Second GUI not calling functions

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'm sure the solution is obvious, but after my Helpfile-fu, Google-fu, Forum-fu and FAQ-fu failed me and hours of fiddling, I need a fresh pair of eyes to help.

The first GUI in this script loads, and when you press on the first button loads another GUI in the function Autobench. But this second GUI doesn't respond to any button presses. Any pointers to getting the buttons to respond would be greatly appreciated.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
#RequireAdmin

$MachineField = 0

$FormMainGUI = GUICreate("Benchmarks", 450, 150, (@Desktopwidth/2)-225, (@DesktopHeight/2)-250)
$btnAutomated = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Deploy and run automated benchmarks",75,40,300,41)
$btnExitGui = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 186, 100, 75, 25, 0)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$FormMainGUI)

GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE,"CloseGui",$FormMainGUI)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($btnExitGui,"CloseGui")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($btnAutomated,"AutoBench")

WinWaitClose("Benchmarks")


;**************************************************
;Functions

Func AutoBench()
    GUIDelete($FormMainGUI)

    $MachineNameGUI = GUICreate("Machine name",450,150,(@DesktopWidth/2)-225, (@DesktopHeight/2)-150)
    $MachineFieldlbl = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please enter the machine name (brand/model, e.g. Apple MacBook Pro 13",10,10)
    $MachineField = GUICtrlCreateInput("",10,30)
    $MachineSaveBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save",10,55,100,20)

    GuiSetState(@SW_SHOW,$MachineNameGUI)

    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE,"CloseGui",$MachineNameGUI)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent($MachineSaveBtn,"MachineSaveBtn")

    WinWaitClose("Machine name")
EndFunc

Func MachineSaveBtn()
    GUICtrlRead($MachineField)
    MsgBox(0,"",$MachineField)
EndFunc


Func CloseGui()
    Exit
EndFunc

Much thanks!

unexpectedpanda,

You need to have an idle loop in the main portion of the script where it can wait for you to action the controls. At the moment you are just waiting at the WinWaitClose("Machine name") line and, as you are still in a function, AutoIt just queues any further events - hence no reaction to them.

Remove the 2 WinWaitClose lines and substitute this for the WinWaitClose("Benchmarks") line:

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Now the script will return to the main portion of the script after creating the second GUI and be waiting for you to action its controls. :P

Please ask if anything is unclear. :x

Ah, so because it's in a function it's treated differently. Interesting! I look forward to playing around a bit more :x

Thanks so much for your kindness Melba23 -- I'd also like to thank you for all your other responses on this forum, they've saved me and no doubt many others a few times now.

unexpectedpanda,

Thanks for the compliments. :x

You may find the Interrupting a running function and Managing Multiple GUIs tutorials in the Wiki of interest if you want to learn a little more about such things. :P
