Angry GTK+ style combo box


GTK-style combo boxes open up a menu-like list with buttons that slowly move up and down when you hover over them. I totally hate them, they're so clumsy to use, especially where there is a lot of items.

The Qt-style combo boxes with the scrollbar on the side are much nicer.

QtCurve has the option of making Qt have GTK-like combo boxes, but not the option of having GTK use Qt-style combo boxes.

MTK,

I was going to ask earlier but thought better of it. But now since you're obviously still wondering, I must ask, exactly what is it you're wanting to know here? What's the question?
