AutoIT Newbie Help Please :(


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have a really dumb question, I am just trying to learn AutoIT so please don't slam your heads on your desks, lol.

Okay. Basically, I've created a ComboBox and a Button on my GUI in Koda.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Test", 148, 97, 192, 114)
GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 0, 16, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "TestItem1|TestItem2")
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 32, 48, 83, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

Very basic, I am going to add more after I figure it out more.

What I am trying to do is when the Button is pressed, I want it to check the ComboBox and do something differently depending on what item is in the ComboBox at the time.

I tried some stuff such as

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
  Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   Exit
  Case $Button1
     If $Form1 = "TestItem1" Then
      ControlSetText ( "MH]", "","[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.2bf8098_r13_ad1; INSTANCE:2]", "test"  )
   EndIf
EndSwitch
WEnd

Let me add that the ControlSetText does work when the button is pressed if I do not include an If statement, so I know I am doing something wrong. Please help me :).

Basically... when a button is pressed, if a particular item is selected in the combobox I want it to perform a particular action (ControlSetText).

Signed, AutoIT Noob.

$Form1 is the handle of the overall GUI, not what contains the selected item in the combo box.

You should use

$combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 0, 16, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData($combo1, "TestItem1|TestItem2")

Then

Case $Button1
     If GUICtrlRead($combo1) = "TestItem1" Then
      ControlSetText ( "MH]", "","[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.2bf8098_r13_ad1; INSTANCE:2]", "test"  )
   EndIf

For several items in combobox you better learn to use switch, it looks much better and is better organized

While 1
        $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit
            Case $Button1
                Switch GUICtrlRead($combo1)
                    Case "TestItem1"
                        ControlSetText("MH]", "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.2bf8098_r13_ad1; INSTANCE:2]", "test")
                    Case "TestItem2"
                        ControlSetText("MH]", "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.2bf8098_r13_ad1; INSTANCE:2]", "test2")
                    Case "TestItem3"
                        ControlSetText("MH]", "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.2bf8098_r13_ad1; INSTANCE:2]", "test2")
                EndSwitch
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
