Last Button Clicked Focus

8 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a way to have that thickened black outline on the last button clicked to be removed, so that whenever you click a button, it still looks like all the other buttons.

Hi sticky, it is ALWAYS best you you give an example script

This is a rather messy way of doing it (I just created a button that was off the GUI that gets the focus as soon as the button is pressed):

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $Button_1, $Button_2, $msg
    GUICreate("My GUI Button"); will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    Opt("GUICoordMode", 2)
    $Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run Notepad", 10, 30, 100)
    $Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button Test", 500, 500)

    GUISetState()    ; will display an  dialog box with 2 button

   ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $msg = $Button_1
                GuiCtrlSetSTate($Button_2, $GUI_FOCUS)
        EndSelect
    WEnd
EndFunc  ;==>Example

Might be better of to use something like

$focus = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 0, 0, 1, 1)

and set the focus to that. Also I don't remember for sure if you can set focus on a Dummy or not, but that might be another option.

Dummy didn't work, after trying this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Local $Button_1, $dummy, $msg
GUICreate("My GUI Button"); will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

Opt("GUICoordMode", 2)
$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run Notepad", 10, 30, 100)
    $dummy = GuictrlCreateDummy()

GUISetState()    ; will display an  dialog box with 2 button

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $msg = $Button_1
            GuiCtrlSetState($dummy, $GUI_FOCUS)
    EndSelect
WEnd

I had that feelig about Dummy but I couldn't remember for sure.

The blank label will work though.

I tried this idea and it half worked, if you look, the Run Notepad still has a slight blue outline on the button. I'm not using the Windows GUI buttons, but rather my own bmps as each button. Here's the main GUI code without any of the functions. The guifocus setting to the fake button is in the function call, instead of the select case.

GuiCreate("Lighting Control", 400, 18, 400, 400, $WS_POPUP, $WS_DISABLED)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Projectors:",0,3,55,18)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Lights:",200,3,40,18)
GUICtrlCreatePic("C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\bar.bmp", 190, 0, 2, 17)
GUISetFont(8)
$btn10 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("On", 60, 0, 40, 18, $BS_BITMAP)
$btn11 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Off", 100, 0, 40, 18, $BS_BITMAP)
$btn12 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Black", 140, 0, 40, 18, $BS_BITMAP)
$btn0 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("On", 240, 0, 40, 18, $BS_BITMAP)
$btn1 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Off", 280, 0, 40, 18, $BS_BITMAP)
$btn2 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Video", 320, 0, 40, 18, $BS_BITMAP)
$btn3 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("More...", 360, 0, 40, 18, $BS_BITMAP)
$btnFake = GUICtrlCreateButton("fake", 500,0,10,10)
GUICtrlSetImage( $btn10, "C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\on1.bmp")
GUICtrlSetImage( $btn11, "C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\off1.bmp")
GUICtrlSetImage( $btn12, "C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\black1.bmp")
GUICtrlSetImage( $btn0, "C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\on2.bmp")
GUICtrlSetImage( $btn1, "C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\off1.bmp")
GUICtrlSetImage( $btn2, "C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\vid1.bmp")
GUICtrlSetImage( $btn3, "C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\more.bmp")

GuiSetState()

WinSetState("Lighting Control", "", @SW_HIDE)
WinSetOnTop("Lighting Control", "", 1)
GuiCtrlSetState( $btnFake, $GUI_FOCUS)
$state = 1

While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()

   Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    ;Destroy the GUI including the controls
            GUIDelete()
    ;Exit the script
            Exit
            
        Case $msg = $btn10
            ProjON()
            
        Case $msg = $btn11
            ProjOFF()
            
        Case $msg = $btn12
            ProjBlack()
        
        Case $msg = $btn0
            LightsON()
            
        Case $msg = $btn1
            LightsOFF()
            
        Case $msg = $btn2
            LightsDIM()
            
        Case $msg = $btn3
            Run("C:\Documents and Settings\projector\My Documents\AutoIt\Lutron Control.exe")
    EndSelect
    
    If WinActive("EasyWorship") Then
        WinMove("Lighting Control", "", GetWindowX(408),GetWindowY(57))
        If $state = 0 Then
            WinSetState("Lighting Control", "", @SW_SHOW)
            $state = 1
        EndIf
    Else
        If $state = 1 Then
            WinSetState("Lighting Control", "", @SW_HIDE)
            $state = 0
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Sleep(5)
WEnd

What I'm doing is placing a small titleless window permanently ontop of another window, as if it is an existing toolbar. It has it's own button style, so I took screen shots and typed in different words, the last part is to keep focus away from the buttons. When I click one, it gets a dark black border, and a box within this one appears with a dotted line. With the focus setting onto a fake button, it removes the dotted lined box but the darker line remains. I know this sounds picky and I'm greatful that the smaller box is now gone. If there isn't a way, then I'll leave it the way it is. Thanks for all your responses so far! Here's a screen shot, the top right is the added row of buttons, for the Projectors and Lights added on top of the program EasyWorship. You can see the remaining black outline on the "On" button next to the "Projector:" label. Posted Image
