Problem with hiding a control

Recommended Posts


I believe theres a problem due to using the UDF TFLabel.. because I have this section:

If $EdiblesBudget[2] > $EdiblesBudgetLimit Then
    $EdiblesResult = $EdiblesBudgetLimit
    $EdiblesResult -= $EdiblesBudget[2]
    $EdiblesTextToDisplay = 'Last weeks edibles cost: ' & $EdiblesBudget[2] & '    Budget: ' & $EdiblesBudgetLimit & '     Difference: ' & '<font color="red">' & $EdiblesResult & '</font>'
    $LastWeekEdibles = _GUICtrlCreateTFLabel($EdiblesTextToDisplay, 10,30)
    GuiCtrlSetState($LastWeekEdibles, $GUI_HIDE)

And it does not hide the $LastWeekEdibles.

But, using this:

If $EdiblesBudget[2] < $EdiblesBudgetLimit Then
    $EdiblesResult = $EdiblesBudgetLimit
    $EdiblesResult += $EdiblesBudget[2]
    $EdiblesResult -= $EdiblesBudgetLimit
    $LastWeekEdibles = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Last week's edibles cost: " & $EdiblesBudget[2] & "  |  Budget: " & $EdiblesBudgetLimit & "  |   Difference: +" & $EdiblesResult, 10, 30)
    GuiCtrlSetState($LastWeekEdibles, $GUI_HIDE)

Does hide it.

Read the function header for the UDF: :graduated:

; Return values..: Success - Returns array of identifiers (Control IDs) of new created label controls.

So you need to loop through that array and use GUICtrlSetState on all of the returned ControlIDs. :(


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area
