OOP Extender v0.3 Stable - Real object oriented programming with AutoIt


Recommended Posts

Seems to work fine.

Initial remarks/notes/questions:

I see there is a second script created, can your UDF exit the initial script as it does not seem to be needed?

Is there a way to suppress the Console window that appears in compiled script?

I see there is a second script created, can your UDF exit the initial script as it does not seem to be needed?

Is there a way to suppress the Console window that appears in compiled script?

Re: First question:

Not when the actual script uses the console. It needs to read the running std stream to work correctly. If it would exit immediately, other users would only be able see the console output when the generated script exits (i.e. not real-time). But,

Re: Sec. q.:

Yes, didn't think about that. I'll add an option for that. (Or rather auto-detect if the user's script even uses the console at all).

Is there anything that script authors would need to keep in mind when using this library? Any best practices that you recommend?

My goal is to keep this as indestructible (and fool-proof) as possible (partly because I use it myself). So instead of recommending best practices, I want to fix any issue you / others might come across. So if you find one - or want something new as a feature, use the issue tracker. If sometime in the distant future this enters v1.0+, I might create some in-depth pages on the wiki.

There are definitely a lot of bug fixes and features coming. :)

@Chimp messaged me some problems he had with the OOPE. This told me two things: I need to extend the tutorial and that there are some bigger bugs in this "UDF". I've documented the relevant issues in the tracker and the fixes will come in v0.3 (which in turn will be coming sooner than thought, within this week even).

So thanks Chimp for testing and reporting!

So... Why would one choose this over AutoItObject?

I only ever used this once in my life. The fact that you need an auxiliary binary file (the DLL) disqualifies it for me. This here is native AutoIt. Of course, your mileage may vary. I won't get into a discussion about it here :) .

You mean that optional file you don't actually use? If you don't want to use AO then fine, but don't lie about it.

... This AutoIt OOP Extender is very nice! I think that it can improve productivity and could simplify coding as well.
just played a bit with the example "06 Arrays of Objects.au3 so to beta testing it.
I've also modified it to make use of the "constructor with argument" way.
(Click on controls to write random chars in it, and use arrows to move the whole matrix)
here are 2 quick considerations:
1) if the listing is used letting it formatted as is, then it works, while if I Tidy the AutoIt listing, then it doesn't works anymore, arising an AutoIt error.
2) I've tried to use a call to a method of the class from within the constructor of the same class, but it doesn't work. (could be useful if this was allowed...).

See you later... I'm  keeping on playing still with this lovely toy ....

@Chimp,

1) if the listing is used letting it formatted as is, then it works, while if I Tidy the AutoIt listing, then it doesn't works anymore, arising an AutoIt error.

I don't use Tidy, but I'll test it to make sure it doesn't break. BTW: What was the error? Can you provide a self-contained example? If so, please use the bug tracker over at github.

2) I've tried to use a call to a method of the class from within the constructor of the same class, but it doesn't work. (could be useful if this was allowed...). 

 The runtime supports this, but there is no "nice" way to implement it in OOPE and keep it working with the current AutoIt stable. This feature would require Maps. As soon as Maps are a thing in the stable, this will be available.

I will answer every single PM, and you are free to ask anything anytime.

It seems that the "OOP Extender" does not like some embellishments to the listing introduced by Tidy,
The "decorations" of the listing that are not welcome are:

1) The comment added by Tidy to the EndFunc statement (within the #Region Class ... #EndRegion area)

Func _Player()
 
EndFunc   ;==>_Player

the ;==>_Player comment causes an arror like the following:

$aPlayers[$n] = __OOPE_InstantiateClass("int64 iX;int64 iY;int64 iHandle", "  

Error: Unterminated string.

2) the comment added by Tidy to the #EndRegion directive

#Region Class Player

#EndRegion Class Player

the Class Player part added by Tidy to the #EndRegion directive causes the following error on program exit:

Class Player
^ ERROR

Error: Unknown function name.

      Other than different methodologies, are there any differences between the two? Does one work out to be faster or more reliable than the other when deployed at scale? I'm trying out both UDFs, was curious which method is preferred by the community.
    • By kurtykurtyboy
      GuiFlatButton is a UDF to easily create regular buttons with different colors for background, foreground, border, hover, focus, etc..
      This started as an effort to change the background color of a button and eventually grew into a full UDF.
      If you've looked around forums for changing button background colors, you have probably noticed that each proposed workaround has its own set of issues/side-effects. The answers usually circle back to 'use ownerdrawn buttons' and 'not worth it'. Well, now it is possible for anyone to easily create ownerdrawn buttons - totally worth it!
      Some issues with other workarounds such as drawing with GDI+ or using a colored label as a 'button':
      Not 'real' buttons so you lose built-in functionality that windows gives to buttons Messy / inefficient code in the main while loop to check for mouse position Slow to respond to click, paint, etc... Having to deal with GUIRegisterMsg messages Not straight-forward to implement GuiFlatButton is not a workaround; it is a technique to respond to Windows' built-in owner-drawn button events.
      With minimal effort, we can now create true simple colored buttons.
      The idea is to create an owner-drawn button using GUICtrlCreateButton then subclass the GUI and controls to handle the button-specific events to paint it however we want.
      This UDF magically does all of this for us! No need to worry about event handling or main while loop logic.
       
      How to use
      It couldn't be any easier! Simply create a new button using the familiar syntax. This creates an ownerdrawn button with default colors.
      $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 78, 20, 120, 40) If you want to change the background and text colors:
      GuiFlatButton_SetBkColor(-1, 0x5555FF) GuiFlatButton_SetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF) Advanced Usage
      Set background/text/border all at once
      GuiFlatButton_SetColors(-1, 0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0x9999FF) Set ALL colors for ALL button states! (normal, focus, hover, selected)
      Local $aColorsEx = [0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, -2, 0x4444FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xAAAAFF, 0x6666FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xCCCCFF, 0x0000EE, 0xFFFFFF, 0x7777EE] GuiFlatButton_SetColorsEx(-1, $aColorsEx) Set default colors to apply to any future buttons
      ;set colors GuiFlatButton_SetDefaultColors(0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0x9999FF) ;create buttons $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 12, 20, 120, 40) $mybutton2 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 2", 143, 20, 120, 40) Set ALL color defaults
      ;set colors Local $aColorsEx = [0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, -2, 0x4444FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xAAAAFF, 0x6666FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xCCCCFF, 0x0000EE, 0xFFFFFF, 0x7777EE] GuiFlatButton_SetDefaultColorsEx($aColorsEx) ;create buttons $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 12, 20, 120, 40) $mybutton2 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 2", 143, 20, 120, 40)

      Always searching for the "final" solution to my zipping/unzipping needs, I started years ago using WinRar with AutoIT (don't ask me why...) and for the last 10 years I worked well with the _zip.UDF , a good solution using the embedded windows zipfldr.dll.
      But often I work with a lot of data (both multi gigabytes and/or 100K+ files) and I noticed the performance of the windows zip DLL are not so good, the problem is maybe worsened by the mono thread operation using AutoIT +  zipfldr.dll.
      SO my choice is 7zip (7ZA.exe)  also for licence (freeware also for business) reasons, and I wrote a small and simple UDF:

      Daily I use most of the time:
      _UNcompress_7za
      _COMpress_7za_7z
      so I'am almost done with these funcs....
      Also I made a quick and dirty benchmark on some real world data (for me at least) , comparing the windows DLL, the zip ULTRA by 7zip and the various 7zip levels.

      My choice is level 4 (time/size) but your mileage may vary...
      Also, extracting many thousands of little files from a 7z archive with 7zip is waaaay fast in respect to other solutions.

      This UDF can be used to draw at the Desktop Wallpaper (Windows 8+) with GDI+ without using files.
      The example runs with 60-120fps at my machine, so the speed is acceptable.
      When the script exits, the original wallpaper is restored.
      Have fun :).
      PS: The UDF uses the window between the background and the icons, so it could be used to add an own child window at the desktop. Just look at the begin of __Wallpaper_Startup ($hWorkerW).
       
      Example:

      Wondering if you can help a teacher out.  For the last few years of remote, hybrid, and in-person teaching I've been using an AutoHotKey script that creates an inking toolbar to be used during a PowerPoint presentation.  (https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=79163) The annotation tools available through Ppt are woefully inadequate, and, on my machine at least, jump around all over the place - sometimes on the bottom, sometimes on the left, sometimes on the right.  It's a scavenger hunt every single time.  The inking tool is always available, and recent updates allowed for the addition of lots more colors, which I used for modeling phenomena with students. One tragic day I arrived to school to find that my district IT dep't took away access to AutoHotKey.  No more tool bar. 
      I've been trying to resurrect some programming skills from a past life. I'm working through various tutorials and help files, with the goal of recreating the toolbar in AutoIt.  I'm really needing some help to move things along though.  I've been going through your PowerPoint UDF and all of your functions seem to just relate to editing the slides. Can you point me in the direction of how to create a toolbar that accesses the annotation tools that are available during the slideshow itself?
