How to create a modal gui?

Recommended Posts

JAFN

I thought this one was going to be easy to search for, but alas...

How do I open a child gui window in modeless mode?

Currently I am cycling back to a Winactivate function.

But this has the disadvantage of momentarily allowing selection of another process before flipping back to the gui and so burying the parent gui.

Thanks.

Any reason for posting the same question in multiple forums?

Please stick to the original one.

JAFN,

I know what I mean by "modal", but I am not sure it is what you mean given your explanation. :)

Could you please explain clearly what you want to happen when your child GUI is opened, both to the parent GUI and any other windows that might be open. ;)

Sorry for the multiples. I got modeless and modal turned around in the first post and I have no idea how I got two of the latter.

What I want is for the child gui to function like a message box. By which I mean, requiring resolution before anything can be done with the parent window.

Pass the Handle of the Parent GUI to the Child GUI using the 'Parent Parameter' and then Disable the Parent GUI.

GUICreate ( "title" [, width [, height [, left [, top [, style [, exStyle [, parent]]]]]]] )

Example:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $hParentGUI

_Main()

Func _Main()
    Local $iButton_1

    $hParentGUI = GUICreate("Example by guinness", 200, 200, -1, -1)
    $iButton_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show MsgBox()", 10, 10, 85, 25)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hParentGUI)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop

            Case $iButton_1
                GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $hParentGUI)
                _ChildGUI()
                GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $hParentGUI)
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Main

Func _ChildGUI()
    GUICreate("Custom MsgBox()", 200, 200, -1, -1, -1, -1, $hParentGUI)
    GUISetState()

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                GUIDelete()
                ExitLoop

        EndSwitch
    WEnd

EndFunc   ;==>_ChildGUI

Thank you ever so much.

Lately it seems like whenever I can't figure something out on my own the answer involves many many lines of very dense WM_Notify (I'll be looking for a tutorial for dummies on this soon.) commands. So refreshing to have such an easy to implement and understand answer.

Again, thank you.

You're Welcome. I'm sure Melba23 will come in with a better solution :) And whilst I'm here I would recommend reading the Wiki about Multiple GUI's.

I went to implement your straight forward design and ran into the problem that when GUIDelete was reached the parent window was slammed into the background behind other open windows.

After going thru the help system and pouring over each possible line of code I decided to run your code just to see it work.

After adding:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $hParentGUI

to the top to make it functional I found it functions the same way. Pushing the parent behind other windows (one being Scite itself.)

I'm guessing something in my setup is to blame. My setup is vanilla, I do not even know how to change wrappers and the like.

Any ideas?

I just rebooted the computer and opened only Scite. It is still doing the same thing. :)

I swear that was the first thing I tried. I must have made some silly error like forgetting to save the change.

It works now but with a little more flicker than I would like.

I'm curious as to why this is required. I get what it does but it seemed like it should work without it.

Thank you again.

I don't get any flicker with the (latest) beta version I'm using. And to answer the question of why does this happen is for a Dev answer >> (I was a little curious too and came across this post by Melba23.)

Thank you again.

My brain is working better this morning.

While not as elegant, this change greatly reduces redraw flicker in my parent window.
