[SOLVED]Remove specific combo value.

Recommended Posts


The combo content below are the files from a network folder.

I also have a button that moves the combo selected entry (file) to another place, and then i need to update the combo to remove that particular entry.

I've tried updating the combo values, and even deleting the combo and creating it again, but it picks up the same values as before, no matter what i do...

The entries (file names) are not always the same, so i can't know the index of the file in the combo to properly remove it. So _GUICtrlComboBox_DeleteString doesn't help.

Any ideas on how i can do this?

$Pasta = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Selecionar", 8, 16, 153, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
Global $arquivo = _FileListToArray('\\\Dir\')
Func PopularPasta()
    For $i = 1 To UBound($arquivo) - 1
        GUICtrlSetData($Pasta, $arquivo[$i])

This simple example works for me:

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

Global $aList[5] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

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

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 8, 16, 153, 25) ; The required styles are included by default



While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $cCombo


Func _ActionCombo($sChoice)

    ; Get index of choice in array
    $iIndex = _ArraySearch($aList, $sChoice)
    ; And delete it
    _ArrayDelete($aList, $iIndex)
    ; Refill combo

    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Combo reloaded", "You selected " & $sChoice & @CRLF & " which has now been removed from the combo")


Func _FillCombo()

    $sData = ""
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aList) - 1
        $sData &= "|" & $aList[$i]
    GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, $sData)


Much easier to work with the original array rather than the combo.

Fantastic, Thank you.

However, if i replace the:

Global $aList[5] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]


Global $aList = _FileListToArray('\\\Dir\')

I get the item count in the first combo position.

I can use _ArrayDelete($aList, 0) and it will work the first time i run the gui, but after it deletes the selected combo value and refreshes, some items are missing from the combo. I'm not sure why this happens.

Nevermind. Got it working... :)
