Question about dynamically built menus

3 posts in this topic

So I wrote this function that loops through a starting directory and creates a menu->submenu structure mirroing the directory->subdirectory structure of the starting directory I pass to it. My problem is that I'm not sure how to assign the dynamically generated buttons to different variables so that I can check the status of those variables to perform action on... If anyone can offer some insight, i'd appreciate it... btw, i'm new to autoit so if there's something obvious i'm missing, sorry for the noob question.

Func _DirMenuGen($fp,$menu)
    Dim $arrFile,$newMenu,$val
    $search     = FileFindFirstFile($fp & "\*.*")  

    If $search = -1 Then GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("<Parsing Error>",$menuTempParent)
    While 1
        $file = FileFindNextFile($search) 
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        
        $fileAttrib = FileGetAttrib($fp & "\" & $file)
        If @error Then 
            GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("<Parsing Error>",$menuTempParent)
            ExitLoop
        Else
            If StringInStr($fileAttrib, "D") Then
                $newMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu($file,$menu)
                _DirMenuGen($fp & "\" & $file,$newMenu)
            Else
                If $file <> "desktop.ini" Then
                    If StringRight($file,4) = ".lnk" Or StringRight($file,4) = ".url" Then
                        GUICtrlCreateMenuItem(StringTrimRight($file,4),$menu);These should be set to variables but I don't know how... =/
                    Else
                        GUICtrlCreateMenuItem($file,$menu);Same as above.
                    EndIf
                EndIf
            EndIf
        EndIf
    WEnd

    FileClose($search)
EndFunc

Thank you for the response MsCreatoR but when I try to run "GetFolderToMenu_Example.au3" or "Menu_With_Icons_Incl.au3" -- I get an error: "Cannot redeclare a constant" referenced on line 9. I searched both pages and "Global Const $SRCCOPY = 0x00CC0020" is only declared once so I don't understand the error but meh, I don't see what your huge script is doing anyways. Any insight?

Also... the function is written very specifically for the Docs and Settings\All Users\Start Menu directory and works great. The menu builds jsut fine. My problem is that for the rest of my buttons on my gui, i assign them variables and then use a while loop to check the status of GUIGetMsg() to check to see if that variable is = to that of my buttons and if so, perform action (like all of examples in the online documentation). Back to my problem, with my dynamic generation, I just don't see how I can assign variables to those buttons.

Can I grab the values of those buttons after the fact or something or do I need to add something to my function in order to make this work?
