ControlChooseIndex N, Control , WinTitle, WinText, ExcludeTitle, ExcludeText

Parameters

N

Type: Integer

The index of the entry or tab, where 1 is the first entry or tab, 2 is the second, etc. To deselect all entries in a ListBox or ComboBox, specify 0.

Control

Type: String, Integer or Object

The control's ClassNN, text or HWND, or an object with a Hwnd property. For details, see The Control Parameter.

WinTitle

Type: String, Integer or Object

A window title or other criteria identifying the target window. See WinTitle.

WinText

Type: String

If present, this parameter must be a substring from a single text element of the target window (as revealed by the included Window Spy utility). Hidden text elements are detected if DetectHiddenText is ON.

ExcludeTitle

Type: String

Windows whose titles include this value will not be considered.

ExcludeText

Type: String

Windows whose text include this value will not be considered.

Error Handling

An exception is thrown if the window or control could not be found or the change could not be applied.

Remarks

To select all items in a multi-select listbox, follow this example:

PostMessage(0x185, 1, -1, "ListBox1", WinTitle)  ; Select all listbox items. 0x185 is LB_SETSEL.

To improve reliability, a delay is done automatically after each use of this function. That delay can be changed via SetControlDelay or by assigning a value to A_ControlDelay. For details, see SetControlDelay remarks.

Window titles and text are case sensitive. Hidden windows are not detected unless DetectHiddenWindows has been turned on.
