GUI Window Won't Close

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm having a bit of trouble with a script I'm working on, I'm using a function to create a GUI and for some reason it won't close (by the X on title bar, by Alt+F4, by the task bar, or by right-clicking on the window). The only way I can get the GUI to close is by closing the script.

I want to know if there is something I can do to fix this.

Func _AGUI()
GuiCreate("TITLE", 273, 475)
GuiSetIcon(@SystemDir & "\mspaint.exe", 0)
GuiCtrlCreatePic("pic.jpg",0,0, 273,475)
GuiSetState()
EndFunc

Is it your complete script or this is a only snippet from it?

I need for complete script for understand what`s going on your script.

Just like Sh3llC043r said, we need to know if this is complete. I think you need this piece, right before the EndFunc command

<code>

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

ExitLoop

EndSelect

</code>

I'm not sure this will completly fix it though :mellow:

The original code what only a bit of the original, but that is the entire code that has to do with the GUI. The GUI is part of a function which is called by a hot key.

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

I just tried the code, it doesn't work, as I'm not using a loop. The GUI is part of a function and doesn't have a loop. I tried removing the "ExitLoop" and it still won't close. I tried making a loop and it just continually opens the window Edited by Dephy

Here's most of the code, I can't show it all though. I still can't close the window with this code either.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include "GUIConstants.au3"

While 1
    HotKeySet("+a", "_AGUI")
WEnd

Func _AGUI()
GuiCreate("TITLE", 100, 400)
GuiSetIcon(@SystemDir & "\mspaint.exe", 0)
GuiCtrlCreatePic("pic.jpg",0,0, 100,400)
GuiSetState()
While 3
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
EndSelect
WEnd
EndFunc

you don't want just exitloop

you want either guidelete or guisetstate(@SW_HIDE)

then your exitloop

1 more edit.

since you guicreate is in the function called with the hotkey, use guidelete("title")

@SW_HIDE only hides the gui so you would be creating a new one every time the func is called and never deleting any.

Why did you place the hot key registration _inside_ the main loop?

How did you intend to terminate your program?

Use Tabs to indent.

Try this:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include "GUIConstants.au3"

; needs only invoked once!
HotKeySet("+a", "_AGUI")

; you need to provide a clean way to exit your program (the loop below)
; use Escape to exit
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "ExitPgm")

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _AGUI()
    GuiCreate("TITLE", 400, 100)        ; this way is much better (or was it a haïku?)
    GuiSetIcon(@SystemDir & "\mspaint.exe", 0)
;~  GuiCtrlCreatePic("pic.jpg",0,0, 100,400)        ; or is it 400x100 ?
    GuiSetState()
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSelect
    WEnd
    GUIDelete()
EndFunc

Func ExitPgm()
    Exit
EndFunc

Awesome! It worked, thanks.
