[Resolved]ComboBox change not firing updates

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Have 2 combo boxes on a form

When a selection is made in the first one, the contents of the second one are filled

The change is triggered by OnIndexChange

I am working with the first with this code

ControlFocus("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]")
  ComboBox_SelectString("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]", "PORTRAIT Share 80 Plus Rx Unlimited")
  sleep(2000)
  ComboBox_SelectString("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]", "MONOGRAM Total Plus Rx")
  sleep(2000)
  ComboBox_SelectString("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]", $MasterArray[$Counter][34])
  Sleep(2000)
  ConsoleWrite("Plan Chosen: " & $MasterArray[$Counter][34] & @CRLF)oÝ÷ ÚØ^~*ì·kç-±ªÞvÞ¶äDBÈZ§Ø^ríz{l¶­Âä±8^«-Ëay§-¹©i©ìzW¶*'Ü(®K-¢TNz'zíç!jx²+-®( z¸§Ø^±ç(×(º£h~)erëyËeÈèaz··öËax*&nhÅ'¥yËR¶¸§û§rب«­¢+ÙÕ¹

Any thoughts on how to get this to fire the event?

When you say:

BUT

none of the changes is triggering the second combo box to fill correctly....

Do you mean they are not filled at all, or they are filled in the wrong index position?


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

here's 2 videos, 1 manual, 1 showing what Autoit is doing...

(changed the code slightly... what I am doing now: (tried multiple set-focus's) )

Sleep(4000)
  ControlFocus("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]")
  ComboBox_SelectString("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]", "PORTRAIT Share 80 Plus Rx Unlimited")
  ControlFocus("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a13]")
  Sleep(2000)
  ControlFocus("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]")
  ComboBox_SelectString("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]", "MONOGRAM Total Plus Rx")
  ControlFocus("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a13]")
  Sleep(2000)
  ControlFocus("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]")
  ComboBox_SelectString("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a8]", $MasterArray[$Counter][34])
  ControlFocus("Rate Calculator", "", "[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.378734a13]")
  Sleep(2000)
  ConsoleWrite("Plan Chosen: " & $MasterArray[$Counter][34] & @CRLF)

If you look at the manual one, you can see that, as I change the value in the top box, the choices in the bottom one change (other parts of the page change too... you can see bits of that)

In the autoit one, you will note that NOTHING changes but the field getting managed... THis is a problem because, for some cases, I need to "pick" a value in box #2 that is ...not there... thus causing malnourisment and discontent

Seems to be a problem with triggering the change event. Maybe you should move the focus to some other control before you move it to the second combo.

Maybe...

Func ComboBox_SelectString($winTitle, $winText, $control, $option)
    Local $hWnd = ControlGetHandle($winTitle, $winText, $control)
    Local $index = _GUICtrlComboBox_FindString($hWnd, $option)
    If $index = -1 Then
        SetError(1)
        Return False
    EndIf
    _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd, True)
    _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCurSel($hWnd, $index)
    _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd)
    Return True
EndFunc   ;==>ComboBox_SelectString

Are you sure the second combo change is triggered ok when doing it manually with keyboard (exactly the same steps you do in script) too?

Quite sure

(I added a couple steps in the video to demonstrate that the contents of the second dropdown were changing)

Func ComboBox_SelectString($winTitle, $winText, $control, $option)
    Local $hWnd = ControlGetHandle($winTitle, $winText, $control)
    Local $index = _GUICtrlComboBox_FindString($hWnd, $option)
    If $index = -1 Then
        SetError(1)
        Return False
    EndIf
    _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd, True)
    _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCurSel($hWnd, $index)
    _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd)
    Return True
EndFunc   ;==>ComboBox_SelectString
that method does not actually DO anything in a .Net environment... the selection is highlighted, but not "made"

(Box opens, selection is highlighted, box closes, default is still selected.. odd thing with the setcursel... that's all it does, set the cursor to the selection...)

Looked at your code and ...extended the thought a bit....

BINGO BINGO BINGO!!!!!

Here's the combination of our 2 functions.....

Func ComboBox_SelectString($winTitle, $winText, $control, $option)
 Local $hWnd = ControlGetHandle($winTitle, $winText, $control)
 Local $index = _GUICtrlComboBox_FindString($hWnd, $option)
 If $index = -1 Then
  SetError(1)
  Return False
 EndIf
 ;_GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd, True)
 ;_GUICtrlComboBox_SetCurSel($hWnd, $index)
 ;_GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd)

 If $index = 0 Then
  ; If the item is the first in the list, use hotkeys to navigate to it
  _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd, True)
  ControlSend($winTitle, $winText, $hWnd, "{PGUP}")
  _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd)
 Else
  ; Select the item right before the target index, then send down
  _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd, True)
  _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCurSel($hWnd, $index - 1)
  ControlSend($winTitle, $winText, $hWnd, "{DOWN}")
  _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hWnd)
 EndIf
 Return True
EndFunc   ;==>ComboBox_SelectString

Works like a champ.

Guess the event would not "trigger" till the control was toggled open and shut......

Good to know!
