Activate only the child window

Recommended Posts

OmYcroN

This is what I want to do:

- create a window

- press a button and another window appears

- the new window must be the only selectable one (not the first one)

I've tried creating it as a child but I can select both windows.

OmYcroN,

I suggest reading the Managing Multiple GUIs tutorial in the Wiki. :D

I know how to manage the Guis (buttons, closing etc.) but I don't know how to keep the second Gui(child) on top without a while loop (winactive/winactivate). Anyway interesting find because I didn't known about the wiki.

MsgBox(0, "", "", 0, $_hWnd) - This is what I want but don't know how to apply it to the guis.

OmYcroN,

As far as I know you still need to use @SW_DISABLE/ENABLE for the parent GUI - no doubt the API does it behind the scenes when a MsgBox is created. :oops:

This is a simple as I can get:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $hChild, $fChild = False

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child", 10, 10, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ; This uses a Global Flag - you could use the advanced parameter for GUIGetMsg instead
            If $fChild Then
                GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $hGUI)
                GUIDelete($hChild)
                $fChild = False
            Else
                Exit
            EndIf
        Case $hButton
            GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $hGUI)
            $fChild = True
            $hChild = GUICreate("Child", 200, 200, -1, -1, -1, -1, $hGUI)
            GUISetState()
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Any use? :D
