Combobox - enter to start function

Recommended Posts

I will provide code if necessary, just let me know.

The problem is... i have a dropdown menu with a list of programs.

I want the user to be able hit enter after he types something in and that to start a function.

I know i could do this with a simple hotkey... but I do not want it done all the time, only when the user is using the dropdown menu..

well..... if you don't understand what i'm describing then I will try and make up some example code.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI combo")  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

GUICtrlCreateCombo ("item1", 10,10) ; create first item
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"item2|item3","item3") ; add other item snd set a new default
$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 40, 75, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetState($btn, $GUI_DEFBUTTON)

GUISetState ()

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $btn
            MsgBox(0,"OK", "Button or Enter Pressed")

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
