Using a GUIGetMsg() from a label

14 posts in this topic

Ok, the posted code works!!! When one clicks on the item. However, if one selects the U]nderlined character, it does NOT work...it selects the first combo-box, $cbox_Who, no matter which one you're trying to focus.

What have I done wrong?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4)
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=c:\documents and settings\u256655\desktop\autoit\user scripts\mailtomarshallcart\mail2marshallcart.kxf

I don't understand what is wrong.

You might think about using WM_COMMAND AND STN_CLICKED Event if all else fails.

No, the above code works if you click the label, however, the keyboard shortcut doesn't work.

You'll see from here that keyboard event isn't listed for static control

You could use _IsPressed I suppose, or better yet HotKeySet

Ick. HotKeySet is not an option I like to consider as it causes its own host of problems. If that was the only option, I'd sooner just take the simple route (read lazy) and remove the idea from the project.

hide button. now WS_TABSTOP need remove

Interesting idea. That will work.

Now...after tinkering with the code, how do I remove the $WS_TABSTOP style from the control? Koda won't let me uncheck, and I'm not sure how to remove it by hand. (Yes, I know it's a "forced" style)

EDIT: Control's $WS_TABSTOP is removed when GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_HIDE) is set. And so is the ability to use the ALT+key shortcut.

Produces the same result as the original code. ONLY the first tabstopped item (in this case, cboxWho) is selected.

I'm going to consider this dead and just remove the idea of this style of keyboard shortcuts from the project. Thank you all for the help.

edit; lef debug tooltip

Thank you, I'll try swaping the order it draws it then. My other solution was to turn the labels into flat buttons with the $BS_FLAT style ... but the border looked horrid, and I couldn't puzzle out how to change the colour of that.

And I think I discovered a bug in the GUI functions...

$button = GUICtrlCreateButton(x,y,w,h,BitOR($BS_FLAT,$BS_TOP))

GUICtrlSetBackground($button,0x808080)

The $BS_TOP winds up getting ignored and the text gets centered again...in fact, it appears to have all custom styling removed after setting the background colour.

*shrug* Anyway....could be just me.

Still getting odd behaviour from the button/label combinations with the same shortcut character defined with an "&". I suppose it's to be expected since I'm probably confusing the GUI. Either way, I suppose now, the only way to get what I want to display correctly is to create a bunch of lables and line them up *crosses eyes*

I'm lazy....

*scraps the idea again*
