Detecting click on com object
« on: April 04, 2014, 08:35:25 am »
Is there any way to detect the user's mouse-click on a com object? I see I can detect that the com object has the focus using

hasFocus = DialogControlState(Schmandle, 0, 5, "")

and I'm doing this on a 5-second timer; but it would be neat to be able to "know" the moment it's been clicked. I'm using a variation on the example at

http://techsupt.winbatch.com/webcgi/webbatch.exe?techsupt/tsleft.web+WinBatch/Dialog~Editor/Dialog~Editor~version~6.X/Samples+Animated~GIF~in~Dialog.txt

I can turn on the com object and show the animated gif, but I'd like the user to be able to turn it off by clicking it.

This should work; It detects an onclick event for the gif with an ID=gif:

The part where

Code: [Select]
If Element.id == "gif"
always comes back false. I've inserted another line:

Code: [Select]
X = Element.id
and it evaluates to an empty string.

Any guess why?

Answering my own question... moving the id=gif tag up into the body tag makes it work.

Code: [Select]
      case MSG_INIT                                         ; Standard Initialization message
         document = DialogObject( MyDialog_Handle, 3, DLGOBJECT_GETOBJECT )
         document.open()
         cGIF = 'C:\code\GoldSMS\sending.gif'   ;!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
         If ! FileExist(cGIF) Then Exit
         cHTM = StrCat('<html><head>',@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,'<style type="text/css">',@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,'<!--',@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,'body { overflow:hidden; }',@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,'-->',@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,'</style>',@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,'</head><body id=gif bgcolor="#FF8000">',@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,'<img border="0" src="%cGIF%" width="110" height="70" >',@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,"</body>",@CRLF)
         cHTM = StrCat(cHTM,"</html>",@CRLF)
         document.writeln(cHTM)
         document.close()

No sure why the id= in the img statement doesn't work for you. I tested on Win7 with IE 10, and it worked for me. Keep in mind that now you that you moved the id the onclick event will trigger and execute that could when the user clicks anywherre in the mshtml Com Control.
