Retreiveing data from non autoit combobox?

4 posts in this topic

Hello!

I have been searching the forum for this answer, and while it has some info on the subject, it is not quite enough to make it clear to me.

Question is this.

How do I get a list of all the options that are in a combobox created by another program? I do not know what lanuage the other program was written in...will that make a difference?

the language should not matter, what matters is that it is a standard windows combo box.


SciTE for AutoItDirections for Submitting Standard UDFs

 

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Welcome to the forums!

You will know if you're dealing with a standard Windows combo control if you successfully try to manipulate it using AutoIt.

I've never tried anything like this but the ControlCommand() function appears to have a lot of combo-related functionality to it. If that's not what you're after then perhaps ControlGetText() is. Have a read of these in the help file and let us know what you think.

Good luck!
