A Popup Gui problem

Recommended Posts

Hell all,

I have been trying to figure out to how do this for a long time now. Basically I have a autoit script with a GUI. When a button is pushed, i need the GUI to open a new GUI that has a combo box and an okay button. I want the okay button to read the data from the combo box and return control back to the main gui. When the x button is pressed on the popup gui, it should close just that gui and not the main one as well. My problem is that i cannot get the Gui to read the input from the combo, close after okay is pressed or just close with the x. Here is the part of my main script where the second GUI should pop out.

Case $secondgui
    $who = GUICtrlRead($input)
    $secondgui=GUICreate("newgui",250, 250)
    $getffs=GUICtrlCreateCombo("Choice1",0, 0, 100)
Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $okay
                Send("$who & $rank2)


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

$hGUI = GUICreate("Main GUI",500,400);Create main GUI
$hButton1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open 2nd GUI!!",20,20, 100,20)
$hLabel1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",20, 50, 100,20);Create label where the result is displayed

$hGUI2 = GUICreate("Popup GUI", 200, 200);Create POPUP GUI
$hButtonX = GUICtrlCreateButton("X",20,20,25,25);Create X button
$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("",20,50, 100, 20);Create Combo
GUICtrlSetData($hCombo, "Data1|Data2|Data3");Set data of combo

GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hGUI2)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $hButton1
            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI2)
        Case $hButtonX
            $result = GUICtrlRead($hCombo)
            GUICtrlSetData($hLabel1, $result)
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hGUI2)

PowerSlide2UnlockiPhone look-a-like program you can use to lock your pc, you can't access your desktop again until the password is entered and the slider slided to the right. (really proud of it)-- After a time AutoIt and Windows, I switched to Mac. Don't expect me to answer anymore.

When the x button is pressed on the popup gui, it should close just that gui and not the main one as well.

I recommend the Managing Multiple GUIs tutorial in the Wiki - it shows you how to avoid that particular problem. And it might well help you with the others as well ;)

After having read the tutorial please come back if you have any further questions. :)
