Hot Key controls
If i'm not mistaken, a hot key control is like a white box which contains items which can be selected (usually used to set options). Has anybody got a link, any info (such as functions associated with them) or even something to look up on MSDN?
Also are 'Accelerators'. The menu items with the underscore.
Put an amperstand in front of the letter you want the underscore 'under' in the menu items title (not ID) ie &File
Put this line into the winmain after the window is created but before your call to ShowWindow() UpdateWindow()
// Load accelerators for main menu (HACCEL hAccel)
hAccel = LoadAccelerators( hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDR_MAINMENU));
I know what those are. That's not what i'm talking about. Here's a screenshot of what i'm talking about... (its just from an Admin Mod configure utility)
its like a list box but it doesn't drop down or anything. Loom at the pic
List boxes have no drop-down feature. The best feature they offer in that regard is simple scrolling to highlight a certain number of items. If the window region is large enough, like in your screenshot, all the items are displayed without a scrollbar. You may be getting list boxes confused with drop-down boxes and combo boxes, which do have a drop-down feature.
