AutoScroll and return values

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a gui that includes a list which pulls it data from a txt file. What I was hoping for, is to get some help with getting a auto scroller that will highlight the line and then perform an action and display the results in a seperate readonly input box. In this case I have a list of computers (by name) that I would like to have ping every couple of seconds (one at a time) and display the results (either ping time or request timed out) in a seperate (read only) input box.

Here is what I have so far ...

GUICreate("Am I Asleep?", 500, 235)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$List = FileRead("C:\List.txt")
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 20, 20, 150, 150, BitOr($ES_READONLY, $WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 200) ; to limit horizontal scrolling
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $List)
Local $Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ping", 20, 200, 75)
Local $Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Wake Up", 100, 200, 75)
Local $Display1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 200, 20, 115, 20, $ES_READONLY)


While 1
Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit


Case $Button_1

local $var = Ping(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 250)

If $var <> 0 Then
GUICtrlSetData($Display1, $var & " ms", "")
GUICtrlSetBkColor($Display1, 0x00ff00)
GUICtrlSetColor ($Display1, 0x000000)

Else
;SplashTextOn("Error", @error, 100, 50)
;Sleep(1000)
;SplashOff()
GUICtrlSetData($Display1, " Request Timed Out ")
GUICtrlSetBkColor($Display1, 0)
GUICtrlSetColor ($Display1, 0xffffff)
; GUICtrlSetData($Input1, "")

EndIf

Case $Button_2
MsgBox(0, "Test", "Test")

EndSwitch

WEnd

Thanks

By the way, take note of the lines I had to add (<<<<<<<<<<<<<<) to get the basic posted script to even run. If you post an example, please make sure it runs - not everyone will take the time to add all the required includes, etc. ;)

Yes that is so close, let me apologize, I meant to copy and paste the #includes :(

Is there a way to set a timer? so that it waits 1 or 2 seconds and then moves onto the next line?

Thanks,

Grimm

grimmlock,

A timer like that is very easy to implement - use TimerInit/Diff and increase the index each time they fire. :)

Have a go yourself and see how you get on - you know where I am if you get stuck. ;)

So now is scrolls but does not return the correct results. Could you take a look at this and show me where I went wrong please?

If $var <> 0 Then
GUICtrlSetData($Display1, $var & " ms", "")
GUICtrlSetBkColor($Display1, 0x00ff00)
GUICtrlSetColor ($Display1, 0x000000)
;Sleep(1000)
Do
$iIndex = Mod($iIndex + 1, $iCount)
_GUICtrlListBox_ClickItem($Input1, $iIndex)
Local $Begin = TimerInit()
Sleep(3000)
Local $dif = TimerDiff($Begin)
Until @error

Thanks

grimmlock,

Rather than critique your code, I did it like this: ;)

I know, I know....I am going to post another question about this

What I want to do is have a drop down box containing several (subnets) and each time someone chooses one of the items it displays a different list

Here is what I have (could you please take a look at it :))

#include <File.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$List4 = ("Choose a Branch")
Local $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 20, 100, 10)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Pick One|Branch1|Branch2|Branch3", "Pick One")
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 120, 20, 150, 815, BitOr($ES_READONLY, $WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 200) ; to limit horizontal scrolling
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $List4)
Local $Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ping", 20, 840, 75)
Local $Display1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 300, 20, 115, 20, $ES_READONLY)

$iIndex = 0
_GUICtrlListBox_ClickItem($Input1, $iIndex)
$iCount = _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($Input1)

; Get a timestamp
$iBegin = TimerInit()

            ; Click the current item
            _GUICtrlListBox_ClickItem($Input1, $iIndex)
            ; Read the current item
            $sItem = GUICtrlRead($Input1)
            ; Simulate a Ping
            $var = Ping(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 999)
            If $var <> 0 Then

        EndIf
    EndIf

Case $Combo1
Switch GUICtrlRead($Combo1)
Case "Branch1"
GUICTRLSetData($Input1, "")
GUICTRLSetData($Input1, $List1)

Case "Branch2"
GUICTRLSetData($Input1, "")
GUICtrlSetData($Input1, $List2)

Case Else
GUICTRLSetData($Input1, "")
GUICTRLSetData($Input1, $List3)

EndSwitch

EndSwitch

WEnd

It seems to want to ping the first item on each of the list (so the selection of the "list" from the drop down box works) however it only wants to ping the top item and not scroll and ping like it used to.

Thanks

grimmlock,

You need to have the elements of the script in the correct place - you had the "If $fPing" line inside the $sButton1 Case structure so it only fired once as the button was pressed. :(

Take a look at this version: ;)

            ; Increase the index to select the next item
            $iIndex = Mod($iIndex + 1, $iCount)
        EndIf
    EndIf

WEnd

I have also changed a few other elements. You have a CueBanner in the combo (much nicer than an extra element); the combo is now disabled if you are "Pinging" (try selecting a new value in the combo if you do not do this ;)); recalculated the item count each time you select a new list; and showed how to replace the list in the edit with a single command.

All good now? :)

grimmlock,

Just code exactly as you described: ;)

hide the Listbox at app startup

Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("Choose a branch", 120, 20, 150, 815, BitOR($ES_READONLY, $WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 200) ; to limit horizontal scrolling
; Hide the list on creation <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)

have the listbox show when a "branch" is selected

Case $Combo1

Should I start a new post?

Would an array be the best solution (in this case) if I wanted to have a text file (with a computer name, IP address, and mac address) and create a new button that when pressed would use the data in the file to do a wake on lan?

I already have the wake on lan script. It just requires the ip address and mac address (which I have) for the computers in my text file.

Please let me know if I need to create a new post :)

Thanks

Grimm

grimlock,

With so little information on how exactly you are collating and using the data it is impossible to say whether an array would be the "best" solution. Certainly using an array allows you to use a single index value to access all the information available - which is why they are so useful and an essential part of a preogrammer's toolkit. :)

As to opening a new thread - if the question is not really related to the previous posts, I would recommend a new thread every time. ;)

However my next question which still relates to this post (I think)

Is there a way to associate a display name (TestPC) with a hidden IP, so that when I select the PC TestPC or TestPC2 is automatically knows the IP of those 2 computers?q

If so how would I go about doing this?

Thanks

Grimm

grimmlock,

Assuming you know these "hidden IPs" (see what I mean about giving us more info ;)) then an array would be a good way to link the 2 items as the same index would let you access both items of information. This should show you how to do it. :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

; Declare the array holding the PC names and their IPs
Global $aServers[2][2] = [["PC 1", "test.test1.test1"], ["PC 2", "test1.test1.test1"]]

GUICreate("test", 400, 400)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Local $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 100, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "test|Branch Servers")
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 50, 100, 50)
Local $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notepad", 200, 50, 100, 100)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        Case $Combo1
            Switch GUICtrlRead($Combo1)
                Case "Branch Servers"
                    ; Create a list of the PC names from the array
                    $list1 = ""
                    For $i = 0 To UBound($aServers) - 1
                        $list1 &= "|" & $aServers[$i][0]
                    Next
                    GUICtrlSetData($Input1, $list1)
                Case "test"

            EndSwitch

        Case $button1
            Local $Input3 = GUICtrlRead($Input1)
            ; Find the PC in the array
            $iIndex = _ArraySearch($aServers, $Input3)
            ; Did we find a match?
            If $iIndex <> -1 Then
                ; Get the associated IP and trim as required
                Local $Input4 = StringTrimRight($aServers[$iIndex][1], 12)
                Run("Notepad.exe")
                Sleep(1000)
                Send($Input4)
                Sleep(1000)
            EndIf

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Make sense However using this script, if I have multiple text files all of which look like this

192.168.x.202 testpc02.testnet.local 0023ae77bf9d

192.168.x.203 testpc01.testnet.local 0019d1f613c4

192.168.x.204 testpc03.testnet.local 0019d1f613be

192.168.x.205 testpc05.testnet.local b8ac6f25fc46

192.168.x.206 testpc04.testnet.local 0023ae786fbe

How would get this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <String.au3>

GUICreate("test", 400, 400)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$list1 = FileRead("C:\test.txt") ; <<<<<< file contains list of PCs listed above
$list2 = FileRead("c:\test2.txt") ; <<<<<<<< file contains just test123

Local $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 100, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "test|Branch Servers")
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 50, 100, 50)
Local $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notepad", 200, 50, 100, 100)
Local $button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Wake On Lan", 200, 200, 100, 100) ; I want to be able to run my Wake On Lan function using the above PC information


While 1
Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

Case $Combo1
Switch GUICtrlRead($Combo1)
Case "Branch Servers"
;~ ConsoleWrite("Hit" & @CRLF)
GUICtrlSetData($Input1, "|" & $list1)
Case "test"
;~ ConsoleWrite("Hit" & @CRLF)
GUICtrlSetData($Input1, "|" & $list2)
EndSwitch

Case $button1
Local $Input3 = GUICtrlRead($Input1)
Local $Input4 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12)

If StringInStr(GuiCtrlRead($Input1), ".local") Then
Run("Notepad.exe")
Sleep(1000)
Send($Input4)
Sleep(1000)
Else
Run("Notepad.exe")
Sleep(1000)
Send($Input3)
Sleep(1000)
EndIf

Case $button2
WakeonLan()


EndSwitch
WEnd

Func WakeonLan()

$IPAddress = ; IP address of selected item in list box
$MACAddress = ; MAC address of selected item in list box


UDPStartUp()

$connexion = UDPOpen($IPAddress, 7)
$res = UDPSend($connexion, GenerateMagicPacket($MACAddress))
MsgBox(0, "", $res)

UDPCloseSocket($connexion)
UDPShutdown()

EndFunc

; ===================================================================
; Functions
; ===================================================================


; This function convert a MAC Address Byte (e.g. "1f") to a char
Func HexToChar($strHex)

Return Chr(Dec($strHex))

EndFunc

; This function generate the "Magic Packet"
Func GenerateMagicPacket($strMACAddress)

$MagicPacket = ""
$MACData = ""

For $p = 1 To 11 Step 2
$MACData = $MACData & HexToChar(StringMid($strMACAddress, $p, 2))
Next

For $p = 1 To 6
$MagicPacket = HexToChar("ff") & $MagicPacket
Next

For $p = 1 To 16
$MagicPacket = $MagicPacket & $MACData
Next

Return $MagicPacket

EndFunc

The end script will have 18 lists :

grimmlock,

Just who is writing this script - you or me? :D

I would solve your problem like this:

- Save all the lists as "List_1.txt", etc.

- Then amend the script so that you read the relevant list when selected in the combo like this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

; Declare a Global array to hold the data for the currently selected list
Global $aPCData

GUICreate("test", 400, 400)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Local $cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 100, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "List_1|List_2|List_3") ; So you have all the lists able to be selected from the combo
Local $cList = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 50, 100, 50)
Local $cButton_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notepad", 200, 50, 100, 100)
Local $cButton_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Wake On Lan", 200, 200, 100, 100)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        Case $cCombo
            ; Read the selection
            $sSelection = GUICtrlRead($cCombo)
            ; Open the file and get back a a list
            $sList = _ReadFile($sSelection)
            ; Fill the List with that data
            GUICtrlSetData($cList, $sList)

        Case $cButton_1

        Case $cButton_2

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _ReadFile($sFileName)

    ConsoleWrite(@ScriptDir & "\" & $sFileName & ".txt" & @CRLF)

    ; Read the required file into an array
    Local $aFileContents
    _FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\" & $sFileName & ".txt", $aFileContents)
    ConsoleWrite(@error & @CRLF)
    ; Now transfer the data in that array into one we can use

    ; Firstly resize the global array which we use elsewhere
    Global $aPCData[$aFileContents[0] + 1][3]
    ; And reset the list contents
    Local $sList = ""

    ; Now loop through the data transferring it to the new array and to to the list we display
    For $i = 1 To $aFileContents[0]
        ; Split the line on the spaces
        $aSplit = StringSplit($aFileContents[$i], " ")
        ; And add the 3 parts to the larger array
        $aPCData[$i][0] = $aSplit[2]
        $aPCData[$i][1] = $aSplit[1]
        $aPCData[$i][2] = $aSplit[3]
        ; Then add the name to the list
        $sList &= "|" & $aSplit[2]
    Next

    ; And just for interest, this is what we get in the array
    _ArrayDisplay($aPCData)

    ; Finally return the list to be added to the control in the GUI
    Return $sList

EndFunc

- Use the technique of searching the array to find the other associated data you need as I showed you a few posts above - it is now all in the $aPCData array. :)

All clear? ;)

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.
