OK, one suggestion to start with. I didn't change GUI 5 as yet:

Code: Select all

; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Read  the INI file into an array
Menus := []
Loop, %BtnCount%
{
   IniRead, Menu, %IniFile%, %A_Index%, Menu, %A_Index%
   IniRead, Price, %IniFile%, %A_Index%, Price, %A_Space%
   IniRead, Options, %IniFile%, %A_Index%, Options, %A_Space%
   Menus[A_Index] := {Name: Menu, Price: Price, Options: Options}
}

Code: Select all

; ##############################################################################

This works brilliantly, hopefully we can make it reflect in gui5 :)

Hi Dyson,

this might give you an idea, how it could be implemented. But I believe it's not the best kind of GUI for your application:

Code: Select all

; ##############################################################################
AddToOrder:
   BtnNumber := SubStr(A_GuiControl, 4)
   Menu := Menus[BtnNumber, "Name"]
   If (Menu = BtnNumber) {
      MsgBox, 16, Error!, No menu stored for button %BtnNumber%!
      Return
   }
   Price := Menus[BtnNumber, "Price"]
   Options := Menus[BtnNumber, "Options"]
   OptNumber := 0
   If (Options <> "") {
      GetCursorPos(GX, GY)
      Gui, Opts:New, +hwndHOPTS
      Options := StrSplit(Options, "|")
      For Index, Option in Options
         Gui, Add, Radio, % (Index = 1 ? "vOptNumber" : ""), %Option%
      Gui, 5:+Disabled
      Gui, Show, x%GX% y%GY%, Options
      While WinExist("ahk_id " . HOPTS)
         Sleep 100
   }
   GuiControlGet, Total
   Total += Price
   GuiControl, , Total, % Format("{:0.2f}", Total)
   DllCall("SendMessage", "Ptr", HMENU, "UInt", 0x00B1, "Ptr", -1, "Ptr", -2) ; EM_SETSEL
   Order := Menu . " - " . Price . "`r`n" . (OptNumber ? "(" . Options[OptNumber] . ")`r`n" : "")
   DllCall("SendMessage", "Ptr", HMENU, "UInt", 0x00C2, "Ptr", True, "Str", Order) ; EM_REPLACESEL
Return
OptsGuiClose:
Gui, 5:-Disabled
Gui, Submit
Gui, Destroy
Return
; ##############################################################################
BTW: I forgot that you need both characters `r`n to create a line break in an edit control when the text is changed via DllCall("SendMessage", ...).

My bad, I forgot to add the function:

Code: Select all

; ##############################################################################
GetCursorPos(ByRef X, ByRef Y) {
   VarSetCapacity(XY, 8, 0)
   RetVal := DllCall("GetCursorPos", "Ptr", &XY, "UInt")
   X := NumGet(XY, 0, "Int")
   Y := NumGet(XY, 4, "Int")
   Return RetVal
}

Ok this works, :dance:

but any chance we can make it appear in middle of screen? I have a Drinks button near the bottom and it doesn't show all options :s

is it also possible to make it so you can tick more than one? like on a burger for example what toppings do you want in? cheese lettuce and ketchup or same with mayo instead? etc

Edit: I also realised it doesn't add to the total on the buttons with options

No problem.

Wouldn't that affect the price?

I'll look at that.

Wouldn't that affect the price.[/quote]

no as they are free add ons, but I like the way u think lol,
Maybe being able to set a price on the options isn't such a bad idea, if no price is set then its a free add on, I would be able to merge all drinks into one button instead of having to separate bottles and cans,

Going back to the button setting page, is there any way I can set colours on buttons? so like all chip relating buttons can be yellow, fish can be red, burgers blue etc, worked it out I need around 11 diff colours

Going back to the button setting page, is there any way I can set colours on buttons?
That's no real challenge. But before going back to the GUI we should complete the layout of the underlying INI file as far as possible.
Multiple selections for options could be managed as CheckBoxes. But you need a way to distinguish between multiple (CheckBoxes) and exclusive (Radios) options, i.e. you need to store a flag in the INI. How should it look like?

Code: Select all

[1] 						; button number
Color=0x0000FF				; red as BGR, we might need different keys for background and text colors
Menu=Burger
Price=4.50
MOptions=Lettuce|Cheese 	; muptiple selection
XOptions=Ketchup|Mayo 		; exclusive selection
[2]
...

yes that looks fine, so we can add cheese and lettuce and ketchup (or) mayo

the colours needed are just the background of the buttons the text is fine as black will just need to make sure I use light colours lol, is there a list of colour numbers I can use as a refrence? I cant find one :(

moving forward with the script I will be adding functionality to the Payment Button, but for now I need a way of voiding items? so maybr thinking is it possible that once a button is pressed (chips for example) I can press chips in the editbox and press void and it can remove it? and decuct the price from the total? may have to change the set up but idk if that's possible? any insights?

Thanks in advance

   DllCall("SendMessage", "Ptr", HMENU2, "UInt", 0x00C2, "Ptr", True, "Str", Order) ; EM_REPLACESEL
Return

ok so this is basically doing the trick but the total is not calculating correctly for the gui8 page, its calculating it all then twice the proce for the last button selected

basically a replica of gui5, but this is where I input the money handed over, to get the change etc so like say the order price comes to 17.99 and they hand me a 20 note I press in 20.00 and it comes up with change: 2.01
(still working on the math part of the code)

this is from the order screen where it calculates the total, works fine:

then once pressed payment it goes here but the total is 2x the price, if i added something else it changes to the correct total Plus the last item entered x2

if you notice the total is actually 0.40 more than it should be here:
