Multiple selection return value

9 posts in this topic

On a gui read while selecting multiple values in a list box it returns to me the values that are not selected. Any clue on why this is happening? :ph34r:

update it isn't that it returns the unselected items it is that it returns the last item clicked. I am going to try to use control command to get the selections.

Well that didn't work either it only gave me one value. How can I return the value of the multiple selections?

Ok, with GUI-commands I think it's not possible.

But maybe it's possible to modify the GUIRead()-function a little bit so that the return value could be a single- or multiline value.

Like in RegRead:

When reading a REG_MULTI_SZ key the multiple entries are seperated by @LF - use with StringSplit(..., @LF) to get each entry.

I try to test it in the later evening....

I tried running this wrapper and I get an error that on line 41 $LB_GETCOUNT is not declared but checking above it looks like you declared it just fine. Any thoughts?

Hi redndahead,

here is just a small example to show how I use the LB_GET...stuff for multiple selects.

$LBS_EXTENDEDSEL = 0x800
FileChangeDir(@ScriptDir)
GUICreate("Title", 220, 300)
$listbox1 = GuiSetControl ("list", "", 10,10,200,200,$LBS_EXTENDEDSEL)
GUISetControlData($listbox1,"Item1|Item2|Item3|Item4|Item5|Item6")

$OK = GUISetControl ("button", "OK", 10,200,100,20)
GuiSetControlNotify()
;-------------------------------------------------

GuiShow()
While GUIMsg() <> -3
$msg = GuiRead()

Select

case $msg = $OK

$LB_GETCOUNT = 0x0000018B
$LB_GETSELCOUNT = 0x00000190
$LB_GETSEL = 0x00000187
$LB_GETTEXT = 0x00000189

$n = GUISendMsg($listbox1, $LB_GETCOUNT ,0, 0);count all items
$n_sel = GUISendMsg($listbox1, $LB_GETSELCOUNT ,0, 0);count selected items

;-----------------------
If $n_sel > 0 Then

DIM $arr_sel_names[$n_sel]

$i_sel = 0
for $i = 0 to $n-1
$selected = GUISendMsg($listbox1, $LB_GETSEL ,$i, 1);get state of each item
IF $selected = 1 Then
$arr_sel_names[$i_sel] = GUIRecvMsg($listbox1, $LB_GETTEXT ,$i, 1);if state is 1 (Item selected) get name of item and put into array
$i_sel = $i_sel + 1
EndIf

Next
;-----------------------

;---Output---------------------
$output = ""
For $i = 0 to Ubound($arr_sel_names)-1
$output = $output & $arr_sel_names[$i] & @CRLF
Next
MsgBox (0, "Selected Items:", $output)


EndIf

;-------------------------------------------------------------

EndSelect
Wend

:ph34r: What version of AutoIt?

At least Arctor's example should work for you if mine doesn't

Nevermind. I found the UDF documentation at the end of the help file contents. Now working on the ADFunctions ADTools.au3, adapting it to allow me to change multiple users' properties while I'm waiting to upgrade to server 2003 in a year and a half...

Hi Arctor-

I tried running your sample code below, but many of the commands seem to be wrong. Is this written in AutoIT3 or is it pseudo code? For example I can't find any of these in the help files:

GuiSetControl, GuiSetControlData, GuiShow, GuiSendMsg, GuiRecvMsg....

Can you please translate?

Thanks!
