how to read the selection of a ComboBox

Recommended Posts

Imbuter2000

Why in this code when I press the OK button it always display "0" instead of the selected number? I would it to display the selected number, what's the problem in my code?

(I'm a newbie)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)  ; Change to OnEvent mode
$mainwindow = GUICreate("Hello World", 200, 100)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CLOSEClicked")
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Hello world! How are you?", 30, 10)
$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 70, 50, 60)
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 19, 35, 49, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9", "0")
$selected_number = GUICtrlRead($Combo1, 1)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($okbutton, "go")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
  Sleep(1000)  ; Idle around
WEnd

Func go()
    msgbox(0,"",$selected_number)
EndFunc

Func CLOSEClicked()
  Exit
EndFunc

Imbuter2000,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :x

You are reading the combo as soon as it is created, so there is liitle wonder it returns "0". :P

Try reading it after you press the button:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)  ; Change to OnEvent mode
$mainwindow = GUICreate("Hello World", 200, 100)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CLOSEClicked")
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Hello world! How are you?", 30, 10)
$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 70, 50, 60)
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 19, 35, 49, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9", "0")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($okbutton, "go")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
  Sleep(1000)  ; Idle around
WEnd

Func go()
    $selected_number = GUICtrlRead($Combo1) ; No need for the advanced parameter - combos do not have any!
    msgbox(0,"",$selected_number)
EndFunc

Func CLOSEClicked()
  Exit
EndFunc

You were reading the ComboBox at the start which of course was the Default 0 and then not reading it again. Look for ; <<<<<<

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)  ; Change to OnEvent mode
$mainwindow = GUICreate("Hello World", 200, 100)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CLOSEClicked")
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Hello world! How are you?", 30, 10)
$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 70, 50, 60)
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 19, 35, 49, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9", "0")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($okbutton, "go")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
  Sleep(1000)  ; Idle around
WEnd

Func go()
    $selected_number = GUICtrlRead($Combo1) ; <<<<<<
    msgbox(0,"",$selected_number)
EndFunc

Func CLOSEClicked()
  Exit
EndFunc

Ah, here is the problem!

I shifted the read after the button press and now it works like I expected!

Thank you very much M23 and guinness!
