_FindTab UDF, an alternative

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi guys,

The GUITab UDF is very useful in many situation, but i think is "stupid" ( sorry for stupid, i don't want offend anyone :D ) to use it when the GUI is created by yourself

I need to for a tab with the specific text, if exist or not and the return the value of tab index

So i have think to create and array of tab and tab names in this way:

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

Global $AddTab = -1, $Tab, $Name_Tab

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 324, 272, 191, 133)
$hTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(8, 8, 305, 193)
$TabSheet_Defautl = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Default") ; this is the default tab, i don't want to include in the search or array
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Find Tab", 40, 224, 75, 25)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("MYNAME", 136, 224, 121, 21)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

_ADDTAB("MYNAME")
ConsoleWrite($Name_Tab[0])

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button
            ;Func here
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _ADDTAB($Name)
    If Not IsArray($Tab) Then
        Dim $Tab[1], $Name_Tab[1]
    Else
        ReDim $Tab[UBound($Tab) + 1]
        ReDim $Name_Tab[UBound($Name_Tab) + 1]
    EndIf
    $Tab[UBound($Tab) - 1] = GUICtrlCreateTabItem($Name)
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
    $Name_Tab[UBound($Name_Tab) - 1] = $Name
    $AddTab = -1
EndFunc

Now i don't know how to continue, i need to create 2d array for the name? ( one for index and one for name ) or the arrays i have created is fine.

Anyway now i need to search if tab exist and then return the index. Some advice?

Many thanks

What do you need the name or index for? The handle returned by GUICtrlCreateTabitem is what you need to switch to another tab.

I need the index ( returned by the name ) because i have inside the tab some edit ( created in the same way ) so i need to write in right edit based on the name of the tab ( so by his index )

I don't need to switch it

Firstly the UDF isn't "stupid", it's designed around Microsoft's API for manipulating tab controls. Secondly, why not create the 2d array first and then loop through check the name and then return the index. It shouldn't be too difficult considering you pretty much have the basics down.

If MyEarth uses _GUICtrlTab_SetCurSel then they will need the index value, the controlid returned by GUICtrlCreateTabItem doesn't work in this instance.

I don't have say that udf is stupid, is well coded and i'll never create something like that in my entire life.

I have say is stupid to use it when you create the control by yourself, i read everytime "if you can, use the internal autoit function" and now is my mantra lol

Anyway, is not possible to get the index using a 1d array? With a 1d array i can know a position of a text?

Like:

Var = 'name1,name2'

Name1 is 0

Name2 is 1

Sorry but i'm on a phone

MyEarth,

If, for some peculiar reason, I needed to search for my own tabs by name I would do it something like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $aTab_Name[5][2]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 480, 300)

For $i = 0 To UBound($aTab_Name) - 1
    $aTab_Name[$i][0] = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab " & $i)
    $aTab_Name[$i][1] = "Tab " & $i
Next

GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

$cInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 350, 200, 20)
$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select Tab", 10, 400, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cButton
            $sTab_Name = GUICtrlRead($cInput)
            For $i = 0 To UBound($aTab_Name) - 1
                If $sTab_Name = $aTab_Name[$i][1] Then
                    GUICtrlSetState($aTab_Name[$i][0], $GUI_SHOW)
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            Next
    EndSwitch
WEnd

He didn't tell that he wants to use _GUICtrlTab_SetCurSel. Hence I asked.

I don't use _GUICtrlTab_SetCurSel, i don't use ( in this case ) that UDF at all :D

I don't need to select nothing, this is what i have do for this little project:

1-- Check folder for .txt file

2-- If a txt named "Water" and a TabItem is called "Water" then fill the edit with text content

3-- Don't switch, don't change the focus etc but stay on Default Item ( it's the main part of the script ) and if Point 2 = True fill the edit of corresponding TabItem (based on index), i'll check manually later if i need to read that edit.

With the Malba's example of 2D arrays i can continue, but thanks to all for the effort.
