[SOLVED] Button doesnt work for first 1-2 seconds or first few tries?

Recommended Posts

So i'm trying to make this "copy" button, well, copy the output, but it doesnt work for the first second or two. At first I thought it was only the exit not working, but I tested the copying too.

Sometimes it takes some time, and some other times it takes multiple clicks.

GUICreate ('Main', 400 , 200)
     GUICtrlCreateInput($out,0,10,400,75,$SS_CENTER)
     GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
     $copy = GUICtrlCreateButton("Copy",150,100,100,50)

        While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
                Exit
        EndSwitch
        $copyb = GUIGetMsg()
   Select
      Case $copyb = $copy
         ClipPut($out)
         Exit
      EndSelect
    WEnd

I think it might have something to do with two GUIGetMsg()'s but i'm very unsure.

Try this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
GUICreate('Main', 400, 200)
$out = GUICtrlCreateInput("Test", 0, 10, 400, 75, $SS_CENTER)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$copy = GUICtrlCreateButton("Copy", 150, 100, 100, 50)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
            Exit
        Case $copy
            ClipPut($out)
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

You are trying to read the GUI messages too many times, one of them is eating all the clicks so the other won't work. You're already reading the GUI messages in the first instance, so use that one for the button detection.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

That worked, thanks! I didn't know that the Select part would work in the switch.
