GUI Case when item is selected

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys

I hope that I can get a little help with this one :)

 

In this GUI example using GUIListViewEx, I have a list based on items found in test.txt.

_____________________________________________

item1
item2
item3

____________________________________________

etc....
 

When an item is selected, and I click the GetInfo button, a message will show the text of that item.

Is it possible to activate a case like that as soon as the item is selected, so I don't need a button to start the case?

 

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


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



Call ("MainGUI_ManageItemList")



Func MainGUI_ManageItemList()

    Local $Button1

    $MainGUI_ManageItemList = GUICreate("Manage Item List", 800, 400, -1, -1)

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

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button 1", 425, 10, 80, 30)
$RemoveItem = GUICtrlCreateButton("Remove Item", 425, 50, 80, 30)
$GetInfo = GUICtrlCreateButton("GetInfo", 425, 120, 80, 30)


GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $MainGUI_ManageItemList)



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


    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

                ExitLoop

            Case $Button1
            MsgBox(0,"","Button 1 is pressed")


         Case $RemoveItem
            _GUIListViewEx_Delete()



         Case $GetInfo
         $ItemSelected = _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($cLV, True)
         If IsArray($ItemSelected) And $ItemSelected[0] <> 0 Then ;This part makes sure it doesn't crash when no item is selected.
         $ItemSelectedText = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($cLV, $ItemSelected[1])


         msgbox (0, "Selected item", $ItemSelectedText)

         EndIf

        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Main

david1337,

Perhaps something like this:

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

Global $iCurrentIndex = 0

Global $MainGUI_ManageItemList
Global $File = @ScriptFullPath
Global $FileToArray = FileReadToArray($File)

MainGUI_ManageItemList()

Func MainGUI_ManageItemList()

    Local $Button1

    $MainGUI_ManageItemList = GUICreate("Manage Item List", 800, 400, -1, -1)

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

    $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button 1", 425, 10, 80, 30)
    $RemoveItem = GUICtrlCreateButton("Remove Item", 425, 50, 80, 30)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $MainGUI_ManageItemList)

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


    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop

            Case $Button1
                MsgBox(0, "", "Button 1 is pressed")

            Case $RemoveItem
                _GUIListViewEx_Delete()

        EndSwitch

        $ItemSelected  = _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($cLV, True)
        If IsArray($ItemSelected ) And $ItemSelected[0] <> 0 Then
            If $ItemSelected[1] <> $iCurrentIndex Then
                $iCurrentIndex = $ItemSelected[1]
                $ItemSelectedText = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($cLV, $ItemSelected[1])
                MsgBox(0, "Selected item", $ItemSelectedText)
            EndIf
        EndIf

    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>MainGUI_ManageItemList

Melba, thank you so much!

As always, a pleasure :)

It worked just as intended, and this time I actually understood what you did!
Now that I know how to do this, I have a lot to work on :D

Hey Melba :)

Do you know why in our example here, the first item is selected when the GUI is opened, and it doesn't react to that selection (like when you click an item)?

No, but I noticed that it happened and...

...initialised the $iCurrentIndex to 0 to ensure that it did not.

Ahh yes of course :) Let's pretend I didn't just ask you that.


I will have to work on the automatic highlight of the first item.

 

Thanks!

      MS Splash Screens
      The office 2016/17 office suite has made many people turn heads with its functions and especially their splash screen.
      I now present to you, the MS Style Splash Screen. For Rookies, Novices and anyone who wants a ready made splash screen for your gui application.

      You can now download it and also try it out yourself.
      You have three colors to choose from:
      Blue
      Red
      Green
      All three colours are from the famous programs.
      I also included the KODA form to you can have freedom with this splash screen.
      Note: the KODA form does not have the three colours as well as the correct blue. 

      Have fun and enjoy.
      Note:
      I will update the splash to add the automated 3 dots animation at a later stage.

      Hello all,
      I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
      ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
      ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
      RunWait('"'&@ProgramFilesDir&'\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --silent-launch',@ScriptDir)  
      But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome? 
      Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
       
      Thank you,

      I have a working program currently driven largely through menu selections. I would like to add a toolbar where most of the tollbar button actions are basically the same as menu items, but quicker to access. I have been wading around in toolbar examples, MSDN pages etc, it's clearly going to be a bit of a slog to get everything right, including tooltips etc. I thought I would start with something simple to prove the principle.
      Using bits from the help file examples I have a small program that successfully displays a toolbar. However, what seemed like the most elegant way to deal with the button commands does not seem to work. My understanding was that a toolbar button fires a WM_COMMAND message, with the command Id set by the second parameter in the call to
      _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton ( $hWnd, $iID, $iImage)
      so I though it would be a good idea to set this Id to the same value as my menu item Id; then it would run the same task which is what I wanted. This did not work. I am using message loop mode and would like to stick with this because some of my scripts run hardware at the same time as the gui; it is easier if I don't have to worry about code being interrupted with the hardware in an unknown state . So I added a handler for WM_COMMAND, with some cribbed display code to try and see why. The toolbar button defintely fired a WM_COMMAND message and the Id looked the same, so no explanation there.
      I guess the issue is with GUIGetMsg() which may be constructed to ignore all but a limited number of control handles, i.e. those made with the GuiCtrlCreate... commands; this is speculation.
      I would dearly love to find a tidy way to get around this. Having some controls handled in the message loop and some in a WM_COMMAND handler, performing the same task, feels ugly. I would be very grateful for further insight from someone experienced with handling a toolbar. Perhaps I should be trying to fire the menu item. I have attached a code snippet to try and illustrate the issue.

      Hello all,
      I've been working on 4 standalone scripts. They each have their own GUI and are now independent .exe's. But instead of having 4 separate icons on my computer, is it possible to put them all together into one .exe?
      What I want is one interface with tabs. Each script's GUI would be on their own respective tab. Is this possible?
      The different scripts don't need to communicate with one another. I just want them all in one .exe.
      I can't find this anywhere... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
