dynamitemedia,

Glad you got it working properly.

As requested, here is a new version with PGUP/PGDN switching between the top buttons and the others:

after a break i have gotten back to this...  when i click on one of th eiumage buttons i add a pop up that gives info about that image.  but then it messes up... to recreate you can do this:

1.) click on any of the image buttons a pop up will come up, just like i wanted.  
2.) now click on the constants and look what happens

this worked in y old script but it is because in this one you added a child gui in the main gui it looks like  so how do i delete the popup and get this all tidied up?

can i get a explanation on what i was doing wrong, cause i hope to add more info buttons or maybe another popup on that popup via a button on the pop up

dynamitemedia,

The problem is caused by you creating the popup GUI. When you create a GUI AutoIt saves its handle in an internal "default GUI" value which is used to decide in which GUI to create new controls. So when you delete the popup and do not reset this "default GUI" value, AutoIt tries to create the new buttons in a GUI which no longer exists - this obviously fails and so no buttons are appear. As there are no buttons, the array of button ControlIDs only contains blanks and so the loop fires on every pass - hence the never-ending reappearances of the popup.

The solution is to reset the "default GUI" value by using GUISwitch like this:

Func popUpGui($imageLabel)

    Local $hDialog2 = GUICreate("Image Name :    " & $imageLabel, 540, 415, -1, -1)
    Local $img2Use = @ScriptDir & "\thumbs\" & $sListFilter & "\" & $imageLabel & ".bmp"
    Local $iBtnL = GUICtrlCreateButton("", 25, 25, 286, 364, BitOR($BS_BITMAP, $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON))
    GUICtrlSetImage($iBtnL, $img2Use)
    GUISetState()

    While 2
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ; Delete popup GUI
                GUIDelete($hDialog2)
                ; Reset default GUI for control creation
                GUISwitch($hDialog)
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc

Now the main GUI is reset as the one in which to create the new set of buttons and all works as it should when you alter the display using the top 2 selection buttons. All clear?

i am noticing an issue with the code you posted above.  the page down to get back to the bottom won't work...  

so i do the following:

1.) open up gui
2.) page up --  the tab , enter etc work.  the arrow keys do not
3.) then hit page down to get back to gui.  and it won't go back down UNLESS
4.) you click on a box with a mouse


can you check that out and see if you can recreate and fix that bug?  Thanks

Also i added a combo box  so i could do  dropdown , do you think a double enter would be best to go there or a Go button?  i think a double enter would feel natural

no matter how big i make the drop down only the font size will make it thicker, am i missing something in the Docs?

thanks once again @Melba23

sorry :(  i tried l

one question b4 i go to bed and look in more detail my eyes are shot,  did you think a Go buton for drop down is better or double enter?

the double enter would basically be a new

That makes no sense at all to me. Go and get some sleep and come back when you can explain more clearly.

ha the combo box.... it will be loaded with "$sListFilter" items

so when u look in the drop down, you scroll to one and hit enter it selects one of them.

i want that selected item to be used as  a $sListFilter item...  i prefer the 2nd time you hit enter it will send to the 

Func _List_Images($sFilter)

to load the images.  

because going to be more than 6 of them and dont want that many buttons on the top gui... hope that helps

dynamitemedia,

Do you want the combo to replace the existing buttons, or will it be in addition? If the former, then I would suggest that you retain one button to action the selection that has been made in the combo - if the latter then I would just action the combo selection as it is made. Just let me know how you want them to work and I will see what I can do.

 the Go Button will choose image folder basically...

The refresh should refresh whatever page that is being used that time...

do you feel that look is pleasing to the eye?   

also with that set up,  is it even possible to do a Tab?  say i a settings page or what not

The up/down keys do not work in the combo because you have set them as Accel keys - so we have to check whether the combo is open and, if so, cancel the Accel keys (look at lines 177-189):

I have also adjusted the behaviour of the "Refresh" key - if there is nothing to refresh it does nothing! Plus one or two other little tweaks which should be obvious.

I do not fully understand what you mean when you say:

is it even possible to do a Tab?  say i a settings page or what not

Do you mean that you want to put all of that GUI on a tab control with a setting page on another tab? If so I would counsel against it - what is wrong with adding a "Settings" button to open a separate dialog?

ok i went over the code line for line,  cause i obviously added a bunch of new code to it for my gui, lol...  that's when i realized it was not a oversight on my end with the copy and pasting certain code.

when i Tab to the combo box, unless i click with my mouse it wont do anything, am i missing something?   like  i tried tabbing to it and hit enter and still nothing.

Thanks @Melba23  your awesome!

dynamitemedia,

Some people are never satisfied. We need to change the conditions for clearing/resetting the Accel keys.

First, add these lines after having created the combo:

;Create a combobox control.
Local $idComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 40, 32, 260, 250)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 600, 0, "Arial")
;Add items to the combobox.
GUICtrlSetData($idComboBox, "Constants|Functions")
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 600, 0, "Arial")

Local $tInfo
_GUICtrlComboBox_GetComboBoxInfo($idComboBox, $tInfo)
Local $hComboEdit = DllStructGetData($tInfo, "hEdit")
Local $hComboList = DllStructGetData($tInfo, "hList")

And then change the Accel key clear/reset code to this:

; Check if combo has focus and Accel keys set
$hFocus = _WinAPI_GetFocus()
If ($hFocus = $hComboEdit Or $hFocus = $hComboList) And $fAccelSet Then
    ; Clear flag and stop Accel keys
    $fAccelSet = False
    GUISetAccelerators(0, $hGUI)
    GUISetAccelerators(0, $hDialog)
; Check if combo not focused  and Accel keys inactive
ElseIf ($hFocus <> $hComboEdit And $hFocus <> $hComboList) And (Not $fAccelSet) Then
    ; Set flag and reset Accel keys
    $fAccelSet = True
    GUISetAccelerators($aAccelKeys, $hGUI)
    GUISetAccelerators($aAccelKeys, $hDialog)
EndIf

Now the Accel keys are cleared if either the combo edit or list has focus, so the arrow keys will work in either case.
