While loop hangs in GUI

3 posts in this topic

Just trying to use a simple While loop to watch for input in a GUI window, but when I go to run it and then give the input. It seems to completely hang and I must at that point stop it manually and restart. I know I'm missing something (could be trivial), but a push would be greatly appreciated.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $F1Button, $F1Key

HotKeySet("{Esc}", "Quit")
$F1Key = HotKeySet("{F1}", "UnlockCar")

GUI()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_Event_Close
            Quit()
        Case $msg = $F1Button
            UnlockMe()
    EndSelect
WEnd

Func GUI()
    $DisclaimerHandle = GUICreate("Disclaimer", 525, 245, -1, -1, -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST) ;Creates the GUI window
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("example", 7, 15)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 7, 30)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("example", 7, 45)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel(" example", 7, 60)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 7, 75)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("example", 7, 90)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("example", 7, 105)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("example", 7, 135)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("example", 7, 165)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("if using a touchscreen press the F1 button below.", 7, 180)
    $F1Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("F1", 217, 205, 50, 30)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Shows the GUI window
EndFunc   ;==>GUI

Func UnlockMe()
    MsgBox(0, "I work", "I work")
    Quit()
EndFunc   ;==>UnlockMe

Func Quit()
    GUIDelete()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Quit

After commenting the Hotkey since that points to an invalid name, the script works fine.

When clicking on the F1 button the Msgbox() is activated fine, only it is shown behind the Main window as that has the TopMost attribute.

Knew it was something trivial.

Thanks Jos

      I've made a form in Koda where I make a list of 3 user definable elements that I want to be able to replicate with a button press so a user can add data that can be used as part of the program. 
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=D:\Carbonite Important\0 - Programing\Scite and Autoit\Koda 1.7.3.0\Forms\Mileage Estimator.kxf $Form1 = GUICreate("Save Project", 614, 1126, 298, 141) $Location = GUICtrlCreateInput("Location", 40, 112, 345, 21) $Distance = GUICtrlCreateInput("Distance", 400, 112, 89, 21) $AddLocation = GUICtrlCreateButton("AddLocation", 288, 80, 97, 25) $Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Location", 40, 88, 45, 17) $Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Distance", 400, 88, 46, 17) $HomeBase = GUICtrlCreateInput("HomeBase", 312, 32, 121, 21) $LeapYear = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("LeapYear", 464, 32, 17, 17) $Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Leap Year?", 488, 32, 59, 17) $Variance = GUICtrlCreateInput("Variance", 504, 112, 81, 21) $Label4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Variance", 504, 88, 46, 17) $Label5 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Home Base", 312, 8, 59, 17) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 144, 56, 1, 57) $Save = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save Project", 40, 16, 121, 25) $Load = GUICtrlCreateButton("Load Project", 176, 16, 121, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $Form1 Case $AddLocation EndSwitch WEnd I want to press the "add location" button and have the fields {Location, Distance and variance} create a new blank record located under the existing 3 input boxes. Since the fields can number over 30 locations in some examples I am thinking about having these items in a scrolling window. What is the best way to do this and can auto it add a variable while running by pressing a button?

      Hi,
      I made a small blunder with my code. I created the GUI under 1920x1080 resolution however, my user is configured to ONLY 1080x720 and cannot go any further than that.
      What do you guys think is the best way to correct this one? Resolution mathematics is something that came to mind however I do not have access to his PC to check  from time to time if  my estimation is correct and the resolution on my PC doesn't go down to 1080x720.
      Please help.

      Hello all ~
      I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2.  Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc.  Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully.  The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue.  The network share opening gives me issues.  Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead.  I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer.  I have also attempted to use the letter drive mapped to the network share (Z:) and receive the same result.  When I run this script on Windows 10 alone without  the VM or the ESXi I am able to open the network share without problems.  I have tried to use the net use command to designate a letter M: to the network share folder prior to running the script.  This did not work for me.  
      One additional avenue I think might work is to use the systreeview321 and _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem to step through the tree looking for the network share.  Once found,  double click on it and see if that opens the shared network folder.  I can click inside the VM with my mouse on the network share and it opens just fine.  Not sure if running up against GUI issues, or permission issues, or what?
      Thanks in advance,
      Davida Crozier

      This script is a subset of a much larger program, but it illustrates what I am dealing with.

      Hi everyone,
      GUICtrlSetState Function example ,i found $GUI_DROPACCEPTED isn't working in windows10 x64(windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64).
      if the example put to windows10 x86 or windows xp, the $GUI_DROPACCEPTED is effective,
      the AutoIt Edition is v3.3.14.2.
      any ideas? thanks you.
