ComboBox drop down select
« on: December 22, 2021, 06:28:12 AM »
Hi, I recently started doing OpenDCL programs, but its hard to find tutorials and I can't register on OpenDCL forum (I'm not getting mail to confirm my account). I'm having a problem, and solution should be easy but can't figure it out. I define a list of values (item1, item2,...) that can be selected by drop down combobox. How to setq a variable of the chosen value? For example, I choose "item1", and I want that some variable "VALUE" to be "item1" that is used later in my program.

Hi, did you check the tutorial attached? Its available in opendcl website.

Im recently learning OpenDCL I don have experience with the dropdown control. But if you check the Help fo opendcl you will find the controls and theirs properties.

I wondering you can do it with (dcl-Control-SetText [dropdown  name] [NewValue as string]) , the value of 'NewValue'  always must be a string.

I hope you have resolve it.

The tutorial referenced would be handy if it actually mentioned a ComboBox, which it doesn't!  :roll: Well, except for the words "combo box" in the Appendix.

As an OpenDCL newbie (only a couple weeks in), it's impressive, but finding good examples is very time-consuming. Would be amazing to have them included in the help.

Try the OPENDCLDEMO command.
The code for all samples can be found here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenDCL Studio\ENU\Samples\

Thanks, roy_043, but there is no such file in that folder.

If you want the value as a string, this will work:
Code: [Select]
(setq val (dcl-ComboBox-GetEBText ModelRole/Form1/ComboBox1))
