Have you tried:

$Input1 = GuiCtrlCreatecombo("These|Are|different|Drop|downs", 10, 10, 100, 20)

Merchants,

You need a "cuebanner": :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>

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

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 300, 20)
GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, "These|are|the|selections")
_GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($cCombo, "Not a selection")

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 50, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetState($cButton, $GUI_FOCUS)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
Note that the text is only visible when the combo does not have focus - which is why I added the button. ;)

M23 not bad, but it was not what i was looking for

i know one solution but only if there is no other way

can you confirm this M23?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 300, 20)
GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, "These|are|the|selections")
_GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($cCombo, "Not a selection")
$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 50, 80, 30)
$testButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test2", 10, 100, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetState($cButton, $GUI_FOCUS)
GUISetState()
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Exit
    Case $testButton
        ControlSetText("[CLASS:AutoIt v3 GUI]", "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]", "New Text Here" )
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Merchants,

 

M23 not bad, but it was not what i was looking for

But it is exactly what you asked for - you need to explain your requirements more carefully in future. ;)

If you want to rest the cuebanner within the script then you just need to redefine it: :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>

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

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 300, 20)
GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, "These|are|the|selections")
_GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($cCombo, "Not a selection")

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 50, 80, 30)
$testButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test2", 10, 100, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetState($cButton, $GUI_FOCUS)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $testButton
            _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($cCombo, "New text here")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

i am sorry but i have done that

i want to set text in a combo input without make a item of it

 

i want to use/edit the new text in the combo input not when i click it and it disappears..

if i use GUICtrlSetData then it wil make a item of it and that is not what i want

that was my requirements

Merchants,

I understand now - and the only way I can imagine it is possible is the method you have shown above, although you can streamline the syntax a bit: :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

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

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 300, 20)
GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, "|These|are|the|selections")
ControlSetText($hGUI, "", $cCombo, "Not a selection")

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Change Text", 10, 50, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cButton
            ControlSetText($hGUI, "", $cCombo, "Nor is this a selection either")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

here (_GUICtrlComboBox_GetEditText):

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>

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

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 300, 20)
GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, "These|are|the|selections")
_GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($cCombo, "Not a selection")

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 50, 80, 30)
$testButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test2", 10, 100, 80, 30)
$test2Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test3", 10, 150, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetState($cButton, $GUI_FOCUS)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $testButton
            _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($cCombo, "New text here")
        Case $test2Button
            ConsoleWrite(_GUICtrlComboBox_GetEditText($cCombo) & @CRLF)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

edit: oops, I got the requirement backwards...I think.

check out the function lists in the helpfile...they are named exactly like what they do:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>

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

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 300, 20)
GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, "These|are|the|selections|a|b|c|d|e|f|g|h|i|j|k|l|m|n|o|p|q|r|s|t|1|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!|!!|!")
_GUICtrlComboBox_SetMinVisible($cCombo,_GUICtrlComboBox_GetCount($cCombo))

_GUICtrlComboBox_SetCueBanner($cCombo, "Not a selection")

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 50, 80, 30)
$testButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test2", 10, 100, 80, 30)
$test2Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test3", 10, 150, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetState($cButton, $GUI_FOCUS)
