Execute the function only once


Recommended Posts

#Include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Sound.au3>

$mEndpoint_ABS = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Endpoint", $mABS)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "tab_ABS")
    
Func tab_ABS()
    Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
    Local $idTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(0, 10, 620, 355)    
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Plate Type")
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Shake")
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("More Settings")
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
EndFunc
How can I have the function executed only once so that I do not have to create a large number of different tabs every time I click on "Endpoint"?
( It's just an excerpt from the script)

Use static, then things are initialized only once:

#Include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Sound.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$mEndpoint_ABS = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Endpoint", $mABS)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "tab_ABS")
    
Func tab_ABS()
    Local Static $idTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(0, 10, 620, 355)    
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Plate Type")
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Shake")
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("More Settings")
            GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
EndFunc

@jchd That won't work because GUICtrlCreateTabItem must also be Static.

I would rather advise OP to create the tab once at the beginning of the script and not based on an event.  Hide the control if needed, and show it when required.

Ah! Sorry the indentation led me to think it was a one-liner but I didn't check for commas and continuation.

Note to self: don't quick-post answers while discussing completely unrelated tech matters over the phone at the same time!

EDIT: JD = jchd + 9 I don't get it

Sorry guys, I'm still a beginner and don't know how to implement the suggestions. "Static" did not work, but I was able to call the function several times and again had the problem of creating an infinite number of tabs.

Read what was posted, you need static for every declaration you want to be one-shot:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Sound.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Local $mEndpoint_ABS = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Endpoint", $mABS)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "tab_ABS")

Func tab_ABS()
    Local Static $idTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(0, 10, 620, 355)
    Local Static $idT1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Plate Type")
    Local Static $idT2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Shake")
    Local Static $idT3 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("More Settings")
    Local Static $idT4 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
EndFunc

Note that local variables are only visible from inside the function where they are declared. Static means: "initialize me only once"

Yes @jchd i read this commend :)

That it should only be visible once works wonderfully, but I don't want the tabs to disappear again after milliseconds and my entire program to abort ...

I think in that case would be better concept to use temporary opened new (child) window to allow user to input some options (visually in GUI).

This window will have controls corresponding to menu item from which it has been opened (corresponds to one TabItem here) and buttons OK/Cancel.

So you will not mix dynamic "Options" controls in main GUI and it will be in other new GUI window.
