Combo initialization problem

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I've got two combos- both get initialized in the same for loop, with the "Bank1"

all the way up to "Bank32"

I want one combo to start at Bank1, the other to start at Bank32.

After intializing both combos, I call

GUICtrlSetData($Combo_StartingBank, "Bank1", "Bank1")

GUICtrlSetData($Combo_EndingBank, "Bank32", "Bank32")

The contents for Combo_StartingBank is "Bank1"... "Bank32". All is ok.

The contents for Combo_EndingBank is "Bank3"... "Bank34". How did the contents get modified?

In both cases, they both contain 32 items.

Well without the code, you have us doing a guessing game. Nothing with what your provided can anyone tell you what you did (Without guessing).

So a guess:

Dim $ComboInfo1, $ComboInfo2

For $i = 1 To 32
    $ComboInfo1 = $ComboInfo1 & 'Bank' & $i & '|'
Next

For $x = 33 To 64
    $ComboInfo2 = $ComboInfo2 & 'Bank' & $x & '|'
Next

GUICtrlSetData($Combo_StartingBank, $ComboInfo1, "Bank1")
GUICtrlSetData($Combo_EndingBank, $ComboInfo2, "Bank33")

EDIT

Decided to provide an example because, the height of the combo box may be your issue, and again I'm guessing.

#include <guiconstants.au3>

Dim $ComboInfo1, $ComboInfo2
GUICreate('', 200, 100)
$Combo_StartingBank = GUICtrlCreateCombo('', 10, 10, 180, $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
$Combo_EndingBank = GUICtrlCreateCombo('', 10, 30, 180, $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

For $i = 1 To 32
    $ComboInfo1 = $ComboInfo1 & 'Bank' & $i & '|'
Next

For $x = 33 To 64
    $ComboInfo2 = $ComboInfo2 & 'Bank' & $x & '|'
Next

GUICtrlSetData($Combo_StartingBank, $ComboInfo1, "Bank1")
GUICtrlSetData($Combo_EndingBank, $ComboInfo2, "Bank33")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

This is pretty much what I'm doing, except the second for loop is from 1-32 also.

I will try post my code tonight, when I get home from work.

Both combos should contain the same constants, bit one should bave Bank1 for the default, the other should have Bank32 for the default.

The GuiCtrlSetData() calls seem to be causing a problem on my system.

THanks!

OK, heres what I have

$Combo_StartingBank = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 0, 0, 0, 0, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

$Combo_StartingBankLeft = $GroupLeft + 45

GUICtrlSetPos($Combo_StartingBank, $Combo_StartingBankLeft, $GroupTop + 145, 65, 70)

$Combo_EndingBank = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 0, 0, 0, 0, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

GUICtrlSetPos($Combo_EndingBank, $Combo_StartingBankLeft + 125, $GroupTop + 145, 65, 70)

InitializeComboBoxes($Combo_StartingBank, $Combo_EndingBank, 32)

_GUICtrlComboSetMinVisible ($Combo_StartingBank, 32)

_GUICtrlComboSetMinVisible ($Combo_EndingBank, 32)

GUICtrlSetData($Combo_StartingBank, "Bank1", "Bank1")

GUICtrlSetData($Combo_EndingBank, "Bank32", "Bank32")

Here is InitializeComboBoxes()

Func InitializeComboBoxes($Combo1, $Combo2, $MaxItem)

Local $CurrIdx

For $CurrIndex = 0 To $MaxItem

GUICtrlSetData($Combo1, "Bank" & String($CurrIndex + 1) & "|")

GUICtrlSetData($Combo2, "Bank" & String($CurrIndex + 1) & "|")

Next

Ok. Here's how I got it to work, after I saw how you were using GuiGetCtrlData()

Man are these API's wierd

$Combo_StartingBank = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 0, 0, 0, 0, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

$Combo_StartingBankLeft = $GroupLeft + 45

GUICtrlSetPos($Combo_StartingBank, $Combo_StartingBankLeft, $GroupTop + 145, 65, 70)

$Combo_EndingBank = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 0, 0, 0, 0, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

GUICtrlSetPos($Combo_EndingBank, $Combo_StartingBankLeft + 125, $GroupTop + 145, 65, 70)

$ComboInitStr = InitializeComboBoxes($ComboInitStr, 32)

_GUICtrlComboSetMinVisible ($Combo_StartingBank, 32) ; needed to allocate > 30 items in a combo

_GUICtrlComboSetMinVisible ($Combo_EndingBank, 32) ; needed to allocate > 30 items in a combo

GUICtrlSetData($Combo_StartingBank, $ComboInitStr, "Bank1")

GUICtrlSetData($Combo_EndingBank, $ComboInitStr, "Bank32")

Func InitializeComboBoxes($InitStr, $MaxItem)

Local $CurrIdx

$InitStr=""

For $CurrIndex = 1 To $MaxItem

$InitStr = $InitStr & "Bank" & String($CurrIndex) & "|"

Next

Return( $InitStr )

EndFunc ;==>InitializeComboBoxes
