GUI window shows list of software to install i want the process bar to move once each app has installed but i also want a big tick image to appear next to each app that has been just installed.

Welcome to the AutoIt forums madmorgan :)

You can create the icon with GuiCtrlCreateIcon, and you can show or hide it with GuiCtrlSetState. Read up about them in the help (and then read some more, especially the contents which would have let you find these things yourself.)

If you have any problems then post the code you're stuck with and you'll soon get help. But to learn you need to struggle before you ask for help IMO.

here is what im trying to get done. this is the code of the menu and i dont know how to make the process bar to work or even how to make the green tick appear on and off at the give time when the software has installed.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <ProgressConstants.au3>

#include <StaticConstants.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$app = ("avg9")

$app1 = ("ashampoo")

$app2 = ("ECT...")

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 222, 252, 210, 122)

$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Software Installer", 48, 8, 146, 24)

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")

$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("AVG 9", 16, 56, 35, 17)

$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Ashampoo Buring Studio 9", 16, 88, 129, 17)

$Pic1 = GUICtrlCreatePic("C:\Documents and Settings\Susan\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\EV1DD0K8\Green%20Tick[1].jpg", 64, 40, 36, 36, BitOR($SS_NOTIFY,$WS_GROUP,$WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)

$Pic2 = GUICtrlCreatePic("C:\Documents and Settings\Susan\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\EV1DD0K8\Green%20Tick[1].jpg", 160, 72, 36, 36, BitOR($SS_NOTIFY,$WS_GROUP,$WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Install", 16, 192, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)

$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 120, 192, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(40, 152, 150, 17)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1

$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()

Switch $nMsg

Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Exit

case $Button2

Exit

Case $Button1

install apps and update process bar and make green tick show after each app.

EndSwitch

WEnd

hop some one can look at this code and fill in the missing gaps.

thanks.

This sort of thing would do what you want

Case $Button1
            $NumberofApps = 2
            $AppsInstalled = 0
            guictrlsetstate($Button1,$GUI_DISABLE)
            RunWait($fullpathToAVGexe)
            $AppsInstalled += 1
            GUICtrlSetState($Pic1,$GUI_SHOW)
            GUICtrlSetData($Progress1,100*$AppsInstalled/$NumberofApps)
;next app etc

But it's a bit long winded. It would be better to have the app information in an array so that you could loop through them all in a few lines. Then when you have to add another app you only need to add the extra info to the array and there is no extra code to write.

It is easier to read code in a post if you enclose it in tags; either [aito it]..[/auto it] or [c ode]..[/c ode] but without the space I added to stop the tags working.

That's good.

BTW, you missed the last part of this line

It is easier to read code in a post if you enclose it in tags; either [aito it]..[/auto it] or [c ode]..[/c ode] but without the space I added to stop the tags working.

That is, I put a space in so that you would be able to see what I wrote, but you need to leave the space out.
