Just Started Trying To Learn Variables. Need Some Help

8 posts in this topic

I'm just trying to make an easy script, but I don't know how to do it. I made a simple GUI that I'll post the code up for. I want to make it like if I typed in 56 in the input box or something like that, that it will pop up with a msg box saying "that number is higher than 10" and if I would type in 6 it would say "that number is lower then 10". They having something like this is the helpfile, but that one you can't type in your own number. I want to learn how to do this so I can have input boxes in my GUI and if I'd type "notepad" that it would open notepad. Just to get me started with that.

#include <GuiConstants.au3>


GuiCreate("MyGUI", 188, 55,-1, -1 , BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))

$Input_1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("Put a number in here", 10, 10, 80, 30)
$Button_2 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("ok", 110, 10, 70, 30)



GuiSetState()
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    Case Else
    ;;;
    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit
#endregion --- GuiBuilder generated code End ---

    Case $msg = $button_2
    $var = Number(GuiCtrlRead($input_1))
if $var < 10 then
msgbox(0,'',"That's less than 10")
ElseIf $var = 10 then
MsgBox(0,'',"That's 10")
else
MsgBox(0,'',"That's more than 10")
endif
    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit

or something like that

[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

Depending on preference, you could also use GUIOnEventMode.

Using this mode was much easier for me to learn AutoIt because it gives you complete control of what could be a complex GUI without having to run through a long list of messages. You can specify exact functions to handle events instead of running through a Select statement and processing them all on the fly.

Here is the script you're trying to write, but using GUI Event mode instead:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode",1)

; Create the GUI
GuiCreate("MyGUI", 240, 65)

; Set event for when the GUI is closed to call the function "closeGUI()"
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE,"closeGUI")

; Create a label for the Input box
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a number to analyze:", 10, 10)

; Create the Input box
; Make the variable "$Input_1" Global so it's value can be accessed from inside the function that handles the "click" event on the Button
Global $Input_1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 145, 7, 80)

; Create the button
$Button_2 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Analyze", 90, 35, 60, 21)

; Set event for when the button is clicked to call the function "buttonclick"
GuiCtrlSetOnEvent($Button_2, "buttonclick")

; Draw the GUI
GuiSetState()

While 1
    Sleep(1000) ; Idle and do nothing - this keeps the GUI alive
WEnd

Func closeGUI()
; This function is called when the X is clicked to close the GUI
; The "GUISetOnEvent" function on line 9 assigns this function to handle the close event
    Exit
EndFunc;closeGUI()

Func buttonclick()
; This function is called when "$Button_2" is clicked
; The "GUICtrlSetOnEvent" function on line 22 assigns this function to handle the button's click event
    
; Read the value of the input box "$Input_1" and assign it to a variable:
    Dim $input_1_value = GUICtrlRead($Input_1)
    
; Now analyze the value to determine if it's equal to, higher, or lower than 10:

; Display the value entered in the text box:
    MsgBox(0,"Entered Value","The value entered is " & $input_1_value )
        
    If $input_1_value > 10 Then
        MsgBox(0,"Result","The value is greater than 10")
    ElseIf $input_1_value < 10 Then
        MsgBox(0,"Result","The value is less than 10")
    ElseIf $input_1_value = 10 Then
        MsgBox(0,"Result","The value is equal to 10")
    EndIf   
EndFunc;buttonclick()

Hope this helps :)

Where's GuiOnEventMode? I think I've seen it somewhere, but I can't find it.

look in help for the 3 letters - opt - you will find it in the listing

I hate to add to all this but I have found it very hard to use the GUIOnEventMode without using global variables - is it possible for you to show the code above with 3 buttons all calling the same function and from there they call another function - with using variables and arrays for the buttons. I can show you some code that I have posted - and now that I have learned a little more about what you can do - I find myself wanting to do things to speed things up and to not write as much code.

create 3 buttons

button[1]

button[2]

button[3]

call dummy()

if button[1] then do something (create another gui) with needed information from the MAIN gui - f1()

if button[2] then do something (create another gui) with needed information from the MAIN gui - f2()

if button[3] then do something (create another gui) with needed information from the MAIN gui - f2()

Does any of this make sense?

It doesn't make sense to me, but I don't think it was directed at me. I've tried using all your scripts as guides to make one by myself, but I'm having difficulty with that. I'm trying to figure out how to do it with names now and I'm having no luck. I think maybe this is to advanced for me yet. Is it really very hard for you? I don't know what to do cause I got the really easy basics down and have no idea what to do so I thought maybe variables. And I have learned I just can't understand it.

I understand it and am able to do it with Global Variables - I am trying to get out of using the Global as it takes up more memory, at least in most languages it does. If anyone is reading this - how do you work with OnEvent with out Global Varables - or am I going down the wrong path and will need to use them if I do OnEvent. Like I said I have a lot of code that I want to change - before writing it all. I do not want to have to rewrite the code later because now I know how to do it. I would like to know the right way to do it and then write my code that way. Practice makes perfect and perfect practice is the way I want to go.
