Flickering Input Box

Recommended Posts

cheeseandcereal

So I was writing this program and I wanted my input box to be enabled when I checked a checkbox and disabled when the checkbox is unchecked. I replicated the problem with this code:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 131, 103, 192, 124)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Enable", 8, 8, 97, 17)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 24, 48, 57, 21)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

EndSwitch
If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_ENABLE)
ElseIf GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_UNCHECKED Then
GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_DISABLE)
EndIf
WEnd

When running this code, the program functions properly but the input box flickers inbetween the enabled and disabled state. Does anyone know how I might go about fixing this problem?

cheeseandcereal,

Use a flag to indicate the current state of the input and only enable/disable it when the checkbox and flag disagree: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$fEnabled = False

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 131, 103, 192, 124)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Enable", 8, 8, 97, 17)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 24, 48, 57, 21)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
    If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_CHECKED And $fEnabled = False Then
        GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_ENABLE)
        $fEnabled = True
    ElseIf GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_UNCHECKED And $fEnabled = True Then
        GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_DISABLE)
        $fEnabled = False
    EndIf
WEnd

All clear? :)

You can do this way without flag... ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 131, 103, 192, 124)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Enable", 8, 8, 97, 17)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 24, 48, 57, 21)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Checkbox1
            If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_ENABLE)
            ElseIf GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_UNCHECKED Then
                GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_DISABLE)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

wakillon,

Quite right - and much more elegant. :)
