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

      Hello.
      I've got a problem. I want to center my input vertically, but I don't have any single idea how to do it.
      There's my example code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> $GUI = GUICreate("Gui", 237, 93, 192, 124) $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Center vertically isn't correct", 16, 16, 201, 62) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd What could I do?
      Greetings, "genotypek".

      Hi,
      working on my first autoit GUI an got some questions.
      Is it possible to get an action on the first menu level
      For example:
      $StartMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Datei") ... while 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $StartMenu MsgBox(0, "Test", "yes this works") (currently this does not work for me)
      Currently I have to create GUICtrlCreateMenuItem 's this will leed to a result
       
      And a 2nd question. I saw many time this:
      $StartMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&Datei") For what does I need the ampersand? If I leave out the & nothing seems to change
       
      Thank you very much in advance

      Hey Guys,
      I am Struggling with a issue that i cannot seem to fix.
      I hope that you guys can help me with this.
      I have a GUI with some text attributes, for all i use the following code;
      $Label_ts_Header = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Manual Adress", 60, 10, 500, 50) GUICtrlSetBkColor($Label_ts_Header, $COLOR_WHITE) GUICtrlSetFont ($Label_ts_Header, 26, 800, 0, "Calibri") This is all working like it should, but when i activate the GUI on another pc the text size is bigger and the GUI size is somewhat smaller.
      The problem is that it isn't on all computers, i can't seem to find the problem,..
      If i make it fit on one pc it is to small on another or to big,..
      What am i doing wrong?
       
      Is there some kind of attribute that i need to add to the top of my script to normalize text sizes in the script?
       
      Thanks!
       
      EDIT: Found the problem guys, some computers has changed the text size to 125% // Can i force 100% for my GUI somehow ?
       
      EDIT2: Fixed it guys! // I used the Function Below to get the DPI Setting and used that to determine the text size (example below)
       
      Func _GDIPlus_GraphicsGetDPIRatio($iDPIDef = 96) _GDIPlus_Startup() Local $hGfx = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND(0) If @error Then Return SetError(1, @extended, 0) Local $aResult #forcedef $__g_hGDIPDll, $ghGDIPDll $aResult = DllCall($__g_hGDIPDll, "int", "GdipGetDpiX", "handle", $hGfx, "float*", 0) If @error Then Return SetError(2, @extended, 0) Local $iDPI = $aResult[2] Local $aresults[2] = [$iDPIDef / $iDPI, $iDPI / $iDPIDef] _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGfx) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() Return $aresults EndFunc ;==>_GDIPlus_GraphicsGetDPIRatio

      Hey everyone, I'm curious if there is a way to incorporate a checkbox with a combo GUICtrl?
      so for instance I have a GUI that has a bunch of checkboxes that allow me to open certain programs as needed.  (this is just some parsing of my code, sorry, noob here and not sure what the preferred method of displaying code is, please enlighten me)

          $L0742 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("L07 4.2", 110, 320, 100)
          $L07502 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("L07 5.0.2", 110, 350, 100)
          $GenComm = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("GenComm", 110, 380, 100)
          $Templates = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Templates", 110, 410, 100)
          $MCT = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("MCT", 110, 440, 100)
          $Desktop_Shortcuts = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Desktop Shortcuts by Tester", 110, 470, 200)
       
      ...
      Case $msg = $RunBtn
                  RunPrograms()
       
      ...
      Func RunPrograms()

          if GUICtrlRead($L0742) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("C:\Program Files\Varian\Paxscan\L07 Rel4.2\viva\viva.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($L07502) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("C:\Program Files\Varian\Paxscan\L07 Rel5\viva\viva.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($GenComm) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("\\Fpanelfs1\FPShared\Desktop_Shortcuts_by_Tester\Matt\CPI Generator\CPI Generator Windows 7 64 Bit\GenComm\GenComm.NET.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($Templates) = $GUI_CHECKED then ShellExecute("\\Fpanelfs1\FPProjects\Documentation Controlled\Test_Templates")
          if GUICtrlRead($MCT) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("\\Fpanelfs1\FPProjects\Documentation Controlled\Manufacturing Software\MCT\MCT.exe","")
          if GUICtrlRead($Desktop_Shortcuts) = $GUI_CHECKED then ShellExecute("\\Fpanelfs1\fpshared\Desktop_Shortcuts_by_Tester")
      EndFunc
       
      so i click some checkboxes, and hit a run button and the programs which are checked run, great.
      BUT i want to add a bunch of options under one checkbox. A combo that will list a bunch of versions of a program that can be opened. something like this... but I want that program to be part of a checkbox
      $ViVAComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("L01 Rel 13", 110, 320, 100)
      GUICtrlSetData($ViVAComboBox, "L04|L05|L07 Rel 4.2|L07 Rel 5.0.2|L09", "L07 Rel 4.2")
       
      is this possible? is there another GUICtrl that does this better that i am not aware of?
