I Need a ComboBox

The standard combobox that comes with VB doesn't support the MouseDown/MouseMove/MouseUp events.

I'm looking for a freeware, non-data aware, combobox that supports MouseMove events (MouseDown and MouseUp are optional).  It must also support all other properties/events/methods that the standard does.
Hopefully source code will be included.

download this file: ftp.ecf.com/users/cantrell/pub/fm20.dll
put it in your windows\system directory and add it to your project components. that will give you a combo box with all of the MouseMove events including all the standard ones, and even a few more nice ones.

Enjoy.

I'm sorry, but I was unable to download the file you specified.  I was only able to get to about 800K and then it wouldn't get any more.

Just out of curiosity, how is a dll going to give me a combobox with the requirements I need?

It is 'Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library' and it gives you several updated form objects. Specifically the combo box with the Mouse Options.

I will check on the .dll and see why you're having this problem. You might want to try to use an ftp client, or the browser to get it. Or, if you want, send me your e-mail address and I will e-mail it to you...

I have fm20.dll (version 2.01) on my machine.
This doesn't give me the mouse events.  Is the fm20.dll you have a newer version?  Is it possible to dl this from the ms download site?

Hi cliffABB,
Mine is version 2.01 also. When I include it in my project components it gives me several additional controls that are the same controls as the ones in the standard project (text box, frame, label, combo box, etc.). However, the ones it gives me are *ENHANCED* over the original ones (i.e. the mouse events for the combo box, autosize on the text box, and about a hundred other additional ones for other controls).

Try this: Start a new project (standard exe) and look at the basic standard controls that the project gives you, then go to "project, components" and add the "Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library" then click ok. That will give you another text box, label, combo box, etc. control(s). Now add the combo box and look at the events. There is now mouse events for the combo box.

For what it's worth, I put fm20.zip on the ftp site since you were having problems with it. I can't really see it being different from the one you have but you're welcome to it. It's half the size zipped up.

Good luck and let me know how it goes.
