[SOLVED] Combo-Box Problem

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,

How can I get the selected item in a combo-box?

I tried with _GUICtrlComboBox_GetCurSel, but it gets the hovered item index.

I want to get the item index, only when the user click on it.

I tried with GuiCtrlRead, but it gets the text of the item.

I want to get the item index and not the text.

Thanks. :)

FSoft,

I usually get the selected text with GUICtrlRead and then use that text in _GUICtrlComboBox_FindStringExact to find the corresponding index.

Yes, but I cannot get text because I'm working on a program multilanguage!

Is there another solution?

An alternative.o normal methods... :)

Make sure you look the _GUICtrlComboBox_* functions too.

Global Const $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST = 0x0003
Global $aComboText[5]
$aComboText[0] = 4
$aComboText[1] = "Bust"
$aComboText[2] = "Cost"
$aComboText[3] = "Lost"
$aComboText[4] = "Lose"

$hGUI = GUICreate("GUI Title", 200, 100)
$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Lust", 10, 10, 180, 33, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

For $i = 1 To $aComboText[0]
    GUICtrlSetData($hCombo, $aComboText[$i])
Next
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case - 3
            Exit
        Case $hCombo
            $read = GUICtrlRead($hCombo)
            For $i = 1 To $aComboText[0]
                If $read = $aComboText[$i] Then 
                    $i += 1
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            Next
            MsgBox(0, "", "Index = " & $i)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Cheers,

FSoft,

To satisfy my curiosity, could you please explain why the fact that your program is "multilanguage" prevents you getting the selected text from a combobox with GUICtrlRead? To my simple mind, the actual language of the text is immateriel - the content of the combobox input is merely a string of bytes in memory somewhere.

Thanks in advance if you can find the time to elaborate.

The program I'm working on will be multilanguage: Italian, English, Spanish, ecc.

Then in English in the combo there are the following strings: Hello|Bye|Goodbye|Good morning. (It's only an example :))

In Italian: Ciao|Ciao|Arrivederci|Buongiorno.

In Spanish: Hola|Adiós|Adiós|Buenos días

If I get the text with GuiCtrlRead, I should write the If loops for each language!

I hope you understand me now!

@ BrettF: Thank you...the script works greatly!

FSoft,

But that is exactly why you need _GUICtrlComboBox_FindStringExact - it does all the searching for you!

Try this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <GuiComboBox.au3>

GUICreate("Test", 200, 200)

$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 180, 20, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Hello|Bye|Goodbye|Good morning", "")
;GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Ciao|Ciao2|Arrivederci|Buongiorno", "")
;GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Hola|Adiós|Adiós2|Buenos días", "")

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select", 60, 160, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            $sSelection = GUICtrlRead($hCombo)
            Local $iIndex = _GUICtrlComboBox_FindStringExact($hCombo, $sSelection)
            MsgBox(0,"Index", $iIndex)
    EndSwitch

WEnd

You do nothing - the function does the searching for you. You can put any language you like in the combo (try it with the other lines that are commented out above) and you have no loops to write. That is why I asked you for a few more details. It will find the first match - that it why I have amended "Ciao2" and "Adios2" to distinguish them.

I hope you understand ME now!
