Pulling ListBox Entries

4 posts in this topic

Howdy all,

I'm stumped.

The script I'm writing is trying to process all the items in a list box.

I found a way to determine the total number of entries in the list box; however,

it would be nice to be able to capture the actual text for each entry in the listbox.

As far as I can tell none of the CommandControl functions will pull the text of the highlighted item. Neither does any "copy to clipboard" function or keystroke.

I will have no knowledge in advance of what entries will be in the list.

I was kind of hoping using the code below would get the currently highlighted item - but it doesn't.

$var = Controlcommand("Open Report", "", "ListBox1", "FindString", "")

MsgBox(0, "Text read was:", $var)

Suggestions ?

TIA

Read closer:

"GetCurrentSelection", "" Returns name of the currently selected item in a ListBox or ComboBox

Ok - I read closer and ......

IsVisible, "" (Returns 1 if Control is visible)

IsEnabled, "" (Returns 1 if Control is enabled)

ShowDropDown, "" (drops a ComboBox)

HideDropDown, "" (UNdrops a ComboBox)

AddString, "string" (adds a string to the end in a ListBox or ComboBox)

DelString, occurrence (deletes a string according to occurence in a ListBox or ComboBox)

FindString, "string" (returns occurence ref of the exact string in a ListBox or ComboBox)

SetCurrentSelection, occurrence (sets selection to occurrence ref in a ListBox or ComboBox)

SelectString, "string" (sets selection according to string in a ListBox or ComboBox)

IsChecked, "" (returns 1 if Button is checked)

Check, "" (Checks radio or check Button)

UnCheck, "" (Unchecks radio or rheck Button)

GetLineCount, "" (Returns # of lines in an Edit)

GetCurrentLine, "" (Returns the line # where the caret is of an Edit)

GetLine, line# (Returns text at line # passed of an Edit)

GetSelected, "" (Returns selected text of an Edit)

EditPaste, "string" (Pastes the 'string' at the Edit's caret position)

CurrentTab, "" (Returns the current Tab shown of a SysTabControl32)

TabRight, "" (Moves to the next tab to the right of a SysTabControl32)

TabLeft, "" (Moves to the next tab to the left of a SysTabControl32)

Where in this list from the help file is "GetCurrentSelection" ??

Thanks for your suggestion - it did work

Apparently it is missing from the (older) documentation you have. It is listed in the unstable build's documentation and has been for some time.
