Multiple GUI windows......unloading individual forms?

17 posts in this topic

I've done some reading, but still can't achieve what I'm trying to do here. Within my application, the user can launch additional forms from several buttons. I have setup each additional form/GUI with it's own while statement because I want to allow the user to keep several of these open until the choose to close them.

So an example is, from within my main GUI the user clicks a button which calls a function to launch this secondary GUI:

Func _MyFunction2()
$currentTool = "MyVariable"
$ClipCurrent = ClipGet()
$frmScript = GUICreate( "Script On Clipboard", 388, 204, 335, 237, -1, -1, $Form1_1_1)
$edtCurrentScript = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 0, 385, 201, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_WANTRETURN,$WS_HSCROLL,$WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $ClipCurrent)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_QuitScriptWindow")

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

EndSwitch
Sleep(100)
WEnd
EndFunc

The referenced _QuitScriptWindow function basically calls "Exit", but I believe this will completely exit the app. Is there a way that within these additional functions/GUI's I can allow the user to basically just unload that form when they click the "X" button on it? I don't want to exit the main GUI, only that specific window. Any help is extremely appreciated. Coming from a Visual Basic background, this is confusing me in AutoIt since there is nothing similar to a unload form event.

Looking through that WIKI article I see how to do this with two static GUI windows open. However, I have the possibility of about 9 popup informational windows that I need to keep track of.......Is there a better way of doing this? Other than naming each of the 9 guis differently? Because basically all I'm doing is popping up a window for the user with an edit box that contains some text.....However the text is dynamic based on which button they clicked to launch the this second Gui window. The other caveat is that i need to allow the user to leave several of these open at once and close them out individually.

hogfan,

Just save the handles of the GUIs you create and have more cases in here:

$aMsg = GUIGetMsg(1) ; Use advanced parameter to get an array returned
Switch $aMsg[1] ; First check which GUI sent the message
    Case $hGUI1
        Switch $aMsg[0] ; Now check for the messages sent from $hGUI1

to deal with them. Not very difficult. :D

But make sure you declare the GUI handle variables initially or you will get error messages. :oops:

hogfan,

And here is how you might do it: :oops:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $aButton[9], $aGUI[9]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
For $i = 0 To 8

Next
GUISetState()

For $i = 0 To 8
    $aGUI[$i] = GUICreate("GUI " & $i, 200, 200, 100 + (100 * $i), 100 + (50 * $i), -1, -1, $hGUI)
    GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $aGUI[$i])
Next

GUISwitch($hGUI)

While 1

    $aMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $aMsg[1]
        Case $hGUI
            Switch $aMsg[0]
                Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                    Exit
                Case Else
                    For $i = 0 To 8
                        If $aMsg[0] = $aButton[$i] Then
                            GUICtrlSetState($aButton, $GUI_DISABLE)
                            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $aGUI[$i])
                            ExitLoop
                        EndIf
                    Next
            EndSwitch
        Case Else
            For $i = 0 To 8
                If $aMsg[1] = $aGUI[$i] Then
                    Switch $aMsg[0]
                        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                            GUICtrlSetState($aButton, $GUI_ENABLE)

So from what I can tell, this is initially creating all the GUIs when the script is executed and then just hiding them all? The clicking the buttons is just showing the that GUI. The While loop determines the GUI you clicked the X in and just rehides it? Am I following? Thanks.

ok, but is this possible? Each of my additional GUIs is launched when it is needed by the user clicking on a image which call a function like the one it my initial post, minus the While loop portion.

Func _MyFunction2() $currentTool = "MyVariable" $ClipCurrent = ClipGet()
$frmMyScript1 = GUICreate( "Current Script", 388, 204, 335, 237, -1, -1, $Form1_1_1)
$edtCurrentScript = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 0, 385, 201,BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_WANTRETURN,$WS_HSCROLL,$WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $ClipCurrent) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_QuitScriptWindow")
EndFunc

Each GuiCreate function has it's own unique handle (ie. $frmMyScript1). So is there a way to check that window handle within the While loop and close the specific window based on that handle?

hogfan,

So you insist on creating them as required and you want to use OnEvent mode...OK. :D

Take a look at this:

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

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $aButton[9], $aGUI[9]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "GUI_Exit")

For $i = 0 To 8
    $aButton[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton("GUI " & $i, 10, 10 + (50 * $i), 80, 30)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Button_Press")
Next

GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func GUI_Exit()

    Switch @GUI_WINHANDLE
        Case $hGUI
            Exit
        Case Else
            For $i = 0 To 9
                If @GUI_WINHANDLE = $aGUI[$i] Then
                    GUICtrlSetState($aButton[$i], $GUI_ENABLE)
                    GUIDelete($aGUI[$i])
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            Next
    EndSwitch

EndFunc

Func Button_Press()

    For $i = 0 To 9
        If @GUI_CTRLID = $aButton[$i] Then
            GUICtrlSetState($aButton[$i], $GUI_DISABLE)
            $currentTool = "MyVariable"
            $ClipCurrent = ClipGet()
            $aGUI[$i] = GUICreate( "Current Script", 388, 204, 335, 237, -1, -1, $hGUI)
            GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "GUI_Exit")
            $edtCurrentScript = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 0, 385, 201,BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_WANTRETURN,$WS_HSCROLL,$WS_VSCROLL))
            GUICtrlSetData(-1, $ClipCurrent)
            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next

EndFunc

And I know you need no encouragement to ask if you do not understand! :oops:

OK, believe I have structured my code properly now, but my additional GUIs are still not responding when the X button is clicked. Clicking on the X in the main GUI window does exit the application so my _Quit function appears to be working.

The below code is executed to create one of the additional GUIs when the user clicks a button. The window handle as you can see is $FRMScript.

Func _FRMSCRIPT()
$currentTool = "MYTOOL"

If $MyAction = "" Then
$TOOLCurrent = "You have not selected a script yet!"
Else
$TOOLCurrent = $MyAction
EndIf

$FRMScript = GUICreate($currentTool & " - Current Script", 388, 204, 335, 237, -1, -1)
$edtCurrentScript = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 0, 385, 201, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_WANTRETURN,$WS_HSCROLL,$WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $TOOLCurrent)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
EndFunc

I also have this code that calls my _Quit function on $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE:

;Make Window X button call the Exit Function
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Quit")

And here is the code for my _Quit function:

Func _Quit()
Switch @GUI_WINHANDLE
Case $FRMScript
GUIDelete($FRMScript)

Case Else
   Exit
EndSwitch
EndFunc

I don't see what I am doing wrong now to keep the additional GUI from exiting when the X is clicked.

hogfan,

Your posted snippets show that you are using the same variable ($FRMScript) each time you create an additional GUI - so you are overwriting the variable each time you create a new GUI. When you click on the [X] of one of the additional GUIs and look at @GUI_WINHANDLE, your Switch structure can only compare that value to the handle of the last created GUI. If you click on the [X] of a previously created GUI, it will not match and so you fire the Case Else and Exit. :oops:

The script I posted above stores the handles of the additional GUIs in an array and the Switch structure checks to see which one of the additional GUIs has sent the CLOSE message and then closes that particular GUI. The Switch only fires Exit if the message came from the parent GUI.

Does that explain why your code is not working as you wish? :D

Well actually, that was just a simple example. I am not re-creating the same form multiple times. I have several buttons that launch a "script viewing" window for different tools in my application. So the example GUI with $FRMScript handle is just one of those from. Any additional GUIs will not have same window handle as this one. The GUI handles will always remain static. So I am not sure why if this is the only instance of this GUI open, why my _Quit function is not finding the window handle and deleting that GUI. Does what I am saying make a bit more sense now? Thanks.

hogfan,

The GUI handles will always remain static

If you are creating and destroying GUIs this is certainly not true. :oops:

You will have to post a simple working reproducer script which shows the problem if you want more help - trying to debug from small snippets of code and hints such as the erronous statement quoted above never works. :D

I suggest a parent GUI with a couple of buttons which produce misbehaving additional GUIs. Then we can try to determine the structural problem within your code. :rip:

hogfan,

That was exactly what was needed! :D

4 points on the code you posted:

- 1. You have no GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Quit") lines for the additional GUIs - I presume this was a simple oversight.

- 2. You need to declare the variables to hold the additional GUI handles at the top of the script - at least you do if you want to avoid Au3Check errors. :)

- 3. You do not need to use GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1) between groups - just at the end of all the groups.

- 4. And the BIG one to finish with! You need to define the GUICtrlOnEvent functions before you use GUISetState! That is the structural error we needed to see. Just move the GUICtrlSetOnEvent($cmdPreview#, "_PreviewTool#") lines before the GUISetState line and all works as you wish: :oops:
