GetControlAttr <requester> <control index> <type>

<requester> this is the handle returned when opening the requester
<control index> the index of the control as specified in the rsc file
<type> ControlAttr_String, ControlAttr_Number, ControlAttr_State, ControlAttr_Current

String is general purpose
State is for checkbox (0 == unselected; 1 == selected)
Number is for integers
Current is for lists and popup menus (number is entry in list, if you want the list item text use String)

Python:


width = float(GetControlAttr(reqH, 11, ControlAttr_String)['.result'])

Theoretically supports ControlAttr_SelectionArray to retrieve multiple selections though this may not work up to 5.0.4.18 at the least.

The following would appear to be valid attribute types as of 5.0.5.8:

ControlAttr_String
ControlAttr_List
ControlAttr_Current
ControlAttr_SelectionArray
ControlAttr_StringArray
ControlAttr_Min
ControlAttr_Max
ControlAttr_State
ControlAttr_MixedState
ControlAttr_NumChars
ControlAttr_Number
