Dummy Control Not Triggering

4 posts in this topic

I wanted a quick way to identify screen coordinates and created a simple form.  I also wanted to collect the information. Goal was to move the mouse to different locations, hit a key combination and have the program  collect info for that position and write it to a file.

I couldn't use a button on the form and HotKeys was not recommended (according to some posts I'd read on here).

I discovered GUIAccelerators but I'm stuck on what triggers the accelerator key.  I've looked at the help file for GUISetAccelerators which references GUICtrlCreateDummy and used the code from both of those.  I'm not getting any errors and everything seems to run okay except when I press Ctrl + [F3] nothing is captured. 

This is a work in progress so there's extra code that I haven't cleaned up yet.

Any help would be appreciated.

OGW,

When I run your code I get a file containing this

Window Title     : Coordinates
Window Text      : XPos:
849
YPos:
629
Window Title:
Coordinates
Handle:
0x000000000004024E
Control ID:
Button1
Control Text:
Exit
Control Pos:

Exit

Window Handle    : 0x000000000004024E
Control Refer    : Button1
Control Text     : Exit
Control Handle   : 0x00000000000501F8
Control Position : 
Mouse Position   : 849,629
=====================================================

Check where your working dir is.

I discovered GUIAccelerators but I'm stuck on what triggers the accelerator key

in the example ( https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/GUISetAccelerators.htm ) they use buttons.
The way I make my buttons is:

Local $sKey1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ctrl F3", 0, 0, 1, 1)
GUICtrlSetState($sKey1,$GUI_HIDE)

Hope this helps :)

Kylomas,

I changed @workingdir to @scriptdir (which is what it should have been in the first place.)  But still not triggering or creating a file. Weird that it would work on your computer and not on mine. 

Thank you for testing it.

Argumentum,

Thanks. Good idea. I've done the same thing in VB and VBA when I needed fields in a form to hold values but didn't need the fields to be visible.

Bill

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx

      Hello. Im trying to make my scripts safe - unnable to decompile. I search for obfuscators and other security methods but the search has come to nothing.
      Then one guy gave that idea below. If I rightly understood this idea lets we talk about example program with this secutiy method.
      Program have two parts, first is only login gui and the second part is the main program Second part (main program) is uploaded on ftp server lets say that on http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 So we have the first gui with login, we put correctly login and pass and this is the moment when code from http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 will be downloaded and executed Finally main program will be appear This is the similiar way like new games are protected by cracking.
      I have few questions in this moment about this:
      Is something like that even possible to do with the autoit? First part of program (login gui) must have somewhere given that link to download the rest of code - http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 to make it execute. As we know this first part of program is easy able to hack and retrieve this web url http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 where located is main part of program. Is the way to encrypt or secure it? If only code will be stored in .php we know it cannot be previewed. So it could for example get code from .php file instead of .au3 I know that methods works in other languages (I dont know exactly how) thats becouse I only speculates, maybe something may looks different in these solution? Other way would be compiling second part of code on web server (there are available web autoit servers) maybe this way is possible? Tell me anything U know about this ideas and if its even possible to achieve.
      Thanks for ur any response, advice or thoughts
