Auto Generate Buttons

4 posts in this topic

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

      Hello,
      my question is based on topic about Nvda Screen reader development atThis Link
      Autoit GUI is totaly nice for blind users, because it's controls are mostly standart.
      But in cooperation with Screen Readers this guis are much slower than other guis.
      Do you have any idea about reason of this behaviour?
      Thanks a lot for any answer.

      I've tried to wrap my head around it but just can't imagine how to embed 2 IE browsers in the same GUI.
      Here's what I'm doing so far.
       
      #include <GuiConstantsEx.au3> #include <windowsconstants.au3> #include <IE.au3> Global $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() ; Create a simple GUI for our output Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Embedded Web control Test", 1280, 580, (@DesktopWidth - 1280) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 580) / 2, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX)) Global $GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 40, 1100, 500) _IENavigate($oIE, "http://xxxxxxxxxx.com") Global $o_doc = _IEDocGetObj($oIE) $o_doc.DocumentElement.ScrollTop = 140 $o_doc.DocumentElement.ScrollLeft = 170 GUISetState() While GUIGetMsg() <> -3 WEnd

      Hi guys,
      So I am facing an issue with my Listview control flickering like crazy when using the Modern GUI UDF.
      I understand that the reson is because Listviews do not play nice with the $WS_EX_COMPOSITED extended style which is necessary to prevent the rest of the GUI components flickering on resizing.
      I am looking for suggestions on how I can overcome the flickering issue without having to remove the Listview header (as I need the header to allow column resizing and sorting).
      The reproducer is here and the lightly modified Modern GUI UDF is attached as a zip (I added $WS_CLIPCHILDREN and $WS_EX_COMPOSITED to the _Metro_CreateGUI() function in order to stop flickering of other controls like buttons/labels/toggles etc).
      ;!Highly recommended for improved overall performance and responsiveness of the GUI effects etc.! (after compiling): #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y #Au3Stripper_Parameters=/so /rm /pe ;Required if you want High DPI scaling enabled. (Also requries _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling()) #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=y #include-once #NoTrayIcon #include "MetroGUI-UDF\MetroGUI_UDF.au3" #include <GuiListView.au3> $gui = _Metro_CreateGUI("example", 800, 600, -1, -1, True) ;Add/create control buttons to the GUI $Control_Buttons = _Metro_AddControlButtons(True, True, True, True, False) ;CloseBtn = True, MaximizeBtn = True, MinimizeBtn = True, FullscreenBtn = True, MenuBtn = True ;Set variables for the handles of the GUI-Control buttons. (Above function always returns an array this size and in this order, no matter which buttons are selected. $GUI_CLOSE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[0] $GUI_MAXIMIZE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[1] $GUI_RESTORE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[2] $GUI_MINIMIZE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[3] $GUI_FULLSCREEN_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[4] $GUI_FSRestore_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[5] ;====================================================================================================================================================================== $Button1 = _Metro_CreateButtonEx("Add new item(s)", 20, 20, 130, 50) $Button2 = _Metro_CreateButtonEx("Edit item(s)", 170, 20, 130, 50) $ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 0, 86, 800, 400, BitOR($LVS_REPORT, $LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE) _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($ListView2, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES, $LVS_EX_SUBITEMIMAGES, $LVS_EX_FLATSB)) For $i = 0 to 8 _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($ListView2, "col " &$i) Next _GUICtrlListView_SetBkColor($ListView2, 0xF3F3F3) _GUICtrlListView_SetTextBkColor($ListView2, 0xF3F3F3) ;Set resizing options for the controls so they don't change in size or position.

GUICtrlSetResizing($Button1, 768 + 2 + 32) GUICtrlSetResizing($Button2, 768 + 2 + 32) GUICtrlSetResizing($ListView2, 102) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 _Metro_HoverCheck_Loop($gui) ;This hover check has to be added to the main While loop, otherwise the hover effects won't work. $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg ;=========================================Control-Buttons=========================================== Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $GUI_CLOSE_BUTTON _Metro_GUIDelete($gui) ;Delete GUI/release resources, make sure you use this when working with multiple GUIs! Exit Case $GUI_MAXIMIZE_BUTTON GUISetState(@SW_MAXIMIZE) Case $GUI_RESTORE_BUTTON GUISetState(@SW_RESTORE) Case $GUI_MINIMIZE_BUTTON GUISetState(@SW_MINIMIZE) Case $GUI_FULLSCREEN_BUTTON, $GUI_FSRestore_BUTTON _Metro_FullscreenToggle($gui, $Control_Buttons) EndSwitch WEnd Any suggestions would be greately appreciated.

      Good morning community!
      I was working on a script which read the content of a .ini file to retrieve the file that has to open, and, based on the value of a second key stored in the .ini file, set the window on top, minimized or maximized...
      I did something like this, but seems to not work properly...
      Could anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thank you
