Change Input Background

10 posts in this topic

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.

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

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

      Hello,
       
      I have a script which uses a GUI with two buttons. It gets shown and hidden., and pressing the buttons (including their hotkeys) highlights the button, making you able to press enter the next time.
      However, I don't want that.
       
      I've tried using WinActivate() to make enter do things on another program, but the enter is still tied to the AutoIT GUI (which still has the button highlighted).
       
      Here's the important part of my code:
      $MY_GUI = GUICreate("Check.exe", 400, 300, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 200), -500) WinSetOnTop($MY_GUI, "", 1) ;Keeps the window on the top. $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pass (Ctrl+P)", 40, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fail (Ctrl+F)", 240, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $GUIText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 10, 360, 230) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 13, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUICtrlSetData($GUIText, Execute($stepMessage[$step])) $showGUI = "True" GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While($showGUI = "True") $buttonPressed = GUIGetMsg() Switch $buttonPressed Case $Button1 ;Pass $pass = "True" $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) Case $Button2 ;Fail $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) While($message = "") $message = InputBox("Check.exe", "Please enter the reason the step failed." & @CRLF, "", "", 300, 200, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 150), -400) WEnd Return $message EndSwitch WEnd Local $pass = "False" ;Whether "Pass" or "Fail" was pressed. Local $failLog = xxxfunc($pass) ;Returns a message to log if the step failed. ##THIS CALLS THE CODE SNIPPET ABOVE## FileWrite($file, _Now() & ": Step " & $step & getStatus($pass) & "and took " & Ceiling(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000) & " seconds." & @CRLF) If($failLog <> "") Then FileWrite($file, "Logged comment: " & $failLog & @CRLF) EndIf WinActivate("[TITLE:ProgramName]") ;Hotkeys: HotKeySet("^{p}", "pressPass") HotKeySet("^{f}", "pressFail") Func pressPass() $buttonPressed = $Button1 EndFunc Func pressFail() $buttonPressed = $Button2 EndFunc  
      The GUI's button/hotkey pressing works correctly.
      The same WinActivate code works in another script of mine.
      Together, WinActivate is not take "Active" away from the GUI's last-pressed button. How do I fix this?
       
      Thank you in advance.

      Dear AutoIT Community.
      I am currently working on a program that will display lots of images in a scroll down GUI.
      I create the GUI based on the number of images, which works fine.
      But all images I place using GuiCtrlCreatePic above a threshold of around 32000 pixels (cant say exactly) are placed at negative locations and finally will reach 0 again
      and will then populate on top of the images placed there before.
      For $i = 1 To $Images[0] ; Get picture dimensions $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ImgRep & $Images[$i]) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) ; Resize & place images in GUI $Pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic($ImgRep & $Images[$i], $Spacer, Round($yPos, 0), $MaxImgWidth, $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX)) $yPos = $yPos + $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX) + $Spacer $log = $log & "|" & $yPos $currentlut = $Images[1] Next I have found a limit at 32767 pixels for some GUI elements when googling around.
      Can someone tell me how to circumvent that?
      thanks!
      cheers

      Hello
       
      Is there anyway to store word documents in Autoit GUI? For example I have a instruction sheet that I want to bundle up with the exe.

      So a user simply clicks the icon and the stored document will launch  (Something like how you can add objects like excel sheets in word documents )

      (I Know we can launch word files from script directory)

      Not sure if this is possible or if someone has already tackled this. Is it possible to embed PowerShell into a GUI? Autoit is great for quick function but sometime I need to run a command thru PowerShell. It be great to have PowerShell console embedded into the gui.
