ComboBox entry too long
« on: March 25, 2020, 02:19:48 PM »
Hi, chaps.

If the length of my ComboBox is quite short and the text contents of my list items is too long I only see the first part of the text. Is it possible to have the full text appear as a tooltip type thing? I think AutoCAD layer dropdown behaves like this.

I could be wrong, but I don't think the Windows common control combo dropdown supports this, so it would require a custom tooltip. That is certainly possible, but will take some work. I advise to submit it as a feature request (after checking to make sure it hasn't been requested before).
