Open something in my GUI

9 posts in this topic

I've searched everywhere and I can not find not even a clue where to begin.

What I want to do is have a program open up in a GUI window that I created.

I've learned everything by myself by checking out Help in AUTOIT and visiting this forum but I just cant figure out how to do this.

I started on Autoit about a week ago and I've learned so much. I dont ask anyone to put out the script for me but to point out where to go because I am so lost right now.

I can see you are lost.

But you will need to give a better explanation of what your goal is, because your post does not say much at all.

Showing the code you have created with comments of what you need to do wouldnt harm your plight either.

Welcome to the forums.

Well all I wanted is a game to appear in my GUI.

The same way as making your own browser with this, but instead of a browser the game.

#include <GUIConstants.au3> 
#include <IE.au3> 

$GUI = GUICreate("Simple Web Browser", 800, 450) 
$object = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2") 
$object_ctrl = GUICtrlCreateObj($object, 16, 10, 780, 400) 
$url_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("URL", 16, 410, 750, 25, 0) 
_IENavigate($object, "www.google.com") 
GUISetState() 
 
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $url_button
        $URL = Inputbox("Web Browser", "Enter the URL you want to visit.")
        _IENavigate($Object, $URL)
        
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Exit
    EndSelect
WEnd

I did not create that, I found that on the web when I was doing some searching.

I thought that ObjCreate would have been my way, but after hours of testing I was still lost.

I already know how to get a browser but what I wanted wanted was so I can open up a game inside. Like a .exe file.

I think you mean _WinAPI_SetParent(). Here's a short example:

#Include <WinAPI.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("something", 640, 480)
GUISetState()

Run("calc.exe")
WinWait("Calculator")
$calculator = WinGetHandle("Calculator")   ;You probably need to change this if you don't have english Win7

_WinAPI_SetParent($calculator, $gui)
WinMove($calculator, "", 100, 100)

Do
    Sleep(10)
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3   ;$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE = -3

Well, I did what you said and it worked. Although there is only 1 problem.

When I run the script it works like a charm, but when I close it and run again, the process of the game keeps running when I close the script.

I have tried to do this:

#Include <WinAPI.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("ProjecteQ",830, 643)

GUISetState()
Run (@ProgramFilesDir & "\Game\files\test.exe")
WinWait("test")
If Not WinActive("test") Then
    MsgBox("","Error","Game not loaded")
EndIf
$game = WinGetHandle("test")

_WinAPI_SetParent($game, $gui)
WinMove($game, "",100,100)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$game)

Do
    Sleep(100)
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3
    If GUIGetMsg() = -3 Then
        _WinAPI_CloseHandle($game)
        ProcessClose($game)
    EndIf

But it still wont close the process. I tried both _WinAPI_CloseHandle and ProcessClose.

EDIT:

Nevermind. I got it to work, it was right in my face.

Do
    Sleep(100)
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3
If WinActivate("test") Then
            WinClose("test")
    EndIf
