Menuitem Checkbox

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a wayto set a menu item to have a checkmark in front of it when you click it and have that check mark come off when you click on it again.

any ideas?

This capability is demonstrated in the v3.2.0.0 helpfile under GUICtrlCreateMenuitem(). Look at the item under "View".

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI menu",300,200)

Global $defaultstatus = "Ready"
Global $status

$filemenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("&File")
$fileitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Open",$filemenu)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DEFBUTTON)
$helpmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("?")
$saveitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Save",$filemenu)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)
$infoitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Info",$helpmenu)
$exititem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Exit",$filemenu)
$recentfilesmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("Recent Files",$filemenu,1)

$separator1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("",$filemenu,2)    ; create a separator line

$viewmenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("View",-1,1)  ; is created before "?" menu
$viewstatusitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Statusbar",$viewmenu)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_CHECKED)
$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("OK",50,130,70,20)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)
$cancelbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Cancel",180,130,70,20)

$statuslabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel ($defaultstatus,0,165,300,16,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))

GUISetState ()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $fileitem Then
        $file = FileOpenDialog("Choose file...",@TempDir,"All (*.*)")
        If @error <> 1 Then GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ($file,$recentfilesmenu)
    EndIf 
    If $msg = $viewstatusitem Then
        If BitAnd(GUICtrlRead($viewstatusitem),$GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
            GUICtrlSetState($viewstatusitem,$GUI_UNCHECKED)
            GUICtrlSetState($statuslabel,$GUI_HIDE)
        Else
            GUICtrlSetState($viewstatusitem,$GUI_CHECKED)
            GUICtrlSetState($statuslabel,$GUI_SHOW)
        EndIf
    EndIf
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $cancelbutton Or $msg = $exititem Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $infoitem Then Msgbox(0,"Info","Only a test...")
WEnd
GUIDelete()

Exit
