How to create a retractable bar using autoit

Recommended Posts

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

@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.
 my Greetings to 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.

I think it's just like this @JLogan3o13:)

Just the last week was asked something like this...

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>

; Needs nircmd.exe from:
; http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $iSliderValueOld, $iSliderValue, $Show = 0
    $hWin = GUICreate("slider", 320, 70, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP)

    Local $idSlider1 = GUICtrlCreateSlider(10, 10, 300, 50, -1, $TBS_TOOLTIPS)
    GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 100, 0) ; change min/max value
    ;GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hWin)
    GUICtrlSetData($idSlider1, 50)
    GUICtrlSetTip(-1, GUICtrlRead($idSlider1))
    $iSliderValueOld = GUICtrlRead($idSlider1)
    Local $idMsg
    ; Loop until the user exits.
    Do
        $aMousePos = MouseGetPos()
        If ($aMousePos[0] > (@DesktopWidth - 100)) And ($aMousePos[1] < 5) Then
            If $Show Then

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

      Good morning, I am trying to figure out if it is possible to check if these invoice lines exist or not. 
      Here are the table and column name: INVOICELINE.INVOICELINENUM (a required field if created)
      Here is a picture of what I am talking about. (Do not worry about security. the picture is from a demo test site so all information is fake)
       
      is there any way to check if these fields exist or not? (they do not exist unless the user clicks on "New Row")
      Example: line 11 does not exist right now. How would I go about to see if it did or not? 
      This is what I have so far:
      SELECT DISTINCT iv.invoicenum, iv.description FROM invoice AS iv JOIN invoiceline AS ivl ON iv.invoicenum = ivl.invoicenum AND iv.siteid = ivl.siteid /* = 'nothing' and yet somehow not null? */ WHERE iv.invoicenum NOT IN (SELECT invoicelinenum FROM invoiceline WHERE invoicelinenum IS NOT NULL) I get 0 results where I should get more than 0.

      Hello Everyone,
      I am very green when it comes to AutoIT, I have recently started using it to automate a job that i perform using MS Excel and that is working great. Recently I have been faced with a challenge I which i need to copy a specific set of lines from one .txt file and past them, overwriting a specific set of lines in a different .txt file. I honestly have no clue how I can copy the specified lines and transfer them. What functions / commands could I use and how could I lay them out I AutoIT? Any and all help will be appreciated. 
      Thanks!

      Hello I want to conect to a Network with DriveMapAdd.
      This worked just fine but when you restart the Computer the Mapped drive is gone.
      So i used the persistent mapping flag and that seemed to work, too.
      However when the Computer is restarted I cant connect to the Network because it doesnt remember the Username and password I ave it the first time.
      How do I fix this?
      My Code:Func
      setdrivem()
          DriveMapAdd("M:", GUICtrlRead($driveM),1, GUICtrlRead($netzuser),GUICtrlRead($netzpassword) )
      EndFunc
      $netzuser and $netzpassword are set earlier in the gui and it works right after executing the script but i want it to stay connected
