SImple noob question RE: Exit on click

Recommended Posts

I have created a GUI with an "Exit" submenu, but do not know how to code it so when clicked the script closes. Help?

And the variable for that menuitem is?

Are you using a Switch in your message loop or Select?

Did you even think that posting a few lines of your oh-so-secret code might give us something to work with?

While we are asking questions, I have this piece of code that isn't returning what I expect. Can you tell me what is wrong with it?

$MenuItem

Opt (GUIOnEventMode, 1) (I think thats what you mean...)

I'm writing a script to perform an automated QC process for servers I image utilizing a GUI and cmd. Regardless of the intent of the script, an exit button is an exit button...correct me if I'm wrong.

Appreciate the help!

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$Form1 = GUICreate("Sample", 178, 50, 192, 114)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Click the close button to exit!", 16, 16, 140, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

The above code doesn't work when Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1).

And as I have other menu items that are supposed to do something when clicked, I need it explained how to link a mouse click on that control to an action.

For example,

$mnuHelp = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Help", $mnuFile) should bring up a help file.

$mnuExit = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Exit", $mnuFile) should exit when clicked.

$mnuOpen = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Open", $mnuFile) should bring up a Select File dialog box.

Trying...

GUICtrlSetOnEvent ( $mnuOpen, FileOpenDialog ("Select a file", "C:\", ".txt"))

But that doesn't work either...

So my real question would be: how does the script detect WHEN the mouse is clicked, WHERE the mouse is clicked, and WHAT to do when clicked...?

GUICtrlSetOnEvent - Defines a user-defined function to be called when a control is clicked.

So code like this will work:

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($mnuOpen, "FODder")

Func FODder()
 FileOpenDialog("Select a file", "C:\", ".txt")
EndFunc

or maybe this, but probably not, but I haven't tried it..

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($mnuOpen, "FileOpenDialog ('Select a file', 'C:\', '.txt')")

If you are yousing Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1), then you would need to use GUISetOnEvent and GUICtrlSetOnEvent. GUISetOnEvent should be used with button like $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, while GUICtrlSetOnEvent should be used with buttons or something more created by user.

For example:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$MainGUI = GUICreate("My Test",400,300)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Msg Me...", "15", "15")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button, "_Msg")
$ButtonExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Please Exit..", "55", "55")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($ButtonExit, "_Exit")

While 1
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $MainGUI)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc
Func _Msg()
    MsgBox(0, "Message Box", "You have pressed button")
EndFunc

Yes, that works for buttons, but not for a Menu item.

I'm following the line of thought that when coding:

GUICtrlSetOnEvent ($mnuExit, "_EXIT")

Instead of the variable name ($mnuExit), I may need to use the controlID. However when I use the AutoIT Window Info tool, there is no controlID for that control.

So how do I identify the controlID of the File>Exit control?

Alternatively, how else can I identify that control without using the controlID?

Example using a menu and event mode 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$Form1 = GUICreate("sample", 416, 216, 192, 114)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE,"_Exit_Clicked",$Form1)
$mnuFile = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&File")
$mnuHelp = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Help", $mnuFile); should bring up a help file.
GUICtrlSetOnEvent ($mnuHelp, "_Help_Clicked")
$mnuExit = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Exit", $mnuFile); should exit when clicked.
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($mnuExit, "_Exit_Clicked")
$mnuOpen = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Open", $mnuFile); should bring up a Select File dialog box.
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($mnuOpen, "_Open_Clicked")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

 Func _Help_Clicked()
     ;your code here
 EndFunc

 Func _Exit_Clicked()
     Exit
 EndFunc

 Func _Open_Clicked()
     Local $sFileToOpen = ""

     $sFileToOpen = FileOpenDialog ("Select a file", "C:\", "Text Files(*.txt)")

 EndFunc
