AutoScroll and return values

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>

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 $Display1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 300, 20, 115, 20, $ES_READONLY)

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

; Get a timestamp

            ; 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: ;)

#include <File.au3>

            $iIndex = Mod($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? :)

Can I ask one more question, how do I hide the Listbox at app startup and when no branch is selected, However have the listbox show when a "branch" is selected?

Thanks

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 $Combo1
    ; Show the list now there is a selection <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_SHOW)
    Switch GUICtrlRead($Combo1)

All clear? :)

This is what I was missing, thank you

; Show the list now there is a selection <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_SHOW)

All Clear :)

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


Thanks

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

All clear? :)

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? ;)

      I have a workplace GUI that has a search field function that pulls up customer records to allow changes. I am attempting to 1)LOGIN 2)Enter Search field, enter a number and then {ENTER} 3)change specific field once customer record loads. I have very limited experience in GUI manipulation but I am able to login using the below:

When I "inspect element" in the Search field I get the attached:

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      Hello,
      As I was searching this forum I came along something intresting what was new to me.
      CUI/GUI hybrid.
      Whish sounds very usefull to me to compile it all into 1 script.
      So i was fideling around whit it but couldn't get it to work.
      In the real script (not this simplified version) i got a lot of functions whish i can use whan talking to it by commandline and switches.
      I could not get this to work and hope somebody could give me some pointers on how to make it work.
      Also I was hoping iff somebody could help me whit the /? function?
      (I don't know how to output the help text back to the commandline or the function that can help me do it)
      please advice and thanks in advanced.

      Hello,
      I have used this forum to get help many times. I thought it was time to (hopefully) help others.
      I created a script that reads a text file with a list of videos, displays the videos in a GUI with checkboxes next to the names, and displays the selected videos. This will become a part of a larger script I am creating to test a video player. The tough part for me was creating the GUI and Dynamic list of videos. I had a lot of trouble finding samples to help me, but finally found one  written by Melba23. The link is in the code, so he gets credit for helping! I also have not used arrays much and they are very picky about looping through the arrays without getting the dreaded error " Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded."  However diligence paid off!
      To run this code, take the video names commented below and create a videos.txt file in your script execution directory. You can put however many video names in this list. Thus the dynamic features of the code.
      Cheers!

      Hello Forum,
      As said in the title, I'm searching a way to disable all tabstops in a GUI. My GUI includes 15 buttons and 3 edit controls.
      My questions:
      - is there a way to disable all tabstops at a time
      - is there a way to list all controls of a GUI and then disable tabstops one by one
      - or should I use the following line after each button creation:
      _WinAPI_SetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE, BitAND(_WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE), BitNOT($WS_TABSTOP))) Thanks in advance for your valuable help!
      Thoms
      Edit: or maybe disable TAB key? I don't remember how to do!
