Multiple GUI confused

22 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I do apologize if this is the wrong area for this, but it doesn't have much to do with the GUI, mainly the code.

Here is my problem. I have 2 GUI's created in the same script, using functions. It works great, when I press a button, it opens up the next GUI. When I press a button in the new GUI, it opens a third GUI. The problem I am having is that when I open the second GUI, I need the first one to close. Here is what I have so far. For some reason, I can't seem to find any help in the help docs.

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

$Intro = GUICreate("Welcome", 472, 309, 192, 124)

$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("We will go through all of the steps of each programming option in the TruTops Mark Program itself.", 3, 72, 465, 17, $SS_CENTER)
$Label4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("First, If you noticed, the door to the machine has already opened.", 80, 88, 310, 17, $SS_CENTER)

Exit
Case $msg = $_mainMenu

EndSelect
WEnd
EndFunc

Before I go. I'm not looking for an easy way out. I am looking for a more complicated way of doing this because I learn better when it makes me think. I believe that when I figure this out I will be able to complete more projects.

Thank you in advance.

you can try to use only one main loop with one $msg = GUIGetMsg() in it and it will (that will) recive msgs from all guis, in that loop you can handle msgs from all 3 gui-s

so instead creating new guis and trapping your self in 3 loops, just create one loop and create or hide guis according to your need with no additional loops

when you create one gui you can delite oldone with GUIDelete but if your using one loop i whud suggest hidding instead deliting with GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) and or predeclare variables

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
Example()
Func Example()
Local $Button_1, $Button_2, $msg
$gui1 = GUICreate("My GUI Button1",Default,Default,0,0)
$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button Test 1", 0, -1)
GUISetState()
$gui2 = GUICreate("My GUI Button2")
$Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button Test 2", 0, -1)

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
     $msg = GUIGetMsg()
     Select
         Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
             ExitLoop
         Case $msg = $Button_1
             GUISetState(@SW_HIDE,$gui1)
             GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$gui2)
             MsgBox(0, 'Testing', 'Button 1 was pressed')
         Case $msg = $Button_2
             GUISetState(@SW_HIDE,$gui2)
             GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$gui1)
             MsgBox(0, 'Testing', 'Button 2 was pressed')
     EndSelect
WEnd
EndFunc ;==>Example

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

I find it funny that when you correctly spell the word recursion on Google search it gives you "Did you mean: Recursion ", so as BogQ says, probably some kind of google joke.

A crash isn't likely to happen in this script, but bad programming technique none-the-less.

Hey everyone, I do appreciate everything. I know I don't have very good etiquette when it comes to programming, I am an animator that is dabbling. I am writing this for the place I work. I don't plan on being there forever and am writing a cheat sheet for the guy that will one day take my place (whoever that will be). I looked over the code and will try it out as soon as I can. I will post the results when I can.

Since my order of scripting is not in the correct order, I was wondering if someone can point me in the direction of a program that could show me the correct structure to use. The help docs don't really do that. Like I said, I haven't been in this scene for long. So any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks again,
