Mid Function Popup

Recommended Posts

help_me_please

Hello forum world,

I am having an issue with a popup window displaying after selecting something using the ControlCommand( ) function.

I am able to select the desired item from the dropdown list using the control command function but a popup window opens immediately after, not allowing the control command function to finish.

Such as:

ConsoleWrite("Before ControlCommand" & @CRLF)

ControlCommand($Win_Name, "", $ID, "SelectString", $DropItemName)

ConsoleWrite("After ControlCommand" & @CRLF)

 

^^^^

So in the console I can get the "Before...", then the ControlCommand executes the selection of the dropdown menu.  Popup window opens

But since there is a popup, I can not get the "After..." statement to write to the console. 

This is where I am stuck, as I can not execute another command to close the popup window.

 

Send help, oh gracious autoit forum. :)

Write a script to wait for and close the popup, and end. (separate script)

Run the script just before your ControlCommand.

@JohnOne How would I run that script and the controlcommand at the same time?

The other script would go something like this?

Popup_Check( )

While 1

IF WinState($PopupWinName) <> 0 Then

WinExit($PopWinName)

Endif

WEnd

 

ControlCommand( Select from drop down)

Separate popup.au3

ShellExecute("popup.au3")

@JohnOne I tried the suggestion and it does appear to be working.

Startup_Popup_Window_Killer.au3

;Popup Window Closing Function
Local $timer_start = TimerInit()
Local $timer_delta = TimerDiff($timer_start)

While $timer_delta < 3000

   ;Close popup window if it exists
   If WinGetState($PopupWinName) <> 0 Then
      WinClose($PopupWinName)
   EndIf

   $timer_delta = TimerDiff($timer_start)
   ConsoleWrite(round($timer_delta/1000,4) & @CRLF)
WEnd

 

Script to Run both:

ShellExecute("Startup_Popup_Window_Killer.au3")

ControlCommand( )

 

Please advise.

Does it actually work to close the window when run outside of your script?

@JohnOne It does.

      I'm trying to implement a Ctl-F popup box that looks something like the one that Notepad uses, but I'm not havine much luck.  I intend to get it working, then beef up the popup's contents to add several checkboxes, buttons and radio boxes.
      What my example code does is to use InputBox(), but that's not what I want.
      Here is my test code:
      #include <Array.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6 Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) OnAutoItExitRegister("ExitStageLeft") Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) Global $hGUI _Main() Func _Main() $hGUI = GUICreate("Test ^F", 300, 200) setupSpecialKeysHandlers() GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Event_GUIClose") GUISetState() While (1) Sleep(157) WEnd EndFunc ;==>_Main Func handle_CTRL_F_key() Local $str $str = InputBox("Search", "Enter the string to search for:") ConsoleWrite("+++: $str ==>" & $str & "<==" & @CRLF) EndFunc ;==>handle_CTRL_F_key Func ExitStageLeft() Exit (99) EndFunc ;==>ExitStageLeft Func Event_GUIClose() Exit (1) EndFunc ;==>Event_GUIClose Func setupSpecialKeysHandlers() Local $ar, $parts, $key, $handler, $id Local $aAccelKeys[1][2] ; Create a table of Special keys and their handlers $ar = StringSplit("", "") _ArrayAdd($ar, "^f - handle_CTRL_F_key ") ReDim $aAccelKeys[UBound($ar) - 1][2] ; Now, create $aAccelKeys array with the table data. ; For each entry, create a Dummy GUI and associate its ; ID with the special key. For $ndx = 1 To UBound($ar) - 1 $parts = StringSplit($ar[$ndx], "-", 2) $key = StringStripWS($parts[0], 8) $handler = StringStripWS($parts[1], 8) $id = GUICtrlCreateDummy() $aAccelKeys[$ndx - 1][0] = $key $aAccelKeys[$ndx - 1][1] = $id GUICtrlSetOnEvent($id, $handler) Next GUISetAccelerators($aAccelKeys) ; Setup the Special keys hooks EndFunc ;==>setupSpecialKeysHandlers

      Greetings fellows,
       
      I have an issue that is bothering me for quite some time now (Since Autoit3 V3.3.8.0 and still not solved in 3.3.14.0) and i have not found any clue how to solve this particular problem regarding the control of popup-menus for specific controls. I have been searching using many keywords in the hope to find a similar posted issue either on the internet or here on this forum but did not yet stumbled upon it so i have no other option than to post the question (Sorry if there would exist an earlier topic).
      Below is an example that demonstrates the issue very clearly if you follow the steps to reproduce:
      #include <GuiMenu.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <ListViewConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $TestWindow1 = GUICreate("TestWindow1", 353, 277, 100, 80) $ListView1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 8, 8, 338, 262) $ListView1_0 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("TestItem1", $ListView1) $ListView1_1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("TestItem2", $ListView1) $ListView1_2 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("TestItem3", $ListView1) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) $TestWindow2 = GUICreate("TestWindow2", 353, 277, 100 + 400, 80) $ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 8, 8, 338, 262) $ListView2_0 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("TestItem1", $ListView2) $ListView2_1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("TestItem2", $ListView2) $ListView2_2 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("TestItem3", $ListView2) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "WM_NOTIFY") Local $MenuContext, $MenuContext2 Local $ahLVMenu[3] Local $ahLVMenu2[3] For $i = 0 To 2 $ahLVMenu[$i] = GUICtrlCreateDummy() $ahLVMenu2[$i] = GUICtrlCreateDummy() Next While 1 Local $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1) Switch $nMsg[0] Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE If $nMsg[1] == $TestWindow2 Then GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $nMsg[1]) Else Exit EndIf Case $ahLVMenu[0] ConsoleWrite("Dialog 1, Item 1" & @CRLF) Case $ahLVMenu[1] ConsoleWrite("Dialog 1, Item 2" & @CRLF) Case $ahLVMenu[2] ConsoleWrite("Dialog 1, Item 3" & @CRLF) Case $ahLVMenu2[0] ConsoleWrite("Dialog 2, Item 1" & @CRLF) Case $ahLVMenu2[1] ConsoleWrite("Dialog 2, Item 2" & @CRLF) Case $ahLVMenu2[2] ConsoleWrite("Dialog 2, Item 3" & @CRLF) EndSwitch WEnd Func WM_NOTIFY($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam) #forceref $hWnd, $Msg, $wParam Local $hWndFrom, $iIDFrom, $event, $tNMHDR, $hWndListView, $hWndListView2, $tInfo $hWndListView = $ListView1 $hWndListView2 = $ListView2 Local $tMsgFilter, $hMenu If Not IsHWnd($ListView1) Then $hWndListView = GUICtrlGetHandle($ListView1) If Not IsHWnd($ListView2) Then $hWndListView2 = GUICtrlGetHandle($ListView2) $tNMHDR = DllStructCreate($tagNMHDR, $lParam) $hWndFrom = HWnd(DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "hWndFrom")) $iIDFrom = DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "IDFrom") $event = DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "Code") Switch $hWndFrom Case $hWndListView2 Switch $event Case $NM_RCLICK ; Sent by a list-view control when the user clicks an item with the right mouse button _LV_PopUpMenu2() ; Show popup context menu in Pharmacist article list EndSwitch Case $hWndListView Switch $event Case $NM_RCLICK ; Sent by a list-view control when the user clicks an item with the right mouse button _LV_PopUpMenu() ; Show popup context menu in Pharmacist article list EndSwitch EndSwitch $hWndFrom = 0 $iIDFrom = 0 $tNMHDR = 0 $hWndListView = 0 $hWndListView2 = 0 $tInfo = 0 $tMsgFilter = 0 $hMenu = 0 Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc ;==>WM_NOTIFY Func _LV_PopUpMenu() $MenuContext = _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup(40) _GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem($MenuContext, 0, "Dialog 1, item 1", $ahLVMenu[0]) _GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem($MenuContext, 1, "Dialog 1, item 2", $ahLVMenu[1]) _GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem($MenuContext, 2, "Dialog 1, item 3", $ahLVMenu[2]) _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu($MenuContext, $TestWindow1) _GUICtrlMenu_DestroyMenu($MenuContext) Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc ;==>_LV_PopUpMenu Func _LV_PopUpMenu2() $MenuContext2 = _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup(40) _GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem($MenuContext2, 0, "Dialog 2, item 1", $ahLVMenu2[0]) _GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem($MenuContext2, 1, "Dialog 2, item 2", $ahLVMenu2[1]) _GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem($MenuContext2, 2, "Dialog 2, item 3", $ahLVMenu2[2]) _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu($MenuContext2, $TestWindow2) _GUICtrlMenu_DestroyMenu($MenuContext2) Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc ;==>_LV_PopUpMenu2
      I have two window dialogs and two listview controls defined.
      Each listview control has its own popup menu and menu items.
      The code above works fine as long as both window dialogs are visible.
      You can right-click on each listview control and you get the designated menu popped up and if you select an item, the message for the specific item is being written into the console frame for it.
      However, if you close window 2, and attempt to trigger the options in the popup menu for window 1, you will notice that the notification messages are no longer being triggered at all.
      The popup menu becomes visible if you right-click the area and disappears if you select an option, but the control item no longer sends a notification which means that the attached events for the trapping are no longer being executed.
      Now if you switch the code snippets of the window frames being generated, you will notice you can achieve the same issue the other way round, which means that context menu item notifications are being received and trigger an event routine as long as window 1 would then in that case remain open.
      So it seems that whichever window is generated the last, that window somehow seems to get attached to the notification messages that are being send by the dummy controls for the context menu items.
      Do i misinterpret something here, is there a fix for this issue or did i encountered some kind of bug inside Autoit3?

      Hi there, this is supposed to work as a toast, called by functions and such. Kinda looks like the windows 10 notification, as intended,
      and the only problem is that i can't find a way to hide the taskbar button.

      Hi all,
      Because i wanted to download and read remote files through proxy servers and if needed use advanced authentication methods (e.g. NTLM), i made some useful functions that utilize standalone wget or curl executables (included).
      http://publictoolsrepo.sourceforge.net/apps/wget-curl.zip - i was unable to attach it
      #include <Array.au3> #include 'udf_wget_curl.au3' ; gui examples ; =============================================================================================================================== ; a simple input window Dim $sVALUE = __gui_create_input_dialog('this is the title of the window', 'this is the text shown on the window', 'name', '', False, -1, -1, False, FileRead('randomtext.txt'), 'a optional default value') ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $sVALUE = ' & $sVALUE & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console ; a simple input window with the screen dimmed and the field is passworded Dim $sVALUE = __gui_create_input_dialog('another nice popup', 'this one shows the screen dimmed and the size of the window is relative to the text length' & @CRLF & 'this one shows the screen dimmed and the size of the window is relative to the text length', 'password? :)', '', True, -1, -1, True) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $sVALUE = ' & $sVALUE & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console ; a simple combo window Dim $sVALUE = __gui_create_combo_dialog('the title', 'the text', 'choose your food', '', False, -1, -1, False, '', 'Pizza|Burger|Raw Code', '') ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $sVALUE = ' & $sVALUE & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console ; a auth window :) Dim $aRESULT = __gui_create_auth_dialog('this looks legit', 'your data is safe with me ;)', 0, True, False, False) _ArrayDisplay($aRESULT) ; a progress window example Dim $aPROGRESS = __gui_progress_create('text displayed', 10, -1, 10, 'this footnote text is optional!')

      Most functions are written and designed using a modular approach so they should be easily implementable.
       
      The following dependencies are also included and i would like to credit the authors.

      I need to input text and submit a form that popups.  Here is what I got so far but it is not working.
      ; Find Phone Popup $pIE = WinGetTitle("[Active]") $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($pIE,"phoneFindListForm") $oSelect = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "searchField0") _IEAction($oSelect, "focus") _IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, "numplan.dnorpattern") When this runs I get the following error.
      IE.au3 T3.0-1 Warning from function _IEFormElementGetObjByName, $_IESTATUS_NoMatch --> IE.au3 T3.0-1 Error from function _IEAction(focus), $_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType --> IE.au3 T3.0-1 Error from function _IEFormElementOptionSelect, $_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType --> IE.au3 T3.0-1 Error from function _IEFormGetObjByName, $_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType --> IE.au3 T3.0-1 Error from function _IEFormElementGetObjByName, $_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType --> IE.au3 T3.0-1 Error from function _IEAction(focus), $_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType --> IE.au3 T3.0-1 Error from function _IEFormElementOptionSelect, $_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType I am thinking my issue is getting the _IEFormGetObjByName() correct and the rest of the script will work.  Once the form is submitted the focus should go back to the original form.
