Slider & Report "Help!"

Recommended Posts


I am attempting to use sliders to create a Q&A report that outputs a log/txt  file on a PC/Server...at least I got that to work.

I have the sliders set, however I cannot get the number range to show on the GUI correctly. Could use some guidance here.

When I output the value of each slider into a log file, the values are really goofed. Could use some more guidance here too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am a noob, take pity. I have self abused already!

Maybe something like this. 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>


Func test()
    Local $slider, $button, $label, $currentNum, $holdNum

    GUICreate("slider", 220, 300, 100, 200)
    $slider = GUICtrlCreateSlider(10, 10, 200, 20)
    GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 10, 0);|Sets the min / Max
    $label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("" & $currentNum, 75, 100, 100, 20) ;|Label displays current slider num
    GUICtrlSetData($slider, 0) ;|Begin at 0

    While 1
        $currentNum = GUICtrlRead($slider);
        If $currentNum <> $holdNum Then
            GUICtrlSetData($label, $currentNum)
            $holdNum = $currentNum
EndFunc   ;==>test

What do you mean by goofed? Using GUICtrlRead on the slider should give the value selected.

The label should show the range "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10" and align accordingly to the output file.

The extra input will not go unused. I just have to workout a realtime refresh...or close to it.

Here is the PowerPoint.au3

It is a bit dated, but works for what I needed of it.

Can still be found on the autoit site.

The location of the Next prevented the numbers from appearing under the sliders.

I have made several modifications that cleaned up a few issues, however I'm still having a problem with getting the slider numbers to translate into the log file.

Any additional ideas?

      Hi guys
      I have a question about the slider  controle
      There is a problem with screen readers, wen we Using a screen reader We usually move between GUI controls using the tab key.
      But when you create a slider , beside to it there are  buttons and check boxes or any other controls, When I move between the GUI controls using the tab key I can not find the slider.
      But if it were alone in the window, I would find it normally.
      Is there a solution to Solve this problem please?
      This is the code i tried
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
      #include <WindowsConstants.au3>
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
      #include <SliderConstants.au3>
      Func main()
          GUICreate("slider", 200, 200, -1, -1)
      GUICtrlCreateGroup("slider", 10, 10, 240, 50)
          Local $idSlider1 = GUICtrlCreateSlider(50, 30, 200, 20, BitOr($TBS_DOWNISLEFT, $TBS_BOTH))
          GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 100, 0)
          Local $idButton = GUICtrlCreatebutton("Value?", 75, 70, 70, 20)
          GUICtrlSetData($idSlider1, 10)
      while 1
      switch GUIGetMsg()
      case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
      case $idButton
                  MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "slider1", GUICtrlRead($idSlider1))

      Hi, I am stuck on a GUI problem and would like your help to solve it.
      I am trying to automate the SoundWire Server app to match my current system volume level while it is minimized to the notification area (so no clicking or stealing focus),
      I can already get the handle and alter the tracker position by sending a WM_SETPOS message, but somehow the actual volume is not changed: I think I need to do something else to trigger the event handler for the value change and propagate it correctly.
      This is the control summary from Au3 info:
      >>>> Window <<<< Title: SoundWire Server Class: #32770 Position: 441, 218 Size: 566, 429 Style: 0x94CA00C4 ExStyle: 0x00050101 Handle: 0x0000000000510E12 >>>> Control <<<< Class: msctls_trackbar32 Instance: 4 ClassnameNN: msctls_trackbar324 Name: Advanced (Class): [CLASS:msctls_trackbar32; INSTANCE:4] ID: 6002 Text: Position: 51, 222 Size: 47, 126 ControlClick Coords: 1, 101 Style: 0x5001000A ExStyle: 0x00000000 Handle: 0x00000000001234C8 >>>> Mouse <<<< Position: 496, 567 Cursor ID: 2 Color: 0xF0F0F0 >>>> StatusBar <<<< >>>> ToolsBar <<<< >>>> Visible Text <<<< Default multimedia device Tray on Start Static Server Address: Status: Connected to B9K~OP3 Audio Output Audio Input Level Record to File Input Select: 44.1 kHz Minimize to Master Volume Mute >>>> Hidden Text <<<< Slider2 Mute OK Cancel Label Balance Slider1 Volume Front L/R Fr C/LFE Side L/R Back L/R
      I am attaching the program in question so you don't have to install it (i don't know if it is portable enough, tough): 

      SoundWire Server_files.zip

      Thanks in advance and I hope I didn't post in the wrong section

      I would like to use a WM_NOTIFY function to manage a slider thumb position change, according this MSN trackbar link TRBN_THUMBPOSCHANGING .
      Does somebody know why the notification code "TRBN_THUMBPOSCHANGING" for the slider control seems ignored in "WindowsConstants.au3" include file ?
      Searching in AutoIt or MSN forum , or googling this code, I don't succeed to catch any code info !!! Is it obsolete ?

      This UDF can be used to create a slider with an imagebackground and an image to move.
      If you like it, please leave me a comment, also if you have any suggestions to make it better or if you found bugs.
      Edit: Its now possible to set the value of the Slider (__GDIPlusSlider_set($Slider,$value))
