Gui compiles clean , but no output

14 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Greetings...

This pgm "FileWriteLog_vm.au3" compiles clean , but no output.

It includes a pgm (below) "FileWriteLog_vm_inc.au3" , and Compiler output.

1) Any idea why no output?

2) This is probably NOT the fastest way to pgm it, all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks..vm

vmars,

Firstly, if you post code, please use Code tags. Put [autoit ] before and [/autoit ] after your posted code (but omit the trailing space - it is only there so the tags display here).

Secondly, look carefully at your code. You create a GUI and then want to wait until a button is pressed. Question - where do you wait? Answer - nowhere at the moment, as there are only functions after the GUISetState() line, so the script exits as soon as the GUI is displayed - as shown by the identical times for starting and ending when you run:

+>17:39:50 AU3Check ended.rc:0
>Running:(3.3.0.0):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe 

"C:\Users\*****\Documents\AutoIt3\Examples\Helpfile\FileWriteLog_vm.au3" 
+>17:39:50 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0

You need a loop of some sort to keep your GUI in existence:

While 1
    Sleep(10) ; Very important or you eat CPU cycles
WEnd

Thirdly - do you do realise all your buttons are in the same place? And I would strongly advise a GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE,"close_function") line in there too. >_<

Ah, Thanks very much!

I cleaned up all that stuff, and now it Runs, but:

As soon as i click on a Button (CLOSE), i get the followint error:

I suspect that the prob is with these variabled,

;Global $vmLogFileName, $vmLogFileAction, $vmLogThisMsg

Declared in FileWriteLog_vmFunc() as Global (see FileWriteLog_vmFunc(), on initial Post).

Func closeButton()

ConsoleWrite('@@ (69) >_<' & @MIN & ':' & @SEC & ') closeButton()' & @CR) ;### Function Trace

$vmLogFileName = "DebugLog.txt"

$vmLogFileAction = "close"

$vmLogThisMsg = "close"

FileWriteLog_vmFunc()

ConsoleWrite('@@ (74) :(' & @MIN & ':' & @SEC & ') ()' & @CR) ;### Function Trace

vmars,

The problem is in your FileWriteLog_vm_inc.au3 file.

The simple solution is to declare $file as a Global variable. But there is another way which also offers a better solution.

At present your functions contains the following:

If $vmLogFileAction = "open" Then
        $file = FileOpen($vmLogFileName, 1)
        $vmLogFileAction = "opened"
EndIf

; Check if file opened for writing OK
If $file = -1 Then
    $vmLogThisMsg = "openError"
    Exit
EndIf

Look at that code carefully. Can you see that it will run the check lines even if you did not try to open a file? You need to put the check inside first If section. But you can make the whole section much clearer by using a Switch structure instead of the multiple Ifs:

Switch $vmLogFileAction
    Case "open"
        $file = FileOpen($vmLogFileName, 1)
        ; Check if file opened for writing OK
        If $file = -1 Then
            $vmLogThisMsg = "openError"
            Exit
        EndIf
        $vmLogFileAction = "opened"
    Case "write"
        FileWrite($file, $vmLogThisMsg & @CRLF)
        $vmLogFileAction = "written"
    Case "close"
        FileClose($file)
        $vmLogFileAction = "closed"
        Exit
EndSwitch

You still need to declare $file as Global, by the way!

Yes, i do see, and Thanks very much!

Another problem though:

I want to change the color of BackGround of GUICtrlCreateGroup.

I have tried all sorts of combinations, but am still unsuccessful.

Thanks for your help!..vm

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

;Global $vmLogFileName, $vmLogFileAction, $vmLogThisMsg ;

$Form1 = GUICreate("Test FileWriteLog_vm.au3", 683, 170, 260, 145)

;

$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 8, 32, 665, 73)

GUICtrlSetBkColor($Group1, 0xFFD8D8) ; (-1, 0x3A6EA5) (-1, 0xFFD8D8)

;

$hButton1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("create", 88, 57, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")

GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)

GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x800000)

$hButton2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("open", 232, 57, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)

vmars,

When I did the Search for "+GUISetBkColor +group +control" that you could (should?) have done for yourself, I found this.

Ah yes, i spent ~ 1+ hour searching. Didn't find .

But did find post='657660'] .

So my code now looks like:

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
;Global $vmLogFileName, $vmLogFileAction, $vmLogThisMsg ;
$Form1 = GUICreate("Test FileWriteLog_vm.au3", 683, 170, 260, 145)
GUISetBkColor(0x0E2765, $Form1); (0xA0A0A0)
GUICtrlCreateGraphic(11, 38, 664, 66)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFD8D8); (-1, 0x3A6EA5)  (-1, 0xFFD8D8)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 8, 32, 665, 73)
;
$hButton1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("create", 88, 57, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)

So, i learned that i can't Color a 'GUICtrlCreateGroup' .

Can i also conclude that since GUICtrlCreateGraphic is coded before GUICtrlCreateGroup,

that GUICtrlCreateGroup is Transparent, and will show the color underneath it?

That's interesting!

Thanks..vm

ps: Oh, more about the search. What i searched for was 'GUICtrlSetBkColor'.

Also, when i searched for your "+GUISetBkColor +group +control" what came back was a search for just GUISetBkColor. It appeard it had dropped the "+GUISetBkColor".

Thanks..vm

Oh Bother;

Now since i made last changes, screen is pretty, but Bottons don't work.

I probably got things in the wrong order.

When i press a Button, there is no Button behavior, no push and pop.

How can i wake-up the Buttons?

Could someone take a look at code and see what's up?

Thanks..vm

vmars,

From the Help file for GUICtrlCreateGraphic:

"Graphic control can be clicked so they should not overlap with other controls. If overlap is needed it is important to disable the graphic control : GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)."

This is often the reason buttons, etc stop working - and from your code it looks as if the graphic overlaps the button! >_<

Go look in the Help file - you will find the answer in the example on the GUICtrlCreateGroup page. >_< It is quite amazing how often that very useful, but sadly much-underused, resource can provide the solution.......

Ah yes, i did find this one line with a comment.

"GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1) ;close group "

So, does that mean, for every Group, there needs to be a corresponding "close group"?

It didn't seem to matter where i put the close group.

But i put it after the last BUTTON that visually lies within the Group.

Anyways, the HELP document. Yes, i consult it all the time. But its not always apparent what is important at first reading. I am happy to admit that the AutoIt3 Help, is the best Help document that i have ever seen. Click on the 'Open this script' button and script pops up in Scite.

Is that the correct positioning?

Thanks..vm

vmars,

Yes, you need to close each group with that statement - preferably just after the last control in the group. Remember that you can have several groups within the same script and you need to tell Autoit what controls are in which group - it cannot read your mind.

Apologies if I sounded a little harsh about the Help file yesterday - nothing personal >_< .
