I am trying to set Accelerator keys from an array.

I select the KEY and CONTROL from a SQLite table, the Array looks like that generated for the Helpfile, but I can't get the CONTROLS to resolve...

I though about Assign & Eval, but not sure if that's a step in the right direction. IsDeclared shows that the $var exists in Local Scope -1.  


Local $Main = GUICreate("Custom MsgBox", 225, 80)

    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please select a button.", 10, 10)
    Local $idButton_Yes = GUICtrlCreateButton("Yes", 10, 50, 65, 25)
    Local $idButton_No = GUICtrlCreateButton("No", 80, 50, 65, 25)
    Local $idButton_Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 150, 50, 65, 25)

    Local $query, $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns
    $query = "" ;reset
    $query = "Select hotkey_key, hotkey_ctrl from mytable where mykeys = 'hotkey' ; " ;
    ; Query
    $iRval = _SQLite_GetTable2d($sqliteDb, $query, $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns)
    If $iRval = $SQLITE_OK Then
        Local $sizeofHotkeys = UBound($aResult) - 1
        ConsoleWrite("$sizeofHotkeys " & $sizeofHotkeys & @CRLF)
        If $sizeofHotkeys > 0 Then
            Local $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys][2]
            For $i = 0 To $sizeofHotkeys - 1
                $j = $i + 1
                ; replace friendly text with code -- ! alt + Shift ^ Ctrl # Windows
                $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Alt", "!")
                $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Shift", "+")
                $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Ctrl", "^")
                $main__aAccelKeys[$i][0] = $aResult[$j][0] ;---
                $main__aAccelKeys[$i][1] = $aResult[$j][1] ;---
;~ Row|Col 0|Col 1
;~ Row 0|F2|$idButton_Yes
;~ Row 1|F3|$idButton_No

            Local $rv = GUISetAccelerators($main__aAccelKeys, $Main)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Display the GUI.


Please note that this is a modified Helpfile example.

The Helpfile specifies (a) WinHandle and (b) last Gui created.

--> the example uses a control not a WinHandle and (b) what happens with ChildGuis? Also, the HelpFile specifies lower case, yet the examples show "{F1}" upper case?

Also, is there a way to check the result of the GuiSetAccelerator function? 

Note, if I add these to lines after the FOR loop, then the F1 works, and the DebugArrayDisplays shows control 4... not it's name... So I am in the right place, but my $vars names do not convert to their control numbers in the GUI

            $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys - 1][0] = "{F1}" ; -- -- use the extra row for the F1
            $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys - 1][1] = $ChmHLP   ;---

Hi @Skysnake How do you match the SQLite column hotkey_ctrl with the actual control id in the GUI.  That seems to me the major problem of your approach.  The moment you change your GUI by adding, for example, a label or a button or a dummy, you will need to change your database accordingly.

@Nine Thanks for the reply.

This is true, but a different question.  The issue you refer to here occurs when new functions / controls are created and that needs to be taken care of separately. I am thinking of putting that into an array.

However, right now, I need to get the value out of the SQLite array into the Accelerator array. 

Any ideas?

oh, I just noticed your commented lines after the loop.  So if I understand correctly.  It is the name of the control that you have inside the database, Not the control id, right ?  If it is the case, you could use eval () ?

      I'm using the following:
      newly installed Beta
      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()
      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:(\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0 >Running:(\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(\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!

      I have an Autoit script that lists files from a folder into an array list. Is there a way to separate the filenames by an underscore and include the id, version, name and date into separate columns in Excel.
      Example of filename:
      12345_v1.0_TEST Name [12345]_01.01.2022.html
      12345 would be in one column
      v1.0 would be in another column
      TEST Name [12345] would be in another column
      01.01.2022 would be in another column
      .html would be in another column
      Note: filenames always change each day.
      Here is my code that lists the files into column C and then writes the column Headers into Column D, E, F, G. Just need some help with separating them into columns by the _ delimiter
    • By t0nZ
      I was searching for a way to highlight zones (regions, provinces, counties, etc) on a map, and I don't need  super precise maps so I wrote this script, based on picking up black and white maps (2 colors BW .png or .gif tested) and filling them with colors, writing down a sqlite database to associate zones with names (and other data as well), and reuse the map and the DB to display data, in my example reading a simple .txt file.
      It's all based on this thread  and this other thread.

      So I have two modes:
      The Map "creation mode" : you provide a map image and you start to pick up colors, set "upper level" region/state, and by clicking on a region you fill it and you name it, and all the data are saved on a sqlite DB (auto-created) when you have the map image and a DB with the correct associations, you can switch the "mode" to "show" (as by .ini file) and the script tries to read a "datafile" showing the zone names listed in datafile. The code:

      To test, copy all in a single folder and adjust the mapflooder.ini, also you can add to you includes the _gollog.au3 (used for log, you can avoid it deleting all Gollog() lines)

      It seems  I'm always asking SQL questions in December,  must be a tradition. Here is the latest
      I have a database that is queried to return infomation about software installers and users. I can achieve what I want by calling two queries using _SQLite_QuerySingleRow, and adding the second query to the first returned array using _ArrayAdd. What I want to do is try to do it with one query.
      I don't have any code as I try the queries in SQLitexpert before to obtain the results and layout I require. The one below returns the information I want but the info is duplicated for every name that uses the program. I know this is down to my code
      SELECT [main].[platform].[id], [main].[installer].[path], [main].[package].[type], [main].[installer].[switches], [main].[minwinver].[version], [main].[category].[class], [main].[installer].[install_order], [main].[installer].[id] AS [id1], [main].[installer].[display_name], [main].[installer].[display_version], [main].[installer].[display_description], [main].[user].[username] FROM [main].[installer] INNER JOIN [main].[category] ON [main].[category].[id] = [main].[installer].[category_id] INNER JOIN [main].[installer_user] ON [main].[installer].[id] = [main].[installer_user].[installer_id] INNER JOIN [main].[user] ON [main].[user].[id] = [main].[installer_user].[user_id] INNER JOIN [main].[platform] ON [main].[platform].[id] = [main].[installer].[platform_id] INNER JOIN [main].[package] ON [main].[package].[id] = [main].[installer].[package_id] INNER JOIN [main].[minwinver] ON [main].[minwinver].[id] = [main].[installer].[minwinver_id] WHERE [main].[installer].[display_name] = 'SciTE4AutoIt3' AND [main].[installer].[id] = 5; What I have done is split the sql calls. This one gets the software
      SELECT [main].[platform].[id], [main].[installer].[path], [main].[package].[type], [main].[installer].[switches], [main].[minwinver].[version], [main].[category].[class], [main].[installer].[install_order], [main].[installer].[id] AS [id1], [main].[installer].[display_name], [main].[installer].[display_version], [main].[installer].[display_description] FROM [main].[installer] INNER JOIN [main].[category] ON [main].[category].[id] = [main].[installer].[category_id] INNER JOIN [main].[platform] ON [main].[platform].[id] = [main].[installer].[platform_id] INNER JOIN [main].[package] ON [main].[package].[id] = [main].[installer].[package_id] INNER JOIN [main].[minwinver] ON [main].[minwinver].[id] = [main].[installer].[minwinver_id] WHERE [main].[installer].[display_name] = 'SciTE4AutoIt3' AND [main].[installer].[id] = 5; This one gets the users. The users will be added to a combo so it doesn't matter if it's an array, but I would prefer a delimited string return.
      SELECT group_concat([main].[user].[username]) FROM [main].[installer] INNER JOIN [main].[installer_user] ON [main].[installer].[id] = [main].[installer_user].[installer_id] INNER JOIN [main].[user] ON [main].[user].[id] = [main].[installer_user].[user_id] WHERE [main].[installer].[id] = 5 ORDER BY [main].[installer_user].[user_id]; Is it possible to return the result in the second example along with the third in one array using SQLite. I have been googling and trying different things that are obviously incorrect. I have attached the database in question.
    • By mLipok
      Usually when I collect data from DataBase I need to give EndUser a possibility to select rows which should be taken in the processing loop.
      I was searching on the forum and I'm not able to find any UDF or even example of how to select data from array.
      I have my own solutions but I think they are not worth posting on the forum as it is very old code and I am looking for a better solution.

      Could anybody point me to some examples/solutions ?

      Thank you in advance.
