1 out of 6 buttons will not work...

4 posts in this topic

I have 6 buttons on my form.  I enable/Disable the buttons based on user input.  When the 6 button is enabled, it still will not work.  I don't think I'm capturing the button press event properly.  The other 5 buttons work correctly.  I've attached my source code, ini file, and test input file.  Please help me find out why the 6th button (Abort Button) doesn't work.

Thanks in Advance.

zamboni128,

This is usually caused by a label overlapping the button - when 2 controls overlap AutoIt does not know which to action and so ignores both. When I look at your code I see this is indeed the case - colouring the label lets you see what is happening:

$hProcessLabel4_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0%", $iSettingsAreaLeft + 530, $iProgressAreaTop + 90,100,20,$SS_LEFT)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Reduce the width of the label and the button becomes fully active - you can actually use the right edge now. ;)

If controls appear not to react the first check should always be for label overlap - it is most often the culprit. :)

That is the problem.  Thank you very much.  Is there a better way to check for the activation of the Abort button that is more instantaneous?  It seems like I have to press the button at the right processing time before it works.

zamboni128,

You have to check for the button press somehow as you pass through the loop, but you might find the methods used in the Interrupting a running function tutorial in the Wiki give a better result than using GUIGetMsg. :)
