  • Checkbox text won't wrap

    I'm trying to set a DDT checkbox to multiline without much
    success. I set the control width small enough so that all
    the text won't show on one line and also used the %BS_MULTILINE
    style in the CONTROL ADD CHECKBOX statement.

    However, no luck. I'm starting to wonder if I have some weird
    video driver issues (see my other post about "Both Option Buttons
    On"), but the checkboxes work fine in other Win apps and in VB.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

              %BS_AUTOCHECKBOX Or %BS_MULTILINE Or %WS_VISIBLE Or %WS_CHILD
          Dialog Show Modal hDlg
       End Function

      Thanks Semen!

      Your sample code works, but I don't understand why I can't do
      this with the CONTROL ADD CHECKBOX statement. Is this a Windows
      issue or a DDT problem?

      Anyway, many thanks for the help!

        Here - DDT.

        With buttons a question is not so obvious.
        1) Not DDT - it simply execute SendMessage ... BM_SETCHECK
        2) Windows - also question, because MSDN talks simply
        An application sends a BM_SETCHECK message to set the check state of a radio button or check box.
        No one word about WS_GROUP options.

          Mark;

          Regarding the WS_GROUP style...

          First time you use WS_GROUP style when creating your controls starts the grouping,
          the second time you use WS_GROUP style to create another control marks the end of that group.
          The next control created with WS_GROUP starts the next grouping of controls etc.

            I have the six CONTROL ADD OPTION... statements consecutively,
            with the 1st, 3rd and 5th ones with the %WS_GROUP option and
            the buttons work fine in the UI.

            I was under the impression that Windows itself didn't allow
            multiple option buttons within a group to be TRUE, but that
            seems not to be the case.
