Is it possible to have 2 Close buttons?

5 posts in this topic

On the top bar of a gui where the red X button for close is.

Is it possible to add another red (or another colour) X button For a Close and Purge Temp files option, so they can choose to either close and remove the files of just close?.

They dont use menus so ill needs to be a button.

Or should i just use an normal gui button to achieve this?

I would use a normal GUI button to do this.

The three "buttons" on the upper right corner are for window management (minimize, maximize, close).

I would expect functions unrelated to window management to be on a button. I always have an "Exit" button in my GUIs and - if needed - would add a "Exit and delete temporary files" button.

Just my 0.02 $ worth.

Chimaera,

You could always do something like this to intercept the closure call: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUISetState()

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SYSCOMMAND, "_WM_SYSCOMMAND")

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func _WM_SYSCOMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

    Switch $wParam
        Case 0xf060
            MsgBox(0, "Hi", "Do what you like here")
            Exit
    EndSwitch

EndFunc

But I agree with water that it is best to have a separate button. ;)

After a bit of fooling around i have this that seems to work

Func _WM_SYSCOMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

Switch $wParam
     Case 0xf060
$msg = MsgBox(4, "Test", " Purge The Temp Files ")
If $msg = 6 Then
FileRecycleEmpty()
If $os_test = "V-" Then
_RemoveTemp(@HomeDrive & "\Temp")
_RemoveTemp(@WindowsDir & "\Temp")
_RemoveTemp(@HomeDrive & @HomePath & "\Local Settings\Temp")
Else
_RemoveTemp(@HomeDrive & @HomePath & "\AppData\Local\Temp")
_RemoveTemp(@WindowsDir & "\Temp")
EndIf
ConsoleWrite( "Yes" & @CRLF)
Exit
Else
ConsoleWrite( "No" & @CRLF)
Exit

EndIf
EndSwitch
EndFunc

So it gives me a choice then the worker can choose depending on the job he is doing

Now i just need to make it work with the full script

Many thx all

It's very common to warn a user to save changes or anything important that the user might have forgotten to do. For such situations use Melba's method. Not having purged temp files may or may not be important enough to add the extra complication, so I would also use a button (if that's what the program is meant to do).
