What am I doing wrong? (

Recommended Posts

mdb

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm totally new to AutoIt and just playing around with making a GUI, I took out a lot of the code I have to get help with this specific issue. I'm not sure if theres any better way to do what I'm trying to do. Basically I just want the thing to exit when I click Exit in the menu, but its just not doing that :(. At first Main() didn't exist, as I tried to do this outside of a Function and it wasn't working. Now inside of one, and it still isn't working. I'm not really sure which way is easier when you get into lengthy programs. Should I even use Select? I tried it without that, and it just wasn't working, so I decided to add it in, and it still isn't working. Even tried to ignore the function and just put 'Exit 0' in there.. Same outcome.

I know someone is going to facepalm and tell me to use search, but I don't even know where to begin.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
GuiCreate("Test", 280,100)
HotKeySet ("{F1}", "Terminate")

Main()
GuiSetState()
While GuiGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
WEnd

Func Main()
    $menu = GuiCtrlCreateMenu("Menu")
    $terminate = GuiCtrlCreateMenuItem("Exit",$menu)
EndFunc

Func terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc

Thanks a bunch for reading >_<

((Deleted even more garbage coding))

mdb,

First, welcome to the AutoIt forums.

Reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. You should also look at the excellent tutorials that you will find here and here.

As to your code, it just needs a bit of tidying:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

HotKeySet ("{F1}", "Terminate")

GuiCreate("Test", 280,100)

$menu = GuiCtrlCreateMenu("Menu")
$terminate = GuiCtrlCreateMenuItem("Exit", $menu)

GuiSetState()

While 1

    $msg = GuiGetMsg()

    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $msg = $terminate
            terminate()
    EndSelect
WEnd

Func terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc

Read the Help file, wotk through the tutorials and all will become much clearer! >_<

Thanks a bunch for that. I'll check out the GUI Reference in the help file to see if it has more information on what I need.
