As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
Here's my code so far:
; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.
Buttons on GUI to perform different tasks. SETUP is a task that involves displaying another GUI, doing calculations, writing lines to 2 external files, displaying information on GUI labels. The info from the displayed GUI (quantity made and job completed YES or NO) must be included on the written lines. I cannot get the script to run synchronously (waterfall execution 1st one ends before 2nd one starts.) That means lines written to the files do not contain the required data. I have read through FORUM and thought by inserting a boolean value and changing TRUE FALSE that I could solve this issue. I would have to set/reset the boolean before every function call to make it work. I've tried using Sleep but that just slows everything down and makes main GUI look unresponsive
Is there a trick or tip someone can provide that forces synchronous execution?
I am using OPT GUIOnEventMode
Thank you for any insight into this issue.
I encountered this strange issue while working on a freelance project, I cannot give you the webpage/website on which this is happening because it is an internal site which is inaccessible externally. I am attempting to create a GUI with an IE control embedded in it, but when I navigate to the desired address, it shows a blank white page.
The webpage does load if I use a different browser or normal (non-embedded) IE instance.
I managed to get my hands on the source of the blank page:
Any suggestions? Here is a basic outline of the script:
#include <IE.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Main() While True Sleep(1000) WEnd Func Main() ; Create GUI $hGUI = GUICreate("", $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT, $iLeft, $iTop, $WS_POPUP) $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() ;$oIE = _IECreate() ; This works, but it is not embedded in the GUI GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT) GUISetState() ; Navigate to the URL and authenticate _IENavigate($oIE, $URL) EndFunc Thank you for the advice in advance!
I have a program that I'm working on, and I have a button that's supposed to stop a running function, when it's pressed.
However, I cannot get that to work.
I put together a sample script that is set up in the same way:
#include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 290, 106, 192, 124) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit") Global $btnStart = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 24, 24, 99, 49) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($btnStart, "_Start") Global $btnStop = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 152, 24, 99, 49) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($btnStop, "_Stop") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 ;~ $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() ;~ Switch $nMsg ;~ Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ;~ Exit ;~ EndSwitch WEnd Func _Start() Global $bStartFlag = True $num = 1 While $bStartFlag ConsoleWrite($num & @CRLF) Sleep(1000) $num += 1 WEnd ConsoleWrite("Exited loop.." & @CRLF) EndFunc Func _Stop() Global $bStartFlag = False EndFunc Func _Exit() Exit EndFunc
With the code above, while the _Start() func is running, the Stop button doesn't do anything.
I even threw a MsgBox into the _Stop() func, to see if the script was at least accessing the _Stop() func. But that showed that the _Stop() func is not being accessed at all while the _Start() func is running.
I'm sure this is a simple solution that I'm just over looking. But I can't figure out what that solution is lol.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
I'm trying to write a script that connects with a VBA/COM API to get the status of a connected phone. I've been looking up and down this forum for tips or other user's experiences, but I can't seem to find anything (even remotely) similar. It shouldn't be so hard to do, however.
Software I'm trying to connect to
I'm trying to integrate CallCenter by using their API, which is documented over here : JustRemotePhone API Reference
Things I've tried
I've tried using ObjCreate but I don't get any result, it always returns the same (negative) error.
#Version 1 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhone.RemotePhoneService") #Version 2 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhoneCOM.RemotePhoneService") #Version 3 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhoneCOM.RemotePhoneService.Application") None of the three versions I tried seem to deliver any result other than a negative error value which basically says that the given class is not valid.
I am starting to get the hang of AutoIt by now, but unmanaged programming languages and object-oriented stuff is still quite a grey zone for me. If anyone could help me 'talk' to this application, I'd be immensely grateful!
Thanks in advance and kind regards from Belgium!
