Auto-Updating GUI

Recommended Posts


Hello guys, so this is my first code. I'm making an application starter that starts different applications and has english and spanish languages as you can see in my code:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Global $Button1
Global $Button2
Global $Button3
Global $Button3t
Global $Button4
Global $Button4t
Global $Button5
Global $Button5t
Global $Button6
Global $Button6t
Global $Form1
Global $Label1
Global $Label1t
Global $Label2
Global $Label2t
Global $Label3
Global $Label3t
Global $nMsg
$Button3t = "Calculator"
$Button4t = "Notepad"
$Button5t = "Paint"
$Button6t = "Magnifier"
$Label1t = "Tony's Application Starter"
$Label2t = "More Features coming soon!"
$Label3t = "Current Language is English"
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 450, 303, 192, 124)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel($Label1t, 16, 8, 411, 42)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 25, 800, 0, "Arial")
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("English", 96, 80, 105, 33)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Español", 256, 80, 105, 33)
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton($Button3t, 80, 128, 121, 41)
$Button4 = GUICtrlCreateButton($Button4t, 256, 128, 121, 41)
$Button5 = GUICtrlCreateButton($Button5t, 80, 192, 121, 41)
$Button6 = GUICtrlCreateButton($Button6t, 256, 192, 121, 41)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel($Label2t, 48, 248, 352, 36)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 400, 0, "Arial")
$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel($Label3t, 96, 48, 242, 28)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 16, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###
While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
If $nMsg = $Button1 Then Button1()
If $nMsg = $Button2 Then Button2()
If $nMsg = $Button3 Then Button3()
If $nMsg = $Button4 Then Button4()
If $nMsg = $Button5 Then Button5()
If $nMsg = $Button6 Then Button6()

Func Button1()
$Button3t = "Calculator"
$Button4t = "Notepad"
$Button5t = "Paint"
$Button6t = "Magnifier"
$Label1t = "Tony's Application Starter"
$Label2t = "More Features coming soon!"
$Label3t = "Current Language is English"
Func Button2()
$Button3t = "Calculadora"
$Button4t = "Bloc"
$Button5t = "Pintura"
$Button6t = "Lupa"
$Label1t = "Arranque de Tony Aplicación"
$Label2t = "Más Novedades Pronto!"
$Label3t = "El Idioma Es Actual Español"
Func Button3()
Run ( "cmd /c start %windir%\system32\calc.exe", "", @SW_HIDE )
Func Button4()
Run ( "cmd /c start %windir%\system32\notepad.exe", "", @SW_HIDE )
Func Button5()
Run ( "cmd /c start %windir%\system32\mspaint.exe", "", @SW_HIDE )
Func Button6()
Run ( "cmd /c start %windir%\system32\magnify.exe", "", @SW_HIDE )

You aren't changing the information on the controls, just the value of the variable used to initially create it. You need to, for example, use GUICtrlSetData($Button3, "Calculadora") instead of changing the value in the variable.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
