GuiCtrlCreateCombo and GUICtrlSetFont

Recommended Posts

Champak

When I use GUICtrlSetFont with GuiCtrlCreateCombo it highlights the combo list. I try to workaround it by setting focus on another input, but that doesn't work. Any ideas, or is this just how it is? Also notice it doesn't have cursor focus...it seems to just highlight it. Image below.

$hGUI = GUICreate("(External) ComboBox Create", 400, 296)
$hCombo = _GUICtrlComboBox_Create ($hGUI, "Hello", 2, 2, 396, 296)


GUICtrlSetFont ($hCombo,9, 400, 4, "ARIAL")

;This will set your cursor to the first character, changeable of course.
_GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditSel($hCombo, 0, 0)

$msg = GuiGetMsg()
If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then Exit

Hope this helps

Thanks, but that really doesn't solve what I want...and on top of that, it doesn't allow me to use guictrlsetfont. Here is my example.

$Array[0][1] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($Settings_Array_1[1], 10, 50, 140, 30)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, $FS+3, $FW)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "United States|Canada|London")
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Array[0][1], "_Click_3")

The default is what gets highlighted once I go to that "page/screen". Once I double click it the highlight goes away.

So is this a bug?

How does this not solve what you want? Perhaps I'm not understanding what you need. I thought you wanted to prevent the selection in the combo box from becoming highlighted? The line below does that. You will need to find a way to trap the event that occurs when a user selects something from the dropdown list and then when that event occurs, use the line below. Can you please post more code so I can get an better idea of what you are trying to do?

_GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditSel($hCombo, 0, 0)

Here is why it doesn't work...or rather, what I am having difficulties with. As said before, I can't get the font to change size/weight, and also I can't get the combo to hide. (I know you don't see the gui hide function in the example, I have a loop at the end of the gui creation that hides everything and does some other stuff.)

$Array[2][1] = _GUICtrlComboBox_Create($GUIMain,"", 380, 50, 100, 65)
    _GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditText($Array[2][1], "65367")
    _GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditSel($Array[2][1], 0, 0)
    _GUICtrlComboBox_BeginUpdate ($Array[2][1])
    For $pl = 1 To $Settings_Array_2[0]
        _GUICtrlComboBox_AddString ($Array[2][1], $Settings_Array_2[$pl])
    Next    
    _GUICtrlComboBox_EndUpdate ($Array[2][1])
    GUICtrlSetFont($Array[2][1], $FS+3, $FW)

You could use this as workaround: Setting the Focus to the Box and then to An other Control:

GUICtrlCreateCombo("What ever", 10, 50, 140, 30)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 700)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "United States|Canada|London")
    GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)
    GUICtrlCreateButton("Test",100,100,100,30)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)

Or this way: _GUIcomboBox_ Funcs work with AutoIt-Box, too:

CODE
$combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("What ever", 10, 50, 140, 30)

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 700)

GUICtrlSetData(-1, "United States|Canada|London")

_GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditSel($combo,0,0)
