Which Control Did That Key Stroke Come From?

4 posts in this topic

I'm writing an AutoIt GUI with multiple input boxes and buttons. The user can move from control to control using the Tab key. I'd like the program to perform specific actions when the user hits Enter or Tab. The actions should be different and depend on which box or button was highlighted when he hits Enter.

I would appreciate some help on how to do this.

Thank you - Dick

DickWms,

I can think of a number of ways to do this - but here is probbaly the easiest: :>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hInput_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("1", 10,  10, 200, 20)
$hInput_2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("2", 10, 110, 200, 20)
$hInput_3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("3", 10, 210, 200, 20)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            DllClose($dll)
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    If _IsPressed("0D", $dll) Then
        Switch _WinAPI_GetFocus()
            Case GUICtrlGetHandle($hInput_1)
                MsgBox(0, "Focus", "Input 1 had focus")
            Case GUICtrlGetHandle($hInput_2)
                MsgBox(0, "Focus", "Input 2 had focus")
            Case GUICtrlGetHandle($hInput_3)
                MsgBox(0, "Focus", "Input 3 had focus")
        EndSwitch
    EndIf
WEnd

Please ask if anything is unclear. :unsure:
