Help with GUIOnEventMode

13 posts in this topic

Hi,

I need some assistance with pausing my script in a While/Wend loop...or what ever command is appriopriate...until a GUI window button is pressed when using GUIONEventMode. I've been able to get this to work by removing the GUIOnEventMode option, but I would rather keep the GUIOnEventMode option enabled.

Here is the bare bones of my script. What I'm attempting to do is pause the script when the "_PreMessage" function is called until the GUI window "OK" button is clicked. At that point, Id like the script to continue on from there. What is not working is the "_PreMessage" function when clicking the GUI Button, its not recognizing the click event.

Any assistance would be most appriciated!! :x

You're mixing GUIOnEvent mode and message mode, you can't do that. You have to choose one or the other unless you get fancy with the options. Add a GUICtrlSetOnEvent message for the $PreUACNoteButton button and remove the GetGUIMsg from your While...Wend loop.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

OK...I put some more thought into this and this is what I've added to the script...

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($PreUACNoteButton, "_ClosePreMessage")
.
.
.

$Wait = WinWaitNotActive ($PreUACNoteForm, "Note from the IT Department...")
Do
  $Wait = WinWaitNotActive ($PreUACNoteForm, "Note from the IT Department...")

Until $Wait = 1

Func _ClosePreMessage()
GUISetState(@SW_Hide, $PreUACNoteForm)
EndFunc

This seems to work for now...

BrewManNH,

Thanks for the reply...that's what i was afraid of. I was hopeing someone a heck of a lot smarter than me had some sort of work around. Basically, what you suggested is what I changed...see my previous post.

BTW, unless you absolutely need to, you don't need to Call a function you can just reference the function that you want to execute.

This:

Call("_CanNotCreateRegKey")

Can be done like this:

_CanNotCreateRegKey()

Using Call prevents you from passing variables using ByRef. Just an FYI, either way will work pretty much the same but the second way saves typing :x

DOH!!!!! :P

This doesn't work like I entended it to!! If the window looses focus by clicking somewhere else, it ends the do/until loop...not what I expected to happen.

Back to the drawing board! :x

Can the GUIOnEvent mode be turned on and off to switch from the different modes?

HockeyFan,

Can the GUIOnEvent mode be turned on and off to switch from the different modes?

Yes.......but! :shifty:

If you find yourself feeling the need to do this in the same script then a very loud warning bell should begin sounding and you should start wondering why you have found yourself in this situation. I would strongly suggest that if you do find yourself in this situation to recast your code to get the whole script to work in the one mode. :P

Where changing mode can be useful is with some UDFs. The ExtMsgBox UDF in my sig uses MessageLoop mode - it changes the mode to MessageLoop as it begins and returns to whatever the original script was using as it exits. As it is a blocking function (you cannot return from it without actioning the ExtMsgBox) you cannot do anything with the original script while you are in the UDF, so changing the mode does not cause any problems in this case.

Please ask if you have any more questions about this. :x

Melba23,

Thanks for the heads up! I'm at wits end with two scripts attempting to do the same thing...pause the script until a GUI button is pressed.

The problem i'm having with the script i'm working on right now is, the function is called, the GUI window is displayed, but the GUIOnEvent associations for the two GUI buttons is not working.

Would you mind looking at what I've got to see if you can see any problems? :P The function that is not working is the "UserNameADAccountVerify"

The main body of the script includes the following

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

While 1
   Sleep(40)  ; Idle around
WEnd

...Not sure if the first "While/Wend" causes problems with the "While/Wend" that is also in the function call.

Func _VerifyYes()
MsgBox(0, "Test", "Yes button clicked")
GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $UserNameADAccountVerifyForm)
EndFunc

Func _VerifyNo()
MsgBox(0, "Test", "No button clicked")
GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $UserNameADAccountVerifyForm)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $UserNameInputGUI)
EndFunc

Func UserNameADAccountVerify()
$UserNameADAccountVerifyForm = GUICreate("PLEASE VERIFY", 600, 270, -1, -1, 0, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST,$WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
$UserNameADAccountVerifyLabel1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Is the User Info typed correctly?", 80, 16, 468, 33, $SS_CENTERIMAGE)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")

Events are queued and ran after each other, they doesn't interrupt each other. If you want to do this with OnEvent then remove the loop from the event. In this situation it might be easier to use MessageLoop like Melba did though.

HockeyFan,

Two While...WEnd loops in an OnEvent script is just asking for trouble. :nuke:

Let me ask a simple question - how do you ever escape from the second loop in the function? Answer - you do not. :shifty:

AutoIt does not like remaining in functions - it prefers returning to the main idle loop. Alas, it is not as easy as you think it might, or indeed should, be to escape from a loop in a function. :P

As an example, look at this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $fStop = False

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")

GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 10, 10, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Start")
GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 10, 50, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Stop")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func _Start()
    $fTrue = False
    $iBegin = TimerInit()
    ConsoleWrite("Starting" & @CRLF)
    Do
        Sleep(10)
    Until $fStop = True Or TimerDiff($iBegin) > 5000
    ConsoleWrite("Stopping" & @CRLF)

EndFunc

Func _Stop()
    ConsoleWrite("Please Stop" & @CRLF)
    $fStop = True
EndFunc

You might think that you could easily escape because the Stop button would set the flag and so break the loop. But if you try you see that the loop continues until the timer lets it escape (you see the "TimeOut" message) - and only then will you see the "Please Stop!" messages. This is because AutoIt queues events and only actions them after you return from a running function - I suggest you read the Interrupting a running function tutorial in the Wiki which goes into more depth and also explains how to do it. :x

Please ask - once you have read the tutorial - if anything is unclear. Although as I wrote it, I hope that everything will be as clear as crystal! :lol:

HockeyFan,

Please ask - once you have read the tutorial - if anything is unclear. Although as I wrote it, I hope that everything will be as clear as crystal! :shifty:

Melba,

Thanks for all of your help! After considering the information you presented, I decided to rework the script(s) so that it falls back to the main idle loop...as it wants to do. It took a bit more work, but in the long run, the script will be better off. :x

Thanks again for all of your advice and assistance!!! :nuke::P
