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.
