That'll require a merge of TextBox controls and DropdownLists, but once the new type of control exists, it should be easy enough to add. Thanks for trying it!

You're filling up Fell with a lot of work, but strangely enough, it's probably less work than convincing those idiots at Microsoft that Win7 is a far better system then 10, although arguably not as tough as 10. Well, Maybe that's not a fair comparison. My 7 just has to put up with keyboard tapping while my 10 spends it day adding up frequent flyer miles and bouncing off walls.

Whatever happens in regards to Inform - my plea would be to remember to not exclude the other two major operating systems; it seems that so often, a project will start out as being "cross-platform", garnering a lot of support, only later to find itself shutting out everything except Windows (as an original kickstarter supporter for Oculus, their dropping support for Linux really ticked me off, as it was one of the main things that caused me to invest).

Now - I know this dialog is just a clone, and is likely (?) cross compatible and isn't specific to Windows - I'm just putting out a plea and reminder, that there are others out there who use other operating systems besides Windows (and QB64 always being cross-platform in this regard has been a breath of fresh air for so long).
