using fonts in a combo box item list

Postby JBoyd333 » Thu Mar 27, 2008 7:12 pm

I would like my combo box list to display a list of words, each of which is in English and then Hebrew, something like this:

1 - boy / 'boy' in Hebrew
2 - man / 'man' in Hebrew
etc...

Is there any way to use various fonts in the items in a pull down list?

I tried pasting the Hebrew word in the list, but it changes it to regular characters.

Thanks!

John

A combo box can only display a single font at a time, so it's not possible to display both English and Hebrew in a single combo box. The only way I can think of to do this would be to simulate the functionality of a list box using other NeoBook objects. A sample publication that demonstrates this technique can be downloaded using the link below:
