Error check implementation (problem with loop exit)

1 post in this topic

Hi everyone!
I'm developing small testing tool for new software in my company.
Tool itself is working correctly (it follows scripted test commands one by one), but I'm trying to develop an error checking function.

Mechanics are simple: every time software (external) shows specific error (via window class), program asks for next step. Continue, or abort test (and return to main GUI)?
The error check function is switched on/off via Checkbox in GUI.

Here are some code fragments:


Global $idCheckbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Enable error handling", 352, 40, 249, 17)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "Calibri")
    GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)


Checkbox switch:

Local $Choosen

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

        Case $idCheckbox1
            If _IsChecked($idCheckbox1) Then
                $cSwitch1 = 1
                $cSwitch1 = 0

        Case $idAddTest
(and so on...)


Function call:

(alot of ElseIf commands...)

                    ElseIf $aItem = $idOperatorIn Then
                    ControlClick($hFSO, "", "[NAME:lblCashierNumber]")
                    Send("0000019{Enter}19{Enter 2}")


                #EndRegion ### START ELSEIF ARMY ###

        If $cSwitch1 = 1 Then
            MsgBox( 0, "Error check!", "Error check ON!")  /// just for testing purposes

Classic _IsChecked function:

Func _IsChecked($idControlID)
    Return BitAND(GUICtrlRead($idControlID), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
EndFunc   ;==>_IsChecked


And Checkerror() function itself:

Func CheckError()
    Local $Answer
    If ControlCommand($hMsgPanel, "", "[NAME:panelMsgBox]", "IsEnabled", "") Then
;~      Sleep($Sleep_05)
        $Answer = MsgBox(52, "Error!", "An error occured! Continue testing?")
;~      Sleep($Sleep_05)
        Switch $Answer
            Case 6
                MsgBox(0, "Error!", "Test will now continue.", 3)
            Case 7
                MsgBox(64, "Error!", "Test cancelled.", 5)
                $ElseIfArmyOff = 1
                ControlClick($hMsgPanel, "", "[NAME:cmdOK]")
                    MsgBox( 0, "test1", $idTSList)
                    Local $idTSListCopy
                    For $i = 0 to _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($idTSList) - 1\
                $idTSListCopy = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemTextString($idTestCaseList, $LoopCount)
    Return 1
EndFunc   ;==>CheckError

Problem is: i can't make this function (CheckError() ) return to main gui state, that means: break the If/ElseIf loop.
The switch is working correctly (MsgBox on error shows only when it's activated).
Checkerror() function works correctly - recognizes the error, stops script until decision is made. But it doesn't terminate If/ElseIf loop.

Any help appreciated!

      I have searched everywhere but on the forum there isn't an example of a combobox with checkbox. I think is a very useful control but require subclassing. Several example in C++, one of this:
      CheckComboBox Control
      If somone has some time to check it out. If need i can provide the source code. Thanks

      I have below screen when I launch the application.

      By default the first radio button is checked.
      I want to select the second radio button as highlighted.
      And when it is selected, the textbox highlighted will be enabled and we need to enter the license details.
      To do that, I tried to get the control id with windo info tool , but I am getting the second section(Concurrent Licenses) completely as "Button" class with ID 12.But not that radiobutton ID.
      Even I tried with that as below.
      $hwd =WinWaitActivate("erwin Data Modeler Licensing","Acquire concurrent u") ControlCommand($hwd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:12]","Check") But not working.
      Any suggestions please.

      For some reason my personal notes were omitted when posting.
      Still a Newb it seems! So have attached my slightly modified example.
      If I comment out Exit button references script will not Exit even with windows 'X' button icon.
      If I'm losing GUI/Tab focus I cannot see where is the difference with(out) definition.

      So, I have a text file like this...
      "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} What I'm attempting to do is read the data from this file, into an array, and use it to create checkboxes on a form like this...
      For $cb = 0 to 4 ; line numbers $Checkbox[$cb] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox({label}, {left}, {top}, {width}, {height}) Next However, I can't figure out how to read the file into the array so as to be able to assign the data elements appropriately. I'm obviously missing something (or more than likely more than one something), but can't figure it out.
      Can anyone assist with this?

      Hey everyone, I'm curious if there is a way to incorporate a checkbox with a combo GUICtrl?
      so for instance I have a GUI that has a bunch of checkboxes that allow me to open certain programs as needed.  (this is just some parsing of my code, sorry, noob here and not sure what the preferred method of displaying code is, please enlighten me)

          $L0742 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("L07 4.2", 110, 320, 100)
          $L07502 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("L07 5.0.2", 110, 350, 100)
          $GenComm = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("GenComm", 110, 380, 100)
          $Templates = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Templates", 110, 410, 100)
          $MCT = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("MCT", 110, 440, 100)
          $Desktop_Shortcuts = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Desktop Shortcuts by Tester", 110, 470, 200)
      Case $msg = $RunBtn
      Func RunPrograms()

          if GUICtrlRead($L0742) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("C:\Program Files\Varian\Paxscan\L07 Rel4.2\viva\viva.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($L07502) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("C:\Program Files\Varian\Paxscan\L07 Rel5\viva\viva.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($GenComm) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("\\Fpanelfs1\FPShared\Desktop_Shortcuts_by_Tester\Matt\CPI Generator\CPI Generator Windows 7 64 Bit\GenComm\GenComm.NET.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($Templates) = $GUI_CHECKED then ShellExecute("\\Fpanelfs1\FPProjects\Documentation Controlled\Test_Templates")
          if GUICtrlRead($MCT) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("\\Fpanelfs1\FPProjects\Documentation Controlled\Manufacturing Software\MCT\MCT.exe","")
          if GUICtrlRead($Desktop_Shortcuts) = $GUI_CHECKED then ShellExecute("\\Fpanelfs1\fpshared\Desktop_Shortcuts_by_Tester")
      so i click some checkboxes, and hit a run button and the programs which are checked run, great.
      BUT i want to add a bunch of options under one checkbox. A combo that will list a bunch of versions of a program that can be opened. something like this... but I want that program to be part of a checkbox
      $ViVAComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("L01 Rel 13", 110, 320, 100)
      GUICtrlSetData($ViVAComboBox, "L04|L05|L07 Rel 4.2|L07 Rel 5.0.2|L09", "L07 Rel 4.2")
      is this possible? is there another GUICtrl that does this better that i am not aware of?
