2 inputs and execute gui

14 posts in this topic

i'm trying to make a simple gui to do a xcopy command.

i know there are lots of examples out there, but i want to learn how to do this.

my simple gui has 2 input, orginal destination and final destination.

when i click the xcopy button, the xcopy switches will already be "programmed" in the button.

i'm just having a hard time passing the 2 inputs and the button to execute

i understand a little about the variables, just don't know how to piece them together

here is what i have so far

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include < GuiButton.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("xcopy gui", 523, 312, 193, 125)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Source", 16, 24, 38, 17)
$input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 48, 465, 21)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Destination", 16, 104, 57, 17)
$input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 128, 465, 21)
$xcopy = GUICtrlCreateButton("xcopy", 16, 184, 89, 57, 0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###
While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
EndSwitch
WEnd



Func xcopy($xcopy)
Run(@ComSpec & " /c xcopy /e /v /f /h /k /o /i ")



EndFunc

Hi, pcjunki. You are nearly there. The only thing I would change is your While statement. Something like this:

No need to pass the $xcopy variable when calling the xcopy function

While 1
Local $msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
Case $msg = $xcopy
xcopy()
EndSelect
WEnd

For the xcopy function itself, I would do something like this:

Func xcopy()
ShellExecuteWait("xcopy.exe", GUICtrlRead($input1) & ' ' & GUICtrlRead($input2) & ' /e /v /f /h /k /o /i')
EndFunc

i made the change, now the gui closes, and nothing copies

here's what i have

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include < GuiButton.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("xcopy gui", 523, 312, 193, 125)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Source", 16, 24, 38, 17)
$input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 48, 465, 21)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Destination", 16, 104, 57, 17)
$input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 128, 465, 21)
$xcopy = GUICtrlCreateButton("xcopy", 16, 184, 89, 57, 0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
Local $msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
  Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   ExitLoop
  Case $msg = $xcopy
   xcopy()
EndSelect
WEnd
Func xcopy($xcopy)
Run(@ComSpec & " /c xcopy /e /v /f /h /k /o /i ")

I made an edit to show how I would do the xcopy function. It is working for me.

i just did some testing, and i don't think the xcopy switches are caring over

no permissions were set on files i xcopied

i'm still having issues with this line

Func xcopy()
ShellExecuteWait("xcopy.exe", GUICtrlRead($input1) & ' ' & GUICtrlRead($input2) & ' /e /v /f /h /k /o /i')
EndFunc

the /e /v /f /h /k /o /i is not being passed off to the xcopy command

i've added a local varialbe, thinking it might help with spaces and quotes, but still no luck

the variable is in the xcopy function called $Var1

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include < GuiButton.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("xcopy gui", 523, 312, 193, 125)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Source", 16, 24, 38, 17)
$input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 48, 465, 21)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Destination", 16, 104, 57, 17)
$input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 128, 465, 21)
$xcopy = GUICtrlCreateButton("xcopy", 16, 184, 89, 57, 0)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
Local $msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
Case $msg = $xcopy
xcopy()
EndSelect
WEnd


Func xcopy()
Global $Var1 = '/e /v /f /h /k /o /i'
ShellExecuteWait ("xcopy.exe", GUICtrlRead($input1) & ' ' & GUICtrlRead($input2) & ' ' & $Var1)
EndFunc

It works for me if you don't use the /O option, that option is causing an access denied error message for me, and the copy never occurs.


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.

Have you tried RoboCopy instead of xcopy?
