7 posts in this topic

Hi,

i tried to locate some info in the forum but so far all code i tried failed.

Here is what i am trying to achieve

I have a text file with usernames

user1

user2

user3

etc.

I am trying to create a gui with checkboxes for each user and then save the checkoxed users to a

new text file.

Could someone shine some light on this one.

Thx in advance

To read the lines from a file and checkbox them try this

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GuiCreate( "Your checkbox script" )

GUISetState ()

$msg = 0

$read=FileReadLine( "yourfile.txt", 1)
$read1=FileReadLine( "yourfile.txt", 2)
$read2=FileReadLine( "yourfile.txt", 3)

$1=GUICtrlCreateCheckbox( $read, 5, 5)
$2=GUICtrlCreateCheckbox( $read1, 5, 30)
$3=GUICtrlCreateCheckbox( $read2, 5, 55)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

WEnd

To write to file use the comand FileWrite...but I can't help you more because i don't know how...hope that helped

You could look at using _FileReadToArray() and _FileWriteFromArray().

This example may help to give you some direction. I do not want to spoil your fun and do too much... :P

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Global $aArray
_FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & '\test.txt', $aArray)
If @error Then
    MsgBox(0x1, 'Error', "_FileReadToArray('test.txt', $aArray)")
    Exit
EndIf

GUICreate('Title')
Global $checkbox[$aArray[0]+1]
For $i = 1 To $aArray[0]
    $checkbox[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($aArray[$i], 10, 18 * $i)
Next
$button_process = GUICtrlCreateButton('&Process', 100, 350, 80)
$button_exit = GUICtrlCreateButton('E&xit', 200, 350, 80)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $msg = $button_exit
            Exit
        Case $msg = $button_process
            For $i = 1 To $aArray[0]
                ; Check state of checkboxes and do conditional action
                If GUICtrlRead($checkbox[$i]) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                    $state = 'checked'
                Else
                    $state = 'unchecked'
                EndIf
                MsgBox(0x40000, $aArray[$i], $state)
            Next
    EndSelect
WEnd

Put some names into a text file called test.txt to see the example run.

You can use ListView with checkboxes (style $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES),

see my project email_zak - in my signature ...

Thanks for the fast reply.

I got two issues with your script:

1)i have a list of hundred or so users and need to be able to browse the window.

I inserted the following in the script.I see the scroll button on the right side but i

am not able to go up or down?

GUICreate('Users to Move', 400, 500, -1, -1, $WS_VSCROLL)

2)I try to extract the checkboxed users to a text file with

_FileWriteToArray

but it gives me the following error

ERROR: _FileWriteToArray(): undefined function

Is there any other way to do this?

Thanks again for all your help

Very much appreciated

S.

For #2,

Make sure include at the top of your script (As done in MHz's example) File.au3

#Include <File.au3>
