Reset combo to default data possible?

6 posts in this topic

If i have a couple of combo boxes like the ones below, is there a way to restore the default data in the combo if i click the other combo, or do i need to delete the combo and make a new one exactly like it?

Or... is it possible to simply update the combo data when i click the other combo?

GUICtrlCreateCombo("Name", 232, 232, 153, 25)
GUICtrlCreateCombo("Number", 232, 280, 153, 25)

I've tried that before, and tried again like this:

$Name = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Name", 232, 232, 153, 25)
$Number = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Number", 232, 280, 153, 25)
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Name
          GUICtrlSetData($Number, "Number", "Number")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Doesn't work. Maybe i'm doing it wrong, but all the strings displayed in the combo boxes remain the same. I have to do this to make it work:

_GUICtrlComboBox_Destroy($Number)
$NumeroLaudoGrupoAbrir = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Number", 232, 280, 153, 25)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_ENABLE)

But it's not a very clean way to do it.

$sData = "|Number|Alpha|string|pear|orange";;  NOTE the leading pipe.  It will clear the previous contents if any.
$Number = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 232, 280, 153, 25)
GUICtrlSetData($number, $sData, "Number")

In the Switch statement do this

Case $Name
          GUICtrlSetData($Number, $sData, "orange")
