Examples

Example 1

asc
CC "AdoScript" LISTBOX 	entries:"First Entry;Second Entry;Third;Fourth;Fifth Entry" 
						toksep:";" 
						title:"Example!" 
						oktext:"Click me!" 
						boxtext:"Choose your entry:" 
						selection:"Second Entry"
IF (endbutton = "ok") {
   CC "AdoScript" INFOBOX (selection)
}
CC "AdoScript" LISTBOX 	entries:"First Entry;Second Entry;Third;Fourth;Fifth Entry" 
						toksep:";" 
						title:"Example!" 
						oktext:"Click me!" 
						boxtext:"Choose your entry:" 
						selection:"Second Entry"
IF (endbutton = "ok") {
   CC "AdoScript" INFOBOX (selection)
}

Starts an LISTBOX with the entries "First Entry", "Second Entry", "Third", "Fourth" and "Fifth Entry". As entries are separated by the character ";", toksep:";" defines this character as the separator. The second entry is preselected.

After the user selected some other entry and clicks the "Ok" button, the return value is displayed in an info box.
