Gui [in layman's terms] is a face for your script. Something with buttons and checkboxes, etc. that the user can "interface" with.


Who else would I be?

Tst! Let me teach you how to fish the right way! lol... in google... type:

define:gui

and you should get something like this link below.

define:gui

Anyways... gui is like the matrix... In a windows world... we really don't know what it is to be without gui... Windows is a gui... the opposite of gui would probably be a command prompt... That is the real way computers run... through commands... not through some fancy dancy windows and boxes... so there you have it! Leave the matrix if you want to truly understand gui...

Thus reminding me that not everyone has used computers since before GUI's... I'd say "it makes me feel old" but I guess really, I have always had a GUI of some sort, even if it was just a command prompt... I never got to try punch cards...

BS_TOP 0x0400 Places text at the top of the button rectangle.

Combo box styles Value Description

default CBS_DROPDOWN | CBS_AUTOHSCROLL | WS_VSCROLL

forced WS_TABSTOP

CBS_AUTOHSCROLL 0x0040 Automatically scrolls the text in an edit control to the right when the user types a character at the end of the line. If this style is not set, only text that fits within the rectangular boundary is enabled.

CBS_DISABLENOSCROLL 0x0800 Shows a disabled vertical scroll bar in the list box when the box does not contain enough items to scroll. Without this style, the scroll bar is hidden when the list box does not contain enough items.

CBS_DROPDOWN 0x0002 Displays only the edit control by default. The user can display the list box by selecting an icon next to the edit control.

CBS_DROPDOWNLIST 0x0003 Displays a static text field that displays the current selection in the list box.

CBS_LOWERCASE 0x4000 Converts to lowercase any uppercase characters that are typed into the edit control of a combo box.

CBS_NOINTEGRALHEIGHT 0x0400 Specifies that the combo box will be exactly the size specified by the application when it created the combo box. Usually, Windows CE sizes a combo box so that it does not display partial items.

CBS_OEMCONVERT 0x0080 Converts text typed in the combo box edit control from the Windows CE character set to the OEM character set and then back to the Windows CE set. This style is most useful for combo boxes that contain file names. It applies only to combo boxes created with the CBS_DROPDOWN style.

CBS_SIMPLE 0x0001 Displays the list box at all times. The current selection in the list box is displayed in the edit control.

CBS_SORT 0x0100 Sorts strings that are typed into the list box.

CBS_UPPERCASE 0x2000 Converts to uppercase any lowercase characters that are typed into the edit control of a combo box.

List box styles Value Description

default LBS_STANDARD | WS_VSCROLL

forced WS_TABSTOP

LBS_DISABLENOSCROLL 0x1000 Shows a disabled vertical scroll bar for the list box when the box does not contain enough items to scroll. If you do not specify this style, the scroll bar is hidden when the list box does not contain enough items.

LBS_NOINTEGRALHEIGHT 0x0100 Specifies that the list box will be exactly the size specified by the application when it created the list box.

LBS_NOSEL 0x4000 Specifies that the user can view list box strings but cannot select them.

LBS_SORT 0x0002 Sorts strings in the list box alphabetically.

LBS_STANDARD 0xA00003 Sorts strings in the list box alphabetically. The parent window receives an input message when the user taps or double-taps a string. The list box has borders on all sides.

LBS_USETABSTOPS 0x0080 Enables a list box to recognize and expand tab characters when drawing its strings. The default tab positions are 32 dialog box units. A dialog box unit is equal to one-fourth of the current dialog box base-width unit.

Edit styles Value Description

default ES_WANTRETURN | WS_VSCROLL | WS_HSCROLL | ES_AUTOVSCROLL | ES_AUTOHSCROLL

ES_CENTER 0x0001 Centers text in a multiline edit control.

ES_LOWERCASE 0x0010 Converts all characters to lowercase as they are typed into the edit control.

ES_NOHIDESEL 0x0100 Negates the default behavior for an edit control. The default behavior hides the selection when the control loses the input focus and inverts the selection when the control receives the input focus. If you specify ES_NOHIDESEL, the selected text is inverted, even if the control does not have the focus.

ES_NUMBER 0x2000 Accepts into the edit control only digits to be typed.

ES_OEMCONVERT 0x0400 This style is most useful for edit controls that contain file names.

ES_MULTILINE 0x0004 Designates a multiline edit control. The default is a single-line edit control.

ES_PASSWORD 0x0020 Displays an asterisk (*) for each character that is typed into the edit control.

ES_RIGHT 0x0002 Right-aligns text in a multiline edit control.

ES_UPPERCASE 0x0008 Converts all characters to uppercase as they are typed into the edit control.

ES_WANTRETURN 0x1000 Specifies that a carriage return be inserted when the user presses the ENTER key while typing text into a multiline edit control in a dialog box. If you do not specify this style, pressing the ENTER key has the same effect as pressing the dialog boxs default push button. This style has no effect on a single-line edit control.

Progress bar styles Value Description

PBS_SMOOTH 0x01 Displays progress status in a smooth scrolling bar instead of the default segmented bar.

PBS_VERTICAL 0x04 Displays progress status vertically, from bottom to top.

Up-down styles Value Description

default UDS_ALIGNRIGHT

SS_SUNKEN 0x1000 Draws a half-sunken border around a static control.

SS_WHITEFRAME 0x09 Specifies a box with a frame drawn with the same color as the window background. This color is white in the default color scheme.

DTS_RIGHTALIGN 0x20 The drop-down month calendar will be right-aligned with the control instead of left-aligned, which is the default.

how do i make it? lol

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

First thing is don't look at the post after your last one. I think you will have ran screaming. Secondly, look through the posts in the gui section. Third test it out. Here is a basic script.

GuiCreate('Title',200,300)
GuiSetControl('Label','Here is an input box',10,10,120,20)
GuiSetControl('Input','',10,25,120,20)
GuiShow
WinWaitClose('Title')
Exit

This script will only close by right clicking on the icon in the taskbar and choosing exit.

Really this will take care of it so you can see the control. Look through the help file for the other controls(comboboxes, listboxes, buttons, checkboxes, radioboxes, etc.)

The best thing to do is play with it, then search for questions in the forum and if you can't find the answer then feel free to ask questions.
