Get Menu Text while using CtrlSetOnEvent?

7 posts in this topic

I know I've done this before but for the life of me I can't recall what I need to use the get the text of a menu item when it is clicked.

 

#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
#include <GuiMenu.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include 'CommMG.au3' ;;; Thanks to Martin Gibson for the UDF

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Dim $COMList[100]

$portlist = _CommListPorts(0);find the available COM ports and write them into the ports combo
If @error = 1 Then
    MsgBox(0, 'trouble getting portlist', 'Program will terminate!')
    Exit
EndIf

GUICreate("Test", 700, 500)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")

Local $COMmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("COM List")

For $pl = 1 To $portlist[0]
    $portnum = StringReplace($portlist[$pl], "COM", '')
    If StringLen($portnum) = 1 Then $portnum = ' ' & $portnum
    $portlist[$pl] = 'COM' & $portnum
    $COMList[$pl] = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem($portlist[$pl], $COMmenu)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_SelectCOM")
Next

GUISetState()

Func _SelectCOM()
    $Msg = @GUI_CtrlId
    MsgBox(0, "Test", $Msg)
EndFunc   ;==>_SelectCOM

Func _Exit()
    _Commcloseport(True)
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

 

So I need to get the text of the menu item when it is clicked so I can Check/Uncheck the rest / use the text later in the script.

 

Thanks!

But he script's in GuiOnEvenMode.

@Damein: please attach the #include 'CommMG.au3' ;;; Thanks to Martin Gibson for the UDF

i'am sure: what's possible in GuiGeMsg.Mode is also possible in GuiOnEvenMode.

And GUICtrlRead should be able to read from the ControlID returned by @GUI_CtrlId.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Those two are unrelated to each other.

He's in OnEvent mode and he can use GUICtrlRead with the variable $Msg which is populated by @GUI_CtrlID, so your statement mentioning that he was in OnEvent mode made no sense in the context of your quote.
