I'm trying to adapt the Generic GUI.

This is my current layout:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59281190/MushClient.jpg

Now, i've manage to remove lots of things, but how can i put my miniwindows plugins inside this one, and make the windows static in position? The only thing that i need working is the reload the windows (in order to delete all of the content) and the scroll (can be without a bar).

I still didn't manage to get that.

You have entered too much data - maximum is 6000 characters.

Not even trying to split the plugin.

The plugin is here:

Thank you.

Ok, so i started messing around with this. Slowly.

I have a problem. In the GUI there is a top bar, that aare macros (hotkeys), but i can't manage to change what the F1, F2, ..., F12 do.
The code that i get from the plugin is this:


-- update the hotkeys
function update_hotkeys ()

  -- To stop F1 opening the windows help dialog:
  -- File -> Global Preferences -> General, "F1, F6 are macros"

  data = msdp["HOTKEY"]

  if data ~= nil then
    hotkey = {}
    index = 0
    startpos = 1
    max = 0
    for i=1,string.len(data),1 do
      if string.byte(data,i) == 9 or i == string.len(data) then
        index = index + 1
        hotkey[index] = string.sub(data, startpos, i)
        startpos = i+1
      end -- if
    end -- for

    if index == 3 then
      hotkeys_name[tonumber(hotkey[1])] = hotkey[2]
      hotkeys_action[tonumber(hotkey[1])] = hotkey[3]
      Accelerator ("F"..hotkey[1], hotkey[3])
    end -- if
  end -- if

end -- update_hotkeys

function draw_hotkeys ()

  for i=1,12,1 do
    create_hotkey(i)
  end -- for

end -- draw_hotkeys

function create_hotkey (hotkey_number)

  win = "hotkey_window_"..hotkey_number
  hotkey = "hotkey_"..hotkey_number

I only need to get the values from MushClient itself, or find a way to set them.

Hi Nick,

The bar has buttons F1 to F12.
I know the code is that, but i can't find out how to set what the buttons do.
For example, i have macros assined on MushClient, F2 make me invisible. With that code, the creation of a bar with buttons, is there a way to get that macro and put it on the bar?
That is my problem for now.

The full plugin, with all working except changing what the buttons do:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59281190/LoK_GUI2.xml

Nick, the things may not load for you cause of the images that are needed.

You want to click the button and have it send an existing macro? You can get the macro text.


print (ExportXML (3 , "F10" ))


That prints:


<macros>

  <macro name="F10" type="send_now" >
  <send>whatever</send>

  </macro>
</macros>


With a bit of fiddling with a regular expression you could extract the macro text.


macro = ExportXML (3 , "F10" )
macrotext = string.match (macro, "<send>(.*)</send>")
print (macrotext)


That prints:


whatever

Thank you Nick.
I've tried that on the MUD and everything works. Now, my problem is how to implement that on the bar, like it is! :(
It has s many functions, update_hotkeys, draw_hotkeys, etc.

I figure out something:

data = msdp["HOTKEY"]

This line was missing in the plugin.
The only problem here is that the MUD that i play, doesn't support msdp. So i need to change all that to get the values of local macros, and not server hotkeys.
Still need some help please, cause i've tried endless things. Some give errors on fucntions, and some tries not even let the plugin load.

Still trying and not getting the macros title or at least pressing for example F2 and send the command assigned, in this case, invis.
Don't know how to do that. I've read the posts on the icon bar (similar) but the way this is done, i can't manage to adapt.
I want to keep the backgrounds on the buttons and the 'F1' to 'F12' labels on the buttons, created in there in yellow.

I'm not sure where your problem is. Can you put in some debugging displays to clarify? You are talking about clicking on the button, right, not just hitting (say) F5?

You have a function: hotkey_up

Is that called? If not, you need to work out why. If so, is it not sending what you want it to send?

Hello Nick. Correct, getting the value stored in local F5 for example, and when i press the button F5, it sends what it's stored there.
All it is sending is:

Hotkey not defined. Type 'hotkey' to set it.

But this is a msdp command, it goes get the hotkey value on the MUD itself, not on MushClient.
That's where my problem is.

Well, you are no longer returning anything. So how about:


function get_hotkey_value (hotkey_string)
  if hotkey_string == "hs_F1" then
    print("teste")
    return 1
  elseif hotkey_string == "hs_F2" then
