Koda does not generate code for updown component

Recommended Posts

Posted Image

First, I didn't even have a context and updown1 didn't get generated. Then, I read in the helpfile that contextmenu is required (why?). So, I created a context menu with Koda and linked it to updown1's properties. But it still does not generate the updown code. I assume it is because of the context menu becuase the font is red. How can I generate the code in this little example?

Is it true that required fields are either red or green and red means there is a problem?

When I expand the context menu properties the children are green.

Even when I create an input control in Koda, it does not generate the updown code.

What's weird is that the following works (skipping the use of Koda completely):

GUICtrlCreateLabel("UpDown", 350, 115)
GUICtrlCreateInput("42", 350, 130, 40, 20)

Two things puzzle me:

1. What happens when you pass in -1 as the ID?

2. How does AutoIt know that it needs to associate the Updown with the Input without referncing the ID?

When a control ID is needed for a function, -1 will refer to the last control created, in this case the input control.

BTW, the help file doesn't say you need a context menu to create an UpDown control, you need an input control for it, as you found out in your second post.

Koda is a frame for your script, it doesn't do everything, and what it does do usually has to be tweaked after you've created the code because it makes assumptions about your script that you may not want. This is probably one of those things that need to be tweaked after it's been done in Koda.

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.

In Koda do this:

- place input and updown control on the form

- click on Input control and in Object Inspector set up "UpDown" property

- -> when you click on combobox's arrow you will see name of your UpDown control

Code is then generated without problems.


Colors in Object Properties dialog (as far as I know):

- red: those that can be linked to other controls

- green: events
