Right-Click and Hover array values?

32 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Greetings,

   The attached working code creates 2 GUI windows, the 'second' is labeled as "Map Selector" and within that I have a 2048x2048 pixel image with a bunch of hexagons.  On this large image I am creating small ("plus sign") images inside each of the hexagons using an external ".txt" file that contains the x, y coordinates that each "plus sign" is to be placed at...This all works correctly.
 

  I have it setup to allow for both 'hover' and 'right-click' of controls, it seems to work however the messagebox that I have popping up reports the incorrect number for the control that has been clicked.  I believe it may be reporting the 'order' that the control was created when what I want is the array index number associated with the control so that I can further manipulate the correct control, by inserting a contextmenu for example (ideally within the 'loop' code associated with the control array).  Any help on explaining how to do this will be much appreciated.  

NOTE:  when the code begins running you will need to wait maybe 10 seconds until the images are all drawn...there will be a progressbar to indicate when the "Map Selector" is completely drawn...Thanks again.

Hello,

  The last thread dealt with trouble positioning a control on the 'complete' (2048x2048) GUI window either by clicking or other means...here I am trying to figure why the hover and/or right-click I have coded is not returning the array index value of the clicked/hovered control...completely different and seperate issues...

Is there no way to accomplish this in a 'clean' way?  I thought about sending a 'click' to the control when it is hovered/right-clicked in order to trigger the event function in the while loop in order to identify the correct clicked control...however that seems a bit 'messy', I had hoped there may be a better way to do it?

Hi Burgs,

I had to rewrite the code in my style so that I could better read & understand what you were doing.  Please don't be insulted - we just have different styles.  Anyway, I got it functioning and demonstrated how to get the Control ID of whatever you're hovering over or right-clicking.

Using GUIGetCursorInfo() isn't always the best approach since the mouse can move and land you on a different control by the time your code reacts to it (especially with how many elements you're loading in).  You may want to consider using WM_NOTIFY instead.  (See the helpfile on _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create for a good example.)

Anyway, here's my code.  Note that I'm assuming the 3 files needed are in @ScriptDir, so you'll need to update my example accordingly.  Also note that $HOVER_TIME is the time delay in milliseconds before you execute your Hover event code.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

So, yeah, silly me.  Your original code was working fine.  When Control ID's are assigned, the ID number they get is typically the same as the order they were created in.  The first control is 1, the second is 2, and so on.  You can verify this by changing your right-click message box notification into "GUICtrlSetState($BEACON[$_RC], $GUI_HIDE)".  The control you right-clicked on is the one that's hidden, which verifies you are correctly identifying the control.

Oops - I should have tried that first.  ;)

Hi,

 

When Control ID's are assigned, the ID number they get is typically the same as the order they were created in. The first control is 1, the second is 2, and so on

Can I just clarify that a bit.

The ControlIDs are actually the index numbers to an internal AutoIt array which holds details of the actual control - that way AutoIt can use the related handle to action the correct API call. Normally the ControlIDs are in numerical succession starting at 3 (0-2 are reserved), but the internal algorithm actually looks for the first available entry in this array, so deleting previously created controls can leave "holes" which will be filled first.

A lot of people, including myself I am afraid to say, use the successive nature of ControlIDs to run loops when altering groups of controls. This is not good coding practice and you should really use an array to hold the returned values to cater for the possibility that they are not successive.

I hope that explains it clearly - please come back if not. :)

Thanks for that, Melba.  I think I've noticed before that it started at 3 and forgot about it.  And thanks for the tip about the internal array filling in any gaps.  That's good to know.

Quick question (and Burgs, sorry if I'm taking away from your learning).  I tried to toss in a WM_NOTIFY function just to make sure I could.  Doesn't work.  Code is below, and I have no idea what's broken.  I'm probably doing something really stupid.  Can anyone spot my mistake?

Interesting.  I tried replacing WM_NOTIFY with WM_COMMAND.  Left clicking works, but right-clicking doesn't.  Windows is weird...

EDIT:

Very weird.  I just tried with GUIRegisterMsg($WM_RBUTTONDOWN, "WM_RBUTTONDOWN"), and it catches right-clicks on the map, but not on the crosses.  It's very weird because the map and all the crosses are created with GUICtrlCreatePic, and also the map is disabled and the crosses are not.  Puzzled, I am.  I would stick with GUIGetCursorInfo for now.

Relevant code:

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_RBUTTONDOWN, "WM_RBUTTONDOWN")

...

Func WM_RBUTTONDOWN($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam) ; Catch notifications
    #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam

;~     Local $hWndFrom, $iCode, $tNMHDR
;~     $tNMHDR = DllStructCreate($tagNMHDR, $lParam)
;~     $hWndFrom = HWnd(DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "hWndFrom"))
;~     $iCode = DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "Code")

;~  If $hWndFrom == $MapBack And $iCode == $NM_CLICK Then
        ConsoleWrite("Hiya" & @LF)
;~  EndIf

    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG

Sorry I was away from this for a bit...thanks to all those who posted, and to you Artisan for that work and info you put in.  I ended up getting around this issue by saving the control handles in an array when the image was created, and then searching thru the array when there's a 'right-click' to match the handle in the array with that which had been clicked...seems to work fine.

Thanks for that info about the 'WM_NOTIFY' along with the reference example in the Help File...I find that potentially useful as well.  I am however now experiencing a problem whereby the 'right-click' is recognized but 'left-click' is not...using essentially identical code...yes Windows is wierd, I definitely concur.

By any chance, is your right-click code being processed before the left-click?  It's possible that it's discarding a left-click notification, if that's the case.

Hello,

  Actually no, however I do have before that an 'IsPressed' command that checks for a 'left-click'...however I wouldn't think that should cause any problems...?? 

if _IsPressed("01", $hDLL) Then
   ; Wait until key is released.
  While _IsPressed("01", $hDLL) 
  Sleep(250)
  WEnd
 ;do stuff
 EndIf  ;make sensitivity to 'left-click' within various control... 

 $_CLICK_DETAIL = GUIGetCursorInfo($MapBack)

  if $_CLICK_DETAIL[2] == 1 Then
  $aHWD = GUICtrlGetHandle($_CLICK_DETAIL[4])   
  ;do stuff
  EndIf  ;$_CLICK_DETAIL[2] is 1 (LEFT-CLICK...on $MapBack)  ;left-click doesn't seem to be working

  if $_CLICK_DETAIL[3] == 1 Then  
  $aHWD = GUICtrlGetHandle($_CLICK_DETAIL[4])    
  ;do stuff
  EndIf  ;$_CLICK_DETAIL[3] is 1 (RIGHT_CLICK...on $MapBack)  ;however right-click seems to be working?

Thanks again for your interest.  Regards.

Hello,

  No not yet, still had been experimenting...however I will give that a shot.  Thanks for the suggestion,  It would seem, using the code I had posted in my original entry...that I need to 'break out' those Case statements individually...is there a way to combine them into a single Case statement like the one that fires when a "Beacon[$i]" is activated?  Perhaps I'm not understanding the Help File description adequately.  In addition even if that method works perfectly I'd still like to know why the other method I tried was not functioning (for left-clicks anyway)?   

Thanks again.

Thanks for that info.  How do I then differentiate as to if a left-click was made or a right-click...with an "if" statement?  For example: 

Case $BEACON[0] To $BEACON[2585], $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN, $GUI_EVENT_SECONDARYDOWN

 

if $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN Then

;do stuff

EndIf

 

if $GUI_EVENT_SECONDARYDOWN Then

;do stuff

EndIf

Thanks again, I need to be sure the correct clicked control is selected...I assume then this is valid code if I embed those Case statements?

                 For $i = 1 To UBound($BEACON) - 1 
                  if $nMsg[0] = $BEACON[$i] Then

                   If $nMsg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN Then
                   ;do stuff for left click
                   EndIf
    
                   If $nMsg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_SECONDARYDOWN Then

I'm sure Burgs has spotted it by now, but there's a problem with the posted code.  The stuff for left-click and right-click will never happen.  The code requires $nMsg[0] to be one of the beacons.  That's fine, but in order to execute an If block, it checks to see if that same $nMsg[0] is equal to something else.  Which it won't be.

Hello...yes that is correct it is non functional because of the beacons...so that leads me back to a frustrating question...how do I code the routine to be able to distinguish if a 'clicked' control (a beacon for example) has been either 'left-clicked' OR 'right-clicked'...?  The way I'm doing it with the Case statements would seem to not be possible because the $nMsg[0] returns the Control ID...and cannot ever return "1" for 'primarydown' or whatever...??
