GUIAccelerators

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

Here's the code from the example on how to use GUIAccelerators,

I don't quite understand how the aArray works, I want to only have 1 accelerator.

This is what I tried: Dim $AccelKeys[0][1]=["{ENTER}"] 

But as I don't quite understand the [0][1] I'm having problems getting it to work

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("Custom MsgBox", 225, 80)

    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please select a button.", 10, 10)
    Local $idYes = GUICtrlCreateButton("Yes", 10, 50, 65, 25)
    Local $idNo = GUICtrlCreateButton("No", 80, 50, 65, 25)
    Local $idExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 150, 50, 65, 25)

    ; Set GUIAccelerators for the button controlIDs, these being Ctrl + y and Ctrl + n
    Local $aAccelKeys[2][2] = [["^y", $idYes],["^n", $idNo]]
    GUISetAccelerators($aAccelKeys)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Display the GUI.

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "You selected", "Close")
                ExitLoop

            Case $idYes
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "You selected", "Yes") ; Displays if the button was selected or the hotkey combination Ctrl + y was pressed.

            Case $idNo
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "You selected", "No") ; Displays if the button was selected or the hotkey combination Ctrl + n was pressed.

            Case $idExit
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "You selected", "Exit")
                ExitLoop

        EndSwitch
    WEnd
    GUIDelete() ; Delete the GUI.
EndFunc   ;==>Example

legend,

Thread moved. :)

You need to correctly dimension the array, which has as many rows as accelerator keys and always 2 columns. In the example there are 2 keys

Local $aAccelKeys[2][2] = [["^y", $idYes],["^n", $idNo]] ; 2 rows and 2 columns
and the array looks like this:

Row       Key       ControlID

0         ^y        $idYes
1         ^n        $idNo
Remember that AutoIt arrays start at 0. ;)

So if you want only one key, you would use:

Local $AccelKeys[1][2]=["{ENTER}", $idControlID] ; 1 row, but still 2 columns
Clearer now? :)

P.S. Dim is deprecated and you should use Local /Global to specifically sett the scope of the variable - see the Variables - using Global, Local and ByRef tutorial in the Wiki for details. ;)
