Can I use GUICtrlCreateXXX in different GUIs?

Hi All,

 

I am trying to create a simple GUI but would like to have a picture in a child GUI.

I would like ideally not to stop creating the original GUI.

My question is:

during the process of adding Controls to the main GUI can I break out a to add a Gui/Control to a different GUI?

At the moment it seems as soon as I start:

GUICreate(.....)

whatever GUICtrlCreateXXX functions I call apply only to last GUI!!  

Thanks in advance!

Pablo.

Pablos544,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

Use GUISwitch to select the GUI in which you want to create the controls.

A bit OT hopefully it's relevant!! 

If you use Vim as your main editor you might be interested in this.  I'm still a beginner at AutoIt so some of it is gonna be missing but e.g today I added this GUISwitch() function I didn't know about.   All the GUICtrlCreateXXX functions are there.

Basically if you love using Vim it'll make a lot of sense.
