st: Stata 9 dialog problem with .iseq() |

Hello Statalisters, I am experiencing a problem with how the strings are handled in the dialogs (Stata 9). The attached code makes the problem apparent. To reproduce the problem: 1. save the file into test_combo.dlg 2. db test_combo 3. When any item is selected, its name appears in the Stata results window 4. When "Other" is selected, a message will pop-up "We are OK" 5. Now replace "Other" with "Other...". Notice that it must be changed 2 times. 6. discard 7. db test_combo 8. When any item is selected, its name appears in the Stata results window 9. When "Other" is selected, the message DOES NOT pop-up. The problem relates to using points in the values. I want to notify a user that a new dialog window will open if a particular value is selected among the choices (which is conventionally done by placing "..." after it). Is there any quick fix to it? Best regards, Sergiy Radyakin /* test_combo.dlg */ VERSION 9 SYNCHRONOUS_ONLY POSITION 300 100 300 100 DIALOG main, label("Stata 9 combobox problem") BEGIN COMBOBOX cb1 30 10 100 ., contents(ls_combovalues) onselchange("program combo_changed") dropdownlist END LIST ls_combovalues BEGIN "First" "Second" "Third" "Other" END SCRIPT PREINIT BEGIN create BOOLEAN AfterInit END SCRIPT POSTINIT BEGIN AfterInit.settrue END PROGRAM combo_changed BEGIN if AfterInit { put `"di as result ""' main.cb1 `"""' stata hidden if main.cb1.iseq("Other") { stopbox note "We are OK" } } END // -- EOF(test_combo.dlg) -- * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
