how to GUICtrlCreateCombo with predefined data the user can't change

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I created a Gui with a few Combo boxes, and then populated them with data.

How do I stop the user from changing this data and only able to select from I options provided by me?

Gerry,

Use the $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style ("Displays a static text field that displays the current selection in the list box"): :graduated:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "1|2|3|4|5", "3")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Not the most intuitive description, but it is what MSDN gives us! ;)

Hi

Thanks for your response, it worked. I had the following line:

$Combo2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 147, 47, 100, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))

which I then with a quick glance converted to :

$ComboPrnType2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 147, 47, 100, 25, $CBS_DROPDOWN)

I then tested it and of course it did not work and I was ready to shout! :)

After carefully rechecking your response noted your said

$CBS_DROPDOWNLIST and not $CBS_DROPDOWN

LOL, thanks for your help, I appreciate it. ;)

May the Springboks win the Rugby World Cup! :graduated:

Gerry,

You will probably still need to use BitOR - the Setting Styles tutorial in the Wiki explains why. :graduated:
