GUI variables out of whack. Could use some help debugging

8 posts in this topic

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <GuiScrollBars.au3>
#include <GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3>
#include <ScrollBarConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)



$Files = _FileListToArray (@ScriptDir & "\thumbnails", "*", 1); list all files to array in this dir
;_ArrayDisplay ($Files); display for debugging
$hWnd = GUICreate("My Pics", 800,700); create a GUI
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Close"); if gui Closes




Global $pic[150], $start = 20, $z = 20; variable to set position of thumbnails
Global $Button[150]; buttons
For $i = 1 to $Files[0]; for the number of files in the dir
$pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\thumbnails\" & $Files[$i], $start, $z, 134, 193); send pics to GUI
$Button[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Download " & $i, $start + 40, $z + 200); send download buttons
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button[$i], "Download"); if download is clicked
$start = $start + 150; add 150  to position
If $start > 700 Then; if position is greater than 700
$Z = $z + 275; add to this position to start new row
$start = 10; start horizontal position back at 10 for new row
EndIf
Next

_GUIScrollbars_Generate($hWnd, 1000, $z); create scroll bars using Z, the largest vertical position
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW); show GUI
_ArrayDisplay ($Button); show array of buttons for debugging




   While 1
     WEnd


Func Download()
    MsgBox (0, "test", " You Clicked " )
    EndFunc

Func Close()
    Exit
    EndFunc

In this scenario, I have 20 files in the dir, which I will attach here.  I can loop through 1-20 just fine it seems, even creating download buttons 1-20.  However, when I use the $i variable to assign names to the buttons and pictues, they only number every other one.  The pics go 1-3-5-7 and the buttons go 2-4-6-8.  Im sure there is a simple explaination why, but im not seeing it.  In the end, they all need to relate somehow.  So if I click download button 1, it downloads movie 1 and so on.  For now, I am content using message boxes for demonstration.

Hi,

The numbers stored in the Button and pic arrays are control IDs and they are internally generated.

It begins from 3 and is incremented each time you create a control.

well that explains one piece of the puzzle.  But one thing I do not Understand is....

If I have a For loop.

 For $X= 1 to 5

$Button[$x] = Createbutton

next

What I am trying to accomplish is Button1, Button2, Button3, Button4, Button5.  So I tried $Button & $x = Createbutton, and I get an error.  Is this possible to accomplish?  Would I be better off, since I am trying to make all of these controls to relate, to read all of the data to one array?

wisem2540,

Your loop should work - you are using the loop variable as the index to the array. So your array will look like this:

Index  Content

0      Unused
1      ControlID of Button1 (= 2)
2      ControlID of Button2 (= 4)
3      ControlID of Button3 (= 6)
4      ControlID of Button4 (= 8)
5      ControlID of Button5 (= 10)
etc....
To find out which button you pressed, I would do something like this (look for the <<<<<<<<< lines):

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $pic[150], $start = 20, $z = 20; variable to set position of thumbnails
Global $Button[150]; buttons

;$Files = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir & "\thumbnails", "*", 1); list all files to array in this dir
;_ArrayDisplay ($Files); display for debugging
$hWnd = GUICreate("My Pics", 800, 700); create a GUI
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Close"); if gui Closes

For $i = 1 To 100 ; Used as an example       $Files[0]; for the number of files in the dir
    ;$pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\thumbnails\" & $Files[$i], $start, $z, 134, 193); send pics to GUI
    $pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", $start, $z, 134, 193); use labels as I do not have images <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFCCFF) ; And colour them so they are visible <<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    $Button[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Download " & $i, $start + 40, $z + 200); send download buttons
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button[$i], "Download"); if download is clicked
    $start = $start + 150; add 150  to position
    If $start > 700 Then; if position is greater than 700
        $z = $z + 275; add to this position to start new row
        $start = 10; start horizontal position back at 10 for new row
    EndIf
Next

_GUIScrollbars_Generate($hWnd, 1000, $z); create scroll bars using Z, the largest vertical position
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW); show GUI
_ArrayDisplay($Button); show array of buttons for debugging

While 1
    Sleep(10) ; Important to have a Sleep here or you risk frying the CPU <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
WEnd

Func Download() ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    ; Which button was pressed?
    $iButtonID = @GUI_CtrlId
    ; Now find it in the array
    $iIndex = _ArraySearch($Button, $iButtonID)
    If $iIndex <> -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, "test", " You Clicked " & $iIndex)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>Download

Func Close()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Close
And that same index will correspond to the images in their array - so it will be easy to get the path. ;)

Does all that make sense?  Please ask if not. :)

Melba,

yes it makes sense.  I added a MsgBox(0, "test", " You Clicked " & $Files [$iIndex])

this way I can see the filename as well.  I assune this is a safe practice?

thanks for your help

wisem2540,

 

I assune this is a safe practice?

Would I have suggested it if it were not? :huh:

I was referring to my assuming that the index number would always also match up to the files array, but it seems to work.  Thanks again

wisem2540,

As lomg as you create the images and the buttons as you are now (both in the same loop) the index will match in both arrays. :)
