Slow GUI After Multiple Actions

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Maybe you can help me with something small.
It is not terrible but it slows down my script and after a while even crash the script.

First i explain what i have;
I have a GUI with a lot of GUICtrlCreateInput controls, lets say 600 pieces.
All the controls are hidden when the GUI is displayed, i have 3 buttons attached to 200 pieces each.

When i press button-1 the first 200 controls are showed,
When i press button-2 the first 200 controls are hidden and the next 200 controls are showed,
etc, etc.

This is working perfectly but after a while the GUI is getting slower and slower.
After a while the controls aren't responding anymore and the script crashes.

When i compile the script to 64-Bits version the speed is a lot better but you can still see the script slowing down each time i use the buttons.

I think there has to be a buffer somewhere that is filling each time i show and hide the controls, but how can i clear that buffer without restarting the script?

Deleting and re-creating the controls didn't help, deleting the entire gui (and controls) and re-creating it didn't help also.
The only thing that is working is restarting the script.

Thanks guys!

PS: If you need a working example i can add it to this topic, just let me know. It is not rocket science, i just create the controls and show/hide them with a while loop and 3 buttons.

Blueman,

Try to also toggle the disable\Enable state for the controls which you Hide\Show So that they dont interact with your loop ..

Blueman,

Having so many controls and hiding/showing them has always been slow. You might like to look at this recent thread where someone wanted to have multiple inputs - it turned out that a ListView with my GUIListViewEx UDF (link on my sig) was able to replace the multiple inputs without creating the same problem.

I had the same problem, described here 

 

and I managed to fix it with the GUIListViewEx  as @Melba23 suggested. I have rewrite the code and it is all flawless now!

 

Thank you @Melba23, @Blueman, I am sure you will be able to to the same :)

MilenP,

Thanks for the endorsement. And for providing the link to the relevant thread - I thought I had done so but it appears not!

Guys,

Thanks for the perfect sollution!
I have tried that and it is working perfectly, and very quick.

Didn't know that there was a (GUIListViewEx) Function that makes the list editable, what a great invention.

Thanks all :)

Your The man, man! :)

I just have one simple question, hope that i may ask you this.
Is there a way to change the value in a certain column by clicking on a button?

So Something Like:

_GUIListViewEx_ChangeFieldValue($List_Index, $row, $col, $newvalue)

Now i have looked at a way to do this by updating the array and then 'redraw' the list but this is a lot of work for every column.

Thanks in advance!


Greetings Wouter

Blueman,

The _GUIListViewEx_ChangeItem function should do what you require.

May I suggest looking at the #CURRENT# section at the top of the UDF include file - it lists all the available functions within the UDF. And as with all of my UDFs each function has its own detailed header explaining the parameters and return values.

Melba,

I have literally searched the whole UDF for a couple of hours for this function.
I don't know why but i didn't saw it,.. what a stupid mistake from my side!

Thanks for the answer, as Noobie as the question was,.

You helped me a lot, thank you.

      Update: Download the latest version here.
      As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
      Here's my code so far:
      ; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.

      Buttons on GUI to perform different tasks. SETUP is a task that involves displaying another GUI, doing calculations, writing lines to 2 external files, displaying information on GUI labels.  The info from the displayed GUI (quantity made and job completed YES or NO) must be included on the written lines. I cannot get the script to run synchronously (waterfall execution 1st one ends before 2nd one starts.) That means lines written to the files do not contain the required data.  I have read through FORUM and thought by inserting a boolean value and changing TRUE FALSE that I could solve this issue. I would have to set/reset the boolean before every function call to make it work. I've tried using Sleep but that just slows everything down and makes main GUI look unresponsive
      Is there a trick or tip someone can provide that forces synchronous execution?
      I am using OPT GUIOnEventMode
      Thank you for any insight into this issue.

      Hello everyone,
      I encountered this strange issue while working on a freelance project, I cannot give you the webpage/website on which this is happening because it is an internal site which is inaccessible externally. I am attempting to create a GUI with an IE control embedded in it, but when I navigate to the desired address, it shows a blank white page.
      The webpage does load if I use a different browser or normal (non-embedded) IE instance.
      I managed to get my hands on the source of the blank page:
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <html> <head> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="res://ieframe.dll/ErrorPageTemplate.css" /> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> <title>Navigationen blev annulleret</title> <script src="res://ieframe.dll/errorPageStrings.js" language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> </script> <script src="res://ieframe.dll/httpErrorPagesScripts.js" language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> </script> </head> <body onLoad="javascript:navCancelInit(); "> <table width="730" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"> <!-- Error title --> <tr> <td id="infoIconAlign" width="60" align="left" valign="top" rowspan="2"> <img src="res://ieframe.dll/info_48.png" id="infoIcon" alt="Oplysningsikon"> </td> <td id="mainTitleAlign" valign="middle" align="left" width="*"> <h1 id="mainTitle">Navigationen til websiden blev annulleret</h1> </td> </tr> <tr> <!-- This row is for HTTP status code, as well as the divider--> <td id="errorCodeAlign" class="errorCodeAndDivider" align="right">&nbsp; <div class="divider"></div> </td> </tr> <!-- Error Body --> <!-- What you can do --> <tr> <td> &nbsp; </td> <td id="whatToTryAlign" valign="top" align="left"> <h2 id="whatToTry">Prøv at:</h2> </td> </tr> <!-- refresh page --> <tr> <td > &nbsp; </td> <td id="refreshPageAlign" align="left" valign="middle"> <h4> <table> <tr> <td valign="top"> <img src="res://ieframe.dll/bullet.png" border="0" alt="" class="actionIcon"> </td> <td valign="top"> <span id="navCancelContainer"></span><noscript id="refreshPage">Opdatere siden.</noscript> </td> </tr> </table> </h4> </td> </tr> </table> </body> </html> The ieframe.dll resources are a point of interest. I am not sure how the server is able to detect the embedded instance of IE ...
      Any suggestions? Here is a basic outline of the script:
      #include <IE.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Main() While True Sleep(1000) WEnd Func Main() ; Create GUI $hGUI = GUICreate("", $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT, $iLeft, $iTop, $WS_POPUP) $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() ;$oIE = _IECreate() ; This works, but it is not embedded in the GUI GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT) GUISetState() ; Navigate to the URL and authenticate _IENavigate($oIE, $URL) EndFunc Thank you for the advice in advance!
