#1 ·  Posted (edited)

within a for loop, i prompt for a credential login. (which is a guicreate)

if the user leaves the prompt on without logging in, the for loop continues to the next item

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $pc, $array[3], $credentials_child, $netsupport_login_successful = False

$array[0] = "1"
$array[1] = "2"
$array[1] = "3"

For $x = 1 to UBound($array) - 1

    $pc = $array[$x]

    If $netsupport_login_successful = False Then
        Netsupport_Prompt()
    Else
        Netsupport_Login()
    EndIf

Next

Func Netsupport_Prompt()

    If WinExists("Netsupport Buddy Login") Then
        MsgBox(262144, "Dashboard", "Already running Netsupport Buddy Login.")
        Return
    EndIf

    $credentials_child = GUICreate("Netsupport Buddy Login", 265, 90, -1, -1, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)

    $username_input = GUICtrlCreateInput(@UserName, 5, 5, 200, 20)
    $password_input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 5, 30, 200, 20, $ES_PASSWORD)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $gui_focus)

    $OK_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 210, 5, 40, 20)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Netsupport_Login")

    $CANCEL_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 210, 30, 40, 20)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "DEL_credentials_child")

    GUISetState()

EndFunc   ;==>Netsupport_Prompt

func DEL_credentials_child()
    exit
EndFunc

Func Netsupport_Login()
    $netsupport_login_successful = True
    MsgBox(0,"",$pc)
EndFunc   ;==>Netsupport_Login

while 1
    sleep(10)
WEnd

And the question is?


Scripts & functions Organize Includes Let Scite organize the include files

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

MultipleFuncsWithOneHotkey Start different funcs by hitting one hotkey different times

The "code" posted doesn't make sense. It won't even pass AutoIt check, and it does serve no purpose.

What is the point of setting up a GUI if you don't get anything from it?

The For loop has syntax error.

Your test is hanging in the sky.

Other function is missing.

So what?

sorry sometimes i try not to post too long of a code otherwise folks might not bother to read.

i have revised my script in my post ABOVE to better illustrate my point - again sorry about that.

my question is: the array goes through the first record and prompts for a password if authentication has not been provided but if the user does not enter their credentials right away, the for loop continues anyway. i want the loop to stop until the user has entered his/her credentials

so when i call the function within the loop, is there a way i can make it wait until the user has entered credentials?

i thought maybe in the way i call the function it could be done (but runwait seems to be only for EXEs or files)

or i can use a condition

if $netsupport_login_successful = true then continueloop

but what if its false?

do

sleep

until $netsupport_login_successful = True

wont that tie up the script from the user entering his credentials?

That's logical. Since you don't bother to even read what the user has entered, I hardly see how you can validate anything.

You need to GUICtrlGetData from your input controls and do something to validate what has been entered, e.g. perform loging in. If you find that, say, the password has been left blank, then you should probably avoid invoking

GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Netsupport_Login")

automatically!

Your mutilated script doesn't illustrate anything as it stands.

Show where you get the user input and what you do with hat data.

if you run this you will see what im getting at...

before the user can enter credentials into the GUI the for loop continues and another GUI tries to get created...

how can i do a Wait for Input in a for loop?

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiEdit.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $pc, $array[3], $credentials_child, $netsupport_login_successful = False

For $x = 0 to UBound($array) - 1

    $pc = $array[$x]

    If $netsupport_login_successful = False Then
        Netsupport_Prompt()
    Else
        Netsupport_Login()

Next

exit

gcue,

Just use the flag you already have as the condition for a While...WEnd loop:

Func Netsupport_Prompt()

    If WinExists("Netsupport Buddy Login") Then
        MsgBox(262144, "Dashboard", "Already running Netsupport Buddy Login.")
        Return
    EndIf

    $credentials_child = GUICreate("Netsupport Buddy Login", 265, 90, -1, -1, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)

    $username_input = GUICtrlCreateInput(@UserName, 5, 5, 200, 20)
    $password_input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 5, 30, 200, 20, $ES_PASSWORD)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $gui_focus)

    $OK_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 210, 5, 40, 20)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Netsupport_Login")

    $CANCEL_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 210, 30, 40, 20)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "DEL_credentials_child")

    GUISetState()

    While $netsupport_login_successful = False
        Sleep(10)
    WEnd

    ConsoleWrite("We are here because the log-in was successful" & @CRLF)

EndFunc   ;==>Netsupport_Prompt

Func Netsupport_Login()

    ; Errorcheck inputs
    If GUICtrlRead($username_input) = "" Or GUICtrlRead($password_input) = "" Then Return

    ; You only want to set this value to True IF the login was successful!!!!!
    $netsupport_login_successful = True
    ConsoleWrite($pc & @LF)
    GUIDelete($credentials_child)
EndFunc   ;==>Netsupport_Login

But as it says in the comment line, you MUST make sure your log-in is successful before you set the flag to True.

I hope this helps. :D
