The best way to enter a predefined set of numbers is to use a Read-only combo box, and to add the needed numbers.

If you need it in an input box, then you can use something like this:

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 283, 45, 192, 124)
$hinp = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 13, 11, 248, 21)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

$htimer = TimerInit()

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

    If TimerDiff($htimer) > 1500 Then
        $input = GUICtrlRead($hinp)
        if Not(IsNumber($input)) then GUICtrlSetData($hinp,1)
        If $input < 1 Or $input > 10 Then           
            GUICtrlSetData($hinp, (Mod($input, 9)+1))
        $htimer = TimerInit()

Immagine.jpg.04a5044a9fd7636be586e26998043b6b.jpgA number from 1 to 10 is typed in the third box. This number will activate an action of the program with 10 different variables, so if I write 3, the number 3 will have to be chosen from the ten options.
I hope I was clear, I was getting confused while writing :)

I knew that already, but my comments are not about the chosen words but rather you are bumping you thread in the hope you get faster help, which is considered impolite and against out forum etiquettes.

This is a good use case for a combobox, leaving only a limited number of choices. Also you can give options 1, 2, 3, ..., 10 more explicit "names" (plain text).

It may be but I don't understand how it works and therefore I can't implement it in my little program. I need that typing a number in the input box, the program goes to read that number, and use the corresponding variable, so if I write 3 it chooses the variable 3, without writing any message.
Thanks for your patience and availability.

Here is an example with Combo box;

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate('', 120, 40)
GUICtrlCreateCombo('', 10, 10, 100, 200, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL))

For $i = 1 To 10                ;Enter the predefined numbers into the combo box
GUICtrlSetData(-1, '1')         ;Set the 1st entry to 1


While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
