GUI on label hover

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm working on a custom RSS app to sort of freshen up my AutoIT knowledge. Most of it is going well and I have a much better understanding of coding concepts since I've been working with C#; However, I've hit a slight wall with creating a hover effect on mouseover of a label in the top menu area. Maybe there's something about my for loop that I'm not understanding? Not sure how to resolve it but if someone has a hint about what the issue might be, I'd be forever grateful! :D

So here's the function I created from someone's example on the forum. It works by itself in the program while loop just not with a for loop. I pass the array $button which contains the three label names. Then $fOver is an array initialized as [False, False, False] to correspond to all three buttons. I've checked with some ConsoleWrites the correct IDs are passing in

Func setHover($button)

   $aCInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo($Form1)
   For $i = 0 To $i = 2 Step +1
      If $aCInfo[4] = $button[$i] Then
         If $fOver[$i] = False Then
            GUICtrlSetColor($button[$i], 0xA6A6A6)
            $fOver[$i] = True
         EndIf
      Else
         If $fOver[$i] = True Then
            GUICtrlSetColor($button[$i], $FontThemeColor)
            $fOver[$i] = False
         EndIf
      EndIf
   Next

EndFunc

I achieved some success with all three as nested if statements but would like to try and condense in the event of expansion on the menu bar.

Func setHover($button)

   $aCInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo($Form1)

         If $aCInfo[4] = $button[0] Then
            If $fOver[0] = False Then
               GUICtrlSetColor($button[0], 0xA6A6A6)
               $fOver[0] = True
            EndIf
         Else
            If $fOver[0] = True Then
               GUICtrlSetColor($button[0], $FontThemeColor)
               $fOver[0] = False
            EndIf
         EndIf

         If $aCInfo[4] = $button[1] Then
            If $fOver[1] = False Then
               GUICtrlSetColor($button[1], 0xA6A6A6)
               $fOver[1] = True
            EndIf
         Else
            If $fOver[1] = True Then
               GUICtrlSetColor($button[1], $FontThemeColor)
               $fOver[1] = False
            EndIf
         EndIf

         If $aCInfo[4] = $button[2] Then
            If $fOver[2] = False Then
               GUICtrlSetColor($button[2], 0xA6A6A6)
               $fOver[2] = True
            EndIf
         Else
            If $fOver[2] = True Then
               GUICtrlSetColor($button[2], $FontThemeColor)
               $fOver[2] = False
            EndIf
         EndIf

EndFunc

 

Thanks for taking the time to read my post!

Not many people will spend time on this when they have to re-create code and guess variables, just to make it run.

Post a reproducible script to get answers, if any at all.

Sorry, didn't see the reply immediately! I ended up finding the solution though if anyone would like the code! :)

My apologies @careca, I should have given more context to the problem. Thank you for taking the time to respond anyway! 

#EDIT to everything beneath here. Fixed code causing GUI flicker.

Just pass this function from your program While loop! :) No flickering on any of the interface. There was flickering that was caused by the original function setting the last hovered items color over and over and over.

setHover(GUIGetCursorInfo($Form1))

The solution ended up being ridiculously simple. *Facepalm*

#Region ================== Global GUI Vars ===========================

Global $buttonhovers[3] = [$updateRSS,$addRSS,$deleteRSS]
Global $lasthover = -1

#EndRegion =============== Global GUI Vars ===========================

Func setHover($formCursor)

   If($formcursor[4] <> $lasthover) Then
      If(buttonSelect($lasthover) = True) Then
         GUICtrlSetColor($lasthover, $FontThemeColor)
      EndIf
      If(buttonSelect($formcursor[4]) = True) Then
         GUICtrlSetColor($formcursor[4], 0xA6A6A6)
      EndIf
      $lasthover = $formcursor[4]
   EndIf

EndFunc

Func buttonSelect($hovered)

   For $element in $buttonhovers
      If($hovered = $element) Then Return True
   Next

      Return False

EndFunc

You could place this in the while loop, and then whenever the cursor id = the label, change color, else, normal color.

Anyway, i figure if you're happy with it, nice.
