GUIDelete on click

8 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I was wondering if it is possible to close (delete) a GUI when i click on something else rather than the GUI it self
Simple; left-mouse-click on the GUI (GUI stay alive) // left-mouse-click on the start button from Windows, or somewhere else (GUI Delete)

I have made a While loop but the GUI is still closed even if i click on the GUI itself.

 

; START GUI LOOP
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch 1
        Case -3
            Exit

         Case _IsPressed ("01")

            If $msg == $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN Then
            
            ; Do Nothing
            
            Else

               GUIDelete($GUI_PREVIEW)
               GUIDelete($GUI_EMBED)
            Return

            EndIf

         Case Else

            Msgbox(1,"Hi","Something Else")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

 

Thanks guys!

Why wouldn't the close button of the GUI be enough?

Because my GUI doesn't have a close button :)
And when the GUI is active in the background i would like it to close automatically, so i would like to delete the GUI when i am doing something else rather than working in the GUI.

Hmm, Tried that but the problem is that the GUI should not be Deleted when i am working in it.
So when i attach the left mouse button as a Hotkey it is closing my GUI even if i am pressing a button in that GUI,...

What I don't get is why you need to close the GUI while in the background?
Can't you bring it back into foreground and then click the button designed to close the application?

Blueman,

Perhaps something like this?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <TrayConstants.au3>

Global $hGUI



Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1) ; Use event trapping for tray menu
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3) ; Default tray menu items will not be shown

$cTray_ShowGUI = TrayCreateItem("Create GUI")
TrayItemSetOnEvent($cTray_ShowGUI, "_ShowGUI")
TrayItemSetState($cTray_ShowGUI, $TRAY_DISABLE)
TrayCreateItem("")
TrayCreateItem("Exit")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "_Exit")
TraySetState()

_ShowGUI()

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit

    ; As soon as the GUI is not active, delete it
    If Not WinActive($hGUI) Then
        GUIDelete($hGUI)
        TrayItemSetState($cTray_ShowGUI, $TRAY_ENABLE)
    EndIf



WEnd



Func _ShowGUI()
    $hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
    GUISetState()
    TrayItemSetState($cTray_ShowGUI, $TRAY_DISABLE)
EndFunc



Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Although unless your GUI is very simple and called only rarely, I would recommend creating it just the once and then hiding/showing it rather then deleting/recreating it each time.
