MsgBox Buttons

5 posts in this topic

In an effort to learn AutoIt i'm taking an old, sloppily written, script and, using MsgBox() only, trying to clean it up. How do i trap which button is pressed on a 2 or more button MsgBox()? The Help file doesn't address it, just shows how to create the buttons.

Thanks,

Dave

$var = MsgBox(...)

If $var = 6 Then ; yes was pressed

Just look in the help file for the MsgBox function and it shows the return values in a table.

Read the help file again and look in the button pressed table.

MsgBox(0, "Result", MsgBox(262147, "Button Pressed", "something"))

Read MsgBox again, and note Return Value.

$var = MsgBox(2, "Test", "This box will time out in 3 seconds", 3)
ConsoleWrite($var & @LF)

Ok, thanks. i could see the return values but didn't quite get how to trap for that value. i'm up to speed on that now (i think!).

Thanks again,

Dave
