right click on Listbox

31 Dec 2018, 02:51

How do I get the text from a row in a listbox by right-clicking on it? This script only retrieves the row number, but not its text. I have been hammering away at this for an hour and I finally give up :(

Code: Select all

Gui, Add, Listbox, x50 y50 gGuiContextMenu, This is Row 1|This is Row 2|This is Row 3
Gui, Show, h200 w200
return

guiclose:
exitapp

GuiContextMenu:
if A_GuiEvent = RightClick
{
	msgbox, %A_EventInfo%
}
return
