How to code Progress Bar and UpDown objects


Recommended Posts

I've traditionally used the default AutoIT progress functions as part of my installer scripts and am considering using the new GUI functionality. I used AutoBuilder 0.4 to construct the shell code at the bottom. What I need is the additional code to populate the position in the progress bar and the text in the updown list with the following stages:

0% - Installer Started

25% - Extracted Files

50% - Installation Completed

75% - Configuration Completed

100% - Installer Completed

Can someone help me fill in the blanks please?


Shell Code below->>>>>>>>

;Script generated by AutoBuilder 0.4

Opt("GUICoordMode", 1)

Opt("GUINotifyMode", 1)

GuiCreate("MyGUI", 331,144,(@DesktopHeight-331)/2, (@DesktopHeight-144)/2 , 0x04CF0000)

$progress_1 = GUISetControl("progress", "Progress 1", 20, 30, 290, 30)

$updown_1 = GUISetControl("updown", "Updown 1", 20, 80, 290, 60)


While 1


$msg = GuiMsg(0)


Case $msg = -3


Case $msg = 0


Case $msg = $progress_1


Case $msg = $updown_1

The progressbar-percent you can set either with:

GUISetControlEx($progress_1,50); where 50 means 50%



Therefore, can I use GUISetControlEx or GUIWrite to write a line of text such as 0% - Installer Started to the $updown_1 as well?

Here is an old sample of UPDOWN-controls:

$title = "My Guy UpDown"

$input = GUISetControl("input","2",10,10)
$updown = GUISetControl("updown",$input,0,0)
GuiSetControlEx(-1,0,0,"",2,10); means only 'scrollable from 2 to 10


So you could use UPDown-controls only together with Input-controls!

The values for the updown-limit are not written in the help-file, but I've looked into an old testfile from jpm :D
