Updating menu items on event

Recommended Posts

WoodGrain

Hi guys,

I'm using this startup example to allow the program menu to insert an option to "AutoStart" the script. What I'd like to do is update the checkbox of the menu item after they click it to then reflect the "AutoStart" state (on or off).

How do I update the menu on the event someone clicks the menu option? The registry is updating correctly, and if I close and re-run the script the menu is updated, but not in the same script execution. I wasn't sure with TrayItemSetState for my "Func AutoStart()" Function what the "controlID" was. I tried 0 through to 3 and "AutoStart" text. Perhaps this is where I'm going wrong?

; Add custom tray icon menu
#NoTrayIcon
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <TrayConstants.au3>
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3)
Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1)

#include '_Startup.au3'
TrayCreateItem("AutoStart")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "AutoStart")
If _StartupRegistry_Exists() Then
    TrayItemSetState(-1, $TRAY_CHECKED)
Else
    TrayItemSetState(-1, $TRAY_UNCHECKED)
EndIf
TrayCreateItem("About")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "About")
TrayCreateItem("")
TrayCreateItem("Exit")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "ExitScript")
TraySetOnEvent($TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYDOUBLE, "About")
TraySetState($TRAY_ICONSTATE_SHOW)

Func About()
    MsgBox(0,"About","etc")
EndFunc

Func AutoStart()
    If _StartupRegistry_Exists() Then
        _StartupRegistry_Uninstall()
        TrayItemSetState("AutoStart", $TRAY_UNCHECKED)
    Else
        _StartupRegistry_Install()
        TrayItemSetState("AutoStart", $TRAY_CHECKED)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func ExitScript()
    Exit
EndFunc

Thanks!

I note that I could probably use the "$TRAY_ITEM_RADIO" for "TrayCreateItem" but would prefer the check box, looks cleaner and only gives them 1 option.

The checkbox appears to function, it's just the menu isn't updating while the script is running.

WoodGrain,

You need to use a ControlID in the TrayItemSetState call - at the moment you are using a literal text string:

#include <TrayConstants.au3>

Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3)
Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1)

Global $bRegIstalled = False

$cAutoStart = TrayCreateItem("AutoStart")   ; Store ControlID here
TrayItemSetOnEvent($cAutoStart, "AutoStart")

TrayCreateItem("About")
TrayCreateItem("")
TrayCreateItem("Exit")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "ExitScript")

TraySetState($TRAY_ICONSTATE_SHOW)

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd



Func AutoStart()
    If $bRegIstalled Then
        $bRegIstalled = False
        TrayItemSetState($cAutoStart, $TRAY_UNCHECKED) ; Use it here...
    Else
        $bRegIstalled = True
        TrayItemSetState($cAutoStart, $TRAY_CHECKED)   ; ...and here
    EndIf

EndFunc



Func ExitScript()
    Exit
EndFunc

All clear?

Perfect! Thank you Melba23!

I thought I was on the path with the ControlID.

      Hi,
      after I recognized that some of my scripts fail if they are at windows startup I researched for a solution. Problem could be fixed if I wait about 120 seconds after login. So how to measure this?
      #include-once #include <AD.au3> #include <Date.au3> ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _SecondsAfterLogin ; Description ...: Returns how many seconds are gone since last login ; Syntax ........: _SecondsAfterLogin() ; Parameters ....: None ; Return values .: Success - Integer of seconds ; Failure - 0, sets @error to 1 ; Author ........: Conrad Zelck ; Modified ......: ; Remarks .......: ; Related .......: ; Link ..........: ; Example .......: Yes ; =============================================================================================================================== Func _SecondsAfterLogin() Local $sDate Local $iSec $sDate = __GetLogonTime() ; UTC If @error Then $sDate = __GetLogonTime_AD() ; local time If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0) Else $sDate = __LocalTime($sDate) ; UTC to local time EndIf $iSec = __TimeDifference($sDate) Return $iSec EndFunc #region - INTERNAL_USE_ONLY Func __GetLogonTime($sUserName = @UserName, $sComputerName = @ComputerName) ; Idea by trancexx: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/113611-if-isadmin-not-detected-as-admin/ Local $aRet = DllCall("netapi32.dll", "long", "NetUserGetInfo", "wstr", $sComputerName, "wstr", $sUserName, "dword", 11, "ptr*", 0) If @error Or $aRet[0] Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0) Local $sSeconds = DllStructGetData(DllStructCreate("ptr;ptr;ptr;ptr;dword;dword;dword;ptr;ptr;dword;dword;dword;dword;ptr;dword;ptr;dword;dword;byte;dword", $aRet[4]), 10) DllCall("netapi32.dll", "long", "NetApiBufferFree", "ptr", $aRet[4]) Local $sLastLogon = _DateAdd('s', Number($sSeconds), "1970/01/01 00:00:00") Return $sLastLogon EndFunc Func __GetLogonTime_AD() Local $iSuccess = _AD_Open() If $iSuccess = 1 Then Local $sDate = _AD_GetLastLoginDate() $sDate = __NumberDate_StringDate($sDate) _AD_Close() Return $sDate Else Return SetError(1, 0, 0) EndIf EndFunc Func __NumberDate_StringDate($sDate) Local $y, $m, $d, $h, $min, $s $y = StringMid($sDate,1, 4) $m = StringMid($sDate,5, 2) $d = StringMid($sDate,7, 2) $h = StringMid($sDate,9, 2) $min = StringMid($sDate,11, 2) $s = StringMid($sDate,13, 2) $sDate = $y & "/" & $m & "/" & $d & " " & $h & ":" & $min & ":" & $s Return $sDate EndFunc Func __LocalTime($sDate) Local $iTimeZoneOffset Local $aTimeZone = _Date_Time_GetTimeZoneInformation() If $aTimeZone[0] <> 2 Then $iTimeZoneOffset = ($aTimeZone[1]) * -1 Else $iTimeZoneOffset = ($aTimeZone[1] + $aTimeZone[7]) * -1 EndIf $iTimeZoneOffset /= 60 ; in hours Local $sHour = StringMid($sDate, 12, 2) $sHour += $iTimeZoneOffset $sDate = StringLeft($sDate, 11) & $sHour & StringRight($sDate, 6) Return $sDate EndFunc Func __TimeDifference($sDate) Local $sNow = _NowCalc() Local $sDiff = _DateDiff("s", $sDate, $sNow) Local $iDiff = Number($sDiff) Return $iDiff EndFunc #endregion - INTERNAL_USE_ONLY I had to look what kind of login it is. Some of my computers are logging in with active directory and other not.
      Here is an example:

      I have a working program currently driven largely through menu selections. I would like to add a toolbar where most of the tollbar button actions are basically the same as menu items, but quicker to access. I have been wading around in toolbar examples, MSDN pages etc, it's clearly going to be a bit of a slog to get everything right, including tooltips etc. I thought I would start with something simple to prove the principle.
      Using bits from the help file examples I have a small program that successfully displays a toolbar. However, what seemed like the most elegant way to deal with the button commands does not seem to work. My understanding was that a toolbar button fires a WM_COMMAND message, with the command Id set by the second parameter in the call to
      _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton ( $hWnd, $iID, $iImage)
      so I though it would be a good idea to set this Id to the same value as my menu item Id; then it would run the same task which is what I wanted. This did not work. I am using message loop mode and would like to stick with this because some of my scripts run hardware at the same time as the gui; it is easier if I don't have to worry about code being interrupted with the hardware in an unknown state . So I added a handler for WM_COMMAND, with some cribbed display code to try and see why. The toolbar button defintely fired a WM_COMMAND message and the Id looked the same, so no explanation there.
      I guess the issue is with GUIGetMsg() which may be constructed to ignore all but a limited number of control handles, i.e. those made with the GuiCtrlCreate... commands; this is speculation.
      I would dearly love to find a tidy way to get around this. Having some controls handled in the message loop and some in a WM_COMMAND handler, performing the same task, feels ugly. I would be very grateful for further insight from someone experienced with handling a toolbar. Perhaps I should be trying to fire the menu item. I have attached a code snippet to try and illustrate the issue.

      Hi, i searched some topics but cannot found a simple way to do that:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; I tried this but user reported that it work in 2006, not seems work actually $filemenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("&File") $fileitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Open",$filemenu) GuiCtrlSetImage($fileitem, "shell32.dll", 4) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Also tried:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) $filemenu = TrayCreateMenu("&File") $fileitem = TrayCreateItem("Open",$filemenu) ;GuiCtrlSetImage($fileitem, "shell32.dll", 4) ;GuiCtrlSetImage(TrayItemGetHandle($fileitem), "shell32.dll", 4) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Well.. thanks in advance!
       
      Ok. I found this working example from Yashied. If i cannot find a simple then i will go with it
