Creating a ComboBox with values for schtasks /ST

Recommended Posts

mdwerne

So I apologize in advance for the horrible mess you see below. While there may be many issues with my code, I only need help with one part. This GUI is an interface for customers to install software pushed via SCCM. While I have Continue and Abort buttons working just fine, I'm trying to implement a scheduler that will allow the customer to defer the install for later in the day up until 11:30pm.

I'd like to have the combobox display the current time (12 hour format) and then all hours (both top and bottom of the hour) until 11:30pm. So if they check the "Defer" box, select a time from the dropdown (such as 8:30pm) and click "Go"...the time chosen will be sent to my 'unfinished' Scheduler function which will then create a task to be executed at the specified time. I hope that all makes some sense.

So again, the only thing I would like some help with is how to correctly create the combobox with the possible values based on the current local time. I should be able to figure out the rest.

Thanks for any suggestions,

-Mike

Anyone have any suggestions on this, I've been poking at this for a couple days and not really making any progress.

If the mess above is too confusing, I can simplify and restate.

Thanks for taking a look,

Okay...I was left to my own devices long enough and actually came up with something, not pretty, but it seems to work.

(?) My question now is, where is the "0" coming from at the end of my ComboBox, and do I remove the "0". (?)

#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

Global $CurrentTime, $i, $AMPM

If @HOUR > 12 Then
    $AMPM = "PM"
ElseIf @HOUR = 0 Then
    $AMPM = "AM"
Else
    $AMPM = "AM"
EndIf

GUICreate("ComboTest", 200, 40)
Global $hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("New install time:", 10, 10, 180, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, GetTimes())
GUISetState()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd

Func GetTimes()
    Local $CurrentHour = StringTrimRight(_NowTime(), 9)
    For $i = $CurrentHour To 11 Step +1
        _GUICtrlComboBox_BeginUpdate($hCombo)
        _GUICtrlComboBox_InsertString($hCombo, $i & ":00 " & $AMPM, -1)
        _GUICtrlComboBox_InsertString($hCombo, $i & ":30 " & $AMPM, -1)
        _GUICtrlComboBox_EndUpdate($hCombo)
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>GetTimes

Thanks for your time,

GetTimes() returns 0 so do not use GUICtrlSetData to add the return value of 0 to the combo.

Updated code

#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

Global $CurrentTime, $i, $AMPM

If @HOUR > 12 Then
    $AMPM = "PM"
ElseIf @HOUR = 0 Then
    $AMPM = "AM"
Else
    $AMPM = "AM"
EndIf

GUICreate("ComboTest", 200, 40)
Global $hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("New install time:", 10, 10, 180, 25)
; function returns value of 0
GetTimes()
GUISetState()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd

Func GetTimes()
    Local $CurrentHour = StringTrimRight(_NowTime(), 9)
    _GUICtrlComboBox_BeginUpdate($hCombo)
    For $i = $CurrentHour To 11
        _GUICtrlComboBox_InsertString($hCombo, $i & ":00 " & $AMPM, -1)
        _GUICtrlComboBox_InsertString($hCombo, $i & ":30 " & $AMPM, -1)
    Next
    _GUICtrlComboBox_EndUpdate($hCombo)
EndFunc   ;==>GetTimes

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.
