Problem with _GUICtrlComboGetLBText

Recommended Posts

martin

The text returned by _GUICtrlComboGetLBText is only the first letter if the variable name for the combobox is passed as a parameter, but is correct if the windows handle is passed.

Looks like a bug to me. Can anyone confirm?

Here is an example of problem seen with version beta 3.2.3.6

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GUICombo.au3>
dim $s_text
GUICreate("My GUI combo"); will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$CB = GUICtrlCreateCombo ("item1", 10,10); create first item
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"item2|item3","item3"); add other item snd set a new default
$b1 = GUICtrlCreateButton('show item 2 text ',20,50)
$b2 = GUICtrlCreateButton('show item 2 text (using HWND)',20,80)
GUISetState ()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    if $msg = $B1 Then
    _GUICtrlComboGetLBText($CB, 1, $s_text) 
    MsgBox(0,'2nd item is',$s_text)
    EndIf
    
    if $msg = $B2 Then
    _GUICtrlComboGetLBText(GUICtrlGetHandle($CB), 1, $s_text)   
    MsgBox(0,'2nd item is',$s_text)
    EndIf
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
Wend

Edit - correct typo

I believe that this has already been reported and fixed for next release. Check the Bugs forum for gafrost's posts.

Yes thanks PauliA; I should have looked there first.
