Tricky GUI States

3 posts in this topic

Hello, Please look at the code below:

#include-once

; -- Created with ISN Form Studio 2 for ISN AutoIt Studio -- ;
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiButton.au3>

Global $ParentX = GUICreate("ParentX",500,500,-1,-1,-1,-1)
GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF,$ParentX)
Global $ButtonX = GUICtrlCreateButton("ButtonX",200,235,100,30,-1,-1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$ParentX)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        
        Case $ButtonX
            LaunchChild()

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func LaunchChild()
    Local $ChildX = GUICreate("ChildX",250,250,-1,-1,-1,-1)
    GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF,$ChildX)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$ChildX)


    While 1
        $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                GUIDelete($ChildX)
                Return

        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc

While ChildX is active, ParentX should be inaccessible (i.e when clicked on parent it should not become active). How can I do this?

Thanks in Advance, TD :)

TheDcoder,

Use GUISetState to disable/re-enable the parent.

Thanks Melba, I was confused & puzzled b/c I tried many Styles and Ex-Styles to do this.

Thanks again, TD :)
