Is it possible to create a lookup editor control like this
Basically I need to search a list of data based on the user entered in the textfiled. I tried to create this using a container control and listbox. but the listbox is bleeding through and the controls behind the listbox is showing up.
I’m pretty sure Axel Schneider has an example like this …
You could also paint a white rectangle in the backgroundpaint event of the listbox. Might stop the bleeding.
Which system ? Windows ? Mac ?
Indeed on Windows stacking controls leads to bleed through.
Instead of a Container Control, you could use a Floating Window. But that is a bit complex to interact with.
I am at this moment implementing an Excel-style suggestion menu, so I look into this as well. So far the simplest solution I found was to display a contextual menu in CellClick :
[code]Function CellClick(row as Integer, column as Integer, x as Integer, y as Integer) As Boolean
dim base as new MenuItem
Dim m as MenuItem
Msgbox m.text // Here you can use the result of the menu.

Combobox can be used to show only one column. I need to show multiple columns.
it’s not difficult to look at this example and extend it to multiple comboboxes.
