Having trouble with GUICtrlRead($ctrl) from second window.

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I have a form with buttons, one opens another form with a list and a button. I want the button on the 2nd form to read the selected item from the list and act. when i click the button I get GUICtrlRead(^ ERROR ==> Variable used without being declared.

the ariables are all declared properly and everything but... still no luck. If i run it from the first window all is fine.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <GUIListBox.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
$RepoManager = GUICtrlCreateButton("RepoManager", 0, 100, 117, 20)
$RepoManager = GUICtrlCreateButton("RepoManager", 0, 100, 117, 20)
Func RepoManager()
$RepoManagerWin = GUICreate("Repository Manager",125,255,-1,-1,$WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)
$CopyRepo = GUICtrlCreateButton("Copy",0,0,59,20)
$SelServer = GUICtrlCreateList("",0, 40,120,163)
GUICtrlSetData($SelServer, "R820")
GUICtrlSetData($SelServer, "R720")
Func CopyRepo()
   $repo = GUICtrlRead($SelServer) ;<============= ERROR is when reading this.
    msgbox(0,"Test", $repo)

This is as cut down as I can get it, any help is welcome.

$SelServer is not properly declared since it is only declared in RepoManager() as a local variable.

You need to define them as Global variables preferably at the start of your script.
