Get Data From Input And Calculate When Button Pressed

4 posts in this topic

Hi

Just downloaded the program and looks really good - nice to create boxes, buttons, labels etc on GUI Windows

However - I am new to all this windows GUI stuff as I used to program in Standard BASIC with line numbers etc

Can someone give me a clue as to the code

All I want to do is get started with the code you need to enter some number in a text box, and then when you click the button, the result is displayed in another text box

I produced a GUI looking like this

-------------------------

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Simple Calculator", 300, 150)

GUICtrlCreateInput( "Enter", 25, 25, 50, 20)

GUICtrlCreateButton( "Calculate", 100, 25, 75, 20)

GUICtrlCreateInput( "= Answer", 200, 25, 50, 20)

GUISetState (@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed

While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

Wend

-------------------------------

But - obviously this doesnt actually DO anything

Anyone give me a clue as to how to make the button take the input from first box - say times it by 5, and put answer in 2nd box

Would be grateful - thanks

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Simple Calculator", 300, 150) 
$inp1 = GUICtrlCreateInput( "Enter", 25, 25, 50, 20)
$but1 = GUICtrlCreateButton( "Calculate", 100, 25, 75, 20)
$inp2 = GUICtrlCreateInput( "= Answer", 200, 25, 50, 20)
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW); will display an empty dialog box

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $but1 Then GUICtrlSetData($inp2, GUICtrlRead($inp1)^5)
Wend

You will find codes scattered around in the "General Help and Support" forum. You just have to search for them, but it won't be that easy.
