Need help to handle some combo

Recommended Posts


Hey guys,

I'm currently working on this little program that helps people at my work make IT requests, everything is working nice and pollished except for one error handelling I can't seem to figure out.


I have 2 combo box

    $CBDebut = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 312, 112, 137, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "8:00|8:30|9:00|9:30|10:00|10:30|11:00|11:30|12:00|12:30|13:00|13:30|14:00|14:30|15:00|15:30|16:00|16:30|17:00|17:30", "8:00")
    $CBFin = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 312, 176, 137, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "8:00|8:30|9:00|9:30|10:00|10:30|11:00|11:30|12:00|12:30|13:00|13:30|14:00|14:30|15:00|15:30|16:00|16:30|17:00|17:30", "12:00")

So the goal with this is people can reserve our conference rooms, but If they select 10:00 on $CBDebut and 9:00 on $CBFin it sould give me an error since they can only schedule the room for 1 day at a time, so I need to make sure that the first combo is always smaller then the second one. but since its not numerical value I can't figure it out.


If the :30 cauz a problem I could remove them, but I would like for it to say.


Thank you guys for the help!

I would do something like this:

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

#include <GuiComboBox.au3>

$sList = "8:00|8:30|9:00|9:30|10:00|10:30|11:00|11:30|12:00|12:30|13:00|13:30|14:00|14:30|15:00|15:30|16:00|16:30|17:00|17:30"

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

$CBDebut = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 137, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sList, "8:00")
$CBFin = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 50, 137, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sList, "12:00")

$cRead = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read", 10, 100, 80, 30)


While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $cRead
            $iIndex_Debut = _GUICtrlComboBox_FindString($CBDebut, GUICtrlRead($CBDebut))
            $iIndex_Fin = _GUICtrlComboBox_FindString($CBFin, GUICtrlRead($CBFin))

            If $iIndex_Debut < $iIndex_Fin Then
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Booking", "Accepted")
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "End must be after start")


As long as the 2 combos have identical contents this will work.
