GUIGtrlSetTip on $GUI_Disable Checkbox

Recommended Posts

strongy

Hi Guys,

Is it possible to have a GUI Tip show on Disabled labels / check boxes?  Ideally to give a reason for the label being disabled.

I'm guessing this may not be possible but thought I would ask. Thanks in advance.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $msg, $checkbox

    GUICreate("GUI Example")

    $checkbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox", 10, 20)
    GUICtrlSetState($checkbox,$GUI_DISABLE) ; if State is Enabled the tooltip shows
    GUICtrlSetTip($checkbox, "Reason why checkbox is disabled ?")

    GUISetState()

    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
EndFunc

strongy,

I would use a label of the same size to act as a placeholder for the ToolTip when the Checkbox is disabled:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $msg, $cCheck

    GUICreate("GUI Example")

    $cLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 20, 100, 20)
    $cCheck = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox", 10, 20, 100, 20)
    GUICtrlSetState($cCheck,$GUI_DISABLE)
    GUICtrlSetTip($cLabel, "Reason why checkbox is disabled")
    GUICtrlSetTip($cCheck, "Checkbox is enabled")

    $cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enable", 10, 100, 80, 30)

    GUISetState()

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $cButton
                Switch GUICtrlRead($cButton)
                    Case "Enable"
                        GUICtrlSetState($cCheck,$GUI_ENABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetState($cLabel, $GUI_DISABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetData($cButton, "Disable")
                    Case Else
                        GUICtrlSetState($cCheck,$GUI_DISABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetState($cLabel, $GUI_ENABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetData($cButton, "Enable")
                EndSwitch
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc
All clear? :)

Thanks Melba..

Yes that works perfectly for me..  For some reason I had it in my mind that I would be unable to overlap like this.

Thanks very much for the Welcome.

strongy,

You can always overlap controls, but you need to make sure that only one is enabled at any one time. if not, then AutoIt does not know which of the controls to action and so does nothing. If you ever find that controls are not working, the first thing to check is that there is not an overlapping label. ;)
