  1. Any idea how to change this example from LarsJ so that the selection via arrow keys works for marked cells? ;coded by LarsJ #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListView.au3> Opt( "MustDeclareVars", 1 ) Global $hGui, $hLV, $iLVx, $iLVy, $aHit[2] = [ -1, -1 ] ; $aHit contains row & col of marked cell Global $aLV = [ [ 0, 25, 45, -1, -1 ], _ ; $hLV, $iLVx, $iLVy, $aHit[0], $aHit[1] [ 0, 125, 145, -1, -1 ], _ [ 0, 225, 245, -1, -1 ] ] Example() Func Example() $hGui = GUICreate( "Mark Cell in Listview", 500, 520 ) Local $idTab = GUICtrlCreateTab( 10, 10, 480, 500 ) GUICtrlCreateTabItem( "Tab 0, LV 0" ) Local $idLV0 = GUICtrlCreateListView( "Column 0|Column 1|Column 2", 25, 45, 250, 250 ) For $i = 0 To 99 GUICtrlCreateListViewItem( "Cell " & $i & ".0" & "|Cell " & $i & ".1" & "|Cell " & $i & ".2", $idLV0 ) Next $hLV = GUICtrlGetHandle( $idLV0 ) $aLV[0][0] = $hLV $iLVx = 25 $iLVy = 45 GUICtrlCreateTabItem( "Tab 1, LV 1" ) Local $idLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView( "Column 0|Column 1|Column 2", 125, 145, 250, 250 ) For $i = 0 To 99 GUICtrlCreateListViewItem( "Cell " & $i & ".0" & "|Cell " & $i & ".1" & "|Cell " & $i & ".2", $idLV1 ) Next $aLV[1][0] = GUICtrlGetHandle( $idLV1 ) GUICtrlCreateTabItem( "Tab 2, LV 2" ) Local $idLV2 = GUICtrlCreateListView( "Column 0|Column 1|Column 2", 225, 245, 250, 250 ) For $i = 0 To 99 GUICtrlCreateListViewItem( "Cell " & $i & ".0" & "|Cell " & $i & ".1" & "|Cell " & $i & ".2", $idLV2 ) Next $aLV[2][0] = GUICtrlGetHandle( $idLV2 ) GUICtrlCreateTabItem( "" ) GUIRegisterMsg( $WM_NOTIFY, "WM_NOTIFY" ) GUISetState() Local $iTab, $iTabPrev = 0 While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $idTab $iTab = GUICtrlRead( $idTab ) $aLV[$iTabPrev][3] = $aHit[0] $aLV[$iTabPrev][4] = $aHit[1] $hLV = $aLV[$iTab][0] $iLVx = $aLV[$iTab][1] $iLVy = $aLV[$iTab][2] $aHit[0] = $aLV[$iTab][3] $aHit[1] = $aLV[$iTab][4] If $aHit[0] <> -1 Then _ _GUICtrlListView_RedrawItems( $hLV, $aHit[0], $aHit[0] ) $iTabPrev = $iTab Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd EndFunc Func WM_NOTIFY( $hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam ) Local $tNMHDR, $hWndFrom, $iCode $tNMHDR = DllStructCreate( $tagNMHDR, $lParam ) $hWndFrom = HWnd( DllStructGetData( $tNMHDR, "hWndFrom" ) ) $iCode = DllStructGetData( $tNMHDR, "Code" ) Switch $hWndFrom Case $hLV Switch $iCode Case $LVN_ITEMCHANGED Local $tNMLISTVIEW, $iItem, $aInfo $tNMLISTVIEW = DllStructCreate( $tagNMLISTVIEW, $lParam ) $iItem = DllStructGetData( $tNMLISTVIEW, "Item" ) _GUICtrlListView_SetItemSelected( $hLV, $iItem, False ) _GUICtrlListView_SetItemState( $hLV, $iItem, 0, $LVIS_FOCUSED ) Local $aInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo( $hGui ) If $aInfo[2] Then $aInfo = _GUICtrlListView_SubItemHitTest( $hLV, $aInfo[0]-$iLVx, $aInfo[1]-$iLVy ) If $aInfo[0] > -1 And $aInfo[1] > -1 And $aInfo[0] = $iItem Then If $aHit[0] > -1 Then _ _GUICtrlListView_RedrawItems( $hLV, $aHit[0], $aHit[0] ) If $aHit[0] <> $aInfo[0] Or $aHit[1] <> $aInfo[1] Then $aHit[0] = $aInfo[0] ; Row $aHit[1] = $aInfo[1] ; Col Else $aHit[0] = -1 ; Row $aHit[1] = -1 ; Col EndIf _GUICtrlListView_RedrawItems( $hLV, $iItem, $iItem ) EndIf EndIf Case $NM_CUSTOMDRAW Local $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW = DllStructCreate( $tagNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, $lParam ) Local $dwDrawStage = DllStructGetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "dwDrawStage" ) Switch $dwDrawStage ; Holds a value that specifies the drawing stage Case $CDDS_PREPAINT ; Before the paint cycle begins Return $CDRF_NOTIFYITEMDRAW ; Notify the parent window of any ITEM-related drawing operations Case $CDDS_ITEMPREPAINT ; Before painting an item Return $CDRF_NOTIFYSUBITEMDRAW ; Notify the parent window of any SUBITEM-related drawing operations Case BitOR( $CDDS_ITEMPREPAINT, $CDDS_SUBITEM ) ; Before painting a subitem Local $dwItemSpec = DllStructGetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "dwItemSpec" ) ; Item index Local $iSubItem = DllStructGetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "iSubItem" ) ; Subitem index Local $uItemState = DllStructGetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "uItemState" ) ; Item state If $dwItemSpec = $aHit[0] Then ; Marked row Switch $iSubItem Case $aHit[1] ; Marked column DllStructSetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "ClrText", 0xFFFFFF ) ; Forecolor white DllStructSetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "clrTextBk", 0xCC6600 ) ; Backcolor dark blue, BGR Case Else ; Other columns DllStructSetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "ClrText", 0x000000 ) ; Forecolor black DllStructSetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "ClrTextBk", 0xFFFFFF ) ; Backcolor white EndSwitch Else ; Other rows DllStructSetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "ClrText", 0x000000 ) DllStructSetData( $tNMLVCUSTOMDRAW, "ClrTextBk", 0xFFFFFF ) EndIf Return $CDRF_NEWFONT ; $CDRF_NEWFONT must be returned after changing font or colors EndSwitch EndSwitch EndSwitch Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc
  2. Hello, it has been a long time since I have posted here I am working on an AutoIt project where I need to enable to user to interactively choose any point or coordinate on the screen... something like a big overlay where the user can click anywhere on the screen to select that point. @UEZ's screenshot tool may have something similar to what I need: I just checked the source code for the tool and I see that the Mark_Area function has a part in selecting the area to screenshot, I tried to figure out how it works but it is simply too complex and long... So I was wondering if there were any examples of interactively selecting points on a screen? Maybe an UDF that I can just use in my script to make the whole thing a matter of adding few lines Thank you for the replies in advance!
  3. Hi, here are few functions for the ListBox. I have searched the forum, but most of the functions are for listview, so i took one example code from melba23 (clear selection) and wrote few more functions. (Because my current project needs them). These functions work only on a Multi-selection ListBox . Edit: Only 1 function does not work with single selection box. The functions do: Clear Selection, Delete Selected items, Invert Selection, Move selected items up and down. The example code has 2 Listboxes. The selected items on the left ListBox can be moved up and down. The right Listbox has buttons for the other functions. #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListBox.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $singlesel = 0, $iMsgBoxAnswer = 0 ;MsgBox features: Title=Yes, Text=Yes, Buttons=Yes and No, Icon=Question, Modality=Task Modal $iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(8228, "Choose Listbox selecton type", "Yes for single, No for multi selection box") If $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 Then $singlesel = 1 ;Yes Local $BL_1,$BL_2,$BR_1,$BR_2,$BR_3,$BR_4,$BR_5,$BR_6 Global $hForm1 = GUICreate("Listbox test", 349, 287) $LB_1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 6, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $LBS_MULTIPLESEL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) If $singlesel = 1 Then $LB_2 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 179, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) Else $LB_2 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 179, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $LBS_MULTIPLESEL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) $BR_3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Reverse Sel", 272, 22, 68, 17) EndIf $BL_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Up", 20, 3, 35, 18) $BL_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Down", 60, 3, 35, 18) $BR_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Up", 200, 3, 35, 18) $BR_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Down", 240, 3, 35, 18) $BR_4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Clear Sel", 217, 22, 52, 17) $BR_5 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 175, 22, 40, 17) $BR_6 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Populate", 290, 3, 50, 18) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) For $x = 0 To 50 If $x <= 10 Then GUICtrlSetData($LB_1, $x & " test", 0) GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, $x & " Test", 0) Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $BL_1 $a = Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_1, -1) If $a > -1 Then WinSetTitle($hForm1, "", "Moved items: " & $a) Case $BL_2 $a = Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_1, 1) If $a > -1 Then WinSetTitle($hForm1, "", "Moved items: " & $a) Case $BR_1 Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_2, -1) Case $BR_2 Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_2, 1) Case $BR_3 Listbox_ReverseSelection($LB_2) Case $BR_4 Listbox_ClearSelection($LB_2) Case $BR_5 Listbox_DeleteSelectedItems($LB_2) Case $BR_6 ;Populate GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, "") ; Clears the listbox For $x = 0 To 50 GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, $x & " Test", 0) Next EndSwitch WEnd ;note $hLB_ID - is the Listbox id Func Listbox_DeleteSelectedItems($hLB_ID) Local $aSel = _GUICtrlListBox_GetSelItems($hLB_ID) ;Get selected items Local $i, $slb = 0, $y, $x If $aSel[0] = 0 Then ;If the array is empty, there is no selection, or it is a single selection listbox For $x = 0 To _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($hLB_ID) - 1 $y = _GUICtrlListBox_GetSel($hLB_ID, $x) If $y = True Then $slb = 1 _GUICtrlListBox_DeleteString($hLB_ID, $x) ;Perform a delete on single sel.

  4. 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
  5. I'm using the excellent _Excel UDF to read a whole spreadsheet into an array I want to operate on. I can read a specified range without a problem. What I'd like to do is allow the user in Excel to select a range (contiguous is fine) and be able to read that range so that I know what range to operate on without having the user input the range via a keyboard. I'm stuck and any hints greatly appreciated. The code below uses the Helpfile .xls to illustrate where I crash. ; #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y ; use this to debug in console window <--- LOOK #include <Excel.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Debug.au3> ;for _DebugArrayDisplay $sExcelFullFileName = "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Examples\Helpfile\Extras\_Excel1.xls" ;use Autoit test for example $oExcel = _Excel_Open() ;Create application object and open an Excel workbook $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sExcelFullFileName) $aExcelArray = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default) _DebugArrayDisplay($aExcelArray, $aExcelArray) ;let's look at it $aI5K6 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default,"I5:K6") ;read a rangeI5:K6 and return value _DebugArrayDisplay($aI5K6, $aI5K6) ;let's look at range it ;rather than defining the range explicity I'd like to read the selection in Excel and use it ;need a function like _Excel_SelectionRead ;try hacking Excel.au3 _Excel_RangeRead to see if can create _Excel_SelectionRead looks like .Selection .Value .Text and .Address possible MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Info", "Select cells in Excel then click OK") ;ACTUALLY get range of the selection and this will suffice for us to use on the $aExcelArray $vRange = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Selection.Address($vRange) ;tried all sorts of permutations and clearly I need help _DebugArrayDisplay($vRange, $vRange) ;let's look at range it ;$vResult = $oExcel.Transpose($vRange.Value) ;_DebugArrayDisplay($vResult, $vResult) ;let's look at range it _Excel_Close($oExcel, False, True) Exit
  6. So I'm needing a (better) way to get the selection in an edit control, while knowing which end of the selection is active vs anchor (ie, if you're holding shift while moving with the arrow keys, which end of the selection is moving and which is not). Since _GUICtrlEdit_GetSel() only returns the start and end positions, in the order of smallest to largest, if you were to pass that back to the _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel(), the user's selection could end up "backwards". My solution has been this function: Func _GUICtrlEdit_GetSelByAnchor($hWnd) ; Get selection range with anchor in first index If Not IsHWnd($hWnd) Then $hWnd = GUICtrlGetHandle($hWnd) Local $aActive, $aSelection = _GUICtrlEdit_GetSel($hWnd) ; Get base selection If $aSelection[0] <> $aSelection[1] Then ; Only proceed if actual selection range _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($hWnd, -1, 0) ; Deselect, leaving only the active point $aActive = _GUICtrlEdit_GetSel($hWnd) ; Record the active point If $aActive[0] = $aSelection[0] Then ; If the active point is equal to the original first index ; Swap the original selection points (putting the anchor in [0] and active in [1]) $aSelection[0] = $aSelection[1] $aSelection[1] = $aActive[0] EndIf _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($hWnd, $aSelection[0], $aSelection[1]) ; Reset selection to the original points EndIf Return $aSelection EndFunc The problem with this, as you may have already guessed from the two SetSel calls, is that calling it in a tight loop causes a lot of flickering. Is there a better, more reliable way to do what I'm looking for?
  7. Hey I have a GUI with an edit-field and a button. First I write some text into the edit-field and select a part of it. After that I press the button, and the selection is edited. How would I do that, though? When the text is selected and I press the button, it's unselected before the button actually raises an event.
  8. Hi, I just started recently with AutoIT and I am trying to make two dropdownlists where the selectable values of the second dropdownlist will be depending on what is selected on the first one. For example: Dropdown 1 Dropdown 2 xxx => 01-15 ("01" , "02" ,"03" , ...) yyy => a - f ("a" , "b" ,"c" ,"d" ,"e" ,"f" ) zzz => "new", "old", "spare" I started with this code that I've found in this Forum: #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ; Here is the array Global $aArray[6] = ["SORT", "PCM", "UNIF", "KKE", "GMS", "CDY"] ; And here we get the elements into a list $sList = "" For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1 $sList &= "|" & $aArray[$i] Next ; Create a GUI #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> $hGUI = GUICreate("DropDown", 500, 500) ; Create the combo $hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20) ; And fill it GUICtrlSetData($hCombo, $sList) GUISetState() While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Any idea how to start on this one... thanks upfront
  9. I'm stuck on how to use for range selection .Cells function. Instead of _Excel_RangeSort($oWorkbook, Default, Default, "AD:AD", Default, Default, $xlYes, False, Default, "AE:AE", Default, "L:L", Default)and $aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, "S2:AB" & $iRows)which works properly I want to use Cells to select the range. Why? Because the Excel sheet was modified and an additional row was inserted. I want to create the script more dynamically by selection it with Cells because I can search for the column headers. Any idea? Thanks.
  10. Hi I'm struggling to clear the display text of of a GUI control combo selection string. I would like to clear the selection like it is clear after it is populated, but not remove any items from the list. Here is a small example. #include <GuiComboBox.au3> #include <ComboConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ; Create GUI $hgui= guicreate("Clear ComboBox Edit Text", 320, 200) $control_combo= guictrlcreatecombo("", 10, 10, 250, 20, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST) $control_clear_button= guictrlcreatebutton("Reset Blank Combo Selection String", 10, 40, 200, 20) guisetstate() guictrlsetdata($control_combo, "a|b|c"); Populate Combo while 1 switch guigetmsg() case $control_clear_button guictrlsetdata($control_combo, ""); This clears the entire list frustrating me case $gui_event_close exitloop endswitch;guigetmsg() wend;main loopDoes anyone one know how I can reset the selection to "", clear, empty set?I've tried SetEditText but doesn't work CBS_DROPDOWNLIST. SOLVED: Sorry I thought I had tried this: _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCurSel($control_combo, -1) is the solution.
  11. so my script was made to load drivers based on a selection from a combo box. i've created a VERY robust system to load drivers when imaging with wds or ghost using a winPE wim. WDS does not work correctly with injected drivers. so comes into play my script/program that loads from a winPE wim after wds loads. anyone knows WDS is pretty powerful but it does not always have proper drivers once the winPE loads. so my program loads drivers into winPE based on the model / device. so if we get a new model of laptop or desktop and we want to save up that image to wds we find 32bit drivers and we load them into my program. wds then in turn loads my winPE with my program set to autolaunch and presenting all these options. if winPE contained a generic driver then all is good. if not then we go through my list and usually one of the drivers does work but in case it doesn't we add to my list. that's just the pre-amble incase anyone asks what i'm doing. reminder that this has worked flawlessly for the better part of a year. but now with more devices it's getting cumbersome to manually edit my code, then compile, then mount edit and recompile the winPE wim and inject my autoit program into it. takes a maximum of 5 minutes but when you're constantly testing it gets VERY bad. here's a snippet of the array for the combobox. Local $aList[300][2] = [["___________", "___________"], _ ["ASUS", "ASUS"], _ ["HP Probook 4430s", "HP Probook 4430s"], _ ["Lenovo S10-3", "Lenovo S10-3"], _ ["Lenovo x200/x230", "Lenovo x200/x230"], _ so this populates a combo box that lists these entries. i use a case select to determine which box was selected. very manual editing when i need to add another device. Func selection() $sSel = GUICtrlRead($cb_platform) $iIndex = _ArraySearch($aList, $sSel) Select Case $iIndex = 1 ;~ ASUS $driver = (@scriptdir & "\drivers\hp32\Netrtl32.inf") $nothing = $option Case $iIndex = 2 ;~ HP Probook 4430s $driver = (@scriptdir & "\drivers\hp4430\hp86win7.inf") $nothing = $option Case $iIndex = 3 ;~ Lenovo S10-3 $driver = (@scriptdir & "\drivers\lenovos103\Netrtl32.inf") $nothing = $option EndFunc this is the part of the script which i'm trying to revamp. right now my script works very awesome for what we're doing. however i want it more streamlined. as you can see once a combobox selection is selected, then it goes to that CASE and populates those variables then it kicks down to a function that i have that continues either ghost or wds depending on a selected radio box. this is what i have now for the array for the combobox. $drivers_folder=_FileListToArray(@scriptdir & "\drivers\","*",2) $cb_platform = GUICtrlCreateCombo("",10,40,600,120,-1,-1) For $i=1 To Ubound($drivers_folder)-1 GUICtrlSetData($cb_platform,$drivers_folder[$i]) Next this populates the combox based on the folder i have with each individual device. instead of creating a long winded array. the problem i have now is i don't know how to make it load the driver within that folder without a case select. i was thinking maybe something that got the name of the folder selected, then appended a "*.inf" at the end to load. but i'm totally in the dark of how to do this. if you'd like me to post all my code to help, please let me know.
  12. I wrote a routine that collects data from window by double-clicking a specific address and copying the selection to the clipboard. The cliboard contents then go to an array as a new element. I need a way to send the selection directly to the array without copying it to the clipboard (to save resources). $text = WinGetText("[MyWindow]", "") does not work because the window is from a legacy database run in a mainframe. Here is a sample of my code: ; move and size the window WinMove("MyWindow", "", Default, Default, 800, 500) MouseClick("", 489, 129, 2) ; Copy the selected text Send("{CTRLDOWN}{INS}{CTRLUP}") $XLArrayMyText = (_ClipBoard_GetData()) I would like to get rid of the last two lines and make the selection an array element without copying it into the clipboard. I have not found this topic in the forum. Thank you.
