Radios and Checkboxes in the same window

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Hi,

I am maybe an intermediate AutoIt script writer, but have no experience creating GUIs.

I have a script with two functions. One for Checkboxes and another with radio buttons. Each function creates it's own window.

I'd like to use one window with both checkboxes and radio buttons.

I pulled samples from AutoIt Help and other places and worked it into this: (RadioCheck still uses the example Case and MsgBoxes. I will clean this up soon)

Func CheckOptions()
    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("SGX4CP Options", 275, 250)

    ; Create a checkbox control.
    Local $iLoopCheckbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Loop", 10, 10, 185, 25)
    Local $iFullScreenCheckbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Fullscreen", 10, 40, 185, 25)
    Local $iRestartPlaybackCheckbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Restart Playback from Sleep", 10, 70, 185, 25)
    GUICtrlSetState($iRestartPlaybackCheckbox, $GUI_CHECKED)

    Local $iDisableSleepCheckbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Disable Sleep", 10, 100, 185, 25)
    Local $iLogCheckbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Show Log", 10, 130, 185, 25)
    GUICtrlSetState($iLogCheckbox, $GUI_CHECKED)
    Local $idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Next", 110, 220, 85, 25)

    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $idClose
                ExitLoop

            Case $iLoopCheckbox
                If _IsChecked($iLoopCheckbox) Then
                    $bLoopChecked = True
                Else
                    $bLoopChecked = False
               EndIf

            Case $iFullScreenCheckbox
                if _IsChecked($iFullScreenCheckbox) Then
                    $bFullScreenChecked = True
                Else
                    $bFullScreenChecked = False
                EndIf

            Case $iRestartPlaybackCheckbox
                if _IsChecked($iRestartPlaybackCheckbox) Then
                    $bRestartPlaybackChecked = True
                Else
                    $bRestartPlaybackChecked = False
                EndIf

            Case $iDisableSleepCheckbox
                if _IsChecked($iDisableSleepCheckbox) Then
                    $bDisableSleepChecked = True
                Else
                    $bDisableSleepChecked = False
                EndIf

            Case $iLogCheckbox
                if _IsChecked($iLogCheckbox) Then
                    $bLogChecked = True
                Else
                    $bLogChecked = False
                EndIf
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

    ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls.
    GUIDelete($hGUI)
EndFunc

Func RadioCheck()
    GUICreate("Select Test",300,180) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    Local $idRadio1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Loop Forever", 10, 10)
    Local $idRadio2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Play each video 3 times", 10, 40)
    Local $idRadio3 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Play each video separately", 10, 70)
    GUICtrlSetState($idRadio1, $GUI_CHECKED)
    Local $idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start Test", 120,100)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    Local $idMsg
    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        $idMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $idMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $idMsg = $idRadio1 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($idRadio1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, 'Info:', 'The app will run forever, playing each video once, then looping back to the first video.')
                $bTestSelectForever = True
            Case $idMsg = $idRadio2 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($idRadio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, 'Info:', 'Each video will loop 3 times then move to the next video.')
                $bTestSelect3Times = True
            Case $idMsg = $idRadio3 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($idRadio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, 'Info:', 'Player opens, first video plays, player closes. Player opens, second video plays, player closes, etc.')
                $bTestSelectSingleVideo = True
        EndSelect
    WEnd
EndFunc

I would like to combine the checkbox "Loop" and the radio button $idRadio2. Radio2 requires Loop to be checked.

I planned to remove the Loop checkbox and only enable it if Radio2 is selected.

Can I combine these two functions into one with one window with both Checkboxes and Radio Buttons?

Thanks

I'm sorry but it's really difficult to try and understand what you're trying to explain in your post (it's probably not you, pretty sure it's me). I think you mean you want a checkbox or a radio to only be available if another radio/checkbox is selected? Something like this?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $hMain = GUICreate("", 400, 400)
Global $rdo1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio 1", 10, 10, 100, 20)
Global $rdo2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio 2", 10, 35, 100, 20)
Global $aCheckBox1[4]
Global $aCheckBox2[10]

For $i = 0 to UBound($aCheckBox1) - 1
    $aCheckBox1[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("[" & $i & "] Checkbox for Radio 1", 120, 10 + ($i * 20), 150, 20)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
Next

For $i = 0 to UBound($aCheckBox2) - 1
    $aCheckBox2[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("[" & $i & "] Checkbox for Radio 2", 120, 10 + ($i * 20), 150, 20)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
Next

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hMain)

While (True)
    Switch (GUIGetMsg())
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $rdo1
            ToggleCheckBoxes($aCheckBox2, $GUI_HIDE)
            ToggleCheckBoxes($aCheckBox1, $GUI_SHOW)
        Case $rdo2
            ToggleCheckBoxes($aCheckBox1, $GUI_HIDE)
            ToggleCheckBoxes($aCheckBox2, $GUI_SHOW)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func ToggleCheckBoxes($aCheckBoxes, $iState)
    For $i = 0 to UBound($aCheckBoxes) - 1
        GUICtrlSetState($aCheckBoxes[$i], $iState)
    Next
EndFunc

No, I want both Checkboxes and Radio buttons in the same window. I think I have a solution though.

Thanks for trying!

      Hi,
      I am automating the testing of a video player. I search a file for ".mp4" and want to create a GUI with radio buttons to select what video to play. The number of videos can change based on the user's library so this must be created automatically.  I have searched for how to accomplish this and there are several posts out there that help a little but I can't figure out the solution. I pulled the offending code from my main script and created the file below to make this easier to read. I am sure one of our experts here can help!
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> #include <array.au3> #include <File.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Local $sMediaFile = "D:\MediaFiles\MediaFiles.txt" Local $iStrReturn = 0 Local $aText Local $aArrayFile Local $iMax = 6 ;Default number of Videos - 1 for the array counter Local $aVideoName[$iMax] = [0] Local $sCheckBox1 Local $iT = 0, $iVideoCount = 0, $iCount Local $ix = 0 Local $iy = 0 Local $idClose1 Const $iL = 10 ; Count from Left for GUI so all buttons line up ;~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ; ; Read a list of video file names and create a GUI with Radio Buttons to select a single video. ; Problem: We don't know how many video names will be in the text file, so we can't hard code Case Statements & their variables ; Put the Video File Names into an Array _FileReadToArray($sMediaFile, $aArrayFile) For $a = 1 To $aArrayFile[0] ; Step through the array looking for .mp4 If StringInStr($aArrayFile[$a], ".mp4") Then $iVideoCount = $iVideoCount + 1 $aText = StringSplit($aArrayFile[$a],"\\") ; This video player reads double backslashes For $a1 = 1 to $aText[0] ; Check that the array is big enough If StringInStr($aText[$a1], ".mp4") Then ;MsgBox(0,"","Video is " & $aText[$a1]) If UBound($aVideoName) = $iVideoCount Then ; Resize the array when $iCount is equal to the element count in the array to prevent subscript error ReDim $aVideoName[$aVideoName[0] + $iMax] EndIf $aVideoName[$iVideoCount] = $aText[$a1]; add data to new index element $aVideoName[0] = $a1 ; update the index count for future reference ; The idea is to create a GUI width to accommodate long video file names $it = StringLen($aVideoName[$iVideoCount]) If $iT > $ix Then $ix = $iT EndIf EndIf Next EndIf Next ; Move backwards through the array deleting blank rows For $iCount = UBound($aVideoName) - 1 To 0 Step -1 If $aVideoName[$iCount] = "" Then _ArrayDelete($aVideoName, $iCount) EndIf Next ;~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ; ; Create the GUI - Names and Radio Button counts will vary - How do I do this?

      I created 3 radio buttons and when the script is run, the selected buttons display the text on the right of the actual button.  Also, it appears like the radio button occupies space around it, as it obscures part of the other controls when I hover the mouse around it.  I would like to group the buttons closer together and put other controls on the right of them.  I also wanted to make the button text display on the left side of the button.
      Here is my test code:
      #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6 Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1) ; ESC closes GUI? (0 = no, 1 = yes) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) OnAutoItExitRegister("ExitStageLeft") Opt("GUIEventOptions", 1) ;0=default, 1=just notification, 2=GuiCtrlRead tab index _Main() Func _Main() GUICreate("test", 300, 300, -1, -1, -1, -1) GUIStartGroup() local $x = 50, $y = 10, $w = 40, $h = 15,$spcY = 15 GUICtrlCreateRadio("", $x, $y, $w, $h) GUICtrlCreateRadio("ABC", $x, $y + ($spcY*1), $w, $h) GUICtrlCreateRadio("", $x, $y + ($spcY*2), $w, $h) GUIStartGroup() GUICtrlCreateInput("An Input Control", 70, 10, 110, 30) GUICtrlCreateInput("Another Input Control", 10, 73, 110, 20) GUISetOnEvent(-3, 'ExitStageLeft') GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While (1) Sleep(251) WEnd EndFunc Func ExitStageLeft() Exit EndFunc I want "ABC" to display on the left of the 2nd radio button.

      I am trying to get the results of a radio button selection. I have tried implementing sample scripts but to no avail.
      Can someone tell / show me what I am doing wrong?
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $bSelect1 Local $bSelect2 Local $bSelect3 SelectButton() ;The results of SelectButton is not being returned MsgBox(0,"","Select1 is "& $bSelect1 & ".

      Hi guys,
      I'm trying to move and resize a program call CPUID HWMonitor (http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html) but WinMove() doesn't work. Can someone tell me how to get this to work for this program? I've successfully moved other programs using WinMove(), and I've used WinGetTitle ("[ACTIVE]") to confirm the title is correct. WinActivate("CPUID HWMonitor") does work.
      If I run the following code nothing happens, doesn't move or resize, but AutoIt doesn't complain about the code either:
      WinMove("CPUID HWMonitor", 0, 0, 475, 715) The class changes every time the program opens (and I've nevery had a lot of success with classes tbh, bit hit and miss for me).
      Thanks all!
