Hi
I have been trying to get a CComboBox with a Drop-List to show fonts. I think Ive done everything right but I still cant seem to see a full-drop down list. I get a very small list with 2 buttons for scrolling up and down and i can view only one of the items and not all.
Note that I also do FontComboBox.ShowDropDown(TRUE);

Please help !!

I created the combobox using the Resource View tab in Visual Studio.
The code in my OnInitDialog() is as show below:

BOOL ConfigDialog::OnInitDialog()
{
      //Load the fonts
      InstalledFontCollection *installedFontCollection =
            new InstalledFontCollection();

      // Get the count of FontFamily objects.
      int count = installedFontCollection->GetFamilyCount();
      cout<<"installedFontCollection :"<<count<<endl;

      FontFamily *fontFamilies ;
      FontFamily *loopFamilies ;
      fontFamilies = new FontFamily[count];

      int temp = 0;
      installedFontCollection->GetFamilies( count,fontFamilies,&temp );

      loopFamilies = fontFamilies;
      // loop and get all font family names.
      for(int j = 0; j < count; ++j)
      {
            WCHAR  familyName[LF_FACESIZE];
            cout<<"FamilyName::"<<familyName<<endl;
            loopFamilies->GetFamilyName(familyName,LANG_NEUTRAL);  
            CString name(familyName);
            cout<<"Name::"<<name<<endl;
            FontComboBox.AddString(name);
            loopFamilies++;
      }
      cout<<"No of items :"<<FontComboBox.GetCount()<<endl;

      FontComboBox.ShowDropDown(TRUE);

      return TRUE;  // return TRUE  unless you set the focus to a control
}

You can modify that in the Dialog resource itself

1. Place the Combo in dialog resource, so the selection will be in that control
2. Click on the drop arrow of the combo
3. Now you can see the selection has changed a little bit
4. Now Increase its hight by dragging the selection handle

Good Luck
