command prompt shows up at compiled code

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am working on a application with a GUI and command prompt in 1.

Currently my code looks this simple >

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx=y
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 437, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

But when I compile this and run the compiled version there is also a command prompt shown. But I don't want this.

Besides that, I also want it to be possible when I run my script from the command prompt, the program will give feedback in the command prompt where it was started from. With the setup above. This is possible with the ConsoleWrite command. 

Is it possible to hide the command prompt one way or another when I start the GUI? Or do I have to change my script?

I hope someone can help me.

Regards,
lrstndm

When I do that and I run the program from the command line it starts the GUI and does not post the ConsoleWrite to the command prompt. That is my problem.

You have 2 choices, run it as a GUI program, or run it as a CUI program with a command window, there's no way to hide the window at program start. Instead of using a console window for consolewrites, open a second GUI with an edit control in it and write the text into THAT instead of the console window that you don't need.

Try this:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx=n
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Process.au3>
#include <WinAPIProc.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

If _ProcessGetName(_WinAPI_GetParentProcess(@AutoItPID)) = "cmd.exe" Then ;hide CMD window when started not in CMD
    ConsoleWrite("Started from cmd box" & @CRLF)
Else
    $var = WinList()
    For $i = 1 To $var[0][0]
        If $var[$i][0] <> "" And BitAND(WinGetState($var[$i][1]), 2) Then
            If WinGetProcess($var[$i][0], "") = @AutoItPID Then
                WinSetState($var[$i][1], "", @SW_HIDE)
                ExitLoop
            EndIf
        EndIf
    Next
    MsgBox(0, "Info", "Started from windows explorer task", 10)
EndIf

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 437, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

      Hi all, 

      First, I want to give a huge shout-out to the community. I'm completely self-taught, and have never had to actually ask a question before because the forum is that good at answering questions and explaining things. However, I'm kind of stumped here, and I've been stuck on this problem for almost a full day.

      I'm working on a script to populate drafts of deeds at work. I have the main GUI and  a function (ctrl($n) and read()) for adding fields to find and data to replace it with to an array for later use with _word_docfindreplace. All of that works. However, due to the way I have the forms set up, I need to create additional fields and info based on the data that's there. Specifically, if there's only one buyer, I need to add the field [Buyer1&2] and the data in $aArray_Base for [Buyer 1]. I also need to add a field [Buyer 2] and have a blank data set in the next column over in the array, and I need to do the same for the Seller. To this end, the function parties() sets boolean variables $2buyers and $2sellers accordingly. Then, I have buyers() and sellers() to populate the data. 

      The problem that I'm running into is that each function works... when ONLY the buyer 1 name field is filled, and when ONLY the seller 1 field is filled.

      So if I fill Buyer 1 Name and save it, the data is populated correctly. But when I fill Buyer 1 and Seller 1 name, only the buyer 1 data populates correctly. Worse, when I fill several fields, neither populate correctly. I have no idea why this happens. I've added messageboxes to debug throughout the entire process and can't pinpoint what's causing the issue. The entire script is below. The function(s) in question are buyers() and sellers(). Only Sellers() has messageboxes throughout.

      Can someone help walk me through what might be causing this and help me find a solution? Thanks a ton in advance, and sorry for the wall of text.

      Hi Guys,
      I've been reading this post ...
      When I came accross the examples, non of them had what I was looking for.
      I basically want to "snapshot" my GUI's multiple tabs and send them into the pdf.
      A little nudge from you guys would be great.
      Im really stuck with this one, therefore I have no code.
      Lets discuss or point me in a right direction... thanks alot

      Good morning guys
      I was trying to not open another post, writing here my little issue, but seems that no one cares about, and so, I'm opening another post
      What I'm trying to do, is detect the event close sent from the virtual keyboard.
      Why?
      Because, I have an application which, when I set the focus on a textbox, if the virtual keyboard does not exist, then it is created, else, it's not created
      But, everytime I try to close the virtual keyboard, the focus remains on the textbox, and another $EN_FOCUS event it's launched and detected from my WM_COMMAND, and so, the virtual keyboard is opened again. 
      How can I solve this little "issue"? 
      I was trying to detect the event sent from the virtual keyboard, storing the handle of it in a variable, and setting:
      GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CloseVK", $hVirtualKeyboard) without any result.
      Can someone please help me?
      Thanks  
      EDIT:
      Here I'd like to see @Melba23, @water, @Danyfirex...

      I have 2 items (a field box and a bypass checkbox). every time the box is checked i need the field to become writable. unchecked is read only displaying some text.
      this is as far as i got as I am stuck at making it read/write toggle
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500) Global $hCombo = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20, BitOR($ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_READONLY)) GUICtrlSetBkColor($hCombo,0xe7e5e5) Global $cbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox ("", 40,50,10,20) GUICtrlSetState($cbox, $GUI_Unchecked) GUISetState() Global $sCurrCombo = "" While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $cbox If GUICtrlRead($cbox) <> $sCurrCombo Then $sCurrCombo = GUICtrlRead($cbox) GUICtrlSetStyle ($hCombo, $SS_LEFTNOWORDWRAP) GUICtrlSetBkColor($hCombo,0xFFFFFF) MsgBox(0, "Choice", "PLease enter the text") EndIf EndSwitch WEnd
