Creating a ComboBox with values for schtasks /ST

Recommended Posts

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

Edit:...Oops, if the moderator would like to move this post to the "Graphical User Interface (GUI) Help and Support", I wasn't thinking when I hit submit...sorry.

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,

-Mike

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

      Hello everybody (and sorry for my bad english)

      I try to get the position of a contextmenu (GUICtrlCreateContextMenu) on a TreeView, with ControlGetPos, but i can't.
      Someone can help me ? Thank you :)

      PS: I need the position to select item wtih rightclick before read the text of the item, because rightclick don't select item (only leftclick).

      Hello eveyone,
      I installed the latest version of Autoit (x86 - for greater compatibility) and SciTE.
      Every time I want to generate the GUI code designed in Koda, the program freezes (only Koda, not SciTE).
      Have you ever had this problem? Do you know how to fix it?
      Thanks!

      Hello Forum, 
      I have one special Combo-box [with BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE) ] and if I press one button I want to change the Combo-box's background color, and after I press Button B I want to change it to the basic settings and it not works.
      I wanna do this with one combo-box.
      I have already tried several methods and I tried  GUICtrlComboSetColors that I have found on this forum.
      (But this methods works perfectly with Cobo boxes that don't have BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE). 
      Here is the example code
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <ComboConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= ;$CBS_DROPDOWNLIST ;$GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 504, 249, 252, 227) $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 136, 24, 193, 25,BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE)) ; I want to change this special combo's background color if I press button 1 $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 112, 96, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button2", 264, 96, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### GUICtrlSetData($Combo1," " & "|" & "apple" & "|" & "banana" & "|" & "cherry" ," ") While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $Button1 GUICtrlSetBkColor($Combo1,0x0078D7) Case $Button2 ;Makes the original bc color GUICtrlSetBkColor($Combo1,0xFFFFFF) EndSwitch WEnd
