Dear friends,

I am loading a textfile ina combobox (cssimple). I would like give to the user the right of writing a word/string in the "editbox" part of this type os combobox, in such way in the fixed list underneath the word
(if there is) will be highlighted!

Thank you in advance,

Hi  letchev,

This is not a solution, but... I was working with TBXToolbar (www.g32.org) for a while. There are a number of controls including edit, combo etc. The good thing for you that there are Themes that you can write yourself/customize howto paint each control at repaint event. So, basically, if you provide a 'blended backgroung' or if you do not paint certain areas, then you will get blended/transparent control. The only thing you have to tweak/rewrite is YouCustomTheme.pas file (there are a lot of examples in a forum). Now hard part: typical Theme weights approx. 100 KB!

ragards,
