Got empty value using GUICtrlComboBoxEx_GetItemText

Recommended Posts



 I would like to ask for your help, regarding getting the value of the combo box in a desktop application.

I tried the codes below, but I got an empty value. I am really asking for your help if how can I display the value of the combox.

Func CheckStockCode()
    $stockWin = Call(OpenClass_32770)
    Local $sText
    _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_GetItemText(4029, 1, $sText)
    MsgBox(1, "OUTPUT", $sText)
EndFunc   ;==>CheckStockCode

 Thanks in advance,

      7/8/2018: Uploaded a new SciTe4AutoIt3.exe v18.708.1148.0 installer.
      It has been over a year since the last update of the full SciTE4AutoIt3 installer whch mainly had to do with the fact that Neil was moving toward v4 of SciTE and I wanted to wait for a stable version.
      Any help with testing this version before general release is appreciated.
      Also any feedback is welcome in caseI missed something or suggestions for improvement before releasing.
      ==> SciTE4AutoIt3 v18.708.1148.0

      Addition/Changes/Fixes in the current installer:
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 8-7-2018 *** Merged the SciTE v 4.1.0 by Neil Hodgson with our own version of SciTE. (Jos)     This is a major change from the previous version so ensure you update all files including LUA or else you will get errors!     - SciLexer au3: Fixed issues with nested CommentBlocks not always showing the correct color.     - SciLexer au3: Change any line starting with # and no recognised keyword to be shown with the Pre-Processor in stead of default.     - Changed Shortcut for AU3INFO to Ctrl+Shift+F6.     - Moved the session restore logic for (save.session.advanced=1)into SciTE in stead of LoadSession.lua as that was clearing the recent files list of the last session       when opening a file by double cliking it. This is fixed with this change.       Default remains 0 so when a file is double clicked the last session isn't restored unless you add this to SciTEuser.properties:       "save.session.advanced=1"     - updated Tools.lua replacing [s%] with [ /t] to avoid empty lines being stripped by those functions. (Thanks Enyby) *** Updated AutoIt3Wrapper v18.708.1148.0 (Jos)     - 17.224.935.1 Added /autoit3dir to au3stripper commandline, when provided to AutoIt3Wrapper., to ensure the included files are for the correct AutoIt3 directory     - 17.224.935.2 Added directives:          #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_CompanyName=          ;Company field          #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_LegalTrademarks=      ;Trademark field     - 17.224.935.5 Fixed Versioning when files contain backets ->  ()     - 17.224.935.6 Added support for :          #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3stripper_Stop_OnError=        ;(Y/N) Continue/Stop on Warnings.(Default=N)     - 17.224.935.7 added INI support for:           [Other]            Au3Stripper_Stop_OnError=n     - 17.224.935.10 Minor changes in console messages     - 17.224.935.11 Modifications from JPM:         - add #AutpIt3Wrapper_Res_Cursor_Add         - "clean" a little bit AutoIt3Wrapper.au3 *** Updated Au3Stripper v18.708.1148.0 (Jos)     - 17.224.935.1 Fixed crash when an include file contains longer record than 4096 characters.     - 17.224.935.2 Changed /rsln to replace @ScriptLineNumber in the Master script with "XXX/YYY". XXX is the master script linenumber, YYY is the Merged script linenumber.     - 17.224.935.3 Fixed issue detecting #cs #ce when a space was missing after the directive.     - 17.224.935.4 Changed Close/Open logic for Tracelog to (hopefully) avoid the hardcrash.     - 17.224.935.5 improved speed avoiding rereading include files to determine the max rec len.     - 17.224.935.6 improved speed by re-coding the check for long records.     - 17.224.935.7 Made sure the returncode is the highest from all iterations in stead of the last iteration.     - 17.224.935.8 fix for reported bug: https://www.autoitscript.com/trac/autoit/ticket/3623#comment:4     - 17.224.935.9 added support for #autoit3wrapper_autoit3dir     - 17.224.935.10 Fixed support for #autoit3wrapper_autoit3dir when followed by linecomment                     Stop processing when include file isn't found.     - 18.624.1847.1 strip the leading and trailing double quotes from the autoit3dir directive to avoid an error when they are specified.     - 18.624.1847.2 Fixed Hardcrash in the Include logic     - 18.624.1847.3 Fixed Hardcrash in Func stripping logic by enlarging the base table size     - 18.702.1556.1 Fixed regression bug with the Translate option.     - 18.703.1808.2 Fixed regression bug with the Stripping FUNC logic for the first found FUNC. *** Updated SciTEConfig v18.708.1148.0 (Jos)     - 17.224.935.1 No updates *** Updated Tidy v18.708.1148.0 (Jos)     - 17.224.935.1 Added option  to copy comments from #CS to #CE. Default is to copy the comments.                    Added Tidy Parameters:  /Skip_CE_Comment or /scec will skip this copy action                    Added INI option:                      * * *  Add comment to #CE/#CommentEnd and make it the same as the #CS/CommentStart Comments.                      ce_comment=1     - 17.224.935.2 Fix issue with Copy comments on comment start - end     - 17.224.935.4 Fix another issue with Copy comments on comment start - end -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ==> ScitillaHistory page containing all SciTE-Scintilla updates.

      Good evening everyone
      I was trying to insert function header to the functions of my script, but, in the SciTE console, this appears:
      Function or struct definition not found, unable to insert header. @Jos Any suggestion?
      Thanks in advance.

      Best Regards.

      I  possibly misunderstood the value of combo boxes, but I thought you could type a value, press enter and the combo box would store that value.
      The reason for wanting this is to store a history of typed commands into the combo box (accepted by pressing enter).
      After hours of trying to trap enter on a combobox I realized that the enter event was not registering.
      I had code like this (which used to work on a input box), but it does not for a combobox (because it does not accept enter)
      unc WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam) Local $nNotifyCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) Local $nID = BitAND($wParam, 0x0000FFFF) If $hWnd = $CmdForm Then If $nID = $ComboInput Then ; useed to work on a normal input box If _IsPressed('0D') Then ; enter was pressed, respond DoCmd() Anyone able to help?
