How to create a child windows

8 posts in this topic

I have a mainform with a ListviewControl. The ListView contains data from my SQL Server. My idea is that when you find what you are looking for, in the listview, I pick it by pressing the enter button and then show the content on a child window with some control.

So my questions are:

How do you pick the content in the listview with either enter button or the mouse?

How do you create a child windows with control?

Global $idListview, $idOKay


_FormCreate()
_Main()


Func _FormCreate()

You code a second GuiCreate and set the parent paramenter to the handle of the parent GUI.
Check example 2 in the help file for GUICreate.

 While 1
     Switch GUIGetMsg()
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
             Exit
     EndSwitch
 WEnd

here is a very basic example, learn and modify according  to your need.

to hide you can use something like that

 if  $whatever then
                   GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hTab_Win0)
                   GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hTab_Win1)
                   
               Else
                   GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hTab_Win0)
                   GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hTab_Win1)
                 
                EndIf

I have now created a childform, but why is my mainform not disabled?

When my childform is active I can press the [x] on my mainform and then my application is closed.

 

Global $idListview, $idOKay, $hMainForm, $idNewEntry, $idEditEntry, $aMsg, $hNewEntry, $idNewOKay, $idNewCancel

    ; Add columns
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($idListview, "Computername", 100,2)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($idListview, "Tkt No.", 100,2)

I found that I should use GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $hMainForm) instead of GUICtrlSetState($hMainForm, $GUI_DISABLE)

      Hello Everyone! 
      I'm attempting to create a checklist app that performs other functions. For performance, I would like to check the box, then have the button to the right enabled. After that button is pressed, the second checkbox is enabled, and ready to be checked, allowing the second button to be pressed. After the second button is pressed, the completion/exit button is enabled/shown. I have my code that currently creates the GUI, creates the checkbox, but when you check it it enables the button and the next checkbox. Can't seem to figure out a Case for GUISetOnEvent. Any assistance would be appreciated!
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Below is the GUI interface _DeploymentProcess() Func _DeploymentProcess() $aStep1 = GUICreate("Deployment Process", 475, 345, 500, 175) $CBcStep1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("1. Step 01.", 15, 25, 300, 25) $BTNS1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 01", 365, 25, 90, 20) $CBcStep2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("2.

      Hi everyone,

      Is there a way to determine whether the script that is running, is already running, without using;
       
      If WinExists ?

      Or is there a way to use "If WinExists" to determine the script itself?

      The reason I am asking this is because if I want someone to run the .Exe I have and they rename it to whatever they want, how could I then determine in the script to check if there's already an .Exe open, or the script itself is already open?

      Should I use Class, or how do I achieve this?

      Thanks in advance.

      Id like to build a little helpertool for my boss in office but i dont know how to sart it.
      thats no complicated task. im working for an insurancecenter and have to search the customers in different orders and different tags.
      due to my boss is old and not really commen with pc he saves the customers without system.
      eg, customer andreas statham got an insurenca for his car then i got to search for
      andreas statham car, andreas car statham, car andreas statham, statham andreas car, statham car andreas, car statham andreass etc to find all the files from this customer in the harddrive.
      some customers also are fmiliarnamed in one file like andreas statam and monika rog are married an both got a carinsurance then i got to earch for
      andreas statham monika rog car, andreas statham monika car rog,.... this can take real long to find the right customer if i do it from hand.
      how can i realise this someone in here got an excamlple script or has any sugestion?

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.
