Taking Text from List and Adding Data part of command line

Recommended Posts


So i have spent the past hour or so looking at threads and can't really seem to understand. I want to be able to select a window size from left list and then from that selection.

I tried using GuiCtrlRead($list1) but that doesnt seem to do it. If I were to choose 480, instead of running the program with @ comes back with "GuiCtrlRead($list1)".

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <GUIListBox.au3>

#include <StaticConstants.au3>

#include <Process.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)

$Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 359, 187, 229, 546)

Global $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("South Windsor V: Map", 16, 32, 161, 57, $WS_GROUP)

Global $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cromwell V: Map", 184, 32, 161, 57)

$List1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 22, 120, 81, 58)

GUICtrlSetData(-1, "|480|640|768")

Global $Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Launch", 112, 120, 225, 57)

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 400, 0, "Times New Roman")

$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Select Window Size and click Launch to start Visual", 24, 96, 297, 19)

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 400, 0, "Arial Black")

$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Click on Button to change Drive mapping of V:\", 40, 8, 284, 19)

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 400, 0, "Arial Black")

Take this line: Global $gui2 = Run("v:vm.exe -w GuiCtrlRead($list1)",) and change it to this Global $gui2 = Run("v:vm.exe -w " & GuiCtrlRead($list1)) and see if that works for you.

ah dang, that worked. haha. Thank you so much. I was litterly looking at the threads for so long trying to figure it out. I think i got pretty close haha.

Could you also point me to resource on the GuiCtrlRead? I want to do a little more. Like for example a list that says "full screen, windowed, minized" so example of out put would be like "v:VM.exe -w 650 -s full"

So what I tried to do is make another list and type up

Global $gui2 = Run("v:vm.exe -w " & GuiCtrlRead($list1) & GuiCtrlRead($list2))

EDIT: I figured it out :-D so happy hehe. I also figured out I need to add a space in the for the -s part or else it would combine with the previous text.

Global $gui2 = Run("v:vm.exe -w " & GuiCtrlRead($list1) & " -s" & GuiCtrlRead($list2))
