GuiUtils: Simply create GUIs from KODA, Input Dialogs from JSON, and handle them like InputBox with one function

Recommended Posts

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

...by popular demand: GUICtrlSetOnEvent()  :thumbsup:

Edit: 
1) Json_Encode($g_oData, $JSON_PRETTY_PRINT) looks better than the magic 128
2) how did you use <WMDebug.au3> ?, I'm curious.

Thanks for sharing this :)

GUICtrlSetOnEvent(_GUIUtils_CtrlID($oForm, "ctrlName"), yourFunction)

1) you are right :)

2) I used it to debug the onChange function (window subclass), just comment it (it is not needed for the UDF)

      good morning
      this is the first post here in the autoit forums
      i hope that you can help me in my problem
      i have a JSON encoded
      it a map of my forums
      where i want to make a treeview that have the same type of map
      e.g
      a system (as category)
      windows (as sub category)
      software (as an child item in the windows category)
      .....
      i don't know how to do that
      so, i know that i can do that using the json functions
      but i need your help about how we can do it as the type that i told you
      by the way i need to put the sub info for each item in an array that give me the ability to manage my items
      e.g
      can post thread
      can reply
      message cound ...
      you just give me a small example and i can continue.
      am sorry if this against the rules of the forum.
      but i realy searched a lot but i couldn't
      i hope some one give me the way.
      thank you very much in advance

      I was looking for a way to embed Windows Media Player into Autoit. I found 2 Windows Media Player UDF's but both of them seem to have used the OCX directly. The problem with using the OCX directly is that the video display size cannot be changed, and it takes the size of the video inherently.
      @seangriffin created the VLC GUI based on embedding the IE object into the GUI and that seems to work perfectly with Windows Media Player as well and it does not give the resize problem.
      I built the WMP.au3 around this concept and would like to share it with everybody.
      Attached is the WMP.au3 and the WMP_Example.au3 where it is used.

      Feedback is appreciated. This is my first UDF, so please be kind.
