_GUICtrlListBox_SelectString

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi. I would like to save IE bookmarks.

Local $SleepPeriod = 2000
$oIE = _IECreate ()
WinWaitActive("about:blank")
    
Send("!F")  ;  File menu
Sleep ($SleepPeriod)
Send("I")   ; "Import and Export" item
Sleep ($SleepPeriod)
Send("!N") ; "Next" button
Sleep ($SleepPeriod)

Local $listbox = ControlGetHandle("", "", 17011)  ; ListBox control
Local $listitem = _GUICtrlListBox_SelectString($listbox, "Export Favorites"); Required item is selected successfully.
    
Sleep ($SleepPeriod)
Send("!N");  When I click "ALT-N" here, the first item ("Import Favorites") is used, not the item selected earlier ("Export Favorites")

What's wrong with my code? Of course, I can use Send ("{Down}") instead of _GUICtrlListBox_SelectString but it's really intresting to work with ListBox directly.

Thanks.

Closed.

Instead of _GUICtrlListBox_SelectString I used ControlCommand ("","", $id, "SelectString", $string).

Instead of Send("!N") I used ControlClick($title, $text, $id)

It works.

From memory GeoSoft was working on something similar. Not sure if it was public though... Maybe wait to see what he says... :D

Anyone kept silence except you. So I decided I'd asked something silly and got to rewrite my code though I'm still eager to know what was wrong with the initial code :D
