Closing individual tab

4 posts in this topic

I have been working on a log viewer for a bit, and with help from the great people on this forum have got the basic GUI down. Now, I need to be able to close single instances of a tab. I created a "Close Tab" button to perform this action...but I have tried the GuiCtrlTab_DeleteItem function and GuiCtrlTab_Destroy function neither have the desired affect...please help.

Here is my code.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>#include <GuiTab.au3> 

; Global variables should be declared OUTSIDE functions
Global $aTabData[1][3] = [[0]] ; 0=tab 1=file 2=edit

mainGUI()

Func mainGUI()

; Create the GUI
GUICreate("Log Viewer", 800, 700)
GUISetBkColor(0x00E0FFFF)
GUISetFont(9, 300)

$cTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 780, 640)
$Fing = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fing", 20, 670, 100, 20)
$Find = GUICtrlCreateButton("Find", 200, 670, 100, 20)
$new = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open", 550, 670, 100, 20)
$close= GUICtrlCreateButton("Close Tab", 700,670,100,20)

; Read a file before showing the GUI so that the tab and edit are create before we show the GUI
openNew()

; Now show the GUI
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

; Note there is only the one GUIGetMsg loop in the script
While 1
Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
Case $Fing
Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "C:\fing.lnk")
Case $Find
; Which tab is displayed
$iIndex = GUICtrlRead($cTab) + 1
; So now we know which edit is displayed
_GUICtrlEdit_Find($aTabData[$iIndex][2])
Case $new
openNew() ; Every time we want a new tab we call the function again
Case $close
$iIndex=GUICtrlRead($cTab) + 1
_GUICtrlTab_DeleteItem($cTab,$iIndex)
EndSwitch
WEnd
EndFunc ;==>mainGUI

Func openNew()

; Choose a file
Local $var = FileOpenDialog("", @WindowsDir & "\", "Log Files (*.txt;*.log)", 1)
; Open it
Local $file = FileOpen($var)
If $file = -1 Then
MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
Exit
EndIf
; Read it
$textx = FileRead($file)
If @error Then ; If you check for error it must be IMEDIATELY AFTER the function you check
MsgBox(4096, "", "No File(s) chosen")
Else
$var = StringReplace($var, "|", @CRLF)
MsgBox(4096, "", "You Chose " & $var)
; Create the tab and edit for this file ONLY if it was read
$aTabData[0][0] += 1
ReDim $aTabData[$aTabData[0][0] + 1][3]
$aTabData[$aTabData[0][0]][0] = GUICtrlCreateTabItem($var)
$aTabData[$aTabData[0][0]][1] = $var
; Sorry, you do need the NOHIDESEL style to see the found text
$aTabData[$aTabData[0][0]][2] = GUICtrlCreateEdit($textx, 20, 40, 760, 600, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_EDIT, $ES_NOHIDESEL))
ConsoleWrite("Edit: " & $aTabData[$aTabData[0][0]][2] & @CRLF)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
EndIf
; Close file
FileClose($file)

EndFunc ;==>openNew

It works for me if you don't use + 1 in the second line.

Case $close
    $iIndex = GUICtrlRead($cTab)

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.

Ah that fixes the issue...sorta. See, it closes current active tab, but the file is still open...

You close the file right after you read it in, so how is it still open?
