Input Boxes

Recommended Posts

Penisaurus

So, I'm really bad at GUI's but if anyone could help me it would be great!

I would like to make an input box, a small one, to where I could put something in it, and then it would take me to a link with that something.

Let me make an example, or try.

So lets say I have the input box pop up, and I type in 1234

I would like my input box, we'll name it $input to be in some links.

Just confused. o_e

Example of what I would like.

; Input box pops up
; I put in input
; Takes me here with input
; Lets say $input = 1234

$input = 1234

ShellExecute("http://www.somesite.com/user/"& $input)
Sleep(2000)
ShellExecute("http://www.somesite.com/search/"& $input)
Sleep(2000)
ShellExecute("http://www.somesite.com/forums/topic/"& $input)

I know it doesn't have the GUI Inputbox.

Could someone start me off on how to make one though, or how it would work like that? :\

I would like to add a button to execute the input. Like after I type it I can press the button "Go!" or something, then it does it. o.o

For something this simple InputBox will work beautifully.

$input = InputBox ("Title", "Prompt", "Default")
if not $input then return ; So you can change your mind

Also, AutoIt should be able to queue the ShellExecutes, so the Sleep() isn't strictly needed. :mellow:

Ah. Okay. I get it now.

I guess I was thinking it would be more difficult than it seemed.

Thank you! :]

Is there anyway to make it a bit smaller and more compact?

If I go too small it only seems to do the default. D':

I'm not sure what you mean by 'smaller and more compact' - do you mean the code, or the box itself (which I believe has a minimum size, though I've never really bothered with it as it sizes itself well enough for me).

I mean, can I make it this size - Example

Without sizing it myself each time I run it?

Penisaurus,

From the Help file for InputBox:

The InputBox is user-resizable, but has a minimum size of approximately 190 x 115 pixels. Default size is approximately 250 x 190 pixels.

If you want it any smaller, you will have to write your own GUI code like this: :mellow:

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

$vID = _Get_ID()

MsgBox(0, "ID", $vID)

Func _Get_ID()

    $hGUI = GUICreate("ID Information", 180, 100, Default, Default, BitOR($WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU), $WS_EX_TOPMOST)

    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please type the ID!", 10, 10, 160, 20)

    $hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 40, 160, 20)

    $hOK_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 10, 70, 75, 20)
    $hCan_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 95, 70, 75, 20)

    GUISetState()

    While 1

        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $hCan_Button
                Exit
            Case $hOK_Button
                $vID = GUICtrlRead($hInput)
                GUIDelete($hGUI)
                Return $vID
        EndSwitch

    WEnd

EndFunc

Although this user-drawn GUI (which is based on your example) is only marginally smaller than the minimum size of an InputBox (180 x 100 vs 190 x 115) so you have to ask if it is worth the effort. :(
