Very good, thanks for sharing.

I have always thought I should do something with my two Dialog programs, to combine them as one, with added features to be fully featured.

Currently I have one program that creates a MsgBox, providing all the options for the standard AutoIt variations. It has a preview option of course, as well as an option to create a simple error dialog with one click. The other program is a viewer (and text editor), for when you may want to change or preview textual changes of a MsgBox. It will import the settings and export them, but currently doesn't provide a dynamic way to change anything other than typing (plus copy & paste) the text.

That said, maybe someone has already done that here .... I've not looked in a good long while, and no longer keep tabs on the Examples section like I once used to.

Make sure brain is in gear before opening mouth!

This is really one of the best libraries in whole forum, I think.


There is just one mistake, in my opinion:
In line 464 of , I would await

                $vTmp = __advInputBox_objGet($aControls[$i], "selected", -1)    ; "selected" instead of "value"

Hi and thanks :)

See documentation of combo field

  type:  "combo"
  id:    "name" (must be unique, without spaces)
  label: "label text"

  options: ["option0", "option1" ...]
  value: 0|1|...|N OR "option0"|"option1"|...|"optionN"

  style, exstyle, color, bkcolor, font
  labelStyle, labelExStyle, labelColor, labelBkColor, labelFont

I named it "value" (not "selected"). This is to be consistent with other fields.

Same thing for list field.

Yeaaaah, but.....
Using "value" (and the corresponding original line 464 in your code) seems to ADD e.g. the string "0" to the list and selects it.... 😐

Changing your code to "selected" seems to work as expected - at least for me!

Or do I use an old version of your library? I will check this...


Thanks for your quick response,

Changing your example 2 shows what I mean:

; All controls
Func Example2()
;    Local $sJSON = '{ title:"Showcase" font:[10, 600, 0, "Calibri"] controls:[' & _
    Local $sJSON = '{ title:"Showcase" controls:[' & _
        '{type:"label", text:"Enter you personal informations (please :p)"},' & _
        '{type:"input", id:"firstname", label:"First name"},' & _
        '{type:"input", id:"lastname", label:"Last name"},' & _
        '{type:"combo", id:"sex", label:"Sex", options:["Male", "Female"], value:0 selected:-1},' & _ ; selected = 0 for male, = 1 for female ; or you can use the exact same string as in options "Male" or "Female"
        '{type:"date", id:"dob", label:"Date of birth", value:"2020/01/01", style:0},' & _ ; $DTS_SHORTDATEFORMAT
        '{type:"separator"},' & _
        '{type:"edit", id:"address", label:"Address", lines:5},' & _
        '{type:"list", id:"options", label:"Options", options:["First", "Second", "Third"], selected:["First"]}' & _
        '{type:"label" text:"I agree to share my personnal informations with big brother:"}' & _
        '{type:"check", id:"agree", label:"Yes", value:true}' & _

    Local $oRet = advInputBox($sJSON)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(64, "Example1", "Dialog canceled")
        MsgBox(64, "Example1", "Return: " & Json_Encode($oRet, 128))

I guessed "value" being an error because you used "selected" there, but it didn't work.

      it's quite often, that someone asks how to change the texts of the MsgBox buttons or the InputBox buttons or how to change the position of ta MsgBox. Since years I use CBT hooks for that, but now I made a small UDF out of it for the ease of use. Of course you can build your own GUI or use already existing UDFs to do the same, but I like this way and you can hack (hook) the inbuild InputBox.
      #include-once #include <WinAPI.au3> Global Const $tagCBT_CREATEWND = "ptr lpcs;HWND tagCBT_CREATEWND" Global Const $tagCREATESTRUCT = "ptr lpCreateParams;handle hInstance;HWND hMenu;HWND hwndParent;int cy;int cx;int y;int x;LONG style;ptr lpszName;ptr lpszClass;DWORD dwExStyle" Global $g__hProcDlgBox = DllCallbackRegister("__DlgBox_CbtHookProc", "LRESULT", "int;WPARAM;LPARAM") Global $g__TIdDlgBox = _WinAPI_GetCurrentThreadId() Global $g__hHookDlgBox = _WinAPI_SetWindowsHookEx($WH_CBT, DllCallbackGetPtr($g__hProcDlgBox), 0, $g__TIdDlgBox) Global Const $g__MaxDlgBtns = 5 ; maximum of 5 buttons to rename text Global Const $g__MaxDlgItemId = 11 ; maximun ID of buttons to search is 11 as this is the maximun used in Messagebox Global $g__DlgBoxPosX, $g__DlgBoxPosY, $g__DlgBoxWidth, $g__DlgBoxHeight Global $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[$g__MaxDlgBtns] Global $g__DlgBtnCount = 0 _DlgBox_SetDefaults() OnAutoItExitRegister("__DlgBox_UnregisterHook") Func _DlgBox_SetButtonNames($TxtBtn1 = Default, $TxtBtn2 = Default, $TxtBtn3 = Default, $TxtBtn4 = Default, $TxtBtn5 = Default) $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[0] = $TxtBtn1 $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[1] = $TxtBtn2 $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[2] = $TxtBtn3 $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[3] = $TxtBtn4 $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[4] = $TxtBtn5 $g__DlgBtnCount = @NumParams EndFunc ;==>_DlgBox_SetButtonNames Func _DlgBox_SetPosition($x = Default, $y = Default) ;only for MsgBox, not working and not needed for InputBox $g__DlgBoxPosX = $x $g__DlgBoxPosY = $y EndFunc ;==>_DlgBox_SetPosition Func _DlgBox_SetSize($w = Default, $h = Default) $g__DlgBoxWidth = $w $g__DlgBoxHeight = $h EndFunc ;==>_DlgBox_SetSize Func _DlgBox_SetDefaults() $g__DlgBoxPosX = Default $g__DlgBoxPosY = Default $g__DlgBoxWidth = Default $g__DlgBoxHeight = Default For $i = 0 To UBound($g__aDlgBoxBtnText) - 1 $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[$i] = Default Next EndFunc ;==>_DlgBox_SetDefaults Func __DlgBox_CbtHookProc($nCode, $wParam, $lParam) Local $tcw, $tcs Local $iSearch = 0 Local $ahBtn[$g__DlgBtnCount] If $nCode < 0 Then Return _WinAPI_CallNextHookEx($g__hHookDlgBox, $nCode, $wParam, $lParam) EndIf Switch $nCode Case 3 ;5=HCBT_CREATEWND If _WinAPI_GetClassName(HWnd($wParam)) = "#32770" Then ;Dialoig window class $tcw = DllStructCreate($tagCBT_CREATEWND, $lParam) $tcs = DllStructCreate($tagCREATESTRUCT, DllStructGetData($tcw, "lpcs")) If $g__DlgBoxPosX <> Default Then DllStructSetData($tcs, "x", $g__DlgBoxPosX) If $g__DlgBoxPosY <> Default Then DllStructSetData($tcs, "y", $g__DlgBoxPosY) If $g__DlgBoxWidth <> Default Then DllStructSetData($tcs, "cx", $g__DlgBoxWidth) If $g__DlgBoxHeight <> Default Then DllStructSetData($tcs, "cy", $g__DlgBoxHeight) EndIf Case 5 ;5=HCBT_ACTIVATE For $i = 1 To $g__MaxDlgItemId If IsHWnd(_WinAPI_GetDlgItem($wParam, $i)) Then If $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[$iSearch] <> Default Then _WinAPI_SetDlgItemText($wParam, $i, $g__aDlgBoxBtnText[$iSearch]) $iSearch += 1 If $iSearch >= UBound($ahBtn) Then ExitLoop EndIf Next EndSwitch Return _WinAPI_CallNextHookEx($g__hHookDlgBox, $nCode, $wParam, $lParam) EndFunc ;==>__DlgBox_CbtHookProc Func __DlgBox_UnregisterHook() _WinAPI_UnhookWindowsHookEx($g__hHookDlgBox) DllCallbackFree($g__hProcDlgBox) EndFunc ;==>__DlgBox_UnregisterHook Func _WinAPI_SetDlgItemText($hDlg, $nIDDlgItem, $lpString) Local $aRet = DllCall('user32.dll', "int", "SetDlgItemText", _ "hwnd", $hDlg, _ "int", $nIDDlgItem, _ "str", $lpString) Return $aRet[0] EndFunc ;==>_WinAPI_SetDlgItemText  
      Simple example to see how to use it
      #include "HookDlgBox.au3" _DlgBox_SetButtonNames("1", "two", "3") MsgBox(4, "Test 1", "Custom button texts") _DlgBox_SetPosition(20, 20) MsgBox(66, "Test 2", "Custom position and button texts") _DlgBox_SetButtonNames("Submit", "Don't submit", "Don't know") InputBox("Test 3", "Where were you born?", "Planet Earth") _DlgBox_SetSize(800, 800) InputBox("Test 4", "Where were you born?", "Planet Earth") _DlgBox_SetSize(Default, 800) MsgBox(66, "Test 5", "Strange but working") _DlgBox_SetButtonNames(Default, "Wait", "What?") _DlgBox_SetSize(Default, Default) _DlgBox_SetPosition(500, 500) MsgBox(66, "Test 6", "So far so good!") _DlgBox_SetDefaults() MsgBox(6, "Test 7", "Default position and button texts") Hope you like it.

      Text translated from Portuguese by google - please apologize for any errors
      First I have to thank the development team for product quality and the ease with which it is possible to develop tools with AutoIt.
      I am developing a series of libraries to facilitate the creation of Forms that once it is stable and comprehensive I intend to share here for autoit
      But suddenly during development an unexpected effect appeared in simple inputbox fields.
      Everything is working fine, however if I'm in an inputbox, don't change its selected content and move focus to another field the selected text remains blue (selected) instead of returning to normal
      See the image....

      When pricing 3x TABs all remain blue
      However if I change the field , when leaving its focus it behaves normally
      See the ex below:

      1) I selected “tipo Default” and pressed TAB (to test what happens)
      2) typed "TESTE" and pressed TAB
      3) I pressed TAB 2x again and the "Centralizado" field turned blue
      Note: by default, when receiving focus, the text is always automatically selected
      Here are some parts of the code:
      Gui  create:
      ;modifique o tamanho inicial aqui ;$Form[$Form[0][0]][1] = 600 ;largura =800 ;$Form[$Form[0][0]][2] = 600 ;Atura =600 ;$Form[$Form[0][0]][3] = "RoboAutomato - "&$NomeProjeto $Form[$Form[0][0]][0] = GUICreate($Form[$Form[0][0]][3], _ $Form[$Form[0][0]][1], $Form[$Form[0][0]][2], _ Default, Default, _ BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP, $WS_POPUP)) GUISetFont($FormFonteTam, _ ;Tamanho da Fonte $FormFonteTipo, _ ;Tipo da Fonte $FormFonteEstilo, _ ;Estilo da Fonte $FormFonteNome) ; Nome da Fonte #Region Criando ToolTip $hGUIToolTip = _GUIToolTip_Create($Form[$Form[0][0]][0], BitOR($_TT_ghTTDefaultStyle, $TTS_BALLOON)) ; balloon style tooltip #EndRegion Criando ToolTip  inputs create:

      What should I change to get Inputbox's behavior back to normal????

      Hi AutoIters!
      Here is my new UDF about GUIs: it's an enhanced mixture of Advanced InputBox (deprecated) and KODA Parser (deprecated), with additional functions.
      What you can do with it:
      Parse KODA files and directly create GUIs (_GUIUtils_CreateFromKODA) Parse a simple JSON form definition to simply create advanced InputBoxes with any amount/type of input controls (_GUIUtils_CreateFromJSON) Created GUIs are returned as Scripting.Dictionary objects, and you have helper functions to access GUIs controls by their names (_GUIUtils_HWnd, _GUIUtils_CtrlID, _GUIUtils_HCtrl ...) A function that can make a GUI created from KODA/JSON (defined by it's $oForm object) and make it a modal InputDialogBox (just like InputBox, but returns all entered data as Scripting.Dictionary object) Functions are documented, and there are some examples.
      Consider this UDF as beta, but since I'm currently using it in a small commercial project, it should become production ready in near future.
      To always get the latest code version, get it from Github (more up to date than this topic).
      Update 04/02/2020:
      New simple application example Fixed focused control handling in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Reset input values before returning from _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed CloseOnEsc in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed Input not reset Fixed all ListBox items are selected Project now on GitHub https://github.com/matwachich/autoit-guiutils/
      Update 05/02/2020:
      Support for nodate for Date and Time input controls (pass null value) New handling of focused control _GUIUtils_InputDialog: Now, you can specify the focused control in $oInitialData by setting "controlName:focus" = True Updated documentation of _GUIUtils_InputDialog Update 07/02/2020:
      Bug corrected when setting Data input control Added: abillity to read a single input control New functions (_GUIUtils_GetInputs, _GUIUtils_WriteInputs), documentation completion. Readme file and screenshots on Github Page

      I am starting out using AutoIt. Here is a simple form with username and password. I want to check if information entered is valid once user clicks a button.
      My problem now is that it only validates once. E.g.: if I type 5 character username, it will complain it is not 7 character (good). But once I correct that mistake and press the button again it will still say the same thing.
      Do I need to have a loop?
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) $main = GUICreate("Test Tool", 600, 600) $hyourlabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("YOUR CREDENTIALS", 30, 10, 256) GUICtrlSetFont($hyourlabel, Default, 600) Local $adminfrejalabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Username:", 8, 38, 64, 17) Global $adminfrejaid = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 38, 110, 17) Local $adminpasswordlabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Password:", 8, 62, 64, 17) Global $adminpassword = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 62, 110, 17, BitOR($ES_PASSWORD, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL)) $userButton_Check = GUICtrlCreateButton("VALIDATE", 32, 480, 85, 25) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($userButton_Check, "startvalidation") GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "ExitGUI") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func startvalidation() ;CHECK VALIDATIONS $adminfrejaid = GUICtrlRead($adminfrejaid) $adminpassword = GUICtrlRead($adminpassword) If StringLen($adminfrejaid) <> '7' Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "User ID", "Please enter exactly 7 characters.") ;Exit EndIf If StringLen($adminpassword) < '5' Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Your Password", "Please enter a valid password.") ;Exit EndIf EndFunc Func ExitGui () Exit ; Exit the program EndFunc
