Can we create a single context menu on more than one control?

Recommended Posts

Hello my friends
Can we create a single context menu on more than one item?
For example, a context menu includes standardized options on more than one control, such as buttons or check boxes
to Create a context menu on one item am using this function
GUICtrlCreateContextMenu ($ HWND)
How to link it with more than one element please?
or if we can't do that, please give me a solution
so i tried to add an context menus to all the controls but the script will be long, for that if their are any solutions i hope to give it to me
thanks in advanced

This is a way to create the same context menu for multiple items. Essentially create the controls on an array, then loop through them and create the context for each one that way.

; right click on gui to bring up context Menu.
; right click on the "ok" button to bring up a controll specific context menu.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
GUICreate("My GUI Context Menu", 300, 200)
;=============================================================================
Global $Controls[3]
$Controls[0] = GUICtrlCreateButton('1', 10, 10, 50, 20)
$Controls[1] = GUICtrlCreateButton('2', 10, 40, 50, 20)
$Controls[2] = GUICtrlCreateButton('3', 10, 70, 50, 20)
;=============================================================================
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
;=============================================================================
For $c = 0 To UBound($Controls)-1
Local $idContextmenu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($Controls[$c])
Local $idNewsubmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("new", $idContextmenu)
Local $idNewsubmenuText = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("text", $idNewsubmenu)
Local $idMenuInfo = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Info", $idContextmenu)
ConsoleWrite($Controls[$c] &@CRLF)
Next
;=============================================================================
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
    GUIDelete()
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Could you post a reproducible script? One where i dont have to put all the necessary includes and so on?

Also, could you enclose your code with the <code> frame/tool? It's right next to the smiley face.

dear @careca
 I never ignore your example.
but on this code just the items on the last Context menu can use it because the vars are the same
if you have an other suggestions please give it to me

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
Example()

Func Example()
GUICreate("My GUI Context Menu", 300, 200)
Global $Controls[3]
$Controls[0] = GUICtrlCreateButton('1', 10, 10, 50, 20)
$Controls[1] = GUICtrlCreateButton('2', 10, 40, 50, 20)
$Controls[2] = GUICtrlCreateButton('3', 10, 70, 50, 20)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

For $c = 0 To UBound($Controls)-1
Local $idContextmenu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($Controls[$c])
Local $idNewsubmenu =  GUICtrlCreateMenu("new", $idContextmenu)
Local $idNewsubmenuText = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("text", $idNewsubmenu)
Local $idMenuInfo = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Info", $idContextmenu)
Next

Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
case $idMenuInfo
msgBox(0, "", "")
EndSwitch
WEnd

@nacerbaaziz, Please Tidy your code and use AutoIt3 in stead of plain text in the CodeBox when posting sourcecode. :)

Thanks Jos

Can you clarify what you mean? Maybe i didn't understand it correctly, i got the idea that what you want to do is create the same context menu for many items.

This is what it does, puts a context menu in the 3 buttons.

I dont know what you want to do later on, but you can differentiate between the buttons.

50%...  Correct color coding but totally unreadable as the script isn't tidied. You need to learn to properly format code to make it soooo much easier to read and understand!

Hi nacerbaaziz,

Here is a way to do it. You can add as many controls ID's as you wish in " >>>>>> The 'OR' line <<<<<<"

$hGUI = GUICreate("Menu", 400, 300)
$id_Label_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Right click to get options in menu", 100, 50, 165)
$id_Label_2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Right click to get the same options", 100, 110, 165)

$id_Label_hard_to_find = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 1, 1, 1, 1)
$id_Context = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($id_Label_hard_to_find)
$id_Open = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Open", $id_Context)
$id_Save = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Save the &file....", $id_Context)
$id_Cut = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Move the &file....", $id_Context)
$hMenu = GUICtrlGetHandle($id_Context)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $aInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo()
    If Not @error And $aInfo[3] = 1 And _
      ($aInfo[4] = $id_Label_1 Or $aInfo[4] = $id_Label_2) Then ; >>>>>> The 'OR' line <<<<<<
        $mPos = MouseGetPos()
        DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "TrackPopupMenuEx", "hwnd", $hMenu, _
            "int", 0, "int", $mPos[0], "int", $mPos[1], "hwnd", $hGUI, "ptr", 0)
    EndIf

    Switch GUIGetMSG()
        Case -3
            Exit

        Case $id_Open
            OpenFunc()

        Case $id_Save
            SaveFunc()

        Case $id_Cut
            MoveFunc()
    EndSwitch
Wend

Func OpenFunc()
    Msgbox(0, "OpenFunc", "Here we are #1")
EndFunc

Func SaveFunc()
    Msgbox(0, "SaveFunc", "Here we are #2")
EndFunc

Func MoveFunc()
    Msgbox(0, "MoveFunc", "Here we are #3")
EndFunc

Good luck :)

careca, If you had tested your own code you would have seen that it does not work for buttons 1 and 2. You do not save ControlIds for the corresponding context menu items and are therefore unable to detect when the menu items are clicked.

      Hi, 
      This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
      Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
      Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list             local $index=0             $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list             ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================             ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????              For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items                 If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then                     $index = $i                     exitloop                 EndIf              Next              ;===================================================             ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
      _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
      Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
      Please advise and thanks

      I have several context menus that's been built using _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup() and _GUICtrlMenu_AddMenuItem().
      When using _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup() it returns the identifier of the clicked item, sure. But it blocks the main loop while the menu is open.
      When using _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup($MNS_MODELESS) it returns immediately (of course), but I cannot figure out how/where to read the item that was clicked. Is there a Windows Message (WM) somewhere that is triggered? I've spend an entire day trying to figure out how to do this, but I'm not getting anywhere. My google fu is depleted (I must have tried like hundreds of script variations today), I'm about to smash my keyboard and just go to bed, and abandon the entire endeavor of making pretty menus and go back to using Koda and forget about using menu icons, colors,  etc.
      Anyone wanna help me out with how to read the clicked item? Before I smash my keyboard, please...
       
      Example script here:
       
      #include <GuiMenu.au3> #include <WinAPIError.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> GUIRegisterMsg($WM_CONTEXTMENU, "_WM_CONTEXTMENU") Global $idMenuItem = 10000, $counter = 0 Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Menu test", 400, 300) Global $hListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 2, 2, 396, 200) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;~ Global $hMenuContext = _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup() Global $hMenuContext = _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup($MNS_MODELESS) _GUICtrlMenu_AddMenuItem($hMenuContext, "Menu item", $idMenuItem) Global $hTimer = TimerInit() Do If TimerDiff($hTimer)>200 Then $counter += 1 ConsoleWrite($counter & " " ) $hTimer = TimerInit() EndIf Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Func _WM_CONTEXTMENU($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam) #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $lParam Switch $wParam Case GUICtrlGetHandle($hListview) ConsoleWrite( @CRLF & "_GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu = " & _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu($hMenuContext, $wParam, -1, -1, 1, 1, 2) & @CRLF) EndSwitch EndFunc

      is it possible to make a wall chams in rainbow six siege using autoit scripts? tell me please and how . 
    • By Rskm
      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.
