Check toolbar button programmatically

6 posts in this topic

_GUICtrlToolbar_CheckButton() does the job, but:

WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
receives no signal.

Furthermore, using:

_SendMessage($hMain, $WM_COMMAND, $iCmd)
WM_COMMAND receives the signal, but the button remains unchecked.

Is there any other chance besides combining the two commands?

Thanks

Hi PsaltyDS,

I'm trying to produce (programmaticaly) a click on a dual state button ($BTNS_CHECK),

get the relative message, then start an appropriate function in response.

Hi PsaltyDS,

Post a short demo script that can be run, or modify the one I posted, to reproduce your conditions.

:)

                    EndIf
                Case Else
                    ConsoleWrite("_WM_NOTIFY():  Undefined code received from $hToolbar; code = " & $code & " (0x" & Hex($code, 8) & ")" & @LF)
            EndSwitch
    EndSwitch
    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc   ;==>_WM_NOTIFY

Func _ButtonHit()
    ConsoleWrite("_ButtonHit():  Button clicked" & @LF)
    Local $iState = _GUICtrlToolbar_IsButtonChecked($hToolbar, $idHelp)
    $iState = Not $iState
    ;_GUICtrlToolbar_CheckButton($hToolbar, $idHelp, $iState)
    _SendMessage($hToolbar, $TB_CHECKBUTTON, $idHelp, $iState)
EndFunc   ;==>_ButtonHit

Func _Close()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Close

Both methods change the checked state (uncomment either _GuiCtrlToolbar_CheckButton or _SendMessage inside the _ButtonHit function), but neither fires the TBN_HOTITEMCHANGE message. They DO send a WM_NOTIFY with code = -12 (0xFFFFFFF4), so you could detect that something happened. I don't know what the named definition of that code is. It's not included in ToolbarConstants.au3.

:)

P.S. Outside of looking for the WM_NOTIFY message, you can statically check the state any time with _GUICtrlToolbar_IsButtonChecked(). Updated demo to use that method for toggling the state.
