GUIGetMsg and 2 GUIs

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello, 

i have a bit of a problem here, and i don`t know what i messed up. Basicly i`m trying to work with 2 GUIs, but i don`t even need to open secound gui and i keep getting message from it, $nMsg[0] = $save_settings_btn and i don`t know what is the problem, since i isolated it with 

If $nMsg[0] = $save_settings_btn Then
            If $nMsg[1] = $secondary_gui Then
                ConsoleWrite("Save button was pushed")
                ToolTip("Settings were saved", 400, 400)
            EndIf
        EndIf

here`s the whole loop function

Func LoopGUI()
    Local $nMsg
    Local $MW

    While True
        $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)

        If $nMsg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ;when windows is closed do a cleanup for GDI+
            If $nMsg[1] = $main_gui Then
                _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic)
                _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($clickable_logo)
                _GDIPlus_Shutdown()
                Exit
            Else
                GUIDelete($secondary_gui)
                GUICtrlSetState($setting_button, $GUI_ENABLE)
            EndIf
        EndIf

        If $nMsg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_RESTORE Then ;after restoring minimized windows autoit won`t show some graphics
            RefreshGDIPlus()
        EndIf

        If $nMsg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN Then ;enables clicking on logo
            InRect()
        EndIf

        If $nMsg[0] = $setting_button Then
            SettingsGUI()
            GUICtrlSetState($setting_button, $GUI_DISABLE)
        EndIf

        If $nMsg[0] = $save_settings_btn Then
            If $nMsg[1] = $secondary_gui Then
                ConsoleWrite("Save button was pushed")
                ToolTip("Settings were saved", 400, 400)
            EndIf
        EndIf

        For $i = 1 To $button[0] ;the main thing, opens VLC
            If $nMsg[0] = $button[$i] Then
                $MW = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TV Atris", "MultiWindow")
                If $MW = 0 Then
                    WinClose("VLC media player")
                    Run($VLC_path & " " & $stream_address[$i])
                    ConsoleWrite($stream_address[$i] & @CRLF)
                Else
                    Run($VLC_path & " " & $stream_address[$i])
                    ConsoleWrite($stream_address[$i] & @CRLF)
                EndIf
            EndIf
        Next

    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>LoopGUI

any help would be appreciated, 

Thank you

Thank you kindly for your help good sir, but somehow i still have a problem with this, i`ve tried to use GUISwitch as you suggested (must admit, i don`t understand it much), but still, after i open my primary gui, i keep getting message from secound gui, which isn`t even opend yet, and it really confuse me, since i don`t see how can this be happening.

Okey i found a workaround, i`m not too happy about this but it works, i`ve created a $variable = 0 and when secound GUI is created $variable is set to 1.

I found out that if i`m trying to GUIGetMsg button which has not been created yet, it will always return positive. So i`m going to use this $variable to determin when secound GUI has been build.

BUT, if anybody got better idea, please let me know! 

Thanks :)

Bester,

Have you read the Managing Multiple GUIs tutorial in the Wiki? If not I heartily recommend it. :)

Yes, i actually did, and that`s exactly what i`ve done, only i wasn`t using Swich but If, and this thing happened. That`s why i was so suprised, that i`m getting answer from the button that wasn`t even created.

Bester,

It is difficult to know for sure from the small snippets of code you have given us, but I would hazard a guess that you have declared the variable which will hold the to-be-created button ControlID but not given it a value - in this case Autoit interprets it 0. And guess what is the return value from GUIGetMsg when nothing is happening? :whistle:

When you declare the variable give it a placeholder value (I always use 9999 as I have never yet used ten thousand controls in a GUI) and then it will not fire until you actually create the button and assign the real ControlID to the variable. Remember also to reset the placeholder value if you delete the button. ;)

Thank you kindly sir, i found out that it will fire up if i didn`t created the secound gui first, that`s why i`ve done this $variable workaround, but didn`t know the exact reason, now it`s all clear to me.

Thank you again :)
