ive tried these, all to no avail
cbb.setStyle( "dropDownBorderStyle", "none" )
cbb.setStyle( "borderStyle", "none" )
cbb.setStyle( "border", "none" )
cbb.boundingBox_mc._visible = false;
cbb.drawFocus = undefined;
i think i am going to scream and commit blue murder if i can't fix this problem. :)
and i've tried a million other things since then. i'm a calm and patient man - im british for god's sake! - but after the day i've had i'm about ready to strangle the _______ who made this component. let me try, tho, to be calm and rational about it in order that i can actually explain and solve this problem.
the issue is that the swf this combobox sits in used to be a standalone but now has to be loaded into another preloading sw and when comboboxs aren't directly on the _root, they don't work proply. you get it to work by doing:
comboBoxParent_mc._lockroot = true;
which is fine, sorta works. textformatting is out the window but that's ok. more important losses are:
1. that ___ing green rectangle!!!!!!
2. the fact that when you open the combo and start scrolling, either with the arrow keys or the scrollbar, the box ____ing closes on your first scroll action!!!!!!!! making it utterly utterly useless.
so i put the combobox in the preloader instead. god knows what happened there but the combobox just turned into a white rectangle with a black border.
so i started with a fresh swf and just a combobox and built my preloader step by step carefully around the CB's delicate little _rs_. which was fine until it got to the compilation stage at which point i put it online and whereas the swf was actually 350x350 it would only ever display at about 500x80!!!!
i mean really. what good is this component?
answers below please. please restore my faith and tell me how i can get this b_tch to listen to me. or, alternatively, point me to someone else's combobox THAT ACTUALLY WORKS!
'pologies for the needless invective. s'been a tough day.
This usually works for me:
cbb.drawFocus = undefined;
cbb.dropdown.drawFocus = undefined;
I was fighting with this problem more than 1 year.
I use the code below and all combos work fine for me.
I hope it does help you.
If not, then -
if you load several movieclips - MCs or swf files - and if for ex. all or some have also a combo in their Library, this could cause problems. Sometimes a combo does not open or leave a green frame as you have now.
Try to ADD or DELETE a combo from the library in a swf in a lower level.
And for the combo the code I use:
myCombo.text_mc.boundingBox_mc.drawFocus = null;
myCombo.text_mc.boundingBox_mc.focusTextField = null;
myCombo.focusEnabled = false;
myCombo.vPosition = 0;
Hope it helps,
