You need to know the index of the current selection of a combo box using AutoIt via the COM interface in Python.
Python 2.7 or greater.
PyWin32 (If you just have the ActiveState version of Python installed this will be done automatically)
AutoIt 3.3 or greater.
from win32com.client import Dispatch from win32api import SendMessage from win32con import CB_GETCURSEL
The first import is for actually loading the COM class of AutoIt.
The second import is a Win32 function for sending messages to controls.
The third import is a constant that represents the message type you want to send.
#init strWindowTitle = 'TESTAPP' strComboBoxID = '[CLASS:ComboBox; INSTANCE:1]' #COM handle for AutoIt comAutoIt = Dispatch("AutoItX3.Control") #Get handle on combobox control. #We get a string representation of hex that needs to be converted to int. hdlComboBox = int(comAutoIt.ControlGetHandle(strWindowTitle, '', strComboBoxID), 16) #Get the current index of the combobox. (Index is 0 based) intIndex = SendMessage(hdlComboBox, CB_GETCURSEL, 0, 0)
Hope that was helpful!
