[GUI] Drag&Drop files -> Get filename

8 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I got a quick question regarding Drag&Drop with GUIs. I made a little script that does something with files and I need a way to get the name/path of the file when I drag&drop it into the GUI. Is there a quick way to do this?

Tyvm in advance!

Thanks this helped alot.

My form looks like this now:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
;#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <INet.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("DVD Videosoft Updater", 306, 110, 390, 222)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
$status = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Nothing to do right now", 136, 8, 152, 17)
GUICtrlSetState($status, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
$useOwnINI = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Use own links.ini", 8, 8, 97, 17)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
$download_start = GUICtrlCreateButton("Download", 8, 32, 107, 25)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
$progressbar = GUICtrlCreateProgress(136, 32, 150, 25)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Drag && Drop!", 80, 80, 145, 17, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GUI_EVENT_DROPPED
            Global $droppedfile = @GUI_DragFile
            MsgBox(0,"",$droppedfile)
    EndSwitch
 WEnd

I still can't drop files in there - the "no dop" mouse-icon appears every time i try to drop a file...

Any idea what could be the reason for this?

Thanks!

FrankSchneidewind,

Looks as if you forgot a vital style:

$Form1 = GUICreate(... $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)

FrankSchneidewind,

I bet you put it in the "normal style" rather than the "extended style" position - this is how it should look:

$Form1 = GUICreate("DVD Videosoft Updater", 306, 110, 390, 222, Default, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)

      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

      Hello
       
      Is there anyway to store word documents in Autoit GUI? For example I have a instruction sheet that I want to bundle up with the exe.

      So a user simply clicks the icon and the stored document will launch  (Something like how you can add objects like excel sheets in word documents )

      (I Know we can launch word files from script directory)

      Not sure if this is possible or if someone has already tackled this. Is it possible to embed PowerShell into a GUI? Autoit is great for quick function but sometime I need to run a command thru PowerShell. It be great to have PowerShell console embedded into the gui.
