There has been some discussion within this thread about replacing the Listbox control.
I have created a multi-function listbox that is free. Download a copy of it here:
Let me know what you think.
It should work on Windows too. I can’t check it on Linux.
Mmm… doesn’t compile. Can’t check the error… flashes.
Is there an example project which shows the listbox capabilities without first read all the manual and try?
Gotta love auto spell correction

I will create a test project and repackage the MagicListBox.
Give me an hour or so.
i simply copy the whole folder of MagicListbox to my project. Then i change my default listbox to magic listbox.
When i run the application, it simply stop when i open the form with magiclistbox using frmScreenSetup.show
I have created a test project within the package (folder Test Project).

Oops! Now corrected - thanks for pointing that out…

I cannot recreate this problem. Have you placed a clean copy of MagicListbox on your form?
I have now tested the project on Windows 7 Professional and it runs fine.
No… i just change the superclass from listbox to magiclistbox. Maybe that is why i am having problem.
What new functions does it offer?
Here is a short extract from the manual:
The basic enhancements to the standard listbox are:
Ability to set the color of the text displayed
Ability to set the background color of the table
Ability to set the highlight color of the table
Ability to set alternating colors
Ability to outline the text with a round-cornered box
Ability to outline the text with a square-cornered box
The control adds the following controls within the listbox:
Drop Down List
Check Box (enhanced)
Date Selection drop-down
Time Selection drop-down
Try it with a fresh MagicListbox.
i look at your demo… how do i lock the fields (like standard listbox) but still be able to scroll
I don’t understand your question.
By lock, do you mean make them not editable? If so, just change the column type parameter from xE to just x (where x is the type).
