Get index of the item selected from list box

Recommended Posts


This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.

Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.

Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list
            local $index=0
            $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list
            ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================
            ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????
             For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items
                If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then
                    $index = $i
            ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR)

Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.

_GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.

Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.

Please advise and thanks

i dont see where you define $editionArray 

your comment says editionArray contains the total count of items, but i dont see in your script where you tell it that.

If @error Then
    MsgBox(262192, "", @ComputerName & " slaps " & @UserName & " around a bit with a large trout!")

@topgundcp You would help us in making a runable snippet of your code instead of showing us only a small part of the script.  You would get much more help that way.  Help us to help you...

Thank you guys.

As you can see I am quite new to this and this is my 2nd day learning Autoit so I am not familiar with all the functions available. Haven't done any programming in 15 years.

and thanks to @pixelsearch. I shall try and report back.

However, I play around and get it to work in a  dirty way by comparing the string in the Array and the text from the list, not really efficient though. and here's the code:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIListBox.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=J:\Autoit Projects\test.kxf
$TEST = GUICreate("TEST", 275, 310, -1, -1)
$Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 77, 240, 105, 33)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, 800, 0, "Arial Narrow")
$listEdition = GUICtrlCreateList("", 40, 48, 193, 160, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY,$LBS_EXTENDEDSEL,$WS_VSCROLL))
$LEdit = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Windows 10 Edition", 40, 24, 119, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000080)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

;================================ Start =======================================
#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

; Run(@ComSpec  & ' /c  dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:J:\BatchFiles\install.esd | find /i "Description" > ~A~_edition.txt', "",@SW_HIDE)
 ; Count no. of lines from text file to allocate Array size
Global $editionCount = _FileCountLines ( "~A~_edition.txt" )
Global $editionArray[$editionCount]
local $lines

_FileReadToArray("~A~_edition.txt", $editionArray)    ; and the rest is each line from text file
for $i=0 to UBound($editionArray) -1
    $editionArray[$i] = StringStripWS ( $editionArray[$i], $STR_STRIPLEADING + $STR_STRIPTRAILING)
$Lines = _ArrayToString($editionArray, "|", 1,Ubound($editionArray)-1, @CRLF)
$Lines = StringReplace($Lines, "Description : ", "",0)
;ConsoleWrite($Lines & @CR)
GuiCtrlSetData($ListEdition, $Lines)
$editionArray = StringSplit($Lines,"|",$STR_CHRSPLIT)
$editionCount = Ubound($editionArray)
;_ArrayDisplay($editionArray, "Edition " & $editionCount)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list
            local $index=0
            $item=GUICtrlRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list
            for $i=0 to Ubound($editionArray) - 1
                if StringCompare($item, $editionArray[$i]) = 0 Then
                    $index = $i
           ConsoleWrite( "Edition Selected: " & $Item & "  Index: " & $index &@CR)
            ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================
            ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????
             For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items
                If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then
                    $index = $i
        Case $exit

The content of the txt file getting from windows command, I commented out on top since I don't know if you have the Windows Installation media.:

Description : Windows 10 Home N

      Hi all,
      I'm developing a tool for exploratively testing another software. For that I wanna cover all the GUI functionality from that software and verify everything works as intended. But now I've a problem which I couldnt solve so far.
      One thing that software I'm testing does, is to load up either a single picture or a series of pictures. Depending on how much pictures got loaded, further actions will be proceeded...
      This loaded pictures are schon within a ToolbarWindow and they're clickable. What I need to know is, how much pictures are in this ToolbarWindow...
      Can anybody provide me a tip on how to achive this?
      Would be amazing!!

      Am trying to automate injecting credential on the login form for all kind of Web application for IE. I know how to identify the form name by viewing the source code and using the method - _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name).
      I would like to know how to identify or get the form object for the web app where there is no form name tag for example below, for the is I have used - _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) to get the form object.
      My Question is does it work for all kind of application "_IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0)" how to identify Index value? is it always 0? is there any better solution?
      The final solution am looking for is find out form object, get the username, password field and inject credential and submit the form.
      How to find out index value? for the forms which does not have form name field.
      $login_form = _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}") OR This works fine if the form has form name. $login_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}")

      Hello guys!
      I have a problem with a script, in the past I made a program and it worked perfect, I recently used it again and it already stands still in one step, the problem is a Javascript event that changed but now I cannot execute it.
      <td colspan="2" align="center"><input type="button" id="Buscar" name="Buscar" value="Buscar" onclick="javascript:enviarForma(document.obtenercasosPersonaPorDocumento,'0');" class="boton"></td>  
      Previously I used this code and it worked, but now it does nothing
      $botonconsulta = _IEGetObjByName($oIE,"Buscar") _IEAction($botonconsulta, 'click') _IELoadWait($oIE)  
      Now I have tried the following codes but none works.
      ;==================== 1 _IEHeadInsertEventScript($oIE, "document", "onclick", "javascript:enviarForma(document.obtenercasosPersonaPorDocumento,'0');") ControlClick("SUPER CELAC", "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]") _IELoadWait($oIE) ;==================== 2 $forma = $oIE.document.obtenercasosPersonaPorDocumento $oIE.Navigate("JavaScript:enviarForma("&$forma&",""0"");") _IELoadWait($oIE) ;==================== 3 $boton = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Buscar") $boton.document.parentwindow.execScript("enviarForma(document.obtenercasosPersonaPorDocumento,'0');", "javascript") I hope you can guide me, because I think the error is in the parameters that the javascript function receives but I don't know how to send it, here I leave the first part of the JavaScript function.
      function enviarForma(frm,tipoForma){ var bExisteDatoConsulta = false; var bError=true; var mensajeError=""; switch (tipoForma) { //--Forma documento case "0": if (validar_campo_no_vacio_no_print(frm.numeroDocumento)) { if (!isNum(frm.numeroDocumento.value)) { bError = false; mensajeError += "El número de documento debe ser un valor numérico\n"; } bExisteDatoConsulta = true; } else { mensajeError += "Debe digitar un número de documento\n"; } break;  Thanks!
