ComboBox

7 posts in this topic

Let's say I have 10 combobox and 10 items in each.

1- If one item in a combobox is selected, I don't want it to be selectable in another combobox. (Or if it is, remove the duplicate one)

2- When I click on button, I want 10 msgboxes to show, and each item showing in each msgbox in order they are selected. (from combobox1 to combobox10)

I'm confused whether to use select or switch or other loops.

SaeidN,

You might find this thread of interest. If you produce some runnable code to illustrate what you want to do I would be happy to develop something along those lines for you.

Thank you, that was a good guide. This code is a good one, but I don't want to be removed from the list, I want when a duplicate option is selected, the old one to get unselected from combobox.

I have this code. When I click the button, I want the selected items to run in order they are selected. I have a number from 1 to 9 in front of each, which means wait for 1-9 sec, then run the next one.

I appreciate your help

I want when a duplicate option is selected, the old one to get unselected from combobox

Is this the behaviour you wish to see - any previous selections of the same app or order are cleared:

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

#include <Array.au3>

Global $iCount = 5

Global $sCombo_Data = "|Notepad|Paint|Calc|IE|AutoIt" ; Note use of leading "|" so that previous loads are cleared
Global $sCombo_Order = "|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9"
Global $aCombo_App[$iCount], $aCombo_Place[$iCount]
Global $iStyle = BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL)


$Form1 = GUICreate("RunProgs", 373, 283, 192, 124)

For $i = 0 To $iCount - 1
    $aCombo_App[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 24, 40 + (32 * $i), 145, 25, $iStyle)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sCombo_Data)
    $aCombo_Place[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 200, 40 + (32 * $i), 145, 25, $iStyle)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sCombo_Order)
Next

$RunBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run selected in order", 112, 216, 131, 41)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

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

        Case Else
            For $i = 0 To $iCount -1
                ; Check if App combo
                If $nMsg = $aCombo_App[$i] Then
                    ; Recent app selection
                    $sChosen = GUICtrlRead($nMsg)
                    ; Now check all other combos and clear them if the same thing selected
                    For $j = 0 To $iCount - 1
                        If $j = $i Then
                            ; Do nothing
                        Else
                            ; Same content as recent selection
                            If GUICtrlRead($aCombo_App[$j]) = $sChosen Then
                                ; Clear the current combo selection
                                GUICtrlSetData($aCombo_App[$j], $sCombo_Data)
                            EndIf
                        EndIf
                    Next
                ElseIf $nMsg = $aCombo_Place[$i] Then
                    ; Recent order selection
                    $sChosen = GUICtrlRead($nMsg)
                    ; Now check all other combos and clear them if the same thing selected
                    For $j = 0 To $iCount - 1
                        If $j = $i Then
                            ; Do nothing
                        Else
                            ; Same content as recent selection
                            If GUICtrlRead($aCombo_Place[$j]) = $sChosen Then
                                ; Clear the current combo selection
                                GUICtrlSetData($aCombo_Place[$j], $sCombo_Order)
                            EndIf
                        EndIf
                    Next
                EndIf
            Next

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Or do you mean that once an option is chosen it is removed from the other combos options?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $aCombo_App[$iCount], $aCombo_Place[$iCount], $aCombo_App_Data[$iCount], $aCombo_Place_Data[$iCount]
Global $iStyle = BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL)

For $i = 0 To $iCount - 1
    $aCombo_App_Data[$i] = $sCombo_Data
    $aCombo_Place_Data[$i] = $sCombo_Order
Next

$Form1 = GUICreate("RunProgs", 373, 283, 192, 124)

The first one is exacty what I want. Thank you.

How can I get the Run button to work? Should I use switch? Cause I want all selected programs to run with the defined sleep between them.

SaeidN,

When you reply, please use the "Reply to this topic" button at the top of the thread or the "Reply to this topic" editor at the bottom rather than the "Quote" button - I know what I wrote and it just pads the thread unnecessarily.

As to the "Run" button - what have you tried that has not worked? I would have thought a loop would have been the way to go rather then a Switch, but then you know best what you want.

Sorry about quote.

Edit: Ok, I did it, is it an efficiet way of doing it? Or there is a better way? I just wrote it for two of the apps for now.

$z= 0
            While $z < 5

                If GUICtrlRead($aCombo_App[$z]) = "Calc" Then
                    Run ("calc.exe")
                    Sleep (GUICtrlRead($aCombo_Place[$z]) * 1000)
                EndIf

                If GUICtrlRead($aCombo_App[$z]) = "Notepad" Then
                    Run ("notepad.exe")
                    Sleep (GUICtrlRead($aCombo_Place[$z]) * 1000)
                EndIf
                $z= $z+1
            WEnd

Edit 2: I removed the following part, cause it's a sleep time and ok to duplicate in boxes.

ElseIf $nMsg = $aCombo_Place[$i] Then
                    ; Recent order selection
                    $sChosen = GUICtrlRead($nMsg)
                    ; Now check all other combos and clear them if the same thing selected
                    For $j = 0 To $iCount - 1
                        If $j = $i Then
                            ; Do nothing
                        Else
                            ; Same content as recent selection
                            If GUICtrlRead($aCombo_Place[$j]) = $sChosen Then
                                ; Clear the current combo selection
                                GUICtrlSetData($aCombo_Place[$j], $sCombo_Order)
                            EndIf
                        EndIf
                    Next

      Good morning
      I'm working on a little project, and I was wondering if there's a way ( sure there is ) to insert data to a ComboBox control everytime the user insert some text in the ComboBox which is not in the ComboBox data. I'll try to explain with an example:
      - Form with some data ( ComboBox is empty );
      - User prompt something in the ComboBox: if what the user prompts is not in the ComboBox values ( at the moment empty ), then insert the value in the ComboBox values, in order to have, next time the user prompts the form, the value that he entered.
      More pratical example:
      - First call of the form, ComboBox empty;
      - I prompt "A" in the ComboBox;
      - Second call, in the ComboBox I should see "A";
      - I prompt "B" in the ComboBox;
      - Third call, I should see "A"
                                                 "B";
      - And so on...
      Everytime the form is called, I re-create it, so I think I can't use _GUICtrlComboBox_AddStrings().
      I tried with
      Global $strCboStrings = "" ; When the user prompt the form, the code below is executed. ; I.E. : User prompt "A", after the if I should have "A"; ; In the second call, If I write "B", I should see "A" ; "B"; ; If I write "A" again, in the combobox values should not be any changes. If Not StringInStr($strCboStrings, GUICtrlRead($cboVoiceCategory)) <> 0 Then $strCboStrings &= $strCboStrings & "|" & GUICtrlRead($cboVoiceCategory) EndIf Any suggestion?
      Thanks

      Good evening guys
      I am working on a little project, in which I have to retrieve 8000+ rows of data from a table, from a SQLite database, to populate a combobox 
      This is what I tried 'til now, but it still takes about 12 seconds to populate the combobox.
      _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "BEGIN TRANSACTION;") If _SQLite_GetTable($objDatabase, "SELECT DISTINCT Comune FROM LISTA_COMUNI;", $arrRisultatoQuery, $intRighe, $intColonne) = $SQLITE_OK Then For $i = 2 To UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 If $i < UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 Then GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i] & "|") Else GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i]) EndIf Next _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "COMMIT;") Are there any other solution to retrieve 8000+ records from a SQLite database?
      Thank you very much

      Hello,
      I have searched everywhere but on the forum there isn't an example of a combobox with checkbox. I think is a very useful control but require subclassing. Several example in C++, one of this:
      CheckComboBox Control
      If somone has some time to check it out. If need i can provide the source code. Thanks
