How to escape GUIButton?

Recommended Posts

Dear AutoIt Community,

I need some clarification as to why GUI does not work as planned. This is the snippet of code that's troubling me:

Else
      GUICreate("Path", 320, 120, @DesktopWidth / 2 - 160, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 45, -1, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)
      Local $idFile = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 5, 300, 20)
      GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
      Local $idPath = GUICtrlRead($idFile)
      GUICtrlCreateLabel("Type path of .exe or drag file into InputBox", 10, 35)
      Local $idBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 160 - 30, 75, 60, 20)
      GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

      ; Loop until the user exits.
      While 1
         Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
               ExitLoop
            Case $idBtn
               ExitLoop
         EndSwitch
      WEnd

      Run($idPath)
      ProcessWait("Patcher.exe")
      WinWait("Patcher")
      WinWaitActive("Patcher")
      If Not WinActive("Patcher") Then
         WinActivate("atcher")
      EndIf
   EndIf

My problem here is that when I want to exit the created GUI or press the button $idBtn, it won't exit. However, when I execute the following snippet by itself, it works.

GUICreate("Path", 320, 120, @DesktopWidth / 2 - 160, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 45, -1, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)
   Local $idFile = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 5, 300, 20)
   GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
   Local $idPath = GUICtrlRead($idFile)
   GUICtrlCreateLabel("Type path of .exe or drag file into InputBox", 10, 35)
   Local $idBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 160 - 30, 75, 60, 20)

   GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

   ; Loop until the user exits.
   While 1
      Switch GUIGetMsg()
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
         Case $idBtn
            ExitLoop
      EndSwitch
   WEnd

I don't know what to do.

Mny Thanks in advance,

Medallyon,

The script is almost certainly halting at either the ProcessActive or WinWaitActive lines - add a timeout to them both so that the script proceeds with the loop until the process and GUI are present.

P.S. And seeing the name of the process/GUI, could I point you to the Forum rules if you have not already read them.

@Melba23

Thanks for your quick response.

Medallyon,

The script is almost certainly halting at either the ProcessActive or WinWaitActive lines - add a timeout to them both so that the script proceeds with the loop until the process and GUI are present.

I added a timeout to both of the lines but that did nothing.

P.S. And seeing the name of the process/GUI, could I point you to the Forum rules if you have not already read them.

Ayy, I know the rules. My script in no way or form messes with games or game integrity (as far as I know). It's a mere process of clicking Login so that I don't have to do it.

Why?

Because 

  1. I have too much time on my hands
  2. I take joy in creating things

This is the full code:

<snip>

If you have any more ideas I could try out, I welcome you to share them :)

Many thanks in advance,

~Medallyon

Medallyon,

Ayy, I know the rules.

Really? So how do you square this line:

Run("lol.launcher.exe")

with this prohibition?

Do not ask for help with AutoIt scripts, post links to, or start discussion topics on the following subjects:
[...]
•Launching, automation or script interaction with games or game servers, regardless of the game.

      Hey Guys,
      Maybe you can help me with something small.
      It is not terrible but it slows down my script and after a while even crash the script.

      First i explain what i have;
      I have a GUI with a lot of GUICtrlCreateInput controls, lets say 600 pieces.
      All the controls are hidden when the GUI is displayed, i have 3 buttons attached to 200 pieces each.
      When i press button-1 the first 200 controls are showed,
      When i press button-2 the first 200 controls are hidden and the next 200 controls are showed,
      etc, etc.
      This is working perfectly but after a while the GUI is getting slower and slower.
      After a while the controls aren't responding anymore and the script crashes.
      When i compile the script to 64-Bits version the speed is a lot better but you can still see the script slowing down each time i use the buttons.
      I think there has to be a buffer somewhere that is filling each time i show and hide the controls, but how can i clear that buffer without restarting the script?
      Deleting and re-creating the controls didn't help, deleting the entire gui (and controls) and re-creating it didn't help also.
      The only thing that is working is restarting the script.

      Thanks guys!

      PS: If you need a working example i can add it to this topic, just let me know. It is not rocket science, i just create the controls and show/hide them with a while loop and 3 buttons.

      ProxAllium
      ProxAllium is a GUI frontend to Tor, it aims to make the usage of Tor easier by directly exposing its SOCK5 proxy which can be used to access the Tor network. The GUI is designed to be simple and user-friendly and it has a few other features... namely:
      Fully portable - doesn't write outside its own directory Integrated with Tor via the controller interface and properly communicates with it Minimize to tray Option to start with Windows Interface to configure bridges if Tor is censored in your region Many customization options are available via the config.ini file Screenshots:
      The code is made with pure AutoIt, is fully open source and you are free to adapt it to your needs
      The GitHub repository hosts all the releases and code. As a bonus it has a somewhat sparsely documented Tor UDF which can be used to control Tor, the code also demonstrates the proper usage of my Process UDF which might be interesting if you want to deal with processes.
       
      As some of my friends know, I no longer use Windows as my main operating system. I switched to Linux a few months back as my primary operating system and haven't looked back since. Unfortunately that meant I could no longer use my own program due to it being Windows only... after a few months of playing around with C and making a basic program, I have decided to rewrite all of ProxAllium into C and make it cross-platform. Sadly this means that the AutoIt version of ProxAllium will not receive any major updates now.
      Let me know if this is something you guys would use, I used it daily with my IRC client to connect via Tor (to protect my I.P). I hope you enjoy using my program!

      Hello again 
      I need to click this Submit button, but it's in a lightbox and has no ID (i think) and I can't figure out a way to target it. _IEFormSubmit doesn't work.

       
      Thank you

      Hi, when I call a MsgBox function I can use a "$MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION" flag so it will be displayed "on the current active desktop, even if there is no user logged on to the computer.". That works just great. Is there a way to do the same to Autoit GUI Form so it will be visible on desktop even if running from system account and user is not logged?
