Problem


Horizontal scroll bars do not appear in combo boxes.


Cause


Object Factory cannot create a horizontal scroll bar for a combo box. The Auto Horz Scroll check box under Style does not create a horizontal scroll bar, but allows the edit line portion of the combo box to scroll the text to the right automatically when the user enters text past the end of the line.


Action


Put the following line in the code after the Combo Box is created. (This code goes in the constructor protect block.)

PostMessage(*pComboBox1, CB_SETHORIZONTALEXTENT, 800, 0L );
