GuiCtrlCreateInput not changing when I try to chang it [Solved]

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm having trouble with a Input box. I created it just fine and it populates properly when there is no data or there is data. The problem is later on when I try to change the value the text box doesn't change.

;File System Broswer for Target Path
$BrowseFileSystem = GUICtrlCreateButton("Browse", 280, 232, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
Local $BrowseFileSystemSelect = IniRead($Configure,"DVD Rip Output Path","Key", "Default")
    ;setting up for blank info
        If $BrowseFileSystemSelect = "" Then 
                $RipTargetPath = GUICtrlCreateInput("...", 16, 232, 257, 21)
    ;setting up for populated info
        Else
        $RipTargetPath = GUICtrlCreateInput($BrowseFileSystemSelect, 16, 232, 257, 21)
    EndIf

Here is where I call the changes but nothing happens as it doesn't redraw or change the text box above

Case $nMsg = $BrowseFileSystem
                $BrowseSelect = FileSelectFolder("Select the folder/drive where you want the DVD Rips stored.", "")
                IniWrite($Configure,"DVD Rip Output Path","Key",$BrowseSelect)
                Local $RipTargetPath = GUICtrlCreateInput($BrowseFileSystemSelect, 16, 232, 257, 21)

Thanks for taking a look.

norjms,

Do not recreate your input to change the text - just use GUICtrlSetData to change the text within the existing control. But read the Helpfile carefully as to how to format the data or you will just add to the text already there. :)

I must be missing something....

;File System Broswer for Target Path
$BrowseFileSystem = GUICtrlCreateButton("Browse", 280, 232, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
Local $BrowseFileSystemSelect = IniRead($Configure,"DVD Rip Output Path","Key", "Default")
    If $BrowseFileSystemSelect = "" Then
        $RipTargetPath = GUICtrlCreateInput("...", 16, 232, 257, 21)
    Else
        $RipTargetPath = GUICtrlCreateInput($BrowseFileSystemSelect, 16, 232, 257, 21)
    EndIf

Changed to GuiCtrlSetData

Case $nMsg = $BrowseFileSystem
                $BrowseSelect = FileSelectFolder("Select the folder/drive where you want the DVD Rips stored.", "")
                IniWrite($Configure,"DVD Rip Output Path","Key",$BrowseSelect)
                Local $BrowseFileSystemSelect = IniRead($Configure,"DVD Rip Output Path","Key", "Default")
                $RipTargetPath = GUICtrlSetData($BrowseFileSystemSelect,$RipTargetPath)

No idea here I'm quite new at this

norjms,

Looks like you have the syntax a little wrong:

$RipTargetPath = GUICtrlSetData($BrowseFileSystemSelect,$RipTargetPath)

$RipTargetPath is the ControlID returned when you created the Input control - you use that to identify the control to other commands.

When you look at GUICtrlSetData in the Helpfile you find the following syntax:

GUICtrlSetData ( controlID, data [, default] )

You need to put $RipTargetPath as the ControlID (so AutoIt knows where to put the data!) and then whatever you need as data. You can ignore the final parameter as it only affects Combo and List controls.

So I would imagine your seocnd snippet should read:

Case $nMsg = $BrowseFileSystem
    ; Get the folder to use
    $BrowseSelect = FileSelectFolder("Select the folder/drive where you want the DVD Rips stored.", "")
    ; Save it to the ini file
    IniWrite($Configure,"DVD Rip Output Path","Key",$BrowseSelect)
    ; Change the input box text
    GUICtrlSetData($RipTargetPath, $BrowseSelect) ; Note syntax
    ; Not sure if you need this line, it depends on whether you want this variable set to the new  folder
    Local $BrowseFileSystemSelect = $BrowseSelect

    ; But there is certainly no point in re-reading the value from the ini file!!!
    ; Local $BrowseFileSystemSelect = IniRead($Configure,"DVD Rip Output Path","Key", "Default")

I hope this helps. If anything is unclear, please ask. If you need more help, it might be better to post a bit more code - trying to work off 2 small snippets is a bit limiting! :)

Thank You it worked great last question would I use the same method for guictrlcreatepic? Trying to use little leds to show what options are enabled. i.e create the the gui portion then add the guictrlsetdata to the case strings?

norjms,

From the Help file for GUICtrlCreatePic:

"To update the picture after the dialog box is displayed just use GUICtrlSetImage"

It is a wonderful resource, you know! :)
