Loading window not closing and not staying on top of main window

Recommended Posts

cookiemonster

Hi,

I have a main window with one button, when i press that button it brings up a loading screen, but I have two problems with the loading screen at the moment:

1) Once I have pressed the button, if i open something else full screen over this autoit project (eg: chrome), then on my task bar click on the autoit project to bring it up to the front, the loading screen does not stay on top of the main window, I tried using $WS_EX_TOPMOST but this makes the loading screen stay on top of all windows, I only want it to stay on top of $Main (my main window GUI)

2) Once the loading screen has been updated to 100%, it should sleep for a further two seconds then close, but at the moment after that 2 seconds, it goes back down to 25% instead of $LoadingWindow being deleted.

Has anyone got any thoughts or suggestions?

First Problem Fix;

Global $LoadingWindow = GUICreate("", 500, 184, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_POPUP, $WS_BORDER), BitOR($WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW),$Main)

Second Problem;

Is because your generating two loading screen GUIS and only deleting one.

Code with both problems fixed.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <FontConstants.au3>

Global $LoadingWindow
$Main = GUICreate("Main Window", 600, 480, -1, -1, -1, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)
Global $button_Load = GUICtrlCreateButton("Loading Screen", 484, 98, 89, 20, $WS_GROUP)
GUICtrlCreateTab(8, 16, 585, 424)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Settings")
GUICtrlCreateGroup("Settings", 16, 50, 569, 380)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOWNORMAL)

Func Load()
    $GUI = LoadingScreen("Loading @ 25%")
    GUICtrlSetData($LoadingPercent, 25)

    sleep(1000)

    GUICtrlSetData($LoadingLabelText, "Loading @ 100%")
    GUICtrlSetData($LoadingPercent, 100)

    sleep(1000)

   GUIDelete($LoadingWindow)
EndFunc

Func LoadingScreen($LoadingText) ;Creates a Splash Text Screen with a progress bar.

    Global $LoadingWindow = GUICreate("", 500, 184, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_POPUP, $WS_BORDER), BitOR($WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW),$Main)
    Global $LoadingPercent = GUICtrlCreateProgress(18, 144, 461, 25, $PBS_SMOOTH)
    Global $LoadingLabelText = GUICtrlCreateLabel($LoadingText, 2, 44, 494, 88, $SS_CENTER)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 15, 800, 0, "Calibra", $CLEARTYPE_QUALITY)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

EndFunc

While (1)
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $button_Load
            Load()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I forgot your disabled / enabled bit. Here is with it added in and a small loop for the percentage. Good luck on your project.

      Good evening everyone
      First, I want to apologize with you for the title not very clear, but I thought a little bit on which title to set at the thread, and this is the one that came in mind.
      Now, let me explain what I'm trying to understand.

      I am making an application ( with n clients ), with an SQLite Database, which has a Main form, and n sub-forms... 
      Since these sub-forms are called several times, because they are used to add or update records to the Database, I put the code that generates the GUI of these sub-forms in Functions.
      There are two sub-forms which are "treated" as two main forms, since even them have n sub-forms, which perform various tasks.
      Where am I stucked?

      For the Main form I created a Status Bar, in order to display messages ( add/delete/update/search results ), and it works perfectly with all the forms which don't have other sub-forms.
      For the two forms, which indeed have n sub-forms, I created two separated Status Bars, which are (re)created everytime I call the function that then displays the form.
      Practically, I can't set icons to these two Status Bars, and I don't know why.
      I'm really sorry that I don't feel clear enough, so, here you are an example of what I am saying.
      I recreated exactly what my script does:
      #include <GuiButton.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiStatusBar.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $frmSubForm, _ $txtSubFormField, _ $sbSubFormStatusBar, _ $objSB_IconError = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(109), _ $objSB_IconInformation = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(277) #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmMainForm = GUICreate("Main Form", 300, 300, -1, -1) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "ExitApplication") $sbMainStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmMainForm) $btnCreateSubForm = GUICtrlCreateButton("Create Sub Form", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "GenerateSubForm") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbMainStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbMainStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func ExitApplication() Exit EndFunc Func GenerateSubForm() #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmSubForm = GUICreate("Sub-Form", 300, 300, -1, -1, -1, -1, $frmMainForm) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "DeleteSubForm") $txtSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, 100, 20) $btnCheckSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Field", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "CheckSubFormField") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") $sbSubFormStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmSubForm) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbSubFormStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbSubFormStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### EndFunc Func DeleteSubForm() ; Declared Globally => $frmSubForm GUIDelete($frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $frmMainForm) EndFunc Func WriteToStatusBar($sbStatusBar, $objSB_Icon, $strText) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetIcon($sbStatusBar, 0, $objSB_Icon) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbStatusBar, $strText) ConsoleWrite("Icon Handle: " & $objSB_Icon & @CRLF) EndFunc Func CheckSubFormField() ; Declared Globally => $txtSubFormField If GUICtrlRead($txtSubFormField) = "" Then ; Declared Globally => $sbStatusBar WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconError, "Field NOK.") Else WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconInformation, "Field OK.") EndIf EndFunc The text is set, but icon is not.
      Could someone please tell me why?
      Thanks everyone in advance  

      Best Regards.

      Hi, everybody
      I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
      In other words:
          Any PC screen able to calculate the size
          To consider the Task bar size
          To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it

      Notes:
      In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
      Thanks a lot
      PS
      I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.
