Poplist AutoVisible

Post by r-tea » Mon Feb 18, 2019 11:32 pm

As Poplist.class derives from Listview.class then why Hollywood doesn't recognize AutoVisible attribute in this piece of code:?

Code: Select all

...
<Poplist id="str_name" Contents="black" Notify="Acknowledge" AutoVisible="True">
<item>aliceblue</item>
...
It says "Unknown attiibute 'AutoVisible' in line ..."

It doesn't derive from Listview class, it derives from Group class, see MUI documentation:

Hmmmm.... indeed.
Then, is there a way to make Listview object popping up same way as the Poplist one? I need Listview because of AutoVisible attribute. It makes my program much more comfortable.

Would be great if I could use it. Unfortunately MUI Royale doesn't support this class.

Then you could use a borderless window with an listview. This should be possible, or not?

Comparing to a listview it's very uncomfortable for an user. Kind of prosthetic.

You could make it look like a mui poplist object.
The user won't see any difference.

I think so too. AFAIR Popobject is implemented in the very same way...
