having trouble with array and gui

6 posts in this topic

so im having a little programmers block and thought id ask for help. i have an updown button called $updown that ranges from 1 to 15 with 1 as the default. i want the code create a number of input boxes with browse buttons based on the number in the updown. so if 7 in the number in updown, there should be 7 inputs with 7 browse buttons. i also need it to correct itself. so for instance i go to 8 and then down one to 7, it needs to delete the last one. right now i just have the gui call this function when $updown is clicked. heres what i have so far:

Func browseforvidarray()
$i=1
Do
;~    MsgBox(0, "", $i)
$videoinput[$i-1] = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 136+25*$i, 417, 21)
$videolook[$i-1] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Browse", 444, 132+25*$i, 65, 25)
   $i=$i+1
   redim $videoinput[$i+1]
   redim $videolook[$i+1]
  until $i>=GUICtrlRead($input)+1
EndFunc

bobbintb,

Perhaps something along these lines might do the trick: :D

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <UpdownConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

Global $aInputs[15]

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

$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput(1, 10, 10, 40, 20, $ES_READONLY)
$hUpDown = GUICtrlCreateUpdown(-1, $UDS_WRAP)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 15, 1)

For $i = 0 To 14
    $aInputs[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 50 + ($i * 30), 200, 20)
    If $i Then
        GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
    EndIf
Next

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hUpDown
            $iCount = GUICtrlRead($hInput)
            For $i = 0 To $iCount - 1
                GUICtrlSetState($aInputs[$i], $GUI_SHOW)
            Next
            For $i = $iCount To UBound($aInputs) - 1
                GUICtrlSetState($aInputs[$i], $GUI_HIDE)
            Next
    EndSwitch

WEnd

As you can see, all the controls are created initially and then shown/hidden as required. Sneaky but useful. :oops:

that worked great but now i have a problem. i added some lines to do the same thing but with a button as well. here is the code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <UpdownConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
Global $aInputs[15]
Global $bInputs[15]
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput(1, 10, 10, 40, 20, $ES_READONLY)
$hUpDown = GUICtrlCreateUpdown(-1, $UDS_WRAP)
$bInput = GUICtrlCreateButton("Browse", 230, 50, 65, 20)
GUICtrlSetLimit($hUpDown, 15, 1)
For $i = 0 To 14
$aInputs[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 50 + ($i * 30), 200, 20)
$bInputs[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Browse", 230, 50 + ($i * 30), 65, 20)
If $i Then
  GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
EndIf
Next
GUISetState()
While 1
Switch GUIGetMsg()
  Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   Exit
  Case $hUpDown
   $iCount = GUICtrlRead($hInput)
   For $i = 0 To $iCount - 1
    GUICtrlSetState($aInputs[$i], $GUI_SHOW)
    GUICtrlSetState($bInputs[$i], $GUI_SHOW)
   Next
   For $i = $iCount To UBound($aInputs) - 1
    GUICtrlSetState($aInputs[$i], $GUI_HIDE)
   Next
   For $i = $iCount To UBound($bInputs) - 1
    GUICtrlSetState($bInputs[$i], $GUI_HIDE)
   Next
EndSwitch
WEnd

problem is when i run it i get the full 15 inputs at first unless i remark out the this line:

$bInputs[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Browse", 230, 50 + ($i * 30), 65, 20)

i dont understand why adding it would affect the other.

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE) hides the last created control, in your case the button, in each iteration of the loop. So your input controls are never hidden since they are created before the buttons.
