Input control and WM_COMMAND [SOLVED]

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I've been studying WM_NOTIFY and WM_COMMAND for a hobby project I'm working on. At this point, I'm trying to capture the WM_COMMAND event that happens when the focus is on the Input control and the user presses the ENTER key. I know I could do this via _IsPressed(), but I'd really rather do everything from within WM_COMMAND and WM_NOTIFY. It just seems like better coding practice. Anyway, this is probably simpler than I think it is, but I'm really stuck.

I made a script that outputs WM_NOTIFY and WM_COMMAND events to the console as they happen. Here's my problem. When I press ENTER while the focus is on the Input control, this is the output I get:

==========================================================
Event: WM_COMMAND (unknown)
$hWnd: 0x00050408
$iMsg: 273 $WM_COMMAND: 273
$iwParam: 0x00000001 $iIDFrom: 1 $iCode: 0
$ilParam: 0x00000000
11:45:42:740
==========================================================

It looks like a command is coming from nowhere ($ilParam = 0) and doing nothing. Can anyone help me understand this? I've been all over the AutoIt Forums and MSDN and I'm still not understanding. I was expecting to see a key code for the ENTER key somewhere, or some kind of message like $WM_INPUT_CONFIRM or something.

Here's the script I wrote to get the output:

Global Const $tagNMHDR = "struct;hwnd hWndFrom;uint_ptr IDFrom;INT Code;endstruct", _
$WM_COMMAND = 0x0111, _
$WM_NOTIFY = 0x004E, _
$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE = -3, _
$GUI_RUNDEFMSG = 'GUI_RUNDEFMSG'

Global $gui = GUICreate("ComboBox Listener", 300, 300)
Global $combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Item 1|Item 2|Item 3|Item 4|Item 5|Item 6")
Global $input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 100)
Global $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 200)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "WM_NOTIFY")
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "WM_COMMAND")

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() == $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Func WM_NOTIFY($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
#forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam
Local $hWndFrom, $iIDFrom, $iCode, $tNMHDR
$tNMHDR = DllStructCreate($tagNMHDR, $lParam)
$hWndFrom = HWnd(DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "hWndFrom"))
$iCode = DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "Code")

Switch $hWndFrom
Case GUICtrlGetHandle($combo)
WM_Output("WM_NOTIFY", $iCode, "Combo")
Case GUICtrlGetHandle($input)
WM_Output("WM_NOTIFY", $iCode, "Input")
Case GUICtrlGetHandle($button)
WM_Output("WM_NOTIFY", $iCode, "Button")
Case $gui
WM_Output("WM_NOTIFY", $iCode, "GUI")
Case Else
WM_Output("WM_NOTIFY", $iCode, $hWndFrom)
EndSwitch
Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc

Func WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
#forceref $hWnd, $iMsg
Local $hWndFrom, $iIDFrom, $iCode
$hWndFrom = $ilParam
$iIDFrom = BitAND($iwParam, 0xFFFF)
$iCode = BitShift($iwParam, 16)
Switch $hWndFrom
Case GUICtrlGetHandle($combo)
WM_Output("WM_COMMAND", $iCode, "Combo")
Case GUICtrlGetHandle($input)
WM_Output("WM_COMMAND", $iCode, "Input")
Case GUICtrlGetHandle($button)
WM_Output("WM_COMMAND", $iCode, "Button")
Case $gui
WM_Output("WM_COMMAND", $iCode, "GUI")
Case Else
ConsoleWrite("==========================================================" & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("Event: WM_COMMAND (unknown)" & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("$hWnd: " & $hWnd & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("$iMsg: " & $iMsg & @TAB & "$WM_COMMAND: " & $WM_COMMAND & @LF)

ConsoleWrite("$ilParam: " & $ilParam & @LF)
ConsoleWrite(@HOUR & ':' & @MIN & ':' & @SEC & ':' & @MSEC & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("==========================================================" & @LF & @LF)
EndSwitch
Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc

Func WM_Output( $Event, $iCode, $Control )
ConsoleWrite("==========================================================" & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("Event: " & $Event & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("$iCode: " & $iCode & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("Control: " & $Control & @LF)
ConsoleWrite(@HOUR & ':' & @MIN & ':' & @SEC & ':' & @MSEC & @LF)

You can use it just like this:

$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE = -3

Global $gui = GUICreate("ComboBox Listener", 300, 300)
Global $combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Item 1|Item 2|Item 3|Item 4|Item 5|Item 6")
Global $input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 100)
Global $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 200)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $input Then ConsoleWrite('Event from input control, value: ' & GUICtrlRead($input) & @CRLF)
WEnd

But this event is fired also when you change focus from input control to other control (and only when Enter is pressed on focused input control).

You may look here at example of WM_COMMAND for input control

Thanks. I've already got a decent handle on WM_COMMAND, so this wasn't quite what I was looking for. (I just wanted to know when the user finished inputting.)

You can use it just like this:

$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE = -3

Global $gui = GUICreate("ComboBox Listener", 300, 300)
Global $combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Item 1|Item 2|Item 3|Item 4|Item 5|Item 6")
Global $input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 100)
Global $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 200)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
If $msg = $input Then ConsoleWrite('Event from input control, value: ' & GUICtrlRead($input) & @CRLF)
WEnd

But this event is fired also when you change focus from input control to other control (and only when Enter is pressed on focused input control).

That's PERFECT! ALso, *facepalm* for not thinking to try that myself. That's exactly what I needed.

      Hi,
      I am automating the testing of a video player. I search a file for ".mp4" and want to create a GUI with radio buttons to select what video to play. The number of videos can change based on the user's library so this must be created automatically.  I have searched for how to accomplish this and there are several posts out there that help a little but I can't figure out the solution. I pulled the offending code from my main script and created the file below to make this easier to read. I am sure one of our experts here can help!
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> #include <array.au3> #include <File.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Local $sMediaFile = "D:\MediaFiles\MediaFiles.txt" Local $iStrReturn = 0 Local $aText Local $aArrayFile Local $iMax = 6 ;Default number of Videos - 1 for the array counter Local $aVideoName[$iMax] = [0] Local $sCheckBox1 Local $iT = 0, $iVideoCount = 0, $iCount Local $ix = 0 Local $iy = 0 Local $idClose1 Const $iL = 10 ; Count from Left for GUI so all buttons line up ;~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ; ; Read a list of video file names and create a GUI with Radio Buttons to select a single video. ; Problem: We don't know how many video names will be in the text file, so we can't hard code Case Statements & their variables ; Put the Video File Names into an Array _FileReadToArray($sMediaFile, $aArrayFile) For $a = 1 To $aArrayFile[0] ; Step through the array looking for .mp4 If StringInStr($aArrayFile[$a], ".mp4") Then $iVideoCount = $iVideoCount + 1 $aText = StringSplit($aArrayFile[$a],"\\") ; This video player reads double backslashes For $a1 = 1 to $aText[0] ; Check that the array is big enough If StringInStr($aText[$a1], ".mp4") Then ;MsgBox(0,"","Video is " & $aText[$a1]) If UBound($aVideoName) = $iVideoCount Then ; Resize the array when $iCount is equal to the element count in the array to prevent subscript error ReDim $aVideoName[$aVideoName[0] + $iMax] EndIf $aVideoName[$iVideoCount] = $aText[$a1]; add data to new index element $aVideoName[0] = $a1 ; update the index count for future reference ; The idea is to create a GUI width to accommodate long video file names $it = StringLen($aVideoName[$iVideoCount]) If $iT > $ix Then $ix = $iT EndIf EndIf Next EndIf Next ; Move backwards through the array deleting blank rows For $iCount = UBound($aVideoName) - 1 To 0 Step -1 If $aVideoName[$iCount] = "" Then _ArrayDelete($aVideoName, $iCount) EndIf Next ;~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ; ; Create the GUI - Names and Radio Button counts will vary - How do I do this?

      Hi Developers,
       
      While trying to find a way to actually style/skin the GUICtrlCreateTabItem, I read the help file and stated:
      My question to you guys is will this be updated? or am I hoping for something that will never come to pass?
      I've seen scripts between 2007 to 2009 allowing the tabs to be modified
      Reason for my question is I'm trying to make my GUI Tabs look more modern.
      Thanks in advance for reading my post.

      I am trying to get the results of a radio button selection. I have tried implementing sample scripts but to no avail.
      Can someone tell / show me what I am doing wrong?
