3 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I am a newbee with AutoIt.

How do I have to right a string from chosen with a combobox into a variable.

Thank you very much for you support.

Best regards

Please read some documentation first, it's pretty extensive. You can read all about the Combobox control here. It also includes information on how to read the data from it.

Buddha,

First, welcome to the AutoIt forums. :mellow:

When you post here it always helps if you have had a go at solving your problems beforehand. Having some code to work on is a great help - and no-one here is too keen to help the "code it for me" brigade.

Think of the old saying: "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; give a man a net and you feed him forever". We try to be net makers and repairers, not fishmongers.

Reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. You should also look at the excellent tutorials that you will find here and here. There are even video tutorials on YouTube if you prefer watching to reading.

I know you want to start coding NOW, but a little study will save you a lot of trouble later on, believe me. :(

However, as a special treat, here is how you read a combo:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Item 1", 10, 10, 100, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Item 2|Item 3")

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read", 10, 50, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            MsgBox(0, "Combo", GUICtrlRead($hCombo))
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Now go and read the Help file and try those tutorials! :lol:
