I can't make GUICtrlRead() as i expect

Recommended Posts

Here's a quick thing that i just can't make work correctly. Put a screen up to capture a user's input. Force that input to lowercase and put it in a variable to replace at a certain place in a third file. My problem is that i cannot get the user's input to tell me anything other than "3." i HAVE to be doing something wrong but darned if i can spot it.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ###
Form=f:\vuwin60\form1.kxf
Local $Form1, $txtInput, $btnOK, $btnCancel, $Label1
 
$Form1 = GUICreate("Enter User ID", 335, 90, -1, -1)  ;343, 140);, $WS_SYSMENU)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form1Close")
 
$txtInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 256, 16, 65, 21)
;GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "txtInputChange")
 
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please input your IWIMS User ID:", 8, 16, 232, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
;GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Label1Click")
 
$btnOK = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Ok", 32, 48, 100, 30, $BS_NOTIFY)
;GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKHCENTER+$GUI_DOCKVCENTER+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "btnOKClick")
 
$btnCancel = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Cancel", 200, 48, 100, 30, $BS_NOTIFY)
;GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKHCENTER+$GUI_DOCKVCENTER+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
 
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "btnCancelClick")
 
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
 
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###
 
While 1
     Sleep(100)
WEnd
 
Func btnCancelClick()
     Exit
EndFunc
 
Func btnOKClick()
     GUICtrlRead($txtInput)
     ConsoleWrite($txtInput & @crlf & StringLen($txtInput) & @CRLF)
     Exit
EndFunc
 
Func Form1Close()
     Exit
EndFunc

Can someone please straighten me out here? i expect the lowercase of whatever the user types in, not just "3."

Thanks,

Dave

You aren't displaying the text in the input, you're displaying the control ID for the input.

Func btnOKClick()
     $Temp = GUICtrlRead($txtInput)
     ConsoleWrite($Temp & @crlf & StringLen($Temp) & @CRLF)
     Exit
EndFunc

      Hello!
      Please help me with this small problem I've encountered while learning to make GUI.
      I'm not able to get the set slider values out of sliders and I can't figure out why.
      The slider value in the example is preset to 1, but whatever I set the slider to, it returns the value 3 when I click Apply and I havn't set any value to 3.
      Where is that 3 coming from?
       
      #include <SliderConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Global $LRSlider Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $Form1 = GUICreate("test slider", 200, 200, -1, -1) Global $LRSlider = GUICtrlCreateSlider(50, 50, 100, 20, $TBS_TOOLTIPS) GUICtrlSetLimit($LRSlider, 50, 1) GUICtrlSetData($LRSlider, 1) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Exit1") Global $ApplyButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("APPLY", 100, 150, 89, 17) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($ApplyButton, "Apply") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Func Apply() GUICtrlRead($LRSlider) MsgBox(0, 0, $LRSlider) GUICtrlSetData($LRSlider, $LRSlider) EndFunc ;==>Apply Func Exit1() Exit EndFunc ;==>Exit1 While 1 Sleep(200) WEnd

      One statement of GUICtrlRead() fails. Result is always "Long/Short" in written file.
      The other GUICtrlRead() calls work as expected
      Func GetScanSettings() ; Read User Input for scan Local $collectusername, $collectlot, $collectsample $UserFile = "Sample.dat" ; Global $UserFile = save this scan's parameters $datafile = FileOpen($UserFile) If( $datafile <> -1) Then $collectusername = FileReadLine($datafile, 1) EndIf FileClose($datafile) ; now open a new 'clean' file.. $datafile = FileOpen($UserFile,$FO_OVERWRITE ) ;Create GUI $Main = GUICreate('Enter Sample Detail', 500, 500) Opt("GUICoordMode",1) If( $collectusername <> "") Then $username = GUICtrlCreateInput($collectusername,100,20,100,20) Else $username = GUICtrlCreateInput('',100,20,100,20) EndIf $usernamelabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel('Username',30,22) $FileName = GUICtrlCreateInput("",100,45,100,0) $FileNamelabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel('File Name',30,47) $BatchNum = GUICtrlCreateInput("",100,65,100,0) $BatchNumlabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel('Lot',30,72) $SampleNum = GUICtrlCreateInput("",100,85,100,0) $SampleNumlabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel('Sample',30,97) $SampleLS = GUICtrlCreateInput("",100,105,100,0) $SampleNumLS = GUICtrlCreateLabel('Long/Short',30,117) $Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("OK", 190, 170, 0, 0, 0x0001) GUISetState (); Run the GUI until the dialog is closed While 1 $msg = GUIGetMsg() ; complete data entries Select Case $msg = $Button_1 $collectusername = GUICtrlRead($username) WinSetState('Collect Username','',@SW_HIDE) $collectfilename = GUICtrlRead($FileName) $collectlot = GUICtrlRead($BatchNum) $collectsample = GUICtrlRead($SampleNum) $collectLS = GUICtrlRead($SampleNumLS) ; Do ; $collectLS = GUICtrlRead($SampleNumLS) ; If $collectLS <> 'Long' And $collectLS <> 'Short' Then ; Soundplay("Windows XP Error.wav", 1) ; $collectLS = "" ; EndIf ; Until $collectLS = 'Long' Or $collectLS = 'Short' ExitLoop EndSelect Wend GUIDelete($Main) FileWrite($datafile,$collectusername & @CRLF & $collectfilename & @CRLF & $collectlot _ & @CRLF & $collectsample & @CRLF & 'Long' & @CRLF ) ; $collectLS & @CRLF) FileClose($datafile) EndFunc ;<=== GetScanSettings ================== I also tried to force user to enter either 'Short' or 'Long' but I got that wrong also
      The final FileWrite() edited so I do have a correct result.

      Hi
      Wiki has this entry: https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Label, which differs from the actual Help file.
      I can not READ the value of a LABEL.  Code
      GuiCtrlRead($myLabel)  returns "False". Help appreciated.
