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

5 posts in this topic

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()

      I have a workplace GUI that has a search field function that pulls up customer records to allow changes. I am attempting to 1)LOGIN 2)Enter Search field, enter a number and then {ENTER} 3)change specific field once customer record loads.

When I "inspect element" in the Search field I get the attached:

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      So i was fideling around whit it but couldn't get it to work.
      In the real script (not this simplified version) i got a lot of functions whish i can use whan talking to it by commandline and switches.
      I could not get this to work and hope somebody could give me some pointers on how to make it work.
      Also I was hoping iff somebody could help me whit the /? function?
      (I don't know how to output the help text back to the commandline or the function that can help me do it)
      please advice and thanks in advanced.

      Hello,
      I have used this forum to get help many times. I thought it was time to (hopefully) help others.
      I created a script that reads a text file with a list of videos, displays the videos in a GUI with checkboxes next to the names, and displays the selected videos. This will become a part of a larger script I am creating to test a video player. The tough part for me was creating the GUI and Dynamic list of videos. I had a lot of trouble finding samples to help me, but finally found one  written by Melba23. The link is in the code, so he gets credit for helping! I also have not used arrays much and they are very picky about looping through the arrays without getting the dreaded error " Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded."  However diligence paid off!
      To run this code, take the video names commented below and create a videos.txt file in your script execution directory. You can put however many video names in this list. Thus the dynamic features of the code.
      Cheers!
      Jibberish

      Hello Forum,
      As said in the title, I'm searching a way to disable all tabstops in a GUI. My GUI includes 15 buttons and 3 edit controls.
      My questions:
      - is there a way to disable all tabstops at a time
      - is there a way to list all controls of a GUI and then disable tabstops one by one
      - or should I use the following line after each button creation:
      _WinAPI_SetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE, BitAND(_WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE), BitNOT($WS_TABSTOP))) Thanks in advance for your valuable help!

      Edit: or maybe disable TAB key? I don't remember how to do!
