[Solved] Converting from AHK to AU3 - Gui Checkbox

Recommended Posts

Crazyace

Hello everyone,

I'm working on a rather large project for my company and we have ran in to a snag with using AutoHotKey. We use a forked version of it called AHK_L. We ran into some issues with IE8+ and we are wanting to see if AutoIT v3 will help us get past that issue. Here is a scipt that we use that causes issues for us.

What the code below does, is present you with a message box that has an input and 3 options. The option that's not working for us is the driver option. When we run our code we get COM errors in IE8+ but not in IE6 and 7.

So what I would like to do is convert this to AutoIT v3 and see how much coding it takes and what it would look like. So what I plan to do is start posting some of the code that I'm converting in small snipits to make sure that I'm on the right track. I'm not looking for someone to convert the whole script for me, becuase I won't learn anything about AutoIT. I want to thank everyone in advance for any help provided.

Sorry about that, I didn't recall seeing that in the rules. I'll make sure to double check them, because I was about a sleep when posting last night. I checked over the help file but it wasn't much help. One thing that I tried to figure out was how to get to the last option in the "Tooltip". I thought something like
Tooltip("1) Driver" & @CR & "2) Warranty",,,,2)
would work but it just errors. The last option allows it to be in the center of the main montior from what I understand. Edited by Crazyace

I mean no disrespect to the members here and your right. I'll work on this later today and post about snipets that are failing to work for me.

This might make it simpler for you

Quoting the help file

To skip an optional parameter, leaving its default value intact, use the Default keyword.

Also be sure to re-read the last option where you have the 2. That centers the tip in relation to x and y; not in relation to the screen.

Updated my OP. Right now I'm working on the check box gui with an input. Here is the code that I have so far.

GUICreate("Drivers/Manuals/Warranty", 280, 110)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

$Driver = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Drivers", 10, 10)
$Manual = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Manual", 80, 10)
$Warranty = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Warranty", 150, 10)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Service Tag #:", 10, 45)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 90, 40)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit", 40, 70, 50)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 150, 70, 50)

Sleep(30000)

Here is what I have so far of my gui and I have a few questions below.

  • How can I have the driver box auto checked when the gui is launched?
  • If Driver is checked and the user inputs a service tag into the input box how can I have it fire this

    url = [url="http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection"]http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection[/url]
              pwb :=   ComObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
              ;navigates to the url
              pwb.Navigate(url)
              pwb.visible := true
              While ((pwb.readyState <> 4) || pwb.busy)
                ;Sleep, 10
              frame :=   pwb.document.all["iFramePSHost"].contentWindow
              frame.document.all["TheProductSelectorResultsModel_ServiceTagCode"].value := $input
              frame.document.all.btnSubmit[0].click()
I'm going to guess that my COM code from AHK won't work here, but it's just to show what I'm trying to do. Edited by Crazyace

Hello Crazyace,

#1) Use GUICtrlSetState() to set the state of controls.

;This will set the checkbox control to checked
GUICtrlSetState( $Driver, $GUI_CHECKED )
;just as this example will set it's state as unchecked.
GUICtrlSetState( $Driver, $GUI_UNCHECKED )

Embedded with your code, you will get this:

$Driver = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Drivers", 10, 10)
GUICtrlSetState( -1, $GUI_CHECKED )
$Manual = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Manual", 80, 10)
$Warranty = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Warranty", 150, 10)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Service Tag #:", 10, 45)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 90, 40)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit", 40, 70, 50)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 150, 70, 50)

#2) You will want to use GUICtrlGetState() to retrieve the state of a control

GUICtrlGetState($Driver)

to perform a _Function() when this is checked you would:

If GUICtrlGetState($Driver) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _Function()

Sorry to verify, but you are right that your AHK com code will not work properly with AutoIt. However, and on a brighter side, if you read up on IE.au3 UDF in your help file, I am certain you will find it moderately easy to convert your AHK code to better interact with AutoIt.

Some functions that may help are:

_IECreate() ;To create com object with Internet Explorer
_IENavigate() ;Navigates
_IELoadWait() ;Sleep function while the page loads

Good Luck & Happy Coding!

Realm,

Thanks so much for your kind reply. I'm going to check out the IE.au3 file for sure. When the submit button is clicked how can I fire the code?

I had updated to this

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
GUICreate("Drivers/Manuals/Warranty", 280, 110)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$Driver = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Drivers", 10, 10)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)
$Manual = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Manual", 80, 10)
$Warranty = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Warranty", 150, 10)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Service Tag #:", 10, 45)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 90, 40)
$Submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit", 40, 70, 50)
$Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 150, 70, 50)

Crazyace,

I am sorry I didn't fully explore your code last time, and just went directly to answering your questions. I have modified your code a bit so that it will perform more to your needs. I noticed from your original post you had a large sleep function at the bottom to keep your GUI open. When a button is pressed during sleep mode, it will not perform your needs. You need to create a loop after your gui creation to watch for user input and activity. Hope this helps a bit.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Drivers/Manuals/Warranty", 280, 110)

$Driver = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Drivers", 10, 10)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)
$Manual = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Manual", 80, 10)
$Warranty = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Warranty", 150, 10)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Service Tag #:", 10, 45)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 90, 40)
$Submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit", 40, 70, 50)
$Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 150, 70, 50)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $msg = $Submit
            $serv_tag = GUICtrlRead($Input)
            If GUICtrlGetState($Driver) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _Fire($serv_tag)
        Case $msg = $Exit
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd

Exit 0

Func _Fire($sServiceTag)
    ;IE functin that will handle $sServiceTag that is the passed input read from control $Input
EndFunc

Realm

Edit: If you are using Scite, this only works for the AutoIt version that was included with the standard Install, to create your scripts, you may also type 'setupgui' then press space and it will create a basic template shell of a gui window code for you, including the while loop.

Crazyace,

When you see brackets, '[' ']', in the parameter explanations within the helpfile, these are not meant to be used inside the actual code, they are merely symbolic for the parameter is optional.

$input is the variable pointer to your GUICtrlCreateInput() control.

When 'Submit' is pressed, it will read the user input from that control into the variable $serv_tag. Afterwhich it will pass $serv_tag to the function _Fire(). If you look at function _Fire(), you will see that it accepts 1 parameter that will be assigned to variable $sServiceTag. This is the variable that now holds the user's input to which can be used within function _Fire().

I highly recommend reading The first section of the Help file, to get a better understanding of how AutoIt works, especially with Functions.

I am not sure why you have the url pasted twice in your post. You don't need tags either. _IECreate() will also return an object variable that points to InternetExplorer.Applicaton (the controls behind the browswer your attempting to open). So give it a variable to return to, so you have a way to manipulate the window further.

$oIE = _IECreate("http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/manuals?c=us&l=en&s=biz&~ck=ln&lnki=0&ServiceTag=" & $sServiceTag)
_IENavigate($oIE, $another_url)

I did not test this example, however and in theory providing the url is correct as you have posted, this should work for you. Remove the _IENavigate(), I added that so you could visualize how the object handling will be performed.

Realm,

Thanks for the reply. When looking at my post, the forums messed up and put in the hyperlink and the URL. The help file now that I know how to use it has been a great help and I now understand gui's much better. At first I was really confused by the $msg = GUIGetMsg() part but now I understand that all GUI's will be a Msg loop or event loop.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

GUICreate("Drivers/Manuals/Warranty", 280, 110)

$Driver = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Drivers", 10, 10)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)
$Manual = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Manual", 80, 10)
$Warranty = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Warranty", 150, 10)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Service Tag #:", 10, 45)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 90, 40)
$Submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit", 40, 70, 50)
$Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 150, 70, 50)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $msg = $Submit
            $serv_tag = GUICtrlRead($Input)
            If GUICtrlGetState($Driver) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _Fire($sServiceTag)
        Case $msg = $Exit
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd

Exit 0

Func _Fire($sServiceTag)
   $oIE = _IECreate("http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/manuals?c=us&l=en&s=biz&~ck=ln&lnki=0&ServiceTag=" & $sServiceTag,1 ,1 ,0)
EndFunc

With the code above the Submit button fails to fire the function and I can't understand why. I looked at the help file and everything looks fine. Do I need to put the function in the top of the file?

Zedna,

Thanks for the help that works perfect. May I ask why we added

Func IsChecked($control)
    Return BitAnd(GUICtrlRead($control),$GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
EndFunc

      Why this  For loop for GUICtrlSetState($CheckBox&$i, $GUI_UNCHECKED) does not work properly
      I have $CheckBox1, $CheckBox2.......till $CheckBox26 and with For $i = 1 To 26 it does not work. It only unchecks few of them, but not all.
      Later I have discovered that For $i = 7 To 19 removes  $CheckBox1 to  $CheckBox13 and For $i = 23 To 35 removes  $CheckBox14 to  $CheckBox26
      Any idea why?

      Hi guys! I have these checkbox that I'm trying to click on. They have the same inner-text string but a different ID. Sometime there can be as many as 4 checkbox
      with the same string but the ID is always different. I tried a few methods down below but I'm unable to make any real results. Any suggestions or solutions I would
      appreciate it very much.
      <ul><li class="cx-list-item-wrapper" data-day="Aug 2 2018 07:27:37 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)"><div class=""><div class="cx-list-item-container"><div class="cx-list-item cx-item-icon-2 pointer-cursor"><div class="cx-item-contents cx-item-time col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 675 -->Morning<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 676 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 678 -->OTHER<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 679 -- >&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 681 -->8:30 AM<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 682 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 684 -->10:30 AM<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 685 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text -- ></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 687 -->SRV<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 688 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div></div></div><div class="pull-right cx-listitem-chk"><div><input id="cx_checkbox1" class="cx-fa-chk cx-selfschedule-chk" value="on" type="checkbox"><label for="cx_checkbox1"></label></div></div></div></li><li class="cx-list-item-wrapper" data-day="Aug 2 2018 07:27:37 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)"><div class=""><div class="cx-list-item-container"><div class="cx-list-item cx-item-icon-2 pointer-cursor"><div class="cx-item-contents cx-item-time col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 698 -- >Morning<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 699 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 701 -->OTHER<!-- /react- text --><!-- react-text: 702 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 704 -->8:30 AM<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 705 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 707 -->2:30 PM<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 708 -- >&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 710 -->SRV<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 711 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div></div></div><div class="pull-right cx-listitem-chk"><div><input id="cx_checkbox2" class="cx-fa-chk cx-selfschedule-chk" value="on" type="checkbox"><label for="cx_checkbox2"></label></div></div></div></li></ul> I tried the _IETagNameGetCollection() but it only check the box but doesn't fire the event! And I'm unable to submit that without a click action.
      Func _Box1() $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id == "cx_checkbox1" Then $oInput.checked = true Next Sleep(10) ToolTip('box1') EndFunc ;==>_Box1 I also tried click by text.The boxes do get check by a click but the problem with that is it will select every box that has the same string. I'm allowed only to check 1 box selection at a time per day for the submit button to work.  Any preference to select only the second box and bypass the other?
      Func _Morning() For $a In _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") If StringInStr(_IEPropertyGet($a, "innerText"), "Morning") Then _IEAction($a, "click") EndIf Next Sleep(10) ToolTip('Morning selected') EndFunc ;==>Morning The last method I tried was _IEGetObjById(). It doesn't click or respond to the checkbox.
      Func _Click1() $oChk = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "cx_checkbox1") _IEAction($oChk, 'click') Sleep(20) ToolTip('box1') EndFunc ;==>_Click1

      for some script I need to investigate the states checked/unchecked, hidden/shown, enabled/disabled to several checkbox controls.

      Hello,
      I am struggling in merging GUITreeViewEx, Shelltristate and enhancing to handle a third state that means : some items under are selected.
      I have difficulties handling expand order and key Space (especially when node is collapsed).
      Here the zip with UDF and and example.
       
      The problem I might need some advice to handle : 
      1- When load Treeview, have a correct settings of the checkbox for a tristate tree
      2 - Handle keyboard used for walking in tree
           Chicken is checked and  Steak is unchecked
          When walking with arrow to Meat, it gets unchecked
      3 - When node is collapsed and checked thru keyboard (space)
         the middle state is possible which should not
      Here is joined an animated gif showing the 3 problems
       
      Thanks for your advices

      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!
