Drop Down menu

Recommended Posts

GraaF1337

So i'ev been trying to create a drop down menu, without luck, but then i found this code on the forum:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

; Here is the array
Global $aArray[5] = ["A", "B", "C", "D", "E"]

; And here we get the elements into a list
$sList = ""
For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    $sList &= "|" & $aArray[$i]
Next

; Create a GUI
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Form1", 500, 500)

; Create the combo
$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 250, 20)
; And fill it
GUICtrlSetData($hCombo, $sList)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

And it works like a charm, but i have another issue.

I want to let's say that the user picks the first one on the drop down menu, that a msgbox should popup.

I've tried this so far without luck:

If $i = 1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "asd", "asdas")
    EndIf

And

If $aArray = "A" Then
    MsgBox(0, "asd", "asdas")
    EndIf

And

If $aArray = 1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "asd", "asdas")
    EndIf

And now im kinda clueless, it's propperly just me completely doing this wrong, so i would like some help ;)

GraaF1337,

Look for the "combo event" message and then read the selection:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

; Here is the array
Global $aArray[5] = ["A", "B", "C", "D", "E"]

; And here we get the elements into a list
$sList = ""
For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    $sList &= "|" & $aArray[$i]
Next

; Create a GUI
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Form1", 500, 500)

; Create the combo
$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 250, 20)
; And fill it
GUICtrlSetData($hCombo, $sList)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hCombo
            Switch GUICtrlRead($hCombo)
                Case "A"
                    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Hi", "A")
                Case "B"
                    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Hi", "B")
                Case "C"
                    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Hi", "C")
                Case "D"
                    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Hi", "D")
                Case "E"
                    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Hi", "E")
            EndSwitch
    EndSwitch
WEnd
All clear? :)

GraaF1337,

I got 1 more question

That is 2 questions! :D

If you do not want to type in the combo edit you need to apply the $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST to make it read-only. :)

Windows automatically selects the text in an active combo edit when a selection in made - but if you apply the read-only style as above it no longer happens. ;)
