Letters Writing as Numbers? (GUICtrlRead/IniWrite)

Recommended Posts

J0rdan

Hey guys,

Wasn't sure whether this would be a GUI or a general problem, so I chose to post it here.

I'm new to AutoIt (kind of), and can't figure this out - though I fear the answer will be embarrassingly simple.

For some reason, where Internet Explorer (or whatever) is meant to be written to the .ini, a number is.

I've tried changing the font (learning that the actual display doesn't seem to affect anything), and removed file extentions and spaces (learning that file extentions and spaces don't affect anything either).

Can any of you spot what the problem is?

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Local $ReadCombo4
Local $ReadCombo5

#region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1_1 = GUICreate("Form1", 621, 219, 378, 248)
GUISetBkColor(0xFFFBF0)
$Combo4 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Please select your browser title", 426, 113, 177, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Mozilla Firefox|Internet Explorer|Google Chrome")
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "Calibri")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
$Combo5 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Please select your browser file", 426, 138, 177, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "firefox.exe|iexplore.exe|chrome.exe")
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "Calibri")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save", 262, 184, 97, 25, $WS_GROUP)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "Calibri")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x0066CC)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $nMsg[0]
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            $ReadCombo4 = GUICtrlRead($Combo4)
            IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", "Browser", "browser_title", $Combo4)
            $ReadCombo5 = GUICtrlRead($Combo5)
            IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", "Browser", "browser_file", $Combo5)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Sorry about the length of the code.

Thanks in advance,

Jordan.

You're writing the control _handles_ instead of the control _contents_ (that you just read, btw):

$ReadCombo4 = GUICtrlRead($Combo4)
    IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", "Browser", "browser_title", $Combo4)
    $ReadCombo5 = GUICtrlRead($Combo5)
    IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", "Browser", "browser_file", $Combo5)

make it:

    $ReadCombo4 = GUICtrlRead($Combo4)
    IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", "Browser", "browser_title", $ReadCombo4)
    $ReadCombo5 = GUICtrlRead($Combo5)
    IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", "Browser", "browser_file", $ReadCombo5)

It's late here.

I've just wasted a full hour with this.

I'm going to go lie down.

Thanks for the speedy reply and keen eye :mellow:
