Exact Match

3 posts in this topic

is there any options like the WinTitleMatchMode for strings?

This example should give you an idea of what I mean:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <GuiListBox.au3>
Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)
Example()
Func Example()
Local $mylist, $Click, $msg, $Form1

$Form1 = GUICreate("My GUI list")
$mylist = GUICtrlCreateList("", 176, 32, 121, 97)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 200)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Example")
_GUICtrlListBox_InsertString ($mylist, "Example2", 0)
$Click = GUICtrlCreateButton("Click on 1", 64, 160, 175, 25)
GUISetState()
$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
  $msg = GUIGetMsg()
  Select
   Case $msg = $Click
    _GUICtrlListBox_SelectString($mylist, "Example")
  EndSelect
WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Hope someone can help me with this

Thanks

_GUICtrlListbox_SelectString isn't the function you should be using if you want an exact match to be found. I've modified your code below with a possible workaround for the issue you're asking about.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <GuiListBox.au3>
Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)
Example()
Func Example()
Local $mylist, $Click, $msg, $Form1

$Form1 = GUICreate("My GUI list")
$mylist = GUICtrlCreateList("", 176, 32, 121, 97)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 200)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Example")
_GUICtrlListBox_InsertString ($mylist, "Example2", 0)
$Click = GUICtrlCreateButton("Click on 1", 64, 160, 175, 25)
GUISetState()
$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
  $msg = GUIGetMsg()
  Select
   Case $msg = $Click
;~     _GUICtrlListBox_SelectString($mylist, "Example")
       _GUICtrlListBox_SetCurSel($mylist, _GUICtrlListBox_FindString($mylist, "Example", True))
  EndSelect
WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

The FindString function does allow you to use an exact match for the text to be found. The SetCurSel will move the focus to the location that the FindString function returns when it finds the exact match. Using these 2 functions together, you get the functionality of the SelectString, but you get to find the exact string you're looking for and not just a partial match.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
