Installation Gui

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I've created a GUI that uses the GUICtrlCreateTab, GUICtrlCreateTabitem and GUICtrlCreateList.

When launched three files are read to display, one for each tab that I've created.

The files contain:

Application Name;Path to installation

Tab1 - Displays all of our Default installation packages

Tab2 - Displays all of our "layered" installation packages (multiple installs looped together for a specific group)

Tab3 - Displays a list of our Uninstall packages. (created to hack out remnants that are sometimes left behind after a regular uninstall)

Everything was working fine, until I decided to be a little creative and split everything up by the three tabs.

Now whenever the files are read in, the very top line is a 0. 'zero'

**Is there a different way to display my readout so that the zero is not displayed? Not really sure why it is displayed in the first place.

This is still a major "Work in Progress".

FYI - This GUI ties into a much larger GUI

Haven't studied you code to be able to understand your problem but I would expect you will get problems because you seem to have forgotten

GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")   ; end tabitem definition

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

Oops!

OK, put in the: GUICtrlCreateTabitem( "" )

Any other assistance on removing the zero from the list of items read in?

Just testing out today, since I'm not at work, I changed the input files to local files on my machine.

$DefInstallFile = "c:\DefAppInstalls.txt"

$LayInstallFile = "c:\LayAppInstalls.txt"

$UninstallFile = "c:\AppRemove.txt"

Inside of all three files I just put the following info:

Adobe 8.0;\\Server\Share\Adobe80.exe

AdobeWriter;\\Server\Share\AdobeWriter.exe

Once launched, the information is read in as:

0

Adobe 8.0

AdobeWriter

I don't know why that leading zero is showing up.

You need to post code that will at least run. What is $InstallFile? (in the installApp function)

Actually got the zero line taken care of.

I finally updated AutoIT to v3.2.12.1 and that cleared the problem.

The $InstallFile should have actually been $msgDisplay.

Too much updating one portion of script, and not throughout.

Sorry for wasting any of your time on this.

Guess I could have posted the finalized script, at least this portion, for those interested.

This is a fairly large script that I'm working on, so I've posted the portion that has to do with the initial question I had.

Creation of the InstallationGUI

#region     ;Installation GUI - Start
$InstallGUI = GUICreate("Application Installs", 402, 634, $WinPos[0] - 100, $WinPos[1] )
GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Please select the application to install and click OK", 20, 8, 364, 26 )
GUICtrlSetFont( -1, 11.5, 800 )
GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Most Applications require Administrative Credentials", 73, 38, 364, 26 )
GUICtrlCreatePic("\\Server\share\myLogo.bmp", 35, 530, 334, 68 )
$InsButton01 = GUICtrlCreateButton( "OK", 94, 481, 62, 24 )
$InsButton02 = GUICtrlCreateButton( "EXIT", 227, 481, 62, 24 )
#endregion

#region     ;Installation GUI - Tab creation
$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab ( 87, 70, 210,394)
$tab0 = GUICtrlCreateTabitem ("Default Applications")
$DefaultMsg = GUICtrlCreateList( "", 90, 93, 203, 370 )
$tab1 = GuiCtrlCreateTabItem("Layers")
$LayersMsg = GUICtrlCreateList("", 90, 93, 203, 370 )
$tab2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Uninstall")
$UninstallMsg = GUICtrlCreateList("", 90, 93, 203, 370 )
GUISetState(@SW_HIDE,$InstallGUI)
#endregion

#region     ;Installation GUI - Read each input file - END of Installation GUI
inputFile( $DefInstallFile );Read in the Default Applications list
inputFile( $LayInstallFile );Read in the Layers Application list
inputFile( $UninstallFile ) ;Read in the Uninstall Application list
#endregion

This portion is in a larger While / WEnd for handling any InstallationGUI selections:

;Installation GUI
        Case $msg = $InsButton01
            If GUICtrlread ($tab) = 0 Then                      ;DefaultApps tab visible
                $AppList = GUICtrlRead( $DefaultMsg, 0 )        ;Read from DefaultApps Tab
                installApp( $AppList,$DefInstallFile )          ;Call the installation function
            EndIf
            If GUICtrlread ($tab) = 1 Then                      ;Layers tab visible
                $AppList = GUICtrlRead( $LayersMsg, 0 )         ;Read from Layers Tab
                InstallApp( $AppList,$LayInstallFile )          ;Call the installation function
            EndIf
            If GUICtrlread ($tab) = 2 Then                      ;Uninstall tab visible
                $AppList = GUICtrlRead( $UninstallMsg, 0 )      ;Read from Uninstall Tab
                InstallApp( $AppList,$UninstallFile )           ;Call the installation function (uninstall)
            EndIf
        Case $msg = $InsButton02                                ;Close Install GUI
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $InstallGUI)

Here is the Function that reads in the files as soon as the GUI is launched:

Func inputFile( $FileInput )                                    ;Installation GUI, Read in Files
    $IFilePath = ""
    $IFileNames = ""
    $IFile = FileOpen( $FileInput, 0 )

    IF $IFile = -1 THEN
        $IFileNames = "Unable to extract Applications for Install"
        MSGBOX( 4096, "ERROR", $IFileNames )
    ENDIF
    While 1
        $line = FileReadLine( $IFile )
        IF @ERROR = -1 THEN EXITLOOP
        $aRecords = StringSplit( $line, ";" )
        $IFileNames = $aRecords[1] & "|" & $IFileNames
        $IFilePath = $aRecords[2] & "|" & $IFilePath
    WEnd

    FileClose( $FileInput )
    Select
        Case $FileInput = $DefInstallFile
            GUICtrlSetData( $DefaultMsg, $IFileNames )
        Case $FileInput = $LayInstallFile
            GUICtrlSetData( $LayersMsg, $IFileNames )
        Case $FileInput = $UninstallFile
            $msgDisplay = $UninstallMsg
            GUICtrlSetData( $UninstallMsg, $IFileNames )
    EndSelect
EndFunc

Finally the Installation portion of the GUI:

FUNC installApp( $msgApp,$msgDisplay )                          ;Installation GUI, Run installations
    $file2 = FileOpen( $msgDisplay, 0 )
    IF $file2 = -1 THEN
        MSGBOX( 0, "ERROR", "Unable to pull paths" )
        EXIT
    ENDIF
    While 1
        $line2 = FileReadLine( $file2 )
        IF @ERROR = -1 THEN EXITLOOP
        $bRecords = StringSplit( $line2, ";" )
        IF $msgApp = "0" THEN
            MSGBOX( 0, "ERROR", "Please make another selection." & @CRLF & "This selection will be removed in a future update", 4 )
            ExitLoop
        ELSEIF $bRecords[1] = $msgApp THEN
            $InstallOpt = MSGBOX( 4, "INSTALL", "You chose to install: " & $bRecords[1] & @CRLF & "Choose YES to continue" )
            IF $InstallOpt = 6 THEN
                GUICtrlSetState( $InsButton01, $GUI_DISABLE )
                GUICtrlSetState( $InsButton02, $GUI_DISABLE )
                MSGBOX( 0, "INSTALL", $bRecords[1] & @CRLF & $bRecords[2] )
                GUICtrlSetState( $InsButton01, $GUI_ENABLE )
                GUICtrlSetState( $InsButton02, $GUI_ENABLE )
            ELSE
                MSGBOX( 0, "ABORT", "Installation aborted", 2 )
            ENDIF
        EndIf
    WEnd
EndFunc

All three of the input files will have the display name for the application then a semicolon and the actual path to the application.

Example

Adobe 8.0;\\server\share\adobe\Adobe80.exe

Any pointers on better scripting would be appreciated.

Thanks,
