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

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      Hi, here are few functions for the ListBox.
      I have searched the forum, but most of the functions are for listview, so i took one example code from melba23 (clear selection) and
      wrote few more functions. (Because my current project needs them).
       
      These functions work only on a Multi-selection ListBox . 
      Edit: Only 1 function does not work with single selection box.
      The functions do: Clear Selection, Delete Selected items, Invert Selection, Move selected items up and down.

      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

      Hi everyone,
      I am bit stumped as to why I am not able to set the time in the Date control
      #include <DateTimeConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() Func Example() GUICreate("My GUI get date", 200, 200, 800, 200) Local $idDate = GUICtrlCreateDate("1953/04/25", 10, 10, 185, 20, $DTS_TIMEFORMAT) ; to select a specific default format Local $sStyle = "HH:mm:ss" GUICtrlSendMsg($idDate, $DTM_SETFORMATW, 0, $sStyle) ; Set time Local $iRet = GUICtrlSetData($idDate, '13:33:37') ConsoleWrite('GUICtrlSetData returned ' & ($iRet = 1 ? 'success' : 'failure') & @CRLF) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Loop until the user exits. While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Time", GUICtrlRead($idDate)) EndFunc ;==>Example The documentation for GUICtrlSetData clearly mentions that it uses the same format as GUICtrlRead:
      But I get failure
      What gives?
      Thanks for the help in advance!

      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

      good morning
      this is the first post here in the autoit forums
      i hope that you can help me in my problem
      i have a JSON encoded
      it a map of my forums
      where i want to make a treeview that have the same type of map
      e.g
      a system (as category)
      windows (as sub category)
      software (as an child item in the windows category)
      .....
      i don't know how to do that
      so, i know that i can do that using the json functions
      but i need your help about how we can do it as the type that i told you
      by the way i need to put the sub info for each item in an array that give me the ability to manage my items
      e.g
      can post thread
      can reply
      message cound ...
      you just give me a small example and i can continue.
      am sorry if this against the rules of the forum.
      but i realy searched a lot but i couldn't
      i hope some one give me the way.
      thank you very much in advance
       
      here is the link of json forum
