@SW_DISABLE = Disables the window

@SW_ENABLE = Enables the window

So

GUISetState(@SW_Disable)
   do whatever
GUISetState(@SW_Enable)

Your right because the window is disabled so it won't accept the input. Try posting the GUI portion of your code as well as the MsgLoop (or at least enough to replicate the issue).

If $nMsg = $Button2 Then

;msgbox(0,"Update in Progress.","Please wait while the Database is being updated.")

GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE)

;msgbox(0,"update","")

GUICtrlSetData($Combo1, "")

Call("update") ; Query

GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE)

Else

EndIf

I would say No bug. We would have to see more code to say exactly why though.

I'd say that if it's part of your own gui, then use the GuiCtrlSetState() function with $GUI_DISABLE and $GUI_ENABLE, otherwise use ControlDisable() to disable/enable the control/form. :D
