Performing Actions At Gui Load?

6 posts in this topic

I've looked through the help files in autoit and I can't find out how to do things at GUI startup when the program starts, such as a traytip. Any ideas?

Thx, eMac

:) Well... what do you want to do? After making the functions / GUISetState() to show / While/WEnd to loop and do something within the loop. Don't know what traytip has to do with the GUI really, but maybe you'd care to elaborate a bit more.

P.S. - Oh ... Welcome to the forums.

Thanks for the welcoming :( Great program so far. Love it

Welp, I just wanna learn how I can do specific things RIGHT when the GUI

(program) is executed. Like, say right when the program loads, a balloon (TrayTip) appears and says

"Welcome to Program, to get started click on this. For help, you may press F1 to view the Help File."

TrayTip("Welcome", "Welcome to Program, to get started click on this. For help, you may press F1 to view the Help File.", 5, 1)

Hope this explains more :D

Thx again!

As smoke hinted at

if you just want a traytip or similar to show as the gui appears

just add the relevant command just after the:

GUISetState() ; which displays the GUI

I would suggest downloading the Beta of AutoIt and when wanting to use GUI functions, take a look at GUIBuilder and Koda, until then you can take a look at this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $TrayTip
HotKeySet('{F2}', "_TrayTipToggle")
$MainGUI = GUICreate('Just An Example', 200, 100)
$Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel('Hi, This is your GUI', 10, 150, 20)
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton('Exit', 35, 55, 65, 30)

_TrayTipToggle()

GUISetState()
    
While 1
    $GetInfoFromGUI = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $GetInfoFromGUI = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GetInfoFromGUI = $Button
            If MsgBox(52, 'Attention!', 'Are you sure you want to exit?') = 6 Then
                Exit
            EndIf
    EndSelect   
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func _TrayTipToggle()
    $TrayTip = Not $TrayTip
    While $TrayTip
        TrayTip("Welcome", "Welcome to Program, to get started click on this. For help, you may press F1 to view the Help File." & _
            @CR & 'Please Press F2 to get started!', 5, 1)
        Sleep(10)
    WEnd
    TrayTip('', '', 0, 0)
EndFunc
