enhanced MsgBox

3 posts in this topic

I wrote Menu.au3 some time ago - this included _menu()

_menu() allowed users to include simple menus in their scripts.

eg

#include <menu.au3>
$x = _menu(1,"choose a colour","red","blue","green")
MsgBox(0,"","You chose - " & $x[1])

I have now added _msgbox()

The idea here is that sometimes you want to offer the user more options than the standard

MsgBox will allow - different / longer text on each of the buttons, 4 buttons rather than 3.

eg

#include <menu.au3>
$x  =  _MsgBox("please choose","Carry on deleting these files?","Yes", "No","More options please")
MsgBox(0,"","You clicked - " & $x)

To see examples of what can be done put menu.au3 into your #includes folder and then run Menu_UDF_test.au3

I came across a situation where I couldn't write out the _menu statement because the menu items themselves were the outputs of functions that may or may not be called.....!!!!! - so I needed to add the functionality of being able to pass all the menu items in the form of 1 argument.

So the following now works

#include <menu.au3>

$r = "red"

$b = "blue"

$g = "green"

$all = $r & "," & $b & "," & $g

$x = _menu (1, "choose a colour", "red", "blue", "green")

$x = _menu (1, "choose a colour", $r, $b ,$g)

$x = _menu (1, "choose a colour", $all)

MsgBox(0, "", $x[1])

To see examples of what can be done put menu.au3 into your #includes folder and then run Menu_UDF_test.au3Menu_UDF_test.au3menu.au3
