Dynamic Menu Item

4 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

I am attempting to create a dynamic menu and I am not sure how to or if it is possible to increment the name of a variable to do so.

Ultimately I want to dynamically create the variable name to call it later in a case. for example it will read from an INI file then create FileMenuItem1, FileMenuItem2 variables etc....

For $a = 1 to 20
    $var = IniRead("test.ini", $a, "value","default")
    $type = IniRead("test.ini", $a, "type","default")
    if $type = "a" Then 
        $FileMenuItem($a) = GuiCtrlCreateMenuitem ($var,$FileMenu1)
    Else
        if $type <>"default" Then
        $FileMenuItem($a) = GuiCtrlCreateMenuitem ($var,$FileMenu2)
        EndIf
    EndIf
Next

GuiSetState()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        
        Case $msg = $FileMenuItem1
            msgbox(1,"test",$FileMenuItem1)
            
    EndSelect
WEnd

reading this topic i really tough it will fix my little issue here.

i have a trayitemmenu build from a array item list

1 of the item will be get the Tray_Check state set.

my issue is i cannot preset the size of the array like u do , i have no idea the number it will have before .

if i do $item = TrayCreateItem it will build every item i need , but later on i need to do a trayitemgettext

if i use the $item it always return the last value created , so instead i use @tray_id get my handle .

but i need to change the stat of the previous check item to uncheck it.

since i cannot use $item or $item[$i] to build the menu , so i just build it ,

but how do i extract the handle of the last check item in the menu list . i can build array of itemtext/itemhandle and search tru it , but i dont think it the best way to do it , im looking for to refresh the list same way i can reset data of a drop down menu in guictrl .

i pretty sure it me missing a little dump thing ,on how to reset a trayitemlist , or build random variable for my item.

so it look like this , for this menu :

#include <array.au3>

Global $Array[1]

#Include <Constants.au3>
#NoTrayIcon

Opt("TrayMenuMode",3); Default tray menu items (Script Paused/Exit) will not be shown.
Opt("TrayOnEventMode",1)

$settingsitem   = TrayCreateMenu("tool")

$displayitem    = TrayCreateItem("Network", $settingsitem,-1,-1)
;TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1,"net")

$printeritem  = TrayCreateMenu("Printer", $settingsitem ,-1)
printer()

$exititem       = TrayCreateItem("Exit",-1,1)
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1,"end")

TraySetState()

While 1
    $msg = TrayGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = 0
            ContinueLoop
        
        Case $msg = $exititem
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect
    sleep(10)
WEnd

Exit
 


func dprinter()

;$Dprinter = "HP LaserJet 4100 Series PS"
$Dprinter = TrayItemGetText(@TRAY_ID)
$Printdll = ("RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /y /n")
$SetDPcmd = ($Printdll & ' "' & $Dprinter & '"')
run($SetDPcmd)
;printer()                                                       ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;trying to reset printer item menu  
TrayitemSetState(@TRAY_ID,$TRAY_CHECKED)
EndFunc


func printer()
    
$objWMIService = objget("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")

$colSettings = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_printer")

$printerstring = ""

For $objOperatingSystem in $colSettings 
    
       $PcInfo = $objOperatingSystem.name 
       $tmpPreset = $objOperatingSystem.default
       _Arrayadd($Array,$pcinfo)
        if $tmpPreset = -1 then 
         $dfprinter = $pcinfo 
         EndIf
Next
 ;_ArrayDisplay($Array)
  for $i = 1 to UBound($Array) -1
      $printerstring = $array[$i]
      if $printerstring = $dfprinter then
        TrayCreateItem ($printerstring,$printeritem , -1,-1)
        TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1,"dprinter")
        TrayitemSetState(-1,$TRAY_CHECKED)
    Else
        TrayCreateItem ($printerstring,$printeritem , -1,-1)
        TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1,"dprinter")
        endif

     ;MsgBox(48,"s",$printerstrin)
  next
  
  
EndFunc

Func end()
      Exit
EndFunc



     ; $tmpPreset = $objOperatingSystem.default
        ;   if $tmpPreset = -1 then 
            ; MsgBox(48,"t",$tmpPreset)
            ; $printerlist = TrayCreateItem($pcinfo, $printeritem, -1,-1)
            
    ;        EndIf
      ;MsgBox(48,"PCinfo",$pcinfo)
     ; MsgBox(48, "PCinfo", $tmpPreset)
         ;  $printerlist = TrayCreateItem($pcinfo, $printeritem, -1,-1)
     ;TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1,"Dprinter")

Any idea what i should be looking for ?
