Continue my loop after results window is closed.

Recommended Posts


I have made a program to strip URLs from deviantART into their bbcode for thumbnails. Having a limited grasp of how loops work I fail to make my program loop back so that when the results window is closed the program doesn't end entirely, and the main window is still there and functional.

Here is my code:

Func help()
    MsgBox ( 0, "Thumb Extract Help", "Thumb Extract is a small program by Yatagratsu that takes inputed deviantART Deviation URLs and transforms them into a thumbcode you can use to create thumbnails on various areas of deviantART. You do not have to fill in all the fields, meaning you can create anywhere from 1-5 thumbcodes at any one instance of transforming the field's URLs. This program is ideal for users gathering thumbcode for the dAmn chartroom #Thumbsshare as well. In the incident of the program not running, or if you were to encounter an error or even have a comment about the program in general, you may email zyekye@gmail.com with what you have to say." )

GUICreate("Thumb Extract", 425, 259)
    $text = GUICtrlCreateLabel ( "Enter Deviation URLs:", 10, 5 )
    $input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput ( "", 10, 30, 400 )
    $input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput ( "", 10, 55 )

        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $msg = $help

            $a4 = $string4
            $a5 = $string5
            Call ( "thumbextract" )
            Call ( "results" )

Func thumbextract()
    $a = StringRegExp ( $string,'.+-(\d+)',3 )
    $a2 = StringRegExp ( $string2,'.+-(\d+)',3 )
    $a3 = StringRegExp ( $string3,'.+-(\d+)',3 )
    $a4 = StringRegExp ( $string4,'.+-(\d+)',3 )
    $a5 = StringRegExp ( $string5,'.+-(\d+)',3 )

Func results()
    GUICreate("Thumbs Extracted", 300, 150, -1 )
        if UBound($a)<>0 then $parse&=":thumb" & $a[0] & ": "
        if UBound($a2)<>0 then $parse&=":thumb" & $a2[0] & ": "
        if UBound($a3)<>0 then $parse&=":thumb" & $a3[0] & ": "
        if UBound($a4)<>0 then $parse&=":thumb" & $a4[0] & ": "
        if UBound($a5)<>0 then $parse&=":thumb" & $a5[0] & ": "
    GUICtrlCreateEdit( $parse, 10, 12, 275, 100, 0x0800)

Sorry for the bit of a moronic question, but I'm really struggling with this. Thank you all for all the help you've given me.

Delete - Oops. Misread post.

I think you may want to look at some of the window styles such as $WS_POPUPWINDOW and make it a child window to the main window (parent). Also, you will need to reset all your data entry points when the results window is either opened or closed.

Hope this helps.
