Scrolling the Menu RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a menu which shows all the installed fonts on the system. The menu is very big, and it grows too large to fit the current screen resolution, and thus the scroll buttons are automatically added to the top and bottom. I need to implement either of the following 2 solutions:

    1. Provide for scrolling of the menu with mouse wheel, or
    2. Stop the automatic scroll button from being added at the top, and then implement my own scroll bar in the menu (something like MS Word font selection control)

    Any idea how i can proceed?

  • A menu is just not the right UI control for this.  Use FontDialog, consider a custom drawn ComboBox like Word uses, look at Control Panel + Fonts for ideas.
