Hi all,

The more projects I work on, the harder it is to find old scripts I created with certain techniques in them. I'd like to leave this here for others to get an idea from and it will be available now by keyword searching in this forum.

This project needed an evenly distributed button grid setup on a touch screen with half decent sized buttons and spacing so the user would be less likely to press the key beside it. Here is one quick example to give anyone an idea of a way to handle it.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Button Grid", 1080, 100)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)       ; will display an empty dialog box

;--Create and Position Controls
Dim $btnActivated[1][2]  ;Col 1 is button id, Col 2 is True/False used in 1 example as depressed
Dim $btnArray[100][2]  ;Col 1 is button id, Col 2 is True/False used in 1 example as depressed
$num = 0
$btnActivated[0][0] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Activated", 0, 0, 100, 100) ;x,y,w,h
$btnActivated[0][1] = True
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x00ff00)
    GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0x005500)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1,14)
For $Y = 0 To 1
    For $X = 0 To 7
        ConsoleWrite(  ($X * 100) + ($X*20) + 120   & @CRLF)
        If $Y=0 Then
            $btnArray[$num][0] = GUICtrlCreateButton($num + 1, ($X * 100) + ($X*20) + 120, 0, 100, 40) ;x,y,w,h
        Else
            $btnArray[$num][0] = GUICtrlCreateButton($num + 1, ($X * 100) + ($X*20) + 120, ($Y * 40) + $Y*20, 100, 40) ;x,y,w,h
        EndIf
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($btnArray[$num][0], 0xFFFFFF)
        $num += 1
    Next
Next

;--Set Button Names
GUICtrlSetData($btnArray[0][0],"Autoit")
GUICtrlSetData($btnArray[1][0],"Is")
GUICtrlSetData($btnArray[2][0],"Cool")

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $btnActivated[0][0]
            $btnActivated[0][1] = NOT $btnActivated[0][1]
            If $btnActivated[0][1] Then
                GUICtrlSetBkColor($btnActivated[0][0],0x00ff00)
                GUICtrlSetColor($btnActivated[0][0],0x005500)
                GUICtrlSetData($btnActivated[0][0],"Activated")
                GUICtrlSetFont($btnActivated[0][0],14)
            Else
                GUICtrlSetBkColor($btnActivated[0][0],0xFF9999)
                GUICtrlSetColor($btnActivated[0][0],0x550000)
                GUICtrlSetData($btnActivated[0][0],"DeActivated")
                GUICtrlSetFont($btnActivated[0][0],13)
            EndIf
        Case $btnArray[0][0]
            If $btnActivated[0][1] Then
                MsgBox(0,"Notice","Btn1",1)
            EndIf
        Case $btnArray[1][0]
            If $btnActivated[0][1] Then
                MsgBox(0,"Notice","Btn2",1)
            EndIf
        Case $btnArray[2][0]
            If $btnActivated[0][1] Then
                MsgBox(0,"Notice","Btn3",1)
            EndIf

    EndSwitch
WEnd

I couldn't find one of my old projects that broke the button array into more columns that included the actual button name in the field. Feel free to share your own or share a more flexible version of this simple example.

      ūüĎč Hey
      I want to call a function when something changes on an element in my GUI. That should work for a combo box (with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST) when I select an item and for a text input when I type.
    • By It_is_me_Me
      I am making some GUI with combobox for the Baudrates communications and I listed 9600, 57600, 115200. 
      I wrote the code to be defaulted to 57600 like this:
      GUICtrlSetData($comboBox_opticalBaudRate, "9600|57600|115200", "57600")
      But I wanted the GUI to remember the last item the user picks so the baudrates will NOT be defaulted to 57600.
      Example, I pick 9600 as my baudrates, then I close the GUI, after opening it, it always prompt 57600 since that is what I did in my code. But I want that if I choose 9600 and close the GUI, opening it again will show 9600 now instead of 57600.
      Is there a way to do it in GUI setting?
       
      Thanks.

      Hi,
      I am having a problem properly saving the Width of a resizable Gui.
      When a user resizes the Gui it gets saved in an ini when the Gui closes to then restore the new Width upon reopening the app.
      with GUICreate("myGui",300,200,Default,Default,$WS_SIZEBOX)
      WinGetPos($hGUI) returns 314, and WinGetClientSize($hGUI) returns 298
      when its then saved in the ini the gui keeps expanding or shrinking every time its opened by +14 or -2
      I figure it has to do with borders etc, but i also guess borders depend on the window theme and whatnot or is user specific, so i can't just do $GuiWidth = $GetGuiWidth[arr] -14 or +2 right?

      is there a proper way of doing this?
      Thanks in advance,

      I have provided a portion of my script (seen below) and I wanted to use what the USER will input into my IP address box and input box for TCP port. I set the IP address to use 0.0.0.0 as default and the Port to 502. But I want to let the user change it and when they click the buttons (IP Address and Port), the tooltip will show what the USER entered. How can I use the details that the User will input into my input box and IP address box and let them see what they entered when they click the buttons?
       
      Here are the scripts:
      ;-------------------------------------------------------------
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3>

      Global $TAB = GUICtrlCreateTab(0, 0, 489, 337)
      Global $tab_main = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Main")

      Global $btn_Port = GUICtrlCreateButton("Port", 404, 297, 75, 25)
      ;Showing the GUI
      GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
      While 1
         $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
