I have another question: both ColourDropDown and FontDropDown controls
are derived from a general DropDown class that does not have any sources

changed ?

I presume you have a source for your dialog in XRC. If so, I suggest
you just put a wxComboBox in for now which will send the appropriate
messages - that's what I did with the text tool stuff, Phil did
with a similar dropdown on the fill tool which wanted bitmaps etc.
These will send the correct kernel messages.

In other words change the base class from DropDown to wxComboBox and get rid of DropDown-specific calls ? That won't be easy and we will have to add them later in order to support the drawing...

The dropdowns are essentially combo boxes which are owner drawn.
I am looking to use wxODComboBox which the wx-dev folks are currently
thinking about putting in 2.7 (if so I shall port it into wxXtra
for compatibility).


Is there any way to create owner draw combobox right now or should we wait until 2.7 ?

BTW, thank you for you quick responses !
