Combo Selection

Recommended Posts

Okay, boys and girls.

I have read your posts above and didn't find answer for my following question: How to use ComboBox(DropDown) entry selection?

There is function: 


"If a matching item is found, it is selected and copied to the edit control."

I have following script:

"#include <GuiComboBox.au3>

_GUICtrlComboBox_SelectString(5047, "Broker Contract")"
>>>> Control <<<<
Class: ComboBox
Instance: 1
ClassnameNN: ComboBox1
Advanced (Class): [CLASS:ComboBox; INSTANCE:1]
ID: 5047
Position: 149, 105
Size: 260, 21
ControlClick Coords: 79, 11
Style: 0x50010203
ExStyle: 0x00000004
Handle: 0x00550D5A


From console:

>"...autoit3.exe" /ErrorStdOut "...XA_New_ResCon.au3"    
>Exit code: 0    Time: 3.212
No errors... No selection of necessary entry...
What's wrong?

Did you notice that the last post in the thread you originally hijacked dated from over 9 years ago and that the OP had not been online for over 7 years? :huh:

Please do not necro-post like that again - just open a new thread (as I have now done for you) and link to the old one if it is absolutely necessary for understanding the problem. We ask you to do this for two main reasons:


- 1. The language advances and the functionality might well be included in core or UDF code by now

- 2. The changes in language syntax mean that it is likely that code from more than a couple of years ago may well not run under the current release interpreter without significant modification.

Thanks for your understanding. :)
