Looking for special list type

Post by Elmi » Thu Feb 24, 2011 2:18 pm

Hi,

I'm looking for a special type of list but I don't know its name. Somebody might know it from MS VisualStudio, it is a horizontal bar of buttons where you can click on some kind of category button which then opens or closes a list of sub-buttons where exactly one of them can be selected (it is used within their GUI-designer to select a UI element there which afterwards can be put into e.g. a window).

Two questions about that:

1. What is the name of this control?
2. Does something similar exist for wxWidgets?

Do you have a screenshot? I've never used the VS GUI builder and thus I don't know what you're talking about
"Keyboard not detected. Press F1 to continue"

Maybe you mean vertical bar of "buttons"? In my VS I can see two "buttons" - "Dialog Editor" and "General". When I click "Dialog Editor" I can see all available controls. I suspect it is Tree View control or wxTreeCtrl in wxWidgets.

I think he means something like this:
http://wxcode.sourceforge.net/components/shortcutpanel/
or this:

AFAIK there is no control like that currently in wxWidgets.
Use the source, Luke!

Yes, the elements of course are arranged vertical, not horizontal!

I'll have a look at the foldbar but it is slightly different to what I mean.

Just for my interest: what is the correct name of such kind of control?
