save and load the gui data

4 posts in this topic

Hi!

i use a gui with 300 items, where i made an array for each item to hold the kind of it, like

0=text

1=checkbox

2=input

3=combo, etc

so the array looks like 1,2,1,0,3,1,1,1,3,3,2

when i save the guidata to a file, i just dump the guidata into lines of a text file

when i load it, i check the appropriate item from the array to see what to do with the written data, cause a "4" can be a text item or even a state sign for a checkbox

this works well, but it makes hard to add items to the gui

question: can i get the gui kind just by the gui item's serial number?

thanks in advance!

WIth a GUI, you can use the control's ID to do what you need. Also, you may want to use a ini file to keep stuff strait.

I think U get me wrong, its becouse my poor english :)

these are my save/load functions:

Func Save()
    $FileName = FileSaveDialog("Save settings...", "", "(*.ini)", 2)
    $WriteThis = FileOpen($FileName & ".ini", 2)
    sleep(100)
    For $a = 5 to $SSB + 9;$SSB is the counter for all GUI controls
        FileWriteLine($WriteThis,  GUICtrlRead($a))
    Next
    If $Filename <> "" Then FileClose($FileName)
EndFUnc

Func Open()
    $FileName = FileOpenDialog("Open saved settings...", "", "(*.ini)", 1)
    $ReadThis = FileOpen($FileName, 0)
    sleep(100)
    $a = 5
    While 1
        $line = FileReadLine($ReadThis)
        If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
        If StringMid($GCR, $a, 1) = "1" AND $line <> "" Then GUICtrlSetData($a, $line);$GCR is my array with gui control types listed
        If StringMid($GCR, $a, 1) = "2" AND $line == "4" Then GUICtrlSetState ($a, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
        If StringMid($GCR, $a, 1) = "2" AND $line == "1" Then GUICtrlSetState ($a, $GUI_CHECKED)
        $a = $a + 1
    Wend
    If $Filename <> "" Then FileClose($FileName)
EndFUnc

so i need to know a type of each gui control, when i read back the data from the file, to know what to do with a "4" or a "1"

they can be simple text data, or state of a checkbox

i need something like:

if GUICtrlGetType($a) = "CheckBox" Then... (set GUICtrlSetState to checked/unchecked according to the saved data, "4" or "1")

ELSE... (set GuiCtrlData to the saved data, since it is an input control)

Looks to me like you have made it difficult for yourself earlier in your script, and my suggestion is that you consider changing it.

When you create the controls you must know what sort of control to create, so if you want arrays of controls then I think you should have a different array for each type of control. So you have $ChkArray[] and BtnArray[] etc.

Then when you save the data to an ini you can have a loop for each control type, and have a section for buttons, a section for checkboxes etc.

There is then no need to work out what type of control each one is and it's easier.

[CheckBoxes]

CheckBoxcount = 5

ChkCaption = stop, include,single,double,none

ChkState = 1,0,0,0,0

ChkTopLeft=10,10,10,10

.

.

.

[buttons]

BtnCount = 2

BtnCaption = .....
