What am I missing?

4 posts in this topic

I started playing with Koda today trying to get the hang of GUIs. The below code is generated from Koda but as soon as I put in a second case the GUI only stays open for a second then closes. Having a bad day. I am sure it is something very simple I just can't figure out what. Pulling my hair out.....

 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Local $ButtonSet, $ButtonQuit,$Form, $Label, $Input, $nMsg

;--=== main line ===--;


Set_Gui()
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $ButtonQuit
            Beep()
        Case $ButtonSet
            Beep()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Exit

;--=== main GUI window ===--;

Func Set_GUI()
$Form = GUICreate("Set OBD Signatures", 615, 437, -870, 249)
$ButtonSet = GUICtrlCreateButton("Set", 136, 256, 75, 25)
$ButtonExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 440, 264, 75, 25)
$Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Serial Number: ", 120, 128, 76, 17)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input", 240, 128, 121, 21)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
EndFunc

Trax,

You have declared $ButtonQuit but use $ButtonExit to store the button ControlID. As a result $ButtonQuit has no declared value and AutoIt treats it as 0, which is the default return from GUIGetMsg and so fires that case on the first pass.

There's several things wrong

Your Button's names don't match.

$ButtonExit vs $ButtonQuit  

Don't call it $ButtonExit.

 

Also, remove the () from 

Switch $nMsg()

This is why it keeps closing.

Hope that helps.
