How to detect wich button was pressed on GUI

Recommended Posts

Skyrimfus

How can i determine wich button was pressed when I use more than one button, without delcaring the button in a variable.

Example:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 600, 600, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

For $i=0 to 5
     GUICtrlCreateButton("Button"&$i,0,$i*50,60,30)
Next



#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case 3 to 8
            MsgBox(0,0,"You pressed button:")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Store them in an array. Alternatively you can just use event mode and set a function per button

For $i = 0 to 5
    GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $i, 10, 10 + ($i * 25), 100, 20)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "ButtonFunc" & $i)
Next

Func ButtonFunc0()

EndFunc

Func ButtonFunc1()

EndFunc

Func ButtonFunc2()

EndFunc

Func ButtonFunc3()

EndFunc

Func ButtonFunc4()

EndFunc

Func ButtonFunc5()

EndFunc

I don't know how many buttons I will have, and I dont want to create a lot of functions. I simply need to know the control ID of the button that was pressed so I can use it in 1 function to calculate something

One option could be:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 600, 600, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Global $controlpressed[100]

For $i = 0 To 5
    $hCtrl = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $i, 0, $i * 50, 60, 30)
    $controlpressed[$hCtrl] = "Button" & $i
Next

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case 3 To 8
            MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button:" & $controlpressed[$nMsg])
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I recommend you up the way of InunoTaishou.
Or declare variables for buttons!

 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 600, 600, -1, -1)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")


For $i = 0 To 5
    GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $i, 0, $i * 50, 60, 30)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "ButtonFunc" & $i)
Next
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1 ; Keep program running!
    Sleep(100)
WEnd


Func ButtonFunc0()
    MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 0")
EndFunc   ;==>ButtonFunc0

Func ButtonFunc1()
    MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 1")
EndFunc   ;==>ButtonFunc1

Func ButtonFunc2()
    MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 2")
EndFunc   ;==>ButtonFunc2

Func ButtonFunc3()
    MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 3")
EndFunc   ;==>ButtonFunc3

Func ButtonFunc4()
    MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 4")
EndFunc   ;==>ButtonFunc4

Func ButtonFunc5()
    MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 5")
EndFunc   ;==>ButtonFunc5

Func _Exit()
    MsgBox(0, 0, "EXIT", 1)
    Exit 
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Not sure why you insist, but you can easily put them in an Array as well and loop through that array when a button is pressed.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 600, 600, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Global $hCtrl[100]
Global $NBottons = 5

For $i = 0 To $NBottons
    $hCtrl[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $i, 0, $i * 50, 60, 30)
Next

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case Else
            For $i = 0 To $NBottons
                If $hCtrl[$i] = $nMsg Then
                    MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button:" & "Button" & $i)
                EndIf
            Next
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Declare variables way like your script!

I'm not sure what he wants to do but this script might be needed for him!

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#Region ### START GUI section ### Form=
Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Form1", 600, 300, -1, -1)

Global Const $nBottons = 5
Global $hCtrl[$nBottons+1]

For $i = 0 To $nBottons
    $hCtrl[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $i, 0, $i * 50, 60, 30)
Next

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END  GUI section ###

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hCtrl[0]
            MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 0")
        ;==>Button 0
        Case $hCtrl[1]
            MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 1")
        ;==>Button 1
        Case $hCtrl[2]
            MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 2")
        ;==>Button 2
        Case $hCtrl[3]
            MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 3")
        ;==>Button 3
        Case $hCtrl[4]
            MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 4")
        ;==>Button 4
        Case $hCtrl[5]
            MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button: 5")
        ;==>Button 5
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I do not know what you mean!
But if possible, please do not care or pay attention to me!
If I'm wrong let me know!
Thank you!

Nearly the same than Jos, but using event mode  :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")

For $i = 0 To 5
    GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $i, 0, $i * 50, 60, 30)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "ButtonFunc")
Next
GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func ButtonFunc()
    MsgBox(0, 0, "You pressed button " & @GUI_CtrlId - 3)
EndFunc 

Func _Exit()
    Exit 
EndFunc

      Good evening everyone
      First, I want to apologize with you for the title not very clear, but I thought a little bit on which title to set at the thread, and this is the one that came in mind.
      Now, let me explain what I'm trying to understand.

      I am making an application ( with n clients ), with an SQLite Database, which has a Main form, and n sub-forms... 
      Since these sub-forms are called several times, because they are used to add or update records to the Database, I put the code that generates the GUI of these sub-forms in Functions.
      There are two sub-forms which are "treated" as two main forms, since even them have n sub-forms, which perform various tasks.
      Where am I stucked?

      For the Main form I created a Status Bar, in order to display messages ( add/delete/update/search results ), and it works perfectly with all the forms which don't have other sub-forms.
      For the two forms, which indeed have n sub-forms, I created two separated Status Bars, which are (re)created everytime I call the function that then displays the form.
      Practically, I can't set icons to these two Status Bars, and I don't know why.
      I'm really sorry that I don't feel clear enough, so, here you are an example of what I am saying.
      I recreated exactly what my script does:
      #include <GuiButton.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiStatusBar.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $frmSubForm, _ $txtSubFormField, _ $sbSubFormStatusBar, _ $objSB_IconError = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(109), _ $objSB_IconInformation = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(277) #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmMainForm = GUICreate("Main Form", 300, 300, -1, -1) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "ExitApplication") $sbMainStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmMainForm) $btnCreateSubForm = GUICtrlCreateButton("Create Sub Form", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "GenerateSubForm") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbMainStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbMainStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func ExitApplication() Exit EndFunc Func GenerateSubForm() #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmSubForm = GUICreate("Sub-Form", 300, 300, -1, -1, -1, -1, $frmMainForm) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "DeleteSubForm") $txtSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, 100, 20) $btnCheckSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Field", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "CheckSubFormField") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") $sbSubFormStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmSubForm) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbSubFormStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbSubFormStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### EndFunc Func DeleteSubForm() ; Declared Globally => $frmSubForm GUIDelete($frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $frmMainForm) EndFunc Func WriteToStatusBar($sbStatusBar, $objSB_Icon, $strText) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetIcon($sbStatusBar, 0, $objSB_Icon) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbStatusBar, $strText) ConsoleWrite("Icon Handle: " & $objSB_Icon & @CRLF) EndFunc Func CheckSubFormField() ; Declared Globally => $txtSubFormField If GUICtrlRead($txtSubFormField) = "" Then ; Declared Globally => $sbStatusBar WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconError, "Field NOK.") Else WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconInformation, "Field OK.") EndIf EndFunc The text is set, but icon is not.
      Could someone please tell me why?
      Thanks everyone in advance  

      Best Regards.

      Hi, everybody
      I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
      In other words:
          Any PC screen able to calculate the size
          To consider the Task bar size
          To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it

      Notes:
      In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
      Thanks a lot
      PS
      I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.
      #Region options, includes Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #EndRegion options, includes Global Const $nCols = 2, $nRows = 6, $nSpacer = 10, $nBtnWidth = 150, $nBtnHeight = 30 Global $xName = 0, $xID = 0 Global $nGUIWidth = ($nCols * $nBtnWidth) + (($nCols + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $nGUIHeight = ($nRows * $nBtnHeight) + (($nRows + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $hMainGUI = GUICreate("Calculated GUI", $nGUIWidth, $nGUIHeight, -1, -1) For $xRows = 1 to $nRows ;in this arrangement, tabbing is left to right, then next row For $xCols = 1 to $nCols ;reverse the order of this line with the prior line for top to bottom tabbing, then next col $xName += 1 $xID += 1 Global $Dummy = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $xName, _ ($nBtnWidth * ($xCols - 1)) + (($xCols - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ ($nBtnHeight* ($xRows - 1)) + (($xRows - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ $nBtnWidth, _ $nBtnHeight) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($xID+2, "Handler") Next Next GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CloseApp") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func CloseApp() Exit EndFunc Func Handler() MsgBox(0,0,"Button " & @GUI_CtrlId - 2) EndFunc
