Combobox set name?

Recommended Posts

A strange question, how to set the name of the combobox?

#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form = GUICreate("Form1", 346, 197, -1, -1)
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Combo1", 56, 24, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Combo2|Combo3")
$Combo2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 56, 54, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Combo1|Combo2|Combo3")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

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

GUICtrlSetData has a different behaviors respect other control, for Combobox populating the items but leave the control empty. Isn't strange?

I have see there are function for set the selection item but why we can set the Combo "name" parameter? Or i'm miss something?

Terenz,

The value. In your example try:

GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Combo1|Combo2|Combo3", "Combo2")

Got it? :)

seems hard for you to look in helpfile:

Quote

_GUICtrlComboBoxEx_SetCurSel

Select a string in the list of a ComboBox

#include <GuiComboBoxEx.au3>
_GUICtrlComboBoxEx_SetCurSel ( $hWnd [, $iIndex = -1] )

Parameters

$hWnd Handle to the control
$iIndex [optional] Specifies the 0-based index of the string to select

Return Value

Success: True.
Failure: False.

Remarks

If $iIndex is –1, any current selection in the list is removed and the edit control is cleared.

If $iIndex is greater than the number of items in the list or if $iIndex is –1, the return value is -1 and the selection is cleared.

I read it, but as you can see in my quoted snipet it can be found. So:

and next time not only for 5 seconds, may be you can found such easy things too. You use GuiCtrlSetData and wondering about behavoir with your used control, why not read carefully helpfile or testing example to GUICtrlCreateCombo?

Hi,

Keep it civil please.

Unfortunately, it seems that the same names keep cropping up when I have to say that - perhaps those members should think about changing their behaviour a bit....

Melba fortunately for me this thread has finished its task and never replies to childish lecturing attempt and i'm thanks for every contribution , maybe because I'm an older man now lol. I wish you a good evening or whatever is your time zone.
