Child GUI Help

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a simple gui with a button which opens a second window, then when you close the 'child gui' it should just go back to the main gui.

here is the script...

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#NoTrayIcon
#RequireAdmin
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1)

Local $Var = False

$Form1 = GUICreate("Main", 456, 313, -1, -1)
$LABEL = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Child Window Has not been opened", 80, 40, 310, 28)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_CloseApplication")

;Buttons
$BUTTON_CHILD = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child", 184, 144, 75, 25)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($BUTTON_CHILD, "_Begin_Open_Function")

While 1
Sleep(0)
If $Var Then
        _Open_Function()
    EndIf
WEnd

;Close Func
Func _CloseApplication()
    Exit
EndFunc

;Child Window Func
Func _Begin_Open_Function()
$Var = True
EndFunc

Func _Open_Function()
$Var = False
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1)
GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $Form1)
$FormChild = GUICreate("Child", 320, 200, -1, -1)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $FormChild)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Close_Child_Window")
EndFunc

;Close Child Window
Func _Close_Child_Window()
GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $Form1)
GUIDelete($FormChild)
EndFunc

What it's doing is when you close the child gui it says "$FormChild variable being used without being declaired" and I cant see why its doing this. Can anyone tell me please?

Thanks

I made one or two changes to your code.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#NoTrayIcon
#RequireAdmin
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1)
Global $FormChild, $Var = False

$Form1 = GUICreate("Main", 456, 313, -1, -1)
$LABEL = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Child Window Has not been opened", 80, 40, 310, 28)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)

;Buttons
$BUTTON_CHILD = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child", 184, 144, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($BUTTON_CHILD, "_Begin_Open_Function")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_CloseApplication")

While 1
    Sleep(0)
    If $Var Then
        _Open_Function()
    EndIf
WEnd

;Close Func
Func _CloseApplication()
    Exit
EndFunc

;Child Window Func
Func _Begin_Open_Function()
    $Var = True
EndFunc

Func _Open_Function()
    ;Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
    ;Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1)
    GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $Form1)
    $FormChild = GUICreate("Child", 320, 200, -1, -1)
    GUICtrlSetFont($FormChild, 14, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
    GUICtrlSetColor($FormChild, 0x000000)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $FormChild)
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Close_Child_Window")
    $Var = False
EndFunc

;Close Child Window
Func _Close_Child_Window()
    GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $Form1)
    GUIDelete($FormChild)
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_CloseApplication")
EndFunc

You should look at the excellent examples by Melba23 in the Wiki. => Managing Multiple GUIs.

am632,

The $FormChild variable is only declared in the _Open_Function function when it is created. As you do not specify a scope, AutoIt defaults to the Local scope and the variable is invisible to any other function in the script - so when you try to access it in the _Close_Child_Window function, you get the error. Solution: add the $FormChild variable as Global at the top of your script. :mellow:

By the way, the Local $Var = False is automatically recast as all variables in the main script are Global in scope. And you do not need to repeat the Opt lines in the _Open_Function function - the initial ones are valid for the whole script. :)

All clear? :)
