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

The UDF functions are much more powerful than the built-in functions. Look at _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu (). Add a new post if you need more help.

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

case $idMenuInfo
msgBox(0, "", "")

@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, 
      I am new to AutoIT scripting and I am still learning. I am trying to communicate with a Labview application that acts like a server. it basically takes commands from the client. But for some commands, it also send back some data. 
      When i am sending commands from my script, i can see that the labview is getting them. But i am not able to get anything back. I tried different code pieces that are available online in the forum.
      This is the working piece of code which i been using to send data.
      #cs This module is used to establish tcp connection with lab view #ce #include <File.au3> Func SendCmd($cmd) TCPStartup() Local $IpAddress="192.168.10.101" Local $Port="5353" $Labview = TCPConnect($IpAddress,$Port) If @error Then ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPConnect error number ( ' & @error & ' ).' & @CRLF) TCPCloseSocket($Labview) TCPShutdown() Exit EndIf TCPSend($Labview, $cmd & @CRLF) TCPCloseSocket($Labview) TCPShutdown() EndFunc SendCmd("wt42d")  
      This is slightly modified code to send and receive data, which is not working. I am not getting any response back
      SendCmd("galil") Func SendCmd($cmd) TCPStartup() Local $IpAddress="192.168.10.101" Local $Port="5353" $Labview = TCPConnect($IpAddress,$Port) If @error Then ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPConnect error number ( ' & @error & ' ).' & @CRLF) TCPCloseSocket($Labview) TCPShutdown() Exit EndIf TCPSend($Labview, $cmd & @CRLF) $ip = @IPAddress1 ;create listening socket $Listensocket = TCPListen($ip, $Port) ConsoleWrite("Listening to Socket - " & $Listensocket & @CRLF) If $Listensocket = -1 Then ConsoleWrite("Exiting..." & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ;Accept incoming clients and recieve info While 1 $connectedsocket = TCPAccept($Listensocket) ConsoleWrite("Connecting to Socket - " & $connectedsocket & "Error -" & @error & @CRLF) If $ConnectedSocket >= 0 Then $ip2 = TCPRecv($connectedsocket,1000000) EndIf WEnd TCPCloseSocket($connectedsocket) TCPCloseSocket($Labview) TCPShutdown() EndFunc I am not getting anything back. I am getting the following output in the console
      +>Setting Hotkeys...--> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+BREAK to Stop. Listening to Socket - 544 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0 its going through that loop forever. i need to force stop it.
      But when i open putty and send the same command, i am getting response right away. 
      Can someone please help me with that.
      Thanks in advance

      Hi there, 
      I'm new in AutoIt forms and using AutoIt to automate desktop application (able to automate the application normally but facing issue when I've to re-run the application twice within the same script...so need help in this please)
      here is the steps then followed by the issue in a brief : 
      1- run application . 
      2- do some actions (click menus,activate windows,set texts..)
      3- close the application. 
      4- run the application again & access the same controls.
      5- open the same windows again (like step 2)
      6- perform some validations (by getting texts from some text boxes)
      7- close the application again (and repeat 1-7 for 15 times in average )
      The issue 
      * all controls are accessible in the first run and actions done successfully on controls (for steps 1-3) BUT from the second run of the application from step-4 it's able to set focus only the main application window.
      Note: only unique properties used to while mapping the controls. 
      Error that appear in the console :
      UIAWrappers.au3" (1673) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: $x = Int($t[1] + ($t[3] / 2)) $x = Int($t[1] + (^ ERROR
