What data is returned when you read a combo list?

Recommended Posts

#include <GUIconstants.au3>
;~ #include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $hGui = GUICreate("Test", 200, 80)
Global $cmbCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 180, 60)

GUICtrlSetData($cmbCombo, "Item 1|Item 2|Item 3", "Item 1")

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "WM_COMMAND")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGui)

While (True)
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit 0
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func WM_COMMAND($hWndFrom, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    Local $iIDFrom = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF) ; Low Word
    Local $iCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) ; Hi Word

    Switch ($hWndFrom)
        Case $hGui
            Switch $iCode
                Case $CBN_EDITCHANGE
                    ConsoleWrite("User is editing combo item, item '" & GUICtrlRead($cmbCombo) & "' is currently selected" & @LF)

                Case $CBN_SELCHANGE
                    ConsoleWrite("User changed combo item, item '" & GUICtrlRead($cmbCombo) & "' is currently selected" & @LF)
            EndSwitch
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

This might help you understand a little more. Check out _GUICtrlComboBox_Create, you can get some more functionality using the _GUICtrlComboBox UDF. Also $iIDFrom is used for the control id so if you had multiple Combo Boxes.

I did see it kylomas. It said the return value is the value selected for a combo list. I just wanted to know if the value selected is the text or if each selection has been assigned a value.

No reason to be super hostile. You gotta realize a lot of people come here with simple questions that are answered 99.99% of the time in the help file. In some cases, at least I struggled with this, they don't know where to look in the help file.

You, on the other hand, had the GUICtrlRead already in your example.

GUICtrlRead

Read state or data of a control.

Combo, List: The value selected

And then there's the example for the GUICtrlCreateCombo

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

Example()

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

    ; Create a combobox control.
    Local $idComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Item 1", 10, 10, 185, 20)
    Local $idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 210, 170, 85, 25)

    ; Add additional items to the combobox.
    GUICtrlSetData($idComboBox, "Item 2|Item 3", "Item 2")

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

        EndSwitch
    WEnd

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

He was just playing you guys.

He certainly is a real dumb-ass, but he isn't quite that dumb.

His racist ass will be banned shortly, no doubt, so I suggest we ignore him until then.

@InunoTaishou - I have noticed you have been very helpful at the forum regularly, and that is to be praised and admired.

But why would you give such a complex response to someone who seemingly couldn't even understand a Combo?

I chose to give an example that would constantly give output whenever the user would interact with the control. So they could see what was selected when they clicked an item in the combobox or started typing in the combobox. Just something he can play with since he was just asking what the value of GUICtrlRead would be.

Although I probably should have added more comments as to what they $iCodes were and how to activate them.

And you don't think he would have seen any of that if he ran his own simple code, with say a MsgBox?

Your call, but personally I think it better to give code that can be understood simply and easily ... targeted to the level the questioning coder is at.

P.S. Don't let my investigative comments & critique discourage you from helping though. :D

PEscobar,

As all you seem to ask about are gamebots, and now you have decided to grossly insult us all when offered pointers to answers that are easily available in the Help file, I think it best that you do indeed "quit the AutoIt forums". And to help you with this admirable desire, I will now ensure that you do.

      i finally found an UDF that do what i want
      but unfortunately all the functions work,  but the function that i want it not working.
      this is the udf
      the function that  i need is _IniReadFromString
      this is the function

      Func _IniReadFromString($szInput, $szSection, $szKey, $Default) $szInput = StringStripCR($szInput) Local $aRegMl = StringRegExp($szInput, "\[" & __StringEscapeRegExp($szSection) & "\]\n+(?:[^\[].*?=.*\n)*" & __StringEscapeRegExp($szKey) & "=(.*)\n?(", 3) If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, $Default) ; key not found Return $aRegMl[0] EndFunc;==>_IniReadFromString
      i hope that any one can help me
      thank you in advance

      I don't have any experience compiling AutoIt scripts or know of any best practices regarding said scripts so I was wondering, what are some of the options for passing data to complied scripts? Here's an example of what I mean by "option": Writing data to a text file, then running a script which reads the data from that text file.
      Thanks!
      I apologize if this topic is a little lackluster

      (Edited from original.  Please note that I AM NOT AN AUTOIT EXPERT.  I write code using Autoit frequently but I am no expert, especially when it comes to I/O.  So any remarks that start with "Why did you..." can be answered by referring to the first sentence.  This project was done in Autoit because of an interface I built to display the data.)
      Attached is a program and ascii input file I wrote to read stock price data, convert it to binary and then read it back into the program in binary.  The goal was to show increased performance for reading the files in binary and provide a demo on how to read/write binary for int32, int64, double and strings for anyone who might find it helpful.  The results on my PC show the following:
      Time to read ascii file only: 456.981951167202
      Ascii read & process time: 6061.83075631701
      Binary write file time: 14787.9184635239
      Time just to read binary file: 42.418867292311
      Binary read and process time: 4515.16129830537
      A couple things to note:
      1) The 32 MB ascii file took 10x longer to read than the 15 MB binary file.  Not entirely sure why.  Both were read into a buffer.
      2) The Binary write takes a long time but I made no effort to optimize this because the plan was to write this file one time only so I don't mind if it takes longer to write this file.  I care much more about how long it takes to read the file because I will be reading it many times.
      3) There was a modest gain in converting the ascii file to binary in terms of file size and reading speed.
      So big picture... not sure it's worth the effort to convert the files to binary even though most of the data is numerical data in the binary file.  That was actually surprising as I expected there would be more of a difference.  Any ideas on how to get the binary data to read at a faster rate would be great.
