How to properly create a Back Next Finish form?


Go to solution Solved by Luke94,

Recommended Posts

 I have multiple forms, with next and back buttons. (Code below)

My first question would be to this form, how to disable the back button with GUICtrlSetState($Button_2,$GUI_DISABLE), in the first form?

My second question would, be If I am in the last page I need to change the button text to  GUICtrlSetData($Button_1,"FINISH")?

In essence, how to determine which page I am currently standing in my code below?

The last and final question would be that, the program allows the user to click to the Next button if all the inputs are not empty or something written in the input, how to solve this?

Thank you in advance your help :D

Very messy.. See below:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

Global $g_iIndex = 1 ; <--- This is the current tab index which will only be changed when we press the Next/Back buttons

Dim $show = 0, $Child_[4], $children = 3, $Radio[11]

$Main = GUICreate("MyGUI", (@DesktopWidth) / 4, (@DesktopHeight ) / 2, (@DesktopWidth) / 2, (@DesktopHeight ) / 2)

$ButtonPostion_Y = 490

$Button_Width = 80
$Button_Height = 25


$CancelButtonPostion_X = 335
$NextButtonPostion_X = $CancelButtonPostion_X - $Button_Width - 10
$BackButtonPostion_X =  $CancelButtonPostion_X-  $Button_Width - $Button_Width - 10




$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Next >", $NextButtonPostion_X, $ButtonPostion_Y, $Button_Width, $Button_Height)
$Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("< &Back",$BackButtonPostion_X,$ButtonPostion_Y ,$Button_Width, $Button_Height)
$Button_3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Cancel", $CancelButtonPostion_X, $ButtonPostion_Y, $Button_Width, $Button_Height)
$Label_2 = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("You're are currently viewing Child " & $g_iIndex, 300, 300, 290, 30) ; Added this so you can see what tab you're viewing
