GuiCtrlRead issue?

Recommended Posts

Hi there :)

I'm writing a cript that need to validate users' credentials.

One simple thing is that if "User" & "Password" fileds are empty, a msgbox pops to ask for credentials.

So far, I have:

Func f_Login()

    Global $LoginfoGUI = GUICreate("Account Info", 300, 300, -1, -1)
    GUISetIcon ($resources & "login.ico")
    GUISetFont(8.5, 700, 0)
    GUICtrlCreatePic ($resources & "\SAClogo.jpg", 30, 10, 240, 80)
    GUISetBkColor ($Color_White)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("--- SEE UNINSTALLER ---", 85, 100, 150, 25)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please provide _a account:", 10, 130, 250, 25)
    GUICtrlSetColor(-1, $COLOR_RED)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("-Global ID:", 10, 170, 60, 30)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("-Password:", 10, 210, 70, 30)
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_exit")
    Global $GIDTechInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 90, 168, 80, 20)
    Global $PassInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 90, 205, 150, 20, $ES_PASSWORD)
    $submitBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Submit", 100, 245, 100, 25, $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_FOCUS)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "f_UninstallerMainGUI")
    If GUICtrlRead($PassInput) <> "" And Not BitAnd(GUICtrlGetState($submitBtn), $GUI_ENABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($submitBtn, $GUI_ENABLE)

Func f_UninstallerMainGUI()
If (GuiCtrlRead($GIDTechInput)) OR (GUICtrlRead($PassInput)) = "" Then
MsgBox (16, "ACCESS DENIED", "Please provide credentials")

But even if the fields are not empty, the msgbox pops up and the script no longer execute...

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> is declared.

I don't know what's happening here.

Can you please give a hand on this one?

thanks :)

Your comparison statement is wrong - you need to check the contents of both inputs separately:

If (GuiCtrlRead($GIDTechInput) = "") OR (GUICtrlRead($PassInput) = "") Then

If (GuiCtrlRead($GIDTechInput)) OR (GUICtrlRead($PassInput)) = "" Then

Your script evaluates the if and since it does read the input (GuiCtrlRead($GIDTechInput)) it returns true and the popup appears.

just use:

$GIDTechInput = GuiCtrlRead($GIDTechInput)
$PassInput = GuiCtrlRead($PassInput)
If $PassInput = "" OR $GIDTechInput = "" Then


If (GuiCtrlRead($GIDTechInput)) = "" OR (GUICtrlRead($PassInput)) = "" Then

sorry, haven't noticed Melba23 answered already...
