Change Input Background

Recommended Posts

grimmlock

Good afternoon

I am sure that this question has been asked and answered however I have been searching for the past several hours and have yet to come across the answer that I need.

Here is the code I created

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Main()

Func Main()

GUICreate("Ping", 200, 100) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

Local $Hostname1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 60, 15, 125)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xffffff)
Local $Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Host 1: ", 10, 18, 50)
local $Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ping", 80, 65, 100)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
Case $Button_1
Ping(GUICtrlRead($Hostname1), 250)

local $var = Ping(GUICtrlRead($Hostname1), 250)

If $var Then
MsgBox(0, "Ping", "Pinging... " & " roundtrip was " & $var & " ms")
GUICtrlSetBkColor($Hostname1, 0x00ff00)
GUICtrlSetColor ($Hostname1, 0x000000)
Else
MsgBox(0, "Error sending message", "Error code:" & @error)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($Hostname1, 0)
GUICtrlSetColor ($Hostname1, 0xffffff)

EndIf


EndSwitch

WEnd

EndFunc

What I was hoping to do is be able return the $var and not only change the color of the background of the Input box but also (in the input box) ping time.

Thanks

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by...

What I was hoping to do is be able return the $var and not only change the color of the background of the Input box but also (in the input box) ping time.

What are you trying to achieve that you haven't been able to? Because your code changes the back ground color of the input box to either black or green depending upon the return from the ping.


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.

grimmlock,

Changed the code slightly. I do not understand why ping returns a 0 the first time you click the button with a blank input box. Subsequent clicks on a blank input box generate an error, as expected.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Main()

Func Main()

    GUICreate("Ping", 200, 100) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    Local $Hostname1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 60, 15, 125)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xffffff)
    Local $Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Host 1: ", 10, 18, 50)
    Local $Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ping", 80, 65, 100)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit
            Case $Button_1

                Local $var = Ping(GUICtrlRead($Hostname1), 250)
                local $saveerr = @error

                If $var > 0 Then
                    ;MsgBox(0, "Ping", "Pinging... " & " roundtrip was " & $var & " ms")
                    guictrlsetdata($Hostname1,'Round Trip = ' & $var & ' ms')
                    GUICtrlSetBkColor($Hostname1, 0x00ff00)
                    GUICtrlSetColor($Hostname1, 0x000000)
                Else
                    GUICtrlSetData($Hostname1,"Send error = " & $saveerr)
                    GUICtrlSetBkColor($Hostname1, 0)
                    GUICtrlSetColor($Hostname1, 0xffffff)

                EndIf


        EndSwitch

    WEnd

edit: additional info - If I add a space in the inputbox definition it works as expected.

edit2: NVM - ran ping from a cmd console with host = "". It looks like it defaults to whatever host it is running on.

It doesn't. I entered google.com and it worked first time. Edited by guinness

      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

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.
