Page Menu Control UDC

12 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

A page menu contains grouped lists of conceptually related pages (In AutoIt they don't have pages therefore it is windows that can be shown) or links.

The Page Menu enables the end-user to hide items and to reopen them.

This Page Menu Control UDC is a control made up of other controls in AutoIt e.g labels,Pics and icons. The groups buttons are not actual buttons but they were made by the use of "GUICtrlOnHover.au3" UDF and the same goes for the HyperLinks. The only difference between the real Page Menu control and this control is that it does not create Pages(form) nor it has a scroll bar when the groups go off the background image.(I did not make the control in a different gui and then add it with a scroll bar, because it will not re-size when the parent window has been re-sized therefore it would have to be done manually)

This UDC has functions to update the Page Menu whenever you want to update it. I have also added "PageMenu_LoadInterfaceImages" function to enable customization of the skin, which means you can have different skins for each control that you create.

Works on x86 bit and x64 bit systems.

UDFs required:

GUICtrlOnHover.au3

Icons.au3

Script Function:

PageMenu_Create

PageMenu_LoadInterfaceImages

PageMenu_AddGroup

PageMenu_GetHandleOfGroupButton

PageMenu_GetHandleOfControlsWindow

PageMenu_GetHandleOfControlsBK

PageMenu_DeleteItem

PageMenu_AddItem

PageMenu_GetGroupItemCount

PageMenu_GetGroupCount

PageMenu_Destroy

PageMenu_DeleteGroup

How the Page Menu looks like.

This is very nice Antop, 4 stars from me.

The text in the MsBox's seems to be wrong which is confusing.

It would be useful to have

PageMen_GroupSetVisible

PageMenu_ItemSetVisible

PageMenu_ItemSetEnabled

so that options can be shown or not depending on circumstances without needing to destroy and recreate them.

I find it a bit awkward that you have used assign for the items rather than use an array. It means that to work out the ID of an item you would have to reconstruct the ID name and use Eval if you were building the PageMenus at run time or in a loop. I would prefer that AddItem returned the ID on success and 0 on failure, and an option for some way to return an array of the ID's for a group, but I expect I am being fussy. It could also prevent the warnings about undeclared variables which I don't like.

Thanks,

I changed it to what you told but I will consider doing the functions that you noted above at a later point.

Thanks, I like the changes you made; I think it makes the UDF easier to use.

But the message boxes still have incorrect text I think.

"Adding Item to PageMenu Control 2 at Group Index 4"

should be

"Adding Item to PageMenu control 2 Group Index 1"

"Deleting Item of PageMenu Control 2 at Group index 2"

should be

"Deleting PageMenu Control 2 Group 3"

Thanks you for indicating about the the error, the thing was that i changed it to different indexes in the function but forgot to update the message boxes indexes too.

I also created a new skin and it is included in the example.

If when i run the example and do a click in the button "Delete PageMenu Control 2" and then try to collapse any of the groups from the control 1, i have the followed error.

Fixed the issue, it was just the case of a bug where i was meant to put 1 but instead i had $PageMenuUDF_FullData[$Temp1[0]][1].

You and martin have been a real help in getting this project fixed.
