Hide all controls in GUI

Recommended Posts

TheOnlyOne

Hello, I am trying to hide all the controls in my GUI. Is it possible to do an easier way than to use GUICtrlSetState on every single Control I have?

$aGuiSize = WinGetClientSize($Form1)
$HideControls = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",0,0,$aGuiSize[0],$aGuiSize[1]

voilá


Heroes, there is no such thing

One day I'll discover what IE.au3 has of special for so many users using it.
C'mon there's InetRead and WinHTTP, way better

Okay I should be more specific. I want to be able to hide and show the Control. With your example I would have to change the size of the control over and over again just as with setstate

Your GUI is resizeable? You just create a label above all the other controls, it will hide what is behind it, to show them again you just need to hide that label

Here's how I'd do it.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 616, 439, 192, 124)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group1", 246, 91, 254, 186)
Global $DummyStart = GUICtrlCreateDummy() ; get start of control creation control id
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio1", 312, 108, 113, 17)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio2", 312, 231, 113, 23)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio3", 312, 211, 113, 17)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio4", 312, 149, 113, 17)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio5", 312, 190, 113, 17)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio6", 312, 129, 113, 17)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio7", 312, 169, 113, 17)
Global $DummyEnd = GUICtrlCreateDummy() ; get end of control creation id
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
Global $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton(" Hide ", 273, 372, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    Sleep(100)
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $Button1
            Button1Click()
        Case $GUI_Event_Close
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Button1Click()
    Local Static $toggle = True
    $toggle = Not $toggle
    For $Loop = $DummyStart + 1 To $DummyEnd - 1
        If $toggle Then
            GUICtrlSetState($Loop, $GUI_SHOW)
            GUICtrlSetData($Button1, " Hide ")
        Else
            GUICtrlSetState($Loop, $GUI_HIDE)
            GUICtrlSetData($Button1, " Show ")
        EndIf
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>Button1Click

Easily adaptable to any script if the controls to be hidden, are created in sequence.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

      Title pretty much says it all. Im wondering what button the "primary mouse button" is, and while im here i would also like to know what the "secondary mouse button" is. I´m guessing its the left and right mouse buttons but i could not confirm this.
      Thank you!

      Hi guys,
      I'm learning about GUI's, I'm trying the below code, the idea being if I press the letter "e" while I have the GUI open I want the label color to change to green (I'm using a UDF for label colors). But every time I press "e" on my keyboard I just get a "ding" sound from my speakers and nothing changes with the label.
      I've looked at using something like "While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE" as I've seen it in other code instead of "While 1", but I don't think it's relevant.
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>; for GUI... #include <GUIRichLabel.au3>; UDF for rich text label fonts #include <Misc.au3>; for _IsPressed $myLetter = "e" $hGUI = GUICreate("test", 700, 60) $lbl2 = _GUICtrlRichLabel_Create($hGUI, '<font color="purple">' & $myLetter & '</font>', 10, 10); , 260, 25 GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Local $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll") While 1 if _IsPressed(Hex($myLetter), $hDLL) Then While _IsPressed(Hex($myLetter), $hDLL) Sleep(250) WEnd _GUICtrlRichLabel_SetData($lbl2, '<font color="green">' & $myLetter & '</font>') Sleep(2000) DllClose($hDLL) Exit EndIf Sleep(50) WEnd DllClose($hDLL) I am using an array of letters that I'm wanting to do this for, but as I can't get it to work I've stripped it down to the simplest code I can think of to try and get this working first. Appreciate any help.
      Thanks!

      and this program works with the global hot keys

      http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=107965
      but the problem here that this UDF cant be detect the win key.
      can you help me to add it, or if there are any others UDFSS wich do that work please give me some.

      Hello everyone,
      I have a radio button ($Radio1), which I want to disable as soon as another one get's checked (Radio5). (The system fails if the radio button i'm troubling with also gets checked).
      I know how to disable him:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5), $GUI_DISABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5, 128) But if i try to enable $Radio5 again, after $Radio1 isn't checked anymore, it fails:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=Not 1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5), $GUI_ENABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5, 64)  
      Anyone knows why?
