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

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 !

      Hello all! I have had some issues reading text from different types of windows, occasionally, specifically with controlgettext. 
      **Before I begin, I know there are better ways to do what I attempt in the example below. That's not the point of this post. The point is my issues with controlgettext. 
      I am about to cite an example with an application you may be familiar with called SpeedFan (v4.52). My problem is not specific to speedfan, it is simply the most recent and easily reproducible example I can think of. 
      So, the goal of the script below is to get a string of text containing the current fan RPMs from the highlighted control in the screenshot below (see "speedfan_control_details.png").

      Now, here's a simple script for grabbing the window handle and reading the text from that control: 
      $wintitle = "SpeedFan 4.52" $controlID = "197934" ;will be reformatted as "[ID:######]" $hwnd = wingethandle($wintitle) if @error<>0 then msgbox(0, "WinGetHandle", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) Exit EndIf $text = ControlGetText($hwnd, "", "[ID:"&$controlID&"]") if @error=1 then msgbox(0, "ControlGetText", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) ;failure returns "" and @error=1 Exit EndIf msgbox (0, "ControlGetText", "SUCCESS. @error="&@error &@CRLF& "$text="&$text) ;success returns string and @error=0 You'll see that the ControlGetText operation runs without error, however it does not capture any text from the control. If you explore the other controls in this one window, you'll find mixed results across the board. Neither the temps nor voltages can be read, while the log field and some other elements can be read. Even when you read the text from the whole window, those elements are not included in the visible nor hidden texts. 
       
      I have run into this issue many times in the past- inconsistencies in the ability of autoit to interact with certain controls. What is it which makes this text different than any other readable texts? Is there an alternate method of reading the text in the window/control which could work? Any and all info to help me solve this mystery and satisfy my curiosity would be greatly appreciated. 
      Thanks  -Rob C

      Hi,
      I am automating the testing of a video player. I search a file for ".mp4" and want to create a GUI with radio buttons to select what video to play. The number of videos can change based on the user's library so this must be created automatically.  I have searched for how to accomplish this and there are several posts out there that help a little but I can't figure out the solution. I pulled the offending code from my main script and created the file below to make this easier to read. I am sure one of our experts here can help!

      Hello Forum,
      I'm trying to vertically center text in label controls, but no way. The search on the forum returns no result, or I don't search the right way
      When I insert a button and a label of same size close to each other, the text is centered on the button, but top aligned on the label, or edit. Which doesn't look really aesthetic
      Any idea is welcome
      Thanks in advance,
      Thoms
