Close Secondary GUI while not closing script issue

Recommended Posts


I have a script that writes some configs for work, those configs are presented in a secondary gui window that pops up for the user, they click "copy to clipboard" and hit exit. The problem is that when they close the secondary window, the script exits, and doesn't return back to the first gui with cleared out input boxes, as if it was just run for the first time again.

below is the code for the function that creates the secondary input box.

Func _NoMoreTrafficAddProjects()
    $FinalTrafficAddConfig = ("Final Traffic Add Config.txt")
    $EmailForm = GUICreate("Traffic Add MOP", 831, 518, 188, 222)
    $CoxLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Traffic Add MOP ", 25, 22, 780, 41)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
    $EmailEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 32, 72, 761, 401, BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL))
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "")
    $CopyButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Copy To Clipboard", 680, 480, 99, 25)
    Local $test = FileRead("Final Traffic Add Config.txt")
    FileDelete("Final Traffic Add Config.txt")
    GUICtrlSetData($EmailEdit, ClipGet())
    GUICtrlSetState($EmailEdit, $GUI_SHOW)
    WinWaitClose("Traffic Add MOP")
EndFunc   ;==>_NoMoreTrafficAddProjects

I also noticed that once I took out a bsgbox that asked a question at the end of the function, that the scripts starts the original function that called this one all by its self and i can't  figure out why.

Just trying to be able to close a gui window, and bring up the first window with cleared out input boxes.

Im guessing you have a
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


In that case it checks if someone clicks in the "x" och sen execute that code,. In this case the "exit". So you could just put a if statement in there that checks what GUI is active. If GUI 2 is active, just close it and enable GUI 1 istead. And if GUI 1 is active, then exit.
