Misbehaving combo box control

Recommended Posts

MattHiggs

So instead of posting the applicable code, I have attached the whole file instead.  I am running into an issue where, when the script first launches, $combo3 in $form1_1 is, by default, displaying one of the entries that is meant to be selected, while all the other combo boxes are, by default (and desired state), blank and require user interaction.  I THINK it might have to do with the new function I incorporated into the script, which allows for all of the encrypted user data stored in the "ini" file to be decrypted and exported to a txt file which would allow users to manually edit data that is stored in ini and displayed in GUI.  Once the user has edited the data to reflect info they want,  they select to import the data, which will rename the old ini file to a ".backini" file and recreate the ini from the txt file which the user edited.  the code which executes these steps is assigned to $button18 and $button26 respectively in $form1_1.  Any input is appreciated.  Also, the _selfDelete file is UDF that is needed to compile script.

Your script is very big. For my own security reasons i test only scripts i think to unerstood what they are doing. To understood if your script is no security risc for me i need to much time.

So please make a small runable small script which showing the missbehaving of combobox.

MattHiggs,

I see that you are setting the multiple items in $Combo3 one at a time using a loop (section lines 320-360). As explained in the Help file:

If the "data" corresponds to an already existing entry it is set as the default.

which may well be the explanation, as you do not set a default for the combo in the code itself.

I suggest running the code and checking exactly what values you are adding to the combo in question - if you find a duplicate then you have your answer.

Sorry for late response.  I will give it a try, but my goal here is to be able to pull the information which will be the content of the combo boxes from a ini file.  Furthermore, I do the same "looping" method to set the content of all of the combo boxes in that particular window the exact same way using the same logic, so why is only the one acting up?  Is there a more standard way or "best practice" to assigning the values in a combo box dynamically?
