Alphabetical sorting on combobox

Recommended Posts


Hi everybody

Is it possible to make an Alphabetical sorting on the search result in a combobox.

My combobox is update with LDAP search but all "sAMAccountName" are not in alphabetical sorting.

If necessary, i can post my code.

Thanks for help

PS : sorry for my english

prob is a better way but maybe read the content into an array with _GUICtrlComboBox_GetListArray () then sort the array _ArraySort () & put them all back again

You were right - there is a better way. ;-)


Create your combo with the $CBS_SORT style. remember that you will need to BitOR this style with the default ones if you still want them. This is slightly modified from the Help file example for GUICtrlCreateCombo - you can see the muddled order when items are put in the combo, which are then sorted automatically when the GUI is displayed:

#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)


Func Example()
    Local $msg
    GUICreate("My GUI combo", 500, 500) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $CBS_SORT) ); BitOr required styles
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "item3|item1|item2", "item3"); add muddled item list and set a default


   ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
EndFunc  ;==>Example
