Auto Generate Buttons

Recommended Posts

digitalexpl0it

Hello,

 

I wanted to know if it was possible to auto-generate buttons from a ini file. The thought was to read the ini and for each value create a button for it. Now I would like to have the buttons places from left to right then after lets say 5 buttons have created move down to the next row and start again with lets say a limit of 8 rows.

INI example:

[Buttons]
Button1Text=Test 1
Button1Command=http://google.com
Button2Text=Test 2
Button2Command=cmd.exe

Any help would be appreciated

This example automatically generates buttons based on the "Buttons" section of an "ini" file.

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIFiles.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
; Referenced  https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/178272-is-this-done-correctly/?do=findComment&comment=1279329

Local $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & "\Test.ini"
Local $sSection = "Buttons"
Local $aArray = IniReadSection($sFilePath, $sSection)
_ArrayDelete($aArray, 0)
;_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

Local $iIndex
Local $iTotButtons = UBound($aArray)
Local $iNumPerRow = 5
Local $iButWidth = 100
Local $iButDepth = 30
Local $aButiD[$iTotButtons]
Local $hGUI = GUICreate('Buttons From "' & $sFilePath & '"', 10 + ($iButWidth + 10) * $iNumPerRow, _
                                                             10 + Ceiling($iTotButtons / $iNumPerRow) * ($iButDepth + 10), -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
For $i = 0 To $iTotButtons - 1
    ; $x = $iXBorder + (($iRectWidth + $iSpacing) * Mod($i, $iNumCols))
    $x = 10 + (($iButWidth + 10) * Mod($i, $iNumPerRow))

    ; $y = $iYBorder + (($iRectDepth + $iSpacing) * Int($i / $iNumCols))
    $y = 10 + (($iButDepth + 10) * Int($i / $iNumPerRow))

    $aButiD[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton($aArray[$i][0], $x, $y, $iButWidth, $iButDepth) ;, $BS_NOTIFY)
Next

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $aButiD[0] To $aButiD[$iTotButtons - 1]
            $iIndex = ($msg - $aButiD[0])
            If StringRight($aArray[$iIndex][0], 7) = "Command" Then ; Something to distinguish an executable value from ini file.
                ShellExecute($aArray[$iIndex][1]) ; Buttons with the button's text ending in "Command".
            Else
                MsgBox(0, $aArray[$iIndex][0], "Value: " & $aArray[$iIndex][1], 2)
            EndIf
            $msg = ""
    EndSwitch
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3


The Test.ini file.

[Buttons]
Button1Text=Test 1
Button1Command=http://google.com
Button2Text=Test 2
Button2Command=cmd.exe
Button3Text=Test 3
Button3Command=https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/178272-is-this-done-correctly/?do=findComment&comment=1279329
Button4Text=Test 4
Button4Command=Notepad.exe
Button5Text=Test 5
Button5Command=Calc.exe

      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

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.
      #Region options, includes Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #EndRegion options, includes Global Const $nCols = 2, $nRows = 6, $nSpacer = 10, $nBtnWidth = 150, $nBtnHeight = 30 Global $xName = 0, $xID = 0 Global $nGUIWidth = ($nCols * $nBtnWidth) + (($nCols + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $nGUIHeight = ($nRows * $nBtnHeight) + (($nRows + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $hMainGUI = GUICreate("Calculated GUI", $nGUIWidth, $nGUIHeight, -1, -1) For $xRows = 1 to $nRows ;in this arrangement, tabbing is left to right, then next row For $xCols = 1 to $nCols ;reverse the order of this line with the prior line for top to bottom tabbing, then next col $xName += 1 $xID += 1 Global $Dummy = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $xName, _ ($nBtnWidth * ($xCols - 1)) + (($xCols - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ ($nBtnHeight* ($xRows - 1)) + (($xRows - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ $nBtnWidth, _ $nBtnHeight) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($xID+2, "Handler") Next Next GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CloseApp") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func CloseApp() Exit EndFunc Func Handler() MsgBox(0,0,"Button " & @GUI_CtrlId - 2) EndFunc
