I've a dialog class derived from a CDialog with class wizard by specifying the IDD dialog resource. I've created a combo box using resource tools. When I run the application and I click on combo box it doesn't shows the list content (it's too little to see), I must use arrows to move throught content. Is it a bug?

When you are designing the combo in the editior click on its drop box to cause it to open. you can then resize its size.

css, that's true. You have to click on the down-arrow when designing the dialog in the Resource Editor. Then you'll see the initial size of the drop-down listbox part of the combo. Then you can resize it - it's really pretty small. Unfortunately this behaviour of the ResEdit is sort of hidden. It took me about 2 hours some time ago to discover this :(

If you mean that when you run the app it does not initially display, use SetCurSel() to set the selection.

Hi,
While designing the combobox
1. Click at the combo button on the ToolBox,
2. Dont just click at the dialog instead drag right and then down till ur desired height is achieved.

im not kidding this will work,
bye ,
Arun
