GuiOnEventMode vs. Check boxes

5 posts in this topic

Please pardon me if this has been asked, before. Any searches I can come up with bring back hundreds of hits.

In Event mode, I don't seem to get control when checking or unchecking a box.

Here's my program snipped down to its minimum. The msgbox never displays.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

opt('guiCloseOnEsc',0) ; don't close when hitting Esc

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode

$clock = GUICreate("Test",800,600,(@desktopwidth-800)/2, _

(@desktopheight-600)/3, $ws_sysmenu+$ws_caption+$ws_minimizebox)

$alarm = guictrlcreateCheckbox('Alarm' ,10,190,90,25)

GUISetOnEvent($alarm, "checkbox")

GUISetState ()

GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "cleanup")

while 1

sleep(1000)

wend

exit

func Cleanup()

guiDelete($clock)

exit

EndFunc

func CheckBox()

msgbox(0,'debug',checkbox)

endfunc

Please use Code tags when showing your scripts... $alarm is a Control... so you need GUICtrlSetOnEvent(). Also your msgbox(0,'debug',checkbox) is missing quotes around the checkbox string there.

Thanks very much for the quick response. I hadn't noticed that there were both GUISetOnEvent and GUICtrlSetOnEvent. Making that change worked.

(Sorry about the missing quotes in the msgbox; I cut a few hundred lines and many variables out to make a short test program.)

I'm afraid I had never come across the term "code tags". Based on a search (here and Google), do you just mean setting it apart with lines before and after such as:

CODE

;some code

ENDCODE

Put square brackets, i.e. [], around the word code at the begining, and /code at the end. The reply editor for this forum site has a button at the top with a # in it that will generate the tags automaticly. Just highlight the code and click the # button. To make it a scrolling code box, use the tags codebox and /codebox (in square brackets). You can also use the tags autoit and /autoit (still in the square brackets) and the web site code will try to color code it the way SciTE would.

yeh, just when you are displaying code on the forum enlcose it in these tags [ code ] this is my code here [ /code ] (without the spaces)

Just makes it a lot easier to read and makes the code stand out from the other text in your post.

Example:

this is my code here
;also some code
3rd line of code
