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)

      I'm trying to check the status of the checkbox for sharing a folder that you see when you right-click on a  folder, go to the sharing tab, then click on Advanced Sharing.

      The check box is labelled Share this folder, and looking at it using AutoIt window info, I get the following information..
      >>>> Control <<<<
      Class:    Button
      Instance:    1
      ClassnameNN:    Button1
      Advanced (Class):    [CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]
      ID:    1020
      Text:    &Share this folder
      Position:    15, 16
      Size:    306, 13
      ControlClick Coords:    57, 4
      Style:    0x50010003
      ExStyle:    0x00000004
      Handle:    0x0000000000420A52
      I'm using the following code..
      If ControlCommand("Sharing","","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]","IsChecked","") = 0 Then
          MsgBox(0, "", "not checked")
          MsgBox(0, "", "checked")
      But this insists the check box isn't checked when it is.  I have also tried ControlCommand("Sharing","","[ID:1020]","IsChecked","") and ControlCommand("Sharing","","Share this folder","IsChecked","") and ControlCommand("Sharing","","&Share this folder","IsChecked",""), with no joy.
      Any ideas?

      I'm trying to use some inputboxes as radio buttons.
      This code seems to work ok, but don't know if there's is a better 'option'
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiConstants.au3> GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "WM_COMMAND") Global $aInput[4] $hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500) $aInput[0] = GUICtrlCreateInput("Some text 1a", 10, 10, 200, 24) $aInput[1] = GUICtrlCreateInput("Some text 1b", 10, 40, 200, 24) $aInput[2] = GUICtrlCreateInput("Some text 2a", 10, 80, 200, 24) $aInput[3] = GUICtrlCreateInput("Some text 2b", 10, 110, 200, 24) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd Func WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $msg, $wParam, $lParam) Local $nNotifyCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) ; high word Local $nID = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF) ; low word Local $hCtrl = $lParam Switch $nID Case $aInput[0] Switch $nNotifyCode Case $EN_SETFOCUS GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[0], 0x98FB98) GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[1], 0xD3D3D3) EndSwitch Case $aInput[1] Switch $nNotifyCode Case $EN_SETFOCUS GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[0], 0xD3D3D3) GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[1], 0x98FB98) EndSwitch Case $aInput[2] Switch $nNotifyCode Case $EN_SETFOCUS GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[2], 0x98FB98) GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[3], 0xD3D3D3) EndSwitch Case $aInput[3] Switch $nNotifyCode Case $EN_SETFOCUS GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[2], 0xD3D3D3) GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[3], 0x98FB98) EndSwitch EndSwitch ; Proceed the default Autoit3 internal message commands. ; You also can complete let the line out. ; !!! But only 'Return' (without any value) will not proceed ; the default Autoit3-message in the future !!! Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc ;==>WM_COMMAND Would you recommend using _WinAPI_GetFocus instead?

      Hi everyone.
      I want to ask about this : 
      I want it runs from 1 to 100 and It opens 10 firefox profiles then access youtube. After I close a firefox window, the loop runs and wait for another window close until loop ends
      I have a loop like this.
      Func launch() Local $from = Int(GUICtrlRead($input1)) Local $to = Int(GUICtrlRead($input2)) If $to <> "" Then While $from <= $to Local $profile = $to _RunDos("start firefox.exe -p " & $profile & " -no-remote youtube.com") $to=$to+1 WEnd Else Local $profile = $to _RunDos("start firefox.exe -p " & $profile & " -no-remote youtube.com") EndIf EndFunc Is there any solution?
      Thank you!

      I was wondering if there was a library or something which provides the capability to Send() to inactive windows, and I know what you're thinking, I could just use ControlSend(); the reason I can't use that in this situation is because I need to hold down keys for specific prolonged periods of time. Also activating the window, Send()ing then de-activating the window isn't really an option here, I need the target window to always be in the background. I've looked around the forums for an adequate amount of time and didn't find anything useful, perhaps because the threads were all 10 years old, nevertheless, if anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
