$Lb_1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 100, 100)

GUICtrlSetData($Lb_1,"C:\App1.exe|C:\App2.exe|C:\App3.exe")

If GUIGetMsg() = $Lb_1 Then ShellExecute(GuiCtrlRead($Lb_1))

$Lb_1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 100, 100)

GUICtrlSetData($Lb_1,"C:\App1.exe|C:\App2.exe|C:\App3.exe")

If GUIGetMsg() = $Lb_1 Then ShellExecute(GuiCtrlRead($Lb_1))

Thank you for your reply.

I have this as follows

GuiCtrlCreateList("", 5, 190, 100, 90)

GuiCtrlSetData(-1, "C:\App1.exe|C:\App2.exe|C:\App2.exe")

GuiCtrlCreateButton("Sample Button", 10, 330, 100, 30)

What I want to do is that when the item is selected in the list, and the button is pressed, it execute application via ShellExecute.

Also is it possible that, instead of showing the full path of application "C:\App1.exe" can we show only "App1" which map to "C:\App1.exe".

One more thing, instead of the file path, is it possible that the listbox item points to application in the folder where the script reside? I actually want this, this will look nice interface.

I will appreciate your help.

Regards,

Ejaz

It's the 2 While loops.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <AVIConstants.au3>
#include <TreeViewConstants.au3>

GuiCreate("Test1", 600, 600)

$List = GuiCtrlCreateList("", 5, 190, 100, 90)

$Btn = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Sample Button", 10, 330, 100, 30)
While 1
Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
Case $Btn
Switch GUICtrlRead($List)
Case "App1"
$App = "C:\App1.exe"
Case "App2"
$App = "C:\my path\app2.exe"
Case "App3"

You need the

GUISetState()

statement before the While Loop begins.
