Common Dialog for Fonts (Disable or hide SCRIPT combo box)

Posted on 2005-05-12

It seems the Script combo selection in a Font Common Dialog does nothing.
There's no way to set it or to get a value from it. Is there a way I can disable
it or hide it and keep all other options on that dialog?

    Using the built in commondialog control, no. It is a 'bug' that microsoft forgot about, but which is fixed/accessible in stuff like .net.

    If it really bugs you, you can use something like a commondialog class file, i.e., from:

    It will also actually reduce your filesize (no need to include the MS comdlg32.ocx control) with this type of .class file, and plus you get to totally customize it.
