  1. Features: Create modern looking borderless and resizable GUIs with control buttons (Close,Maximize/Restore,Minimize, Fullscreen, Menu) True borderless, resizeable GUI with full support for aerosnap etc. Many color schemes/themes included. See MetroThemes.au3 for more details. 3 type of Windows 8/10 style buttons. Modern checkboxes, radios, toggles and progressbar. All buttons, checkboxes etc. have hover effects! Windows 10 style modern MsgBox. Windows 10/Android style menu that slides in from left. Windows 10 style right click menu Credits: @UEZ, for the function to create buttons with text using GDIPlus. @binhnx for his SSCtrlHover UDF Version - Changelog - 07.10.2017 Bugfixes: Fixed a bug where certain controls in the GUI (Tabs/Listviews) were not handled properly because of a bug in _WinAPI_DefSubclassProc. Thanks @LarsJ. Removed the automated handling of the control buttons (except for fullscreen), as they were triggering the close/min/max/restore message multiple times when the user clicked them on the child window multiple times during a sleep, which caused the parent window to also receive the message. Fixed a bug where in certain situations the active child window prevented the fullscreen activation from working properly on the parent window. Fixed a bug where the resize cursor was not displayed properly when hovering over the corners. -> Currently it is required to reset the cursor to default if you use any controls very close to the window border and move your mouse from the corner to the control. I will try to think of something later. Fixed a bug where the lines of the _Metro_AddControlButton_Back were misplaced on certain DPI settings. Also fixed the hover not working with this button. Other small changes New features: Added _Metro_AddHSeperator/_Metro_AddVSeperator to create simple vertical/horizontal seperator lines in the GUI. Version 5.0 - Changelog - 03.09.2017 New features: Hover effects, minimize,maximize,restore and other GUI effects are now working natively, there is no need to call any function in a loop. This also allows the hover effects to work if the main script is paused due to "Sleep, Msgbox etc." The hover effects now work slightly faster and create less CPU usage, however the startup time of the main script is slightly increased. Thanks to @binhnx for his SSCtrlHover UDF. Maximize, Minimize, Fullscreen and Restore buttons now work natively, meaning you don't need to set actions for them manually. If you prefer handling the buttons manually, then you can disable this by setting "$ControlBtnsAutoMode = False" Added _Metro_CreateButtonEx2 -> Creates a slightly rounded button without a frame around. Hovering changes the button color to a lighter color. Added _Metro_CreateCheckboxEx2 -> Creates a modern round checkbox. Added _Metro_CreateRadioEx -> Creates a metro style radio with colored checkmark. Added "_Metro_RightClickMenu" an easy to use rightclick menu. You can use this with listviews or anything else. Check out the example for a demo of the rightclick menu and how to implement it. -> Rightclick on Button3 to show the menu. Added multiple new themes with flat colors and updated the old themes. Check out the example for a demo with all themes by pressing the menu button -> Themes Demo Improvements: You can now delete all controls that have hover effects(buttons, checkboxes etc.) using GUICtrlDelete($ControlHandle). This will also automatically release all resources and remove the control from the global array. Many other optimizations,changes and bugfixes. Download UDF with example:
  2. So i needed a way of creating borderless resizable, dragable GUIs while maintaining the AeroSnap(or whatever it is called now) functionality of Windows. The problem was that creating $WS_POPUP GUIs killed the AeroSnap functionality of Windows, it also caused @SW_Maximize to go fullscreen instead of just maximizing. I found some examples of borderless GUIs for C++, the solution was really easy: WM_NCCALCSIZE I have collected some other examples of resizing and dragging borderless GUIs, tweaked them a and wrote a simple to use UDF with easy usage with just one line: _GUI_EnableDragAndResize($Form1) Example with UDF: #include <Windowsconstants.au3> #include <WinAPIGdi.au3> Global $GLOBAL_MAIN_GUI, $Win_Min_ResizeX = 145, $Win_Min_ResizeY = 45 #region Example $Form1 = GUICreate("Example GUI", 300, 150, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX)) GUISetBkColor(0x282828, $Form1) _GUI_EnableDragAndResize($Form1,300, 150) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 90, 60, 120, 30) GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, 768 + 8 + 128) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $Msg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $Msg Case -3, $Button1 Exit EndSwitch #cs uncomment this if you have a very large listview or any other control that is very close to the gui borders, this makes sure the resize cursor gets reset properly.
