[Solved] How Do I Get the MenuItem's Text from @GUI_CTRLID?

Recommended Posts



After showing a ContextMenu, and after I click a MenuItem in the ContetMenu,

I get a @GUI_CTRLID returned...

How would I get the MenuItem's Text?

Thank you

Like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

GUICreate("My GUI Context Menu", 300, 200)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")

Local $contextmenu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu()

Local $newsubmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("New", $contextmenu)
GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Text", $newsubmenu)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Menu")

GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Open", $contextmenu)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Menu")
GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Save", $contextmenu)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Menu")
GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("", $contextmenu) ; separator
GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Info", $contextmenu)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Menu")


; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1

Func _Exit()

Func _Menu()
    MsgBox(0, "Menu", GUICtrlRead(@GUI_CTRLID, 1)) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
