Troubles with Checkboxes

15 posts in this topic

Greetings,

I am currently trying to make GUIs again with AutoIT. I had previously made one with radio buttons but that was easy. Now I am having problems with checkboxes or the ability to execute more than one thing at a time. It is for a program selector, you choose which to run, and it runs them for you. All that the menu actually does it copy files. I have not used Case or Switch statements in a long time so I don't remember how to use them properly. My code works fine if there is one checkbox, but when I add the second one, it always pops up the msgbox specified in the elseif statement.

While 1
$Msg = GuiGetMsg()
Switch $Msg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Exit
  Case $button1
    if GuiCtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_CHECKED then 
        RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c md c:\temp\nero8ste2")
        RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\nero\nero8ste2 c:\temp\nero8ste2 /e" )
        RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\installer.exe c:\docume~1\alluse~1\startm~1\programs\startup" )
        RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\cleanup.exe c:\pnpdrvrs\net" )
    Else
        MsgBox(0, "error", "Nothing was selected!")
    EndIf
Case $button2
    if GuiCtrlRead($Checkbox2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
        MsgBox (0, "howdy", "This installs E-Trust")
    Else
        MsgBox (0, "error", "Nothing was selected!")
    EndIf
EndSwitch
WEnd

The GUI itself was made with Koda to make things faster for me. So the above is fine until I put 'case $button2' and the code after it but before EndSwitch. What am I doing wrong?

What does the code for the GUI look like? There is no ElseIf statement. So I assume you're talking bout the Else statements; if so which Else or are you talking bout both Else cases depending on the button clicked? :)

Sometimes when using GUICtrlRead on a checkbox you might not get accurate results about its state - it is better to use

BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1), $GUI_CHECKED)

instead - this code never failed.

While 1
$Msg = GuiGetMsg()
Switch $Msg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Exit
  Case $button1
    if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1), $GUI_CHECKED) then 
        RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c md c:\temp\nero8ste2")
        RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\nero\nero8ste2 c:\temp\nero8ste2 /e" )
        RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\installer.exe c:\docume~1\alluse~1\startm~1\programs\startup" )
        RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\cleanup.exe c:\pnpdrvrs\net" )
    Else
        MsgBox(0, "error", "Nothing was selected!")
    EndIf
Case $button2
    if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox2), $GUI_CHECKED) Then
        MsgBox (0, "howdy", "This installs E-Trust")
    Else
        MsgBox (0, "error", "Nothing was selected!")
    EndIf
EndSwitch
WEnd

Even with this different code, I am constantly getting a pop-up box that says "Nothing was selected". Here is the code for the GUI.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Local $Msg, $button1, $button2, $Checkbox1, $Checkbox2
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 633, 454, 187, 113)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Select a Program to install", 32, 48, 126, 17)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox1", 80, 90, 17, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Nero 8 Essentials Suite 2", 112, 90, 129, 17)
$Checkbox2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox2", 80, 105, 17, 17)
$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("E-Trust 7.1 OEM", 112, 105, 129, 17)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 48, 304, 129, 25, 0)
GUISetState()

Tripredacus,

Try this. I am assuming you only want one thing installed at a time, so I have used radio buttons rather than checkboxes and put them in a group so only one can be selected at any one time. That way you can use an "If...ElseIf...Else" statement to choose what to do:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Local $Msg, $button1, $button2, $Checkbox1, $Checkbox2
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 633, 454, 187, 113)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Select a Program to install", 32, 48, 126, 17)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 70, 80, 200, 50)
$Radio1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio(" Nero 8 Essentials Suite 2", 80, 90, 170, 17)
$Radio2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio(" E-Trust 7.1 OEM", 80, 105, 170, 17)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1) ;close group
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 48, 304, 129, 25, 0)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $Msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Exit
        Case $button1
            if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Radio1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED then 
                MsgBox (0, "Howdy", "This installs Nero")
            ElseIf BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Radio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                MsgBox (0, "Howdy", "This installs E-Trust")
            Else
                MsgBox (0, "Error", "Nothing was selected!")
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Your previous code did not work becasue you had a non-existent $Button2, which always met the criteria for triggering - and of course you had nothing selected to begin with!

You will, of course, need to put your install commands in place of the relevant MsgBox statements.

Ask if anything is unclear,

OK I see what the issue is. Yes there is no button2. Not sure how I even started this app! No I need to use checkboxes because some instances must copy more than one thing. So if box1 is checked and box2 is checked, do (function) for box1 then do (function) for box2. Basically, if the box is checked, it does that thing, and if it isn't, it doesn't. I can't seem to find any good checkbox examples like this to get a better idea how to do this.

But Melba23 just told you how to do it 1 post up?? Replace the radios with checkboxes and you are finished.

Sorry, brain fart. I used to be real good using this app... fell off the horse I suppose. I'll try this out then.

Tripredacus,

If you want the option to do both installs at the same time (or rather consecutively!), try this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Local $Msg, $button1, $button2, $Checkbox1, $Checkbox2
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 633, 454, 187, 113)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Select a Program to install", 32, 48, 126, 17)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox1", 80, 90, 17, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Nero 8 Essentials Suite 2", 112, 90, 129, 17)
$Checkbox2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox2", 80, 105, 17, 17)
$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("E-Trust 7.1 OEM", 112, 105, 129, 17)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 48, 304, 129, 25, 0)
GUISetState()

While 1
$Msg = GuiGetMsg()
Switch $Msg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Exit
    Case $button1
        $fSelected = False
        if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1), $GUI_CHECKED) then
            MsgBox (0, "howdy", "This installs Nero")
            $fSelected = True
        EndIf
        if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox2), $GUI_CHECKED) Then
            MsgBox (0, "howdy", "This installs E-Trust")
            $fSelected = True
        EndIf   
        If $fSelected = False Then MsgBox (0, "error", "Nothing was selected!")
EndSwitch
WEnd

Ask again if it is not right - I might try a third time!

I will try this new idea in a minute. I had found an error in my new code and thought that was why it wasn't working. Basically, the last test (I have 4 checkboxes) completed code from only the Nero option and not the other three. Then I realised I forgot to rename some. Here is the new code.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Local $Msg, $button1, $Checkbox1, $Checkbox2
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 633, 454, 187, 113)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Select a Program to install", 32, 48, 126, 17)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 70, 80, 200, 50)
$Radio1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox(" Nero 8 Essentials Suite 2", 80, 90, 170, 17)
$Radio2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox(" McAfee 30 Day Trial", 80, 105, 170, 17)
$Radio3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox(" OfficeReady", 80, 120, 170, 17)
$Radio4 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox(" PowerDVD", 80, 135, 170, 17)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1) ;close group
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 48, 304, 129, 25, 0)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $Msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Exit
        Case $button1
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\installer.exe c:\docume~1\alluse~1\startm~1\programs\startup" )
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\cleanup.exe c:\pnpdrvrs\net" )
            if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Radio1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED then
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c md c:\temp\nero8ste2")
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\nero\nero8ste2 c:\temp\nero8ste2 /e" )
            ElseIf BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Radio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c md c:\temp\mcafee")
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\mcafee\mcafee_30_day_trial c:\temp\mcafee /e" )
            ElseIf BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Radio3), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c md c:\temp\office")
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\microsoft\officeready c:\temp\office /e" )
            ElseIf BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Radio4), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c md c:\temp\powerdvd")
                RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c xcopy v:\software\powerdvd c:\temp\powerdvd /e" )
            Else
                MsgBox (0, "Error", "Nothing was selected!")
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

This is without any changes from "post 9" above.

Now you only run the first "checked" checkbox, I thought you said you wanted to go through all that were checked??

Take a look at post#9 again and notice that he have one if...then...endif for every checkbox, that's what I think you are after

Tripredacus,

AdmiralAlkex beat me to it. If you want more than 1 thing to happen - you need the Post 9 code. If you want just the first of the checked boxes to run - you need your code at Post 10. If you need just one thing, but the only checked thing, to run - you need the Post 5 code.

Hope that is clear!

Sorry for the kick, but got a question about this script:

Tripredacus,

If you want the option to do both installs at the same time (or rather consecutively!), try this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Local $Msg, $button1, $button2, $Checkbox1, $Checkbox2
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 633, 454, 187, 113)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Select a Program to install", 32, 48, 126, 17)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox1", 80, 90, 17, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Nero 8 Essentials Suite 2", 112, 90, 129, 17)
$Checkbox2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox2", 80, 105, 17, 17)
$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("E-Trust 7.1 OEM", 112, 105, 129, 17)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 48, 304, 129, 25, 0)
GUISetState()

While 1
$Msg = GuiGetMsg()
Switch $Msg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Exit
    Case $button1
        $fSelected = False
        if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1), $GUI_CHECKED) then
            MsgBox (0, "howdy", "This installs Nero")
            $fSelected = True
        EndIf
        if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox2), $GUI_CHECKED) Then
            MsgBox (0, "howdy", "This installs E-Trust")
            $fSelected = True
        EndIf   
        If $fSelected = False Then MsgBox (0, "error", "Nothing was selected!")
EndSwitch
WEnd

Ask again if it is not right - I might try a third time!

I wanted a script that installs selected programs, based it on that script and works it fine :mellow:

Now here's the thing, actually two things. I would like the script to give a message when it's done and then after clicking OK it exits.

I can't seem to find an exit command plus I can't get it to display a message after the programs are done installing. This is what I've got now:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Local $Msg, $button1, $button2, $Checkbox1, $Checkbox2
$Form1 = GUICreate("Programma installatiescript", 600, 450, 187, 113)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Selecteer de programma's die je wil installeren:", 10, 10, 250, 17)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox1", 10, 37, 17, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Office 2007", 27, 39, 129, 17)
$Checkbox2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox2", 10, 54, 17, 17)
$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Nero Burning Rom", 27, 56, 129, 17)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 235, 415, 130, 25, 0)
GUISetState()

While 1
$Msg = GuiGetMsg()
Switch $Msg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Exit
    Case $button1
        $fSelected = False
        if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1), $GUI_CHECKED) then
            RunWait ("Office_2007_NL\setup.exe /config config.xml")
            $fSelected = True
        EndIf
        if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox2), $GUI_CHECKED) Then
            RunWait ("Ahead\Nero-6.6.0.18_setup\Setupx.exe /silent /noreboot /no_ui")
            RunWait ("Ahead\Nero-6.6.0.18_nld_languagepack\Setup.exe /silent /noreboot /no_ui")
            $fSelected = True
        EndIf   
        If $fSelected = False Then MsgBox (0, "Error", "Je hebt geen programma's geselecteerd!")
EndSwitch
WEnd

MsgBox (0, "Klaar!", "Alle geselecteerde programma's zijn geïnstalleerd!")

The MsgBOX at the end would be the one mentioning that the script is done installing the selected programs, but it doesn't appear.

Note: I'm completely new with AutoIt, but I understand how the script works :P

bartgrefte,

You need to put the MsgBox where it will be run - at the moment you have it outside the While...WEnd loop which means it never runs.

As you need to press the button to get the installer to start, just put the MsgBox at the end of the Case $button1 code like this:

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $button1
            $fSelected = False
            If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1), $GUI_CHECKED) Then
                ConsoleWrite("Office" & @CRLF)
                ;RunWait ("Office_2007_NL\setup.exe /config config.xml")
                $fSelected = True
            EndIf
            If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox2), $GUI_CHECKED) Then
                ConsoleWrite("Nero" & @CRLF)
                ;RunWait ("Ahead\Nero-6.6.0.18_setup\Setupx.exe /silent /noreboot /no_ui")
                ;RunWait ("Ahead\Nero-6.6.0.18_nld_languagepack\Setup.exe /silent /noreboot /no_ui")
                $fSelected = True
            EndIf
            If $fSelected = False Then
                MsgBox(0, "Error", "Je hebt geen programma's geselecteerd!")
            Else
                MsgBox(0, "Klaar!", "Alle geselecteerde programma's zijn geïnstalleerd!")
                Exit
            EndIf
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Now when you run the $button1 code, you get either the "nothing selected" MsgBox or the "All done" one. I have added an Exit after the "All done" to exit the script as you wished. There is also an Exit in the Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE code to quit when the [X] is pressed.

Is everything clear? :mellow:

Ah, like that. So simple that I did not see it :mellow:

Thanks!

Gonna try that later on, just now I've been working on getting the script to install CoreAVC....

The 1.9.* versions were a pain in the but, since the silent install switch did not work. Well, it worked, but it was expecting an installation code that I could not enter with a switch, the install ended before even starting. If you ask, putting the registration info into the registry before install did not help....

So after a while I came up with this (when I still was using a batch):

CD %programfiles%
MD CoreCodec
CD CoreCodec
MD "CoreAVC Professional Edition"
CD "CoreAVC Professional Edition"
COPY %cdrom%\Install\CoreAVC1.9.5.0\programfiles\*.* "%programfiles%\CoreCodec\CoreAVC Professional Edition"
CD "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Menu Start\Programma's"
MD CoreCodec
CD CoreCodec
MD "CoreAVC Professional Edition"
CD "CoreAVC Professional Edition"
COPY %cdrom%\Install\CoreAVC1.9.5.0\startmenu\*.* "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Menu Start\Programma's\CoreCodec\CoreAVC Professional Edition"
start /wait REGEDIT /S %cdrom%\Install\CoreAVC1.9.5.0\CoreAVC_Registered_User.reg
start %systemroot%\system32\rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files\CoreCodec\CoreAVC Professional Edition\CoreAVCDecoder.ax",DllRegisterServer
COPY %cdrom%\Install\CoreAVC1.9.5.0\programfiles\CoreAVCDecoder.ax %systemroot%\system32
regsvr32 /s coreavcdecoder.ax

I did a normal install first, then I made a copy of CoreAVC's programfiles folder and startmenu folder and I put the registry info in a reg key..

Now this would not work for some reason with 2.0, however, 2.0 does have a working silent install switch now.

So I let the AutoIt-script do this:

RunWait("REGEDIT /S CoreAVC\coreavc.reg") 
RunWait("CoreAVC\Setup.exe /S")
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "CoreAVC\coreavc_install.bat")

where the batch does:

start %systemroot%\system32\rundll32.exe "%programfiles%\CoreCodec\CoreAVC Professional Edition\CoreAVCDecoder.ax",DllRegisterServer
COPY "%programfiles%\CoreCodec\CoreAVC Professional Edition\CoreAVCDecoder.ax" "%systemroot%\system32"
regsvr32 /s coreavcdecoder.ax

I always hate it when programs can't be installed using a simple /S like switch, with CoreAVC I had to be creative. Now if I could only find a way to install Alcohol 120% silently as well, still haven't found a way for that.

But now I am way offtopic :P
