maxscript control question

hi there

is this kind of control available through maxscript:

I mean a scrollable kind of listbox that holds interface items

Unfortunately, no, there is not...
You would have to build a custom treeview/listview control using activeX or DotNet
I would be more than interested if such control would exist, or if anyone could provide any hints.

Well subrollouts have their own titlebar...
which can use a lot of space if you have 10 rows...
But I admit it can be a workaround...

Have a look at what Kees has done with MorphX2 here: He is using a few things to fake the setup which is what I think is happening in the Max morpher anyway.

The Multi/Sub-Material dialog is actually just a couple of buttons and checkboxes, etc. with some and a floating scroll bar. It cunningly reallocates the buttons, etc. to different materials in the array based on the current scroll value, hiding any controls > the number of materials. As far as I know you can't create a scroll bar in ActiveX, but I'm quite sure that it would be possible in .NET.

I hope this clarifies things a little.
