Combo Box Size [message #459771] Tue, 16 August 2005 07:07 Go to next message

Hi;

When I want to increase the height of the Combo, it does not effect the
original size. This is design decision or there is another problem with me.

For example;

Combo combo = new Combo(...,...);
combo.setBounds(,,width,50);

then combo does not show the height 50.

Why?

Thanks in advance;

If this is on a Windows platform, read on, otherwise ignore.
Windows ignores combo box height settings.
This is because it has to ensure that there is enough height to display the
text as well as the caret.
The only way to change the height is to change the font.
Alternatively you can use CCombo.

This is the behavior on all platforms. If it is not, please enter a bug
report.
