Having problems getting "advanced" rendering to work when designing a VB.NET 2005 user control
Posted on 2006-07-17
I need to create a user control similar to a combobox, where if you hit an arrow to the right of it, it will pop up a list of selections that is rendered on top of all other controls on the form.
This is all fine except for this issue: with the Microsoft combobox control, when you select that arrow, the list of selections doesn't get clipped off by other controls on the form. With my user control, I have to say that the control gets bigger (i.e. me.Height += 150), and the selections can get "hidden" (trapped behind) other controls on the form.
How do I get the rendering I'm looking for? (note that me.bringtofront won't solve this issue in all cases)
Thanks in advance!
