child windows

8 posts in this topic

have a main gui started with $intwindow from that window you hit a button and then another gui will open from this function. now the windows appear fine, but if i close the $delwindow the child, it will close but dosnt give functions back to the parent window, so to exit the parent i have to kill the autoit process. i have put a exitloop after the guidelete and before for closing the childwindow but then that just exits the hole script.

I tried to follow the example but not getting the results i thought it would.

$intWindow = GUICreate("script", 500, 180)

Func deltest()
    Global $name
    Global $check[20]
    Global $delini
    Global $x = 10
    Global $y = 30
    
;saveprinter()
    $name = IniReadSectionNames($file)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(48, "Error", "Error: Can not read save file." & @CR & @CR & "Error: 1084")
    Else
        $delwindow = GUICreate("Delete Printers", 400, 230, -1, -1, -1, -1, $intWindow)
        For $i = 1 To $name[0]
            $name1 = IniRead($file, $name[$i], "name", "null")
            $check[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($name1, 10, $y, 200, 10)
            $y = $y + 20
        Next
        $check[0] = $i - 1
        $DelLbl = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please check the printers you would like to delete.", 80, 10, 250, 20)
        $DelBtnAll = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete All", 100, 190, 70, 30)
        $DelBtnGo = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete Selected", 210, 190, 85, 30)
        $DelBtnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 305, 190, 70, 30)
    EndIf
    
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
        Select
        Case $msg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            If $msg[1] = $delwindow Then
                GUISwitch($delwindow)
                GUIDelete()
            ElseIf $msg[1] = $intWindow Then
                GUISwitch($intWindow)
                GUIDelete()
                Exit
            EndIf
        EndSelect
    WEnd
    Exit
EndFunc  ;==>deltest

i couldn't test this ... but it should work

Func deltest()
    Global $name
    Global $check[20]
    Global $delini
    Global $x = 10
    Global $y = 30
    
;saveprinter()
    $name = IniReadSectionNames($file)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(48, "Error", "Error: Can not read save file." & @CR & @CR & "Error: 1084")
    Else
        $delwindow = GUICreate("Delete Printers", 400, 230, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_POPUP,$WS_CAPTION), -1, $intWindow)
        For $i = 1 To $name[0]
            $name1 = IniRead($file, $name[$i], "name", "null")
            $check[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($name1, 10, $y, 200, 10)
            $y = $y + 20
        Next
        $check[0] = $i - 1
        $DelLbl = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please check the printers you would like to delete.", 80, 10, 250, 20)
        $DelBtnAll = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete All", 100, 190, 70, 30)
        $DelBtnGo = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete Selected", 210, 190, 85, 30)
        $DelBtnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 305, 190, 70, 30)
    EndIf
    
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    While 1
        $msg2 = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
        Case $msg2 = $DelBtnExit
            GUIDelete($delwindow)
            
        EndSelect
    WEnd
    Exit
EndFunc ;==>deltest

that didnt work ither..i striped almost all the code and just left the delete button that runs the other gui and the exits on the two...so its this code below. I would like to use the child windows, has to be easier in the long run, but i dont understand on why it wont close the child and not give functions back to the parent..i am baffled

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <Process.au3>
dim $intWindow
DisplayGUI()
Func DisplayGUI()
    
    Local $intWindow
    Local $intBtnExit
    Local $intMsg
    Local $intBtnDelete
    
    $intWindow = GUICreate("script", 500, 180)
    
    $intBtnDelete = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 100, 130, 70, 30)
    $intBtnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 385, 130, 70, 30)
    
    
    GUISetState()
    While 1
        $intMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $intMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $intMsg = $intBtnExit
                ExitLoop
            Case $intMsg = $intBtnDelete
                deltest()
        EndSelect
    WEnd
    GUIDelete($intWindow)
EndFunc  ;==>DisplayGUI



Func deltest()
    
;saveprinter()
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(48, "Error", "Error: Can not read save file." & @CR & @CR & "Error: 1084")
    Else
        $delwindow = GUICreate("Delete Printers", 400, 230, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_POPUP,$WS_CAPTION), -1, $intWindow)
        $DelBtnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 305, 190, 70, 30)
    EndIf
    
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    While 1
        $msg2 = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
        Case $msg2 = $DelBtnExit
            GUIDelete($delwindow)
            
        EndSelect
    WEnd
    Exit

    $intBtnDelete = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 100, 130, 70, 30)
    $intBtnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 385, 130, 70, 30)
    
    
    GUISetState()
    While 1
        $intMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $intMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $intMsg = $intBtnExit
                ExitLoop
            Case $intMsg = $intBtnDelete
                deltest()
        EndSelect
    WEnd
    GUIDelete($intWindow)
EndFunc;==>DisplayGUI



Func deltest()

I was looking for an example like this but what I am needing is for the parent to be always on top. In the case where there is a child window to the top most parent, the child would normally display on top of the parent but it is not happening. Could someone take a look and tell me what I am doing wrong.

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

#include <Process.au3>

dim $intWindow

DisplayGUI()

Func DisplayGUI()

Local $intWindow

Local $intBtnExit

Local $intMsg

Local $intBtnDelete

$X = BitOr($WS_POPUP, $WS_BORDER)

$intWindow = GUICreate("", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0, 0, $X, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)

$intBtnDelete = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 100, 130, 70, 30)

$intBtnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 385, 130, 70, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

$intMsg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $intMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $intMsg = $intBtnExit

ExitLoop

Case $intMsg = $intBtnDelete

deltest()

EndSelect

WEnd

GUIDelete($intWindow)

EndFunc;==>DisplayGUI

Func deltest()

;saveprinter()

If @error Then

MsgBox(48, "Error", "Error: Can not read save file." & @CR & @CR & "Error: 1084")

Else

$delwindow = GUICreate("Delete Printers", 400, 230, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_POPUP,$WS_CAPTION), -1, $intWindow)

$DelBtnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 305, 190, 70, 30)

EndIf

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 2

$msg2 = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg2 = $DelBtnExit

GUIDelete($delwindow)

Return

EndSelect

WEnd

Exit

Ok, I bolded that print, because, either your contradicting yourself, or I am exhausted! (Probably the latter) But I've read that thing 20 x's now!

I'm sure Valauter would have fixed more, but you'll see I did a few things... 1. Disabled the "Parent" GUI when calling the other 2. Gave the "Child" Top Most 3. Your "If/Else" statement had the While Loop outside the EndIf, if the error was thrown, then it would still do the "While loop". 4. Changed the "While 2" to "While 1" 5. Took out the Return "loan" value and replaced it with "ExitLoop" because you weren't returning a value. 6. Put the "Exit" outside the functions, so it would "Exit" when finished. and took out a few captions here and there.

(Oh, and used Tidy and [ code ] [ /code ] tags!!)

Hopefully after the 20th time of reading your post, I answered it right :P!!

Thanks for the rapid response. This is a prime example of what can happen when you mix alcohol :lmao: and 12 hours of nonstop development :P --- looks like this resolved my problem, really appreciate the help.
