Hotkey on a form

4 posts in this topic

I have a custom form with a combobox and 2 buttons (OK and Cancel). On launch, my form will place the focus on the combobox. I'd like it so once the user scrolls to what they want, they should be able to just press the ENTER key which in turn would envoke my $button_OK code.

Possible?

Possible?

From the FM:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUICtrlRead") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$n1=GUICtrlCreateList ("", 10,10,-1,100 )

GUICtrlSetData(-1,"item1|item2|item3", "item2")

$n2=GUICtrlCreateButton ("button",0,100)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)      ; the focus is on this button

GUISetState ()    ; will display an empty dialog box
; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
Do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    if $msg = $n2 then
        msgbox(0,"list=", GUICtrlRead($n1)); display the value
    endif
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

This should get you started...

Actually it should be like this for a button

$n2=GUICtrlCreateButton ("button",0,100)

GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DEFBUTTON) ; the focus is on this button

using beta _IsPressed function, the combo box can have focus and do what you want

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>

$Title = "My GUI combo"
GUICreate($Title) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$cb_input = GUICtrlCreateCombo("item1", 10, 10); create first item
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "item2|item3", "item3"); add other item snd set a new default

$btn_Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 10, 40, 120, 20)

GUISetState()

$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")
; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   If _Monitor_InputBox($Title, $cb_input, $dll) Then $msg = $btn_Exit
   Select
      Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         ExitLoop
  Case $msg = $btn_Exit
   MsgBox(0, "test", "User pressed enter")
   ExitLoop
   EndSelect
   
WEnd
DllClose($dll)

Func _Monitor_InputBox($Title, $cb_input, $dll)
   Local $WIN_SIZE
   $WIN_SIZE = WinGetClientSize($Title)
   If $WIN_SIZE[0] And $WIN_SIZE[1] Then
      If (ControlGetFocus($Title) = "Edit1") Then
         If _IsPressed ("0D", $dll) Then Return 1; user pressed enter key
      EndIf
   EndIf
EndFunc  ;==>_Monitor_InputBox
