Control like combo box ..... - slinuxgeek - 2012-03-15 07:51
Is there any control which can display pull down menu or combo box , which occupies place of single control like textbox or button, but when you click on the arrow on right side of it , it will display list of choices , you select one choice ,
then list disappears & the selected choice text appears on the control as label & according to selection some action is fired.

But it's possible to make your own.
When you click the button set focus on a list control (which is hidden unless focused) which contains the choices. When a choice is selected set focus back to the button which displays the string you picked.

Hi, Hitcher Thanks for Help.
I tried your suggestion , I put one list control (with two choices) just below a button with following condition:
<visible>Control.HasFocus(4) | Control.HasFocus(5) </visible>
where 4 is id of button & 5 is id of the list control. when I move mouse over button the list becomes visible otherwise not visible. This is ok but I want to that list should be visible when I click on the button not just focus,
so what should be the condition in <visible> ?? </visible> of list control ?
And when I click on a choice of the list control the action is performed which I have written in
<onclick> ... </onclick>
but the label of the above button should also be changed as with selected choice label & list should become invisible.
So how can I do that?
Please HELP Thank You.

Add <visible allowhiddenfocus="true">Control.HasFocus(5)</visible> to the list control. To your button add <onclick>SetFocus(5)</onclick>.
To your list items add <onclick>SetString(choice,label of the item)</onclick>. You can display the string with $INFO[Skin.String(choice)].

Oh Thank You `Black its working !!
Ah but it tricked me !!
I move the mouse to the button & click it so it fires : SetFocus(5) means list becomes visible , then I move my mouse pointer to point to the list , in the mid time the button again gains the focus & list becomes invisible.
How can I resolve the issue ?
Thanks for Help .
