Hi, I am stuck on a GUI problem and would like your help to solve it.
I am trying to automate the SoundWire Server app to match my current system volume level while it is minimized to the notification area (so no clicking or stealing focus),
I can already get the handle and alter the tracker position by sending a WM_SETPOS message, but somehow the actual volume is not changed: I think I need to do something else to trigger the event handler for the value change and propagate it correctly.
This is the control summary from Au3 info:
>>>> Window <<<< Title: SoundWire Server Class: #32770 Position: 441, 218 Size: 566, 429 Style: 0x94CA00C4 ExStyle: 0x00050101 Handle: 0x0000000000510E12 >>>> Control <<<< Class: msctls_trackbar32 Instance: 4 ClassnameNN: msctls_trackbar324 Name: Advanced (Class): [CLASS:msctls_trackbar32; INSTANCE:4] ID: 6002 Text: Position: 51, 222 Size: 47, 126 ControlClick Coords: 1, 101 Style: 0x5001000A ExStyle: 0x00000000 Handle: 0x00000000001234C8 >>>> Mouse <<<< Position: 496, 567 Cursor ID: 2 Color: 0xF0F0F0 >>>> StatusBar <<<< >>>> ToolsBar <<<< >>>> Visible Text <<<< Default multimedia device Tray on Start Static Server Address: 192.168.1.8 Status: Connected to B9K~OP3 Audio Output Audio Input Level Record to File Input Select: 44.1 kHz Minimize to Master Volume Mute >>>> Hidden Text <<<< Slider2 Mute OK Cancel Label Balance Slider1 Volume Front L/R Fr C/LFE Side L/R Back L/R
I am attaching the program in question so you don't have to install it (i don't know if it is portable enough, tough):
Thanks in advance and I hope I didn't post in the wrong section
I wrote a benchmark script to measure variable declarations
to find out whether you should focus more on static or global variables

67% declaration of local variable with global variable value set
66% only global variable use with one static variable beside
20% only global variable use with ten static variables beside
My thesis of the result:
Be careful with declarations, whether local, global or static Note: in my test the global variable performance was better than the local one, but in practice the global one would lose performance due to multiple operations
What is your best practice sharing data between multiple functions?
I see $hWnd used as a local variable in a lot of script examples. I know the 'h' is used for handles, but what is the 'Wnd' short for?
i have seen many pointing out issues related to this, i tried reading through them - still unable to solve mine.. i have a script which reads certain lines based on a search item, this is an iterative process - the ldflst_file gets updated for each iteration and the script finds the line number which has the search item. this works perfectly for few iterations, but stops in some cases abruptly with the error =
Subscript used on non-accessible variable $aRead^ ERROR I have verified that the search item is present in the file. what could be the reason for this code to stop in certain cases. thanks for help
my code below (partial).. full code is in attachment
global $ldflst_var1=" JOINT LOAD FORCE(X) FORCE(Y) FORCE(Z) MOMENT(X) MOMENT(Y) MOMENT(Z)"
for $i= 0 to $ldflst_totlines ; ldflst_totlines is total number of lines in the file 'ldflst_file'
if $aRead[$i]=$ldflst_var1 Then
Hello, i'm trying to rename a variable to another variable name (not the value attached to the variable). This would save me TONS of coding.
Here is an example:
Local $clear1="$SATJ" ;sets the $clear1 variable to become $SATJ
GUICtrlSetState($clear1 & "3", $GUI_UNCHECKED) ;i want this to come out to be $SATJ3, it should look something like - GUICtrlSetState($SATJ3, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
I've already tried
any help is greatly appreciated!!!
