Advanced Input Box


Recommended Posts

Very good, thanks for sharing.

I have always thought I should do something with my two Dialog programs, to combine them as one, with added features to be fully featured.

Currently I have one program that creates a MsgBox, providing all the options for the standard AutoIt variations. It has a preview option of course, as well as an option to create a simple error dialog with one click. The other program is a viewer (and text editor), for when you may want to change or preview textual changes of a MsgBox. It will import the settings and export them, but currently doesn't provide a dynamic way to change anything other than typing (plus copy & paste) the text.

That said, maybe someone has already done that here .... I've not looked in a good long while, and no longer keep tabs on the Examples section like I once used to.

Make sure brain is in gear before opening mouth!

This is really one of the best libraries in whole forum, I think.


There is just one mistake, in my opinion:
In line 464 of , I would await

                $vTmp = __advInputBox_objGet($aControls[$i], "selected", -1)    ; "selected" instead of "value"

Hi and thanks :)

See documentation of combo field

  type:  "combo"
  id:    "name" (must be unique, without spaces)
  label: "label text"

  options: ["option0", "option1" ...]
  value: 0|1|...|N OR "option0"|"option1"|...|"optionN"

  style, exstyle, color, bkcolor, font
  labelStyle, labelExStyle, labelColor, labelBkColor, labelFont

I named it "value" (not "selected"). This is to be consistent with other fields.

Same thing for list field.

Yeaaaah, but.....
Using "value" (and the corresponding original line 464 in your code) seems to ADD e.g. the string "0" to the list and selects it.... 😐

Changing your code to "selected" seems to work as expected - at least for me!

Or do I use an old version of your library? I will check this...


Thanks for your quick response,

Changing your example 2 shows what I mean:

; All controls
Func Example2()
;    Local $sJSON = '{ title:"Showcase" font:[10, 600, 0, "Calibri"] controls:[' & _
    Local $sJSON = '{ title:"Showcase" controls:[' & _
        '{type:"label", text:"Enter you personal informations (please :p)"},' & _
        '{type:"input", id:"firstname", label:"First name"},' & _
        '{type:"input", id:"lastname", label:"Last name"},' & _
        '{type:"combo", id:"sex", label:"Sex", options:["Male", "Female"], value:0 selected:-1},' & _ ; selected = 0 for male, = 1 for female ; or you can use the exact same string as in options "Male" or "Female"
        '{type:"date", id:"dob", label:"Date of birth", value:"2020/01/01", style:0},' & _ ; $DTS_SHORTDATEFORMAT
        '{type:"separator"},' & _
        '{type:"edit", id:"address", label:"Address", lines:5},' & _
        '{type:"list", id:"options", label:"Options", options:["First", "Second", "Third"], selected:["First"]}' & _
        '{type:"label" text:"I agree to share my personnal informations with big brother:"}' & _
        '{type:"check", id:"agree", label:"Yes", value:true}' & _

    Local $oRet = advInputBox($sJSON)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(64, "Example1", "Dialog canceled")
        MsgBox(64, "Example1", "Return: " & Json_Encode($oRet, 128))

I guessed "value" being an error because you used "selected" there, but it didn't work.
