combobox (ShowDropDown)

3 posts in this topic

how can we make the DropDown wait for a full user input selection until HideDropDown is set and not conditioned to a sleep() pause
or is there a way to disable the data reading on hover

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include<ComboConstants.au3>
Example()

Func Example()
    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example", 300, 200)

    ; Create a combobox control.
    Local $idComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("test", 10, 10, 185, 20, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
    Local $idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 210, 170, 85, 25)
    Local $idtest = GUICtrlCreateButton("test", 100, 170, 85, 25)
    ; Add additional items to the combobox.
    GUICtrlSetData($idComboBox, "Item 1|Item 2|Item 3", "test")

    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    Local $sComboRead = ""

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $idClose
                ExitLoop
            Case $idtest
                Do
                    ControlCommand($hGUI, "", $idComboBox, "ShowDropDown", "")
                    Sleep(100)
                Until GUICtrlRead($idComboBox) <> "test"
                Local $data = GUICtrlRead($idComboBox)
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The combobox is currently displaying: " & $data, 0, $hGUI)

        EndSwitch
    WEnd

    ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls.
    GUIDelete($hGUI)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Deye,

I would do it like this:

Case $idtest

    _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_ShowDropDown($idComboBox, True)
    While 1
        If GUIGetMsg() = $idComboBox Then ExitLoop

        Sleep(10)
    WEnd

    Local $data = GUICtrlRead($idComboBox)
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The combobox is currently displaying: " & $data, 0, $hGUI)

Any use?
