Creating a button in the menu?

10 posts in this topic

Hello

I've already ask the question in the topic description :)

but here it comes again.

I have this menu:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$Menu = GUICreate("MENU", 374, 203, 456, 204)
$MenuItem1 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Homepage")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
WEnd

Is it possible to make $MenuItem1 to a button, that for expample could show a msgbox? without have to make a submenu?

Ask if you don't understand what I mean ;)

Regards

If all you want is a button then why dont you create a button?? Or use a "rebar"

Don't you mean a "toolbar" ?

I actually dont know, if it's really called "toolbar" then why is it called "rebar" in the helpfile??

Might want to look again in the help, a rebar holds 1 or more toolbars or controls.

I think that what the OP wants is to be able to perform an action by simply clicking on a Menu instead of a having to create a MenuItem. That can't be done (AFAIK), however if all he wants is an item on the main menu bar that will perform an action, that we can do. Just place this in your Menu code. It places a clickable item in the main menu bar.

Global $Menu_Test = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Test", -1)

GEOSoft you were absolutly right.. I look in the help file, but didn't understand what to do, now I know.. I just have to place a -1.. simple, but smart :)

Thanks

- By the way does any of you know why it makes error when I try to make my whole script into a function like

Func _script()

; whole script comes here

EndFunc ;==> _script()

I would like to do this because then I can just #include the .au3 in the menuGUI.au3 and then call the function if the button been pressed?

because I can't make it work right now..

Probably becuase you have other functions in your script and you can not create a function inside of another function.

I've heard something about the an adlib - something who could do that.. but if I can't is there then any smarter way to insert it into the GUI insted of posting the whole code in there?

In all fairness, we would have to take a look at your existing script and an idea of what you want to do. AdLib is probably not the way to go. I suspect that it's just a matter of separating your functions.
