Dropdown Menu to check check boxes.

3 posts in this topic

I have been trying to figure this out for some time now and haven't found much help in the forums.

I have a script that uses checkboxes do complete a list of tasks. The list has grown so big that it becomes a pain to check or uncheck tons of boxes depending on what you are doing. I want to add a drop down with "profiles" you can select and depending on what profile you select a different selection of boxes will be checked.

I tried using an if statement but the gui wasnt refreshing to effect the change to the drop down. Below is a modified version of the script so you can see what I am trying to do. If anyone could help or point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it!!!!

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>






#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=D:\Frank's Documents\Auto-It Scripts Archive\Scripts in Devlopment\Form1.kxf



$Form1 = GUICreate("Window Title", 327, 530, 193, 125)
    ;_GUIScrollBars_Generate($Form1,0,700)



    
    
    $option1 = "Config 1"
    $option2 = "Config 2"
    $option3 = "Config 3"
    $DropDown = GuiCtrlCreateCombo($Option1, 25, 10, 280, 20)
        GUICtrlSetData(-1, $option2)
        GUICtrlSetData(-1, $option3)
    
    

$Chk_Number1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Number 1", 25,30, 250, 15)
$Chk_Number2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Number 2", 25,50, 250, 15)
$Chk_Number3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Number 3", 25,70, 250, 15)

    
    


$btnok = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 25, 100, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$Checked_State = False





GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number1,$GUI_CHECKED)







#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###


;TrayTip("Checkbox State",$STATE,1)




While 1
    
    Switch GUIGetMsg()

    If BitAnd(GUICtrlRead($Chk_Number1),$GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED THEN;

MistakenSanity,

You should have mentioned you were using one of my UDFs! :idiot:

This will give you the basic idea of how to link the combo to the checkboxes: ;)

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIComboBox.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Window Title", 327, 530, 193, 125)

$option1 = "Config 1"
$option2 = "Config 2"
$option3 = "Config 3"
$DropDown = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 25, 10, 280, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Config 1|Config 2|Config 3")

$Chk_Number1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Number 1", 25, 100, 250, 15)
$Chk_Number2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Number 2", 25, 120, 250, 15)
$Chk_Number3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Number 3", 25, 140, 250, 15)

$btnok = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 25, 180, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$Checked_State = False

GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number1, $GUI_CHECKED)

$sCurrCombo = ""

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        Case $btnok


    EndSwitch

    $sCombo = GUICtrlRead($DropDown)
    If $sCurrCombo <> $sCombo And _GUICtrlComboBox_GetDroppedState($DropDown) = False Then
        $sCurrCombo = $sCombo
        Switch $sCombo
            Case "Config 1"
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number1, $GUI_CHECKED)
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number2, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number3, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
            Case "Config 2"
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number1, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number2, $GUI_CHECKED)
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number3, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
            Case "Config 3"
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number1, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number2, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
                GUICtrlSetState($Chk_Number3, $GUI_CHECKED)
        EndSwitch
    EndIf

WEnd

Please ask if you have any questions. :)
