hey guys i have a function set to a button, this function has its own GUI

now i have two problems which i cannot find the solution for

1. first, the function has a next button which loops the function, my first problem is that it is making another window each time the function is looped, how do i close each window when next is pressed? and as such keeping only the 2 windows open? the main menu and only 1 window for the function?

2. this same function exits the whole thing when exit is pressed, how do i set it so that it only closes the window/s for that function only so it can return to the main menu?

here is the code for the main menu:

$gui=GUICreate("Utilities Collection")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $gui)
$Button1=GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 346, 5, 50, 25)
$Button2=GUICtrlCreateButton("Random number", 5, 5, 100, 25)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("creates a random number between and including 1 and 5500" & @lf & "for Death Rulettes in the V2 clone", 5, 30)
$Button3=GUICtrlCreateButton("File Maker", 5, 70, 100, 25)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Creates a file with any extension, perfect for premaking a script, config or text file", 5, 95) 
$Button4=GUICtrlCreateButton("Record an error", 5, 125, 100, 25)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Records an error from a window as a file", 5, 150)

main menu works fine and so do the other functions, its only this one i want to fix:

Func randomnumber()
$LowerLimit = 1
$UpperLimit = 5500

$RandomNumber = Random($LowerLimit,$UpperLimit,1)

GUICreate("RandomNumber", 100, 100)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
GUICtrlCreateLabel($RandomNumber, 40, 5)
$Button1=GUICtrlCreateButton("Next", 20, 45)
$Button2=GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 60, 45)

While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $msg
        Case $Button1
        randomnumber()
        Case $Button2
        Exit
        EndSwitch
        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
    GUIDelete()
EndFunc

tried search and even help to no avail

thanks in advance

You can do it like this in the second message loop in the randomnumber function:

Func randomnumber()

   Local $hSecondGUI = GUICreate("RandomNumber", 100, 100)
   GUISwitch($hSecondGUI)
   .
   .

   Switch GUIGetMsg()
       Case $Button1
           GUIDelete($hSecondGUI)
           randomnumber()
        
    
       Case $Button2, $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
           ExitLoop
   EndSwitch
...
EndFunc

See if it can help you:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

Dim $hGUI1 = GUICreate('GUI1', 200, 200)
Dim $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button1', 65, 90, 70, 25)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $Button1
            Do
                Sleep(20)
            Until _CallGUI2()
    
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            GUIDelete($hGUI1)
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
    Sleep(20)
WEnd


Func _CallGUI2()
    Local $hGUI2 = GUICreate('GUI2', 200, 200, 20, 20, -1, -1, $hGUI1)
    Local $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button2', 65, 90, 70, 25)
    GUISetState()
    
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $Button2
                GUIDelete($hGUI2)
                Return False
                
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                GUIDelete($hGUI2)
                Return True
        EndSwitch
        Sleep(20)
    WEnd
EndFunc
