Hi ,
Has anyone made a multicolumn combobox using CDK? I am unable to use
3rd party comboboxes as the application crashes. I am using CTD 1.5.1 ptf 6.

TIA

Hi Prakash,

have you tried "cListViewDropDown" from "vtLstVw.apl"? Maybe this is what
you are looking for.

Regards,

Gerhard.

Hi ,
Thanks for the suggestion but the list view has some limitations.

1.It shows the other columns only when it is dropped down. On selecting ,
only the 1st column is displayed.
2.I would like to have search options within the combo columns.

Means in the attached , u could see , i would set the focus on the 2nd
column and Type I then the value matching will be narrowed down. This is
also not there.

So if its possible to get the logic behind how they designed this multicol
listbox , i could try extending the same. THats why i chose cdk bcos in the
ctd version which we use, 1.5.1 ptf 6, we already have an activeX item which
has the features which i mentioned but it keeps crashing and
Jim Mac says its a bug which is fixed only in 2.1 .

Thanks a lot for the reply but , if u have any suggestion , pls do reply
back.

Prakash,

what about "ComboDF" at www.joergellinghaus.de? Maybe this would be a way to
create the control by yourself...

I don't know about the bug using ActiveX in TD 1.5.1 (quite old, isn't
it...?), but have you tried to put the actual control on a form which you
can create / destroy then? And did you try to disable the control before
closing the window?

Hope this will help you,

Gerhard.
