is there a better way than CASE select for Combo selection?

14 posts in this topic

so my script was made to load drivers based on a selection from a combo box. i've created a VERY robust system to load drivers when imaging with wds or ghost using a winPE wim. WDS does not work correctly with injected drivers. so comes into play my script/program that loads from a winPE wim after wds loads. anyone knows WDS is pretty powerful but it does not always have proper drivers once the winPE loads. so my program loads drivers into winPE based on the model / device. so if we get a new model of laptop or desktop and we want to save up that image to wds we find 32bit drivers and we load them into my program.

wds then in turn loads my winPE with my program set to autolaunch and presenting all these options. if winPE contained a generic driver then all is good. if not then we go through my list and usually one of the drivers does work but in case it doesn't we add to my list.

that's just the pre-amble incase anyone asks what i'm doing.

reminder that this has worked flawlessly for the better part of a year. but now with more devices it's getting cumbersome to manually edit my code, then compile, then mount edit and recompile the winPE wim and inject my autoit program into it.

takes a maximum of 5 minutes but when you're constantly testing it gets VERY bad.

 

here's a snippet of the array for the combobox.

Local $aList[300][2] = [["___________", "___________"], _
        ["ASUS", "ASUS"], _
        ["HP Probook 4430s", "HP Probook 4430s"], _
        ["Lenovo S10-3", "Lenovo S10-3"], _
        ["Lenovo x200/x230", "Lenovo x200/x230"], _

so this populates a combo box that lists these entries.

i use a case select to determine which box was selected. very manual editing when i need to add another device.

Func selection()

    $sSel = GUICtrlRead($cb_platform)
    $iIndex = _ArraySearch($aList, $sSel)
    Select
        Case $iIndex = 1 ;~ ASUS
            $driver = (@scriptdir & "\drivers\hp32\Netrtl32.inf")
            $nothing = $option

        Case $iIndex = 2 ;~ HP Probook 4430s
            $driver = (@scriptdir & "\drivers\hp4430\hp86win7.inf")
            $nothing = $option

        Case $iIndex = 3 ;~ Lenovo S10-3
            $driver = (@scriptdir & "\drivers\lenovos103\Netrtl32.inf")
            $nothing = $option

EndFunc

this is the part of the script which i'm trying to revamp. right now my script works very awesome for what we're doing. however i want it more streamlined.

as you can see once a combobox selection is selected, then it goes to that CASE and populates those variables then it kicks down to a function that i have that continues either ghost or wds depending on a selected radio box.

this is what i have now for the array for the combobox.

$drivers_folder=_FileListToArray(@scriptdir & "\drivers\","*",2)
$cb_platform = GUICtrlCreateCombo("",10,40,600,120,-1,-1)

For $i=1 To Ubound($drivers_folder)-1
    GUICtrlSetData($cb_platform,$drivers_folder[$i])
Next

this populates the combox based on the folder i have with each individual device. instead of creating a long winded array.

the problem i have now is i don't know how to make it load the driver within that folder without a case select.

i was thinking maybe something that got the name of the folder selected, then appended a "*.inf" at the end to load. but i'm totally in the dark of how to do this.

if you'd like me to post all my code to help, please let me know.

Hi,

What about this kind of array?

Local $aList[300][3] = _
        ["ASUS", "ASUS", "hp32\Netrtl32.inf"], _
        ["HP Probook 4430s", "HP Probook 4430s", "hp4430\hp86win7.inf"], _
        ["Lenovo S10-3", "Lenovo S10-3", "lenovos103\Netrtl32.inf"]]

...
$driver = @ScriptDir & "\drivers\" & $aList[$iIndex][2]
Edit: Added indents.

Br, FireFox.

well the thing is i don't want to use that kind of array. manual editing. the way i want to do it is the new way where it pulls the directory listing. so to add a new driver to my program all i need to do is drop the new device folder into the drivers folder. then when the program is launched the new folder is there in the combobox.

each driver folder is independent and containts only one .inf for that device. so using a *.inf wildcard to load it wouldn't hurt anything.

If you don't want to have an array, these informations have to be stored somewhere. Maybe in an ini in each driver's folder or in the inf files.

How about:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <array.au3>
$sDir = @scriptdir & "\driver"

$aFolders = _FileListToArray($sDir,"*",2)
_ArrayDelete($aFolders,0)
$string = _ArrayToString($aFolders)
Local $msg
GUICreate("My GUI combo") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10) ; create first item
GUICtrlSetData(-1,  $string) ; add other item snd set a new default

GUISetState()

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    If $msg = $combo Then
        $Folder = GUICtrlRead($combo)
        $sINFFolder = $sDir & "\" & $Folder
        $aTemp = _FileListToArray( $sINFFolder, "*.inf",1)
        If UBound($aTemp)=2 Then
            ; Get the driver
            ConsoleWrite("your driver=[" & $sINFFolder & "\" & $aTemp[1] & "]" & @CRLF)
        Else
            ConsoleWrite("no driver, or multiple drivers, in=[" & $sINFFolder & "\" & "]" & @CRLF)
        EndIf
        $aTemp = ""
    EndIf

    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd

that would be fine too since it would require editing only one external file instead of adding everything and recompiling. this would also keep everything nice and in alphabetical order.

how would i go about doing that? i've never done a split or loaded from an inf file.

Take a look at the Ini* functions, it's really simple :)

i got it to read using this little code.

$cbox = IniReadSection("device.ini","Config")

For $i = 1 To $cbox[0][0]
        GUICtrlSetData($cb_platform,$cbox[$i][1])
    Next
EndIf

this populates the combobox beautifully. now i'm stuck on the case part. i can do another IniReadSection into another array but how would that work to call my functions? or rather how would that work at all. i'm stumped.

You can populate an array according to your ini file :

[drivers]
name1=ASUS
displayname1=ASUS
path1=hp32\Netrtl32.inf

name2=HP Probook 4430s
displayname2=HP Probook 4430s
path2=hp4430\hp86win7.inf
There is for sure a better structure way for the ini, but the idea is here.

If you had a section ([section]) for each driver folder, then you could key off the combobox selection to drive the INI reading as well.

that displays the name and the path in the 'path' thing.

what i was thinking of was something like this.

[device]

name1=ASUS
name2=HP Probook 4430s

[drivers]

path1=(@scriptdir & "AsusNetrtl32.inf")

path2=(@scriptdir & "hp4430hp86win7.inf)

so when i select ASUS i want it to also select path1 and if i select HP i want it to select path2 etc.

then put that as a variable in

            $driver = WHATEVER WAS SELECTED
            $nothing = $option

im totally stumped on this second part.

less logic if it looked like this...loop through IniReadSectionNames:

[Case1]

name=ASUS
path=(@scriptdir & "AsusNetrtl32.inf")

 

[Case2]

name=HP Probook 4430s

path=(@scriptdir & "hp4430hp86win7.inf)

that's way above my head : . i am making progress though. i'm using an ini formatted as

[devices]
ASUS=\\asus.inf
HP=\\hp.inf

0 is the name and 1 is the path, after a selection is made i want "1" to be set into a variable. that is the last problem i'm having. i think i've been looking at the code too long.

 

here's the code that population of combo box.

$cbox = IniReadSection("device.ini","devices")

If @error Then
    MsgBox(4096, "", "Error occurred, probably no INI file.")
Else
For $i = 1 To $cbox[0][0]
        GUICtrlSetData($cb_platform,$cbox[$i][0])
    Next
End

and here's the function.

Func selection()

    $sSel = GUICtrlRead($cb_platform)
    $iIndex = _ArraySearch($cbox, $ssel)
    

            $driver = (@scriptdir & $iIndex)
            MsgBox(1, "",$driver)
        ;    $nothing = $option

EndFunc

using  this function all i get it does is display the "case" of the select item so for install it shows c:asuscase when the first option is selected and c:hpcase1 when the second is selected.

i know i'm close i'm just looking at it to hard i think.

      Hello,
       
      I have a script which uses a GUI with two buttons. It gets shown and hidden., and pressing the buttons (including their hotkeys) highlights the button, making you able to press enter the next time.
      However, I don't want that.
       
      I've tried using WinActivate() to make enter do things on another program, but the enter is still tied to the AutoIT GUI (which still has the button highlighted).
       
      Here's the important part of my code:
      $MY_GUI = GUICreate("Check.exe", 400, 300, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 200), -500) WinSetOnTop($MY_GUI, "", 1) ;Keeps the window on the top. $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pass (Ctrl+P)", 40, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fail (Ctrl+F)", 240, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $GUIText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 10, 360, 230) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 13, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUICtrlSetData($GUIText, Execute($stepMessage[$step])) $showGUI = "True" GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While($showGUI = "True") $buttonPressed = GUIGetMsg() Switch $buttonPressed Case $Button1 ;Pass $pass = "True" $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) Case $Button2 ;Fail $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) While($message = "") $message = InputBox("Check.exe", "Please enter the reason the step failed." & @CRLF, "", "", 300, 200, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 150), -400) WEnd Return $message EndSwitch WEnd Local $pass = "False" ;Whether "Pass" or "Fail" was pressed. Local $failLog = xxxfunc($pass) ;Returns a message to log if the step failed. ##THIS CALLS THE CODE SNIPPET ABOVE## FileWrite($file, _Now() & ": Step " & $step & getStatus($pass) & "and took " & Ceiling(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000) & " seconds." & @CRLF) If($failLog <> "") Then FileWrite($file, "Logged comment: " & $failLog & @CRLF) EndIf WinActivate("[TITLE:ProgramName]") ;Hotkeys: HotKeySet("^{p}", "pressPass") HotKeySet("^{f}", "pressFail") Func pressPass() $buttonPressed = $Button1 EndFunc Func pressFail() $buttonPressed = $Button2 EndFunc  
      The GUI's button/hotkey pressing works correctly.
      The same WinActivate code works in another script of mine.
      Together, WinActivate is not take "Active" away from the GUI's last-pressed button. How do I fix this?
       
      Thank you in advance.

      Dear AutoIT Community.
      I am currently working on a program that will display lots of images in a scroll down GUI.
      I create the GUI based on the number of images, which works fine.
      But all images I place using GuiCtrlCreatePic above a threshold of around 32000 pixels (cant say exactly) are placed at negative locations and finally will reach 0 again
      and will then populate on top of the images placed there before.
      For $i = 1 To $Images[0] ; Get picture dimensions $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ImgRep & $Images[$i]) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) ; Resize & place images in GUI $Pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic($ImgRep & $Images[$i], $Spacer, Round($yPos, 0), $MaxImgWidth, $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX)) $yPos = $yPos + $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX) + $Spacer $log = $log & "|" & $yPos $currentlut = $Images[1] Next I have found a limit at 32767 pixels for some GUI elements when googling around.
      Can someone tell me how to circumvent that?
      thanks!
      cheers

      Hello Guys this is my gui and i need the numeric value typed in the highlighted  inputbox. if this value is greater than 1 i need to perform some operations
      \
       
      Here is the summary about that field which i got from wininfo tool

      i tried writing the code as shown below.. but the msgbox is popping up empty value..when the same code is pasted under some button action i am able to access the value present in the field..but when placed alone as written in the attached script i am unable to fetch it...
