Progress bar help

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am new to AutoIt script. I need help with creating a progress bar that will:

1. Have a certain X and Y form dimension.

2. Has three labels that will accept string variables on top of the progress control which can change dymanically during the progress bar is advancing.

3. Has a Cancel button at the bottom of the progress bar control to allow cancelling the action.

I like to have this script to be able to accept 4 arguments from the command line, one is for the total value of the maximum number of total progress and other three are for the three string variables I mentioned above.

I hope to compile this script to .exe and use it with my other scripts.

Is it possible to create an AutoIt script as I described? I go a sample script below which I played with, but I seem to get much futher.

Thanks in advance.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <ProgressConstants.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Sample Progress Bar", 421, 125)

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(25, 25, 350, 20)

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 400, 350)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

For $i = 1 to 100

GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, $i)

Sleep(50)

Next

Do

Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

@CluM09

Welcome to autoit forum :)

Search in helpfile (F1 in SciTE) or on the forum...

$w = 100
$h = 20
GuiCtrlCreateProgress(5, 5, $w, $h)

For the rest, search for While :lmao:

Cheers, FireFox.

Thank you for the sample code for the progress bar.

I tried your code, and it works, but it does not show the button on the form. I wanted to re-arrange the labels so that the labels will show on top of the progress bar, but they still show below the progress bar.

How can I have the lablels show above the progress bar? Below is the code after I edited it.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <ProgressConstants.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Dim $MaxProc

$Form1 = GUICreate("Sample Progress Bar", 420, 125)

$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 1", 20, 64, 150, 20)

$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 2", 20, 84, 150, 20)

$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 3", 20, 104, 150, 20)

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(20, 20, 380, 20)

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 400, 450)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

If $CmdLine[0] > 0 Then

GUICtrlSetData($Label1, $CmdLine[1])

GUICtrlSetData($Label2, $CmdLine[2])

GUICtrlSetData($Label3, $CmdLine[3])

$MaxProc = $CmdLine[4]

Else

$MaxProc = 100

EndIf

For $i = 1 to $MaxProc

$guiMsg = GUIGetMsg()

If $guiMsg = $Button1 Then Exit

GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, $i)

Sleep(50)

Next

I two more questions.

1. How can I control the space height between the progress bar and the label?

2. Is there any way to have a fieldset drawn around outside the three labels or progress bar?

Thanks again.

Hello,

I already figured it out. One thing I like to know is whether I can have the progress bar advance from right to left when it reahces its maximum value. Below is my code, but it does not reverse the progress direction as I think it should.

Any idea how I can have the progress bar to reverse its direction when it reaches its maximum value? In other words, I like to have the progress to act like a ping-pong fashion.

Thanks again.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <ProgressConstants.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Dim $MaxProc

$Form1 = GUICreate("Sample Progress Bar", 420, 210)

$descgroup = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Detail", 15, 10, 390, 100)

$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 1", 25, 30, 150, 20)

$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 2", 25, 55, 150, 20)

$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 3", 25, 80, 150, 20)

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(15, 130, 390, 20)

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Cancel", 185, 170, 65, 25)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

If $CmdLine[0] > 0 Then

GUICtrlSetData($Label1, $CmdLine[1])

GUICtrlSetData($Label2, $CmdLine[2])

GUICtrlSetData($Label3, $CmdLine[3])

$MaxProc = $CmdLine[4]

Else

$MaxProc = 100

EndIf

Progress()

Func Progress()

For $i = 1 To $MaxProc

If GUIGetMsg() = $Button1 Then Exit

GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, $i)

Sleep(50)

If $i = 100 Then

GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, "")

For $i = 100 To 1 Step - 1

If GUIGetMsg() = $Button1 Then Exit

GUICtrlSetState($Progress1, $i)

Sleep(50)

Next

EndIf

Next

EndFunc
