[SOLVED] Retrieve control text from array

Recommended Posts

pintas

I'm using MetroGUI UDF from BBs19 to make a nice script, but i cannot relate the control content to the control itself.

I can find the ID (and even handle) but i can't get the content.

The INI file is as follows:

[Micro0001]
Value0=B
Value1=1
Value2=1

[Micro0002]
Value0=B
Value1=1
Value2=1

[Micro0003]
Value0=E
Value1=1
Value2=1

[Micro0004]
Value0=B
Value1=1
Value2=1

[Micro0005]
Value0=F
Value1=1
Value2=1

I'm trying to show the buttons text when i press the button, but i can't seem to find a way to do it.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Also (another matter) is there a place where i can take a course of AutoIt? I seem to use it every now and then but never have the time to practice extensively...

What do you mean by the Content?


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.

Oh, sorry... I meant the text in the buttons, that is taken from the INI file.

In a normal button, one can easily take the text from the button, but in these 'picture' buttons, and although it uses the text to create the buttons, it's using an array, and i can't set it to show a msgbox with the button text when i click on it.

Edit: I changed the title.

You need to use GuiCtrlRead to get the value of the button in your MsgBox

GuiCtrlRead($aButiD[$INDEX1])

Hi.

Thanks for your reply.

That unfortunately doesn't work. When i use the AU3 Info tool over a button, value 'Text' is empty because these buttons are actually pictures. Somehow i need to relate the array column to the control ID, or to attribute a text to the image button, which sounds more difficult.

When you set the text on the button, you should be able to know what you set it to shouldn't you? You have to code what to put in it during creation, or even during an update to the text, so just access that.

The buttons are created according to SectionNames in an INI file generated by another script.

I need to display the whole Section Name values.
For example, i want to display the following values from the Section Name Micro0002:

Value0=B
Value1=1
Value2=1

The problem is that the Section Names are dynamic, and could be anything. If they were fixed, i could find a way around it, but they are computer names that vary.

If i can get the name 'Micro0002' (in this case), i could display the respective section from the INI file.

I already have the correct id ($INDEX1) but i need to relate it to the respective array column.

I tried something like _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Value: " & $INDEX1 +1, 250)

SOLVED! I was writing this and i found _ArrayToString. I just did this and it was solved:

_Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Value: " & _ArrayToString($aArray, @TAB, $INDEX1, $INDEX1), 250)

Thank you so much for your help guys!
