16 Buttons - what is the best way to code?

3 posts in this topic

I have coded a GUI with 16 buttons, I am just using individual functions to call each button when pressed it calls a batch file - is there a better way of coding?

Also I am trying to code in a MSGBOX when the button is pressed it asks them if they want to proceed (YES or NO) - how can I code the if statement if they press not to not close the GUI but to let them go back to the GUI to press another button? Here is my code:

Thanks!

Func All()
    $Result = MsgBox(4, "blaj","ndejded")
    If $Result = 6 Then
    Run("Auto.bat")
Else
exit
    EndIf
EndFunc

Example:

#include <Inet.au3>
Local $PublicIP = _GetIP()
$iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(1, "IP Address", "Your IP Address is: " & $PublicIP & @CRLF & "Copy to Clipboard?")
Select
   Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 1  ;OK
         ClipPut ($PublicIP)
   Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 2  ;Cancel
EndSelect

swstrau118,

Here's one way...

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
#include <array.au3>

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n

local $gui010   =   guicreate('')
local $aSize    =   wingetclientsize($gui010)
local $lbl010   =   guictrlcreatelabel('Some meaningful text',0,20,$aSize[0],20,bitor($ss_sunken, $SS_CENTER))

local $aButtons[16], $idx = 0

for $1 = 1 to 4
    for $2 = 1 to 4
        $aButtons[$idx] = guictrlcreatebutton('#' & $idx+1,$2*55,$1*55,35,35)
        $idx += 1
    Next
next

guisetstate()

while 1
    switch guigetmsg()
        case $gui_event_close
            Exit
        case $aButtons[0] to $aButtons[ubound($aButtons)-1]
            for $1 = 0 to ubound($aButtons) - 1
                if bitand(_GUICtrlButton_GetState($aButtons[$1]),$BST_FOCUS) = $BST_FOCUS then _Button_action($1+1)
            next
    EndSwitch
WEnd

func _Button_action($button_number)
    switch msgbox($MB_OKCANCEL,'','Button Pushed = ' & $button_number & @LF)
        case 1
            ConsoleWrite('Doing something with button #' & $button_number & @LF)
            return
        case 2
            ConsoleWrite('Returning without doing anything with button #' & $button_number & @LF)
            Return
    endswitch
endfunc

      Hello,
       
      I have a script which uses a GUI with two buttons. It gets shown and hidden., and pressing the buttons (including their hotkeys) highlights the button, making you able to press enter the next time.
      However, I don't want that.
       
      I've tried using WinActivate() to make enter do things on another program, but the enter is still tied to the AutoIT GUI (which still has the button highlighted).
       
      Here's the important part of my code:
      $MY_GUI = GUICreate("Check.exe", 400, 300, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 200), -500) WinSetOnTop($MY_GUI, "", 1) ;Keeps the window on the top. $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pass (Ctrl+P)", 40, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fail (Ctrl+F)", 240, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $GUIText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 10, 360, 230) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 13, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUICtrlSetData($GUIText, Execute($stepMessage[$step])) $showGUI = "True" GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While($showGUI = "True") $buttonPressed = GUIGetMsg() Switch $buttonPressed Case $Button1 ;Pass $pass = "True" $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) Case $Button2 ;Fail $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) While($message = "") $message = InputBox("Check.exe", "Please enter the reason the step failed." & @CRLF, "", "", 300, 200, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 150), -400) WEnd Return $message EndSwitch WEnd Local $pass = "False" ;Whether "Pass" or "Fail" was pressed. Local $failLog = xxxfunc($pass) ;Returns a message to log if the step failed. ##THIS CALLS THE CODE SNIPPET ABOVE## FileWrite($file, _Now() & ": Step " & $step & getStatus($pass) & "and took " & Ceiling(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000) & " seconds." & @CRLF) If($failLog <> "") Then FileWrite($file, "Logged comment: " & $failLog & @CRLF) EndIf WinActivate("[TITLE:ProgramName]") ;Hotkeys: HotKeySet("^{p}", "pressPass") HotKeySet("^{f}", "pressFail") Func pressPass() $buttonPressed = $Button1 EndFunc Func pressFail() $buttonPressed = $Button2 EndFunc  
      The GUI's button/hotkey pressing works correctly.
      The same WinActivate code works in another script of mine.
      Together, WinActivate is not take "Active" away from the GUI's last-pressed button. How do I fix this?
       
      Thank you in advance.

      Hello,
      it's quite often, that someone asks how to change the texts of the MsgBox buttons or the InputBox buttons or how to change the position of ta MsgBox. Since years I use CBT hooks for that, but now I made a small UDF out of it for the ease of use. Of course you can build your own GUI or use already existing UDFs to do the same, but I like this way and you can hack (hook) the inbuild InputBox.
