How to set and read a radiobox when the radio was generated by Program.

7 posts in this topic

Can someone help put me on the right track here.. I have never tried to read a control when it was generated by program... so I am not sure how to read and tic and untic the boxes since I am not sure what the name of the control is..

The only thing I need help with at this point is making the 4 buttons talk to the program generated radio boxes...

In other words I just need to know how to make the buttons here talk to the radio boxes..

$readone = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read One", 50, 160, 100, 25)

$tickone = GUICtrlCreateButton("Tick One", 200, 160, 100, 25)

$untickall = GUICtrlCreateButton("Untick All", 50, 200, 100, 25)

$tickall = GUICtrlCreateButton("Tick All", 200, 200, 100, 25)

Pay no attention to my Case messages.. as none of them work.. that is just things I was experimenting with in an attempt to talk to the radios but none work... of course.

Thanks for any help.

That works great. Thank you very much..

Case $msg = $untickall

; Uncheck All

For $1 = 1 To 16

GUICtrlSetState($radio[$i], $GUI_UNCHECKED)

Next

Just noticed that you accidentally put a 1 for the i in the For loop... I do that all the time so it was not a problem for me but if you still have eidting capability you might want to fix it for those who may use it in the future as they try to learn also. $1 vice $i... Thanks again it was very helpful...

Corrected the above script, thanks for the heads up. I hate when I make simple mistakes like that.

That simple correction might save several folks a lot of head scratching in the future.. as you just never know how many trainees.. in the future will load that script and try to learn from it.... Here is a funny... I swear it worked correctly the way it was when I loaded it the first time and I never even noticed a problem until I moved it above the other tab.. and then it failed... and I said "self" what the hell difference could it make it I simply switch tab positions.. but then realized the error and all was well..... As you can see I have been a busy little beaver just building one program after the other... and would never have been able to do it without all the help from all you Master Programmers...

I noticed you changed my Dim to Global.... the Dim's seem to work ok... but someone suggested the other day that I stop using the Dim and use Global... I have not noticed any failures using the Dim... is that basically a NO NO when using AutoIT... as the Dim seems to work... just curious... I think I need to start using Local a lot more as I am ending up with just to darn many Global... its just not something I am used to but starting to get the hang of using Local.....

Dim can cause issues in scripts when using it in a function. Global and Local should be the standard statements to use for declaring variables. Only use Local if it's being used in a function.
