Moving Combo To Next Option Automatically In AutoIt Gui

3 posts in this topic

I need to find a way to after x amount of seconds set the Autoit gui's ComboBox to next option available, and if it reaches the end of the list start back at beginning. This way I can cycle through checking if users are connected to a network. The combo is populated via a recursive file search that contains folders with each connected user's username. The ComboBox will contain something like " username\config " for every connected user. So I need to make so it cycles through constantly every X seconds I have the gui functioning, and all that I just can't get this one part to work.

TL:DR - How do I make so an AutoIt GUI ComboBox will cycle through all of its options every X seconds, and when it reaches bottom of options cycle back to top and continue the process again.

Thanks! I can't post any code due to NDA sorry...

rm4453,

How about something along these lines:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

; List of combo contents
Global $sList = "Alpha|Bravo|Charlie|Delta|Echo|Foxtrot"
;Convert to array
$aList = StringSplit($sList, "|")

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20)

; Fill the combo
_FillCombo()

GUISetState()

$nBegin = TimerInit()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    ; Every 2 seconds
    If TimerDiff($nBegin) > 2000 Then
        ; Refill the combo
        _FillCombo()
        ; Reset the timestamp
        $nBegin = TimerInit()
    EndIf

WEnd

Func _FillCombo()

    ; Index of array item to use as default
    Local Static $iIndex = 1

    ; Set combo data with selected item as default
    GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, "|" & $sList, $aList[$iIndex])

    ; increase index - and reset if required
    $iIndex += 1
    If $iIndex > $aList[0] Then
        $iIndex = 1
    EndIf

EndFunc

Thank You For Your Help.  I was just about to post that i figured it out...  Here is what I ended up using "at least what i can post of it"

 

$CurrentAccount = GUICtrlRead($AccountSelect)
    $acc = _GUICtrlComboBox_GetCurSel($AccountSelect)

    Sleep(50)
    $timer = $timer + 50
    If $go = 1 Then
        If $timer = $ConnectTimer * 60000 Then
            ProcessClose($pid)
            _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCurSel($AccountSelect, $acc + 1)
            If $acc = $accs + 1 Then
                _GUICtrlComboBox_SetCurSel($AccountSelect, 0)
                $acc = 0
            EndIf
            $timer = 0
            $copied = 0
        EndIf
    EndIf

    $update = $update + 1
    If $update = 25 Then
        _GUICtrlComboBox_SelectString($AccountSelect, $CurrentAccount)
        $update = 0
    EndIf

 *EDIT :
New Problem

How would I Filecopy something If I only know parts of the file name... I need to grab the User Session info in a .config and for each user the first part is unique... I know that the last part is .config every time that is it...

*EDIT:
NEW PROB SOLVED

I just set the filecopy to the dir with a *.config wildecard ... that should work for what I need due to it being only .config in the folder it would be copying from THANKS!

;=== CODE EXAMPLE FOR THOSE WHO COME LATER ON AND NEED THIS

FileCopy(C:\example\Folders\*.config, $sDir, "1")

;=== ENJOY!

      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
      Felix
