Checking the state of a check box

15 posts in this topic

Hi,

I did some searching on this and I get the impression that it involves using the BitAND function, but I don't really understand how it works precisely, nor how I would use it on a form I didn't create in AutoIt. What I'm trying to do is automate a configuration process, and part of that involves going through a list of check boxes, and turning one of them on. If that checkbox is already checked I don't want to check it again, thus unchecking it. Thanks.

And an example:

GUICreate('Example',200,200)
$CHECKBOX = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("This is a test",25,25,100,20)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    If $MSG = -3 Then
        Exit
    EndIf
    If GUICtrlRead($CHECKBOX) = 1 Then 
        $STATE = "CHECK"
    Else
        $STATE = "UNCHECK"
    EndIf
    TrayTip("Checkbox State",$STATE,1)
    Sleep(20)
WEnd

GuiCtrlRead($CHECKBOX) = $GUI_CHECKED and $GUI_UNCHECKED will do the samething aswell.

It`s need to include GUIConstantsEx.au3

What I'm trying to do is automate a configuration process, and part of that involves going through a list of check boxes, and turning one of them on.

Try this:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("_IsChecked Example", 250, 100)
$CheckBox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("CheckBox", 25, 25)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)

GUISetState()

;This shows that it can be used on external GUIs
MsgBox(64, "_IsChecked", "$CheckBox _IsChecked: " & (_IsChecked("_IsChecked Example", "Button1") = 1), 0, $hGUI)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $CheckBox
            ConsoleWrite("$CheckBox _IsChecked: " & _IsChecked($hGUI, $CheckBox) & @CRLF)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _IsChecked($sTitle, $iCtrlID)
    Return ControlCommand($sTitle, "", $iCtrlID, "IsChecked")
EndFunc

@Zedna and others:

As i understood, the OP needs to check not only AutoIt GUI...

how I would use it on a form I didn't create in AutoIt

So the “IsChecked” command in ControlCommand() is the best solution for both needs :)

That ControlCommand with the "isChecked" seems like it would work, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to identify the checkbox. I'm trying to set one of the checkboxes in this window to checked. But when I use the window inspector it just gives me one ID and one title for that entire menu of checkboxes. I've also tried using Send({-} {+}); to uncheck it, then check it, but that doesn't seem to be very reliable. I appreciate all the responses though, and once I figure out the above problem they'll probably be very useful. Thanks.

ControlTreeView should work here, but it's always return -1 for me:

Opt("WinDetectHiddenText", 1)

WinActivate("[CLASS:#32770]", "Privacy Slider")
$IsCheccked = ControlTreeView("[CLASS:#32770]", "Privacy Slider", "SysTreeView321", "IsChecked", "#1|#0")

The ClassNameNN of the control is SysTreeView321.

I'll check out ControlTreeView and see what results I get. I hope I don't have to mess with the registry, I may end up way over my head. I agree, it is a head scratcher.

update: I get the same results as MrCreatoR with "Settings" in place of "Privacy Slider". Select seems to be working correctly, but I get -1 when I do IsChecked.

It's working with _GUICtrlTreeView_GetImageIndex()...

#include <GuiTreeView.au3>

;Opt("WinDetectHiddenText", 1)

If Not WinActivate("[CLASS:#32770]", "&") Then
    MsgBox(48, "Error", "Window not found." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "OK ==> EXIT", 3)
    Exit
EndIf

$h_TreeView = ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:#32770]", "&", "SysTreeView321")

$s_TextByIndex_1 = ControlTreeView("[CLASS:#32770]", "&", "SysTreeView321", "GetText", "#1|#0")
$s_TextByIndex_2 = ControlTreeView("[CLASS:#32770]", "&", "SysTreeView321", "GetText", "#1|#2")

$h_Item_1 = _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem($h_TreeView, $s_TextByIndex_1)
$h_Item_2 = _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem($h_TreeView, $s_TextByIndex_2)

$IsChecked_1 = "ERROR"
$IsChecked_2 = "ERROR"

If $h_Item_1 <> 0 Then $IsChecked_1 = _GUICtrlTreeView_GetImageIndex($h_TreeView, $h_Item_1) = 0
If $h_Item_2 <> 0 Then $IsChecked_2 = _GUICtrlTreeView_GetImageIndex($h_TreeView, $h_Item_2) = 0

$sResults = StringFormat( _
    'First Index in "Security" (%s) IsChecked = %s\n' & _
    'Third Index in "Security" (%s) IsChecked = %s\n', $s_TextByIndex_1, $IsChecked_1, $s_TextByIndex_2, $IsChecked_2)

ConsoleWrite($sResults)

:)

GetImageIndex seems to be working great now. Thanks for the help guys. Now, I'm trying to use SetImageIndex to check the box if it is unchecked, but it doesn't seem to do anything:

_GUICtrlTreeView_SetImageIndex($h_TreeView, $h_Item_1, 0)

I've also tried sending a tab, several down keystrokes, and a {+} and that doesn't work, and also tried "Check" and "Uncheck" using ControlTreeView and neither of those works either. I get the feeling I'm misunderstanding SetImageIndex in some way. And again, thanks so much for all the help guys, very much appreciated.
