How are Radio Button Selections returned?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

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 & ". Select2 is "& $bSelect2 & ". Select3 is "& $bSelect3 & ".")

Func SelectButton()
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("SGX4CP Tests", 300, 300)
    GUISetState()

    Local $bSelect1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 1", 10, 160)
    Local $bSelect2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 2", 10, 190)
    Local $bSelect3 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 3", 10, 220)

    ; Set TestSelectForever as the default radio button
    GUICtrlSetState($bSelect1, $GUI_CHECKED)
    Local $idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 120,250)
    Local $idMsg
    While 1
        $idMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select

             Case $idMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $idMsg = $idClose
                ExitLoop

            Case $idMsg = $bSelect1  And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($bSelect1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
                MsgBox(0,"","Select1")
            Case $idMsg = $bSelect2 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($bSelect2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
                MsgBox(0,"","Select2")
            Case $idMsg = $bSelect3 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($bSelect3), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED
                MsgBox(0,"","Select3")

;           GUICtrlRead($hGUI)
            EndSelect
        WEnd
        MsgBox(0,"","Select1 is "& $bSelect1 & ". Select2 is "& $bSelect2 & ". Select3 is "& $bSelect3 & ".")   ; Why is this returning numbers?
EndFunc

The only "error" I see is the double definition of the variables $bSelectx.
Use:

$bSelect1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 1", 10, 160)
$bSelect2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 2", 10, 190)
$bSelect3 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 3", 10, 220)

Hi Jibberish,

First I took your Start Button and wrapped an If Else Endif statement into it, to read the results of the Radio button.

I've also cleaned your script up. Took away your function. No need to wrap it in a func.

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

$hGUI = GUICreate("SGX4CP Tests", 300, 300, 192, 124)
$bSelect1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 1", 10, 160)
$bSelect2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 2", 10, 190)
$bSelect3 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select 3", 10, 220)
$idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 120, 250)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
; Set TestSelectForever as the default radio button
GUICtrlSetState($bSelect1, $GUI_CHECKED)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $bSelect1
            MsgBox(0, "", "Select1")

        Case $bSelect2
            MsgBox(0, "", "Select2")

        Case $bSelect3
            MsgBox(0, "", "Select3")

        Case $idClose
            $bSelect1 = GUICtrlRead($bSelect1)
            $bSelect2 = GUICtrlRead($bSelect2)
            $bSelect3 = GUICtrlRead($bSelect3)


            If $bSelect1 = 1 Then
                $Radio1 = String("checked")
            Else
                $Radio1 = String("not checked")
            EndIf

            If $bSelect2 = 1 Then
                $Radio2 = String("checked")
            Else
                $Radio2 = String("not checked")
            EndIf

            If $bSelect3 = 1 Then
                $Radio3 = String("checked")
            Else
                $Radio3 = String("not checked")
            EndIf
            MsgBox(0, "Results", "Select1 is " & $Radio1 & ". Select2 is " & $Radio2 & ". Select3 is " & $Radio3 & ".")
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
WEnd

      MS Splash Screens
      The office 2016/17 office suite has made many people turn heads with its functions and especially their splash screen.
      I now present to you, the MS Style Splash Screen. For Rookies, Novices and anyone who wants a ready made splash screen for your gui application.

      You can now download it and also try it out yourself.
      You have three colors to choose from:
      Blue
      Red
      Green
      All three colours are from the famous programs.
      I also included the KODA form to you can have freedom with this splash screen.
      Note: the KODA form does not have the three colours as well as the correct blue. 

      Have fun and enjoy.
      Note:
      I will update the splash to add the automated 3 dots animation at a later stage.

      A gui splash screen. Themed after the famous MS Office Suite.
      Three colours to choose from, Red, Blue and Green.
      You can change the labels to your own application.

      Also bundled with this is the KODA form. So you can open up and see the basic structure of this splash screen.

      Hello all,
      I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
      ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
      ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
      RunWait('"'&@ProgramFilesDir&'\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --silent-launch',@ScriptDir)  
      But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome? 
      Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
       
      Thank you,

      I have a working program currently driven largely through menu selections. I would like to add a toolbar where most of the tollbar button actions are basically the same as menu items, but quicker to access. I have been wading around in toolbar examples, MSDN pages etc, it's clearly going to be a bit of a slog to get everything right, including tooltips etc. I thought I would start with something simple to prove the principle.
      Using bits from the help file examples I have a small program that successfully displays a toolbar. However, what seemed like the most elegant way to deal with the button commands does not seem to work. My understanding was that a toolbar button fires a WM_COMMAND message, with the command Id set by the second parameter in the call to
      _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton ( $hWnd, $iID, $iImage)
      so I though it would be a good idea to set this Id to the same value as my menu item Id; then it would run the same task which is what I wanted. This did not work. I am using message loop mode and would like to stick with this because some of my scripts run hardware at the same time as the gui; it is easier if I don't have to worry about code being interrupted with the hardware in an unknown state . So I added a handler for WM_COMMAND, with some cribbed display code to try and see why. The toolbar button defintely fired a WM_COMMAND message and the Id looked the same, so no explanation there.
      I guess the issue is with GUIGetMsg() which may be constructed to ignore all but a limited number of control handles, i.e. those made with the GuiCtrlCreate... commands; this is speculation.
      I would dearly love to find a tidy way to get around this. Having some controls handled in the message loop and some in a WM_COMMAND handler, performing the same task, feels ugly. I would be very grateful for further insight from someone experienced with handling a toolbar. Perhaps I should be trying to fire the menu item. I have attached a code snippet to try and illustrate the issue.

      Hello all,
      I've been working on 4 standalone scripts. They each have their own GUI and are now independent .exe's. But instead of having 4 separate icons on my computer, is it possible to put them all together into one .exe?
      What I want is one interface with tabs. Each script's GUI would be on their own respective tab. Is this possible?
      The different scripts don't need to communicate with one another. I just want them all in one .exe.
      I can't find this anywhere... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
