GUICtrlCreateCombo - force selection of list

Recommended Posts

I'd like to create a Combo that forces a user to select one of the list items...would anyone know the style param needed to do that?

Currently, the standard options, allow a user to type in any value.

Thanks...here is the sample from autoit helpfile:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
Func Example()
Local $msg
GUICreate("My GUI combo") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUICtrlCreateCombo("item1", 10, 10) ; create first item
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "item2|item3", "item3") ; add other item snd set a new default
GUICtrlCreateCombo("item2", 10, 50) ; create first item
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "item2|item3", "item3") ; add other item snd set a new default
; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
EndFunc ;==>Example

You need the $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style for that - and I know the description in the Help file is pretty useless, but that is the offical MS definition. :)

Do not forget you will need to define all the other styles you need as well - see the Setting Styles tutorial in the Wiki to understand why. ;)
