Reading from an office combobox?

Recommended Posts

I think GUICtrlRead() only works with GUI created by AutoIt.

Bottom line is i need to get that combo box to read a variable i have in the script and i'm only getting 0 when using GUICtrlRead ( 4480 )


Try this UDF:

; Description:          _GUICtrlComboGetCurSel
; Parameter(s):     $h_combobox - controlID
; Requirement:          None
; Return Value(s):  The return value is the zero-based index of the currently selected item.
;                           If no item is selected, it is $CB_ERR
; User CallTip:     _GUICtrlComboGetCurSel($h_combobox) Retrieve the index of the currently selected item, if any, in the list box of a combo box (required: <GuiCombo.au3>)
; Author(s):            Gary Frost (custompcs@charter.net)
; Note(s):              :

You need to get the udf update here and do #Include <GUICombo.au3> to use it.

Here ya go.

You'll still need beta if you want the text from the selected item.

Global Const $CB_ERR = -1
Global Const $CB_GETCURSEL = 0x147
Global Const $CB_GETLBTEXT = 0x148
Global Const $CB_GETLBTEXTLEN = 0x149

$hcombobox = ControlGetHandle("Options","","ComboBox4")

$ret = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hwnd",$hcombobox, "int", $CB_GETCURSEL, "int", 0, "int", 0)
$s_text = ""
_ComboGetLBText($hcombobox, $ret[0], $s_text)

Func _ComboGetLBText($hcombobox, $i_index, ByRef $s_text)
    Local $ret = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hwnd",$hcombobox, "int", $CB_GETLBTEXTLEN, "int", $i_index, "int", 0)
   Local $i, $len
    $len = $ret[0]
   $s_text = ""
   Local $p
   $p = DllStructCreate ("char[" & $len + 1 & "]")
   $ret = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hwnd", $hcombobox, "int", $CB_GETLBTEXT, "int", $i_index, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr ($p))
   If ($ret[0] == $CB_ERR) Then
      DllStructDelete ($p)
      Return $CB_ERR
   $s_text = DllStructGetData ($p, 1)
   DllStructDelete ($p)
   Return $ret[0]
EndFunc  ;==>_ComboGetLBText

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
