How to set a value of combobox

9 posts in this topic

I am coding a script to automate an operation for application. During the operation, I will select a item from a .net combobox control. The the code likes below. But seems not work.

ControlCommand("WinTitle","WinText","WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app31","SelectString", "LA")

There should be no problem for the recognization of the control as when I used the command parameter "ShowDropDown". The dropdown list is shown.

Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong here? Or is there any other solutions?

As that combobox is not created by GuiCtrlCreate, I think I can not use any function in GuiCombobox.au3, right?

Run($appDir & "adminTool.exe")

; ====================================================

; Login

WinWaitActive("Login - Admin Tools","Version")

ControlSetText("Login - Admin Tools","Version","WindowsForms10.EDIT.app31","aaa")

ControlSetText("Login - Admin Tools","Version","WindowsForms10.EDIT.app32","aaa")

ControlClick("Login - Admin Tools","Version","WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app31")

You might want to take a look at 'ControlCommand', and ShowDropDown.

I tried the code below:

ControlCommand("HindSight Registration","Company Information","WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app31","ShowDropDown", "")

But it only dropdown the list of that combobox, not select an item. :lmao:

The code below does not work either.

ControlCommand("HindSight Registration","Company Information","WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app31","ShowDropDown", "LA").

Is there any other ways?

Im taking a HUGE guess :

ControlCommand("HindSight Registration","","WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app31","ShowDropDown", "LA").

If it doesn't work, im not suprised.
