ControlCommand FindString returns 0 for first item, and 0 for item not found?

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am trying to select items in a checkbox list like the one displayed here:

Using ControlCommand SelectString does not work, but I got around this by:

1) Firstly using ControlCommand FindString to find the index of the item

2) Then using ControlClick and clicking on the checkbox, by calculating the x,y coords of the checkbox using the index of the item (limitation: Can't scroll down the list)

However, there is a problem... when using ControlCommand FindString to find the index of the item, it starts from 0 for the first item - but 0 is also returned if the item can't be found!

Which means I'm unable to tell if the item actually exists as I want to display an error to the user if the item they're wanting to select doesn't exist.

Does anyone know of a way around this? Thanks :x

Will any of the _GUICtrlListBox functions work with this control?

Yes, _GUICtrlListBox_FindString worked!! It returns -1 if it can't find the item, and 0 for the first item. Perfect, thank you Varian! :x
