Need help with my application!

6 posts in this topic

I've used AutoIt for a long time and now need some help. English isn't my native language and it's difficult to express my idea. Sorry about that. :P

I'm currently writing a script that involve making GUI. The GUI only contains an Input box, which allows me to type a command in, and press Enter to process. It's actually a Tool window. I created it by using this code:

$gui = GuiCreate($title, $width, $height, $left, $top, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS + $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES + $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW + $WS_EX_TOPMOST)

All the needed variables are declared before that.

The "Console", or actually the input box is created with this:

$console = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, $console_width, $console_height, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL + $GUI_FOCUS + $GUI_ACCEPTFILES)

Everytime the user drag-and-drop a file or folder into this console, my GUI will trigger the hotkey:

- If he press "Enter", my app will open the file / folder for him.

- If he press "Ctrl + Enter", the app will "scroll down" to display some extra options, like create a shortcut for the file / folder. I "scroll down" the app by using the following code:

Func WinScroll($right, $down)
    $inc = 0
    While $inc < $right
        $inc = $inc + 1
        WinMove($title, "", $left, $top, $width + $inc, $height)
    WEnd
    $newwidth = $width + $right
    $inc = 0
    While $inc < $down
        $inc = $inc + 1
        WinMove($title, "", $left, $top, $newwidth, $height + $inc)
    WEnd
    $newheight = $height + $down
EndFunc

After that, the app will create some more controls on the GUI:

GuiCtrlSetState($console, $GUI_DISABLE)
    WinScroll(140, 35)
    $add_label = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Shortcut name: ", 5, $console_height + 10)
    $add_name = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 80, $console_height + 5, 140, $console_height, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL)
    GuiCtrlSetState($add_name, $GUI_FOCUS)
    $add_ok = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Add", 225, $console_height + 3, 50)
    $add_cancel = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 280, $console_height + 3, 50)

To add a shortcut after clicking Add button, I add these lines to the loop:

Select
    Case $msg = $add_ok
        AddShortcut(); my function
;;; other cases
    EndSelect

When the shortcut is added, or the user press Cancel, the app will scroll back and delete all controls:

WinScrollBack(); my function
    GuiCtrlDelete($add_name)
    GuiCtrlDelete($add_label)
    GuiCtrlDelete($add_ok)
    GuiCtrlDelete($add_cancel)

It works perfectly until I want to add some more features to my app. Like triggering Alt + Enter, then scroll back and display an extra menu, allow users to add a group of files/folders.

I use the same scenario as the add shortcut funcition above. However, the above function go away as soon as my new function works. I mean, the add function no longer work. When I press Ctrl + Enter, the app scroll down and immediatelly scroll back, althought I don't click Cancel or adding shortcut.

Why does it happen? I haven't found out the reason and now needing help. Urgent! I want to finish this app and send it as a gift to my best friend before Xmas. Please help me.

Any ideas/suggestions are welcomed. Thanks million times!

Sorry to post twice in a row. Just to describe the problem more precisely.

If you drag a file into the console, then press Ctrl+Enter, the app will scroll down and then scroll back at once. It should stay there until I click Cancel or finish adding shortcut. Or, at least, it was what I tried to do.

Thing goes fine in the version I attach here

nice work... very good

1

i cannot run the script as i do not have the ini files and the script crashes

2

maybe try to create the"added" controls in the beginning... then immediately hide them ... then when the system scrolls down "show" the controls... and instead of deleting them.. hide them again

example

#Include <GUIConstants.au3>

; Default values for main gui
$title = "Dorevo"
$width = 500
$height = 400
$left = 300;@DesktopWidth - $width / 2
$top = 300;@DesktopHeight - $height / 2

; Default values for console
$console_height = 20
$console_width  = $width
$newwidth = $width
$newheight  = $height


; Create gui & console
$gui = GuiCreate($title, $width, $height, $left, $top, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS + $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES + $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW + $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
$console = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, $console_width, $console_height, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL + $GUI_FOCUS)
GUICtrlSetState ($console, $GUI_ACCEPTFILES)

; create the buttons then hide or expand the window ( your choice )

$xpand = GUICtrlCreateButton( "Xpand the window", 200, 110, 100, 20)
$hide = GUICtrlCreateButton( "Hide controls", 100, 310, 100, 20)
$dummy = GUICtrlCreateButton( "Dummy control", 200, 310, 100, 20)
$show = GUICtrlCreateButton( "Show controls", 300, 310, 100, 20)

; set and hide gui
GuiSetState(@SW_HIDE)

; hide controls
GUICtrlSetState($hide, $GUI_HIDE )
GUICtrlSetState($dummy, $GUI_HIDE )
GUICtrlSetState($show, $GUI_HIDE )
WinMove($title, "",  $left, $top, $width, 100)
GuiSetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $msg = $xpand
            Set_xpand()
        Case $msg = $hide
            Set_hide()
        Case $msg = $show
            Set_show()  
    EndSelect
WEnd


; ---------- Functions -----------

func Set_xpand()
    If GUICtrlRead($xpand) = "Xpand the window" Then
        $inc = 100
        While $inc < 400
            $inc = $inc + 1
            WinMove($title, "",  $left, $top, $width, $inc)
        WEnd
        Set_show()  
        GUICtrlSetData($xpand, "Shrink the window")
    Else
        Set_hide()
        GUICtrlSetState($show, $GUI_HIDE )
        $inc = 400
        While $inc > 100
            $inc = $inc - 1
            WinMove($title, "",  $left, $top, $width, $inc)
        WEnd
        GUICtrlSetState($xpand, $GUI_SHOW )
        GUICtrlSetData($xpand, "Xpand the window")
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func Set_hide()
    GUICtrlSetState($xpand, $GUI_HIDE )
    GUICtrlSetState($dummy, $GUI_HIDE )
    GUICtrlSetState($hide, $GUI_HIDE )
EndFunc

Func Set_show()
    GUICtrlSetState($xpand, $GUI_SHOW )
    GUICtrlSetState($dummy, $GUI_SHOW )
    GUICtrlSetState($hide, $GUI_SHOW )
    GUICtrlSetState($show, $GUI_SHOW )
EndFunc

hope that helps
