Gui updates dynamically with user's input - duplicates it


Go to solution Solved by Melba23,

Recommended Posts

Good Morning :) Yes, it's 12 AM here LOL.. so can't say good evening... anywho lol... it's late and I'm losing it haha sry... Love you guys, love the apps and all the support!

I have somewhat lost my mind in the forums and trying to get my gui to update a label from an input box  on the same gui without the gui flashing like crazy... Point is I want to take that user input and VISUALLY use it to update the text in the rest of the gui... Is this possible without this insane flicker / flashing every time the mouse moves?

Am I attacking this the wrong way? I know people have used OnEvent Mode - but I need  it where folks type... not just when the mouse moves or clicks...
 $GUI_EVENT_MOUSEMOVE or $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
 

If I'm screwed I'm screwed... I'm just to tired to do this right, right now.  "Yeah, to hell with it TARS. Just give it to me straight" - Interstellar

Also - If I offended anyone, please let me know and I'll edit my forum text. I'm just tired.

While 1

    If GuiCtrlRead($I_IPAddress01) <> "IP ADDRESS" and GuiCtrlRead($I_ComputerName01) <> "COMPUTER NAME" Then
    GUICtrlSetData($L_IP01, GuiCtrlRead($I_IPAddress01))
    GUICtrlSetData($L_Hostname01, GuiCtrlRead($I_ComputerName01))
    EndIf
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $B_Ping01
            Ping01()
        Case $B_EXIT01
            Exit
        Case $B_NBTSTAT01
            NBTSTAT01()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

souldjer777,

 

trying to get my gui to update a label from an input box on the same gui without the gui flashing like crazy

Like this perhaps? ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20)

$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 100, 200, 20)

GUISetState()

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "_WM_COMMAND")

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Func _WM_COMMAND($hWHnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

    ; If it was an update message from our input
    If _WinAPI_HiWord($wParam) = $EN_CHANGE And _WinAPI_LoWord($wParam) = $hInput Then

        ; Set the label to the new data
        GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, GUICtrlRead($hInput))

    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>_WM_COMMAND
I hope that helps. :)

You rock Melba23!!!

ViciousXUSMC,

Those functions break up a 64bit integer into 2 separate 32bit integers - they do essentially what I explain in the BitAND & BitShift part of this thread. ;)

I'm going to look at the include file... #include <WinAPI.au3> and I'll read up on _WinAPI_HiWord And  _WinAPI_LoWord function - VERY COOL!!! Thank you again! YOU ARE AN AUTOIT NINJA!!! :ninja:

souldjer777,

Rather than look in the include - just read the Help file. A relatively small number of people have spent an insane amount of time to make it what it is - one of the best language help files out there. So please benefit from their work. ;)

      Hi everyone,
      I am bit stumped as to why I am not able to set the time in the Date control
      #include <DateTimeConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() Func Example() GUICreate("My GUI get date", 200, 200, 800, 200) Local $idDate = GUICtrlCreateDate("1953/04/25", 10, 10, 185, 20, $DTS_TIMEFORMAT) ; to select a specific default format Local $sStyle = "HH:mm:ss" GUICtrlSendMsg($idDate, $DTM_SETFORMATW, 0, $sStyle) ; Set time Local $iRet = GUICtrlSetData($idDate, '13:33:37') ConsoleWrite('GUICtrlSetData returned ' & ($iRet = 1 ? 'success' : 'failure') & @CRLF) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Loop until the user exits. While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Time", GUICtrlRead($idDate)) EndFunc ;==>Example The documentation for GUICtrlSetData clearly mentions that it uses the same format as GUICtrlRead:
      But I get failure
      What gives?
      Thanks for the help in advance!

      Hello!
      Please help me with this small problem I've encountered while learning to make GUI.
      I'm not able to get the set slider values out of sliders and I can't figure out why.
      The slider value in the example is preset to 1, but whatever I set the slider to, it returns the value 3 when I click Apply and I havn't set any value to 3.
      Where is that 3 coming from?
       
      #include <SliderConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Global $LRSlider Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $Form1 = GUICreate("test slider", 200, 200, -1, -1) Global $LRSlider = GUICtrlCreateSlider(50, 50, 100, 20, $TBS_TOOLTIPS) GUICtrlSetLimit($LRSlider, 50, 1) GUICtrlSetData($LRSlider, 1) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Exit1") Global $ApplyButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("APPLY", 100, 150, 89, 17) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($ApplyButton, "Apply") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Func Apply() GUICtrlRead($LRSlider) MsgBox(0, 0, $LRSlider) GUICtrlSetData($LRSlider, $LRSlider) EndFunc ;==>Apply Func Exit1() Exit EndFunc ;==>Exit1 While 1 Sleep(200) WEnd

      One statement of GUICtrlRead() fails. Result is always "Long/Short" in written file.
      The other GUICtrlRead() calls work as expected

      The final FileWrite() edited so I do have a correct result.

      I wanted to make a countdown timer without queueing the countdown message to the next line but the previous data is removed after using GUICtrlSetData. Any thoughts on how to display the previous data/message?

      Here is an example:
      #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $_main = GUICreate("", 501, 313, -1, -1) Global $g_idMemo = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 2, 2, 496, 274, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $ES_READONLY + $WS_VSCROLL) GUICtrlSetData(-1, "") GUICtrlSetFont($g_idMemo, 9, 400, 0, "Courier New") GUICtrlSendMsg($g_idMemo, $EM_SETREADONLY, True, 0) GUICtrlSetBkColor($g_idMemo, 0xFFFFFF) GUICtrlSetCursor($g_idMemo, -1) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) HotKeySet('{esc}', "_close") Func _close() Exit EndFunc ;==>_close Func MemoWrite($sMessage = "") GUICtrlSetData($g_idMemo, $sMessage & @CRLF, 1) EndFunc ;==>MemoWrite MemoWrite("test message 1") Sleep(1000) MemoWrite("test message 2") Sleep(1000) MemoWrite("test message 3") Sleep(1000) For $i = 5 to 0 Step -1 GUICtrlSetData($g_idMemo, "Program will exit in "&$i&" seconds...") Sleep(1000) Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd
