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

  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

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.

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. ;)

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!

      Hello all ~
      I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2.  Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc.  Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully.  The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue.  The network share opening gives me issues.  Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead.  I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer.  I have also attempted to use the letter drive mapped to the network share (Z:) and receive the same result.  When I run this script on Windows 10 alone without  the VM or the ESXi I am able to open the network share without problems.  I have tried to use the net use command to designate a letter M: to the network share folder prior to running the script.  This did not work for me.  
      One additional avenue I think might work is to use the systreeview321 and _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem to step through the tree looking for the network share.  Once found,  double click on it and see if that opens the shared network folder.  I can click inside the VM with my mouse on the network share and it opens just fine.  Not sure if running up against GUI issues, or permission issues, or what?
      Thanks in advance,
      Davida Crozier

      This script is a subset of a much larger program, but it illustrates what I am dealing with.

      Hi everyone,
      GUICtrlSetState Function example ,i found $GUI_DROPACCEPTED isn't working in windows10 x64(windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64).
      if the example put to windows10 x86 or windows xp, the $GUI_DROPACCEPTED is effective,
      the AutoIt Edition is v3.3.14.2.
      any ideas? thanks you.

      Hey Guys,
       
      So, the functions work, where primarygui() accurately determines the evaluation of the status of the checkboxes - the msgbox picks this up.
       
      However, later on, when we re-enter a 'for $i = 0 to ubound($checkbox)' loop, then in the 'batchinitial' function it doesn't picked up that the status&$i = 1, so it jumps out, then within the While 1 loop, it exits the loop in the first row, again because the status& $i= 0
      The "assign" line within the primarygui funtion, is this only a local assignment? if so, how can I make it cross function?
       
      Thank in adv for your help

      Hello everyone !
      While writing a sample of code to test ping to my internet box, I got stuck..
      While the code is Pinging with let say.. 5000ms of timeout, I need to update a progress bar from 0 to 5000 ms at the same time but I don't know how could I do this..
      Is there a way or something that could get around the pause of the ping like in InetGet -> InetGetInfo?

      Here are two functions to provide pixel-accurate height and width dimensions for a given string.
      The more commonly-used _GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString built-in UDF is problematic because it returns the width padded by roughly one en-space (for reasons related to the various ways Windows produces anti-aliased fonts).
      These are AutoIt translations of Pierre Arnaud's C# functions, described in his CodeProject article "Bypass Graphics.MeasureString limitations"
      The first is an all-purpose version that takes a window handle, string, font family, font size (in points), style, and (optionally) width of the layout column (in pixels) as parameters.
      The second, more efficient version is intended for applications where GDI+ fonts are already in use, and takes handles to the existing graphics context, string, font, layout and format as parameters.
      Both functions return a two-row array with the exact width [0] and height [1] of the string (in pixels).
      EDIT: (Note that some of the same anti-aliasing measurement issues still apply. I did my best to work around them, but the output of the function may still be off by a pixel or two. Buyer beware.)
      #include <GDIPlus.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _StringInPixels ; Description ...: Returns a pixel-accurate height and width for a given string using a given font, style and size. ; Syntax ........: _StringInPixels($hGUI, $sString, $sFontFamily, $fSize, $iStyle[, $iColWidth = 0]) ; Parameters ....: $hGUI - Handle to the window. ; $sString - The string to be measured. ; $sFontFamily - Full name of the font to use. ; $fSize - Font size in points (half-point increments). ; $iStyle - Combination of 0-normal, 1-bold, 2-italic, 4-underline, 8-strikethrough ; $iColWidth - [optional] If word-wrap is desired, column width in pixels ; Return values .: 2-row array.
