Stylish Countdown GUI

Recommended Posts

billthecreator

I created a program that allows the user to create a countdown showing days, hours, minutes, and seconds left.

The colors fade from dark to light. You may also change the color of each column, red, green, or blue. Or shades of grey.

The program also uses MrCreatoR's

If you choose not to use the hover effect, just remove the lines of code that uses it.

It makes it much more stylish with it.

Countdown.au3

I made this because of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim !

      I wanted to make a countdown timer without queueing the countdown message to the next line but the previous data is removed after using GUICtrlSetData. Any thoughts on how to display the previous data/message?

      Here is an example:
      #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $_main = GUICreate("", 501, 313, -1, -1) Global $g_idMemo = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 2, 2, 496, 274, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $ES_READONLY + $WS_VSCROLL) GUICtrlSetData(-1, "") GUICtrlSetFont($g_idMemo, 9, 400, 0, "Courier New") GUICtrlSendMsg($g_idMemo, $EM_SETREADONLY, True, 0) GUICtrlSetBkColor($g_idMemo, 0xFFFFFF) GUICtrlSetCursor($g_idMemo, -1) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) HotKeySet('{esc}', "_close") Func _close() Exit EndFunc ;==>_close Func MemoWrite($sMessage = "") GUICtrlSetData($g_idMemo, $sMessage & @CRLF, 1) EndFunc ;==>MemoWrite MemoWrite("test message 1") Sleep(1000) MemoWrite("test message 2") Sleep(1000) MemoWrite("test message 3") Sleep(1000) For $i = 5 to 0 Step -1 GUICtrlSetData($g_idMemo, "Program will exit in "&$i&" seconds...") Sleep(1000) Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd

      Hello, i havê been reading, and thinking.. Im on my tablet só i WLL try explain what im trying to do....

      Timer 1, - input 5 minutes, timer 2 - input 10, timer 3 input 15, timer 4 - input 8,......
      At some time,  timer 1 will end ate some time of timer 2 / then it at some time will end at some time timer 2 and 3 
      How i said that wen it happpens first is 2 then 1, then outhers and if 1 is done then 1st is 3, will have more than 9 input boxes that can happen it end at some time, imagine if wen timer 1= 0 function1(), then after end funciona start countdown again, if timer 2 = 0 run function2(), then after end function2 start contdoen again, if both =0 at some time first run 1 then 2, and if wen ends 1, 2,3,4 are =0 :-( :-( :-(  im lost

      I create  a picture as a button
      $historyon = GUICtrlCreatePic("off.jpg", 280, 500, 30, 30) GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) $ButtonNext = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 280, 500, 30, 30) GUICtrlSetCursor(-1, 0) GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF) GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT) GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_ENABLE) _GUICtrl_OnHoverRegister(-1, "_Hover_Proc", "_Leave_Hover_Proc", "PrimaryDown_Proc") From the innitiate state the button on the gui is in "off" position. When the button is pressed the picture should be changed to "on" position
      Later on I register the function for the button when it is pressed
      Func PrimaryDown_Proc($historyon) local $buttonon, $buttonoff Switch $historyon Case $ButtonNext if $historyswitchedon=0 then $buttonon = GUICtrlCreatePic("on.jpg", 280, 500, 30, 30) GUICtrlDelete ($buttonoff) ;MsgBox (0, "", "0") GUISetState() $historyswitchedon=1 Return EndIf if $historyswitchedon=1 then $buttonoff = GUICtrlCreatePic("off.jpg", 280, 500, 30, 30) GUICtrlDelete ($buttonon) ;MsgBox (0, "", "1") GUISetState() $historyswitchedon=0 Return EndIf EndSwitch EndFunc But I am getting not stable result: Sometimes, the picture of button is changed directly when I press on it, sometimes it is not changed, sometimes it is keeping changing from position "on" to position "off" while the button is being pressed several times. What am I doing wrong?

      I tried to come up with a simple toolbar which displays the plain icons (without a button frame) but also shows a button effect when hovered or clicked on.
      My approach was to create a button, add an icon and hide the icon button again. Then place the icon without the button on top of it. When the mouse is moved over the icon I hide the icon (which leaves button displayed) giving me the hover effect for hover and clicks (using GUIGetCursorInfo() to get the icon ID).
      It seem to work ... but sometimes the hover effect does not show as expected especially when the mouse is moved slowly to the edge of the icon. While the icon ID is being read and action triggered (see Mouse OVER text) the icon itself is not being hidden (and button displayed).
      I found that the effect is more likely to occur when the GUI is freshly loaded.
      Can anyone reproduce this effect? I wonder what may causes this effect or is anything wrong in my coding?
      Any hint and support would be appreciated!
      Many thanks
