Auto Installer

3 posts in this topic

Ok, I have written several scripts to install programs automatically that I use every day! Now, just to add some cool professionalism to my scripts I have got into GUIs... If someone would be so kind as in to provide some guidance to me. I am newb at coding... Anywho, here is my code.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Vision Install Center", 255, 110, 255, 255)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please select which type of vision you wish to install.", 5, 5)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Install", 95, 75, 60)
GUICtrlCreateCombo ("Student", 93,40, 65)
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"Master")
$background = GUICtrlCreatePic ("vsion.JPG", 5, 30, 42, 39)
GUISetState ()
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)

While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
Wend

Ok, the combo has 2 drop down items.. Student and Master. Basically this is what I want it to do! If I click student and then click the install button.. It will then close this window and launch another executable with the "run("blah.exe")" command. If I click master and click install, it will use the run command for a different executable and also close this window. I understand so far how to close the window.. I can use processkill("myexe.exe") and I can run seperate executables with the Run command but what I don't know is how to connect the drop down box content with the install button. Or even how to make the install button do something. Anyone mind sharing some light?

You'd just want to take what you already have and assign variables for your creation of the controls (in this case, your "Install" button and your combobox). Here's an example:

CODE

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Vision Install Center", 255, 110, 255, 255)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please select which type of vision you wish to install.", 5, 5)

$buttonInstall = GUICtrlCreateButton("Install", 95, 75, 60)

$comboInstallType = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Student", 93, 40, 65, $CBS_DROPDOWN)

GUICtrlSetData($comboInstallType, "Master", "Student")

$background = GUICtrlCreatePic("vsion.JPG", 5, 30, 42, 39)

GUISetState()

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

ExitLoop

Case $msg = $buttonInstall

If GUICtrlRead($comboInstallType) = "Student" Then

_StudentInstall()

Else

_MasterInstall()

EndIf

ExitLoop

EndSelect

WEnd

Func _StudentInstall()

;student installation code

EndFunc

Func _MasterInstall()

;master installation code

EndFunc
