Using an Array in guictrlsetdata

Recommended Posts


Does anyone know if you can use an array to populate guictrlsetdata.

I want to get directory names. eg: c:\pgrm1, c:\prgm2, and continue checking how many prgm directories there are.

Then i want to then populate the guictrlsetdata field for a guictrlcreatecombo.

There could be a varying amount of directories.

Is this possible.

You can use the array. Simply concatenate the elements:

$array[n]; this is the array that holds the items you want to put in the combo
$sData_List = ""
For $i = 0 to UBound($array) - 1
    $sData_List &= $array[$i] & "|"

You now have a "|" delineated list of the elements. If you want to replace whatever is in the combo, set the variable to "|" rather than "" - from the Help file: "For Combo or List control : If the "data" starts with GUIDataSeparatorChar or is an empty string "" the previous list is destroyed".
