Multiple form windows

Recommended Posts


I have a base form (called form1) and a form that on a specific event pops up another form for entering data.

Here is a quick example:

Func PopupBox()
    $PopUp = GUICreate("Select Status", 199, 71, 192, 111)
    $StatusDropdown = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 8, 40, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
    GUICtrlSetData($StatusDropdown, "Not Found|Other","")
    $Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Set the status", 8, 16, 95, 17)
    $GoButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Go", 158, 41, 35, 20)
    While 1
        $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Case $GoButton
                If GUICtrlRead($StatusDropdown) = "Not Found" Then

My problem is that the GUIDelete command doesn't actually end the functions switch so once the form is gone, the first GUI is no longer responsive. How do I exit/end the function without using "exit" (which closes both GUIs)

Yes, but disable doesn't seem to do anything, Delete halts all form1 scripts, and exit closes both GUIs,

I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong.
