Multi "Screen" GUI Management

Recommended Posts

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.

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

      Introduction
      ImGui is a popular library written by ocornut, it can make awesome user interface based on directx. It is being used by many big apps/games.  The UI is nice and flexible, easy to use because of frame-by-frame drawing. So I decided to convert the entire ImGui library to AutoIt
      At first it's just an experiment, i converted some basic draw functions of imgui, compile to a dll, then using DllCall in autoit to call the functions. I was testing to see how much FPS i can get in autoit, and i was expected a low FPS, since autoit is slow. Suprisingly, the FPS turned out to be so high, it works really fast, even when drawing 1000 buttons at the same time. Features
      More than +270 functions converted from ImGui (compiled dll). Has 90% of the capability of what you can do in C++; Usable ImGuiIO and ImGuiStyle, so you can set whatever configurations you like. Preview
          
      Usage
      #include <WinAPI.au3> #include "ImGui.au3" ; Create a window Local $hwnd = _ImGui_GUICreate("AutoIt ImGui", 1024, 768) _WinAPI_ShowWindow($hwnd) ; Set style color _ImGui_StyleColorsLight() ;~ _ImGui_StyleColorsDark() Local $f_value = 5 While 1 ; when the user click close button on the window, this will return false if Not _ImGui_PeekMsg() Then Exit ; must call _ImGui_BeginFrame() _ImGui_Begin("Another window") _ImGui_Text("Hello there..")

      Remark
      Most of the functions were converted automatically. I haven't tested all of them yet, if some function doesn't work for you, please tell me. Still missing some features of ImGui, please tell me if you needed any. Run \tools\imgui-au3-setup.au3 to add _ImGui functions to SciTE auto-complete. Source Code

      good morning
      this is the first post here in the autoit forums
      i hope that you can help me in my problem
      i have a JSON encoded
      it a map of my forums
      where i want to make a treeview that have the same type of map
      e.g
      a system (as category)
      windows (as sub category)
      software (as an child item in the windows category)
      .....
      i don't know how to do that
      so, i know that i can do that using the json functions
      but i need your help about how we can do it as the type that i told you
      by the way i need to put the sub info for each item in an array that give me the ability to manage my items
      e.g
      can post thread
      can reply
      message cound ...
      you just give me a small example and i can continue.
      am sorry if this against the rules of the forum.
      but i realy searched a lot but i couldn't
      i hope some one give me the way.
      thank you very much in advance
       
      here is the link of json forum
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/148114-a-non-strict-json-udf-jsmn/
      and here is my encoded json file

      I was looking for a way to embed Windows Media Player into Autoit. I found 2 Windows Media Player UDF's but both of them seem to have used the OCX directly. The problem with using the OCX directly is that the video display size cannot be changed, and it takes the size of the video inherently.
      @seangriffin created the VLC GUI based on embedding the IE object into the GUI and that seems to work perfectly with Windows Media Player as well and it does not give the resize problem.
      I built the WMP.au3 around this concept and would like to share it with everybody.
      Attached is the WMP.au3 and the WMP_Example.au3 where it is used.

      Feedback is appreciated. This is my first UDF, so please be kind.
