GUISWITCH with second window

8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I try to create a programm to export colors from palettes. There are three problems.

First. A second window should disappear and should return to main window but without

success.

Second. If you have a second window, is it possible, to start this window several

times like at the beginning without the undertaken changes and without spripting

all these changes back?

Third. This is a generally problem and it concern the behavior of the buttons. The

reactions of them are very slow, if you click them. It work only reliable, if you

click the buttons at the moment, if the controltips appears.

I add an example script as .txt and colored .html file for showing my problems.

I don't want to waste too much words, but I would be thankful in advance for any help

and tipps.

Johannes from Germany

Hi,

Okay in German: Wenn Du im Skript ist genau die Stelle markiert, an der das 2.Fenster mit dem Titel Assistent wieder geschlossen und das Hauptfenster wieder aktiviert werden soll. GUISWITCH funktioniert, wenn ich weg vom Hauptfenster das zweite Fernster öffne. Aber ich kann den Weg nicht umgekehrt machen.

Also schliesse 2.Fenster öffne Hauptfenster.

Daneben stellte ich die Frage, ob ein zweiter Fenster auf den Stand der Iniatilisierung wieder zurückgedreht werden ohne daß man jede inzwischen erfolgte Veränderung herausskripten muss.

Schließlich fällt mir auf daß das Ansteuern der Schaltflächen sehr schwerfällig ist und das Anklicken einer Schaltfläche nur dann funktioniert, wenn das Quickinfo sichtbar ist. Das aber nur am Rande.

Größtes Problem ist wieder zurück zum Hauptfenster zu kommen. GUISWITCH sollte doch auch umgekehrt funktionieren. Herzlichst Johannes :">

So I will try once again. I highlight the problem in my script. It is possible me to switch from main window to secondary window with the title 'assistent'. After some work I want to close the secondary window and want retuirn back to the main window. First step works with the command GUISWITCH but not the way back (away from secondary window to main window) It must work although with GUISWITCH, doesn't it? This is the main question. Thanks in advance Johannes :">

I cannot understand German answer, but I warn you that GUISwitch as nothing to do with WinActivate.

I mean that thte GUISwith is only needed to change the default windows the GUI work with. Sometime you can see it is doing some activation but that's not the main intention of this function.

Please reread the doc. Thanks :D

The default action of GuiSetState() is @SW_SHOW, not to activate, so unless the GUI was hidden it makes no difference. Try:

;?????????????????????????? Q U E S T I O N ?????????????????????????????????????????
CASE $MSG[0]=$BTNCANCEL 
     MSGBOX(4096, "GUI EVENT", "YOU CLICKED ASSISTENTWINDOW BUTTON CANCEL",5)
     WinActivate("Your Main GUI Title")

:D

P.S. If you were doing this in a function that doesn't know the title of the GUI you could:

;?????????????????????????? Q U E S T I O N ?????????????????????????????????????????
CASE $MSG[0]=$BTNCANCEL 
     MSGBOX(4096, "GUI EVENT", "YOU CLICKED ASSISTENTWINDOW BUTTON CANCEL",5)
     Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
     WinActivate($MAINWINDOW)

:D

I'm not shure if you are talking about AutoIt windows, but if you are, this might be a solution?

    GUISetState($state)
