/did -c on a combobox

/did -c on a combobox - 24/08/04 08:40 AM

Ok, this has me a bit confused... I'm trying to use /did -c to select a part of the text in the edit line on a combo box, but when I try to do that the whole text disapears... it works fine on a normal editbox.

The helpfile doesn't say it doesn't work on combo boxes... but it also doesn't say it does.. I figured that the editline on a combo is the same as an editbox.. or am I mistaken? Maybe someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong, or confirm that this doesn't work?

This is the format I used: /did -c dname id 0 [start] [end]

Thanks.

/did -c dname id <line>

That's the syntax you shld be using. It's not meant to select multiple lines I don't think.

Oh, maybe my explanation was a bit unclear. I wan't to select a part of the text on the edit line. I'm was trying to create a script which completes a word on the line, using entries in the combobox. The added part of the word should then be selected, so you can keep on typing.

From what I've seen this isn't possible I'm afraid, but what I'd do if I wasn't using a drop down combo box is just use a listbox in conjunction with an editbox with a small bit of code to simulate the effect of a combobox

That's too bad.. ohwell can't have it all. I'm using a dropdown, so I don't think a list would do me any good, thanks anyway. smile
