Radios and Checkboxes in the same window

Recommended Posts



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

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

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

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

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

            Case $iLogCheckbox
                if _IsChecked($iLogCheckbox) Then
                    $bLogChecked = True
                    $bLogChecked = False

    ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls.

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)


    Local $idMsg
    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        $idMsg = GUIGetMsg()
            Case $idMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            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

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?

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)

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)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hMain)

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

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

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

Thanks for trying!

      Hello everyone,
      First, watch the screenshot I attached:

      The background beneath the radios is that a value is subtracted from Player 1, and added to player 2, in the case of the screenshot I made.
      You can see that I created 2 radio groups. On the upper part, radio 1 and 2, and on the lower part radio 5 and 6. Now I automated the buttons in such a way ,that when in group 1 player 1 is selected, player 2 in group 2 automatically gets checked for you. Same thing when checking player 2 in the upper part: player 1 gets checked on the lower part. I did this because there is no reason selecting player 1 or 2 twice, because nothing will change. Now that runs smoothly using this script:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio6),1) And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5),1) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio6,1) If GUICtrlRead($Radio2)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5),1) And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio6),1) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5,1) If GUICtrlRead($Radio5)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio2),1) And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio1),1) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio2,1) If GUICtrlRead($Radio6)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio1),1) And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio2),1) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio1,1) But there is a problem when clicking on a radio in group 2, the lower one. It is very hard to check one, because for some reason the radio get's deselected instantly most of the time. I already tried to prevent it by using the second BitAND() in the codes I shared (It doesn't check the radio automatically if the other radio in the other group is selected, meaning that the user want's to switch the radios). But it didn't work.
      Does somebody know why you sometimes can't check radio 5 or 6 (the lower part)?

      Hi guys! I have these checkbox that I'm trying to click on. They have the same inner-text string but a different ID. Sometime there can be as many as 4 checkbox
      with the same string but the ID is always different. I tried a few methods down below but I'm unable to make any real results. Any suggestions or solutions I would
      appreciate it very much.
      <ul><li class="cx-list-item-wrapper" data-day="Aug 2 2018 07:27:37 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)"><div class=""><div class="cx-list-item-container"><div class="cx-list-item cx-item-icon-2 pointer-cursor"><div class="cx-item-contents cx-item-time col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 675 -->Morning<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 676 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 678 -->OTHER<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 679 -- >&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 681 -->8:30 AM<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 682 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 684 -->10:30 AM<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 685 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text -- ></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 687 -->SRV<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 688 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div></div></div><div class="pull-right cx-listitem-chk"><div><input id="cx_checkbox1" class="cx-fa-chk cx-selfschedule-chk" value="on" type="checkbox"><label for="cx_checkbox1"></label></div></div></div></li><li class="cx-list-item-wrapper" data-day="Aug 2 2018 07:27:37 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)"><div class=""><div class="cx-list-item-container"><div class="cx-list-item cx-item-icon-2 pointer-cursor"><div class="cx-item-contents cx-item-time col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 698 -- >Morning<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 699 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 701 -->OTHER<!-- /react- text --><!-- react-text: 702 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 704 -->8:30 AM<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 705 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-2"><!-- react-text: 707 -->2:30 PM<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 708 -- >&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div><div class="cx-item-contents col-md-1"><!-- react-text: 710 -->SRV<!-- /react-text --><!-- react-text: 711 -->&nbsp;<!-- /react-text --></div></div></div><div class="pull-right cx-listitem-chk"><div><input id="cx_checkbox2" class="cx-fa-chk cx-selfschedule-chk" value="on" type="checkbox"><label for="cx_checkbox2"></label></div></div></div></li></ul> I tried the _IETagNameGetCollection() but it only check the box but doesn't fire the event! And I'm unable to submit that without a click action.
      Func _Box1() $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id == "cx_checkbox1" Then $oInput.checked = true Next Sleep(10) ToolTip('box1') EndFunc ;==>_Box1 I also tried click by text.The boxes do get check by a click but the problem with that is it will select every box that has the same string. I'm allowed only to check 1 box selection at a time per day for the submit button to work.  Any preference to select only the second box and bypass the other?
      Func _Morning() For $a In _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") If StringInStr(_IEPropertyGet($a, "innerText"), "Morning") Then _IEAction($a, "click") EndIf Next Sleep(10) ToolTip('Morning selected') EndFunc ;==>Morning The last method I tried was _IEGetObjById(). It doesn't click or respond to the checkbox.
      Func _Click1() $oChk = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "cx_checkbox1") _IEAction($oChk, 'click') Sleep(20) ToolTip('box1') EndFunc ;==>_Click1

      Good morning everyone

      I was playing a little bit with "Screen Capture" UDF, and I was trying to make a "Window" capture, but, since I made a GUI which through I fire the event "Capture", my GUI is captured as well, and I don't want to
      This is the line of code that makes the capture:
      _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd($strScreenCaptureFileName, $objActiveWindow, 0, 0, -1, -1, False) And these are the lines of code which select the "active" window:
      Local $objCurrentWindow = 9999 If _IsPressed("01") Then $objCurrentWindow = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]") If $objCurrentWindow <> $objMyGUI Then $objActiveWindow = $objCurrentWindow EndIf EndIf Sorry If I made stupid mistakes
      Thanks in advance.
