RE: Modality and new windows
Message ID:
Hi Dave, 

There is Wx::ComboCtrl



Which gives you a custom pop-up window for what is essentially a ComboBox.

I'm pretty sure it's in the demo where it shows you how to have a three
column RadioButton instead of a ListCtrl for a Combo.

Have fun.

I was thinking that a dialog window was a bit heavy for just a popup 
window displaying a list of autocompletions. I did try a panel but that 
seems to need an associated frame or dialog.

Thanks! I have a few books of them here which I almost guard too 
jealously to benefit from them. ;)
