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

Something like GUICtrlCreateSlider in the help file?

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.

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>

; 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)
    GUISetBkColor(0xFF00FF) ; will change background color

    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
                GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hWin)
                $Show = 0
            Else
                GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hWin)
                $Show = 1
            EndIf
            While (($aMousePos[0] > (@DesktopWidth - 100)) And ($aMousePos[1] < 5))
                $aMousePos = MouseGetPos()
                Sleep(10)
            WEnd
        EndIf
        $idMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $idMsg = $idSlider1 Then
            $iSliderValue = GUICtrlRead($idSlider1)
            SoundSetWaveVolume(GUICtrlRead($idSlider1))
            ; "nircmd.exe" from  http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html
            Run("nircmd.exe changesysvolume " & ($iSliderValue - $iSliderValueOld) * 655.35)
            $iSliderValueOld = GUICtrlRead($idSlider1)
            GUICtrlSetTip($idSlider1, GUICtrlRead($idSlider1))
        EndIf

    Until $idMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
EndFunc   ;==>Example

 

"SndVol.exe" method:

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

; Ref: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/119699-program-specific-volume-control-udf/
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 4=advanced, -1 to -4=Nocase

Run(@SystemDir & "\SndVol.exe")

$hWin = WinWaitActive("Volume Mixer")
$aWinPos = WinGetPos($hWin)
WinMove($hWin, "", 10 - $aWinPos[2], $aWinPos[1])

While 1
    If WinExists($hWin) = 0 Then Exit
    $tPoint = _WinAPI_GetMousePos()
    $hWnd = _WinAPI_WindowFromPoint($tPoint)
    ;ConsoleWrite($hWnd & @CRLF)
    $aWinPos = WinGetPos($hWin)
    If $hWin = $hWnd Then
        WinMove($hWin, "", 0, $aWinPos[1], $aWinPos[2], $aWinPos[3], 2)
        While $hWin = _WinAPI_GetAncestor($hWnd, $GA_ROOT) ; or $hWin = $hWnd
            Sleep(100)
            $tPoint = _WinAPI_GetMousePos()
            $hWnd = _WinAPI_WindowFromPoint($tPoint)
        WEnd
        $aWinPos = WinGetPos($hWin)
        WinMove($hWin, "", 10 - $aWinPos[2], $aWinPos[1])
    EndIf
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

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

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.23 contains 203 functions divided into these topics:
      window, desktop and monitor mouse and GUI GUI controls including graphical buttons (jpg, png) logics and mathematics include constants string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info Change log and files section  on the PAL website (SourceForge).
      A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.

      Hello,

      I am new to AutoIt so please bare with me. I am trying to write a script that installs a certain program on Win 10 and then based on a successful install create a file in a specific directory. Below is my install script which works, just not quite sure how to get it to write the file when its done. My thought is to add a "If FileExists" command at the end to make sure that the files are in the install folder and based on that write the file just not sure how to accomplish it. I hope that makes sense and thank you in advance for any help. 
       
      Local $Title="MobilePass Install"
      Local $FilePATH="\\XXXXXXX\XXXXXX"
      Local $UserName "*****8"
      Local $Password = "*******8"   ;Check if Application location already exists
      If FileExists ("C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\05EB1CFA.SafeNetMobilePASS_1.8.3.0_x64__bnm8hg3x9na9j") Then
      Exit
      Else
      Local $pid = RunAsWait ($UserName, $ComputerDomainName, $Password, 1, "MobilePASS+Setup_1.8.3.0_signed.exe", "", @SW_HIDE )
      Endif

      Hi all,
      I'm developing a tool for exploratively testing another software. For that I wanna cover all the GUI functionality from that software and verify everything works as intended. But now I've a problem which I couldnt solve so far.
      One thing that software I'm testing does, is to load up either a single picture or a series of pictures. Depending on how much pictures got loaded, further actions will be proceeded...
      This loaded pictures are schon within a ToolbarWindow and they're clickable. What I need to know is, how much pictures are in this ToolbarWindow...
      Can anybody provide me a tip on how to achive this?
      Would be amazing!!
      BR,
      Mic
