Simple Message Box script

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am trying to include a simple message box to prompt our users to restart their pc after IE 10 has been installed that will give them a choice of whether allow the user to either click yes to reboot now or have them click no and the PC will reboot after 8 hours or what ever time frame. I am not understanding why it will not display the Yes or No prompt. I only am having this issue after installign the latest version of autoit. Any advice autoit team? Greatly appreciated, thank you.

#NoTrayIcon
#RequireAdmin

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

MsgBox(48 ,"XXX Organization", " Attention Internet Explorer 10 has been installed. Please restart your PC when possible so your browser can be fully upgraded. If you decline now after 8 hours the PC will reboot on its own", 4, 100)

rbenner1184,

Because you are not asking it to display those buttons. You are only using flag 48 ($MB_ICONWARNING) - you need to add in $MB_YESNO (4) to get the buttons. :)

And the same was true in earlier versions, so that excuse will not work. ;)

Ok thanks I'll try that. I thought before though that the

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> was not needed though. I may be wrong though.

It's not needed because you're not using the variables, you're using their values in your snippet.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I was able to figure this out, but thanks for the idea. I will use the switch for this.

jdelaney, why are you using Int with the return from MsgBox, the function only returns integers?

      Hello,
      I'm trying to make it so that when a message box pops up that the GUI will be unresponsive until that message box has been closed. From reading through the help the closest thing I can find is the WinWaitClose function, however this doesn't work fully as desired. If user tries to click on GUI the actions are more just waiting for the message box to close, so that once it closes everything happens at once. I want it so that the GUI is completely unusable until message box is closed. 
       
      Below is test code to demonstrate the problem and help explain what I want. Any advice on this?
       
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Example() Func Example() ; Create a GUI with various controls. Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example") Local $idOK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 310, 370, 85, 25) local $but = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hello", 150,150,85,25) ; Display the GUI. GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) MsgBox( 262144,"Message","Try hitting the hello button several times,without closing this window. Now close this window and see how script wasn't restricted it just was waiting and storing the instructions") WinWaitClose("Message") While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $idOK Exit case $but MsgBox(0,"","Hello") EndSwitch WEnd ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls. GUIDelete($hGUI) EndFunc ;==>Example

      Hi all, 
      I am looking for a quick tip on why my autoit script crashes when I run a timer. Currently I have this code:
            ....(more code above this)....
                Case $button2
                            function1()
                 Case $butTimer
                            _Timer_setTimer($hGUI, 3200, "_timedout")
              ......
               Func _timedout()
                             Msgbox(0, "Timed out", "Time is up!")
                Endfunc
      When the button is pressed, my timer starts, correct? It doesnt seem to matter if I have it on button activation or not, after the time goes by for a bit, it crashes.
      Seemingly when the time is up, my script crashes. 
      Thanks for your help!
