RE: [DotGNU]Winforms combobox

Oh oops, well I didn't mean to bring all that stuff up, the idea just
popped into my head, it didn't come from anyone, just my own idea so I
apologize for any trouble it may cause.

The CVS problem I'm puzzled then if its not happening to anyone else..
I deleted my pnetlib dir, and got fresh from CVS and it doesn't work.  I
try and ilrun FormsHello.exe and I get that error.  Maybe I should
update pnet as well.  This is without any of my code as well, just fresh

On another note, here's progress on the ComboBox.
here's screenshots of our ComboBox so far compared to .NET's testing on

I do have one question for the drop down of the combobox.  Is that a new
window of some sort, or is that just the ComboBox itself extending and
displaying a list?  It seems to appear above any controls underneath it.
If its just the control extending that's no problem at all and I'll
implement ASAP.  If it's a window I'm not really sure where to go with

Any help would be much appreciated.

Actually, my reply wasn't really aimed at you, but mdupont, before he
say "Great idea!  I want to work on this and then extend it to do these
things and then ...".  Mdupont will no doubt now engage in a 3 week
flame war 
with me over auto-stubbing.

It is highly dangerous to raise such ideas on the open mailing list
because of 
mdupont's basic inability to accept that just because he _wants_ to do a

thing doesn't mean he should be _allowed_ to.  I really wish he would
leave DotGNU and go away, but he won't take a hint. :-(

We do actually have some auto-stubbing tools: il2doc and csdoc2stub, but
I try 
not to publicise them too much because they will be abused by the likes
mdupont to do things that may get us in legal hot water.

I wasn't able to reproduce the CVS problem that you reported, sorry.
