Button Variables Creation

Recommended Posts

AppSoftwareVld

Hello,

 

I need this for a project and I don't find a method for the next problem.

I want when I click a button to create a variable ("$variable1") so if I press one more time to create one more ("$variable2") and create more and more how many times you press the button.

 

Do you have an idea ? 

Thank you for your attention !

AppSoftwareVld,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

You could use an array and add an element each time you click the button. But if you could explain why you need to create these variables, we might be able to offer better solutions.

It's a bit difficult what I want to do, when the button click he will create a variable and set the variable some data.

Actually, there is one more problem, probably I will open in another topic.

After that I want to show on a list all variables that have a selected data (example show all variables with 'blue' data) or something like that.

 

Sorry for my bad english, I hope you understood what I want to do.

AppSoftwareVld,

That is simply a repeat of what you want to do - I was asking why you wanted to do it, for example what type of data are you storing with each button press?

If you were to use the array method I suggested then your second problem can be solved by searching through the array for the necessary "key" and then adding those elements to a List control. Again, if you can explain more clearly just what you are trying to do then I can offer more focused help.

I don't speak so good english, but all I want to do is when click the button read an input, create a new variable where that will have the text from the input and when i click on another button show a combo with all  the variables that have the text 'blue'.

 

I don't want to do nothing with them just show them in a combo.

If you don't understand you can enter with team viewer if you have time to help for a moment and show you what I actually want to do, I can't explain so good in english.

AppSoftwareVld,

Does this do what you want?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

; Array to hold input contents
Global $aContents[1] = [0]

; Set required string to match
$sRequired = "blue"

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20)

$cRead = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read", 10, 50, 80, 30)

$cShow = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show", 100, 50, 80, 30)

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 100, 200, 200)
GUICtrlSetState($cCombo, $GUI_HIDE)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cRead
            ; Increase size of array
            $aContents[0] += 1
            ReDim $aContents[$aContents[0] + 1]
            ; Check if there is something to add
            If GUICtrlRead($cInput) <> "" Then
                ; Add input contents to array
                $aContents[$aContents[0]] = GUICtrlRead($cInput)
            EndIf
            ; Clear input
            GUICtrlSetData($cInput, "")
            ; Reset focus to input
            GUICtrlSetState($cInput, $GUI_FOCUS)
        Case $cShow
            ; Create new combo data
            $sComboData = ""
            ;Loop through array
            For $i = 1 To $aContents[0]
                ; Check if required value is present
                If StringInStr($aContents[$i], $sRequired) Then
                    ; And add to combo data
                    $sComboData &= "|" & $aContents[$i]
                EndIf
            Next
            ; Add data to combo
            GUICtrlSetData($cCombo, $sComboData)
            ; Show combo
            GUICtrlSetState($cCombo, $GUI_SHOW)
        Case $cCombo
            GUICtrlSetState($cCombo, $GUI_HIDE)



    EndSwitch

WEnd

      Hi,
      I'm trying to create a shortcut playing with variables but I can't figure out what's wrong
      I got 2 variables joined in one with for instance
      Local $path = FileOpenDialog($message, "C:" & "", "Select your executable (*.exe)", 1 + 4)
      Local $elev = 'c:\windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start "runhigh" /high '
      $target = $elev & $path
      FileCreateShortcut($target, @DesktopCommonDir & "\linked.lnk", StringLeft($target,StringInStr($target,"\",0,-1)) , "" , "" , "c:\i.ico")
      The problem is that a shortcut is created but instead of the target area I got the start in filled with my variable
      My second problem is that when I do a shell execute of the result of $target = $elev & $path, Note that if I do a batch with the variable written manually, it's working.

      Hello Everyone,
      New Guy here. This is a two-part question, hopefully easy enough though. I know it's ugly coding, this is because I have only a couple hours worth of coding experience and could really use some help.
      1) When I single click the button I want one action (like playing a sound clip) and when I double click the button I want a different action (such as opening dialogue box to ask for soundclip directory address). At the bottom of the script I made a comment which one I would like single click versus double click.
      2) I can not get the FileOpenDialogue to save the file address to the config.ini file at the 'One' position on the .ini.
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <Sound.au3> Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $OneID _Main() Func _Main() GUICreate("Form1", 156, 86, 281, 276) $OneID = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button", 15, 17, 122, 37) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($OneID, "OnOne") GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "OnExit") GUISetState() While 1 While 1 Sleep(1000) WEnd WEnd EndFunc ;---------------Functions------------- While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func OnOne() ; ******************Single Click for this action**************** $OneID = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", $OneID) If $OneID = True Then SoundPlay($OneID, @HotKeyPressed) Else ; *******Double Click for this action*****And Help Saving File Address to config.ini 'One'*********** $OneID = FileOpenDialog("Select file", @WorkingDir, "All (*.*)") IniWrite("config.ini", "Config", "One", $OneID) $OneID = InputBox("Enter Information", "Short Name for File?", "") IniWrite("config.ini", "Config", "NameOne", $OneID) EndIf EndFunc Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you need anymore clarity as to what exactly I'm trying to do, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks so much!

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      I'm trying to click a button on a web page. I have added a couple of MsgBox lines to allow me to watch what happens on the page. As you can see the first half of my script enters data into text boxes on the page. I have no problem there. I just cannot click on the region buttons. The "set focus" line causes an outline to appear around the EU button and the "click button" line causes the "Pick a Region" text to disappear. Here is the code I have so far.
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://questchecker.com/") Local $iQuestID = "123456" Local $sCharacterName = "CharacterName" Local $colForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE) $iCount = 0 For $oForm In $colForms $oFormElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm) For $oFormElement In $oFormElements $iCount = $iCount + 1 Local $sTagName = StringLower($oFormElement.tagName) Local $sElementType = $oFormElement.type Local $sElementName = $oFormElement.name Switch $iCount Case 6 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, "MyRealm", 0) ; realm Case 7 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, $sCharacterName, 0) Case 8 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, $iQuestID, 0) EndSwitch Next Next Local $oButtons = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "questForm") For $oButton In $oButtons If _IEFormElementGetValue($oButton) = "US" Then MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to set focus") _IEAction($oButton, "focus") MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to click button") _IEAction($oButton, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to quit") _IEQuit($oIE) Exit

      As they're opinion-based to some degree; how are AutoIt's best practices decided and do suggestions get considered?
      Some suggestions :
      For...To...Step...Next -loop variable-naming like $iN ($i1, $i2, etc.) : conforms to recommended naming convention, identifies level (albeit inverted to ExitLoop and ContinueLoop's convention) and enables SciTE selection-highlighting (requires minimum of 3 characters). Minimize logic in global scope, separate data & settings from logic, use of vertical space, project organization (folder structure, resource- and include file management). Example (loop variable-naming, minimizing logic in global scope and separation of settings from logic) :
      #include <Array.au3> Global Enum $RANDOM_RETURNFLOAT, _ $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER Global Enum $EXITCODE_NONE Global Const $g_sChar0 = '-' Global Const $g_sChar1 = '+' Global Const $g_iAmountX = 10 Global Const $g_iAmountY = $g_iAmountX Main() Func Main() Local $aArray[$g_iAmountY][$g_iAmountX] For $i1 = 0 To $g_iAmountY - 1 For $i2 = 0 To $g_iAmountX - 1 $aArray[$i1][$i2] = Random(0, 1, $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER) ? $g_sChar1 : $g_sChar0 Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray) Exit $EXITCODE_NONE EndFunc Example (project organization) :
      + project_folder + bak [backup files] + bin [distributed binaries and dependencies] + inc [non-standard include files] + res [resource files (icons, file+install files, etc.)] + usr [configuration files, databases, etc.] - script.au3 - script.exe Example (use of vertical space) :
      Func _DigitalRoot($iNum) Local $sNum = '' Local $aNum While $iNum > 9 $sNum = String($iNum) $aNum = StringSplit($sNum, '') $iNum = 0 For $i1 = 1 To $aNum[0] $iNum += Int($aNum[$i1]) Next WEnd Return $iNum EndFunc
