GUICreate as Second Win won't close ! :-(

Recommended Posts


I have my parent GUI, created everything and works fine if I close it but when I open the 2nd GUI with a button from parent GUI I cannot close it all, neither the parent GUI. I cannot understand why :-( Here is my code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include "GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3"
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#Include <WinAPI.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Local $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
Local $oIEAdv = _IECreateEmbedded()
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test1", 850, 880, _
        (@DesktopWidth - 850) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 880) / 2, _
; Declare a flag
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")
_GUIScrollbars_Generate($hGUI, 840, 880)
GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 10, 820, 700)
GUICtrlCreateObj($oIEAdv, 320, 725, 510, 95)
$Accounts = GUICtrlCreateButton("Accounts", 225, 720, 70, 20)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Accounts, "AccountMng")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Show GUI
; Intercept Windows command messages with out own handler
_IENavigate($oIE, "some URL")
_IENavigate($oIEAdv, "some URL")
; Waiting for user to close the window
While 1
  $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
  Switch $nMsg
Func AccountMng()
   $AccList = GUICreate("Form1", 203, 174)
   GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")
        Local $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Until $nMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

It does not close at all... it must be something wrong inside the 2nd GUI function, the loop.. right?

This Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) does not work with this Local $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(). You have to choose one method of reading controls or the other, you can't intermix them. With the first option set, the GUIGetMsg is always going to return 0.

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
