add/remove from txt file inside GUI

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey guys

I need help to get further with this script :)

 

Test.txt contains lines like this:

_______________

Line1
Line2
Line3

_______________

I have managed to view the content of a txt file in the left side of a GUI like this:

#Include <File.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>



Global $file = FileRead("Test.txt")


GUICreate("", 800, 800, 192, 124)
$control = GUICtrlCreateEdit($file, 0, 0, 400, 800, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL + $ES_READONLY)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "@Arial Unicode MS")
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetState($control, $GUI_FOCUS) ;Makes sure that text is not highlighted by default
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

 

Okay so is it possible to make each line become a clickable item?
Say I want to delete Line2, then I highlight it and click a "remove" button.

Also an "add" button would be needed to add new lines

On Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE the changes should be saved to Test.txt (Or with a save button)

 

Is this possible?

I hope you can help me :-)

david1337,

Use a ListView rather than an Edit and my GUIListViewEx UDF will allow you to delete and add lines easily. Give it a try and see how you get on - the link is in my sig.

Hi Melba

Thanks for you reply!

How do I make the list vertical, with one item for each line, like I did with GUICtrlCreateEdit? Can't seem to figure this out :S

david1337,

Split the text to be read into an array (FileReadToArray or StringSplit) and then add each element (line) to the ListView using GUICtrlCreateListViewItem. The UDF will then let you add/delete lines very easily.

M23

Edit: A simple example:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <GUIListViewEx.au3>

; Simulate reading the file into an array
Global $aLines = ["Line1", "Line2", "Line3"]

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

$cLV = GUICtrlCreateListView(" ", 10, 10, 300, 300)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cLV, 0, 290)

$cInsert = GUICtrlCreateButton("Insert Line", 400, 10, 80, 30)
$cDelete = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete Line", 400, 50, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

; Intialise ListView
$iLV_Index = _GUIListViewEx_Init($cLV)
; Insert lines
_GUIListViewEx_Insert($aLines, True)
; Register required messages
_GUIListViewEx_MsgRegister(True, False, False, False)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cInsert
            _GUIListViewEx_Insert("New line")
        Case $cDelete
            _GUIListViewEx_Delete()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Hi Melba

Thank you, that worked like a charm.

The only thing I have problems with now is to save the file with the edited content.

My guess would be something like using a _GUIListViewEx_ReturnArray to view the state of the array, edited or not. (In the below script I try to show this in a msgbox)
Then use a filewrite with the new content.

Only problem is, I can't get the _GUIListViewEx_ReturnArray to show the valid data - I tried following your GUIListViewEx Guide, and I think that I'm close :)

 

 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIListViewEx.au3>


Global $FileToArray = FileReadToArray("test.txt")


$hGUI = GUICreate("Test Text File", 800, 800)

$cLV = GUICtrlCreateListView("[Headline]", 10, 10, 400, 775)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 800, 0, "@Arial Unicode MS")
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cLV, 0, 378)

$cInsert = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add User", 425, 10, 80, 30)
$cDelete = GUICtrlCreateButton("Remove User", 425, 50, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

; Intialise ListView
$iLV_Index = _GUIListViewEx_Init($cLV)
; Insert lines
_GUIListViewEx_Insert($FileToArray, True)
; Register required messages
_GUIListViewEx_MsgRegister(True, False, False, False)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

;An attemp to show the content of the Array after I edited it
$updated = _GUIListViewEx_ReturnArray
MsgBox(0,"",$updated)

            Exit

        Case $cInsert
            _GUIListViewEx_Insert("New line")
        Case $cDelete
            _GUIListViewEx_Delete()
    EndSwitch
 WEnd

david1337,

Using MsgBox to display an array? This works better:

Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

            $aContent = _GUIListViewEx_ReturnArray($iLV_Index)
            _ArrayDisplay($aContent, "", Default, 8)

            Exit

Uhm just ignore that I used MsgBox :) Had tried so many things that I mixed up my array with a normal list.

Anyway, thanks for your help! I got it working now.
GUIListViewEx is an indispensable UDF!

 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIListViewEx.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Global $File = "test.txt"
Global $FileToArray = FileReadToArray("test.txt")


$hGUI = GUICreate("Test Text File", 800, 800)

$cLV = GUICtrlCreateListView("[Headline]", 10, 10, 400, 775)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 800, 0, "@Arial Unicode MS")
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cLV, 0, 378)

$cInsert = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add Item", 425, 10, 80, 30)
$cDelete = GUICtrlCreateButton("Remove Item", 425, 50, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

; Intialise ListView
$iLV_Index = _GUIListViewEx_Init($cLV)
; Insert lines
_GUIListViewEx_Insert($FileToArray, True)
; Register required messages
_GUIListViewEx_MsgRegister(True, False, False, False)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

            $aContent = _GUIListViewEx_ReturnArray($iLV_Index)
            _FileWriteFromArray($File,$aContent)

            Exit

        Case $cInsert
            _GUIListViewEx_Insert("New line")
        Case $cDelete
            _GUIListViewEx_Delete()
    EndSwitch
 WEnd

david1337,

Glad you like the UDF - it is a pretty complex beast to master, but does have a lot of functionality.

Hi Melba

I need your help again :> (or some other genius) :D
When the OK button is clicked it writes the input from $ReadinputboxUsername into my text file, which works as expected.
Then it exits the loop, and goes back to the main GUI.

Is it possible to update my ListView when the OK button in the childGUI is clicked? In other words: It has to read and show the newly updated content of the text file.

Thanks for your answer, but that didn't do the trick I'm afraid :(

Well you are going to have to rewrite some of your code for this to work.

 

I suggest making your own function with the FileReadToArray in it and calling it separately when needed (at the beginning, when you click ok... etc) to repopulate (update) your listview

Hmm can't make it work properly - will have to give it some more work.

Thanks mate, that was a big help! :) So simple!

And since I wanted to write to the top row, I used:

_GUIListViewEx_InsertSpec( 1, $ReadinputboxUsername, $ReadinputboxUsername)

And now this became unnecessary:

_FileWriteToLine($File, 1, $ReadinputboxUsername, 0)

Since I use _FileWriteFromArray on exit.

Yeah, I guess that the example needs a little polish -  anything specific? :P

No worries.  If you are interested see my last code post (15). ( Delete (unnecessary) empty CR and run Tidy )

I understand most people dont clean up until there close to finishing up.

Just me being fastidious (anal)  o:)

Good luck with your project !

      ciao,
      I need to scale an outlined GDI text in a GUI. The problem is that I can't do this. The outline is often out of the GUI
      I started from this script:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_GDIPlus_PathTransform.htm
      that fit a string to windows and I changed
       $aBounds = _GDIPlus_PathGetWorldBounds($hPath) ;Get bounding rectangle of the path
      $aBounds = _GDIPlus_PathGetWorldBounds($hPath) ;Get bounding rectangle of the path with 
      $aBounds = _GDIPlus_PathGetWorldBounds($hPath,$hMatrix,$hPen) ;Get bounding rectangle of the path with pen size but doesn't work
      so, I tried to change other thins, but nothing... Sometimes works, but if I change the string often result change

      Ciao,
      Is there a function to create a stroke text?
      I have found the solution to fill the text with a texture, to make a shadow and to make a text with glow , but I can't reproduce the stoke effect.)
      I have attached an example image of what I would like to reproduce
      I have tried to adapt this script of Malkey but with no result
      The Malkey script is this (I have edit some line) and the original post is here:

      Hello.
      I've got a problem. I want to center my input vertically, but I don't have any single idea how to do it.
      There's my example code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> $GUI = GUICreate("Gui", 237, 93, 192, 124) $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Center vertically isn't correct", 16, 16, 201, 62) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd What could I do?
      Greetings, "genotypek".

      Hi,
      working on my first autoit GUI an got some questions.
      Is it possible to get an action on the first menu level
      For example:
      $StartMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Datei") ... while 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $StartMenu MsgBox(0, "Test", "yes this works") (currently this does not work for me)
      Currently I have to create GUICtrlCreateMenuItem 's this will leed to a result
       
      And a 2nd question. I saw many time this:
      $StartMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&Datei") For what does I need the ampersand? If I leave out the & nothing seems to change
       
      Thank you very much in advance
