My first GUICtrlCreateTab

Recommended Posts

Hey guys:

 

I'm a newbie looking for a solution for my problem. Thank you in advance.

I wrote a GUI app (See below) and in the "Input" tab I have a button to select a file. Once that file is selected, I want to display the path on the "Input" tab only. I used GUICtrlCreateLabel() and that path is repeated on all the tabs.  What am I doing wrong?

XanzyX,

I suggest reading the Tabs tutorial in the Wiki - if you still have questions then post again.

Really? What about this section:

Adding Controls To Tabs After Creation

If you need to add built-in controls to a tab after the tabs have already been created, then you must use GUISwitch with the tabitemID parameter to select the correct tab before you create the control or you will find that it is visible on all tabs.

And if you adapt the example code to your script you get something like this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$Form1_1 = GUICreate("My Test GUI", 623, 449, -1, -1)

$Tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(16, 16, 585, 417)

;~ Main Tab =====================================
$MainTabSheet = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Main")
$ExitButtonM = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 504, 392, 81, 28)

;~ Input Tab =====================================
$InputTabSheet = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Input")
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_SHOW)
$SingleFileRadio = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select Single File", 24, 56, 180, 20)
$SingleFileLocText = GUICtrlCreateLabel(IniRead("MyGUI.ini", "Main", "InputFileName", " "), 24, 80, 400, 84)
$SingleFileSelectButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select", 430, 80, 73, 28)
$SingleFileEditButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Edit", 518, 80, 73, 28)
$ExitButtonI = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 504, 392, 81, 28)
$RunButtonI = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run", 24, 392, 81, 28)

$MultipleFileRadio = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select Multiple Files", 24, 176, 180, 20)

$FolderRadio = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Select Folder", 24, 296, 180, 20)

GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

;~ Filter Tab =====================================
$FiltersTabSheet = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Filters")
$RunButtonF = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run", 24, 392, 81, 28)
$ExitButtonF = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 504, 392, 81, 28)

;~ Output Tab =====================================
$OutputTabSheet = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Output")
$RunButtonO = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run", 24, 392, 81, 28)
$ExitButtonO = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 504, 392, 81, 28)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        ; You can have multiple cases with a common action
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $ExitButtonM, $ExitButtonI, $ExitButtonF, $ExitButtonO
            Exit
        Case $SingleFileRadio
            ;IniWrite("MyGUI.ini", "Main", "InputRadio", 1)
        Case $MultipleFileRadio
            ;IniWrite("MyGUI.ini", "Main", "InputRadio", 2)
        Case $FolderRadio
            ;IniWrite("MyGUI.ini", "Main", "InputRadio", 3)
        Case $SingleFileSelectButton
            ; Select the tab on which to create the control
            GUISwitch($Form1_1, $InputTabSheet)
            ; Create the control
            $SingleFileLocText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Now I appear on only the input tab", 24, 80, 400, 84)
            GUICtrlSetBkColor($SingleFileLocText, 0xFFCCCC)
            ; Close the tab creation mode and reset the current GUI
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
            GUISwitch($Form1_1)

    EndSwitch
WEnd

All clear now?

      Hello!

      Is it possible to make the background of a tab transparent to f.ex show the backgroundimage of a underlying GUI?
      According to the help-file the GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,$GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT) don't work w/ GUICtrlCreateTab
      It won't do to just set the image to show inside of the tabs instead of this.

      Any suggestions or solution if this is possible?
      I saw that this had been asked on the forums a few years back, but that problem didn't get solved.

      Best regards,
      zvvyt
