Displaying a specific item in a Combo box

Recommended Posts


I've filled 2 combo boxes with 32 items, and now I want to display first item in one box, and the last item in the other box.

After filling the combos, nothing is displayed in either box.

Would someone point to to an example of how to do this, or at least the API's?

maybe this

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

GUICreate("MY GUI")

$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select", 10, 50, 50, 20)
$Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 60, 50, 50, 20)
$Label_4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 400, 30)
GUICtrlSetFont($Label_4, 12)
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 56, 250, 161, 21)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "_IEFormGetCount(|_IEFormGetCollection(|_IEFormGetObjByIndex(|_IEFormGetObjByName(|_IEFormGetNameByIndex(|_IEFormElementGetCount(|_IEFormElementGetCollection(|" & _
$Combo2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 56, 200, 161, 21)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "www.google.com|www.spamit.com|www.xpclenmenu.hostrocket.com|www.autoit3.com")

ControlSetText("MY GUI", "", $Combo1, "_IECreate(")
ControlSetText("MY GUI", "", $Combo2, "www.howdy.com")

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Case $msg = $Button_1
            GUICtrlSetData($Label_4, (GUICtrlRead($combo1)) & " " & (GUICtrlRead($combo2)) & " )")
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $Button_2

Thanks for the reply

Something seems a littel strange here.

There's got to be a shorter way to dispaly a specific item in a combo box.

In VB I can do this in 2 lines of code.
