combo box text arrives "activated"

3 posts in this topic

Cannot find any info on this: When my script creates a GUI with a combo box, the default text visible in the combo box arrives "activated" (i.e. highlighted blue).

I want to change this so that when the GUI arrives, the combo box text is NOT highlighted blue (or any other color).

Possible ???

Just move the focus to something else. Here is the example from help with a label added which is just to do what you want (I think).

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI combo"); will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

GUICtrlCreateCombo ("item1", 10,10); create first item
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"item2|item3","item3"); add other item snd set a new default

$l = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",0,0,1,1)

GUISetState ()

GUICtrlSetState($l,$GUI_FOCUS);set focus to the 'invisible' label

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
