Problem with selecting a file through FileOpenDialog

Recommended Posts

AlexChernavsky

I'm having a strange issue with using FileOpenDialog to select a file. Everything works fine the first time you select a file. But if you change your mind (while the program is still running) and want to select a different file, nothing changes. The program is "stuck" with the first selection you made, and nothing you do will change that selection in the input box.

I pulled the function below out of my program, and I had to modify it a bit to make it run on its own. But it's basically the same as the original.

To see the problem in action, click on either of the two buttons that say, "Choose other file...". Select any file from the list. Click on the "Open" button. So far, so good. Now, repeat the process again. See? The original file you selected is still listed in the input box.

I'm stumped by this one.

Thanks in advance.

The problem is due to you redefining your variable. In this section:

Case $hChooseInputFile
$sTemp = FileOpenDialog("Choose input file", @ScriptDir & "", "All files (*.*)", 1 + 2)
If $sTemp Then
$sInputFileName = $sTemp
$hInputFileName = GUICtrlSetData($hInputFileName, $sInputFileName & " ")
EndIf
GUICtrlSetState($hCondition, $GUI_FOCUS) ; Return focus to the "Continue" button

you don't need to say $hInputFileName = GUICtrlSetData($hInputFileName, $sInputFileName & " "). Instead, just set the data:

Case $hChooseInputFile
$sTemp = FileOpenDialog("Choose input file", @ScriptDir & "", "All files (*.*)", 1 + 2)
 If $sTemp Then
  $sInputFileName = $sTemp
  GUICtrlSetData($hInputFileName, $sInputFileName & " ")
 EndIf
GUICtrlSetState($hCondition, $GUI_FOCUS) ; Return focus to the "Continue" button

      My problem: if you move the child window at left upper corner to another place and move either H or V scrollbar the child GUI will be moved properly. BUT if you have scrolled the scrollbars to the right bottom of the image and move the child GUI to that corner, too then the child GUI jumps if you click on one of the scrollbars.
      Is there something that I didn't consider?

      Hi All,

      MAIN QUESTION:
      Is it possible to Call specific function within a GUI

      So I have a script with multiple functions although I don't want to use every function every time.
      My Idea is to create a simple GUI which allows me to select what functions I want to use then run the funtions by clicking a button.
      I have already made a GUI which allows me to select specific .exe's I would like to run after selection it runs the .exe one by one.
      This script is on my work laptops and cannot access it right now.
       
      Who can help me with this?
      GUIcreate
      Func1 
      Func2
      Func3
      Then have a boxes which allows me to select the specif Func.(I used GUIChecked and Unchecked in my other script)
      Then a button which executes/calls the selected functions

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

      Hello, 
      i have a Problem with  _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes, everything is working as excepted if u are on Windows 7.

      But if u are on Windows 10 the transparent background of a control is not clickable anymore. 

      Could someone help?

      Please see example below, put cmd.jpg into the same folder as Example.au3

      Please see trigger.jpg to see which sections are not clickable in Windows 10 (the red dots, the green dots are clickable) on Windows 7 the red ones and green ones are clickable.
       
      The same problem occurs if i use
