$WM_COMMAND and multiple comboboxes

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to use $WM_command to do some creative Auto_complete in a combobox, This works when i Force

$hWndCombo = GUICtrlGetHandle($input[$x][62])

where $input[$x][62] is the handle of the combo.

What I would like is to reuse this code, for multple combo boxes, I can get windows id of the other windows using GUIGetCursorInfo, but not any of the combo boxes, they are always returned as 0.

So How can get the ID of a the Combobox that my cursor is at?

hazed,

_WinAPI_GetFocus returns the control that currently has keyboard input - sounds like just the job. :oops:

consolewrite(_WinAPI_GetFocus()&@tab& GUICtrlGetHandle($input[$x][62])& @tab&$ilParam&@lf)

returns when I'm sitting on the control.

0x0012106E 0x00120ACE 0x00120ACE - which to me means that I ilParam = GUICtrlGetHandle($input[$x][62]) and not _WinAPI_GetFocus().

This isn't helping much. to put things into perpective. $input[$x][62] is the handle of the combo in tab($x) which tab is created only if needed and it's an exact duplicate of the previous Tab. (sort of like do you have more, here is page 2,3,4,5...etc)

I guess when I create the comboboxes, I can create an array which maps the what the GUICtrlGetHandle() of each comboboxes in each tab when I create the tab. And then do an arraysearch or something similar to find which combobox I'm dealing with and use different WM_edit_changed() based upon the index.

So

comboarray[$x][1] = GUICtrlGetHandle($input[$x][60])

comboarray[$x][2] = GUICtrlGetHandle($input[$x][62])

comboarray[$x][3] = GUICtrlGetHandle($input[$x][72]).

Since I know the $X,

for $i=1 to 3

if comboarray[$x][$i] = ilparam then exitloop

next

....

Switch $iCode

Case $CBN_CLOSEUP

Case $CBN_KILLFOCUS

WM_validate()

Case $CBN_EDITCHANGE

switch $i

case 1

WM_edit_changed_combo1()

case 2

WM_edit_changed_combo2()

case 3

WM_edit_changed_combo3()

endswitch

EndSwitch

or something like that.... wish I could find a better way.

hazed,

This code distinguishes between the 2 combos using their ControlIDs - why are you looking for handles? :oops:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>

Dim $sString = "Hello|world|AutoIt|rules|and|more|some|data"

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

$cCombo_1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sString, "Hello")

$cCombo_2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 100, 200, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sString, "Hello")

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "WM_COMMAND")

GUISetState()

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Func WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    Local $iIDFrom = BitAND($wParam, 0x0000FFFF)
    Local $iCode = BitShift($wParam, 16)

    Switch $iCode
        Case $CBN_EDITCHANGE
            Switch $iIDFrom
                Case $cCombo_1
                    _GUICtrlComboBox_AutoComplete($cCombo_1)
                Case $cCombo_2
                    _GUICtrlComboBox_AutoComplete($cCombo_2)
            EndSwitch
    EndSwitch

    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc   ;==>WM_COMMAND

If you are still having difficulty identifying your combos, please post some code which shows the problem - then we can get a better idea of what is happening. :bye:

      Good morning
      I'm working on a little project, and I was wondering if there's a way ( sure there is ) to insert data to a ComboBox control everytime the user insert some text in the ComboBox which is not in the ComboBox data. I'll try to explain with an example:
      - Form with some data ( ComboBox is empty );
      - User prompt something in the ComboBox: if what the user prompts is not in the ComboBox values ( at the moment empty ), then insert the value in the ComboBox values, in order to have, next time the user prompts the form, the value that he entered.
      More pratical example:
      - First call of the form, ComboBox empty;
      - I prompt "A" in the ComboBox;
      - Second call, in the ComboBox I should see "A";
      - I prompt "B" in the ComboBox;
      - Third call, I should see "A"
                                                 "B";
      - And so on...
      Everytime the form is called, I re-create it, so I think I can't use _GUICtrlComboBox_AddStrings().
      I tried with
      Global $strCboStrings = "" ; When the user prompt the form, the code below is executed. ; I.E. : User prompt "A", after the if I should have "A"; ; In the second call, If I write "B", I should see "A" ; "B"; ; If I write "A" again, in the combobox values should not be any changes. If Not StringInStr($strCboStrings, GUICtrlRead($cboVoiceCategory)) <> 0 Then $strCboStrings &= $strCboStrings & "|" & GUICtrlRead($cboVoiceCategory) EndIf Any suggestion?
      Thanks

      Good evening guys
      I am working on a little project, in which I have to retrieve 8000+ rows of data from a table, from a SQLite database, to populate a combobox 
      This is what I tried 'til now, but it still takes about 12 seconds to populate the combobox.
      _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "BEGIN TRANSACTION;") If _SQLite_GetTable($objDatabase, "SELECT DISTINCT Comune FROM LISTA_COMUNI;", $arrRisultatoQuery, $intRighe, $intColonne) = $SQLITE_OK Then For $i = 2 To UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 If $i < UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 Then GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i] & "|") Else GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i]) EndIf Next _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "COMMIT;") Are there any other solution to retrieve 8000+ records from a SQLite database?
      Thank you very much

      Hi huys !
       how are you ? family ? dog, cat ? well..
       
      I've got a problem: _GUICtrlComboBox_GetCueBanner
      i can't get it to work.
      Simple: even the example from help does'nt work...
       
      I insist, it's excactly the example from the help, no modifications
      #include <GuiComboBox.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $g_idMemo Example() Func Example() Local $idCombo ; Create GUI GUICreate("ComboBox Get Count", 400, 296) $idCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 2, 2, 396, 296) _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($idCombo, "Select an Item") $g_idMemo = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 50, 376, 234, $WS_VSCROLL) GUICtrlSetFont($g_idMemo, 9, 400, 0, "Courier New") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Add files _GUICtrlComboBox_BeginUpdate($idCombo) _GUICtrlComboBox_AddDir($idCombo, @WindowsDir & "\*.exe") _GUICtrlComboBox_EndUpdate($idCombo) MemoWrite("Cue Banner: " & _GUICtrlComboBox_GetCueBanner($idCombo)) ; Loop until the user exits. Do Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete() EndFunc ;==>Example ; Write a line to the memo control Func MemoWrite($sMessage) GUICtrlSetData($g_idMemo, $sMessage & @CRLF, 1) EndFunc ;==>MemoWrite I also added the display of the cuebanner in the loop.
      It never display what actually appears in the combo
      If you can show me any king of working example.

      Hello,
      I have searched everywhere but on the forum there isn't an example of a combobox with checkbox. I think is a very useful control but require subclassing. Several example in C++, one of this:
      CheckComboBox Control
      If somone has some time to check it out. If need i can provide the source code. Thanks
