Read Combobox on change

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Ok I have a combobox that is populated by values in an Ini file. I have the drop show all the values that I want. What I want to do is when it is changed to another value to do something else.

I know you can probably do Guictrlread but I don't want it constantly reading that ctrl the whole time the app is open. Is there any other way to do this that is efficient?

TIA

To clarify, I don't want a button to excute the option. I want it done when I select the option.

EndFuncAutoIt is the shiznit. I love it.

All you need to do is to respond to the event. If you are not using OnEvent mode then in your message loop have something like

$msg = GuiGetMsg()
 Switch $msg
 Case $GUI_EVENT_EXIT
    exit
 Case $Combo1
 ;the selection has been set
 ; do something, but it might not have been changed
EndSwitch

If in OnEvent mode just GuiCtrlRegister($combo1,"combosetfunc")

EDIT:typo

Sweet, I learn something everyday. I didn't like the constant polling and didn't realize OnEvent was available. I will look at that. Thanks

I dont see a command GuiCtrlRegister. Were you talking about GUICtrlSetOnEvent?

Yes, I meant GuiCtrlSetOnEvent. I have a faulty thought to word translator :)
