Is there a way to sort a combo box contents.. Via numbers or letters ???

Using the GUICtrlCreateCombo() "style" parameter, $CBS_SORT


- 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]

I thought that worked only if its being typed in... Sorry should have been more specific. It's being queried from an SQL database and sent to it...

Should still work, I think.

Anyway, can't you add a Order By parameter to your sql SELECT query?

I'm running into a similar situation. I'm using logparser to populate the combo box. I'm already using an Order By in the LogParser query, but it's case sensitive. The $CBS_SORT doesn't work. As stated before, that will only work for ones you type into the drop down.

Any other suggestions? I haven't been able to get Log Parser to be case insenstive when sorting.

Hi,

Why not load the returned values into an array and then sort the array (_ArraySort). Getting the array into the combo is trivial:

For $i = 1 To $aList[0]
    $sList &= $aList[$i] & "|"
Next

$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo (...)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sList, "")

I was hoping to avoid that extra step, but that sounds like the way to go. Thanks.
