GUI Window that REQUIRES user input

Recommended Posts

Drifter

Hopefully my topic title is descriptive enough. What i want is the following: I have a Gui window that keeps track of applications, the user is able to click a button that allows them to add an application to track. This button opens a new window which requires them to enter appropriate information. When this window is open i want the user to not be able to get other windows focus. They must fill out the information on the window/close it to proceed (ill take care of adding the needed controls)

Does anyone know what im talking about? This behavior for a GUI window is seen in many programs these days, (Like the save dialog in Notepad)

Thanks for any help!

The first input will only be ticked if '1' or 'one' is entered, the next if '2' or 'two' and the third '3' or 'three', these can be changed by altering the apropriate $sAllowedIn, only once all 3 have aceptable info entered will the button be active to continue.

From just copy pasting these into SCITE it seems that Authenticity's solution is most like what im looking for, i will have to look and see if i can understand what is going on in each line as im somewhat new to this, but it seems like most of the work is done by the following lines:

(34) $hDlg = GUICreate("Dialog", 300, 100, -1, -1, -1, -1, $hParent)

(39) GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $hParent)

(40) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hDlg)

(55) GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $hParent)

The rest i could customize, add my own desired buttons and responses etc. Is this correct?

PS: Sorry Yoriz, thats not exactly what i was looking for. However, its a very interesting and neat thing which i might use at some point, thank you! :blink:

----

Edit: Or basically, the disabling of the main window since AutoIt recognises the second gui window as a child window. I hope my thinking is correct.
