Press X on subform witout closing out main script

4 posts in this topic

Hello, I know this is probably a VERY small and simple script. I just cant find what I am looking for. I found Winclose in the help file and of course exit. But neither is what i am looking for.

I am trying to be able to have it where I can click the "X" at the top right hand of the window and it will not close out or exit the subform (maybe there is a way to make it where it Show.Hide it?). I have it where the main form is shown at all times, unless of course the user clicks on the "X" :)

Anyone know how to do this?

An AutoIt GUI doesn't close when you click "X". It just sends the $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE message to GuiGetMsg(). If your message loop doesn't do anything with that, then nothing happens when you click it. Find the part of your loop that looks like this:

$msg = GuiGetMsg()
Switch $msg
     Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
          Exit
     Case $SomeOtherButton
          _DoSomethingElse()
EndSwitch

Just take out/change the action for $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE.

:)

This is what I have:

Case -3
            Exit

so I should change this back to $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE huh?

-------------EDIT---------------

OUTSTANDING, it WORKS!

I did this for anyone interested:

Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $a)
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $b)
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $c)
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $d)
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $e)
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $f)
            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Main_script)

This event upon clicking the "X" at the top, will hide all subforms currently open and will make sure that the main form is shown.

Thanks again!
