With the latest compiler version (8.70) I have the following problem with %`ls list boxes with drop down combo box:
If at least one of the entries in the character-array exceeds the predefined width of the listbox, the listbox is automatically extended and hides controls which are placed on the right side of the listbox or extends over the rim of the dialog box.
In former versions the character strings in the list are simply cutted off, which was ok for my purposes.
Is there a way to force the 'old' behaviour?
The best solution would be, if there is a way to realize a similar behaviour as in other programs, where the listboxes are resizable as long as the drop down box is closed.

It is possible that this is an issue that has been fixed so I will send you a link to a new set of DLLs via a personal message.

If not then please supply a short sample program that illustrates how %`ls is used.

Paul,

I still get the same results.
But I am not sure, if I updated the compiler correctly. I copied the new dlls into my FTN95 folder. Is it correct, that the prompted compiler version is still v8.70.0?

here is a simple program, that shows the problem:
Code:

Program test_ls


 integer :: winio@, iw, i, n_items, isel 

 character(len=20),dimension(10) :: item_list   
 
 
 do i=1,10
   write(item_list(i),'(a,i5)')'Entry',i
 enddo
 write(item_list(5),'(a,i5)')'ABCDEFGHIJKLM',i
 n_items = 10
 isel = 1

 
 iw = winio@ ('%`10.3ls[no_border] %bt[Close]&',item_list, n_items, isel)
 iw = winio@ ('%nl%10rs',item_list(1))
 
 stop
end 


If I delete the line with extending the length of the 5th array entry, everything works fine.

There is a new feature for %`ls that has been added to avoid a situation where the dropdown chevron on the right overwrites the text in the box.

I don't think that we can backtrack on this so I have added a new option for you for %`ls that restores the former behaviour. It is %`ls[fixed_width].

I will send you a personal message with a link for a new set of DLLs.

As before, this does not affect the version number for FTN95.

I realised this morning that there is another issue that is revealed by your sample program. The close button should appear to the right of the combobox and not under it.

This will not affect you if you want to keep the width of the combobox the same as before. You will still need to use the new option to fix it.

I have now fixed this secondary issue. If you need the fix then please let me know and I will send you a link to a new set of DLLs.

Paul,

thanks for the bugfix, this solves the main issue with the comboboxin my application. Nevertheless I would like to see, if the fix of the second issue improves the usage of the combobox.
Do you think that it would be possible to add the resize-feature also for the drop-down feature (%`ls) if the resize is suppressed as long as the drop-down box is open (like the behaviour of the list of recent files in the standard file open dialog)?

The width of the dropdown part of a combobox is always the same as the initial width.
