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

Recommended Posts

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

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi, recently i created a GUI for some calculations in AutoIT.  The GUI has 2 tabs and on the first tab, it has few inputboxes where i use to click with mouse and start entering the inputs. i recently made some changes in the position of these textboxes. I made this by changing the autoit code file instead of making changes in KODA. Now i cannot click inside these textboxes with mouse. However, i can use TAB key to cycle through/enter input in these input boxes. what could have made the inputboxes not responding to mouseclicks. thanks

      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..") If _ImGui_Button("click me") Then $f_value = 5 _ImGui_SliderFloat("slider", $f_value, 2, 20) If _ImGui_IsItemHovered() Then _ImGui_ToolTip("what r u doing?") _ImGui_End() ; must call _ImGui_EndFrame() Wend  
      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

      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.
