What I am trying to do is to not only split the words from "$line" but to count each split as well. Hope you understand.

I have a combo-box with a list of words in it, and it also gets read. The list is pretty long so i thought I'd make an array to do it for me.

$id =  GUICtrlCreateCombo("example_A", 64, 8, 161, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "example_B|example_C"
$ITEM = GUICtrlRead($id)

The words from "$line" I am hoping to assign a number to those words without having to manually put them in.

$array = StringSplit($line, "|", 1)
$line = "example_A|example_B|example_C"
            for $i = 1 to $array[0]
                Switch $ITEM
                Case $array[$i]
                        $MAT = $array[0]
                EndSwitch
            Next

I don't understand this. The number of splits is counted automatically, and the total is assigned to the first element of the array (array index = 0). The rest of the strings are assigned to the following elements in the order that they appear in the original full string. The index number of each array element is a count of each substring split as it was created by the function StringSplit.

I understand this :

$array[1] is example_A

$array[2] is example_B

$array[3] is example_C

after the code below is executed.

$array = StringSplit($line, "|", 1)
$line = "example_A|example_B|example_C"

Id like to use the combo-box to select one of these words("example_B"). and when i click a button it reads what us selected in the combo-box and returns What number it was in the list. But i am not sure how to do this task. maybe it is simple but i am not seeing it. Can you please give an example piece of code doing exactly that ?

You might want to change the order of the statements.

You are splitting something BEFORE you're putting something inside.

Shouldn't be the other way??

$array = StringSplit($line, "|", 1)
$line = "example_A|example_B|example_C"
            for $i = 1 to $array[0]
                Switch $ITEM
                Case $array[$i]
                        $MAT = $array[0]
                EndSwitch
            Next

this code above.. it returns the value 258 which is the number of words in the $line on my pc. instead of bringing out the total amount i want it to say what number it is for where that word was...

example_B should give me the value 2

example_C should give me the value 3 etc.

Or maybe this.

local $line = "example_A|example_B|example_C"
local $array = StringSplit($line, "|", 1)
local $ITEM = "example_B"

For $i = 1 To $array[0]
    Switch $ITEM
        Case $array[$i]
            $MAT = $i
    EndSwitch
Next
MsgBox(0, "example_B", "index = " & $MAT)

#cs
; Instead of Switch...EndSwitch try:-
If $ITEM == $array[$i] Then $MAT = $i
#ce

Mmm. Who needs arrays! (working but somewhat unfinished as I got to go)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
main()
Func main()
    Local Const $DELIM = '|'
    Local $lWords = 'word1|word2|word3'
    ;; GuiSet
    Local $hGui = GUICreate('Gui')
    Local $iCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo('dummy', 10, 10)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, '|' & $lWords)
    GUISetState()
    _GuiWait($iCombo, $lWords, $DELIM)
    ;; cleanup
    GUIDelete($hGui)
EndFunc
Func _GuiWait($iCombo, $lWords, $DELIM)
    Local $iMsg, $sWord, $iID = 0
    While 1
        $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case Not $iMsg
            Case $iMsg < 0
                If $iMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
            Case $iMsg > 0
                $sWord = GUICtrlRead($iCombo)
                DebugOut('$sWord', $sWord) ;### Debug DebugOut.
                $iID = _GetId($sWord, $lWords, $DELIM)
                DebugOut('$iID', $iID) ;### Debug DebugOut.
        EndSelect
    WEnd
EndFunc
Func _GetId($sWord, $lWords, $DELIM)
    ;; prep for StringInString.
    $lWords = $DELIM & $lWords & $DELIM
    $sWord = $DELIM & $sWord & $DELIM
    Local $ipos = StringInStr($lWords, $sWord, 1)
    StringReplace(StringLeft($lWords, $ipos), $DELIM, $DELIM, 0, 1)
    Return @extended
EndFunc

Func DebugOut($1, $2 = '!NuLL!', $iErr = @error, $iExt = @extended, $iLine = @ScriptLineNumber)
    If Not ($2 == '!NuLL!') Then
        If $2 == '' Then $2 = '[EmptyString]'
        ConsoleWrite($iLine & ') ' & $1 & ' = ' & $2 & @CRLF)
    Else
        ConsoleWrite($iLine & ') ' & $1 & @CRLF)
    EndIf
    Return SetError($iErr, $iExt, 0)
EndFunc
OUTPUT:
45) $sWord = word1
47) $iID = 1
45) $sWord = word2
47) $iID = 2
45) $sWord = word3
47) $iID = 3

OMG dude you rock Malkey :) Thanks for all your help guys.

_GUICtrlComboBox_FindStringExact()

Not sure how you would use this line of code to give the value in the combo-box a number to it lol. Thanks any way.

this is part of my code :

$id =  GUICtrlCreateCombo("example_01", 64, 8, 161, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "example_02|example_03|example_04|example_05|example_A|example_B|example_C", "example_02")
$ITEM = GUICtrlRead($id)
Statements()


Func Statements() ;Finds the id that fits the material desciption
$line = "example_01|example_02|example_03|example_04|example_05|example_A|example_B|example_C"  
$array = StringSplit($line, "|", 1)
            for $i = 0 to $array[0]
              If $ITEM == $array[$i] Then $MAT = $i
              Next
EndFunc

And this works "Perfectly now thanks to Malkey ;)
