trouble activating the 2nd GUI (onEvent mode)

Recommended Posts

I am struggling with activating the 2nd GUI.  References of https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Managing_Multiple_GUIs did not help.

Gui2 and controls are created, but the buttons are not active.  I have tried to remove extra code.

Thanks for any help.

I see you have a while loop inside the func NestResultButtonOverlay. Why?

Remove the loop or the script becomes trapped there.


Spoiler

The real issue here is that there can only be one event active at a given time, so when you click on the $iOKButton1 control in the Mainmenu, an Event is fired to show the second menu but the event doesn't end due to the While-Wend. So no other event can be activated from that point on.

Look at the Example in the Wiki https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Managing_Multiple_GUIs how it is done. :)

Thanks - that works.

The loop was added so the script does not end but waits for button press. 

To clarify my understanding: 

  •  the script only needs the loop for the first GUI, 
  • any following GUI needs no loop.

      Hello eveyone,
      I installed the latest version of Autoit (x86 - for greater compatibility) and SciTE.
      Every time I want to generate the GUI code designed in Koda, the program freezes (only Koda, not SciTE).
      Have you ever had this problem? Do you know how to fix it?
      Thanks!

      hello sirs, i've created a tool to the blind users, this tool helps the blind to listen to a audio effect when moving between the GUIs controls on they computers
      where this tool can get the class for the current focus control and play a sound from a folder

      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:

      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.
