Remove items from combobox

 

Hello!

Is it possible to remove items from a Combobox?
I know that CComboBox.AddItem() can be used to add items to Combobox but I cannot figure out how to remove items from Combobox.


Thanks for taking your time.

CComboBox has the following virtual methods. So use the ItemDelete one.

   virtual bool      ItemAdd(const string item,const long value=0)                    { return(m_list.ItemAdd(item,value));          }
   virtual bool      ItemInsert(const int index,const string item,const long value=0) { return(m_list.ItemInsert(index,item,value)); }
   virtual bool      ItemUpdate(const int index,const string item,const long value=0) { return(m_list.ItemUpdate(index,item,value)); }
   virtual bool      ItemDelete(const int index)                                      { return(m_list.ItemDelete(index));            }
   virtual bool      ItemsClear(void)                                                 { return(m_list.ItemsClear());                 }

When in doubt, look at the source code for the Standard Library ... "MQL5\Include\Controls\ComboBox.mqh"

I couldn't find those virtual methods.

It worked as I expected.
Thank you so much.

You are welcome! Virtual methods are not described in the documentation unfortunately. You can only find out about them by looking at the source code. That is why I stated "When in doubt, look at the source code".
