_ArrayDisplay() and MsgBox() at same time

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :)
I wanted to display a Msgbox (with Retry/Cancel options) while _ArrayDisplay() is being shown.
This allows the user to choose an option, with a complete error message in Msgbox, while he can analyze the results in the _ArrayDisplay() window, scroll into it etc...

To try this, this is a quick script I prepared, unfinished, but you got the idea :

#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Global $aArray[4] = ["element 0", "element 4", "element 2", "element 3"]

AdlibRegister("MyAdLibFunc", 500) ; each half second (500ms)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Elements")

Func MyAdLibFunc()
    If WinExists("Elements") Then
        MsgBox(BitOr($MB_TOPMOST, $MB_RETRYCANCEL), "Error in Array", _
            "Element 4 shouldn't be placed in Row 1")
EndFunc   ;==>MyAdLibFunc


Is there another easy way you're thinking of, instead of using AdlibRegister ?
(though it shouldn't consume too much CPU load as it's called each half second)

Don't use _ArrayDisplay for this, create your own listview. _ArrayDisplay is a blocking function and should only be used for troubleshooting an array's contents. If you want your script to do other things while displaying the contents of an array without using a workaround, you should build it yourself.

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Try this:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6 -w 7

#pragma compile(AutoItExecuteAllowed, True)

Opt( "MustDeclareVars", 1 )

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>


Func Example()
  Local $hGui = GUICreate( "My GUI", 250, 100 )

  GUIRegisterMsg( $WM_USER, "WM_USER" )
  Local $sMbTitle = "Error in Array", $sMbText = "Element 4 shouldn't be placed in Row 1"
  Run( @AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "DllCall(''user32.dll'', ''lresult'', ''SendMessageW'', ''hwnd'', ""' & $hGui & '"", ''uint'', ""' & $WM_USER & '"", ''wparam'', ""' & 0 & '"", ''lparam'', MsgBox( ""' & $MB_TOPMOST+$MB_RETRYCANCEL & '"", ""' & $sMbTitle & '"", ""' & $sMbText & '"" ))"' )


  Local $aArray = ["element 0", "element 4", "element 2", "element 3"]
  _ArrayDisplay( $aArray )

  While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()

  GUIDelete( $hGui )

Func WM_USER( $hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam )
  Switch $lParam
    Case $IDCANCEL
      ConsoleWrite( "MsgBox Cancel" & @CRLF )
    Case $IDRETRY
      ConsoleWrite( "MsgBox Retry" & @CRLF )
  #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam
