Tooltip for generated checkboxes

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :)

I have the following piece of code:

 

Func ManualActions()
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
    Global $ManualActionsGui = GUICreate("Automated Task List Suite", 460, 490, -1, -1)
    GUISetIcon ($Images & "\ManualActionsGUI.ico")
    GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF)
    GUICtrlCreatePic($Images & "\SAClogo.jpg", 110, 10, 240, 80)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("---MANUAL ACTIONS---", 173, 100, 300, -1)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8.5, 700, 0)
    Local $ResetAll = GUICtrlCreateButton("Reset Everything", 10, 460, 97, 30)
    Local $SaveAndQuit = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Save and Quit", 355, 460, 97, 30)
    Local $Back = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Show  Results", 180, 460, 97, 30)
    Local $iX = 10, $iY = 120
    $aCheckboxes = _ReadINI()
    For $x = 0 To UBound($aCheckboxes) - 1
        Local $idCheckBox = _CreateCheckbox($aCheckboxes[$x][0], $iX, $iY)
        If _Crypt_HashData($aCheckboxes[$x][0] & "|" & $sINIFile & "|" & $GUI_CHECKED, $CALG_MD5) = $aCheckboxes[$x][1] Then
            GUICtrlSetState(-1, BitOR($GUI_CHECKED, $GUI_DISABLE))
        EndIf
        $aCheckboxes[$x][0] = $idCheckBox
        $iY += 20
    Next
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit", $ManualActionsGui)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent($ResetAll, "_ResetAll")
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent($SaveAndQuit, "_Exit")
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent ($Back, "_Back2Results")
    GUISetState()
    $iRunning = 1
    While $iRunning
        Sleep(10)
    WEnd
    GUIDelete($ManualActionsGui)
    FileDelete($sINIFile)
    ManualActions()
EndFunc


Func _Back2Results()
ShellExecute ($Results & "\Results.png")
EndFunc

Func _ResetAll()
    $iRunning = 0
EndFunc

Func _Checked()
    If GUICtrlRead(@GUI_CtrlId) = 1 Then GUICtrlSetState(@GUI_CtrlId, $GUI_DISABLE)
EndFunc  

Func _CreateCheckbox($sLabel, $iX, $iY)
    Local $idCheckBox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($sLabel, $iX, $iY, -1, -1)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Checked")
    Return $idCheckBox

EndFunc

Func _GenINIFile()
     Local $aCheckboxes[14] = ["Put a label with hostname on the computer?", "Check if AHCI is set in the BIOS?", "Add all applications in AD?", "Check the installed drivers?", "Customize all desktop icons?", _
            "Restore User's data?", "Run CISCO ANYCONNECT VPN once?", "Update Firefox and Google Chrome?", "Restore user's Bookmarks?", "Deploy CrashPlanPro, remove new licence and send a mail to the Service Desk?", _
            "Check if printers the User needs are present?", "Copy SAPlogin.ini from former Computer (if needed)?", "Encrypt the Disk with PGP?", "Update Remedy database?"]
    FileClose(FileOpen($sINIFile, 2))
    For $x = 0 To UBound($aCheckboxes) - 1
        IniWrite($sINIFile, "Checkbox_Labels", $x, $aCheckboxes[$x])
        IniWrite($sINIFile, "Checkbox_States", $x, "")
    Next
EndFunc

*I have shorten the code by deleting some functions*

As you can see, I'm generating checkboxes in an array but I want to improve things by adding tooltips to some of them when the user will hoover a "help" label added at the end of concerned control. 
If this can help, I uploaded an image adding what I imagine this could be at the end.

I don't know how to handle that and I hope that some of you can give me a hand here :) and don't hesitate to ask if you need more ;)

Thanks!

There's not enough code there to give you a good answer, not to mention it isn't runable. I'd need to at least see what is in ReadIni for example, you could put the tooltip command somewhere like this.

For $x = 0 To UBound($aCheckboxes) - 1
        $aCheckboxes[$x][0] = _CreateCheckbox($aCheckboxes[$x][0], $iX, $iY, )
        If _Crypt_HashData($aCheckboxes[$x][0] & "|" & $sINIFile & "|" & $GUI_CHECKED, $CALG_MD5) = $aCheckboxes[$x][1] Then
            GUICtrlSetState(-1, BitOR($GUI_CHECKED, $GUI_DISABLE))
        EndIf
        $iY += 20
        GUICtrlSetTip($aCheckboxes[$x][0], "Some text goes here")
    Next

But I don't know how you'd want to determine which checkboxes need tooltips and which don't, and where you'd get the text for the tooltip. But you can always use an If/Then statement to figure out if you want to apply a tooltip to a particular checkbox.

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.

You could create a new section of the INI file that holds the tooltip string values you want to use, check to see if a tooltip string is defined and if it is create the tooltips where BrewMan suggested.  Of course if you want to use a label instead of applying the tooltip to the check box then you will create it there and apply the tooltip to it.

[Checkbox_Labels]
0=Checkbox #1
1=Checkbox #2
2=Checkbox #3
3=Checkbox #4
[Checkbox_States]
0=0x23360DF63FDDE053F89F1864102527EA
1=0x1F6967D2953411A647B876176E99BF4C
2=0x10256744BEA75A6381A2B24B1353728C
3=0xA168136AD9279E110FC818EB08D61A9B
[Checkbox_Tooltips]
0=
1=Tooltip Text for Checkbox #2
2=Tooltip Text for Checkbox #3
3=

My tool is enough complex to be run by someone external of my company. Indeed, it's checking for certain things after we image a computer. But, I can give you the full code if you need, no worries for me. 

But my case is solved thanks to both of you. Indeed, I added an new section in my .ini file and used the GUICtrlSetTip function (with some other changes in my arrays).

Thanks for pointing this to me and have a good day!

      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?

      Good evening everyone
      First, I want to apologize with you for the title not very clear, but I thought a little bit on which title to set at the thread, and this is the one that came in mind.
      Now, let me explain what I'm trying to understand.

      I am making an application ( with n clients ), with an SQLite Database, which has a Main form, and n sub-forms... 
      Since these sub-forms are called several times, because they are used to add or update records to the Database, I put the code that generates the GUI of these sub-forms in Functions.
      There are two sub-forms which are "treated" as two main forms, since even them have n sub-forms, which perform various tasks.
      Where am I stucked?

      For the Main form I created a Status Bar, in order to display messages ( add/delete/update/search results ), and it works perfectly with all the forms which don't have other sub-forms.
      For the two forms, which indeed have n sub-forms, I created two separated Status Bars, which are (re)created everytime I call the function that then displays the form.
      Practically, I can't set icons to these two Status Bars, and I don't know why.
      I'm really sorry that I don't feel clear enough, so, here you are an example of what I am saying.
      I recreated exactly what my script does:
      #include <GuiButton.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiStatusBar.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $frmSubForm, _ $txtSubFormField, _ $sbSubFormStatusBar, _ $objSB_IconError = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(109), _ $objSB_IconInformation = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(277) #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmMainForm = GUICreate("Main Form", 300, 300, -1, -1) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "ExitApplication") $sbMainStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmMainForm) $btnCreateSubForm = GUICtrlCreateButton("Create Sub Form", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "GenerateSubForm") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbMainStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbMainStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func ExitApplication() Exit EndFunc Func GenerateSubForm() #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmSubForm = GUICreate("Sub-Form", 300, 300, -1, -1, -1, -1, $frmMainForm) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "DeleteSubForm") $txtSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, 100, 20) $btnCheckSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Field", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "CheckSubFormField") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") $sbSubFormStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmSubForm) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbSubFormStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbSubFormStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### EndFunc Func DeleteSubForm() ; Declared Globally => $frmSubForm GUIDelete($frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $frmMainForm) EndFunc Func WriteToStatusBar($sbStatusBar, $objSB_Icon, $strText) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetIcon($sbStatusBar, 0, $objSB_Icon) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbStatusBar, $strText) ConsoleWrite("Icon Handle: " & $objSB_Icon & @CRLF) EndFunc Func CheckSubFormField() ; Declared Globally => $txtSubFormField If GUICtrlRead($txtSubFormField) = "" Then ; Declared Globally => $sbStatusBar WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconError, "Field NOK.") Else WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconInformation, "Field OK.") EndIf EndFunc The text is set, but icon is not.
      Could someone please tell me why?
      Thanks everyone in advance  

      Best Regards.

      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
