How can I disable ALL Button TabStops in a GUI ?

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum,

As said in the title, I'm searching a way to disable all tabstops in a GUI. My GUI includes 15 buttons and 3 edit controls.

My questions:

- is there a way to disable all tabstops at a time

- is there a way to list all controls of a GUI and then disable tabstops one by one

- or should I use the following line after each button creation:

_WinAPI_SetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE, BitAND(_WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE), BitNOT($WS_TABSTOP)))

Thanks in advance for your valuable help!

Thoms

Edit: or maybe disable TAB key? I don't remember how to do!

Hello jguinch,

Works fine and easier than WinAPI... I don't understand why it works that way, but not when creating the control and setting its style to 0. Ie. "GUICtrlCreateButton("One", 10, 10, 80, 30, 0)" doesn't disable tabstop.

But I'm still looking for a way to list controls, only for my curiosity.

Thanks,

Thoms

"GUICtrlCreateButton("One", 10, 10, 80, 30, 0)" doesn't disable tabstop

That is because, as is explained in the Help file for GUICtrlCreateButton, $WS_TABSTOP is a forced style for buttons created with that command - hence you can only remove the style once the button has been created.

      Often I need to create a panel to monitor a lot of things (users, files, items etc) so I use this piece of code to create a dynamic grid of buttons.
      The number of buttons is variable, and it's related to the size of the gui, the size of the buttons and the distance between buttons.
      Every "button" is a set of three with a real button stacked on the top of two labels, imagine reading a .CSV file or an array or a database and displaying all the things using the labels (Text and COLOR too) and clickin' on the relative button you can call further info on the item or call a particular function.
      So you can decide the number of the buttons, the width of the buttons, and also the distance  between buttons.
      It's quick and dirty, simple  and very improvable (I know..) so fell free to play with the code.

      Hi,
      I have an issue with a script being used for a Toddler group register. 
      I list the kids, with their carer and additional carer in ComboLists so a number of carers can be registered per kid. 
      When page down to a second page of kids, the carers are correctly displayed but when I roll the mouse over the combo boxes it reverts to those on the first page.
      I am using the following style codes with the combo boxes - BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_SIMPLE) and they are only holding 2 or 3 entries.
      Here is the code for the pagedisplay function which is called for each line of the registration page (10 lines, currently 55 kid records)) 
      Func PageDisp($L)
      ;Clears display once all records displayed
          If $L > $KidsFound Then
              $Label2[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" ", 75, $v, 280, 29)

              $Label252[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",  650, $v, 220, 29);
              Return
          Endif
          $Kid2d = $Kid1d[$L] ; sets value to find additional carers
      If $Kid1a[$L] <> "" then
          $Label2[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("(" & $L & ")" & $Kid1a[$L] & " " & $Kid1b[$L] , 75, $v, 280, 29)

      Hello,
      i searched the forum for something near, but with no success...
      I have Combobox control with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style with some items (for example (one, two, nine).
      When i want to select the item, using keyboard, the items are selected only on First letter base (for example when i type "on", Nine is selected).
      Is there some trick to force the combobox with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style to accept more than the First letter during selecting the items from the list?
      Mi wanted result is the same as for example - when you type "fir" on the desktop, Firefox is automatically selected.
      Thank you so much.

      I'm trying to implement a scrolling list of controls. I have it sort of working using the GUIScrollBars_Ex UDF by @Melba23 found here. I also want to be able to tab through the controls, which I have accomplished by adding $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT to the child GUI. The problem is that with that style applied, the scrollbar doesn't act like a scrollbar, instead it acts as a title bar to the child GUI letting you drag the it around (and you can even "maximize" it by double clicking).
      Any ideas?
      #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include "GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3" $iButtonCount = 30 $hParent = GUICreate('Example', 300, 230) $hChild = GUICreate('', 300, 200, 0, 0, BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_TABSTOP), $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT, $hParent) For $i = 0 To $iButtonCount GUICtrlCreateButton('Button in list', 0, $i*30, 300, 30) Next GUISwitch($hParent) GUICtrlCreateButton('More Buttons', 0, 200, 150, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('More Buttons', 150, 200, 150, 30) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hParent) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild) _GUIScrollbars_Generate($hChild, 100, $iButtonCount * 30+20) While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd
