GUI Combo Box

4 posts in this topic

I have a GUI which allows the user to choose what state they want, but I would like them to be able to use just the keyboard to select the variable, instead of clicking on the combo box value. This is what I am currently using:

$Label_15 = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("State:", 30, 380, 140, 20)
$state = GuiCtrlCreateCombo("", 30, 400, 80, 21)
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"Alabama|Alaska|Arizona|Arkansas|California|Colorado|Connecticut|District of Columbia|Delaware|Florida|Georgia|Hawaii|Idaho|Illinois|Indiana|Iowa|Kansas|Kentucky|Louisiana|Maine

|Maryland|Massachusetts|Michigan|Minnesota|Mississippi|Missouri|Montana|Nebraska|Nevada|New Hampshire|New Jersey|New Mexico|New York|North Carolina|North Dakota|Ohio|Oklahoma|Oregon|Pennsylvania|Rhode Island|South Carolina|South Dakota|Tennessee|Texas|Utah|Vermont|Virginia|Washington|West Virginia|Wisconsin|Wyoming","")

What I am hoping for is when the user tabs to the combo box, they can hit the i key and it jumps to Idaho, hit i again and it jumps to Illinois....etc.

Thanks.
