Trigger input ONLY when hitting enter

Recommended Posts

corgano

Assume a simple gui with one input. I have the usual code using a while loop:

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case -3
            Exit
        Case $Input
            consolewrite("Input triggered" & @CRLF)
    endswitch
wend

What I want to achieve is this. When a user enters text in the input ad presses enter, it triggers. However, if they enter or change the input and then click somewhere else, without hitting enter in only that input box, it will not trigger. What is the best way to do this?

My best idea so far is to ho a hotkeyset("{enter}", "inputhandler"), but then I need to check the window and keep unsetting / send enter / setting it if they hit enter in another window. Is there a better way?

corgano,

I use an Accelerator key to do this:

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

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

$cInput_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 100,20)
$cInput_2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 50, 100,20)

$cDummy = GUICtrlCreateDummy()

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

; Set accelerator for Enter to action the Dummy code
Dim $AccelKeys[1][2]=[["{ENTER}", $cDummy]]
GUISetAccelerators($AccelKeys)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $cDummy
            ; Check input has focus
            If _WinAPI_GetFocus() = GUICtrlGetHandle($cInput_1) Then
                $sText = GUICtrlRead($cInput_1)
                MsgBox(0,"test", "You typed " & $sText & " in Input 1")
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Probably the best way to do it is with a guictrlsetonevent.

$gui = GuiCreate("",200,200,-1,-1)
Opt("GUIOnEventMode",1)
GuiSetOnEvent(-3,"_Exit")
$input_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Field 1",5,5,100,20)
$input_2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Field 2",5,40,100,20)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($input_1,"_Input_1")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($input_2,"_Input_2")
GuiSetState()

While 1
Sleep(10)
Wend

Func _Exit()
Exit
EndFunc

Func _Input_1()
    MsgBox(0,"Field 1","Field one (input 1) has been read!"&@crlf&"Read: "&guictrlread($input_1))
EndFunc

Func _Input_2()
    MsgBox(0,"Field 2","Field two (input 2) has been read!"&@crlf&"Read: "&guictrlread($input_2))
EndFunc

​That doesn't answer the question, because both boxes still fire events on text change, and not only when enter is hit. I personally prefer using a loop, although being honest I don't know why.

            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

​Dude, when did we get GUISetAccelerators()? That is exactly the behavior I was looking for! awesome :D. Question though, how come it works for input1, but not for input2? How do I tell it which input(s) I want to be triggered by {enter}?

Assume I wanted input2 to be activated by enter and input1 not to trigger any event, how would you change the example to reflect this?

Edit: I'm either an idiot or half asleep. not sure which yet. Just realized why. Thanks for the example!

corgano,

when did we get GUISetAccelerators()?

 From the Help file changelog: 3.2.12.0 (16th May, 2008) (Release) - Added: GUISetAccelerators(). So not exactly new.....

how come it works for input1, but not for input2? How do I tell it which input(s) I want to be triggered by {enter}?

 I would have thought that this section of the code would have given a clue:

; Check input has focus
    If _WinAPI_GetFocus() = GUICtrlGetHandle($cInput_1) Then

If you want other controls reacting to the Accelerator then you just need to check if they have focus.

      Hello...

      How i can write data from txt to +3 Input?
      Example:
      In txt i have:
      Michael XYZ, 21, Boston
      Olex Marshal, 17, Boston
      Alex XYZ, 19, Boston
       
      And now i want load that data to input in autoit. 

      Name          y.o          city
      [ Input1]  [Input2] [Input3]
      [ Input4]  [Input5] [Input6]
      [ Input7]  [Input8] [Input9]
       
      After load should be:
      Name               y.o            city
      [Michael XYZ]      [21]     [Boston]
      [ Olex Marshal]  [17]      [Boston]
      [ Alex XYZ]           [19]      [Boston]
       
      FileOpen("Test.txt",0)                          $aas = GUICtrlSetData($Input1, FileReadLine("Test.txt",1))             FileClose("Test.txt") But its wrong. ofcourse its load all to input 1. So now how do you load this data directly into each input separately? The comma stop sign is here. Each line is a new person

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

      Hello, 
      i have a Problem with  _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes, everything is working as excepted if u are on Windows 7.

      But if u are on Windows 10 the transparent background of a control is not clickable anymore. 

      Could someone help?

      Please see example below, put cmd.jpg into the same folder as Example.au3

      Please see trigger.jpg to see which sections are not clickable in Windows 10 (the red dots, the green dots are clickable) on Windows 7 the red ones and green ones are clickable.
       
      The same problem occurs if i use

      Hello everyones reading this post,
      I'm struggling at resizing properly my radio buttons to fit long text inside without affecting others radio buttons and also adjust position of them relative to the string.
      I tried with _StringSize UDF but I guess im too tired to figure out how to use it correctly..
      I also tried: _Control_SetWidth2Text I found on this forum, it work aslong im not maximizing GUI (radio text is gone when I maximize and maximize is a must)
       
      here is the code example, I hope someone can figure out (sorry if guictrlsetpos is not included in the example, I know thats probably the way to go but I wanted to make sure there is nothing better before use it)
      Thank you
