Chapter 5. Gistbox

Table of Contents


The Gistbox is a edit able listbox. The Gistbox template is composed from a Rtl_gridwin, a listbox or Rtl_mlistbox, an entry and two buttons.

Other, similar controls are combobox , and the edit able listbox under AQUA®.

The Gistbox interactive pattern is more efficient than that known from the combobox. There are however situations, when the combobox is preferable to the Gistbox.

The visual emphasis should be on the list –data–, whereas a combobox often acts as a substitute for a menu —to select something from a list.
