GUICtrlCreateCombo : how to limit the set of characters used ?

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

For this last year, i've got a noob question.

Not very familiar with GUICtrlCreateCombo in fact.

I want to make a combo that :

- only accepts alpha characters (no spaces, "!", "é" , ...) : to rephrase it, i wish i could set the choice of characters to use (as in wind*ws for the folders : "no / allowed")

- or : is only readable : i may set a set of choices A|B|C and the user cannot input D

thanks in advance.

There might be some way I don't know of, but I would detect the CBN_EDITUPDATE notification, then if the edit control of the combo has a character that is not allowed remove it. If you search for CBN_EDITUPDATE you might find examples to help.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI combo")
$com = GUICtrlCreateCombo ("Testing", 10,10)
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"Text with spaces|Text with spaces and number 2008|special char ® ë ©")
$test = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Test Combo-item", 10,50,150,25)
GUISetState ()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $test Then
    $read = GUICtrlRead ($com)
    If StringIsAlpha ($read) = 0 or StringIsASCII($read) = 0 Then
        MsgBox (-1, "info", "No Spaces or ASCII allowed")
    Else
        MsgBox (-1, "info", "You're Text Is OK")
    EndIf
    EndIf
