Need help with multiple GUI's and GUIOnEventMode

8 posts in this topic

I am changing my code from GUIGetMsg to GUIOnEventMode and have come unstuck. The old code used to have a loop waiting for response from the 2nd GUI, but from that I have read here, 'There can be only 1'.... While loop that is and my old script used 2.

what I want to do is pause the script , waiti for an action from the 2nd GUI then continue with the function. Is this possible?.

A basic script here is similar to what I want to do

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

#Region ### Multiple INI sections GUI ###
$Multi_GUI = GUICreate("Multiple Sections", 288, 162, 404, 313, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_GROUP, $WS_BORDER, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))
$Multi_lv = GUICtrlCreateListView("                         Select A Section", 8, 8, 270, 113, BitOR($LVS_REPORT, $LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS), BitOR($WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT))
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, 0x101E, 0, 265)
$MultiImport_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Import", 16, 128, 75, 25, 0)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, '_multi')
$MultiCancel_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 104, 128, 75, 25, 0)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, '_multi')
$MultiDelete_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 192, 128, 75, 25, 0)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, '_multi')
#EndRegion ### Multiple INI sections GUI ###

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Dialog", 316, 233, 347, 263)
GUISetIcon("D:\003.ico")
$GroupBox1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 8, 1, 297, 193)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&OK", 65, 203, 75, 25, 0)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, '_ShowGUI')
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Cancel", 162, 203, 75, 25, 0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func _ShowGUI()
    GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $form1)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Multi_GUI)
; GUI shows
; Wait for input\actions from 2nd GUI
; Where While loop used to be with Select case statements, waiting for button clicks.
    
; Wait until GUI closed and run next step
    MsgBox(0,'', 'Running Next Step when I should be waiting')
EndFunc

Func _multi()
    MsgBox(0,'', 'Performing desired action'); perform some action
    GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $form1)
    GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $Multi_GUI)
EndFunc

MINOR EDIT @ 9:20

Hi Valuater

I don't have the msgboxes in the script they are just for this problem. What should happen is the script pauses until the 2nd GUI (ini file imported) closes then run the next code (do actions based on info from the ini file). The 'Just click the next button ' was just to show that the function is not pausing, if that makes any sense.

I am playing around with adding functions for the 2nd GUI to the while loop but with no success, is this the right method ?.

I keep the 1st GUI showing and just disable it, I think it looks better. Also do you need to add the GUISetState(@SW_HIDE), I mean is it good practice?.

Yeah, hiding is ok, saves recreating the Gui. You may need to look at using GuiSwitch() to change events from one Gui to the other.

I have looked at GUISwitch but that would create another loop like the While loop so I would expect the same result. I have tried playing around with the code and still cannot get it to work.

Here is 1 Gui using OnEvent mode and 1 Gui using MessageLoop mode

:)

Hi MHz

Thanks for the reply. the 1 Gui using OnEvent mode and 1 Gui using MessageLoop mode code worked best. I changed the check for exiting the loop and added the rest of the code and the loop works as desired, I was trying to use the Adlibenable functionality without minimal success until your code. The final piece is below

Do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    $win = WinGetState('Multiple Sections'); Get the status of the Multiple Sections window.
    
    Switch $msg[0]
        Case $MultiImport_btn
            If _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($Multi_lv) <> '' Then; Import button pressed and item selected.
                $CurIndex = _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($Multi_lv, True); Get the indexes of the selected items.
                
                If $CurIndex[0] > 1 Then; More than 1 name seleted.
                    MsgBox(16, 'Greedy', 'Please select only one Section to import.')
                Else
                    $Section = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($Multi_lv, $CurIndex[1]); Set the first selected section name.
                    Switch_gui()
                    Check_INI($Section)
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            EndIf
            
        Case $MultiCancel_btn
            Switch_gui()
            ExitLoop
        Case $MultiDelete_btn
            $var = _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($Multi_lv, True)
            
            If $var[0] = 0 Then; No items selected.
                MsgBox(16, 'Make A Selection', 'There are no items selected for deletion', 3)
            Else; Items sre selected
                
                For $i = 1 To $var[0]; Delete selected sections from the ini.
                    IniDelete($OI_INI, _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($Multi_lv, $var[$i]))
                Next
                _GUICtrlListView_DeleteItemsSelected(GUICtrlGetHandle($Multi_lv)); Delete selected items from the listview.
            EndIf
            
            If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($Multi_lv) = 0 Then; File has no sections.
                FileDelete($OI_INI); Delete the ini (easy clear of blank lines).
                FileClose(FileOpen($OI_INI, 2)); Create a blank one.
                Switch_gui()
                ExitLoop
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
Until Not BitAND(WinGetState("Multiple Sections"), 2); loop until the window is not visible.
