How do you create a passive GUI?

7 posts in this topic

Hey, I am very new to AutoIT Scripting language.

I want to create a GUI with only labels, (no buttons, no inputboxes, no Guigetmsg(), thus it doesn't have to return any keybindings or work with any variables. I just want it to show labels as a side-window to another window.

How do I do this?

I'm not understanding what the problem you're asking about is. Can you be more specific as to what it is you want to do?


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.

8218, it sounds as though you want a window to sit next to your main GUI, with only Labels so you can display text? If that is the case, why not just extend the size of your main GUI and add the labels in there?

The problem is I'm having a while loop running and I want a GUI running while my while 1 loop repeats the tasks

If you're doing a while loop that has nothing to do with the GUI, create one script with your GUI in it, and then use FileInstall to include it in your main script. Call the GUI executable from your main script, and then shut it down when you no longer need it.
