Problem with a GUI function

Recommended Posts

Kard0

I'm trying to make a box that displays all the characters you have made. The names can be changed so I'm trying to use variables but Autoit just doesn't want to work with me in that way.

Here is the combo window.

$Account = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Default", 88, 16, 113, 25)
GuiCtrlSetData(-1, $kasutaja | $kasutaja2)

Error that it creates

C:\Users\Kardo\Documents\Gemcounter.au3 (137) : ==> Unable to parse line.: 
GuiCtrlSetData(-1, $kasutaja | $kasutaja2) 
GuiCtrlSetData(-1, $kasutaja ^ ERROR
>Exit code: 1    Time: 0.208

Tutorial I followed to get this far.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $msg
    
    GUICreate("My GUI")  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10)

    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "item1|item2|item3", "item3")

    GUISetState()       ; will display an empty dialog box with a combo control with focus on

    ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        
        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I'm trying to make a small system where you can press "Create" to make another character and add the character name into the combo box list. I didn't manage to get so far since I ran into this mess. No clue how to bypass it for now.

Would be grateful for any tips how to finish it.

If you look at the original code:

GUICtrlSetData(-1, "item1|item2|item3", "item3")

notice how item1|item2|item3 is in quotes. This is known as a string. What you have however, are strings stored in variables separated by the | character.

Try instead something like $varA & "|" & $varB & "|" & $varC.

This will force all your variables to be separated by the | character INSIDE the string. (Think of the & character as something that joins several strings, called concatenation.)

Change this line
GuiCtrlSetData(-1, $kasutaja | $kasutaja2)

to this

GuiCtrlSetData(-1, $kasutaja & "|" & $kasutaja2)

You're trying to merge 2 variables and a character together without telling the script to merge them, that's what the "&" does.

Thank you both for the detailed explanations, I will try my best to fix it.

EDIT: Worked like a charm. Thank you.
