More Sanples: \hmg\samples\combo_5


Español:

- Nuevo: Propiedad 'DroppedWidth' para el control ComboBox.
Esta propiedad permite establecer el ancho de la lista desplegable. 'DroppedWidth' no puede ser menor al ancho del control. Ejemplos: \hmg\samples\combo_5.

- Nuevo: Evento 'OnDropDown' para el control ComboBox.
Este evento será ejecutado cuando el usuario abra la lista desplegable. Ejemplos: \hmg\samples\combo_5.

- Nuevo: Evento 'OnCloseUp' para el control ComboBox. Se ejecutará cuando el usuario cierre la lista desplegable. Ejemplos: \hmg\samples\combo_5.

- Solucionado: El item seleccionado es correctamente preservado luego de un 'refresh' en el control ComboBox que use la propiedad 'ItemSource'.

- Nuevo: Propiedad 'Image' para el control COmboBox.

La propiedad 'Image' se usa para especificar un array conteniendo los nombres de archivos de imagen (o recursos) que se quiera asociar al control.

Al agregar un item, debe especificarse el número de índice de la imagen (basado en cero) y el texto asociados al mismo.

Al agregar items en la definición del control, debe usarse un array de dos dimensiones (una fila por cada item y dos columnas). La primera columna debe contener el número de índice de la imagen (posiciónen el array de imágenes definido mediante la propiedad 'image') y la segunda columna debe contener el texto asociado al item.

Cuando se agregan items usando el método 'AddItem' debe usarse un array de dos elementos: El primero, el índice de la imagen y el segundo el texto asociado al item.

Al leer el contenido de un item por medio de la propiedad 'item' se obtendrá un array de dos elementos, según se describió en el punto anterior.

Cuando las propuiedades 'Image' e 'ItemSource' se usan simultáneamente, 'ItemSource' debe especificarse como una lista conteniendo dos nombres de campo, correspondiendo al indice de la imagen y al texto de cada item, respectivamente.

Las propiedades 'Sort' e 'Image' no pueden usarse simultáneamente.

Ejemplo:

DEFINE COMBOBOX Combo1
ROW 10
COL 250
ITEMSOURCE CIDADES->CODIGO , CIDADES->DESCRICAO
VALUE 2
WIDTH 200
HEIGHT 100
IMAGE { 'Img1.bmp','Img2.bmp','Img3.Bmp','Img4.Bmp' }
DROPPEDWIDTH 350
ONDROPDOWN PlayBeep()
ONCLOSEUP PlayAsterisk()
END COMBOBOX

<...>

aItems := {}

aadd ( aItems , { 2 , 'Item 01' } )
aadd ( aItems , { 0 , 'Item 02' } )
aadd ( aItems , { 3 , 'Item 03' } )
aadd ( aItems , { 1 , 'Item 04' } )

DEFINE COMBOBOX Combo2
ROW 10
COL 10
WIDTH 100
ITEMS aItems
VALUE 1

Thanks Roberto.

New features make HMG more powerful.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

Roberto,

Bugreport for HMG 2.5.5 Image ComboBox on Win98SE:

Excuse me but a new Image ComboBox is not work at Win98 (a such control is not displayed). :(
The ComboBox control without an Image clause still works OK.
:roll:
Kind Regards,

Thanks for the report.

I've tested on XP and Vista only. I have not Win9x machines near to me. I'll install one in a VM as soon as possible.

Maybe I must take a look at WinApi docs for WIn9x compatibility issues too.
Do you know if a special care must be taken under Win9x for COmboEx?... It could save to me a lot of time.

Thanks again.

Roberto.
