gmail like edit line drop down

hi, does anyone know how this can be achieved in OI?

The edit line has a drop down icon, when you click it, it opens a small window below the edit line.

This would just be a matter of position the window directly below the edit line? Should be doable?


  • Yes, very doable. The form should be launched using the Dialog_Box function so it is modal. In the CREATE event handler of the form, check for the SIZE property of the editline in the parent form and use this to calculate the new SIZE property of the form you are launching. Then set the value so the form is positioned exactly where you want it.
