GetMsg for close GUI, or to set constant

Recommended Posts


I am brand-new to GUI's, and I know there must be an answer to this somewhere on this forum but I can't find it! What I want to do is create a GUI with 5 radio buttons, each of which will set a variable to a different string. When the GUI is closed, the variable, if already set, will stay set. I have this, based on the AutoIt Help example:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Local $msg

$numberrange = ""

GUICreate ("Number Range")

$radio1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("7000001 - 7500000", 10, 10, 120, 20)

$radio2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("7500001 - 8000000", 10, 40, 120, 20)

$radio3 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("8000001 - 8500000", 10, 70, 120, 20)

$radio4 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("8500001 - 9000000", 10, 100, 120, 20)

$radio5 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("9000001 - 9500000", 10, 130, 120, 20)


While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()


Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


Case $msg = $radio1 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($radio1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED

$numberrange = "Range A"

Case $msg = $radio2 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($radio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED

$numberrange = "Range B"

Case $msg = $radio3 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($radio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED

$numberrange = "Range C"

Case $msg = $radio4 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($radio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED

$numberrange = "Range D"

Case $msg = $radio5 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($radio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED

$numberrange = "Range E"


The problem is that even if the user selects one of the radio buttons, if they later go to close the window, the variable is not saved. How do I fix this? Most grateful for any suggestions!
