Combobox - select item from known value

4 posts in this topic

Hi All,

i'm new on scripting and have the following situation i'd like to 'automate':

A form application where the user can fill in a path, select an item from a dropdown and browse the output folder.

My problems are:

I know the description of a dropdown item and would like to select the corresponding item.

Do i need to iterate/loop the items to achieve that? I know the item-number it can very because the list is dynamically created from files in a certain folder.

Another thing that i need to do is select a button which shows the browse folder dialog, but no path to set there,... how can i hack that?

Hope i described it well and hoping for a solution,

Jan

Look at ControlCommand() with its SelectString command

For button look at ControlClick()

All is in AutoIt helpFile.
