Controls not keeping previous settings

6 posts in this topic

Don't see why it won't keep the settings when Options() gets called, keeps reverting to unchecked radios and slider at 100 of 255. It should be reading the INI for those values each time it's called.

Try:

        GUICtrlSetState($Radio1, $GUI_CHECKED)
    Else
        GUICtrlSetState($Radio1, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
    EndIf

Edit: A more elegant way to handle having a Tray menu and a GUI would be to have a single While loop where you listen for messages from Tray and from the GUI and handle it that way:

P.S. I fixed the issues you were having with the ini not updating and also added a label to the Transparency slider to show the selected number.

I'll be honest I am not 100% sure with HotKeys and the way you have gone about handling the way the Hot Keys work to set window transparency etc, but it seems to work, albeit somewhat choppy.

Very nice, thank you. I know the Hotkey thing is sloppy, but I didn't see another way to go about having the delay for opening the options. Think I'll turn that into a double tap instead of holding it. 

The double tap method I'm gonna use is still choppy, but also I need to work out some more issues. It doesn't seem to be saving the transparency setting properly, also it is applying the transparency setting to the Settings GUI. Pretty sure some of that if not all is coming from the way I setup the Hotkey.

I'll work it out, then post what I did when I'm done.

Ok so the transparency issue was due to a mix up in the variables, and the hotkey method I chose was with If Then statements and that just didn't work well so I went with a Switch Case.

And TADA! Thanks again, oh and if you notice the hotkey has a variable now, that's for future adjustments, going to make it so the key can be changed.

      Hi all, 

      First, I want to give a huge shout-out to the community. I'm completely self-taught, and have never had to actually ask a question before because the forum is that good at answering questions and explaining things. However, I'm kind of stumped here, and I've been stuck on this problem for almost a full day.

      I'm working on a script to populate drafts of deeds at work. I have the main GUI and  a function (ctrl($n) and read()) for adding fields to find and data to replace it with to an array for later use with _word_docfindreplace. All of that works. However, due to the way I have the forms set up, I need to create additional fields and info based on the data that's there. Specifically, if there's only one buyer, I need to add the field [Buyer1&2] and the data in $aArray_Base for [Buyer 1]. I also need to add a field [Buyer 2] and have a blank data set in the next column over in the array, and I need to do the same for the Seller. To this end, the function parties() sets boolean variables $2buyers and $2sellers accordingly. Then, I have buyers() and sellers() to populate the data. 

      The problem that I'm running into is that each function works... when ONLY the buyer 1 name field is filled, and when ONLY the seller 1 field is filled.

      So if I fill Buyer 1 Name and save it, the data is populated correctly. But when I fill Buyer 1 and Seller 1 name, only the buyer 1 data populates correctly. Worse, when I fill several fields, neither populate correctly. I have no idea why this happens. I've added messageboxes to debug throughout the entire process and can't pinpoint what's causing the issue. The entire script is below. The function(s) in question are buyers() and sellers(). Only Sellers() has messageboxes throughout.

      Can someone help walk me through what might be causing this and help me find a solution? Thanks a ton in advance, and sorry for the wall of text.

      Hi Guys,
      I've been reading this post ...
      When I came accross the examples, non of them had what I was looking for.
      I basically want to "snapshot" my GUI's multiple tabs and send them into the pdf.
      A little nudge from you guys would be great.
      Im really stuck with this one, therefore I have no code.
      Lets discuss or point me in a right direction... thanks alot
