How to transpose .ini values into a combobox

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to make a combo box have its values read from a .ini file...

$menu1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Combo4", 96, 304, 97, 25)

GUICtrlSetData(-1,"|1|2|3|,"Value 1")

Instead of having 1 2 and 3 written in the script, how can I have those values be read from a .ini file where these same values would be written... How much I format the .ini file ?

Here is a quick example:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiComboBox.au3>

$hForm = GUICreate("Combo INI Example", 227, 111, 275, 328)
$oCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 16, 32, 193, 25)
$oLoad = GUICtrlCreateButton("Load", 16, 72, 97, 25, 0)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $oLoad

Func _LoadValues()
    Local $aValues
    If Not FileExists(@ScriptDir & "\Example.ini") Then ; create ini if it doesnt exist
        IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\Example.ini", "Main Section", "Fruit", "Apple")
        IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\Example.ini", "Main Section", "Vegetable", "Pickle")
        IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\Example.ini", "Main Section", "Color", "Blue")
        IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\Example.ini", "Main Section", "Car", "Nissan")
    $aValues = IniReadSection(@ScriptDir & "\Example.ini", "Main Section")
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aValues) - 1
        _GUICtrlComboBox_AddString($oCombo, $aValues[$i][1])
EndFunc   ;==>_LoadValues
