I am toying with the example GUICreateList from the help file and have modified it to use a group with a input box. I want to use the input box to add to the list but I can not figure out how to get the line break to work on the GUICtrlSetData($mylist, GUICtrlRead($Input_2)). ( pipe | ) I have a script on the server already using the create list but I want the tellers to be able to add new names to the list. I am a learning but I am stumped.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GLOBAL $MESSAGE = "The following buttons have been clicked"
GUICreate("My GUI list"); will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$add=GUICtrlCreateButton ("Add", 64,32,75,25)
$clear=GUICtrlCreateButton ("Clear", 64,72,75,25)
$mylist=GUICtrlCreateList ("buttons that have been clicked", 176,32,121,97)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1,200); to limit horizontal scrolling
$close=GUICtrlCreateButton ("my closing button", 64,160,175,25)

$group_1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup ("Group 1", 30, 210, 165, 70)
$Input_2 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 32, 240, 161, 20)

GUISetState ()

$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    case $msg = $add
;~      GUICtrlSetData($mylist,"You clicked button No1|")        *original*
        GUICtrlSetData($mylist,  GUICtrlRead($Input_2))
;~      GUICtrlSetData($mylist,  GUICtrlRead($Input_2),"|")
;~      GUICtrlSetData($mylist, "|")
         case $msg = $clear
         Case $msg = $close
            MsgBox(0,"", "the closing button has been clicked",2)

GUICtrlSetData($mylist,  GUICtrlRead($Input_2) & "|")


I'm not sure if that is what you want, as the original seemed functional too me. The version you posted added new entries to the top of the list, and doesnt duplicate entries, my version adds to the bottom of the list and allows for duplicate entries.

I'm not sure what you are trying to do. :)

I guess you saw the GuiCtrlSetData docs which said

For Combo or List control :

If the "data" corresponds to an already existing entry it is set as the default.

If the "data" starts with | or is an empty string "" the previous list is destroyed.

Do you have text with linebreaks (@CRLF's) that you want to replace with pipes??? StringReplace($text, @CRLF, "|")
