I only found that AutoIt can actually execute the entire python script or execute the .exe (converted to .exe from .py)
But what if I just want call the particular function? If that possible to do so?
This is because python can't create fancy GUI like AutoIT does. So my plan is use AutoIT to have fancy GUI.
Then each buttons will trigger specific function in the python script or .exe file.
btnSum - trigger function in python script or .exe file (funcSum)
btnMinus - trigger function in python script or .exe file (funcMinus)
Thanks for advance information.
Hello my friends
Can we create a single context menu on more than one item?
For example, a context menu includes standardized options on more than one control, such as buttons or check boxes
to Create a context menu on one item am using this function
GUICtrlCreateContextMenu ($ HWND)
How to link it with more than one element please?
or if we can't do that, please give me a solution
so i tried to add an context menus to all the controls but the script will be long, for that if their are any solutions i hope to give it to me
thanks in advanced
GuiFlatButton is a UDF to easily create regular buttons with different colors for background, foreground, border, hover, focus, etc..
This started as an effort to change the background color of a button and eventually grew into a full UDF.
If you've looked around forums for changing button background colors, you have probably noticed that each proposed workaround has its own set of issues/side-effects. The answers usually circle back to 'use ownerdrawn buttons' and 'not worth it'. Well, now it is possible for anyone to easily create ownerdrawn buttons - totally worth it!
Some issues with other workarounds such as drawing with GDI+ or using a colored label as a 'button':
Not 'real' buttons so you lose built-in functionality that windows gives to buttons Messy / inefficient code in the main while loop to check for mouse position Slow to respond to click, paint, etc... Having to deal with GUIRegisterMsg messages Not straight-forward to implement GuiFlatButton is not a workaround; it is a technique to respond to Windows' built-in owner-drawn button events.
With minimal effort, we can now create true simple colored buttons.
The idea is to create an owner-drawn button using GUICtrlCreateButton then subclass the GUI and controls to handle the button-specific events to paint it however we want.
This UDF magically does all of this for us! No need to worry about event handling or main while loop logic.
How to use
It couldn't be any easier! Simply create a new button using the familiar syntax. This creates an ownerdrawn button with default colors.
$mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 78, 20, 120, 40) If you want to change the background and text colors:
GuiFlatButton_SetBkColor(-1, 0x5555FF) GuiFlatButton_SetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF) Advanced Usage
Set background/text/border all at once
GuiFlatButton_SetColors(-1, 0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0x9999FF) Set ALL colors for ALL button states! (normal, focus, hover, selected)
Local $aColorsEx = [0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, -2, 0x4444FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xAAAAFF, 0x6666FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xCCCCFF, 0x0000EE, 0xFFFFFF, 0x7777EE] GuiFlatButton_SetColorsEx(-1, $aColorsEx) Set default colors to apply to any future buttons
;set colors GuiFlatButton_SetDefaultColors(0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0x9999FF) ;create buttons $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 12, 20, 120, 40) $mybutton2 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 2", 143, 20, 120, 40) Set ALL color defaults
;set colors Local $aColorsEx = [0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, -2, 0x4444FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xAAAAFF, 0x6666FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xCCCCFF, 0x0000EE, 0xFFFFFF, 0x7777EE] GuiFlatButton_SetDefaultColorsEx($aColorsEx) ;create buttons $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 12, 20, 120, 40) $mybutton2 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 2", 143, 20, 120, 40)

I'm sure there are some use-cases I've forgotten, so feedback is welcome!
Added 2 new functions to set the button colors globally for all future buttons.

GUIRegisterMsg in AutoIt Help (owner-draw button example)
_Metro_SplashTextScreen(1, "", $iMsg) AdlibRegister("_Metro_LoopInProgress") DirRemove($DIR_WA_FOLDER, 1) Local $iCopy = _WinAPI_ShellFileOperation($CUR_WA_FOLDER, $DIR_WA_FOLDER, $FO_COPY, BitOr($FOF_SIMPLEPROGRESS, $FOF_NOCONFIRMMKDIR)) AdlibUnRegister("_Metro_LoopInProgress") _Metro_SplashTextScree If @error Then _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", $iCopy) _FileWriteLog($LOG_INSTALLATION, "Error: " & $iCopy) Else _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Application is up to date!") _FileWriteLog($LOG_INSTALLATION, "Debug: Application is up to date.") EndIf According to the help file of _WinAPI_ShellFileOperation there are a lot of failure and error code. But how can I handle all of them and display corresponding error message based on the help file?
The incident is like this:
I'll lock the folder with permission, so when I execute the _WinAPI_ShellFileOperation to copy and overwrite the folder contents, it popped me an error message saying that permission issue to caused I can't access the folder and overwrite the contents.
Then I clicked Cancel button, and my AutoIT application exit immediately and it's not execute the function _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", $iCopy) to display the message.
Anyway, I did also tried the code below, the it still display "Application is up to date!"
According to the help file, 120 - Security settings denied access to the source.
If @error = 120 Then _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", $iCopy) _FileWriteLog($LOG_INSTALLATION, "Error: " & $iCopy) Else _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Application is up to date!") _FileWriteLog($LOG_INSTALLATION, "Debug: Application is up to date.") EndIf
I have a application that have a function is to create a shortcut to desktop, lets say is ChromePortable.lnk.
$iCreate = FileCreateShortcut($DIR_WA_FOLDER & '\GoogleChromePortable.exe', $DIR_SHORTCUT, $DIR_WA_FOLDER, '--kiosk "https://example.com/"') So the shortcut will be launch as kiosk mode and force to enter the specific website. However, the user is still able to right-click on the shortcut and modify the target value to remove the kiosk mode. What can I do to disable the user to editing the target value?
So far, I had asked and tried from SuperUser for advises Disable Shortcut Target Field
icacls "ChromePortable.lnk" /GRANT EVERYONE:RX So this will set the permission of this shortcut file to only Read & Execute only! But after I set it, the user is still can modify.
Please kindly advise.
Please note and assume that user don't have Administration account or etc, that should be only have 1 account to logon to the computer.
I must disable inheritance to remove all others permissions like SYSTEM, ADMINISTRATORS, etc. Then only GRANT everyone for READ & EXECUTE only.
But still the user can go to edit the permissions tho. Any advise?
