I've no idea about how to fill the drop list, and how to add a checkbox inside the arrayctrl. For the rest I can try. I'll do it tomorrow afternoon and post here the code. For the moment I guess I must define a callback for the button "Add" that do the job.

Thanks a lot,
Luigi


DropList dl;
ArrayCtrl ar;

....

dl.Add(1, "First item");
dl.Add("Second", "Second item");

ar.AddColumn("Check").Ctrls<Option>();

Thank you Mirek,

I've not resisted to the temptetion to write the code before to go to sleep... even because I was afraid that Fudadmin (by the way... which is your human name?) could anticipate me once more Smile . With my surprise I was able to perform everything in not more than 10 minutes! (two day ago I wont bet a cent). Here is the new class Tab1 code with Add and Clear button activated:

class Tab1 : public WithTab1Layout<TopWindow> {
public:

	typedef Tab1 CLASSNAME;

	Tab1();
	void AddPlayer(); //callback from Add_Player button
	void MaskDefaultValue(); //callback from Clera button
};

Tab1::Tab1()
{
	CtrlLayout(*this, "");
    arr.AddColumn("Name");
    arr.AddColumn("Fed");
    arr.AddColumn("Birthday");
    arr.AddColumn("Gender");
    arr.AddColumn("Title");
    arr.AddColumn("ID FIDE");
    arr.AddColumn("Rat FIDE");
    arr.AddColumn("ID Nat");
    arr.AddColumn("Rat Nat");
    arr.AddColumn("K");
    arr.AddColumn("Available").Ctrls<Option>();
    // how to set ON the checkbox?

    //drop list widget
    editTitle.Add(1, "First");
    editTitle.Add(2, "Second");
    editTitle.Add(3, "Third");

    //set the callback for the Add_Player button
    btnAdd <<= THISBACK(AddPlayer);
    btnClear <<= THISBACK(MaskDefaultValue);
    
    //fill with default value
    MaskDefaultValue();
}

void Tab1::AddPlayer() // body of the callback 
{
    if ( (~editName) == Null) {
       PromptOK("The Name field cannot be empty!");
       return;
    }
	arr.Add(~editName, ~editCountry, ~editBirth,  ~tsex, ~editTitle,
	        ~editFIDEId, ~editFIDERat, ~editNatId, ~editNatRat, ~kcoeff);
	arr.GoEnd();
//	editName <<= editCountry <<= editBirth <<= tsex <<= editTitle <<= editFIDEId <<=
//	        editFIDERat <<= editNatId <<= editNatRat <<=kcoeff <<= Null;
	ActiveFocus(editName);
	MaskDefaultValue();
}

void Tab1::MaskDefaultValue() // body of the callback
{
	editName <<= Null;
	editCountry <<= "--";
	editBirth <<= "00.00.00";
	tsex <<= 1;
	editTitle <<= "GM";
	editFIDEId <<= editFIDERat <<= editNatId <<= editNatRat <<= 0;
	kcoeff <<= 30;
	ActiveFocus(editName);
}


Now arise some questions that regards the details (the details make the difference as everybody knows):

1. I desire my user do not enter more than 25 character in the editName widget. It is not enough that a pink colour appear. I desire that the widget refuse to write any character further the 25th. Is there such limitation?

2. I desire that the lenght of the arrayCtrl in corrispondence, for example, of field Name be 25 character long. The user can tune it manually but I prefer to set it initially to some lenght. How to do it?

3. The check box appear in the array but it is not set to ON (checked) but it is unchecked. How to set it to ON?

4. I desire that the even numbered line of the array be colored, say light blue (I love this feature. By the way, in the past this feature attracted my attention toward Ultimate++)

Now I can go to sleep very Very Happy . Today was a great day!
The next step is to click on the array, retrieve the data of the row, and sent them in the above mask for some modification.

Good night,
Luigi

The simpliest solution is this:
	arr.Add(~editName, ~editCountry, ~editBirth,  ~tsex, ~editTitle,
		~editFIDEId, ~editFIDERat, ~editNatId, ~editNatRat, ~kcoeff, 1);
//1 - for option

After some investigation myself at two questions:

2. coloumn dimension

    // set the widths of each coloumn
    arr.ColumnWidths("25 3 5 12 8 8 2 3 3 3 3");


4. colored row
   // color even rows
    arr.EvenRowColor();


Any suggestion for question 1. and 3.?

Very nice solution! (The simplest is always the better)
Now remain 1 more question Smile

Regarding 3. option...
...or 3.1 add to your *.lay
	ITEM(Label, dv___1, SetLabel(t_("Avail?")).SetAlign(ALIGN_CENTER).LeftPosZ(652, 32).TopPosZ(32, 19))
	ITEM(Option, optAvail, LeftPosZ(660, 16).TopPosZ(56, 19))


3.2 initialize
	arr.AddColumn("Available").Ctrls<Option>();
	// how to set ON the checkbox?
	optAvail.Set(1);


3.3 don't forget to add to the array:
arr.Add(~editName, ~editCountry, ~editBirth,  ~tsex, ~editTitle,
		~editFIDEId, ~editFIDERat, ~editNatId, ~editNatRat, ~kcoeff, ~optAvail);

Regarding column widths- I would prefer to see what width is set for which column:
	arr.AddColumn("Name",10);
	arr.AddColumn("Fed",3);
	arr.AddColumn("Birthday",4);
	arr.AddColumn("Gender",4);
	arr.AddColumn("Title",4);
	arr.AddColumn("ID FIDE",4);
	arr.AddColumn("Rat FIDE",4);
	arr.AddColumn("ID Nat",4);
	arr.AddColumn("Rat Nat",4);
	arr.AddColumn("K",3);
	arr.AddColumn("Available",3).Ctrls<Option>();

or even calculated from edit field layouts or from column text lengths or something combined...

		~editFIDEId, ~editFIDERat, ~editNatId, ~editNatRat, ~kcoeff, 1);
//1 - for option


BTW, you can use "true" for clarity.. (bool is Value compatible, and inside Value, int64, int, double and bool are all inter-convertible).

BTW, there is a cheap and dirty but usefult trick how to speedup setting those widths - run your app in debug mode, adjust your columns (in your app!) and then click on those columns (HeaderCtrl) while holding "Ctrl" key. Your computer should beep and place above code to clipboard Wink (Paste it to your application code).
