I'm using ANYGUI code created my quaizywabbit to create a control in my gui but I can't figure out a way to handle that control when i right click on the context menu and click the menuitem i want it to close the program but it doesn't?

#include <guiconstants.au3>
#include <anygui.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("GUI", 377, 377)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("click me", 70, 277, 70)
GUISetState()


While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $msg[0]
        Case $button
            Test()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Test()
    $target = _GuiTarget ("GUI")
    $pic = _TargetAddButton("Test", 77, 77, 77, 77, -1, -1, $target)
    $pic = $pic[0]

    $menu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($pic)
    $item1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("me",$menu)
    GUISetState()
EndFunc

You can do it using event mode:

#include <guiconstants.au3>
#include <anygui.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$gui = GUICreate("GUI", 377, 377)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Close")
GUICtrlCreateButton("click me", 70, 277, 70)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Test")
GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(20)
WEnd

Func _Close()
    GUIDelete($gui)
    Exit
EndFunc

Func Test()
    $target = _GuiTarget ("GUI")
    $pic = _TargetAddButton("Test", 77, 77, 77, 77, -1, -1, $target)
    $pic = $pic[0]

    $menu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($pic)
    $item1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("me",$menu)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_me")
    GUISetState()
EndFunc
 
 Func _me()
     ConsoleWrite("Clicked me" & @CRLF)
EndFunc

..or using some buggy code:

#include <guiconstants.au3>
#include <anygui.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("GUI", 377, 377)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("click me", 70, 277, 70)
GUISetState()

$item1 = -1 ; 0 will not do because it'll match the msg  of the GUIGetMsg():


While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $msg[0]
        Case $button
            Test()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $item1
            ConsoleWrite("Clicked me" & @CRLF)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Test()
    $target = _GuiTarget ("GUI")
    $pic = _TargetAddButton("Test", 77, 77, 77, 77, -1, -1, $target)
    $pic = $pic[0]

    $menu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($pic)
    $item1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("me",$menu)
    GUISetState()
EndFunc

I'm sorry. I wasn't clear in my first place. I want to do something more than ConsoleWrite(). I want that menuitem being clicked on result in the deletion of that control. I tried putting in GUICtrlDelete($pic) but it didn't work, it deleted the entire GUI.

to delete a CONTROL use the function GUICtrlDelete($handle)

You created the controls in a function and so all the variables in there were Local variables since you didn't specify otherwise, so they can't be seen outside of the function.

Try

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n
#include <guiconstants.au3>
#include "G:\anygui\anygui.au3"

$gui = GUICreate("GUI", 377, 377)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("click me", 70, 277, 70)
GUISetState()

$item1 = -1 ; 0 will not do because it'll match the msg of the GUIGetMsg():
Global $target,$pic,$menu,$item1;<----- Global declaration so th evariables are available outside of the function

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $msg[0]
    Case $button
    Test()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Exit
    Case $item1
    ConsoleWrite("Clicked me" & @CRLF)
            GUISwitch($target)
            guictrldelete($item1);<------ deletes menu item
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Test()
    $target = _GuiTarget ("GUI")
    $pic = _TargetAddButton("Test", 77, 77, 77, 77, -1, -1, $target)
    $pic = $pic[0]

    $menu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($pic)
    $item1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("me",$menu)
    GUISetState()
EndFunc

Once again, awesome work. Thank you so much. :) Quick question though, I changed line 25 from $item1 to $pic so it would delete the button instead. The only thing I can't understand is why it will only create the button once. After I delete it one time it won't get re-created by clicking the "click me" button.

A simple changed but here's the code nonetheless:

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n
#include <guiconstants.au3>
#include <anygui.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("GUI", 377, 377)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("click me", 70, 277, 70)
GUISetState()

$item1 = -1 ; 0 will not do because it'll match the msg of the GUIGetMsg():
Global $target,$pic,$menu,$item1;<----- Global declaration so th evariables are available outside of the function

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $msg[0]
    Case $button
    Test()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Exit
    Case $item1
    ConsoleWrite("Clicked me" & @CRLF)
            GUISwitch($target)
            guictrldelete($pic);<------ deletes button
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Test()
    $target = _GuiTarget ("GUI")
    $pic = _TargetAddButton("Test", 77, 77, 77, 77, -1, -1, $target)
    $pic = $pic[0]

    $menu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($pic)
    $item1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("me",$menu)
    GUISetState()
EndFunc

The problem is that you need to study the anygui udf. ;)

When you create a button, a child window is created and the button is a control in that child window. So if you want to delete the button you have to delete the button and the child window. (Well ok, you could just delete the child window.) If you don't then a new child is created but it will be hidden by the old one.

By setting $pic = $pic[0] you have lost access to the child window whose handle was $pic[2] untill then. So the answer is don't so that. Leave the returned result from _TargetAddButton as an array then you can do what you want with it later.

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n
#include <guiconstants.au3>
#include "G:\anygui\anygui.au3"

$gui = GUICreate("GUI", 377, 377)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("click me", 70, 277, 70)
GUISetState()

Global $pic = -1, $menu = -1, $item1 = -1, $pic2 = -1;<----- Global declaration so th evariables are available outside of the function

Global $target = _GuiTarget("GUI");<--I moved this out of the function. You only need to create the $target once for a particular window.

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $msg[0]
    Case $button
    Test()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Exit
    Case $item1
    ConsoleWrite("Clicked me" & @CRLF)
    GUISwitch($target)
    ;GUICtrlDelete($pic[0]);<------ deletes button
    GUIDelete($pic[2])
    $pic = -1
    $menu = -1
    $item1 = -1
    EndSwitch
WEnd



Func Test()

    If $pic = -1 Then
    $pic = _TargetAddButton("Test", 77, 77, 77, 77, -1, -1, $target)
     GUISetState(); to show the newly created child window
    EndIf
    If $menu = -1 Then $menu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($pic[0])
    If $item1 = -1 Then $item1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("me", $menu)
 
EndFunc ;==>Test
