How to close a GUICreate window

Recommended Posts


I have a gui box pop up asking the user to pick a backup to restore out of a list of dirs in a folder. Everything works but the gui window

stays up after selecting the backup and clicking the button. What command is used to close the window and continue with the rest of the script

after the $button1 is pressed?

Thanks for any help.

$drv = InputBox("Drive letter","What drive do you want to restore from:", "e:\" )
$array=_FileListToArray($drv & "\backup")
$hwnd = GUICreate("restore", 301, 101, 192, 125)
$combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Select a backup to restore", 66, 20, 169, 25)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 114, 56, 73, 25, $WS_GROUP)
For $i=1 To Ubound($array)-1
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Case $Button1
$str = GUICtrlRead ( $combo )           

;end restore menu -----------------------

Try using the command GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hGUI)after the button is pressed - you will need to unhide it once you need the window again

also if it is in its own while/wend loop you will have to exitloop

With a handle like that - I am surprised you did! :huggles:

Try GUIDelete - sounds like it might be what you are looking for.

Did you skim through the Help file at all? It is one of the "Related" commands on the GUICreate page. :D
