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.

      Hi, everybody
      I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
      In other words:
          Any PC screen able to calculate the size
          To consider the Task bar size
          To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it

      Notes:
      In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
      Thanks a lot
      PS
      I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.

      For fun, I'm building an app that opens a webpage and refreshes it every 30 seconds.
      But once the script performs _IEAction($oIE, "refresh"), the GUI closes.
      Any help is appreciated.
