Taking user input and calling a function from the input

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong with this code?
I'm trying to take user input and then run a function with the same name, but it's not calling the function.

So in the below after pressing Shift+F8 I would enter the text (without quotes) "testFunc".
As you can see I've also tried this with IF statements, I'm new to using Switch/Case.

HotKeySet("+{F8}", RunManually)

Func RunManually()
   ;Use a case statement with 1 hot key and an InputBox to manually run functions
   $funcName = InputBox("Which Func to Run?", "Enter the name of the function to run")
   MsgBox(0, "Entered value", $funcName)
   ;If $funcName = testFunc Then testFunc()
   ;If $funcName = test2Func Then test2Func()
   Switch $funcName
      Case testFunc
         MsgBox(0, "Calling", "Calling Function")
         testFunc()
         MsgBox(0, "Called", "Function call finished")
      Case test2Func
         MsgBox(0, "Calling", "Calling Function")
         test2Func()
         MsgBox(0, "Called", "Function call finished")
   EndSwitch
EndFunc

While 1
   ;testFunc()
   Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func testFunc()
      MsgBox(0, "func running", "Seems to work!")
EndFunc

Func test2Func()
      MsgBox(0, "func 2 running", "2 Seems to work!")
EndFunc

Thanks!

Use quotation marks you are comparing against an String value which is what InputBox get...

HotKeySet("+{F8}", RunManually)

Func RunManually()
   ;Use a case statement with 1 hot key and an InputBox to manually run functions
   $funcName = InputBox("Which Func to Run?", "Enter the name of the function to run")
   MsgBox(0, "Entered value", $funcName)
   
   ;If $funcName = "testFunc" Then
    ;   testFunc()
   ;EndIf
   ;If $funcName = "test2Func" Then
       ;test2Func()
   ;EndIf
   
   Switch $funcName
      Case "testFunc"
         MsgBox(0, "Calling", "Calling Function")
         testFunc()
         MsgBox(0, "Called", "Function call finished")
     Case "test2Func"
       MsgBox(0, "Calling", "Calling Function")
      test2Func()
         MsgBox(0, "Called", "Function call finished")
   EndSwitch
EndFunc

While 1
   ;testFunc()
   Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func testFunc()
      MsgBox(0, "func running", "Seems to work!")
EndFunc

Func test2Func()
      MsgBox(0, "func 2 running", "2 Seems to work!")
EndFunc

Note both versions works, the one with the IF and the one with the Case...

      Software Installer
      version 1.2 - Jan 2, 2021
      Hello, everyone!
      Today, I present to you a new version of Software Installer. This script is designed to be used on CDs/DVDs/USB drives where you put software in a folder (called Software) and you can select multiple software and it will automate installing your selected software one after another with little to no interaction. To do this, you simply need to configure each software with a silent switch (most software have one or more). You can put your software in categories to organize them on the main GUI.
      Screenshot:

      The major new things concerning this project:
      Added a Detect button, where the software tries to detect what kind of installer is used, saving you from having to find out on your own. It's not perfect, but it detects many common installer types. Added a Installers.db file for installers that were not created by the most common methods (Inno Setup, NSIS, etc). I will continue to add to this file. If you have any that you find that you would like to contribute, please PM. I would very much appreciate your help. This version searches for all subfolders now and shows .exe and .msi files that you may not want to see on the main screen. Therefore, I have added the option to "Hide This Item On Main GUI". Added the ability to install up to 2 software before and up to 2 software or registry entries after installing your selected software. This will allow you to install things like service packs, DotNet, etc. (prerequisites). And it will allow you to apply your licensing information through registry entries or patches/updates. If you want the full package (source code, compiled .exe (both 32/64 bit), changelog, installers.db, icon, etc.), you can download it here:
      https://www.filefactory.com/file/2o2enxmm73qo/Software_Installer_v.1.2.zip
      I have a lifetime account at FileFactory, so the link should never die and you do NOT need an account or pay them money to download. Simply choose the free/slow download option. The file is small and will still download fairly quickly. If you have trouble downloading it, PM me. I have the previous versions of this script, but they are inferior to this version, so if you want the older versions, PM me and I will provide them.
      If you just want the bare minimum, the script, installers.db and changelog are attached on this forum below.
      Enjoy!

      Hi, here are few functions for the ListBox.
      I have searched the forum, but most of the functions are for listview, so i took one example code from melba23 (clear selection) and
      wrote few more functions. (Because my current project needs them).
       
      These functions work only on a Multi-selection ListBox . 
      Edit: Only 1 function does not work with single selection box.
      The functions do: Clear Selection, Delete Selected items, Invert Selection, Move selected items up and down.
       The example code has 2 Listboxes. The selected items on the left ListBox can be moved up and down. The right Listbox has buttons for the other functions.
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListBox.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $singlesel = 0, $iMsgBoxAnswer = 0 ;MsgBox features: Title=Yes, Text=Yes, Buttons=Yes and No, Icon=Question, Modality=Task Modal $iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(8228, "Choose Listbox selecton type", "Yes for single, No for multi selection box") If $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 Then $singlesel = 1 ;Yes Local $BL_1,$BL_2,$BR_1,$BR_2,$BR_3,$BR_4,$BR_5,$BR_6 Global $hForm1 = GUICreate("Listbox test", 349, 287) $LB_1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 6, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $LBS_MULTIPLESEL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) If $singlesel = 1 Then $LB_2 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 179, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) Else $LB_2 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 179, 40, 157, 244, BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY, $LBS_MULTIPLESEL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL)) $BR_3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Reverse Sel", 272, 22, 68, 17) EndIf $BL_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Up", 20, 3, 35, 18) $BL_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Down", 60, 3, 35, 18) $BR_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Up", 200, 3, 35, 18) $BR_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Down", 240, 3, 35, 18) $BR_4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Clear Sel", 217, 22, 52, 17) $BR_5 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 175, 22, 40, 17) $BR_6 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Populate", 290, 3, 50, 18) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) For $x = 0 To 50 If $x <= 10 Then GUICtrlSetData($LB_1, $x & " test", 0) GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, $x & " Test", 0) Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $BL_1 $a = Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_1, -1) If $a > -1 Then WinSetTitle($hForm1, "", "Moved items: " & $a) Case $BL_2 $a = Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_1, 1) If $a > -1 Then WinSetTitle($hForm1, "", "Moved items: " & $a) Case $BR_1 Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_2, -1) Case $BR_2 Listbox_ItemMoveUD($LB_2, 1) Case $BR_3 Listbox_ReverseSelection($LB_2) Case $BR_4 Listbox_ClearSelection($LB_2) Case $BR_5 Listbox_DeleteSelectedItems($LB_2) Case $BR_6 ;Populate GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, "") ; Clears the listbox For $x = 0 To 50 GUICtrlSetData($LB_2, $x & " Test", 0) Next EndSwitch WEnd ;note $hLB_ID - is the Listbox id Func Listbox_DeleteSelectedItems($hLB_ID) Local $aSel = _GUICtrlListBox_GetSelItems($hLB_ID) ;Get selected items Local $i, $slb = 0, $y, $x If $aSel[0] = 0 Then ;If the array is empty, there is no selection, or it is a single selection listbox For $x = 0 To _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($hLB_ID) - 1 $y = _GUICtrlListBox_GetSel($hLB_ID, $x) If $y = True Then $slb = 1 _GUICtrlListBox_DeleteString($hLB_ID, $x) ;Perform a delete on single sel.

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.20 contains 197 functions divided into these topics:
      window, desktop and monitor mouse and GUI GUI controls including graphical buttons (jpg, png) logics and mathematics include constants string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info Change log and files section  on the PAL website (SourceForge).
      A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.

      I want to use the winsock overlapped/completion routine method of i/o, but how do I get the pointer to my user function.  I know it is possible because when using the old method of windows messages, the user function name was used instead of a pointer.

      Hi All,

      MAIN QUESTION:
      Is it possible to Call specific function within a GUI

      So I have a script with multiple functions although I don't want to use every function every time.
      My Idea is to create a simple GUI which allows me to select what functions I want to use then run the funtions by clicking a button.
      I have already made a GUI which allows me to select specific .exe's I would like to run after selection it runs the .exe one by one.
      This script is on my work laptops and cannot access it right now.
       
      Who can help me with this?
      GUIcreate
      Func1 
      Func2
      Func3
      Then have a boxes which allows me to select the specif Func.(I used GUIChecked and Unchecked in my other script)
      Then a button which executes/calls the selected functions
