Hi,

 

I am following this to try to write a SDI code: Designing a Dialog Box Overview (intel.com)

 

I have put a Combo Box on my Form, how do I add item in it? Is there a simple code sample?

 

Cheers,

 

Cean

The drop down size is not on the property sheet. In the dialog editor you define the size of a control in the GUI. If you click the combo box drop down button in the GUI to expand it you can drag the grips to change the size.

You're not giving us much to work with. How about ZIPping your project (after doing a Build > Clean) and attaching the ZIP to a reply here?

Hi Steve,

 

I use the template to create a SDI program and add one menu item (tDialog) under the File menu. It opens a Dialog. The Dialog has two Combo boxes. I could add the items now, but when click the Arrow, it doesn't show the list correctly, only a narrow area. Hard to scroll up & down.

 

Cheers,

In the dialog editor you need to define the size of the area when the combo drops down.

Which properties?

 

Sometimes I got the right display without any change. But other times, it only show that narrow strip.

You need a lot more for a combo box. You can start reading here: Using List Boxes and Combo Boxes (intel.com)

Is a combo box really what you want? This combines a list box with a user-entry field.  @andrew_4619 has the right idea on changing the size of the visible box.

It's better the software's default could display correctly at the first place. That is showing a scroll bar with 2 lines with one up arrow and one down arrow. Or a default area bigger than 2 lines. If total items less than default area, no scroll bar is needed.

 

Then, If the user need to change,  he could  go back to design.

The resource editor is a Microsoft Product and is not part of Intel Fortran.
