TaskDialog UDF

20 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

This piece of code allows to create the neat MsgBox-alternative called TaskDialog.

Create a limitless amount of custom buttons, easily assign custom icons, create so-called commadn buttons and much more. Microsoft introducued this powerful tool in Windows Vista, but with the help of XTaskDialog, this UDF will work on Windows 2000, XP, and 2003, too. The DLLs are included as binary data in TaskDialog.dll.au3 and are extracted to the temporary directory if required. On Vista and Seven, the native calls are used.

The download includes an example and the DLL as Binary code in an au3.

DOWNLOAD TaskDialog.zip Posted Image

Enjoy ;)

Cool UDF, btw. Is there any possibility of running it without creating a temp dll?

You could try to use the memDLL UDF ;) And on Vista, the DLL won't be created I think ( Have no Vista :D)

Just another link I forgot to correct after my page redesign.

I think, there will also be an update this year to the most recent DLL for XP.

P.S

How did you got the notification for the reply in this topic, the last reply was in 2008, and as i understand it, the «Wath topic» option expired after a while, or i missing something?

That's another alternative.

Still I like the "command buttons" and it is not easy to rebuild them from scratch.

Btw, I updated to the most recent XTaskDlg-DLL for Windows 2000+XP and removed bugs in x64-Mode.

Hi ProgAndy!

This is awesome but you are declaring a few variables that Constants.au3 already have which causes errors if both are included, you may want to fix that.

#include "TaskDialog.au3"
#include <Constants.au3>

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\Constants.au3(215,48) : ERROR: $IDOK previously declared as a 'Const'.

Global Const $IDOK = 1 ; OK button was selected

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\Constants.au3(216,56) : ERROR: $IDCANCEL previously declared as a 'Const'.

Global Const $IDCANCEL = 2 ; Cancel button was selected

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\Constants.au3(217,54) : ERROR: $IDABORT previously declared as a 'Const'.

Global Const $IDABORT = 3 ; Abort button was selected

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\Constants.au3(218,54) : ERROR: $IDRETRY previously declared as a 'Const'.

Global Const $IDRETRY = 4 ; Retry button was selected

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\Constants.au3(219,56) : ERROR: $IDIGNORE previously declared as a 'Const'.

Global Const $IDIGNORE = 5 ; Ignore button was selected

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\Constants.au3(220,50) : ERROR: $IDYES previously declared as a 'Const'.

Global Const $IDYES = 6 ; Yes button was selected

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\Constants.au3(221,48) : ERROR: $IDNO previously declared as a 'Const'.

Global Const $IDNO = 7 ; No button was selected

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

Those constants weren't there when I wrote it I think. I'll update ;) ... Done

Great! Posted Image

Note that you commented $IDCLOSE that isn't a duplicate (but I'm not sure where these are used so I don't know if it's really needed?).

They are the return values of the function if you use the default buttons (same values as MsgBox) The constants are not used in the UDF directly.

So shouldn't IDCLOSE still be declared then? Or I could add it to Constants.au3 so it's with the others (probably best to mention it in the 3.3.10 thread first, but I don't see why anyone would say no).

Hmm, I don't really care, I never use IDCLOSE. This is always Case Else together with IDCANCEL ;) Why not add IDCLOSE = 8, IDHELP = 9 to constants.au3 to fill the hole between IDNO and IDTRYAGAIN?
