Input control and WM_COMMAND [SOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Artisan

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(@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)
ConsoleWrite("==========================================================" & @LF & @LF)
EndFunc

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.

      Hello everyone,
      I have a radio button ($Radio1), which I want to disable as soon as another one get's checked (Radio5). (The system fails if the radio button i'm troubling with also gets checked).
      I know how to disable him:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5), $GUI_DISABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5, 128) But if i try to enable $Radio5 again, after $Radio1 isn't checked anymore, it fails:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=Not 1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5), $GUI_ENABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5, 64)  
      Anyone knows why?

      Good evening everyone
      First, I want to apologize with you for the title not very clear, but I thought a little bit on which title to set at the thread, and this is the one that came in mind.
      Now, let me explain what I'm trying to understand.

      I am making an application ( with n clients ), with an SQLite Database, which has a Main form, and n sub-forms... 
      Since these sub-forms are called several times, because they are used to add or update records to the Database, I put the code that generates the GUI of these sub-forms in Functions.
      There are two sub-forms which are "treated" as two main forms, since even them have n sub-forms, which perform various tasks.
      Where am I stucked?

      For the Main form I created a Status Bar, in order to display messages ( add/delete/update/search results ), and it works perfectly with all the forms which don't have other sub-forms.
      For the two forms, which indeed have n sub-forms, I created two separated Status Bars, which are (re)created everytime I call the function that then displays the form.
      Practically, I can't set icons to these two Status Bars, and I don't know why.
      I'm really sorry that I don't feel clear enough, so, here you are an example of what I am saying.
      I recreated exactly what my script does:
      #include <GuiButton.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiStatusBar.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $frmSubForm, _ $txtSubFormField, _ $sbSubFormStatusBar, _ $objSB_IconError = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(109), _ $objSB_IconInformation = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(277) #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmMainForm = GUICreate("Main Form", 300, 300, -1, -1) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "ExitApplication") $sbMainStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmMainForm) $btnCreateSubForm = GUICtrlCreateButton("Create Sub Form", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "GenerateSubForm") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbMainStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbMainStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func ExitApplication() Exit EndFunc Func GenerateSubForm() #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmSubForm = GUICreate("Sub-Form", 300, 300, -1, -1, -1, -1, $frmMainForm) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "DeleteSubForm") $txtSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, 100, 20) $btnCheckSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Field", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "CheckSubFormField") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") $sbSubFormStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmSubForm) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbSubFormStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbSubFormStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### EndFunc Func DeleteSubForm() ; Declared Globally => $frmSubForm GUIDelete($frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $frmMainForm) EndFunc Func WriteToStatusBar($sbStatusBar, $objSB_Icon, $strText) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetIcon($sbStatusBar, 0, $objSB_Icon) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbStatusBar, $strText) ConsoleWrite("Icon Handle: " & $objSB_Icon & @CRLF) EndFunc Func CheckSubFormField() ; Declared Globally => $txtSubFormField If GUICtrlRead($txtSubFormField) = "" Then ; Declared Globally => $sbStatusBar WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconError, "Field NOK.") Else WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconInformation, "Field OK.") EndIf EndFunc The text is set, but icon is not.
      Could someone please tell me why?
      Thanks everyone in advance  

      Best Regards.

      Hi, everybody
      I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
      In other words:
          Any PC screen able to calculate the size
          To consider the Task bar size
          To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it

      Notes:
      In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
      Thanks a lot
      PS
      I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear
