    Good evening,

    This is a really newbie question.... But how can I popup a spinner to retrieve info?
    As for now, I can only include it in the main view - that's not my pourpose :(
    Kind regards,

    Kepler

    that´s the way the spinner works and is designed in android. When you "open" the spinner then the items will be shown in a POPUP.

    Hi,

    I thought so... What about InputList? My core lib doesn't have it. Do you know where I can find the latest version for download?

    Kind regards,

    InputList is part of the B4A distribution, no need to download anything.

    Sorry... I've read it was in the Core lib.
    I don't have any option to use InputList in B4A. My Core lib is version 3.80. It seems that the InputList is in a newer version :(

    It is not a library or a view, you have to type it in the IDE, like THIS

    That is because you are doing it wrong, look at the syntax on the example I posted.

    I'm sorry...I've done as you typed, and still nothing... :(

    I've only mentioned Core library because of this link.

    It's version 4.01 - that one has that function. She's a base in B4A.
    Mine doesn't...

    Yes, I am....

    In my IDE the choice doesn't appear automatically. Only after I type InputList the reference appears... :(

    Why isn't it automatic?... I am doing some terribly wrong.

    Sorry guys...

    Dude, you have to type it, I even said that on my reply above.

    In the IDE code editor do:
    - Ctrl+Space
    - Start typing 'in'
