Hi, This is driving me nuts :)

Appreciate any help with this. Thanks.

Dim $GUI_Main, $MenuView1, $MenuView1Views[4], $MenuView2, $MenuView2Views[4]
$GUI_Main = GUICreate("Radio Group Menu Items Problem", 300, 200)

$MenuView1 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&View-1")
For $I = 0 to 3
        $MenuView1Views[$I] = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&" & $Views[$I], $MenuView1)
        If $I = 0 Then GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)
Next;$I

$MenuView2 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&View-2")
For $I = 0 to 3

I'm assuming you're using AutoIt v3.2.12.0 (the code you provided worked fine for me w/ 3.2.10.0, but I could reproduce your error with 3.2.12.0). If I had to guess, I'd say it's related to the fact that the GUIConstants.au3 is no longer technically in use in the way that it was before the update. The file exists, but in its current state, all it does is include GUIConstantsEx.au3 (so, for this script, and all future scripts, you may want to start using GUIConstantsEx.au3 so you don't get hosed when the old one is phased out).

How it works now, instead of your program getting bloated with all of the unnecessary extras (eg, including all of the backend stuff for Listboxes, etc, even when your GUI doesn't use any), you have to include the relevant includes (~)individually for the different classes of items you'd be using.

That being said, I can't find which include would be relevant here. I've trolled through some of them, and even tried including all of the #include entries from the way it was done in 3.2.10.0, but without success.

All in all, I'm unsure if this is just a matter of identifying the right #include file, or a bug, as the help file entry for GUICtrlCreateMenuItem() didn't specify one (this includes attempting to use the ones in the "example" script entry).

Edit:

Just for the sake of argument, I went back and ran it with every standard #include added (whole directory listing for autoit3\include) and it still failed to trigger on the radio-style entries.

Thanks Monamo. Yes, I am using 3.2.12.0 - I would have never thought to associate the issue with the declares in the includes.

but I could reproduce your error with 3.2.12.0).

Just to clarify, the code I posted does not produce an error. Do you get an error with 3.2.12.0?

(so, for this script, and all future scripts, you may want to start using GUIConstantsEx.au3 so you don't get hosed when the old one is phased out).

Noted, good suggestion.

I was under the impression unreferenced functions and constants were discarded during compile.

I've trolled through some of them, and even tried including all of the #include entries from the way it was done in 3.2.10.0, but without success.

Same here, I could not find a single example (even by a google search of the forum) of any script using the "radio" menu style (other than defining it).

All in all, I'm unsure if this is just a matter of identifying the right #include file, or a bug, as the help file entry for

Hoping some (more?) "Guru's" would chime in here. :):) Edited by DaRam

In this case, by "error" I was referring to "no triggered notification via MsgBox"

Known bug.

It was fixed 5 days ago for 3.2.13.0 (and also reported by another user 3 days ago).

Thanks. Can't seem to find v3.2.13.0, only autoit-v3.2.11.12-beta

Presume this means 3.2.13.0 has to wait its turn?
