I am attempting to retrieve all the information from a ComboBox with no luck using the current stable version of AutoIT. see my previous Post

I was lurking around and found a dllcall function that is only available in the beta version. There was a Post explaining some use with a link to combobox items. here is the code that was given.

$hwnd = ControlGethandle("...","...","...")
;ControlGethandle("title", "text", "classnameNN")

Global $CB_GETCURSEL = 0x0147

$i = dllcall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hWnd",$hwnd,"int",$CB_GETCURSEL,"int", 0,"int", 0)

MsgBox(0,"","Item selected : " & $i[0])

ControlCommand ("..","...", "...","SetCurrentSelection",$i[0])

I am hoping that I can use CB_GETCOMBOBOXINFO to save all of the items in a combo box to a file. But before I download, install, and attempt to learn the Beta version I was wondering if someone could tell me if this will work.

Thanks,

Well, SendMessage + CB_GETCOMBOBOXINFO requires a structure, that is NOT supported. But... (BIG BUT), even if you could call it, CB_GETCOMBOBOXINFO would not give you a list of the combobox's contents... is that what you want? a list of the contents?

Lar.

edit: you would need to loop through $CB_GETCURSEL starting at 0 until it fails...

Yes I want to get a list of the combo boxes contents. will the $CB_GetCursel retrieve all the information without selecting any items from the combobox? If any item is selected it can take up to 3 Minutes to load the item before I can continue on.

I am sorry... it is CB_GETLBTEXT like...

here... test this on the combobox of the "Run" dialog...

$hwnd = ControlGethandle("Run","","ComboBox1")
;ControlGethandle("title", "text", "classnameNN")

Global $CB_GETLBTEXT =   0x0148

$i = 0
$list = ""

While 1
   $x = dllcall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage",_
          "hWnd",$hwnd,_
          "int",$CB_GETLBTEXT,_
          "int", $i,"str", "")
   If Not @error And $x[0] >= 0 Then
      $list = $list & $x[4] & @LF
   Else
      ExitLoop
   EndIf
   $i = $i + 1
WEnd
   
MsgBox(4096,"",$list)

Very nice.

I noticed one problem though: try this with Windows explorer. At least I got just the first letter of every item on the list. With Run dialog it works correctly.

Can anybody explain why?

First thought : May be You got an unicode string from IE.
