Create Radio Button list from keys in INI

4 posts in this topic

I'm new to AutoIt..please forgive me.

I've been working on this problem for a day or two now.

What I'm trying to do is build a simple dialog box consisting of radio buttons. These radio buttons would be pulled from a dynamic list. Essentially the selection of one of the buttons and a subsequent "OK" selection would start a batch file and fire up a separate program.

My thought was to use an INI file. The INI would have only one section "Projects" and then multiple keys after it. The keys would be the descriptive name of the batch file and the value would be the actual batch file name.

So by selection of the radio button, the value would selected and the batch file executed.

I think this is possible, but I'm struggling getting the radio buttons to populate with the INI key names.

The INI format would be;

[Projects]

EAC WF 2.0=EACWF2.BAT

EAC WF 3.0=EACWF3.BAT

EAC WF 4.0=EACWF4.BAT

EAC WF 5.0=EACWF5.BAT

Here is some of the code I've been playing with just for testing.

#include <GUIConstantsEX.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Global $vGUI_V=400
Global $vGUI_H=600
Global $iniFile="Projectlist.ini"


GUICreate ("Start Up Selector", $vGUI_V, $vGUI_H)
GUICtrlCreateLabel ("Please select the Project to use", 10,10)
$startline=0
$project = IniReadSection($iniFile,"Projects")
GUISetState()
If @error Then
    MsgBox(4096, "ERROR", "Error occured, no INI or incorrect Sections")
Else
    For $i = 1 To $project[0][0]
    ;msgbox (4096, "KEYS", $project[$i][0])
    GUIctrlcreateradio ($project[$i][0], 10, $startline+25, 60)
    Next
EndIf

Sleep(4500)

I think this is possible, but I'm struggling getting the radio buttons to populate with the INI key names.

The buttons are all stacking up on top of each other because $startline is not incrementing as expected.

Replace:

GUIctrlcreateradio ($project[$i][0], 10, $startline+25, 60)

With

GUIctrlcreateradio ($project[$i][0], 10, $startline + 25 * $i, 80)

Go figure it was something that simple.

Thanks for the assistance. I'm sure I'll have more questions as I keep playing...
