[SOLVED] Dynamic GUI Creation

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm try to create a gui can be create element by itself. This is what i have done:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIResizeMode", BitOR($GUI_DOCKTOP, $GUI_DOCKLEFT, $GUI_DOCKSIZE))

Global Const $Element_For_Column = 5 ; Max number of element for column
Global Const $Max_Element = 15 ; Number of total element
Global $iCount = 1 ; Number 1 is used for basic element
Global $Move_Top, $Move_Left, $Temp_iCount
Global $Input_[1][1], $Label_[1][1], $Button_[1][2]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Dynamic GUI", 233, 107, -1, -1)
$Label_A1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("This is a label n°1", 8, 26, 90, 17)
$Input_A1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 8, 43, 161, 21)
$Button_A1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 176, 41, 51, 25)
$Button_A2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Input", 8, 72, 75, 25)
$Button_Minus = GUICtrlCreateButton("-", 176, 2, 19, 25)
$Button_Plus = GUICtrlCreateButton("+", 210, 2, 19, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $msg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
Case $Button_A1
GUICtrlSetData($Input_A1, "You have clicked button 1")
Case $Button_A2
_Test_Func($Input_A1)
Case $Button_Plus
_Add_Element()
Case $Button_Minus
Delete_Element()
Case Else
For $i = 0 To UBound($Button_, 1) - 1
    Switch $msg
     Case $Button_[$i][0]
     GUICtrlSetData($Input_[$i][0], "You have clicked button " & $i + 1)
     Case $Button_[$i][1]
     _Test_Func($Input_[$i][0])
    EndSwitch
Next
EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _Test_Func($Value)
MsgBox(0, 0, "This is the value of Input: " & GUICtrlRead($Value) & @CRLF)
EndFunc ;==>_Test_Func

Func _Add_Element()
Global $hGUISize_Height = 89, $hGUISize_Width = 250
Local Const $Size = WinGetPos($hGUI)
$Temp_iCount += 1
$iCount += 1
$Move_Top += 90
If $Temp_iCount = $Element_For_Column Then
If $iCount <= $Max_Element Then
WinMove($hGUI, "", Default, Default, $Size[2] + $hGUISize_Width, Default)
_Middle($hGUI, "")
$Move_Top = 0 ; reset top
$Move_Left += 250 ; create left vaule
$Temp_iCount = 0 ; reset temp_element
EndIf
EndIf
If $iCount <= $Max_Element Then
ReDim $Label_[$iCount][$iCount]
ReDim $Input_[$iCount][$iCount]
ReDim $Button_[$iCount][$iCount * 2]
If $iCount <= $Element_For_Column Then
$Label_[$iCount - 1][0] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("This is a label n°" & $iCount, 8, 26 + $Move_Top, 90, 17)
$Input_[$iCount - 1][0] = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 8, 43 + $Move_Top, 161, 21)
$Button_[$iCount - 1][0] = GUICtrlCreateButton($iCount, 176, 41 + $Move_Top, 51, 25)
$Button_[$iCount - 1][1] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Input", 8, 72 + $Move_Top, 75, 25)
WinMove($hGUI, "", Default, Default, Default, $Size[3] + $hGUISize_Height)

$Button_[$iCount - 1][0] = GUICtrlCreateButton($iCount, 176 + $Move_Left, 41 + $Move_Top, 51, 25)
$Button_[$iCount - 1][1] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Input", 8 + $Move_Left, 72 + $Move_Top, 75, 25)
EndIf
EndIf
If $iCount > $Max_Element Then
$iCount = $Max_Element
$Temp_iCount = $Element_For_Column - 1
EndIf
EndFunc ;==>_Add_Element

Func Delete_Element()
Local Const $Size = WinGetPos($hGUI)
Local $Temp_Move_Top = 90 ; Equal to $Move_Top
If $iCount = 1 Then ; No element
$iCount = 1
Return
Else
GUICtrlDelete($Label_[$iCount - 1][0]) ; delete element
GUICtrlDelete($Input_[$iCount - 1][0]) ; delete element
GUICtrlDelete($Button_[$iCount - 1][0]) ; delete element
GUICtrlDelete($Button_[$iCount - 1][1]) ; delete element
EndIf
If $iCount <> 0 Then
If $iCount <= $Element_For_Column Then
WinMove($hGUI, "", Default, Default, Default, $Size[3] - $hGUISize_Height) ; resize gui
_Middle($hGUI, "")
EndIf
EndIf
If $Temp_iCount = 0 Then ; New Column
WinMove($hGUI, "", Default, Default, $Size[2] - $hGUISize_Width, Default) ; resize gui
_Middle($hGUI, "")
$Move_Left -= 250 ; Remove left value
$Temp_iCount += $Element_For_Column ; Remove new colum
EndIf
$iCount -= 1 ; Delete one count
$Temp_iCount -= 1; Delete one temp count
If $Move_Top = 0 Then ; Equal to start posizion
$Move_Top = $Temp_Move_Top * ($Element_For_Column - 1)
Else
$Move_Top -= 90 ; Delete one position
EndIf
EndFunc ;==>Delete_Element

Func _Middle(Const $win, Const $txt) ; Snippet Valuater - cdkid
Local Const $Size = WinGetClientSize($win, $txt)
Local Const $y = (@DesktopHeight / 2) - ($Size[1] / 2)
Local Const $x = (@DesktopWidth / 2) - ($Size[0] / 2)
Return WinMove($win, $txt, $x, $y)
EndFunc ;==>_Middle

1) The gui can create element but the size of the width is good only for the second element, then increase every 3°, 4° etc.

2) Buttons don't work because i don't know how to set in the While...WEnd and the realtive function

3) I don't know how to make the creation of 3 element for column until the $Max_Element is reached

4) I don't know how to delete group element ( except the first )

Thanks ;)

EDIT: No more to go, if someone has suggestion/improvement just ask ;)

I'll leave deleting them as an exercise for you. =)

I have resolved the 99% of the problems with Delete_Element() ( i have updated the script on the first post ) i have only the last

When i created 6 element ( with 5 = Max element for column, so it created a new column with 1 element ) and i try to delete the 6° and recreate it, work fine and no problems

When i created 6 element ( with 5 = Max element for column, so it created a new column with 1 element ) and i try to delete the 6° and the 5° ( the result is only one column with four element ) and recreate the 5° again, i don't see anything

Tips?

EDIT: I have resolve the last problem, seems work fine now. Waiting for expert if the have improvement-suggestion on this script. Thanks

      I use SetSoundDevice to control my audio devices but the UI was either
       
      blurry like this:
      or unusable like this:

      so I made this horrible thing to add scaling to the GUI:

      And now it looks good: 
      but it doesn't work on everything, for example the "GUICtrlCreateLabel("Output type: ", 30, 130, 65, 20) ;, $SS_RIGHT)" (from the autoit3wrapper gui)
      because the comment contains a parenthesis and it would break completely if there were variables as parameters..
      Is there some kind of parser around that I could use instead or maybe someone who has already done something like this?

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi, recently i created a GUI for some calculations in AutoIT.  The GUI has 2 tabs and on the first tab, it has few inputboxes where i use to click with mouse and start entering the inputs. i recently made some changes in the position of these textboxes. I made this by changing the autoit code file instead of making changes in KODA. Now i cannot click inside these textboxes with mouse. However, i can use TAB key to cycle through/enter input in these input boxes. what could have made the inputboxes not responding to mouseclicks. thanks

      Introduction
      ImGui is a popular library written by ocornut, it can make awesome user interface based on directx. It is being used by many big apps/games.  The UI is nice and flexible, easy to use because of frame-by-frame drawing. So I decided to convert the entire ImGui library to AutoIt
      At first it's just an experiment, i converted some basic draw functions of imgui, compile to a dll, then using DllCall in autoit to call the functions. I was testing to see how much FPS i can get in autoit, and i was expected a low FPS, since autoit is slow. Suprisingly, the FPS turned out to be so high, it works really fast, even when drawing 1000 buttons at the same time. Features
      More than +270 functions converted from ImGui (compiled dll). Has 90% of the capability of what you can do in C++; Usable ImGuiIO and ImGuiStyle, so you can set whatever configurations you like. Preview
          
      Usage
      #include <WinAPI.au3> #include "ImGui.au3" ; Create a window Local $hwnd = _ImGui_GUICreate("AutoIt ImGui", 1024, 768) _WinAPI_ShowWindow($hwnd) ; Set style color _ImGui_StyleColorsLight() ;~ _ImGui_StyleColorsDark() Local $f_value = 5 While 1 ; when the user click close button on the window, this will return false if Not _ImGui_PeekMsg() Then Exit ; must call _ImGui_BeginFrame() _ImGui_Begin("Another window") _ImGui_Text("Hello there..") If _ImGui_Button("click me") Then $f_value = 5 _ImGui_SliderFloat("slider", $f_value, 2, 20) If _ImGui_IsItemHovered() Then _ImGui_ToolTip("what r u doing?") _ImGui_End() ; must call _ImGui_EndFrame() Wend  
      Remark
      Most of the functions were converted automatically. I haven't tested all of them yet, if some function doesn't work for you, please tell me. Still missing some features of ImGui, please tell me if you needed any. Run \tools\imgui-au3-setup.au3 to add _ImGui functions to SciTE auto-complete. Source Code
