Multi "Screen" GUI Management

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Just wanted to share my functions for managing a GUI with lots of controls and many screens.

I personally feel that it is very efficient and keeps line count to a minimum.

And if it's not, I'll learn a better solution!

Note: There are some conditional veriables such as $changes and $cont that are modified by the main loop in this particular script; they are meant as an example, please don't try too hard to understand why they're used.

*Usage*

This allows you to re-state a handful of buttons in one line when doing slight GUI changes:

ToggleCTRL($GUI_DISABLE, $dALO, $dAAF, $dRLA) (A few buttons on a certain screen)

ToggleCTRL($GUI_DISABLE, $dSAV, $dCAN) (Save/Cancel buttons)

AND

A single line solution to switching a GUI "screen":

GuiMod("MAIN", $GUI_HIDE)

GuiMod("DETAILS", $GUI_SHOW)

GuiMod("PLANS", $GUI_HIDE)

Another way I've used this to my advantage is as follows:

Say a GUI has 3 or 4 main screens, and 3 or 4 "form" screens.

When switching to a form screen, save the main screen that it was on to a variable; then once the user is done with the form, either submitting or cancelling, you can call the variable to revert back to the main screen it was on.

Func _GuiMod($i, $tog, $act = True)
   Switch $i
   Case "MAIN"
      If $tog = $GUI_SHOW And $changes Then
         $changes = False
         ControlClick($GUI, "", $LOGfg)
      Else
      EndIf
      If $tog = $GUI_SHOW Then WinMove($GUI, "", Default, Default, 535, 445)
      _ToggleCTRL($tog, $TAB, $LOGfl, $LOGfc, $LOGfi, $LOGfg, $LOGta, $LOGvd)
      _ToggleCTRL($tog, $LOGtp, $LOGse)
   Case "DETAILS"
      If $tog = $GUI_SHOW Then WinMove($GUI, "", Default, Default, 535, 475)
      Local $cont = True
      If $tog = $GUI_SHOW And $act Then
         If Not UpdateDetails() Then
            $cont = False
            _GuiMod("MAIN", $GUI_SHOW)

Small question/suggestion for your _ToggleCTRL function.  Why not just provide an array to the function?  That way you don't limit yourself to x (12) manually defined parameters and you eliminate the extra overhead from the Eval function.

Sometimes, I call the ToggleCTRL function with different groups of control variables, maybe even just two to three.

I like your idea, although I wish I could call it with something like:

ToggleCTRL($GUI_DISABLE, [$nALOb, $nAAFb])

I don't like the idea of having to declare a local variable every time before calling it, unless I'm missing something...

Local $tcArr = [$nALOb, $nAAFb]

ToggleCTRL($GUI_DISABLE, $tcArr)

The idea is to reduce the line count in the main script logic; please advise?

 

Thank you to you both!

Well, you're right...you'd have to define the arrays, but not every time (unless it truly needs to be dynamic).  You could declare arrays for each collection of controls at the beginning of your script.  

edit:
Another idea I thought of to simply the array creation....you could use StringSplit to create an array from a character delimited string with your control IDs.  Really cutting out the Eval overhead is what I was suggesting.

Yeah, I'd rather not define an array that's going to be used once.

The delimited string idea is perfect, thank you very much; I'll edit the first post with that!

I'm not sure if I prefer this method. It may reduce the need for Eval and turn it into a one line solution, although I've never had issues with performance when using Eval and the method I'm currently using is a tad easier to read.

Func _GuiMod($i, $tog, $act = True)
   Switch $i

Today I realized a good way to further reduce the needed code to process controls like this.

 

Local $mNamLa = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Name:", 8, 9)
Local $mNamIn = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 50, 5, 220, 20)
Local $mTypLa = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Type:", 12, 39)
Local $mTypAD = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Active Directory", 50, 35, 100)
Local $mTypIn = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Input", 160, 35, 50)
Local $mTypSe = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select", 220, 35, 50)
Local $mADaLa = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Attribute Name:", 10, 71, 79)
Local $mADaIn = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 90, 67, 180)
Local $mSelLa = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Values:", 30, 71, 44)
Local $mSelCo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 75, 67, 120, 25, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
Local $mSelAd = GUICtrlCreateButton("", 205, 64, 26, 26, $BS_ICON)
GUICtrlSetImage(-1, @ScriptDir & "\icons\add.ico")
Local $mSelRe = GUICtrlCreateButton("", 240, 64, 26, 26, $BS_ICON)
GUICtrlSetImage(-1, @ScriptDir & "\icons\delete.ico")
Local $mActSa = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save", 30, 105, 100, 25)
Local $mActCa = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 150, 105, 100, 25)

;Using the function below, you can use the following to toggle gui screens.
_ToggleCTRL($GUI_HIDE, "mNamLa", "mActCa")
;Further, it leaves the option to toggle a list of particular ones that are not in order if you need to
_ToggleCTRL($GUI_HIDE, $mTypLa, $mTypAD, $mTypIn, $mTypSe, $mSelLa, $mSelCo)

Func _ToggleCTRL($tog, $c0 = 0, $c1 = 0, $c2 = 0, $c3 = 0, $c4 = 0, $c5 = 0, $c6 = 0, $c7 = 0, $c8 = 0, $c9 = 0, $c10 = 0, $c11 = 0, $c12 = 0)
   If IsString($c0) Then
      For $i = Eval($c0) To Eval($c1)
         GUICtrlSetState($i, $tog)
      Next
   Else
      For $i = 0 To @NumParams
         GUICtrlSetState(Eval("c" & $i), $tog)
      Next
   EndIf
EndFunc

      Hi,
      I have created a bit of code to enable a script to find named controls on a userform, even though the MS CLASS description changes between machines.
      e.g. The CLASS "WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.24b689f_r14_ad1" for a text box on one PC is different on another.
      The below code, (a cut-down version of the code from jdelaney original post)  loops through all the controls and finds the first one with the desired string in the control class name - in this case "EDIT".  This name is then usable for setting the text using ControlSetText.
       
      #include <array.au3> WinActivate("Edit Part Rule") $TheClassName = GetAllWindowsControls(WinGetHandle("Edit Part Rule"), "EDIT") ;Sleep(500) ControlSetText("Edit Part Rule", "", "[CLASS:" & $TheClassName & "; INSTANCE:3]", $CmdLine[1]) ControlSetText("Edit Part Rule", "", "[CLASS:" & $TheClassName & "; INSTANCE:4]", $CmdLine[2]) Func GetAllWindowsControls($hCallersWindow, $sStringIncludes) ; Get all list of controls $sClassList = WinGetClassList($hCallersWindow) ; Create array $aClassList = StringSplit($sClassList, @CRLF, 2) ; Sort array _ArraySort($aClassList) _ArrayDelete($aClassList, 0) ; Loop For $i = 0 To UBound($aClassList) - 1 If StringInStr($aClassList[$i], $sStringIncludes) Then Return $aClassList[$i] EndIf Next EndFunc ;==>GetAllWindowsControls If anyone has any suggestions to improve it, or a better way to achieve the same thing, please let me know.

      Hey guys,
      I was trying to create a script with a GUI but when I start the script via pressing the startbutton in my GUI and then trying to stop the script it won't close/stop.
      Here is the script:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= Global $GUI = GUICreate("AlphaAgility", 218, 65, 1147, 123) Global $StartButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 24, 16, 75, 25) Global $StopButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 120, 16, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $StartButton while(1) Agility() WEnd Case $StopButton Exit EndSwitch WEnd Global $agility = False Func Agility() MouseClick("Left",random(466,500),random(634,669),1,random(10,20));Balancier-Stamm If Not(@error) Then $agility = True sleep(random(0,200)) MouseMove(random(408,661),random(632,749),random(10,20));random Mousemovement Balancier-Stamm Else EndIf sleep(5500) MouseClick("Left",448,820,1,random(10,20));Netz If Not(@error) Then $agility = True sleep(random(0,200)) MouseMove(random(334,557),random(774,876),random(10,20));random Mousemovement Netz Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(3750) MouseClick("Left",480,706,1,random(10,20));Ast If Not(@error) Then $agility = True ;sleep(random(0,200)) ;MouseMove(random(95,953),random(117,1067),random(10,20)) -> kein random Mousemovement nötig Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(2750) MouseClick("Left",727,608,1,random(10,20));Balancier-Seil If Not(@error) Then $agility = True sleep(random(0,200)) MouseMove(random(723,891),random(572,676),random(10,20));random Mousemovement Balancier-Seil Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(6750) MouseClick("Left",698,633,1,random(10,20));Ast If Not(@error) Then $agility = True ;sleep(random(0,200)) ;MouseMove(random(95,953),random(117,1067),random(10,20)) -> kein random Mousemovement nötig Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(4000) MouseClick("Left",random(372,459),random(136,202),1,random(10,20));Netz If Not(@error) Then $agility = True sleep(random(0,200)) MouseMove(random(388,510),random(140,212),random(10,20));random Mousemovement Netz Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(6250) MouseClick("Left",random(362,401),random(363,409),1,random(10,20));Röhre If Not(@error) Then $agility = True ;sleep(random(0,200)) ;MouseMove(random(95,953),random(117,1067),random(10,20)) -> kein random Mousemovement nötig Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(7000) MouseClick("Left",14,654,1,random(10,20));Startposition If Not(@error) Then $agility = True ;sleep(random(0,200)) ;MouseMove(random(388,510),random(140,212),random(10,20)) -> kein random Mousemovement nötig Else EndIf sleep(4000) EndFunc Thanks in advance

      We are trying to automate the installation testing before sending to end users, our product.
      For Silent Installation, we have completed this part.
      But for GUI, the default installation is completed by sending the keys based on the window.
      But for GUI custom installation, we are struck.
      How to enable or disable features in the below screen using GUI automation.?

      I have a GUI with a parent window that has a menu and shortcut buttons at the top, and a child window which displays a list which is scrolled vertically.
      When the list is relatively small, like no more than 100 or so lines then it scrolls fine.  As the list gets larger, scrolling begins to slow, and if you start mixing up the scroll method (mousewheel, left-clicking the scrollbar box, etc) then it begins to hang.  When it hangs, dwm.exe CPU usage maxes out, and I can't even switch to another window.  Each line in the list is 1000px wide X 30px tall, and the lines alternate between a gray background and a white background, in case that matters.
      When a non-Aero theme is active, everything works fine.  So, I could disable DWM every time someone fires it up, but changing a client's color scheme is not ideal.
      I tried to utilize _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Parent,  $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED), and although it succeeds in disabling DWM for that window, it doesn't seem to make any difference as far as the scrolling lag is concerned.
      The code is several thousand lines long and contains proprietary information, so I'm trying to avoid posting that, but these are the lines which are creating the GUIs.  Is there anything that anyone can think of off the top of their heads, or is there anything jumping out at you from this snippet of code?  Any help is appreciated!
      $oGui_Parent = GUICreate("Data Viewer", 700, 500, Default, Default, BitOR($WS_CAPTION, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_POPUPWINDOW)) WinSetTrans($oGui_Parent, "", 255) _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Parent, $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED) GUISetFont(9, 500, 0, "Calibri") GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF) $oGui_Child = GUICreate("", 700, 400, 0, 100, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $oGui_Parent) WinSetTrans($oGui_Child, "", 255) _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Child, $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED) GUISetFont(9, 500, 0, "Calibri") GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF)
