How to create my own controls?

Hi guys. Sorry for my last thread. I was wrong. So, I need to create something like listbox. Maybe somebody has ready-made solution or nice guide about creating own controls?

Check out AceGUI.

AceGUI-3.0 can be used directly, but that is not its actual purpose. The purpose it serves is a backend to AceConfig-3.0, providing options like tick boxes, drop downs, edit boxes, and other widgets.

If you want to learn how to use Ace3 (not to be confused with ACE3, which has nothing to do with WoW), then have a read here https://www.wowace.com/projects/ace3...etting-started and here https://www.wowace.com/projects/ace3...options-tables

That said, while Ace3 does make things a little easier, the assumption is that a coder already knows something about Lua (not to be confused with LUA, which is not even a thing), in which case I suggest reading Gamepedia's Interface Customization section. https://wow.gamepedia.com/Wowpedia:I..._customization

Keep in mind that if this is still for version 5.4, you will not be able to get the help you want/need here.
