Previous User Drop Down

Recommended Posts

I currently am developing a little GUI to run some software automation.  In this GUI a user will add a username into a GUICtrlCreateInput.  I always want this to be blank to start with but I want it to remember the usernames that have been used previously.  I would like to click on a drop down arrow and have the past three or so viewable.  Is this possible?

According to MicroSoft the "Combo" name is correct. o:)

Thanks all for your posts to this question.  I am trying to use the IniWrite and IniRead functions, but I am a little confused on how I could get them to work with my GUI.  Does anyone have an example of this? my attempts at searching the forums have been uneventful.

Here is a quick and dirty, to give you a general idea. The first time, as there is nothing in the ini, you'll get a blank input. Thereafter, you'll get whatever was typed into the input on the previous run.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$ini = @DesktopDir & "\My.ini"

GUICreate("Test", 300, 200)
$lbl = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please enter a name", 100, 10, 100, 30)
$name = GUICtrlCreateInput(IniRead($ini, "Name", "Name1", ""), 10, 45, 280, 40)


    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                IniWrite($ini, "Name", "Name1", GUICtrlRead($name))
