My Gui to refesh data When it's not in focus (RESOLVED)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

what i am trying to do is have My Gui LIve update Out of focus, so i can have this on a 2nd monitor streaming live updates while i continue to work on other screen, 

i have been googling and looking at other threads about focus and stuff , but they do not seem to match what I'm after, 

to be clear - i am not wanting to put focus on the GUI for it to auto update values, 

 

if you have any positive feed back on the script while you read - i would be more then happy to accept - as im still building my Knowledge of this coding, 

and stream line is always better Garbage code writing, 

 

Kind regards 

Gngnut

Updated the Script content based on comments from others for better coding practice,

Your while Loop is not good at all.  It registers adlib functions and hotkeyset repeatedly which is useless.  Just put those statements once at the beginning of the script.  It is also a bad practice to put code between functions, it makes it hard to read and hard to debug.  Put all your main code together at the beginning of the script before all functions.

At first glance, beside the above comments, your code looks right, even if I didn't test it.  You do not seem to say that you have a particular problem...

HI Nine Ty for the comments, 

The problem i have and looking for a solution to is   Getting it to update - when its not in focus  as I'm working on other things on my pc, 

so if i'm writing emails, coding ect I would still like to see the GUI to update Per sec with out me having to click on it to update, 

Currently if i take focus The time will stop - and only change once i refocus the Gui again,

I see.  Declare your $Form1 as Global, and replace all controlSetText first parameter with $Form1, instead of "".  Should work...

If that doesn't work put top most extended style to your GUI.

      I use SetSoundDevice to control my audio devices but the UI was either
       
      blurry like this:
      or unusable like this:

      so I made this horrible thing to add scaling to the GUI:

      And now it looks good: 
      but it doesn't work on everything, for example the "GUICtrlCreateLabel("Output type: ", 30, 130, 65, 20) ;, $SS_RIGHT)" (from the autoit3wrapper gui)
      because the comment contains a parenthesis and it would break completely if there were variables as parameters..
      Is there some kind of parser around that I could use instead or maybe someone who has already done something like this?

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi, recently i created a GUI for some calculations in AutoIT.  The GUI has 2 tabs and on the first tab, it has few inputboxes where i use to click with mouse and start entering the inputs. i recently made some changes in the position of these textboxes. I made this by changing the autoit code file instead of making changes in KODA. Now i cannot click inside these textboxes with mouse. However, i can use TAB key to cycle through/enter input in these input boxes. what could have made the inputboxes not responding to mouseclicks. thanks

      Introduction
      ImGui is a popular library written by ocornut, it can make awesome user interface based on directx. It is being used by many big apps/games.  The UI is nice and flexible, easy to use because of frame-by-frame drawing. So I decided to convert the entire ImGui library to AutoIt
      At first it's just an experiment, i converted some basic draw functions of imgui, compile to a dll, then using DllCall in autoit to call the functions. I was testing to see how much FPS i can get in autoit, and i was expected a low FPS, since autoit is slow. Suprisingly, the FPS turned out to be so high, it works really fast, even when drawing 1000 buttons at the same time. Features
      More than +270 functions converted from ImGui (compiled dll). Has 90% of the capability of what you can do in C++; Usable ImGuiIO and ImGuiStyle, so you can set whatever configurations you like. Preview
          
      Usage
      #include <WinAPI.au3> #include "ImGui.au3" ; Create a window Local $hwnd = _ImGui_GUICreate("AutoIt ImGui", 1024, 768) _WinAPI_ShowWindow($hwnd) ; Set style color _ImGui_StyleColorsLight() ;~ _ImGui_StyleColorsDark() Local $f_value = 5 While 1 ; when the user click close button on the window, this will return false if Not _ImGui_PeekMsg() Then Exit ; must call _ImGui_BeginFrame() _ImGui_Begin("Another window") _ImGui_Text("Hello there..") If _ImGui_Button("click me") Then $f_value = 5 _ImGui_SliderFloat("slider", $f_value, 2, 20) If _ImGui_IsItemHovered() Then _ImGui_ToolTip("what r u doing?") _ImGui_End() ; must call _ImGui_EndFrame() Wend  
      Remark
      Most of the functions were converted automatically. I haven't tested all of them yet, if some function doesn't work for you, please tell me. Still missing some features of ImGui, please tell me if you needed any. Run \tools\imgui-au3-setup.au3 to add _ImGui functions to SciTE auto-complete. Source Code
