Best way to play little video inside a Gui

6 posts in this topic

I would like to insert a video player inside the gui Autoit, preferably one with a free license such as Media Player Classic or VLC, I saw in the forum but I found examples of many years ago.

Some examples links or advice would be much help :lol:

I know to do so with the built in Media Player is simple:

$WMPLayer = ObjCreate("WMPlayer.OCX")
$WMPLayer.openPlayer("C:\Users\JLogan3o13\Desktop\720p.mp4")

For VLC specifically I would suggest looking at the UDF:

Never mind - I just walked through the follow-ups to the linked VLC UDF post and found the kind of information I was looking for. Apologies for my laziness. :>

 

Do you happen to know if the VLC UDF supports streaming (vs. file playback)?

We have an AutoIt app that writes some data definitions to a JavaScript file, and then launches a web browser with an HTML file that includes the dynamic .js file. The HTML file displays a grid (table) of VLC streaming players, each of which is processing a separate stream. It would be nice to eliminate the web browser and HTML/JS/CSS code by creating the grid of VLC stream players in an AutoIt GUI.

@tremolux66, sounds interesting,
could you post an example of that scipt here?
Thanks


small minds discuss people average minds discuss events great minds discuss ideas.... and use AutoIt....

@Chimp: Are you interested in the AutoIt script or the HTML/JavaScript?

The AutoIt  script is pretty straightforward: it just reads a .ini file, retrieves the key/values that have video stream info, and writes them to a JavaScript file as data declarations w/initializers. Then it calls Run() w/the browser path, browser options, and HTML file path as the command arguments and exits. Not much to see there.

If you're interested in the HTML & JavaScript, I'll see what I can do; it's since been rewritten to move the CSS and nearly all the JavaScript to external files. I may be able to dig up an old version and post a (filtered) copy of that.

      Hi I have jus started using auto-it . Please correct me if I'm wrong.
      I need to read data from an input in text box and search in excel file and return value in next column of matched cell on GUI.
      I have written below code but i cannot use variable which has data stored. it works only when search string is hard coded.
      Please help out.
       
      Example()
      Func Example()
      Local $GuiMain = GUICreate("EXCEL TEST", 399, 180) ;creates main GUI
      ;~ Local $idOK = GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Close")
      Local $iWidthCell = 70
      Local $idLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("PART NUMBER", 10, 30, $iWidthCell,50)
      Local $RUN_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 70, 70, 85, 25)
      Local $Input_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("PART NUMBER", 100, 20, 120, 20)
      Local $sMenutext = GUICtrlRead($Input_1, 1)
      GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GuiMain)

          While 1
          $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
          Select
              Case $MSG = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

              Case $MSG = $RUN_1
                  Local $oAppl = _Excel_Open()

      Local $sFilePath1 = "D:\Anu_WorkFolder\Components.xlsx"
      Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oAppl, $sFilePath1, Default, Default, True)

      Hello.
      Drag option works only on parent window but as we can see on the parent gui is showed up child gui (on the right side with the color).
      Desired action is when we want to drag whole program we can also drag child gui and child gui will drag with parent gui.
      How to do this?
       
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NCHITTEST, "_NCHITTEST") $hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1) $cButton_0 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child 0", 10, 10, 80, 30) $cButton_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child 1", 10, 50, 80, 30) $cButton_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child 2", 10, 90, 80, 30) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) ; guis Global $hChild_[3] Global $countGUI = UBound($hChild_) - 1 ;MsgBox("","",$countGUI) ; licznik dla GUI Global $gui = 0 $hChild_[0] = GUICreate("Child 0", 350, 300, 150, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI) GUISetBkColor(0xFF0000) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild_[0]) $hChild_[1] = GUICreate("Child 1", 350, 300, 150, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI) GUISetBkColor(0x00FF00) GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[1]) $hChild_[2] = GUICreate("Child 2", 350, 300, 150, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI) GUISetBkColor(0x0000FF) GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[2]) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $cButton_0 _All_Hide() GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild_[0]) $gui = 0 Case $cButton_1 _All_Hide() GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild_[1]) $gui = 1 Case $cButton_2 _All_Hide() GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild_[2]) $gui = 2 EndSwitch WEnd Func _All_Hide() GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[0]) GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[1]) GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[2]) EndFunc Func _NCHITTEST($hWnd, $uMsg, $wParam, $lParam) If $hWnd = $hGUI Then Local $aPos = WinGetPos($hWnd) If Abs(BitAND(BitShift($lParam, 16),0xFFFF)- $aPos[1]) < 500 Then Return $HTCAPTION EndIf Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc

      Hello,
       
      I have a script which uses a GUI with two buttons. It gets shown and hidden., and pressing the buttons (including their hotkeys) highlights the button, making you able to press enter the next time.
      However, I don't want that.
       
      I've tried using WinActivate() to make enter do things on another program, but the enter is still tied to the AutoIT GUI (which still has the button highlighted).
       
      Here's the important part of my code:
      $MY_GUI = GUICreate("Check.exe", 400, 300, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 200), -500) WinSetOnTop($MY_GUI, "", 1) ;Keeps the window on the top. $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pass (Ctrl+P)", 40, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fail (Ctrl+F)", 240, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $GUIText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 10, 360, 230) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 13, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUICtrlSetData($GUIText, Execute($stepMessage[$step])) $showGUI = "True" GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While($showGUI = "True") $buttonPressed = GUIGetMsg() Switch $buttonPressed Case $Button1 ;Pass $pass = "True" $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) Case $Button2 ;Fail $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) While($message = "") $message = InputBox("Check.exe", "Please enter the reason the step failed." & @CRLF, "", "", 300, 200, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 150), -400) WEnd Return $message EndSwitch WEnd Local $pass = "False" ;Whether "Pass" or "Fail" was pressed. Local $failLog = xxxfunc($pass) ;Returns a message to log if the step failed. ##THIS CALLS THE CODE SNIPPET ABOVE## FileWrite($file, _Now() & ": Step " & $step & getStatus($pass) & "and took " & Ceiling(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000) & " seconds." & @CRLF) If($failLog <> "") Then FileWrite($file, "Logged comment: " & $failLog & @CRLF) EndIf WinActivate("[TITLE:ProgramName]") ;Hotkeys: HotKeySet("^{p}", "pressPass") HotKeySet("^{f}", "pressFail") Func pressPass() $buttonPressed = $Button1 EndFunc Func pressFail() $buttonPressed = $Button2 EndFunc  
      The GUI's button/hotkey pressing works correctly.
      The same WinActivate code works in another script of mine.
      Together, WinActivate is not take "Active" away from the GUI's last-pressed button. How do I fix this?
       
      Thank you in advance.

      Dear AutoIT Community.
      I am currently working on a program that will display lots of images in a scroll down GUI.
      I create the GUI based on the number of images, which works fine.
      But all images I place using GuiCtrlCreatePic above a threshold of around 32000 pixels (cant say exactly) are placed at negative locations and finally will reach 0 again
      and will then populate on top of the images placed there before.
      For $i = 1 To $Images[0] ; Get picture dimensions $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ImgRep & $Images[$i]) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) ; Resize & place images in GUI $Pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic($ImgRep & $Images[$i], $Spacer, Round($yPos, 0), $MaxImgWidth, $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX)) $yPos = $yPos + $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX) + $Spacer $log = $log & "|" & $yPos $currentlut = $Images[1] Next I have found a limit at 32767 pixels for some GUI elements when googling around.
      Can someone tell me how to circumvent that?
      thanks!
      cheers
