[Glade-users] Re: Display only X lines in GtkComboBox

Several Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) recommend that if your comboboxes
are to display around more than 12 items then it's best to forget it and display
a table instead. Comboboxes with a lot of items are bad cause they may not
even fit on the screen. Use a table. Anyways, 5 rows at a time is not really
usable. If you can, allow the table to stretch when the user resizes the
window at the very least. Grrrr..... I hate GUIs that resemble peepholes.

    I'm using a GtkComboBox to display some strings (stored in a
GtkListStore). The number of strings can become large, but I'd like the
box to display only a small number of them at a time (something like 5),
instead of showing "as many as fits the screen". Is it possible to do
that? I didn't find any function for that in the documentation.

Not currently possible.
