Hover & click on the images for description


Sets the second (right aligned) picture in the item with the given index of the listbox or combobox with id idc of the topmost user dialog. Name is the picture name. The picture is searched for in the mission directory, the dtaExt subdirectory of the campaign directory and the dtaExt directory and the data bank (or directory).
In Arma 3 it might be necessary to set the color of the picture as well with lbSetPictureRightColor as default [0,0,0,0] color makes the picture invisible.
When trying to select a listBox entry by clicking at the right picture, the control in the background is focused. It seems the width of the control is not extended by adding a right picture.

Adding pictures to lists is very slow. In order to prevent the filling of the list to be slowed down, add the pictures in the scheduled environment. One drawback of that method is, that sorting the entries is not easily possible.
private _path = _ctrlTV tvAdd [[], "Some Entry"]; [_ctrlTV, _path] spawn { (_this select 0) tvSetPictureRight [[_this select 1], "someImage.paa"]; };
