  1. hi dears, i have a question please am now working for an audio player for the blind users and i added an option to open a file from the right click context menu. but here there is a small problem, i hope that you can help me to find a solution for it. the problem is as follow : when i added the problem into the context menu it work with successfuly if the user select just one file. but if the user selected more then one file, here the problem a multiple sections of the program will open. my question is : how i can detect the multiple selection from the context menu? i know that it so hard, but i know also that you are harder than it for that dears please try to give me an solution for that problem. thanks in advance
  2. _ArrayToMenu()

    I've used PowerPro for years and it had a feature that let you turn an array into a menu. It also let you know if it got a right click. I liked the right click feature because it doubled the menu item usage ie left/right on the same menu item. I tried recreate that usage with a context menu. With _ArrayToMenu you can pass menu items for 1 and 2 dimensional arrays. Note you can indicate sub-menu but using a -> at the end of the item. Use a - to make a separater. Optionally you can pass Tooltips by passing a second array. This array must have the same dimensions as the items array even if not all the elements contain tips. The UDF returns an array with this index of row (and if submenus column), the third element is 1 if right clicked otherwise 0 and the fourth element of the array is the label of the menu item. If the user escapes without choosing an item the the first element returns a -1. Same thing if the user clicks on another window. @error returns 1 if there was no array passed, 2 if the second array has different dimensions than the first. If you use the same label in two parts of your menu you will have to distinguish them. You can do that by additionally making sure that the selection matches the index number(s). Note that you'll have to match the index number plus label before you match just the label because Switch will use the first match it can find. In the example below I am using a check on which column the data is in. If it's not in the first column then it must be the other "Beef". Beef Fruit Col2 > Beef Bread $aR = _ArrayToMenu($aM) Switch $aR[3] Case "Beef" and $aR[2] = 0 Beef1() Case "Beef" Beef2() EndSwitch On a technical note I attached the context menu to the window itself not a dummy control and I didn't use _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu. Instead I launched the context menu with "send shift-F10" and waited for GuiGetMsg() to give me the selection. Right click is picked up by GUIRegisterMsg WM_RBUTTONUP and Tooltips are done with GUIRegisterMsg WM_MENUSELECT. The whole thing is done with 3 functions. I won't tell you how long it took me to figure this out but I'll say that on one of my early attempts it had two windows running at once and one was just to recieve the right click an tell the other it got it. Suffice it to say I'm no wiz at Autoit but I really appreciate the support the community offers and I hope someone finds this useful. BTW I wrote a script to produce 1d and 2d auotit array code from excel in case you want to model your menu in excel.

  3. Hello my friends Can we create a single context menu on more than one item? For example, a context menu includes standardized options on more than one control, such as buttons or check boxes to Create a context menu on one item am using this function GUICtrlCreateContextMenu ($ HWND) How to link it with more than one element please? or if we can't do that, please give me a solution so i tried to add an context menus to all the controls but the script will be long, for that if their are any solutions i hope to give it to me thanks in advanced
  4. <a href="index.php=4143b27b41db0a40c499202865c3e24d" class="menuitem " target="\_self"> "Menu Item 1" </a> Can you tell me if it´s possible to click this menu button? If yes, how? Cause I have no idea, I think i should use _IETagNameGetCollection

  7. I have a working program currently driven largely through menu selections. I would like to add a toolbar where most of the tollbar button actions are basically the same as menu items, but quicker to access. I have been wading around in toolbar examples, MSDN pages etc, it's clearly going to be a bit of a slog to get everything right, including tooltips etc. I thought I would start with something simple to prove the principle. Using bits from the help file examples I have a small program that successfully displays a toolbar. However, what seemed like the most elegant way to deal with the button commands does not seem to work. My understanding was that a toolbar button fires a WM_COMMAND message, with the command Id set by the second parameter in the call to _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton ( $hWnd, $iID, $iImage) so I though it would be a good idea to set this Id to the same value as my menu item Id; then it would run the same task which is what I wanted. This did not work. I am using message loop mode and would like to stick with this because some of my scripts run hardware at the same time as the gui; it is easier if I don't have to worry about code being interrupted with the hardware in an unknown state . So I added a handler for WM_COMMAND, with some cribbed display code to try and see why. The toolbar button defintely fired a WM_COMMAND message and the Id looked the same, so no explanation there. I guess the issue is with GUIGetMsg() which may be constructed to ignore all but a limited number of control handles, i.e. those made with the GuiCtrlCreate... commands; this is speculation. I would dearly love to find a tidy way to get around this. Having some controls handled in the message loop and some in a WM_COMMAND handler, performing the same task, feels ugly. I would be very grateful for further insight from someone experienced with handling a toolbar. Perhaps I should be trying to fire the menu item. I have attached a code snippet to try and illustrate the issue. ToolbarTrial.au3
  8. Hi, i searched some topics but cannot found a simple way to do that: #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; I tried this but user reported that it work in 2006, not seems work actually $filemenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("&File") $fileitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Open",$filemenu) GuiCtrlSetImage($fileitem, "shell32.dll", 4) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Also tried: #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) $filemenu = TrayCreateMenu("&File") $fileitem = TrayCreateItem("Open",$filemenu) ;GuiCtrlSetImage($fileitem, "shell32.dll", 4) ;GuiCtrlSetImage(TrayItemGetHandle($fileitem), "shell32.dll", 4) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Well.. thanks in advance!

  9. hello guys how are you؟ I hope to be fine. I have a question please how do I get the menu item that was pressed without that contains a variable؟ For example I have a menu of Favorites and I want the script recognizes the existing path in the pressed item i'll repeat to tell the item does not contain a variable Is there any solution if you want to explain more I could write an example of what I want. Greetings to all, thanks in advance
  10. Recent Files Logic

    The following code is intended to illustrate a method of adding recent files to the File menu, once files have been opened or saved. This is not a UDF, nor a universal solution which fits all requirements. It is just the solution I made for myself and I thought it worth sharing. I haven't noticed much about this subject. The example only emulates opening and saving files: nothing is actually written to disk. I have not included any code for opening or saving files - only the File menu and Title bar are updated. The code is intended to illustrate the logic I used. Perhaps you can improve on it or get some ideas from this example. #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() #Region ; core functions Func UpdateRecentFiles(ByRef $aRecentFiles, $ahMenu, $sNewPath, $iMenuInsertPos) Local $iMaxFiles = UBound($aRecentFiles) -1 For $i = 1 To $aRecentFiles[0][0] ;

  11. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to make a menu without any tab stops for the buttons. I made a shell menu for BIOS flashing in WinPE and in it I don't want *any* buttons to be tab stopped. If I try to use GUICtrlSetStyle to remove the tab stops from all the buttons, the first button declared in the menu ends up the default (so the user could press the spacebar and the button is activated). Melba23 posted some code like below a long time ago in this post but it seems to do the same thing as GUICtrlSetStyle does. Any tips/help is appreciated. _WinAPI_SetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE, BitAND(_WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE), BitNOT($WS_TABSTOP))) #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <Constants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <Misc.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 0) ; prevent user from pressing escape key and accidentally cancelling the GUI HotKeySet("+!{ESC}", "_doCMD") ; shift-alt-escape for a command dialogue during GUI (lab/service use) #include <Array.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <Constants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <Misc.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> GLobal $s_Cmd1, $s_Cmd2, $s_Cmd3, $s_Cmd4, $s_Cmd5 $s_Debug = 0 $s_dbgArray = 0 Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 0) ; prevent user from pressing escape key and accidentally cancelling the GUI HotKeySet("+!{ESC}", "_doCMD") ; shift-alt-escape for a command dialogue during GUI (lab/service use) $MainMenu = GUICreate("Main BIOS Menu", 600, 400, -1, -1, 0, $WS_EX_TOPMOST) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 48, 64, 75, 25) $Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("One", 136, 68, 186, 20) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("2", 48, 110, 75, 25) $Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Two", 136, 113, 389, 20) $Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("3", 48, 172, 75, 25) $Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Three", 136, 176, 186, 20) $Button4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("4", 48, 218, 75, 25) $Label4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Four", 136, 221, 389, 20) $Button5 = GUICtrlCreateButton("5", 48, 272, 75, 25) $Label5 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Five", 136, 274, 280, 20) $Button6 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 475, 340, 75, 25) $Label6 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Click to cancel the operations", 300, 345, 175, 20) $Label0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please choose one of the following 5 options:", 171, 16, 271, 20) $Label7 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Which system do you want to set up?

  13. Greetings people of the AutoIt community! I think I have discovered some possible wrong verbiage in the HelpFile. I'm trying to make my software detect the _IsPressed("KEY") for the RIGHT MENU button on the keyboard. You all have a RIGHT MENU button on your keyboard (maybe you haven't noticed it), it's they key between the Right ALT key and the Right CTRL Key. However!!!!!!! In the helpfile it says the RIGHT MENU key is "A5", that is not true for me. A5 is actually the Right ALT key. So my question is, what is the _IsPressed HexKey for the RIGHT MENU button? #include <Misc.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll") While 1 If _IsPressed("A5", $hDLL) Then Sleep(100) msgbox(0,"Test", "Pressed!") Sleep(250) EndIf WEnd DllClose($hDLL) If you try to run the above code, the msgbox will only appear if you press the Right ALT key, even though the helpfil says that A5 is the Right Menu Key hex. Thank you, Brian

I guess what I want to know is (a) if a menu contains any additional functionality which makes it a preferred choice over a row of buttons? (b) since we can not make a button menu, would a row of buttons work when presented to the user as a menu? Anything else I should know? Thanks
  15. Hi guys, I'm using this startup example to allow the program menu to insert an option to "AutoStart" the script. What I'd like to do is update the checkbox of the menu item after they click it to then reflect the "AutoStart" state (on or off). How do I update the menu on the event someone clicks the menu option? The registry is updating correctly, and if I close and re-run the script the menu is updated, but not in the same script execution. I wasn't sure with TrayItemSetState for my "Func AutoStart()" Function what the "controlID" was. I tried 0 through to 3 and "AutoStart" text. Perhaps this is where I'm going wrong? ; Add custom tray icon menu #NoTrayIcon #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <TrayConstants.au3> Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3) Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1) #include '_Startup.au3' TrayCreateItem("AutoStart") TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "AutoStart") If _StartupRegistry_Exists() Then TrayItemSetState(-1, $TRAY_CHECKED) Else TrayItemSetState(-1, $TRAY_UNCHECKED) EndIf TrayCreateItem("About") TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "About") TrayCreateItem("") TrayCreateItem("Exit") TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "ExitScript") TraySetOnEvent($TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYDOUBLE, "About") TraySetState($TRAY_ICONSTATE_SHOW) ; ################## ; ### OTHER CODE ### ; ################## Func About() MsgBox(0,"About","etc") EndFunc Func AutoStart() If _StartupRegistry_Exists() Then _StartupRegistry_Uninstall() TrayItemSetState("AutoStart", $TRAY_UNCHECKED) Else _StartupRegistry_Install() TrayItemSetState("AutoStart", $TRAY_CHECKED) EndIf EndFunc Func ExitScript() Exit EndFuncThanks!
  16. Hi All, I have a custom icon for the tray menu icon, which was working until I copied in the example code for a custom menu when clicking on the tray icon, now it just displays the default AutoIt tray icon.

Can anyone advise what I need to do to use my custom icon while retaining the tray custom menu? Thanks! Also, the While 1 ... WEnd makes me nervous, how does this not lock up the system? If anyone would like to comment on that - thanks.

  18. Hi I'm trying to make a small script (windowless), when you run it there needs to appear a context-menu where the cursor is. So if you double-click on the script file it looks like the menu appears on the script icon.. is this easy to do? can't find an answer directly, wish i could post some code to begin with but I have no clue how to start this Can i use $hMenu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu(-1) for this with no window? dll calls are welcome to if it's not possible the simple way Like always, thanks in advance!

  20. I have a question relating to this code example of the user funkey: >ComboBox with radiobuttons and checkboxes The last posted code example of funkey combining a drop-down list with a "check"-option is great and it does still work with Win 7 and the current AutoIt version. The only "handicap" that bothers me is that the drop-down menu of the combo-button closes every time when one of the options is checked / set. Unfortunately I does not understand the code completely but do you think it would be possible to modify the behavior of the menu to keep it open as long as the user clicks outside the menu (e.g.) to give the user the ability to choose multiple options? Or maybe you know a GUI UDF package that contains a similar GUI element? I would be pleased for any tip / help. Auto42

Btw I started with this... #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <ListViewConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 314, 233, 192, 124) $ListView1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("Test|_Test", 14, 26, 154, 188) GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 0, 50) GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 1, 50) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### Local $ListViewArray[100] Local $OptionsArray[100] ;~ Local $contextmenu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($ListView1_0) ;~ Local $newsubmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("FUN", $contextmenu) ;~ $opt1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("op1", $newsubmenu) For $i = 0 To 6 If $ListViewArray[$i] == "" Then $ListViewArray[$i] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem( "test" & $i & "|" & "test" & $i * 2, $ListView1 ) Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch For $item In $ListViewArray If $item <> "" And GUICtrlRead( GUICtrlRead( $ListView1 ) ) == GUICtrlRead( $item ) Then $contextmenu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($item) $submenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("FUNCS", $contextmenu) $option1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("op1", $submenu) EndIf Next Sleep(10) WEnd
  23. I want to create a user context menu that's different for .au3 files than it is for .js files but I cannot get the "if" part to work. I tried modifying the SciTEUser.properties file with these lines: user.context.menu=||xxx Def|1138|xxx Ref|1139|xxx Del| if $Language = "au3" user.context.menu=||$(au3) Def|1138|$(Language) Ref|1139|AU3 Del| if $Language - "cpp" user.context.menu=||$(au3) Def|1138|$(Language) Ref|1139|AU3 Del| But this doesn't work. I always see the first menu (xxx) when I right click in either the .au3 file or the .js file.
  24. EditWithSciTE v1.0.0.3 I love SciTE ! Before i usually used SendTo or drag'ndrop external files on SciTE Editor for edit or take a look to their content. Now with EditWithSciTE a Right Click Contextual Menu can be added/Removed for Edit some file type with SciTE Editor. Source : EditWithSciTEEditor v1.0.0.3.au3 Executable : EditWithSciTEEditor.exe.html (Once this html file downloaded, double click on it for start the download) Will be added to the next version of SciTE Hopper.
  25. I'm just curious why this doesn't work. Why doesn't the program exit when exit menu is clicked. What am I doing wrong? #include #include #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 221, 173, 192, 114) $exit = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Exit") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $exit ;This doesn't get called Exit EndSwitch WEnd
