ItemListBox vs ListBox

Postby khayyam » Wed Mar 21, 2007 08:31

Hi all,

I don't see the differences between the ItemListBox and the ListBox
I need a widget able to list strings in order to select them by clicking, which one will fit the best ?

Listbox will do just fine. ItemListbox is basically for custom items.

Could you give me some examples about
"custom items"?

And another question,
what's different between ListboxItem
with ItemListbox and Listbox?

For simply displaying text you can use Listbox and ListboxTextItem. Have a look at WidgetGalore for an example.

ItemListbox is more complex but more powerful. Have a look at Create_a_CheckListboxItem for a tutorial on how to create custom listbox items. Another (almost identical) example can be found within Property Finder; one of the minor differences is that I created a register() function.
