New here - only just started working with AutoIt for the first time last week.  I am using AutoIt to automate several different executables/Install Wizards, most of which are from printer manufacturers to install their drivers and select the one you want to create printers (Windows 7).  I've completed about 4 of these so far. 

I have finally come upon my first ListBox - except according to Window Info, it is a "TEPListBox.UnicodeClass."  Have no idea if that makes a difference or not.  I have searched the Wiki here and searched many other forums - almost all seem to be about how to create your own GUIs with ListBoxes, but I'm finding very little on selecting a single item from a ListBox.  This window has two ListBoxes - the first one is a "TListBox" with just one option, so I don't have to worry about that.  The 2nd ListBox is this "TEPListBox" with about 120 printer names listed.  I just need to select/highlight the printer name we need and then hit the "Next" button, but I guess maybe I'm using the wrong commands (with what I could find online).  Here is the Summary of the Window Info for this 2nd ListBox:

>>>> Control <<<<
Class:    TEPListBox.UnicodeClass
Instance:    1
ClassnameNN:    TEPListBox.UnicodeClass1
Name:    
Advanced (Class):    [CLASS:TEPListBox.UnicodeClass; INSTANCE:1]
ID:    2294372
Text:    
Position:    248, 148
Size:    233, 121
ControlClick Coords:    76, 72
Style:    0x54210941
ExStyle:    0x00000200
Handle:    0x0000000000230264

>>>> Mouse <<<<
Position:    715, 564
Cursor ID:    0
Color:    0xFFFFFF

>>>> StatusBar <<<<

>>>> ToolsBar <<<<

>>>> Visible Text <<<<
&Exit
&Help
&Next >
< &Previous
&Change location...


>>>> Hidden Text <<<<

 

And here are some of the commands I've tried:

ControlCommand ("Selecting The Printer", "", "[CLASS:TEPListBox.UnicodeClass; INSTANCE:1]", "SelectString", "ZDesigner LP 2844")

ControlCommand ("Selecting The Printer", "", "[CLASS:TEPListBox; INSTANCE:1]", "SelectString", "ZDesigner LP 2844")

ControlCommand ("Selecting The Printer", "", "[CLASS:ListBox; INSTANCE:1]", "SelectString", "ZDesigner LP 2844")

ControlCommand ("Selecting The Printer", "", "[CLASS:ListBox]", "SelectString", "ZDesigner LP 2844")

Highlight just stays on the first option in the ListBox with all of these, so not sure where to proceed.  Or is ControlCommand just not the way I want to go here?  One other thing - there is a lot of text in this window, but what's listed as "Visible text" is just the text in each of the four buttons below.  There is "Printers" above this ListBox (the "P" is underlined), but that is not listed as a "Visible text" for this window and I'm not sure why.

Thank you

Got an answer from a co-worker whom I discovered used to use AutoIt.  Not the cleanest answer, but it works.  He looked at this particular Install Wizard and says it was "implemented in a non-standard way", so standard GUIListBox commands may not work/help.

I'm having to do a

Send ("{TAB 6}")

just to get to the ListBox, and then a

Send ("{DOWN 67}")

to scroll down to my particular selection.  Again, probably not the "accepted" way it should be handled - but it's working!

Most installation programs come with command line switches to let you do a silent install. Did you check this for your programs?

For these particular installs, there is a point where the user must install a USB cable before the install will continue, hence our need for AutoIt so they can see when it stops that it's time to install their cable before it will continue on.

      Hello all,
      I am trying to get scrolling events for ListBox (mouse wheel and up/down arrows) but without success. The event not occured on row change but if I click on it - yes
      The ComboBox works fine even if not in focus (with mouse wheel) but I prefer visual look of ListBox. In addition to all, I can't change the height of control. Unfortunately it depends only on font size and same fonts has different heights between InputBox and ComboBox
      Is there a way to get over the issue?
      Any other ideas for unit selection realization are welcome

      Hi, here are few functions for the ListBox.
      I have searched the forum, but most of the functions are for listview, so i took one example code from melba23 (clear selection) and
      wrote few more functions. (Because my current project needs them).
       
      These functions work only on a Multi-selection ListBox . 
      Edit: Only 1 function does not work with single selection box.
      The functions do: Clear Selection, Delete Selected items, Invert Selection, Move selected items up and down.
       The example code has 2 Listboxes. The selected items on the left ListBox can be moved up and down. The right Listbox has buttons for the other functions.
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListBox.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $singlesel = 0, $iMsgBoxAnswer = 0 ;MsgBox features: Title=Yes, Text=Yes, Buttons=Yes and No, Icon=Question, Modality=Task Modal $iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(8228, "Choose Listbox selecton type", "Yes for single, No for multi selection box") If $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 Then $singlesel = 1 ;Yes Local $BL_1,$BL_2,$BR_1,$BR_2,$BR_3,$BR_4,$BR_5,$BR_6 Global $hForm1 = GUICreate("Listbox test", 349, 287) $LB_1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 6, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $LBS_MULTIPLESEL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) If $singlesel = 1 Then $LB_2 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 179, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) Else $LB_2 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 179, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $LBS_MULTIPLESEL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) $BR_3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Reverse Sel", 272, 22, 68, 17) EndIf $BL_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Up", 20, 3, 35, 18) $BL_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Down", 60, 3, 35, 18) $BR_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Up", 200, 3, 35, 18) $BR_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Down", 240, 3, 35, 18) $BR_4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Clear Sel", 217, 22, 52, 17) $BR_5 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 175, 22, 40, 17) $BR_6 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Populate", 290, 3, 50, 18) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) For $x = 0 To 50 If $x <= 10 Then GUICtrlSetData($LB_1, $x & " test", 0) GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, $x & " Test", 0) Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $BL_1 $a = Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_1, -1) If $a > -1 Then WinSetTitle($hForm1, "", "Moved items: " & $a) Case $BL_2 $a = Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_1, 1) If $a > -1 Then WinSetTitle($hForm1, "", "Moved items: " & $a) Case $BR_1 Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_2, -1) Case $BR_2 Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_2, 1) Case $BR_3 Listbox_ReverseSelection($LB_2) Case $BR_4 Listbox_ClearSelection($LB_2) Case $BR_5 Listbox_DeleteSelectedItems($LB_2) Case $BR_6 ;Populate GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, "") ; Clears the listbox For $x = 0 To 50 GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, $x & " Test", 0) Next EndSwitch WEnd ;note $hLB_ID - is the Listbox id Func Listbox_DeleteSelectedItems($hLB_ID) Local $aSel = _GUICtrlListBox_GetSelItems($hLB_ID) ;Get selected items Local $i, $slb = 0, $y, $x If $aSel[0] = 0 Then ;If the array is empty, there is no selection, or it is a single selection listbox For $x = 0 To _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($hLB_ID) - 1 $y = _GUICtrlListBox_GetSel($hLB_ID, $x) If $y = True Then $slb = 1 _GUICtrlListBox_DeleteString($hLB_ID, $x) ;Perform a delete on single sel.

      Hi, 
      This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
      Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
      Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list             local $index=0             $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list             ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================             ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????              For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items                 If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then                     $index = $i                     exitloop                 EndIf              Next              ;===================================================             ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
      _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
      Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
      Please advise and thanks
