MsgBox Class

02 Apr 2018, 20:24

Hello all, I've seen and created some MsgBox functions for a little more control, but thought I would write a class with more functionality. If you have something better, great, but I think some might find this useful and more options are always better I say. Below you will find an example script and the function script. Explanations are in the example, but, of course, feel free to question or comment.

Example Script:

Code: Select all

; MsgBox Class Example in AutoHotkey - 2018 Ian Pride                                 ;
; Began - 5:04 PM Monday, April 2, 2018												  ;
;                                                                                     ;

; This is an example using my MsgBox class for AutoHotkey. 							  ;
; This should showcase all usage - at least for the most part						  ;
;                                                                                     ;
; The default MsgBox in AutoHotkey is great for simple use and, of course, I am grat- ;
; eful for it, but sometimes I need more control and so I wrote this class.   		  ;
; With MsgBox class you can:                                                          ;
; 		- set all styles used by Windows MSDN MessageBox found here:                  ;
; 	https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms645505(v=vs.85).aspx   ;
; 		- create quick normal AHK MsgBox with a way to change its' styles with the    ;
; 		  separate Debug() function - single use - not stored 					      ;
; 		- create indvidual MsgBox objects that can be altered at any time             ;
; 			- Change the MsgBox's Owner ID, Title, Text, and Styles					  ;
; 			- Dislpay the MsgBox at any time with the MsgBox.Dislpay() method         ;
;       - All forms of calling can return an option Eg:  YES/NO = 6/7 respectively    ;
;                                                                                     ;

You're welcome, I hadn't seen that before, but looks fill-featured, I'll have to check it out. I try to build my own stuff first before I use other's that's why I wrote this, but like I said; it's always good to have more choices :D Thanks for the feedback and option.

2 edits to the script above in the main class MsgBox (changes reflected in the OP): _styles:=0 to _styles:="" and Ok to OK
__New(_title,_msg:="",_hwnd:=0,_styles:="",delim:="|"){
this.Owner:=_hwnd
this.Title:=_title?_title:A_ScriptName
this.Message:=_msg
If (_styles!="" And !IsNum(_styles)){
SetFormat,Integer,H
hex_array:=[]
Loop,Parse,_styles,%delim%
hex_array.Push(HexToDec(this.Styles[A_LoopField]))
For idx, hex in hex_array
new+=hex
this.Style:=new
SetFormat,Integer,D
} Else If IsNum(_styles)
this.Style:=_styles
Else this.Style := ( this.Styles["MB_OK"]
+ this.Styles["MB_ICONINFORMATION"] )
}

I'm also going to add the ability to change properties on Obj.Display() call.

Obj.Display() is now editable (reflected above):

Code: Select all

MsgBox.Display(        "New Title"           ; New title
               ,       "New  Text"          ; New text
               ,       WinExist("A")       ; New owner

Can you incorporate all the features in "MagicBox by alguimist" into your class?
