MenuItem Checkbox

Recommended Posts


I have a MenuItem that I would like toggle-able.

Case $CTRLMsg = $MenuItemRunSchedule
    If GUICtrlRead($MenuItemRunSchedule) = $GUI_UNCHECKED Then
        MsgBox(0,"unnit was checked",GUICtrlRead($MenuItemRunSchedule))
    ElseIf GUICtrlRead($MenuItemRunSchedule) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
        MsgBox(0,"unnit was unchecked",GUICtrlRead($MenuItemRunSchedule))

That's the code I'm running in the controls loop but nothing happens. No change in the check nor any message. It seems like GUICtrlRead doesn't return whether it is checked or not. Anyway around this?

It seems like GUICtrlRead doesn't return whether it is checked or not. Anyway around this?

It's return all states that this control have, and it's have more than $GUI_CHECKED... try this:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("Test Script", 300, 200)

$Menu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Menu")
$MenuItemRunSchedule = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Run Schedule", $Menu)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $MenuItemRunSchedule
            If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($MenuItemRunSchedule), $GUI_UNCHECKED) Then
                MsgBox(0, "", "unnit was checked")
                GUICtrlSetState($MenuItemRunSchedule, $GUI_CHECKED)
                MsgBox(0, "", "unnit was unchecked")
                GUICtrlSetState($MenuItemRunSchedule, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
