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?

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)

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.

 I never ignore your example.

if you have an other suggestions please give it to me

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

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

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,
      for couple of years I'm using  Jos script for sending reports, email with excel attachment. But from last week i'm getting this error when sending excel or word attachment
      message has lines too long for transport jpeg, pdf works with no problems, any sugestion ?
    • By diepfeile
      I'm using the following:
      Autoit 3.3.14.5
      newly installed Beta 3.3.15.5
      SQlite version 3380000 aka 3.38.0
      I put sqlite3.dll and sqlite3_x64.dll in C:\Windows\System32 since many scripts depend on them.


      I extended the output of _SQLite_Startup()
      with:
      ConsoleWrite("@AutoItX64 " & @AutoItX64 & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("$sDll_Filename " & $sDll_Filename & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("_SQLite_LibVersion=" & _SQLite_LibVersion() & @CRLF)

      Also using the script from https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_SQLite_Startup.htm for testing.

       
      >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0


      Why doesn't it work in 32bit, despite me having the 32bit sqlite.dll? Autoit urges running scripts in 32bit mode and Scite starts scripts just in 32bit mode without the flag?
      With #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=Y it just works, both normal Autoit and beta!

      Is there any way to run any 3rd party application silently in background without the GUI getting in the front ?
      I was implementing angry-ip scanner with autoit & wanted the angry-ip application to run in background quietly as I am copying its output to other file on completion. is there any way to achieve my query?

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.26 contains 214 functions divided into these topics:
      window, desktop and monitor GUI, mouse and color GUI controls including graphical buttons (jpg, png) logics and mathematics include constants string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info Change log and files section  on the PAL website (SourceForge).
      A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.
