Two lines of code would go where you have the MsgBox(4096,"","You chose"

GUISetControlData($combo_1, $var) ;add data to list

GuiWrite($combo_1, 0, $var) ;optional--make new entry appear as selected item in combo

Thinking on making a little app that will hold program links and be able to add to the list .

So can click on the name in the combobox then click go to start the app .

I just want a simple toolbar that I can load programs to and click on it and have it run .like a drop down combo box . nothing fancy ..

click a button and add a link to the file so it will be listed in the dropdown .

Yeahhh, maybe...

1.) I changed it a little bit half an hour ago - please take a look at the trayicon, maybe it hangs/is waiting infinite in a "while-loop"

2.) please rename your old ini-file, cause the new would be like this:

[Application]
App1=C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe
App2=C:\WINDOWS\NOTEPAD.EXE
App3=C:\WINDOWS\system32\mspaint.exe

3.) what autoit-version do you use?

it would be much easier to just use toolbars in windows xp

just make a folder full of shorcuts to your favourite programs, then right click on your taskbar, choose new toolbar and select your folder with the shortcuts and voila.

u can further organize the folder by adding subfolders..

u might wanna ignore that folder...

btw, all the programs shown on that toolbar were bought with my hard earned money ... stealing is bad, dont download from the internet :ph34r:

@bob: I use an ini like this:

[Application]
Application1=C:\Windows\Notepad.exe
Desc1=Notepad

in my script then I use a function to read the parameters to an array before I fill the combobox with it:

...
Global $apparr[51][2]; -> max. 50 apps
...
IniToArray()
For $idx = 1 To $apparr[0][0]
   If $idx = 1 Then $combodefault = $apparr[$idx][1]
   $combolist = $combolist & $apparr[$idx][1] & "|"
Next
...
; now the combo-creation
$combo = GUISetControl("combo","",15,25,210,20,$CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
GUISetControlData(-1,$combolist,$combodefault)
...
Exit
...
Func IniToArray()
   Local $idx = 1
   $apparr[0][0] = 0
   While 1
      $app = IniRead($setupini,"Application","Application" & $idx,"")
      $desc = IniRead($setupini,"Application","Desc" & $idx,"")
      If $app = "" Then ExitLoop
      $apparr[0][0] = $idx
      $apparr[0][1] = $idx
      $apparr[$idx][0] = $app
      $apparr[$idx][1] = $desc
      $idx = $idx + 1
   WEnd
EndFunc

Hope that helps you a little bit.
