Starting 2 GUIs Simultaneously?

12 posts in this topic

This may seem like a post on something somebody has already solved, but my half extensive search on the forums have yielded no results.

What I want to happen is two GUI windows opening at the same time - one at the top right of the screen and the other at the bottom right. One will ask you to enter a folder, press okay, then ask you to enter another folder. The other window should be displaying these folders, but should have no buttons on. This is my code (Just the GUI bits):

Func Settings()
    Local $add, $disp, $remove, $msg, $mGUI, $mGUIn

    If IniRead ( $sIni, $iniRun, "Fin", 0 ) = 1 Then
        $mGUIn = "Back"
    Else
        $mGUIn = "Continue"
    EndIf

    GUICreate ( "Settings", 160, 136 )
    $add = GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Add", 5, 5, 150, 30 )
    $disp = GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Display", 5, 37, 150, 30 )
    $remove = GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Remove", 5, 69, 150, 30 )
    $mGUI = GUICtrlCreateButton ( $mGUIn, 5, 101, 150, 30 )
    GUISetState()

    If IniRead ( $sIni, $iniRun, "Settings", 0 ) = 0 Then
        MsgBox ( 0, "First Run", "This is the settings menu. This program creates profiles for Garry's Mod by moving the addons you choose out of the Addon folder and into AddonStore, inside your Garry's Mod install." )
        MsgBox ( 0, "First Run", "Close this window and press 'Add' to choose the addons you would like to remove from the game while playing in the performance profile." )
        IniWrite ( $sIni, $iniRun, "Settings", 1 )
    EndIf

    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                GUIDelete()
                ExitLoop
            Case $msg = $add
                If IniRead ( $sIni, $iniRun, "Add", 0 ) = 0 Then
                MsgBox ( 0, "First Run", "Pressing 'Add' allows you to customize your profiles. Navigate to 'garrysmod/garrysmod/addons' and drag and drop the addon folders you would like to remove while using the performance profile onto the window." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "You can change these at any time." )
                IniWrite ( $sIni, $iniRun, "Add", 1 )
                EndIf
                $array = IniReadSection ( $sIni, $file )
                If @error = 0 Then

Check out the examples in the Wiki provided by Melba23, this should give some idea. Remember you can't mix GUIMsg() & EventMode, so choose which best suits your needs.

Unfortunately, I actually started my search there. While it did make sense to me, it is all based around pushing a button to open another GUI. I don't want to have to make the user of my program push a button to open something that should already be there. I tried to adapt that information to my needs, but I had no luck.

Is it possible for you to provide a more specific solution?

You need to combine your two functions and have one message loop for both guis. You can't duplicate variable names in this case so I have renamed one $disp to $disp1.

If you need to know which window the message was from, eg which close button was pressed, then look up GuiGetMsg and use the advanced version.

If you keep the creation of each gui in a separate function then either you need to make sure that the controls have variable names which are global or you need to use event mode.

Thanks! You actually interpreted my code wrong ;) But you certainly gave me the answer!

My next (and hopefully final :)) question is: can you make a GUI static, so you can't move it?

I will continue appreciating any help you guys give me.

You deserve a cookie, martin!

S1M1S,

can you make a GUI static, so you can't move it?

Just intercept SC_MOVE like this: ;)

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

Const $SC_MOVE = 0xF010

$hGUI_Move  = GUICreate("Movable GUI", 500, 500, 100, 100)
GUISetState()

$hGUI_Static = GUICreate("Immovable GUI", 500, 500, 200, 200)
GUISetState()

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SYSCOMMAND, "WM_SYSCOMMAND")

While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
WEnd

Func WM_SYSCOMMAND($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    If $hWnd = $hGUI_Static Then
        If BitAND($wParam, 0x0000FFF0) = $SC_MOVE Then Return False
    EndIf
    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc

Argh! Wait, I have one more question! Is it possible to have a dynamic number of GUI controls? Like, have a certain amount of checkboxes for each item in an array? If so, how would I get information from these dynamic controls?

Example: Say there are 15 items in an .ini file. There would then be 15 checkboxes for each item, and selecting a checkbox, then pressing 'ok' would delete those files out of the .ini (that's basically what I want to happen...)

Thanks in advance!

S1M1S,

Is it possible to have a dynamic number of GUI controls

Just use an array to hold the returned ControlIDs - size of array = number of controls. ;)

how would I get information from these dynamic controls?

Use a For...Next loop to run through the ControlIDs in the array. :)

I can understand where you're coming from, but I don't quite get it...

The only thing I don't understand is how you would create these controls... Would you use a For-Next loop or something else? If it isn't too much trouble, could you please give me an example?

I realize I'm asking for a lot here ;)

S1M1S,

I realize I'm asking for a lot here

As Sir Percy Ware-Armitage said to Courtney: "Do not expect treats like this every day!". ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $aButtons[5]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

For $i = 0 To 4
    $aButtons[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button " & $i, 10, (40 * $i) + 10, 80, 30)
Next

GUISetState()

While 1

    $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $iMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    For $i = $aButtons[0] To $aButtons[4]
        If $i = $iMsg Then
            MsgBox(0, "Pressed", "You pressed Button " & $i - $aButtons[0])
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next

WEnd
