GUICtrlCreateEdit with Arrays in Case Statements

Recommended Posts

I am working on a Video Player Test Script. I am reading a text file into a 3d array to be displayed in a GUI.

Array Content:

[x][0]FileName.mp4

[x][1]UsageCount -> Up to a 4 digit number

[x][2]EnableUsageCount (True/False)

In the GUI the user can check the filename box, edit the number of usages and check EnableUsageCount to turn on the UsageCount control using the UsageCount number for the maximum number of plays.

To make this easier to deal with I have removed the EnableUsageCount section, and am just concentrating on getting a method to put the edited (or unchanged) UsageCount in the array. Currently nothing is read into the array, due to my using the wrong method in the Case statement.

Here are code snippets of what I am trying to do:

; Snippets from script
; I read the text file at the bottom and put the .mp4 filenames in $aManifest[x][0] and UsageCount in $aManifest[x][1]
; Then I create a GUI to display the .mp4 filenames with checkboxes and the UsageCount to the right. UsageCount is editable by the user.
; If the filename is checked, I want to read the filename into $aCheckedVideos[x][0] and the updated UsageCount in $aCheckedVideos[x][1]
; The GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) with Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED works for the checkboxes

; This section puts the filenames in the GUI with a checkbox
For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1
        $sMP4Text = $aManifest[$i][0]
        $iMP4Length = StringLen($sMP4Text)
        $aVideoName[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($sMP4Text,$iLeft, $iTop)
        $iTop += 30
    Next

; This section reads numbers from the Manifest array, and I want to be able to change the number and have them saved.
; So the Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED won't work here, and I can't figure out what I should be doing here.
    For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1
        $sUsageText = $aManifest[$i][1]
        $aUsageCount[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput($sUsageText,$iLeft, $iTop, 50,18, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
        GUICtrlSetPos($aUsageCount[$i],200)
        $iTop += 30
    Next

    While 1
        $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit

            Case $idCloseGUI
                For $i = 0 To $iMMNewCount Step 1
                    Switch GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i])
                        Case $GUI_CHECKED
                            $aCheckedVideos[$i][0] = $aManifest[$i][0]  ; If checked, I put the results into a two D array
                        Case $GUI_UNCHECKED                             ; where Video Name is $aCheckedVideos[x][0]
                    EndSwitch
                    Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i])
                        Case $GUI_CHECKED
                            $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i]   ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1]
                        Case $GUI_UNCHECKED                             ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to
                    EndSwitch                                           ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing.
                Next
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

;The txt file I'm reading has the following:
;~ /** Title #1: Big Buck Bunny 1080p **/
;~ "Name": "Big Buck Bunny",
;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s.mp4",
;~ "UsageCount": 9999,
;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4",
;~ "UsageCount": 45,
;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4",
;~ "UsageCount": 2,
;~ /** Title #2: Tears of Steel 4K **/

;~ "UsageCount": 0,
;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4",
;~ "UsageCount": 5,

I am certain that the section

                    Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i])
                        Case $GUI_CHECKED :lmao:
                            $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i]    ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1]
                        Case $GUI_UNCHECKED                                ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to
                    EndSwitch                                            ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing.


is wrong, and this is what I am looking for help with. Instead of $GUI_CHECKED what should I be looking for?

The worst part of this is I had this working late last night, and then lost my changes and cannot for the life of me remember how I had this working. :(

Help is truly appreciated!

OK I created a new script that can be run so you can see my problem. I need to display the updated number in the final display.

 

;~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
;
;   This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
;       The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
;       Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
;           plumbing.
;
;   The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
;       figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

The text file that is read is here:

* This is a dummy file with Somebody.name and Number
* The only purpose of this file is to read the updated Number.
Name:Taggart
Number:916
Name:Mongo
Number:90
Name:Hedley Lamarr
Number:22
Name:Bart
Number:9999
Name:The Waco Kid
Number:2244

Copy the text above into NameNumber.txt and store the file in your script directory.

Run the script, Check a Checkbox and change that associated number and continue. You will see the original number is displayed, not the one you just modified.

How do I get the updated data from the GUI?

Jibberish,

You are using the wrong element of the $aNumberCount array to get the ControlID of the inputs. Try this:

      I'm trying to pass a nested array to a function, such that the function alters the inner array.
      I was surprised to find that this minimal reproducible example, despite its use of ByRef, seems to pass a copy of the inner array to the function:
      #include <Array.au3> ; a boring old array Local $aInnerArray[5] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ; a one-element array containing a reference to the other array Local $aOuterArray[1] = [$aInnerArray] ; intention: take a nested array and alter its inner array ; reality: the inner array seems to be getting copied Func ChangeIt(ByRef $aOuter) Local $aInner = $aOuter[0] $aInner[2] = 0 EndFunc ; Expected: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ; Actual: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ✔ _ArrayDisplay($aInnerArray, 'Before') ; $aOuterArray passed by-ref, should receive reference to $aInnerArray ; Therefore should change $aInnerArray to [1, 2, 0, 4, 5] ChangeIt($aOuterArray) ; Expected: [1, 2, 0, 4, 5] ; Actual: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ✘ _ArrayDisplay($aInnerArray, 'After') I suspect that either:
      the copy is taking place in the first line of the function (I couldn't find a way to access the inner array without first assigning it to a variable though); or ByRef doesn't propagate into inner levels of the data structure being passed, which seems less likely to me. Could someone please point me in the right direction to get this working as intended?
      Update: the answer
      ; WRONG: ; a one-element array containing a reference to the other array Local $aOuterArray[1] = [$aInnerArray] The assumption I made about this code is wrong—it actually copies $aInnerArray into $aOuterArray, so there are now two unrelated $aInnerArray instances.  It is not possible to store arrays in other arrays by reference.
      If it is necessary to refer to a mutable array in multiple places, consider holding it in a global variable.  Where a collection of mutable arrays needs to be accessed in multiple places (as in my case), consider storing them in a global array and referring to each sub-array by index (also known as the Registry pattern).

      Hi all, I wasnt active in this Forum forum for Years. 😅
      Since I need something with Json in AutoIt i write a little UDF to save a variable to file to read it with another language - and back. After a while until my other script grows i thought - lets integrate all variables wich is possible, because i want have arrays to.
      This is my first public UDF in Autoit - normaly my AutoIt scripts are quick an dirty.... - like the examples for this udf. - someone want to write nice examples?
      I tried to write this UDF properly, cared for processing speed, low mem consumption as possible, a short code, and a high usability without beeing very familiar with arrays.
      What is it for? - convert nearly all types of variables to a json string for saving it in a file or to an ini. Read it back in to a same formated variable and preserv variable types. All array types are supported with nested arrays, the only restriction is ram and array/stringsize - and time if the array is very big. You can use Filters for variable types and some other options.
      If anyone found a bug or any suggestions, please post it.

      Hi
      Trying this from autoit v3.3.14.5 and SCITE 3.19.102.1901.0 :
      help file , page "Language Reference - Variables" , sample autoit script about maps:

      Maps must be declared before use by defining their scope using the 'Global/Local/Static' keywords. Local $mControls[]
      So is my test script : only with this local declation.
      -check syntax is OK
      - running script : 

      test.au3" (13) : ==> Variable subscript badly formatted.: Local $mControls[] Local $mControls[^ ERROR ->14:51:49 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:1
      any clue ?
