Update label when combobox entry selected from ini file

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

So ive got a combo box that reads from an ini:

Global $ini_save_file = @ScriptDir & "\config.ini"
Global $Combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 75, 15, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
_ReadComboOptions_FromINI()

and ive got a label:

$Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("label text here", 16, 18, 50, 17)

and the ini file looks like this:

Combo_value1=1
Combo_value2=2
Combo_value3=3
Combo_value4=4
Combo_value5=5
Combo_value6=6
Combo_value7=7
Combo_value7=7a
Combo_value7=7b

Label_value1=Text1
Label_value2=Text2
Label_value3=Text3
Label_value4=Text4
Label_value5=Text5
Label_value6=Text6
Label_value7=Text7
Label_value7=Text7a
Label_value7=text7b

So what I want to happen is when I select a value in the combo box, is sets the label to the equivalant label value; EG: Combobox I select '1' and it would then automatically set Label to 'Text1' which its pulled from the ini file.

Anyone got any idea how I would do this, spent several hours trying to figure it out but got nowhere at all

quinnj09,

I have rewritten your ini file to ease the problem - note that the "keys" of the Label section must match the "values" of the Combo section:

[Combo]
1=1
2=2
3=3
4=4
5=5
6=6
7=7
8=7a
9=7b

[Label]
1=Text1
2=Text2
3=Text3
4=Text4
5=Text5
6=Text6
7=Text7
7a=Text7a
7b=text7b

Then this script works for me:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>

Global $ini_save_file = @ScriptDir & "\config.ini"
Global $aLabel_Options = IniReadSection($ini_save_file, "Label")

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 75, 15, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
_ReadComboOptions_FromINI()
$cLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 75, 200, 145, 25)
GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cCombo
            $sCombo_Sel = GUICtrlRead($cCombo)
            $sLabel_Text = IniRead($ini_save_file, "Label", $sCombo_Sel, "Error")
            GUICtrlSetData($cLabel, $sLabel_Text)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _ReadComboOptions_FromINI()
    $aIniRead = IniReadSection($ini_save_file, "Combo")
    If Not @Error Then
        $sCombo_List = ""
        For $i = 1 To $aIniRead[0][0]
            $sCombo_List &= "|" & $aIniRead[$i][1]
        Next
        GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, $sCombo_List)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Please ask if you have any questions. :)
