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)
         EndIf

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)

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

      Good morning guys
      I was trying to not open another post, writing here my little issue, but seems that no one cares about, and so, I'm opening another post
      What I'm trying to do, is detect the event close sent from the virtual keyboard.
      Why?
      Because, I have an application which, when I set the focus on a textbox, if the virtual keyboard does not exist, then it is created, else, it's not created
      But, everytime I try to close the virtual keyboard, the focus remains on the textbox, and another $EN_FOCUS event it's launched and detected from my WM_COMMAND, and so, the virtual keyboard is opened again. 
      How can I solve this little "issue"? 
      I was trying to detect the event sent from the virtual keyboard, storing the handle of it in a variable, and setting:
      GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CloseVK", $hVirtualKeyboard) without any result.
      Can someone please help me?
      Thanks

      I have 2 items (a field box and a bypass checkbox). every time the box is checked i need the field to become writable. unchecked is read only displaying some text.
      this is as far as i got as I am stuck at making it read/write toggle

      So I having issues with this GUI/Listview. My main GUI works like it needs to but the ListView GUIs don't. The exit buttons do not work on them and om have a hard time getting them to work. And I'm trying to make the  listview GUI resizeable. But I'm not sure how to fix either of these issues any thoughts.

      Hey,
      I'd like to create a gui wich records the total runtime of the script. 
      It should tell the hours,minutes and seconds (like this: Running since 00:00:00)
      This is what I have right now:
      Local $iTimer, $hGUI, $cLabel $iTimer = TimerInit() $hGUI = GUICreate("") $cLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",300,380,100,20) GUISetState() AdlibRegister("_UpdateLabel",1000) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case -3 Exit EndSwitch Wend Func _UpdateLabel() $iTimerDiff = TimerDiff($iTimer) GUICtrlSetData($cLabel,"Running Since " & Round($iTimerDiff/1000,0) & " sec.") EndFunc Thanks in advance

      I  need to has Opt(GUISetOnEvent,-1) available in my script, but since I'm using koda designer it uses GUIgetmessage is there any work around for this. I'm pretty new to this stuff so any help is great appreciated.
      Any Thoughts?
