Hello, i want to create a List with some information in it. Then there is an inputbox in which the user has to put in one of the items in the list.

Now I want the script to check wether the input is an element of the list, if it is, then i want to open e.g. a MsgBox with text "exiting", if it doesnt exist the a MsgBox with text "not exiting". 

How can I solve this?

I already tried:

Gloabal $info_1 = "info_1"
Gloabal $info_2 = "info_2"
Gloabal $info_3 = "info_3"

$information = GUICtrlCreateList("", XX, XX, XX, XX)
$i_input = Inputbot ("", XX, XX, XX, XX)
$selection = String(GUICtrlRead($i_input)

_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($information, $info_1)
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($information, $info_2)
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($information, $info_3)

If $selection == $info1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "true")
    Else MsgBox(0, "", "falses)
EndIf
If $selection == $info2 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "true")
    Else MsgBox(0, "", "falses)
EndIf
If $selection == $info2 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "true")
    Else MsgBox(0, "", "falses)
EndIf

and 

Gloabal $info_1 = "info_1"
Gloabal $info_2 = "info_2"
Gloabal $info_3 = "info_3"

$information = GUICtrlCreateList("", XX, XX, XX, XX)
$i_input = Inputbot ("", XX, XX, XX, XX)
$selection = String(GUICtrlRead($i_input)

_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($information, $info_1)
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($information, $info_2)
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($information, $info_3)

If $selection <> $info1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "false")
    Else MsgBox(0, "", "true)
EndIf
If $selection <> $info2 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "false")
    Else MsgBox(0, "", "true)
EndIf
If $selection <> $info2 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "false")
    Else MsgBox(0, "", "true)
EndIf

Is Inputbot a typo - means: it should be InputBox?

The script you posted doesn't work:
You are missing a quote in

Else MsgBox(0, "", "true)

before the closing bracket (3 times in your script).

morepewpew,

There are many things about that scribble that would prevent it running - I suggest you make more of an effort in future if you want help.

Here is a working script that does what you want:

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

#include <GuiListBox.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
$cCheck = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check", 250, 10, 80, 20)

$cInformation = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 100, 200, 200)
GUICtrlSetData($cInformation, "info_1|info_2|info_3")

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cCheck
            $sText = GUICtrlRead($cInput)
            $iIndex = _GUICtrlListBox_FindString($cInformation, $sText)
            If $iIndex = -1 Then
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Checked", "Not exiting")
            Else
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Checked", "Exiting")
                Exit
            EndIf
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Study it and work out how it works - do ask questions if you have any.

morepewpew,

I would suggest testing the input content to check that there was something there before checking it against the list. I am sure you can manage to add an If...Then to that code.

Trong,

That method will work fine for a few items in the list, but will become a serious coding problem if there are more.

If only check exists/not exists _GUICtrlListBox_FindString($ControlID,$StringToSearch, 1)  is quickly!

If you need to read the data for comparison  or for use on further, I will:
If single item will be used IF THEN ELSE ! 
If many items will be used Switch !

Trong,

So you are suggesting making every item in the list a Case within a Switch? What if there are 100 items in the list? Surely using a single command to check the whole list control has to be the better way?

At the moment I made it like this:

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

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
$cCheck = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check", 250, 10, 80, 20)

$cInformation = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 100, 200, 200)
GUICtrlSetData($cInformation, "info_1|info_2|info_3")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cCheck
            $sText = GUICtrlRead($cInput)
            $iIndex = _GUICtrlListBox_FindString($cInformation, $sText)
            If $sText = "" Then
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Checked", "Empty Inputbox")
            ElseIf $iIndex = -1 Then
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Checked", "Not exiting")
            Else
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Checked", "Exiting. Input was: " & $sText)
                Exit
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I will have a list with about 30 Items, do you think this will work?

Quite possibly - but why do you not check to see if it works rather then expecting someone else to do so for you?

Next
GUICtrlSetData($ListCommand, $perList)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Global $sText, $xText, $iIndex

    Switch GUIGetMsg()

EndFunc   ;==>ExecuteCommand

IF or SWITCH too many is bad, with large data best to use the database.

I mean, depending on the case will use the IF or SWITCH or something suitable for the purpose of the script. 

With the goal of finding as mentioned using _GUICtrlListBox_FindString() is right!
