GUI drop-down list - Run script based on selection

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

In the application that I'm using, I have to login to a location and do a task.

There are 300 locations. I would like my .au3 script to create a drop-down list of these locations with a GUI. When I select the location, the script will then log into that location and complete the task.

I have a GUI prepared, but am not sure how to make it run the selection code based off of my selected location.

Essentially, it would work like this

1. Script opens application

2. GUI appears and asks me to select my location

3. I select location and the GUI runs a script to login to that location

4. The task is completed.

Step 2 is where I need assistance. My GUI looks like this right now...

Any advice? Thanks!

BTW, here is a sample of the code I have so far

#include <IE.au3>

;GUI opens with list of locations
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
; Here is the array
Global $aArray[5] = ["Dallas", "Houston", "Austin", "San Antonio", "Plano"]
; And here we get the elements into a list
$sList = ""
For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    $sList &= "|" & $aArray[$i]
Next
; Create a GUI
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 250, 200)
; Create the combo
$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
; And fill it
GUICtrlSetData($hCombo, $sList)
GUISetState()
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
;After selection is made, script will run
;Task is completed
_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Reports",0,1)
_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Run Report",0,1)

shutch00,

the script will then log into that location

Please read the Forum Rules regarding "log-in" scripts and do not ask for help on that part. In fact I would suggest in future not even posting code which mentions it. :)

As to how to read the combo - just wait for the selection to fire a message like this,

;GUI opens with list of locations
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
; Here is the array
Global $aArray[5] = ["Dallas", "Houston", "Austin", "San Antonio", "Plano"]
; And here we get the elements into a list
$sList = ""
For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    $sList &= "|" & $aArray[$i]
Next
; Create a GUI
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 250, 200)
; Create the combo
$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
; And fill it
GUICtrlSetData($hCombo, $sList)
GUISetState()
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hCombo
            $sLocation = GUICtrlRead($hCombo)
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
WEnd

; Now action the choice
MsgBox(0, "You chose:", $sLocation

All clear? ;)

Melba, thank you for sharing and for your help. Essentially, the script selects a link and runs script based on the link selected. "Logging in" was a bad word choice.

I have checked the forum rules and will keep this in mind for future posts. Thanks!
