Opening Multiple Windows

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am trying to open multiple windows when I click on the list in a List View. Using the example in the Help file for GUICtrlCreateListView, I can select one click the value button and it creates the new window, but if I select the other and click the value button it waits until the other window is closed before it creates the new one.

I have searched the forum for multiple windows to no avail. I have been getting to know AutoIT over the past few weeks with some great success, but this one eludes me. Thanks for any and all help.

Here it is. It is a simplified version of the Help File example.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("listview items",220,250, 100,200,-1)

$listview = GUICtrlCreateListView ("Item",10,10,200,150)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Value?",75,170,70,20)
$item1=GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item1",$listview)
$item2=GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item2",$listview)
$item3=GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item3",$listview)

GUISetState()

Do
  $msg = GUIGetMsg ()
     
   Select
      Case $msg = $button
         MsgBox(0,"Selected Item",GUICtrlRead(GUICtrlRead($listview)))

   EndSelect
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Thanks for the quick reply, but it didn't create the windows. I understand what it did do, so thanks for teaching that point.

Allow me to clarify what I'm trying to do. In the original, when you select "Item 1" and click the "Value?" button, it would open a window stating Item 1 was selected, which is good. But I want that child window to remain open and select "Item 2" and click the "Value?" button in the parent window and open another child window, which would end up with two child windows open at the same time. Is this possible?

Thanks for taking the time to teach a stupid newbie!

HI,

something like :

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("listview items",220,250, 100,200,-1)

$listview = GUICtrlCreateListView ("Item",10,10,200,150)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Value?",75,170,70,20)
$item1=GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item1",$listview)
$item2=GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item2",$listview)
$item3=GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item3",$listview)
         GUICtrlCreateInput(GUICtrlRead(GUICtrlRead($listview)), 100,210, 80, 20)
GUISetState()

Do
  $msg = GUIGetMsg ()
   Select
    Case $msg = $button
         GUICreate(GUICtrlRead(GUICtrlRead($listview)), 200, 20, Random(10, Random(100, @DesktopHeight-100,1),1), Random(10, @DesktopHeight-100,1),-1,$WS_EX_MDICHILD,$gui)
         GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
   EndSelect
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

That's it!! Thanks so much for helping. I assume I can add to it to allow closing one of the child windows without closing all of them by following the example in the child.au3 sample.

Thanks again for the much needed help!
