How to create a retractable bar using autoit

Recommended Posts

nacerbaaziz

Hi dear
I want create retractable bar using autoit
I tried creating slider, but there's a problem with screen reader for the blind, so is there another retractable tape?
It is advisable to not accept dragging with the keybord only with  mouse
note:
This bar is needed in the process of raising and lowering the volume
I hope that there is a solution to do that
i waiting your responses.
Thanks in advance to all members and administrators

Something like GUICtrlCreateSlider in the help file?

@JLogan3o13 is right :) Did you try GUICtrlCreateSlider? :)

I want it accepts drag using the mouse only and never affects the keyboard because it conflicts with the screen readers for blind shortcuts
I hope this is clear for you.

So, are you trying to let users use mouse only, because of blind users? Am I missing something? :)

EDIT: confused mouse with keyboard, sorry!

Sounds like the other way around, something that can be dragged by the mouse but not by keyboard. Screen readers for the blind are very touchy, and will cause issues if you're holding down keys. Unless I am mistaken on what the OP is asking.

In fact, I researched a lot and unfortunately I didn't find any solution
the last week I posed the shapes, but not in an independent participation, was Among my responses on another topic
And I was afraid that not paying attention to you
for that I decided to ask about this in a separate post
Hoping to find the result
I'm in urgent need.
please help me if you can.
I apologize to all of you if i has violated the forum rules

I think you did not violate any rules of the forum ( @JLogan3o13 can confirm ).

I was looking on here, but I've never jumped into AutoHotKey so deep.

Maybe some veterans could help you :)

EDIT: this one could help you. The language is AutoHotKey, and it's already compiled. Just use it :)

If it is volume control you want, here are two methods.
1. The first requires you to download a free utility called "nircmd.exe" from  http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html.   I put the downloaded file, "nircmd.exe" in the same directory as the script.
When this example is running, move the cursor to the top edge of the desktop and to the far right hand corner.  This cursor position toggles the appearance and disappearance of the slider-bar window.  To exit press escape key when slider-bar window is visible and active.

2. The second method is running "SndVol.exe" which should already be in your Windows directory.  When this example is running, move the cursor to around the middle of the left hand edge of the desktop.  
While the cursor is over the pop-out window, the window will remain.  Click the close button on title bar of  the pop-out "Volume Mixer" window to exit script.

Hopefully one or both these methods won't interfere with the "screen readers for blind shortcuts".

"nircmd.exe" method:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <GuiSlider.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Added tooltip to slider in "nircmd.exe" method. And added a speed to WinMove().

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.
