setting a debug mode with runwait

Recommended Posts

Hey,

So for this question ive knocked together the following quick script which has a debug checkbox at the bottom right, if its turned on then its sets the two debug variables so they are ' /k ' to keep the command window open at end of the command being ran, and 'SW_SHOW' to show the command box, the first debug variable is fine, i seem to be having trouble with it calling @SW_SHOW or @SW_HIDE from a variable

Anyone got any ideas?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$Main = GUICreate("Command Debug",600,480,-1,-1,-1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Global $button_notepad = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open Notepad", 484, 74, 89, 20)
Global $checkbox_debug = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Debug Mode", 495, 400)
Global $var_debugmode = " /c "
Global $var_debugmode2 = "@SW_SHOW"

While (1)
        $nMsg=GUIGetMsg()
        switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    Case $button_notepad
        Button()
    Case $checkbox_debug 
        If _IsChecked($checkbox_debug) Then ;Turn on debug mode
            $var_debugmode = " /k "
            $var_debugmode2 = "@SW_HIDE"
            MsgBox(0, "TEST ANSWER", "You have just turned debug mode on, all cmd windows will be shown and stay open")
        Else ;Turn off debug mode
            $var_debugmode = " /c "
            $var_debugmode2 = "@SW_SHOW"
            MsgBox(0, "TEST ANSWER", "You have just turned debug mode off, all cmd windows will be hidden")
        EndIf
    EndSwitch        
Wend

Func Button()
$cmd_notepad = RunWait(@ComSpec & $var_debugmode & 'notepad.exe', "", $var_debugmode2)
EndFunc ;==>Button

Func _IsChecked($iControlID)
    Return BitAND(GUICtrlRead($iControlID), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
EndFunc   ;==>_IsChecked

;RunWait Cmd comspec Information:
; /k keeps it there on new line
; /c closes after complete
; @SW_SHOW shows the command window
; @SW_HIDE hides the command window

Try removing the quotes from around the macros @SW_HIDE and @SW_SHOW and see if that works.

So I now have:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$Main = GUICreate("Command Debug",600,480,-1,-1,-1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Global $button_notepad = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open Notepad", 484, 74, 89, 20)
Global $checkbox_debug = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Debug Mode", 495, 400)
Global $var_debugmode = " /c "
Global $var_debugmode2 = @SW_HIDE

While (1)
        $nMsg=GUIGetMsg()
            switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $button_notepad
            Button()
        Case $checkbox_debug 
            If _IsChecked($checkbox_debug) Then ;Turn on debug mode
                $var_debugmode = " /k "
                $var_debugmode2 = @SW_HIDE
                MsgBox(0, "TEST ANSWER", "You have just turned debug mode on, all cmd windows will be shown and stay open")
                Else ;Turn off debug mode
                $var_debugmode = " /c "
                $var_debugmode2 = @SW_SHOW
                MsgBox(0, "TEST ANSWER", "You have just turned debug mode off, all cmd windows will be hidden")
            EndIf
        EndSwitch        
Wend

Func Button()
$cmd_notepad = RunWait(@ComSpec & $var_debugmode & 'notepad.exe', "", $var_debugmode2)
EndFunc ;==>Button

Func _IsChecked($iControlID)
    Return BitAND(GUICtrlRead($iControlID), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
EndFunc   ;==>_IsChecked

;RunWait Cmd comspec Information:
; /k keeps it there on new line
; /c closes after complete
; @SW_SHOW shows the command window
; @SW_HIDE hides the command window

but that still doesnt seem to work.

When I turn debug on, and click the button, notepad opens, but i then cant close the command debug program, its stuck cause of this variable I think

oh I was being stupid and putting the wrong /c or /k on the wrong varible changes.

This works: 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$Main = GUICreate("Command Debug",600,480,-1,-1,-1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Global $button_notepad = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open Notepad", 484, 74, 89, 20)
Global $checkbox_debug = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Debug Mode", 495, 400)
Global $var_debugmode = " /c "
Global $var_debugmode2 = @SW_HIDE

While (1)
        $nMsg=GUIGetMsg()
            switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $button_notepad
            Button()
        Case $checkbox_debug 
            If _IsChecked($checkbox_debug) Then ;Turn on debug mode
                $var_debugmode = " /k "
                $var_debugmode2 = @SW_SHOW
                MsgBox(0, "TEST ANSWER", "You have just turned debug mode on, all cmd windows will be shown and stay open")
                Else ;Turn off debug mode
                $var_debugmode = " /c "
                $var_debugmode2 = @SW_HIDE
                MsgBox(0, "TEST ANSWER", "You have just turned debug mode off, all cmd windows will be hidden")
            EndIf
        EndSwitch        
Wend

Func Button()
$cmd_notepad = RunWait(@ComSpec & $var_debugmode & 'notepad.exe', "", $var_debugmode2)
EndFunc ;==>Button

Func _IsChecked($iControlID)
    Return BitAND(GUICtrlRead($iControlID), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
EndFunc   ;==>_IsChecked

;RunWait Cmd comspec Information:
; /k keeps it there on new line
; /c closes after complete
; @SW_SHOW shows the command window
; @SW_HIDE hides the command window
