need help counting hotkey presses

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm writing a script that uses the second example of the GUICTRLCREATEPIC function from the help file. The script as it is is working great, its meant to test the position of a box displayed in a window. What i need however is a way to count the hotkey (left, right, up, down) presses. The point of doing this is i'm trying to find out how far right and how far down the $pic has to travel to be in the right position. Therefore:

Right should be X position +1

Left should be X position -1

Down should be Y position +1

Up should be Y position -1

I will set the ENTER key to display a message box with the final result of X and Y

unfortunately i can think of a function that will count the presses for me (think my brain is overloaded from the gui concepts i've picked up today) can anyone help. Here is a snippet from my script:

if stringinstr($cmdlineraw, "debug") then
$gui=GUICreate("test transparentpic", 96, 96, 0+$offsetx, 60+$offsety)
$pic=GUICreate("", 96, 96, $offsetx-1, 39+$offsety,BitOr($WS_POPUP,$SS_GRAYFRAME),BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED,$WS_EX_MDICHILD),$handle)
GUICtrlCreatePic("debugbox.gif",0,0,0,0)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$pic)
GUISetState(@SW_HIDE,$gui)

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "main")
HotKeySet("{LEFT}", "left")
HotKeySet("{RIGHT}", "right")
HotKeySet("{DOWN}", "down")
HotKeySet("{UP}", "up")
HotKeySet("{ENTER}","enter")
$picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
$guiPos = WinGetPos($gui)

do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
ENDIF

Func left ()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0]-1,$picPos[1])
EndFunc

Func right()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0]+1,$picPos[1])
EndFunc

Func down()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0],$picPos[1]+1)
EndFunc

Func up()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0],$picPos[1]-1)
EndFunc

this seemd incorrect

$gui=GUICreate("test transparentpic", 96, 96, 0+$offsetx, 60+$offsety)

$pic=GUICreate("", 96, 96, $offsetx-1, 39+$offsety,BitOr($WS_POPUP,$SS_GRAYFRAME),BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED,$WS_EX_MDICHILD),$handle)

should it be $gui ?????

at the top you could globalize two variables

Global $Left, $top

then in the functions you could

Func up()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
$Top = $Top -1
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0],$picPos[1]-1)
EndFunc

etc

Thank you that worked fine. And i want the $pic to work with $handle cause thats the program i need to find the location from. the script works fine as it stands.
