Another Combo Box issue

Postby Kevin McGinley » Fri Jul 28, 2006 1:27 pm

I have the latest update to NeoBooks. I have noticed that in the comboboxes, the option which before you would check to allow multiple selections of combobox items is NOT there. Has anyone else noticed this? My combobox looks identifical to the one in the help file, except the checkbox to allow multiple selections in comboboxes is missing. I can select multiple items in List Boxes, but not Combo Boxes.

Is it me or bad karma or is it Neobooks?

Can't find the reference now, but it is deliberate that ListBoxes and ComboBoxes behave differently in this regard. I believe the reasoning is that with a ListBox, the user can see several items at once but with a Combobox the "natural" behavior is to select one item and then "collapse" to the one-line state. Moreover, with a listbox, the user can see that she has selected several items; with a Combobox she can see only one selection at a time.

Sam is correct. List Boxes support multiple selections. With Combo Boxes only one item at a time may be selected.
