Phantom $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN Event

11 posts in this topic

I keep experiencing a situation within my GUI in which a $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN event occurs but without my ever clicking the mouse.

(There is no command designed in the code to generate such an event, and there are no controls in this GUI).

What is causing this? How can I prevent this?

Can you show any code?

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

There's just too much code to place here. However, the GUI and the Event code are as follows:

GUISetState()

While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

$currPos = MouseGetPos ()

.

.

.

If $currentWinGUI = 1 Then

Select

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN ; Something is causing this Event to happen without a mouse

If $dragInProgress = 0 Then

; BEGIN DRAG **************

$dragInProgress = 1

$startX = $currPos[0]

$startY = $currPos[1]

Beep(466, 200) ; This is just to tell me that the event is occurring

EndIf

.

.

.

EndSelect

EndIf

Wend

Func captureScreenNow($captMode)

.

.

.

If $captMode = 1 Then ; ====================== REGION CAPTURE ===========================

GUIDelete($mainForm) ; WORKS

WinWaitClose($mainFormName, "")

; Places Bitmap of Screen on top of Screen

$captureFilename = createFileName()

_ScreenCapture_Capture($captureFilename, 0, 0, -1, -1, False)

$fakeScreen = GUICreate("Invisible Name", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, -3, -3, $WS_POPUP,$WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME+$WS_EX_TOPMOST+$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW) ; Full Screen, without Titlebar, not on Task Tray

$dragInProgress = 0

GUISetBkColor(0x999999, $fakeScreen)

WinWait("Invisible Name")

$winGUIhandle = WinGetHandle("Invisible Name")

$penGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND ($winGUIhandle)

$selPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate ()

_GDIPlus_PenSetColor($selPen, 0xFF999999)

_GDIPlus_PenSetDashStyle($selPen, $GDIP_DASHSTYLEDOT)

$currentWinGUI = 1

$backgroundPic = GUICtrlCreatePic ($captureFilename, 0, 0, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight)

GUICtrlSetState ($backgroundPic, $GUI_DISABLE) ; Makes image a de facto background; allows controls to exist on top

Sleep(10)

GUISetState()

WinActivate("Invisible Name")

WinWaitActive("Invisible Name")

Sleep(20)

$msg = 0 ; Clears Event

EndIf

.

.

.

EndFunc

Here is an example of OnEvent with mouse clicks.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)  ; Change to OnEvent mode 
$mainwindow = GUICreate("OnEvent Mouseclick", 200, 100)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CLOSE")

GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN, "LeftClick")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_SECONDARYDOWN, "RightClick")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
  Sleep(1000)  ; Idle around
WEnd

Func LeftClick()
  MsgBox(0, "GUI Event", "You left clicked!")
EndFunc

Func RightClick()
  MsgBox(0, "GUI Event", "You right clicked!")
EndFunc

Func CLOSE()
    Exit
EndFunc

Sorry. I retract my previous statement.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$mainwindow = GUICreate("OnEvent Mouseclick", 200, 100)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
          CLOSE()

        Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
          LeftClick()
        
        Case $GUI_EVENT_SECONDARYDOWN
          RightClick()
    EndSwitch
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func LeftClick()
  MsgBox(0, "GUI Event", "You left clicked!")
EndFunc

Func RightClick()
  MsgBox(0, "GUI Event", "You right clicked!")
EndFunc

Func CLOSE()
    Exit
EndFunc

I will try the OnEvent mode.

Enlighten me about Switch / EndSwitch.....(I can't find info on these among the AutoIt functions documentation)...how is this distinguished from Select / EndSelect ? Does this find the value of GUIGetMsg() automatically without having to use an additional variable to represent it within the Switch / EndSwitch lines?

Thanks
