Understanding GUICtrlSetState

Recommended Posts

Omga4000

Hey all :)

I've managed to get GUICtrlSetState working - but I actually didn't understand how I did it!

(The full script is 300+ lines, so i will just post what's necessary)

This is my script have in my script:

$Make_Room = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Make Room?", 40, 64, 97, 17)

$Make_Room_Read = GUICtrlRead($Make_Room)
if $Make_Room_Read = 1 Then
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_UNCHECKED)
EndIf

So this is working perfectly, but how?!

Where exactly did I tell it to uncheck this specific checkbox?

What happens in case I more than 1 checkboxes, like this:

$Make_Room = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Make Room?", 40, 64, 97, 17)
$Beep = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Beep?", 40, 84, 97, 17)

In this case - how do I define which Check box I want to be unchecked?

They both return "1" when checked and both return "4" when unchecked.

Thank you,

Omga4000 :)

The -1 in the GUICtrlSetState function in your first example will set the last control created, which in your case happens to be that check box. It's always a good idea to use the controlID of the control to do this, so that you know which control you're referencing. In this example it would be $make_room that holds the control ID of the checkbox.

If you're going to use -1 in control related items, you should always use it as close to the control creation command as possible so that you know which one you're referencing. Using it with -1 is useful so that you don't have to create unnecessary variables just so you can reference them once right after making it.

Eureka!

My mistake was I accidently thought the controller ID is $Make_Room_Read,

however, this is the return for marked or not and not the controller ID. Stupid me!

By creating a MsgBox with $Make_Room and $Beep I was able to receive their controller ID (which was 8 and 9 respectively).

Now the full script is functioning perfectly.

Thank you for directing me BrewManNH! :)

Best Regards,

Omga4000.
