GUI with "File > Edit > View...." Menu

Recommended Posts

I'm curious how to make the common drop down links that most programs have, such as "File > Edit > View> Help" etc...

Also, witht he GUI that I have, the "x" that should close the program (in top right) does not seem to work. How can I make it function.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI menu",300,200)

Global $defaultstatus = "Ready"
Global $status

$filemenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("&File")
$fileitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Open",$filemenu)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DEFBUTTON)
$helpmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("?")
$saveitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Save",$filemenu)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)
$infoitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Info",$helpmenu)
$exititem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Exit",$filemenu)
$recentfilesmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("Recent Files",$filemenu,1)

$separator1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("",$filemenu,2)   ; create a separator line

$viewmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("View",-1,1) ; is created before "?" menu
$viewstatusitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Statusbar",$viewmenu)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_CHECKED)
$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("OK",50,130,70,20)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)
$cancelbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Cancel",180,130,70,20)

$statuslabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel ($defaultstatus,0,165,300,16,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))

GUISetState ()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $fileitem Then
        $file = FileOpenDialog("Choose file...",@TempDir,"All (*.*)")
        If @error <> 1 Then GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ($file,$recentfilesmenu)
    EndIf 
    If $msg = $viewstatusitem Then
        If BitAnd(GUICtrlRead($viewstatusitem),$GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
            GUICtrlSetState($viewstatusitem,$GUI_UNCHECKED)
            GUICtrlSetState($statuslabel,$GUI_HIDE)
        Else
            GUICtrlSetState($viewstatusitem,$GUI_CHECKED)
            GUICtrlSetState($statuslabel,$GUI_SHOW)
        EndIf
    EndIf
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $cancelbutton Or $msg = $exititem Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $infoitem Then Msgbox(0,"Info","Only a test...")
WEnd
GUIDelete()

Exit

I think you need one of the latest BETA's.

I have whatever the latest AutoIt version is.... just got few days ago... I have the following:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("test gui", 180, 150)
GUISetState ()

$menuFile = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("&File")
$menuAbout = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("&About")
$itemExit = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("E&xit",$menuFile)
$itemAbout = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("About Us",$menuAbout)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $itemExit Then ExitLoop
Wend
GUIDelete()
Exit

However, the exit button doesn't seem to work... this still goes for the "X" button in the top right as well.

Works fine here. Exactly what autoit version do you have?

I'm using 3.1.1.0... hmmm it seems that other script that I didnt' bother mentioning is screwing it up.

While $complete = 0
  $pixelMiss = 0
  $pixelFound = 0
  If $detectLast = "Left" Then
    detectLeft()
    If $pixelFound = 0 Then
      detectRight()
    EndIf
  ElseIf $detectLast = "Right" Then
    detectRight()
    If $pixelFound = 0 Then
      detectLeft()
    EndIf
  ElseIf $detectLast = "" Then
    detectLeft()
    If $pixelFound = 0 Then
      detectRight()
    EndIf
  EndIf
 ; Detection for NONE
  If $pixelMiss > 1 Then
    GUICtrlSetData($positionDetected,"...")
    GUICtrlSetData($currentAction,"...")
    $detectLast = ""
    Sleep(50)
  EndIf
WEnd

If I have $complete set to "0".... then the exit features do not work.... can the script not exit while performing a loop? How can I change it to work even while this is running.

if your using both of your posted scripts in one script, then when $complete = 0 then its going into another loop where its not polling 4 events.. so add this to the last thing you posted..

$get = GUIGetMsg()
If $get = -3 then exit

then it will poll 4 events :)

Can you please tell me why a -3 is used... if I can understand that, maybe I will be able to do it myself in the future when I have more code in the file as well.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

-3 is the value that AutoIt arbitrarily uses to represent the window closing event.

It's much better to put #include <GUIConstants.au3> at the beginning of your script

and use the variable $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

(just in case the AutoIt developer would decide to change -3 to another value)

Still doesn't work.. I'm guessing because while my program is running... unless I disable the point of the whole script, it never even makes it to the lines

$get = GUIGetMsg()

If $get = -3 then exit

This is because its stuck in a loop above these lines of code.
