GUI Brainstorm Session

Recommended Posts

I would like to make a GUI with several behaviors, but I would like to brainstorm with our community before I embark, because I can foresee several problems arising that I do not know if there are solutions for. I included a dummy GUI just for a visual idea of what I am looking to do, along with a description of the behaviors desired. Also, a list of issues that I am unaware of how to resolve. Thanks in advance for any direction you can provide.


User Runs Gui that appears as a Plain Gui with several Add buttons.

If User presses Add SF, then Gui Resizes and Adds the Appropriate ComboBox.

If User presses Add FA, then Gui Resizes and Adds the Appropriate ComboBox

If User presses Remove SF (or FA), then Gui Resizes and Removes the Appropriate ComboBox

In the Event that User types in their own value into a ComboBox, GUI Recalcs the values in InputBoxes

User Presses "Done" and GUI calls Func


1) Possilbe to Resize Gui? Or must Delete and Re-Create?

2) Can OnEvent mode work if user types a value into the ComboBox rather than selecting? When I tried, it didn't work.

3) How can I calculate values or set behaviors for Controls not yet created? In other words, I will need to GuiCtrlRead a ComboBox to Calculate and GuiCtrlSetData for a GuiCtrlInput. But how can I declare a function to do so? It seems that it will be an issue to Assign the ComboBoxes as Variables.

4) Is OnEvent mode, the direction I should take with this GUI?

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

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ###
$Form2 = GUICreate("Dialog", 405, 346, 321, 254)
$GroupBox1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Add GuiCtrls In Here", 8, 5, 265, 250)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&OK", 286, 11, 75, 25, 0)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Cancel", 285, 44, 75, 25, 0)
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Done", 285, 76, 75, 25, 0)
$Button4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add SF", 285, 110, 75, 25, 0)
$Button5 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add FA", 285, 145, 75, 25, 0)
$Button6 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Remove SF", 285, 182, 75, 25, 0)
$Button7 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Remove FA", 285, 217, 75, 25, 0)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Total Price", 285, 275, 85, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Total Reduction", 285, 300, 85, 21)
$Input3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Total Value", 285, 250, 85, 21)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
