Populate dropdown items with section names from .ini file

3 posts in this topic

I've never worked with an array or dropdown menu before and I can't seem to wrap it around my head this morning.  Maybe I just need more coffee but I'm trying to populate a GUI dropdown menu with section names of a .ini file.  Here is what I have for this part but I don't know where to go from here.  The msgbox thing was only testing it but I kinda got stuck here.

 

local $aSectionnames = IniReadSectionNames(@DesktopDir & "\Scripts\BatteryConfig.ini")

if Not @error Then
For $i = 1 to $aSectionnames[0]
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Test", $aSectionnames[$i])
    Next
EndIf

 

Here is my very basic dropdown menu I want to populate

 

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 413, 213, 192, 124)
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Combo1", 80, 24, 241, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 152, 56, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

 

 

Thanks!

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 413, 213, 192, 124)
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 80, 24, 241, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 152, 56, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

; Get the sections of the ini file
Global $aSections = IniReadSectionNames(@DesktopDir & "\Scripts\BatteryConfig.ini")
; If the IniReadSectionNames succeeded, conver the array to a string with each item separated by a | (pipe) and set the default selected item to $aSections[1]
If (Not @Error) Then GUICtrlSetData($Combo1, _ArraytoString($aSections, "|", 1), $aSections[1])

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

You can use _ArrayToString to convert the array of sections to a string separated by a pipe (|) that you can use for GUICtrlSetData. I started the _ArrayToString at row 1 since the first element in the $aSections array is the # of sections (Useless information for a combobox).

      Hi,
       
      I am trying to create a list view wich shows the content of an ini file. There is a pulldown menu wich allows me to check a certain status in the ini file if the status is found it should read out the key and in every section the same key is located after that it should fill out the listview with all results found.
       
      $OVERZICHTGUI = GUICreate("RMA Overzicht", 1235, 742, -1, -1) GUICtrlCreateLabel("Ingelogd als: " & $NAAMMEDEWERKER, 8, 0) GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 8, 16, 185, 89) GUICtrlCreateLabel("Status:", 32, 40, 37, 17) $STATUS = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 32, 64, 140, 25,BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $WS_VSCROLL)) GUICtrlSetData($STATUS, "Aangevraagd|Verzonden|Afgehandeld", "") GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1) $View = GUICtrlCreateListView("RMANR|RMANRLEV|DEBITNR|KLANT|STATUS|MODEL|SERIENR|AANGEMELDDOOR|AANMELDDATUM|VERZENDDATUM|RETOURDATUM|KLACHT|OPLOSSING", 8, 120, 1218, 614) $Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hoofdmenu", 1104, 8, 123, 33) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $EXIT $YesOrNo = msgBox(4,"","Terug naar het hoofdmenu?") If $YesOrNo = 6 then GUIDelete($OVERZICHTGUI) MAINMENU() ExitLoop EndIf Case $STATUS $GO = 1 $STATE = GUICtrlRead($STATUS) Local $aArray = IniReadSection(@ScriptDir & "\DB\rma.ini", "STATUS") _ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Gevonden") $FOUNDRMANR = _ArraySearch($aArray, $STATE) MsgBox(4096, "", $FOUNDRMANR) If $FOUNDRMANR = -1 Then MsgBox(4096, "Not Found", "No RMA requests with this status found.") $GO = 0 EndIf If $GO = 1 Then $VAR = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\DB\rma.ini", "RMANR", $FOUNDRMANR, "Not found") MsgBox(4096, "", $VAR) EndIf EndSwitch WEnd

      Hi,
      i a stuck with a hopefully a little problem.
      I know the value of a not yet known key in an ini file.
      I need to be able to find the key using the value. The value is a unique value in a section.
       
      Hope you guys can help me.

      Hello all,
      Summary: I have a basic piece of code that is to be a part of a much larger project; I just can't seem to get the right output. I'm retrieving two lots of powershell data into 2 x 1d arrays and trying to add them into a single 2d array. Retrieving the data together into the 2d array seemed harder, due to the application names varying too much to string split. Data being pulled is application name and GUID. From here I will use this info in a drop down box and an uninstall button to run the required command to remove the selected software (have this sorted already).
      Problem: When I merge the data it doesn't put the application name and GUID on the same row in differing columns eg. my test box has 24 applications plus some superfluous data from Powershell to be cleaned up by the _arraydeletes. Instead I end up with an array with 58 rows and 2 columns; whereas my temp 1d arrays have 28 rows. As you can see I've tried both _ArrayInsert and _ArrayAdd but I still get the same result.
      Question: Is there something that I'm doing wrong in putting the data into the 2d array or do I just need to do some more post processing to tidy it up and align the names and GUIDs?
      Code:
      #include <Array.au3> $Cmd1 = (" /c Powershell.exe " & Chr(34) & "Get-WmiObject -Class win32reg_addremoveprograms | where {$_.ProdID -like " & Chr(34) & Chr(123) & Chr(42) & Chr(125) & Chr(34) & "} | select DisplayName" & Chr(34)) $Cmd2 = (" /c Powershell.exe " & Chr(34) & "Get-WmiObject -Class win32reg_addremoveprograms | where {$_.ProdID -like " & Chr(34) & Chr(123) & Chr(42) & Chr(125) & Chr(34) & "} | select ProdID" & Chr(34)) Global $aNameGUID[1][2] ;_ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) ReadApps($Cmd1,0) ;_ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) ReadApps($Cmd2,1) _ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) Terminate() Func ReadApps($Command,$col) $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & $Command, "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ProcessWaitClose($DOS) $DOSOut = StdoutRead($DOS) ;MsgBox(0,"Data",$DOSOut) ;Show the line items that we want in the array Local $tmpArray = StringSplit(StringTrimRight(StringStripCR($DOSOut), StringLen(@CRLF)), @CRLF) If @error Then MsgBox(0,"FAIL","I failed to find objects") Exit Else _ArrayDisplay($tmpArray) EndIf ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 3) ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 2) ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 1) ;$tmpArray[0] = $tmpArray[0] - 3 For $i = 0 To UBound($tmpArray) - 1 ;_ArrayAdd($aNameGUID, $tmpArray[$i], $col) _ArrayInsert($aNameGUID, 0, $tmpArray[$i], $col) Next $tmpArray = 0 EndFunc ;==>ReadApps While 1 Sleep(1500) WEnd Func Terminate() Exit 0 EndFunc ;==>Terminate Thanks in advance,

      Hi

It`s working but problem is when I put this inside loop, because I need run script until all computers will not be removed from the list (targets.txt). I don`t know how to "refresh" array
      Please help
      #include <File.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $PC_list = "\targets.txt" Local $bTargets = FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir& $PC_list) Do _check_ping() ;count_lines Local $file_count_lines = _FileCountLines(@ScriptDir& $PC_list) $i = $file_count_lines ConsoleWrite("na liście "&$i & @CRLF) Until $i = 0 ; IF &i = 0 then show MsgBox MsgBox(1, "xXx", "Finish") ;PING Func _check_ping() For $sPC In $bTargets $var = Ping($sPC, 250) If $var Then ConsoleWrite($sPC &"online"& @CRLF) ;Do something ;Delete $sPC from targets.txt Local $_Array _FileReadToArray ( @ScriptDir& "\targets.txt", $_Array ) $_Array = _DeleteArrayElementWithStringInstr ( $_Array, $sPC ) _FileWriteFromArray ( @ScriptDir& "\targets.txt", $_Array, 1 ) Sleep(200) Else ConsoleWrite($sPC &"offline"& @CRLF) EndIf Next EndFunc ;DELETE LINE FROM TXT Func _DeleteArrayElementWithStringInstr ( $_Array, $_String ) Local $_Item For $_Element In $_Array If StringInStr ( $_Element, $_String ) <> 0 Then _ArrayDelete ( $_Array, $_Item ) Else $_Item+=1 EndIf Next Return ( $_Array ) EndFunc ;==> _DeleteArrayElementWithStringInstr ( )

      Hi guys,
      talking about array in array, I would like to directly assign a value to an element in an array contained in another array.
      While it is quite simple to access the value if it is already setted:
      Local $a[3] = [1, 2], $b[2] = [3, 4] $a[2] = $b ConsoleWrite(($a[2])[0] & " " & ($a[2])[1] & @CRLF) If I try to write directly to the element, I get an error:
      Local $a[3] = [1, 2] Local $b[2] $a[2] = $b ($a[2])[0] = 1 Is assigning first every value of the contained array and then including it in the container the only way?
