Combobox with variable value

Recommended Posts


I am just trying to create a dropdown that has options inside of it but for each of these options have different values.

For example the dropdown would say "Orlando" but the value would be orlando.server1.com and I would want this stored in a variable.

I know how to create the dropdown and variables but im not sure how to assign the alternate value to the combobox elements.

Any help is appreciated.

The simplest way would be to get a value in the combo box, then use GUICtrlRead in a Select Case. Something like this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please select your nearest office",3,8)

$n1=GUICtrlCreateList ("", 45,35,100,220 )
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"Basingstoke|Sunderland|Aberdeen", "Aberdeen")

$n2=GUICtrlCreateButton ("Start",50, 260, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_FOCUS); the focus is on this button


; Get location
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $n2 Then 
            case GUICtrlRead($n1) = "Basingstoke"
                $Server = "\\basiserver\Software"
            case GUICtrlRead($n1) = "Sunderland"
                $Server = "\\sundserver\Software"
            case GUICtrlRead($n1) = "Aberdeen"
                $Server = "\\aberserver\Software"
    ElseIf $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then

ConsoleWrite($Server & "\Install\Setup.exe" & @CRLF)

Hope this helps,
