Multiple Independent Tabs Help Needed

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm trying to setup a multiple tab gui to act as a logger and have a problem figuring out how to code my buttons, fields, and check boxes to act independently of each other on the 5 different tabs. Here's an example of how I have it setup:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include<File.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <inet.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Multiple Independent Tabs", 400, 400, (@DesktopWidth - 400) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 400) / 2)

$hTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 480, 480)
; Create tabitems
For $i = 0 To 4
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab " & $i)
    ;GUICtrlCreateButton("Built-In " & $i, 20 + ($i * 100), 40 + ($i * 50), 80, 30)

    $NotesButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notes", 20, 380, 60, 20)
    $CButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test 1", 90, 380, 50, 20)
    $PButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test 2", 150, 380, 60, 20)
    $SButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test 3", 220, 380, 60, 20)
    $ResetButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Reset", 320, 330, 50, 20)

    $ApptID = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 60, 40, 110, 20)
    $Name = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 60, 65, 110, 20)
    $BillingPhone = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 60, 90, 110, 20)
    $ContactPhone = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 60, 115, 110, 20)
    $Mac = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 60, 140, 110, 20)
    $Notes = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 20, 270, 290, 100, $ES_MULTILINE + $ES_WANTRETURN + $WS_VSCROLL)


    $ResetButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Reset", 320, 330, 50, 20)

    $Checkbox_9 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Test1", 12, 170, 120, 20)
    $Checkbox_10 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Test2", 12, 190, 120, 20)


    $Label_18 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Appt ID", 12, 40, 50, 30)
    ;$Label_19 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Name", 12, 65, 20, 1)
    $Label_20 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Name", 12, 65, 40, 20)
    $Label_21 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Phone", 12, 90, 80, 20)
    $Label_22 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Alt#", 12, 115, 70, 20)
    $Label_23 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Mac", 12, 140, 60, 20)
    $Label_24 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Notes:", 20, 250, 60, 20)
    $Label_25 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Time:" & "  " & @HOUR & @MIN & "  " & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "-" & @YEAR, 260, 30, 90, 40)
Next

GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

; Create UDF controls
;~ For $i = 0 To 4
;~     $hButtons[$i] = _GUICtrlButton_Create($hGUI, "UDF " & $i, 20 + ($i * 100), 80 + ($i * 50),80, 30)

; Hide the controls so only the one on the first tab is visible

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $ResetButton
            _Clear_All()
        Case $hTab
            ; Check which Tab is active
            $iCurrTab = GUICtrlRead($hTab)
            ; If the Tab has changed
            If $iCurrTab <> $iLastTab Then
                ; Show/Hide controls as required

                Switch $iCurrTab

            EndIf
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Func _Clear_All()
    ;clear all check boxes
    For $i = 1 To 50
        GUICtrlSetState($i, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
    Next
    For $i = 42 To 45
        GUICtrlSetData($i, "")
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>_Clear_All

Func _SelfRestart()
    If @Compiled Then
        Run(FileGetShortName(@ScriptFullPath))
    Else
        Run(FileGetShortName(@AutoItExe) & " " & FileGetShortName(@ScriptFullPath))
    EndIf
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_SelfRestart

Where and how can I setup my button,fields, and checkbox controls so that one tab will not affect the other tabs info when they are clicked or have data entered?

Currently the Tab items are independent of each other tab but I can't seem to figure out how to get the buttons to work.

I have tried various ways and nothing seems to work.

In the above code I have the reset button set to use Func _Clear_All() to clear the checkboxes and would also like it to clear the form fields.

The buttons at the bottom will be used to submit the tab data by individual tabs also.

Please help me get past this one hurdle. So far everything has gone fairly well but I am stumped here.

rezz,

At the moment you are overwriting the ControlIDs of each each set of controls as you create a new tab - you only store those of the last created tab. Use arrays to hold the ControlIDs for each of the buttons, etc on each tab. Then you can address the control on Tab# as $aArray[#] and so differentiate between them. :x

Thanks for that.

I'm having trouble enough with the easy part without getting into arrays.

Any help on that would be appreciated.

If you can get me started I can probably go from there.

This is just an example I put together for posting. The other gui is similar but have more buttons and check boxes.

rezz,

If you can get me started

How did I know you were going to ask that? :P

Here is a version of your script with arrays to hold the ControlIDs for the controls. I have added code for the Reset buttons so that you can see how to use the Tab index to action the correct element within the various arrays - you can see that you only reset the tab on which the Reset button is located:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include<File.au3>

#include <IE.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <inet.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
