GUI Designer: Koda 1.7.3.0


Recommended Posts

I tried with Koda but i must say i am giving up, this is becoming pain.

The main issue is that whenever you make something in Koda it runs at problems when you mix it with something that isnt directly being able to made in it and you are forced to do that part in autoit directly. So what you do is make half stuff in autoit code directly and half stuff in Koda and then you realize that mixing is just complete pain in the ass.

I really appreciate the effort of Lazycat but this problem makes me even think about quitting autoit

@Aktonius, my experience is at the moment is completely opposite; as long as I very accurately specify all the names/handles..etc. that I want in Koda and then proceed to copy ONLY the Region material into my scripts it works brilliantly (granted I've had to work around a few quirks but hey; this is programming.. try any other language/system and you're likely to run into a new set of technical headaches, the objective is to work around/with them without acquiring a headache oneself!).

Hi all,

I am trying to import an .au3 form script into Koda that uses a variable as one of the parameters in the GuiCtrlCreateCombo control but after importing i notice that the $current variable has been removed from the script.

Here is a sample that illustrates the $current variable being used on line 6 to retrieve the current value from a settings.ini file and on line 7 to specify the current parameter value.

#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=Form1.kxf
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 623, 449, 192, 114)
$current = IniRead("settings.ini","settings","$teacher","")
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo($current, 160, 152, 185, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "bob|sue|mary")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Is there a different way that I should be coding this so that I can use the $current variable? If it is preferable for me to post this as a new topic please let me know and I will do so.

Thank you

Koda keeps track only for GUI related code, so it ignores line with IniRead().

You must place line with IniRead outside (above) of KODA GUI section code.

In Koda designer:

- switch ON Options/Code Generator/Expand %var% variables

- ComboBox's Text property set to value: %current%

Now Koda will generate GUICtrlCreateCombo($current, ...

Hi,

I was going to post a bug in your Koda Bugtracker but stupid me realised that it doesn't take m credentials from here eusa_wall.gif god I am retarded sometimes, it's any wonder I can even make anything in AutoIT haha.

Anyway, a bug I have noticed with Koda is that it doesn't accept Rebar for anything GUI? It just doesn't display. Even if I have imported a script that is essentially a GUI only with no other code the Rebar section doesn't display inside of Koda? If I add to the GUI I have to "build around" a hypothetical placement of the Rebar and then add it in later when I am about to test my scripts.

For now a work around for me is to place a dummy space in the GUI the same size dimensions of the rebar and then remove it after the GUI code is produce by Koda for insertion into my scripts.

I tried to go to the wiki listed in the OP, but it goes to an article about getting pregnant. I know I am new to AutoIt, <sarcasm> but I just don't see how that is helpful information for Koda. </sarcasm>   :-)

Since no new updates have happened for three years, the wiki points to getting pregnant, I'm assuming this project is dead?

 

...So what you do is make half stuff in autoit code directly and half stuff in Koda...

 

When I tried using Koda, I had to do what Aktonius did.  It does work and gives a good starting point, then you just have to do some 'manual' tweeking in the code in SciTE to get what you want.

tk1,

There are alternatives - a simple search would have found this or this. ;)

Hi Melba23,

I currently have 8 browser tabs open with different AutoIt stuff and searches, but I didn't even think to search for this type of thing!  I figured Koda was pinned so it was the preferred tool. 

Would it be a good idea to pin these two also?

Thank you for finding these and sharing the links!

tk1,

Glad I could help you with an alternative GUI designer - personally I do it all from scratch. ;)

Koda is pinned because it is included in the standard AutoIt install. If another tool reaches a suitable level of development then maybe it will replace Koda - but certainly not in the next release. :)

Koda is part of the SciTE4AutoIt3 installer, not the AutoIt3 installer. ;)

I am always open for suggestions for replacement, but there has to be a good reason and need to do so.

Do you guys think it will be either of the links you posted Melba?

I love the idea of an IDE/Form builder, but I also love the simplicity/portability of the SciTE Editor. 

I want to see a new version of Koda.  

Also, Melba, I dont understand.. why would you write by hand GUI forms when something like this exists already? What are the advantages?

;Frank.

A couple of requests:
1. Can you add the $GUI_DROPACCEPTED property to controls?
2. Can you add ondropped (based on $GUI_EVENT_DROPPED) event to the Object Inspector for forms (same as the existing OnClose event)?
3. Can you add an onclick event for menu items?

I'm a big fan of Koda. I like using the %var% for the Text properties of ComboBox and Input controls.

I tried using a %leftpos% variable to specify the Left property of a control so that it could be dynamically located but received an error message.

Is there a way to use a variable with the Left, Top, Width or Height properties to specify the position?

Thank you

It would help if you post your code, but have you looked into ControlGetPos in the help file?

Hi JLogan,

%var% works great for specifying string values for control properties such as a Text property.

If I use %var% with a property that is expecting a numerical value, such as the Left property of a control, it will error that it is not a valid integer value.

Is there another syntax other than %var% for representing numerical values as a variable within Koda?

Thank you

Once again, it would be much easier to assist if you post your code. Help us help you ;)
