    IMO, cwComboBox should be a combination of cwTextBox, cwDropDown and cwDropDownList, or a combination of cwTextBox, cwButton and cwVList.

    Why is there no cwComboBox component in vbWidgets?

    Re: Could someone direct me to the Cairo Widgets Tut Re.......

    Ah thanks SearchingDataOnly.... Um, just wondering, is there any way to place these cwTextBoxes and such on a standard VB Form? I saw in JPBro's example he used a Cairo form. I can't do that yet, as I've got too many VB controls doing their thing to convert over to a new system.. Waaay too many.

    Basically, I was hoping to just swap the old ugly VB Combo boxes with something cleaner from Cairo. But this looks like a bit of a struggle....

    Many people have asked this question, and all I was able to do was copy-paste the previous answer again:

    In most cases, I use a ucPanel to achieve the interaction between VB6-Forms and RC6.Widgets.

    If you search for the keyword "ucPanel" in vbForums, you will find many very useful RC5/RC6 examples.

    Note:
    The ucPanel I am talking about is a VB6 custom user control with only a dozen lines of code, so this ucPanel can be placed in any VB6 container, including VB6-Form.

    Thank you SDO, I am familiar with the panel, a little bit, not much, I sorta looked at it, for a split second, probably.
    Anyway, this'll help me become more familiar with both. Thank you for the help!
