MsgBox returns 0

7 posts in this topic




Try this function, I got it from >this thread and modified it to just return the text.

#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
ShellExecute("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("!O")
Send("F")
WinWaitActive("Font")
Sleep(500)
$select = ComboLBox_SelectString("Font", "", "[CLASS:ComboLBox; INSTANCE:1]")
MsgBox(0, "", $select)

Func ComboLBox_SelectString($Window, $WindowText, $ControlID)
    Local $tInfo
    $hCombo = ControlGetHandle($Window, $WindowText, $ControlID)
    If _GUICtrlComboBox_GetComboBoxInfo($hCombo, $tInfo) Then
        $hEdit = DllStructGetData($tInfo, "hEdit")
        $hList = DllStructGetData($tInfo, "hList")

        Return _GUICtrlEdit_GetText($hEdit)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>ComboLBox_SelectString

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

However, if I get the text of the Edit box (above the combobox), the function does not work and returns 0.

_GUICtrlComboBox_GetEditText ($hWnd)

$hWnd = Control ID/Handle to the control 

$hEdit = DllStructGetData($tInfo, "hEdit")
_GUICtrlEdit_GetText($hEdit)

$hEdit = Handle

Read about "_GUICtrlComboBox_GetComboBoxInfo"

ComboBox consists of three elements
