You're not looking to see if the buttons are being clicked in your While loop, check the help file for the GUICtrlCreateButton function for how to do that.

BTW, please don't discuss anything to do with game interaction as far as this script goes.


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.

Thank, I took a look at the GuiCtrlCreateButton function and I put the function into the While loop. When I do that Notepad opens up multiple instances to where It locks up my computer. Any other ideas? Below is what my code with revised changes.

Also I don't do anything with game interaction - I'm trying to create a Gui I can use to call different programs (excel spread sheet etc.. as well as displaying information on the Gui such as what's currently on the DR Information tab in the GUI. I found this GUI and really liked the format.. just trying to get the buttons to work..

Thanks for your help so far!

This is the code for the buttons to declare GuiCoorMode

Opt("GUICoordMode", 2)

Local $oBUTTON_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button 1', 10, 30, 140, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, 'Tahoma')

Local $oBUTTON_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button 2', 10, 60, 140, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, 'Tahoma')

Local $oBUTTON_3 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button 3', 10, 90, 140, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, 'Tahoma')

This is the code for the While Loop with revised changes

While 1
Local $eMSG = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $eMSG
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
Case $eMSG = $oBUTTON_1
Run ("notepad.exe")
Case $eMSG = $oBUTTON_2
MsgBox(0, 'Testing', 'Button 2 was pressed')
Local $iWINDOW_TRANS
For $iWINDOW_TRANS = 255 To 0 Step -10
If $iWINDOW_TRANS > 0 Then WinSetTrans($oWINDOW,'',$iWINDOW_TRANS)
Sleep(10)
Next
Exit
Case $oCLOSE
Local $iWINDOW_TRANS
For $iWINDOW_TRANS = 255 To 0 Step -10
If $iWINDOW_TRANS > 0 Then WinSetTrans($oWINDOW,'',$iWINDOW_TRANS)
Sleep(10)
Next
Exit
EndSwitch
WEnd
EndFunc

You're mixing the syntax for Switch and Select in that last bit of code.

I changed the syntax from switch to select and I'm getting a few errors. They are: Ref: missing wend, Error: syntax error and Error: missing wend) I put them below to where they are showing up in the code.

While 1
~REF: missing Wed

Local $eMSG = GUIGetMsg()
Select $eMSG
~ERROR: Syntax Error

Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
~ERROR: missing Wend

ExitLoop
Case $eMSG = $oBUTTON_1
Run ("notepad.exe")
Case $eMSG = $oBUTTON_2
MsgBox(0, 'Testing', 'Button 2 was pressed')
Local $iWINDOW_TRANS
For $iWINDOW_TRANS = 255 To 0 Step -10
If $iWINDOW_TRANS > 0 Then WinSetTrans($oWINDOW,'',$iWINDOW_TRANS)
Sleep(10)
Next
Exit
Case $oCLOSE
Local $iWINDOW_TRANS
For $iWINDOW_TRANS = 255 To 0 Step -10
If $iWINDOW_TRANS > 0 Then WinSetTrans($oWINDOW,'',$iWINDOW_TRANS)
Sleep(10)
Next
Exit
EndSelect
WEnd
EndFunc

Once again, you're mixing syntax. Select and Switch use different syntax when comparing values.

; Using Select
    While 1
        Local $eMSG = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $eMSG = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $eMSG = $oBUTTON_1
                Run("notepad.exe")
            Case $eMSG = $oBUTTON_2
                MsgBox(0, 'Testing', 'Button 2 was pressed')
                Local $iWINDOW_TRANS
                For $iWINDOW_TRANS = 255 To 0 Step -10
                    If $iWINDOW_TRANS > 0 Then WinSetTrans($oWINDOW, '', $iWINDOW_TRANS)
                    Sleep(10)
                Next
                Exit
            Case $eMSG = $oCLOSE
                Local $iWINDOW_TRANS
                For $iWINDOW_TRANS = 255 To 0 Step -10
                    If $iWINDOW_TRANS > 0 Then WinSetTrans($oWINDOW, '', $iWINDOW_TRANS)
                    Sleep(10)
                Next
                Exit
        EndSelect
    WEnd

Or:

; Using Switch
    While 1
        Local $eMSG = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $eMSG
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $oBUTTON_1
                Run("notepad.exe")
            Case $oBUTTON_2
                MsgBox(0, 'Testing', 'Button 2 was pressed')
                Local $iWINDOW_TRANS
                For $iWINDOW_TRANS = 255 To 0 Step -10
                    If $iWINDOW_TRANS > 0 Then WinSetTrans($oWINDOW, '', $iWINDOW_TRANS)
                    Sleep(10)
                Next
                Exit
            Case $eMSG = $oCLOSE
                Local $iWINDOW_TRANS
                For $iWINDOW_TRANS = 255 To 0 Step -10
                    If $iWINDOW_TRANS > 0 Then WinSetTrans($oWINDOW, '', $iWINDOW_TRANS)
                    Sleep(10)
                Next
                Exit
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
