ControlSend ComboBox.

6 posts in this topic

When I do this, it does select the item, but it does not actually do anything with it other than put it into the box.

The items in the next box do not update, even though the pull down has changed.

Suggestions?

ControlFocus ( "Microsoft Dynamics GP", "Check Links", "ComboBox1")

ControlSend ( "Microsoft Dynamics GP", "Check Links", "ComboBox1", "{DOWN 2}{TAB}" )

ControlClick ( "Microsoft Dynamics GP", "Check Links", "&All >>", "left")

You might have to send an {ENTER} or a {SPACE} after the {DOWN 2}

I've tried Enter and Space. Enter hit's the OK, and space does the same thing as my Tab.

Larrys suggestion looks more realistic.

What is the equiv ControlCommand() that I need?

I did try showdropdown, and it shows, but how do I select item 2?

There may be a WM_SELECTCHANGE message that the app is expecting... try the ControlCommand() for changing combobox selection.

Okay, I tried this now. It'll open the box, select 2 (really 3, but that's fixable), but not actually select it. It's highlighted, but not selected.

Now the bad part, if I actually click on it after the script stops, it does not select it and update the listbox under it!

ControlFocus ( "Microsoft Dynamics GP", "Check Links", "ComboBox1")

ControlCommand ("Microsoft Dynamics GP", "Check Links", "ComboBox1", "ShowDropDown", "")

ControlCommand ("Microsoft Dynamics GP", "Check Links", "ComboBox1", "SetCurrentSelection", 2 )

There may be a WM_SELECTCHANGE message that the app is expecting... try the ControlCommand() for changing combobox selection.
