Changing Window's on Button Click.

13 posts in this topic

I am trying to get my gui to change the content displayed with a button click. I guess it could be described as changing the content of a category. I made a very basic illustration. Lol

Untitled.png

What I am basically trying to do, is that when a button is clicked in Window 1, Window 2 changes to whatever content I set to show. If button 2 is clicked, then it changes to other content. Kind of like the iFrame in HTML.

ReconX,

My GUIExtender UDF (look for the link in my sig) sounds like just what you need. :)

I have looked at tutorials and what not to install custom UDF's, but I never really understood them. Do I add the .au3 to the AutoIt3>Includes folder? And then add "include "file.au3""?

ReconX,

I suggest you read the Adding UDFs to AutoIt and SciTE tutorial in the Wiki carefully and then, once you have done what it suggests in the first couple of paragraphs, download the UDF from the thread to which I linked, add it to your personal include folder, and add #include <GUIExtender.au3> to the top of your file. :)

If you still have doubts, ask again and we will go through it step by step. ;)

Thank's M23. I am looking at your "GUIExtender_Example_Object_Tab" file. It does look like what I am looking for, although, I would like to open up a script instead of the web page. How would I edit this script to do so?

Global $oIE_1 = _IECreateEmbedded()
Global $hIE_1 = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE_1, 10, 50, 730, 350)
_IENavigate ($oIE_1, "http://www.autoitscript.com")
_GUIExtender_Obj_Data($hIE_1, $oIE_1) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< New function

ReconX,

I think you have misunderstood the function of the UDF. You create a GUI which already holds all of the controls you need in the different sections and then just display the section(s) you need when required. No need to "open up a script" - everything is already in the original script. ;)

I think I am getting the hang of it. I just want to make sure if this seems like a legit format so I don't run into problems down the road.

    $aLabel[$i] = GUICtrlCreateLabel($aText[$i], 0, 0 + (75 * $i), 450, 70, BitOR($SS_CenterImage, $SS_Center))

WEnd

If I wanted to set a default one to load up when the program starts, I would just copy the first label content and add it to the beginning of the script, right?

Thank you for your help Melba23, you have really taught me a lot.

Hello, I am creating this GUI for myself, and I have been using Melba23's GUIExtender.au3. Everytime I click a button, the GUI that is scripted to that button appears, but if I click the next button, that script pops up over the first script and it stays. I guess what I am trying to ask, is there a way to clear the original buttons content before displaying another button? The code is listed below for reference. The first two buttons work, "Virus Removal Software" and "Optimizations". Thanks! 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

Global $iLastLabel = 0
Global $aText[6] = ["Virus Removal Tools", "Optimizations", "Third label", "Fourth label", "Fifth label", "Sixth label"]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 750, 444)
$hPic = GUICtrlCreatePic(@DesktopDir & "\GUI BG.jpg", 0, 0, 750, 444)
GUICtrlSetState($hPic, $GUI_DISABLE)


_GUIExtender_Init($hGUI)

For $i = 0 To 5
    $aLabel[$i] = GUICtrlCreateLabel($aText[$i], 1, 88 + (50 * $i), 203, 40, BitOR($SS_CenterImage, $SS_Center))

ReconX,

 

I think I am getting the hang of it.

Not at all I am afraid - as that does not look even close to the format of the UDF examples how do you expect it to work? :(

As I stated above, you create the whole GUI initially and then extend/retract sections as the script progresses. You are creating the additional sections within your While...WEnd loop - which will not work. Let me play with the code for a bit and see if I can come up with something for you. :)

Edit: And I have merged your other thread with this one - let us stick to just the one at a time. ;)

Sorry I have been MIA, lmao. It is close, although I do not want half the screen as a different window. I do want the window that changes upon clicking a button to be resizeable.

Thanks in advanced. :)

ReconX,

 

I do not want half the screen as a different window

The adjust the size of the various sections to give you the width you require, although the height is always fixed. I just made all of the sections 370 pixels wide as an example, you can set any width you wish for each section - but you will have to recalculate all the start points to match. :)

 

I do want the window that changes upon clicking a button to be resizeable

Alas this is not possible with my UDF - the section sizes are fixed on GUI creation. :(

It sounds like you need some code which produces separate child GUIs when the buttons are clicked - these can then be dynamically resized as required. ;)
