not
