Multi use button for mp3, file, exe

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, I haven't been here in a while and recently picked up my old project. Still an FNG!

To the point: I want to be able to push the button and either play an mp3, open a file, or open an exe program (all with the same button). The problem is that I don't know how to code for that at "case 1"

        Case 1                                                                                                                                             
            Local $sRead = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default")                                
            SoundPlay($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                     <-------------------------------
            Run($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                                 <------------------------------- This 'Run' doesn't work even by itself!

See code below for layout. If you need more information I will attach more code or answer any questions. Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Much Respect,

Pike

 

Func _HandleButton()

    $iClickCount += 1
    $iTimer = TimerInit()

    AdlibRegister("CheckButtonPress", $CheckTime)

EndFunc

Func CheckButtonPress()

    If TimerDiff($iTimer) < $CheckTime Or $iTimer = 0 Then Return

    Switch $iClickCount
        Case 1
            Local $sRead = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default")
            SoundPlay($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)
            Run($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)

        Case 2
         MsgBox(0, "INFORMATION:", "Choose the file you want designated to this button")
         Local $sFileOpenDialog = FileOpenDialog(0, @ScriptDir & "\", "All (*.*)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST + $FD_MULTISELECT)
         If @error Then
         MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file(s) were selected.")
         EndIf
         Local $sFileName = InputBox("INFORMATION:", "Please Name Your File?" & @CRLF _
            & @CRLF _
            & "6 Characters or Less", "")

         IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\config.ini", "Config", "One", $sFileOpenDialog)
         IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\config.ini", "Config", "NameOne", $sFileName)
    EndSwitch

    $iClickCount = 0
    AdlibUnRegister()

EndFunc

Help file will guide you...

SoundPlay ( "filename" [, wait = 0] )

Run ( "program" [, "workingdir" [, show_flag [, opt_flag]]] )

@HotKeyPressed Last hotkey pressed. See the HotKeySet() function 

No wonder your code is not working...

@Nine Thanks for replying. I am about as new as it gets, which is why it's amazing that I've gotten as far as I have. So what you said I only halfway understand. I guess maybe if I explain a little further it might help you to help me haha.

I tried this and it 'kind of' works...

            SoundPlay($sRead)
            ShellExecute($sRead)
            @HotKeyPressed

 

The problem is that if I have designated an mp3 to the button it will 'soundplay' the file and it will 'shellexecute' it. However, if I designate an exe program it works the way intended, because obviously it can't 'soundplay'. How do I stop the code at 'soundplay' if an mp3 is designated to the button???

You can do checks for the extension and add conditions to some specific situations.

This is one way

$File = @DesktopDir&'\123.mp3'
$Ext = StringRight($File, 3)
ConsoleWrite('Extension: '&$Ext &@CRLF)
If $Ext = 'mp3' Then
ConsoleWrite('Act on the mp3 file' &@CRLF)
ElseIf $Ext = 'exe' Then
ConsoleWrite('Act on the exe file' &@CRLF)
Else
ConsoleWrite('Act on the files that aren"t exe or mp3' &@CRLF)
EndIf

@careca Thanks for your reply as well... I'll start working on implementing that code into my code. I'm sure it'll work fine, of course, as a beginner I'll have to put in some work. Thanks very much!

For anyone who makes it to this page hoping for an answer this is the way I implemented the code from careca. Remember, my code is probably *hi* considering I'm a newbie, but maybe you can take something from it. *This is code based on communicating with a config.ini file...

Case 1
            Local $FolderPath = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default")
            Local $sRead = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default")
            Local $Ext = StringRight($sRead, 3)
                ConsoleWrite('Extension: '&$Ext &@CRLF)
            If $Ext = 'mp3' Then
                SoundPlay($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)
            ElseIf $Ext = 'exe' Then
                ShellExecute($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)
            ElseIf $Ext = 0 Then
                ShellExecute($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)
            EndIf

The thing I'm looking around for now, is how to list the different extensions, instead of having to utilize an "If" "ElseIf" statement for each one. Other than that, Good Luck and Have Fun.

What do you mean by "list the different extensions"?

      Good morning,
       
      I am trying to align a two-line text in a button so that it would be centered in the button but can't succeed to do it for the vertical part.
      Can someone tell me what I do wrong ?
      Here is my code:
      $btn3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Execute " & @LF & " file 1", 100, 65, 60, 50, _ BitOr($BS_CENTER,$BS_BOTTOM,$BS_MULTILINE)) and here is the resulting layout I get in my window.
      I tried to follow the help, made a lot of different parameter combinations (here it's `$BS_BOTTOM`, but I tried `$BS_VCENTER` and `$BS_TOP`), still get the same result : vertical alignement is a no go for me.
      Can someone help ?
      TIA
      Gilles

      So basically need to pull text from a .txt file or .sql and use that text to replace something within a different file.
       
      First File:
      jumps
       
      Or:
      Text1 = jumps
      Text2 = fence
      Second File:
      My Dog XXXXX over the YYYYY.
       
       
      After Script:
      My Dog jumps over the fence
       
      I have found a good start, I'm basic programmer at best, I have some experience but this gets out of my wheel house.
       
      Any help is appreciated.

      Hi!
       
      I am writing some GUI and i need to use images as buttons, but with text on them (text is from INI file).
      Part with button looks like this:
      $ankieta1 = GUICtrlCreateButton($txtAnk1, 100,350,765,164) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 22, 800, -1, "Arial") ;GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xffffff) $hImageBtn_1 = _GUIImageList_Create(765, 164) _GUIImageList_AddBitmap($hImageBtn_1, "c:\path\to\ankieta_clean.bmp") _GUICtrlButton_SetImageList($ankieta1, $hImageBtn_1, 4) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "On_Ankieta1") The problem - if i uncomment GUICtrlSetColor, color of text changes, but button is just plain gray (no image). How i can change text color not touching image on a button here?

      Hey All,
      Yes, this is an odd request. 
      But is there a way to bulk up the size of the compiled program? 
      I know many want to reduce it's size, but I want to increase it.
      What methods do you suggest?
