Image with drop dound message box

Recommended Posts

Phaser

Hi Guys

Is there a way to call a image file and put it next to a drop down combo the user has to match the image with something in the drop down, example an image of a dog would match the word dog in the dropdown then click ok so another image can load.

I have looked through the help file and example folder, I see how to call the image into a gui but not into a message box, please point me in the right direction, the images are in the same folder as the script. After clicking ok I am writing the image name and answer from dropdown to an .ini file.

Is there a way?

Phaser,

I see how to call the image into a gui but not into a message box

So why not use a GUI? What does a MsgBox have that a user-drawn GUI does not? :graduated:

Hi Melba, thanks for looking in, I have an array of images to run through, so was contemplating doing it in a do statement

$i = 0

Do

Here I want to load the image by getting its name from the array key[$i]

Now I want to load the image into some sort of display next to a drop down box containing a set of words with an OK button

Now take the image name AND the selected answer and write it to the ini file

$i = $i+1

Until $i = 10

When above is complete the script will continue, need to sort the above so I can carry on.

I didn't know if a GUI would be ok for this task so will give it a try, thanks again

Hi Guys

Heres what I have so far, it loads fine but doesn't write to the ini file when clicked

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "killit")
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Local $images[3]=["dog","cat","bird"],$image
$i = 0
Do
GuiCreate("Match Image", 300, 100)
GuiCtrlCreatePic($images[$i] & ".jpg",2,2, 169,68)
$image = $images[$i]
$answer = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 200, 20, 70, 20)
GUICtrlSetData($answer, "1|2|3|4|5","1")
$accept = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 50, 70, 60)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($accept, "writetoini")
GuiSetState()
writetoini()
 
$i = $i+1
Until $i = 3
While 1
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd
Func writetoini()
IniWrite("info.ini", "Answers", $image, $answer)
EndFunc
Func killit()
Exit
EndFunc

When the OK button is clicked I want it to load the next image, when the last image is loaded and OK clicked I would like it to close the GUI

Any ideas?

Phaser,

Do not create your GUI several times - just update the controls like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "killit")

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Local $images[3] = ["dog", "cat", "bird"], $image

GUICreate("Match Image", 300, 100)
$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel($images[0], 2, 2, 169, 68) ; You would use GUICtrlCreatePic here <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
$image = $images[0]
$answer = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 200, 20, 70, 20, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST) ; Makes it read only
GUICtrlSetData($answer, "1|2|3|4|5", "1")
$accept = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 50, 70, 60)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($accept, "writetoini")
GUISetState()

$iCount = 0

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func writetoini()
    IniWrite("info.ini", "Answers", $image, GUICtrlRead($answer))
    $iCount += 1
    If $iCount = 3 Then Exit
    GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, $images[$iCount]) ; You would use GUICtrlSetImage here <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    $image = $images[$iCount]
EndFunc   ;==>writetoini

Func killit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>killit

I have used a label rather than a Pic control - you can see where you need to change functions (look for the <<<<<<< lines). :)

Please ask if there is anything you do not understand. :graduated:

Hi Melba, thanks for helping

OK it almost works, as you may have worked out its not really for dogs n cats, I am trying to get my database tool working on win7, I have hundreds of codes to capture so have started to create an installer that should work on any pc. My XP version doesn't work on win7 as for some reason win7 changes the colours so I decided to use chexksum values and capture the number images then, with this bit of code, assign the checksum to the number image. Heres what I have

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "killit")
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Local $checksums[5] = [73998694,735085934,1312511217,2002807561,2278841389], $checksum
GUICreate("Match Image", 300, 100)
$hLabel = GUICtrlCreatePic($checksums[0] & ".jpg", 2, 2, 169, 68)
$checksum = $checksums[0]
$number = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 200, 20, 70, 20, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST) ; Makes it read only
GUICtrlSetData($number, "1|2|3|4|5", "1")
$accept = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 50, 70, 60)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($accept, "writetoini")
GUISetState()
$iCount = 0
While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd
Func writetoini()
    IniWrite("info.ini", "Numbers", $checksum, GUICtrlRead($number))
    $iCount += 1
    If $iCount = 5 Then Exit
    GUICtrlSetImage($hLabel, $checksums[$iCount])
    $checksum = $checksums[$iCount]
EndFunc   ;==>writetoini
Func killit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>killit

It almost works , it loads the first image then sends the data on clicking OK but, it doesn't load the next image visually but it has loaded the next checksum. I changed the bits you mentioned, please advise, the 12345 is only for testing purposes.

EDIT

I think I see the problem, is it this line

GUICtrlSetImage($hLabel, $checksums[$iCount])

Needs to be

GUICtrlSetImage($hLabel,$checksums[$iCount] & ".jpg")

Yes bingo, that was the problem, thanks again for the help
