ComboBox read-only ?

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Is there any way to make ComboBox read-only, like Edit control ? I mean, so you can't type to the ComboBox, just select.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT (1 MINUTE LOL) : Fixed, I had to use $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST.

EDIT 2 : Now _GUICtrlComboBox_GetEditText, _GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditText and _GUICtrlListBox_AddString don't work. I also tried ListBox, no succes though.

EDIT 3 : Also tried GUICtrlRead (also tried _GetCurSel) instead of _GetEditText, but if I just move my mouse over the list, it does the next thing...Cur. piece of code :

$procitaj = _GUICtrlComboBox_GetCurSel ($klasa0)
    If $procitaj <> "" Then
        $split = StringSplit ($procitaj, " ")
        _GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditText($klasa0, "")
        Sleep (100)
        $iznos = InputBox ($split[1] & " - " & $split[3], "Vrijednost  : ")
        _GUICtrlListBox_AddString ($klasa0lista, $split[1] & " - " & $iznos)
EndIf

No.

EDIT 3 : Also tried GUICtrlRead (also tried _GetCurSel) instead of _GetEditText, but if I just move my mouse over the list, it does the next thing...Cur. piece of code :

If I just hover over the list, it will show the InputBox, even if I don't click on the option. How to fix it ? _GetEditText doesn't work.

A working example of my problem (commented, so you know where and what is the problem ):

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GUIComboBox.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 284, 58, 193, 115)
$combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 54, 14, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
;I want the combo read only, so you can't type anything to it
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "one|two|three|four|five")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
;======PROBLEM --- I only want to read if I press on the option, not if I just move my mouse over it...
    $procitaj = GuiCtrlRead ($combo)
;====PROBLEM
    If $procitaj <> "" Then
        MsgBox (64, "problem...", "when you just hover over the option, this appears. I want that this appears only if I click on the option")
        GUICtrlSetData ($combo, "")
;that is to stop msgbox (change the combobox to "" so it doesn't show the msgbox)
        Endif
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

And BTW, the $klasa0 of the example I posted before...

$klasa0 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 18, 112, 100, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL,$CBS_DISABLENOSCROLL,$WS_HSCROLL,$WS_VSCROLL))

Here is simpler method:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GUIComboBox.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 284, 58, 193, 115)
$combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 54, 14, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
;I want the combo read only, so you can't type anything to it
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "one|two|three|four|five")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $combo 
            $procitaj = GuiCtrlRead ($combo)
            If $procitaj <> "" Then
                MsgBox (64, "problem...", "when you just hover over the option, this appears. I want that this appears only if I click on the option")
                GUICtrlSetData ($combo, "")
            Endif
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Hi Zedna,

I tried yours and Gary. Your script is when I choose an option, it will open a MsgBox. But after I want to try second, third, etc, the option list was gone?

There was a GUICtrlSetData ($combo, ""), so the Combo was clear afterwards.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIComboBox.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 284, 58, 193, 115)
$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 54, 14, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
;I want the combo read only, so you can't type anything to it -> $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "one|two|three|four|five")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hCombo ; Do, when ComboItem selected
            MsgBox(0, 'Selected', GUICtrlRead($hCombo))
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Hi Zedna,

I tried yours and Gary. Your script is when I choose an option, it will open a MsgBox. But after I want to try second, third, etc, the option list was gone?

Original poster have had this functionality there so I haven't changed that piece of code.

I have just sticked all the code into the right places.

So ask that question to original poster, why he wanted to delete ComboBox after select some option from it.

As ProgAndy said: If you want to preserve ComboBox just comment one line GUICtrlSetData ($combo, "").

Thanks to both for your help ! But Gary's script deletes all of the options...and I just wanted to delete the selected one. Ex. :

You click on "three". MsgBox appears, list disappears. Delete the "three" which is NOW in the ComboBox, not to delete it as option. Thanks to both again, Gary's script is hard to understand and I'll also try to make Zedna's work. Thanks again !

EDIT : Fixed Zedna's script.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GUIComboBox.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 284, 58, 193, 115)
$combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 54, 14, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
;I want the combo read only, so you can't type anything to it
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "one|two|three|four|five")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $combo
            $procitaj = GuiCtrlRead ($combo)
            If $procitaj <> "" Then
                MsgBox (64, "problem...", "when you just hover over the option, this appears. I want that this appears only if I click on the option")
                GUICtrlSetData ($combo, "")
        GUICtrlSetData($combo, "one|two|three|four|five")
            Endif
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Just added GuiCtrlSetData again :D

And works perfectly =)
