Apply Hex Color to Main GUI from Pop Up Menu

3 posts in this topic

Hello Everybody,

This is my first official post even though I have been scouring the forums for a couple weeks now. I am a new program Hobbyist...just began learning Autoit/any language no earlier than the beginning of June. I am currently trying to figure out how to use the find Color under mouse and apply it from a pop up screen to a main GUI. I did find the main part of this code on one of these pages but I can't find where I originally started from...So thank you to whomever that was!

Issues I am facing:

  • When it does work it only works once
  • Can't seem to get the value of the Hex properly (tried different variations and my brain hurts now)
  • The main GUI doesn't refresh properly
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Questions:

  • Can my purpose be served better by applying read and write ini file?

    • Would it be possible to have the main GUI already have a saved HEX color if using ini that can be overwritting from pop up menu?
  • Would OnEvent be better?
Any help would be appreciated...been stressing out over this coding for the last few days!

You're reusing the variable name for the buttons on both GUIs, so when you call PopColor, the variable that holds the value from the first GUI gets overwritten by the handle to the button on the second GUI. Once you do that, the button on GUI 1 will never work again.


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.

Thanks for the reply BrewMan!

oh that was a mistake from seperating this code from a much bigger project...accidental copy paste and no double checking the variables. Lets say we Change the FIrst button to just $Find and then we change the second button to $update. Now what would be the best way to get those colors from the 2nd GUI onto the 1st GUI after pressing $update?

Is there any way to read the Hex value of a font? A way to read the Hex value of a Graphic Background? Since the GUICtrlRead, GetData, Etc. does not return a Hex value and as soon as the mouse is moved the pixel_last is now different. So how do I capture that state in which when the button is pressed records the value but then communicates that value when and only when $update is pressed.

My previous attempt I tried to write an INI file for every F8-11 it would iniwrite "0x"&Pixel_Last into the INI and then referenced a variable to be read in the script and then refreshed on button press such as $update but it didn't work the way I thought it would...seemed as though it lagged in recording/missed a button/didn't copy correctly.

      I have a GUI with a parent window that has a menu and shortcut buttons at the top, and a child window which displays a list which is scrolled vertically.
      When the list is relatively small, like no more than 100 or so lines then it scrolls fine.  As the list gets larger, scrolling begins to slow, and if you start mixing up the scroll method (mousewheel, left-clicking the scrollbar box, etc) then it begins to hang.  When it hangs, dwm.exe CPU usage maxes out, and I can't even switch to another window.  Each line in the list is 1000px wide X 30px tall, and the lines alternate between a gray background and a white background, in case that matters.
      When a non-Aero theme is active, everything works fine.  So, I could disable DWM every time someone fires it up, but changing a client's color scheme is not ideal.
      I tried to utilize _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Parent,  $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED), and although it succeeds in disabling DWM for that window, it doesn't seem to make any difference as far as the scrolling lag is concerned.
      The code is several thousand lines long and contains proprietary information, so I'm trying to avoid posting that, but these are the lines which are creating the GUIs.  Is there anything that anyone can think of off the top of their heads, or is there anything jumping out at you from this snippet of code?  Any help is appreciated!
      $oGui_Parent = GUICreate("Data Viewer", 700, 500, Default, Default, BitOR($WS_CAPTION, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_POPUPWINDOW)) WinSetTrans($oGui_Parent, "", 255) _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Parent, $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED) GUISetFont(9, 500, 0, "Calibri") GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF) $oGui_Child = GUICreate("", 700, 400, 0, 100, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $oGui_Parent) WinSetTrans($oGui_Child, "", 255) _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Child, $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED) GUISetFont(9, 500, 0, "Calibri") GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF)

      I would like to create a window like the one shown below. The requirements are as below
      1. The title bar should be opaque.
      2. The parent window/Main screen will be below the side menu/child window
      3. The left side of the side menu window should be opaque.
      4. The right side should be semi-transparent. 

       
      Any idea to help?

      Hi all,

      I am having a little trouble with ‘GUICtrlSetResizing’ an hoping someone could push me in the direction of best practice.

      I have a basic GUI created to a set size with the enabled abilities to resize it:

      GUICreate("Test", 500, 450, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX))

      Inside this I have an image and label:

      GUICtrlCreateLabel($Image1StampInfo, 10, 395, 480, 20, $SS_CENTER) GUICtrlCreatePic($TheImage, 25, 25, 450, 350)

      Using:

      Case ($GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE or $GUI_EVENT_RESTORE or $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED)

      I activate:

       
      GUICtrlSetResizing($TheImageBox, $GUI_DOCKAUTO) GUICtrlSetResizing($Image1Stamp, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)

      This works fine with the image but not with the label – the label after a bit of resizing seems to get stuck in different places in the GUI as if the $GUI_DOCKAUTO has not worked properly.

      So 2 questions if I may. 

      1)    Have I used $GUI_DOCKAUTO incorrectly for use with lables?

      2)    I am happy to manually set new sizes dynamically but how? I can get the size of the window with ‘WinGetPos()’ but how do I set new size parameters for the ‘label’ and ‘image’?

      Thank you in advance.

      Good evening guys ( almost good night here in Italy )  
      How are you? Hop you're fine  
      I'm trying to do a Login Form ( I did, but I'm missing something in the management ), that allows the user to login when the script is launched, and, when the main GUI is opened, the user can Logout and Login with another username and password.
      The username and password "checking" I do is done by a text file, which in there are username and password, crypted through _Crypt_EncryptData().
      The "issue" I'm having at the moment, is to manage the Login form when the user hasn't already done the login, and so, the main GUI is not visible, but is created...
      I create the main GUI after the Login form... I tried with WinActive, WinGetState, but nothing changed ( even at the first Login, the script says ( through a MsgBox ) that the Win does exists ( or is active... ) and, as I want, it is not shown again...

      I really don't know If I missed something, or, I don't know...
      I'm going crazy for this thing...
      If someone could help me, I'd really appreaciate it!
      Thanks for the reading

      Hello, 
      I'm wondering if it is possible to read a radio button off a GUI running by another program? 
      Someone created these Outlook emails that when open appear to be in a GUI format. I could easily come up with a way of navigating these fields by using tab inputs, and then copying specific fields that I need. However there is a spot on the form that has 4 choices of radio buttons, asking for what the status of the task is, and I have no idea how to store which one of these was pressed. 
      End game is to be able to go through thousands of these forms, take input from specific fields from this GUI form in outlook and copy into cells in an excel spreadsheet. I believe I could create a script to do everything I need, if I could just obtain the value from which radio button was pressed.
      Any advice on how to obtain which radio button was press in this outlook form would be appreciated.
      Thanks,
      If I knew VBA better Outlook might have its own functions for figuring this out.
       
      Example:

      In this example I'd want to be able to know that the 2nd or Assigned radio button was selected. Only 1 button is able to be selected at a time. I'm assuming the way to do this would be to tab through the form get to the first box and then run some command to check if pressed then if no, keep checking till I find which of the 4 were pressed.
