GUICtrlCreatePic Issues

16 posts in this topic

Right, I've been racking my brain for a little while about this now, I've created a GUI sample for a design project in uni, however I can't get the pic function to work. We are designing a screen that will show time, date and some events etc. The code is below, and its the two GUICtrlCreatePic function calls that are the issue. They don't do anything, at all!

#cs
This is a script to run and display a GUI for EG-M62 group project
It will call a window that will show the funtionality desired for the PC interaction of our product
#ce
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
$today= @YEAR & "/" & @MON & "/" & @MDAY
buildGUI()
while 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
  ExitLoop
Case $msg = $close
  $close_response = MsgBox(1,"Warning","Close without saving?")
  Select
  Case $close_response = 1
   ExitLoop
  EndSelect
Case $msg = $button
  progress("Saving")
  $ok_response = MsgBox(64,"Complete", "Please reinsert USB into the base of the light")
  Select
  Case $ok_response = 1
   ExitLoop
  EndSelect
Case $msg = $fact_reset
  MsgBox(48,"Warning","Pressing ok will reset all values to default, and erase any stored events")
  progress("Resetting all data")
  MsgBox(64,"Completed","Reset completed")
Case $msg = $update
  MsgBox(64,"Update","About to update the calendar files")
  progress("Updating; please wait")
Case $msg = $exitfilemenu
  $close_response = MsgBox(1,"Warning","Close without saving?")
  Select
  Case $close_response = 1

adz89,

Are you sure you have a valid path in those 2 statements? @WorkingDir defaults to the script folder and does not have a final "\" - so your path is currently "Script_Folder...\GUI\Info.jpg". Does not look very likely to work to me. ;)

When I put a valid path in those lines I get the images displayed - try doing the same. :)

@adz89

Why are you using @WorkingDir anyway? Do you know what a working directory is? You probably want @ScriptDir

Well I thought that would have been the way to go about it, I've come from a MATLAB programming background, so I'm having a bit of difficulty trying to get the syntax right.

I've adjusted the script to now read

GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "GUIScreen.jpg",10,270,100,100)
GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "GUIInfo.jpg",$m-110,$n-113,100,100)

but it still doesn't work...

The only thing I can say about this is, are you sure those are valid paths?

@ScriptDir returns the path your AU3 script is ran from.

_Mouse_UDF

Well I've created the GUI folder within the folder that the script is, and of course the correct file name/extension

adz89,

Just to be sure that you are using the correct paths, try running FileExists with the same strings as you use in the script and see if that returns 1. That will tell you if the script is looking in the right place. :)

Well I added this;

$check = FileExists(@ScriptDir & "GUIScreen.jpg")
If $check = 1 Then
MsgBox(0,"Success","File Exists")
ElseIf $check = 0 Then
MsgBox(0,"Fail","File not found")
EndIf

and it said that the file exists.

adz89,

And yet using those same strings with GUICtrlCreatePic fails? :)

Try creating a GUI with only those 2 image controls within it and see if you can get them to work in that case. ;)

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
  ExitLoop
EndSelect
WEnd

func buildGUI()

adz89,

I created the same folder structure as you and my images showed up without problem using your code - so I have no idea what is going on. :)

Really clutching at straws here, but I take it the images do actually have some content that you can see against the GUI background? Do they show up in other apps such as Paint? Have you tried using other images in their place? ;)

Well I'm out at the moment, but I'll try other images later, but the images can be open in picture viewer, and are both .jpg's...

I'll let you know how it goes with other images.

Ok, I got it working, not sure what the problem was though. I renamed the non-working pic from screen to disp_ex and left it as a jpg, and resaved the jpg file to be a bmp...

All working now though!

Thanks for the help guys, if anyone's interested I'll post the working, final script later!

      I have a workplace GUI that has a search field function that pulls up customer records to allow changes. I am attempting to 1)LOGIN 2)Enter Search field, enter a number and then {ENTER} 3)change specific field once customer record loads. I have very limited experience in GUI manipulation but I am able to login using the below:
      #include <IE.au3> Const $navOpenInNewTab = 0x0800 Dim $oIE = _IECreate('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/ASAG/index.htm') Call ("RacksheetSignIn") Func RacksheetSignIn () Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"uname") Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"pword") $oIE.Navigate2('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/apps/RackSheets/LogInSAG/login.asp',2048) _IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "xxxxxxx") _IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "xxxxxxx") Send('{Enter}') EndFunc However I can't seem to use the _IEGetObjByName or Mouseclick to focus on the search field to allow me to enter my search criteria. When I "inspect element" in the Search field I get the attached:
       
      Any help would be MUCH appreciated

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      Hello,
      As I was searching this forum I came along something intresting what was new to me.
      CUI/GUI hybrid.
      Whish sounds very usefull to me to compile it all into 1 script.
      So i was fideling around whit it but couldn't get it to work.
      In the real script (not this simplified version) i got a lot of functions whish i can use whan talking to it by commandline and switches.
      I could not get this to work and hope somebody could give me some pointers on how to make it work.
      Also I was hoping iff somebody could help me whit the /? function?
      (I don't know how to output the help text back to the commandline or the function that can help me do it)
      please advice and thanks in advanced.

      Hello,
      I have used this forum to get help many times. I thought it was time to (hopefully) help others.
      I created a script that reads a text file with a list of videos, displays the videos in a GUI with checkboxes next to the names, and displays the selected videos. This will become a part of a larger script I am creating to test a video player. The tough part for me was creating the GUI and Dynamic list of videos. I had a lot of trouble finding samples to help me, but finally found one  written by Melba23. The link is in the code, so he gets credit for helping! I also have not used arrays much and they are very picky about looping through the arrays without getting the dreaded error " Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded."  However diligence paid off!
      To run this code, take the video names commented below and create a videos.txt file in your script execution directory. You can put however many video names in this list. Thus the dynamic features of the code.
      Cheers!

      Hello Forum,
      As said in the title, I'm searching a way to disable all tabstops in a GUI. My GUI includes 15 buttons and 3 edit controls.
      My questions:
      - is there a way to disable all tabstops at a time
      - is there a way to list all controls of a GUI and then disable tabstops one by one
      - or should I use the following line after each button creation:
      _WinAPI_SetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE, BitAND(_WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE), BitNOT($WS_TABSTOP))) Thanks in advance for your valuable help!
      Thoms
      Edit: or maybe disable TAB key? I don't remember how to do!
