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

      Hello.
      Drag option works only on parent window but as we can see on the parent gui is showed up child gui (on the right side with the color).
      Desired action is when we want to drag whole program we can also drag child gui and child gui will drag with parent gui.
      How to do this?
       
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NCHITTEST, "_NCHITTEST") $hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1) $cButton_0 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child 0", 10, 10, 80, 30) $cButton_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child 1", 10, 50, 80, 30) $cButton_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child 2", 10, 90, 80, 30) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) ; guis Global $hChild_[3] Global $countGUI = UBound($hChild_) - 1 ;MsgBox("","",$countGUI) ; licznik dla GUI Global $gui = 0 $hChild_[0] = GUICreate("Child 0", 350, 300, 150, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI) GUISetBkColor(0xFF0000) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild_[0]) $hChild_[1] = GUICreate("Child 1", 350, 300, 150, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI) GUISetBkColor(0x00FF00) GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[1]) $hChild_[2] = GUICreate("Child 2", 350, 300, 150, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI) GUISetBkColor(0x0000FF) GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[2]) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $cButton_0 _All_Hide() GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild_[0]) $gui = 0 Case $cButton_1 _All_Hide() GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild_[1]) $gui = 1 Case $cButton_2 _All_Hide() GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild_[2]) $gui = 2 EndSwitch WEnd Func _All_Hide() GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[0]) GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[1]) GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hChild_[2]) EndFunc Func _NCHITTEST($hWnd, $uMsg, $wParam, $lParam) If $hWnd = $hGUI Then Local $aPos = WinGetPos($hWnd) If Abs(BitAND(BitShift($lParam, 16),0xFFFF)- $aPos[1]) < 500 Then Return $HTCAPTION EndIf Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc

      Hello,
       
      I have a script which uses a GUI with two buttons. It gets shown and hidden., and pressing the buttons (including their hotkeys) highlights the button, making you able to press enter the next time.
      However, I don't want that.
       
      I've tried using WinActivate() to make enter do things on another program, but the enter is still tied to the AutoIT GUI (which still has the button highlighted).
       
      Here's the important part of my code:
      $MY_GUI = GUICreate("Check.exe", 400, 300, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 200), -500) WinSetOnTop($MY_GUI, "", 1) ;Keeps the window on the top. $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pass (Ctrl+P)", 40, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fail (Ctrl+F)", 240, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $GUIText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 10, 360, 230) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 13, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUICtrlSetData($GUIText, Execute($stepMessage[$step])) $showGUI = "True" GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While($showGUI = "True") $buttonPressed = GUIGetMsg() Switch $buttonPressed Case $Button1 ;Pass $pass = "True" $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) Case $Button2 ;Fail $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) While($message = "") $message = InputBox("Check.exe", "Please enter the reason the step failed." & @CRLF, "", "", 300, 200, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 150), -400) WEnd Return $message EndSwitch WEnd Local $pass = "False" ;Whether "Pass" or "Fail" was pressed. Local $failLog = xxxfunc($pass) ;Returns a message to log if the step failed. ##THIS CALLS THE CODE SNIPPET ABOVE## FileWrite($file, _Now() & ": Step " & $step & getStatus($pass) & "and took " & Ceiling(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000) & " seconds." & @CRLF) If($failLog <> "") Then FileWrite($file, "Logged comment: " & $failLog & @CRLF) EndIf WinActivate("[TITLE:ProgramName]") ;Hotkeys: HotKeySet("^{p}", "pressPass") HotKeySet("^{f}", "pressFail") Func pressPass() $buttonPressed = $Button1 EndFunc Func pressFail() $buttonPressed = $Button2 EndFunc  
      The GUI's button/hotkey pressing works correctly.
      The same WinActivate code works in another script of mine.
      Together, WinActivate is not take "Active" away from the GUI's last-pressed button. How do I fix this?
       
      Thank you in advance.

      Dear AutoIT Community.
      I am currently working on a program that will display lots of images in a scroll down GUI.
      I create the GUI based on the number of images, which works fine.
      But all images I place using GuiCtrlCreatePic above a threshold of around 32000 pixels (cant say exactly) are placed at negative locations and finally will reach 0 again
      and will then populate on top of the images placed there before.
      For $i = 1 To $Images[0] ; Get picture dimensions $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ImgRep & $Images[$i]) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) ; Resize & place images in GUI $Pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic($ImgRep & $Images[$i], $Spacer, Round($yPos, 0), $MaxImgWidth, $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX)) $yPos = $yPos + $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX) + $Spacer $log = $log & "|" & $yPos $currentlut = $Images[1] Next I have found a limit at 32767 pixels for some GUI elements when googling around.
      Can someone tell me how to circumvent that?
      thanks!
      cheers
