Help with guictrlsetdata

4 posts in this topic

ok i have been using autoit to help with some automation processes and i have hit a block here.

i am trying to use the guictrlsetdata to populate a drop down list that shows 3 different variables (not the names but the value that the variable contains)

i have tried lots of different ways to get this done and generally this will work with constants:

GUICtrlSetData(-2,"Z|Q|S|X", "X")

but how would you do this with variables? like this:

guictrlsetdata(-1, $nextyear|$lastyear, $lastyear)

this gives an error about not able to parse the line

any ideas?

guictrlsetdata(-1, $nextyear & "|" & $lastyear, $lastyear)

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

Additionally, if you were trying to populate the dropdown with the contents of an array, I've got an example -> here.

- MoChr(77)& Chr(97)& Chr(100)& Chr(101)& Chr(32)& Chr(121)& Chr(97)& Chr(32)& Chr(108)& Chr(111)& Chr(111)& Chr(107)-------I've told you 100,000 times not to exaggerate!-------Don't make me hit you with my cigarette hand...-------My scripts:Random Episode Selector, Keyboard MouseMover, CopyPath v2.1, SmartRename for XP,Window Tracer[sup]New![/sup]
