move multiple windows through dllcall

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

i know i can use

DllCall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseCapture")
   DllCall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hWnd", "window here","int",0xA1,"int", 2,"int", 0)

to move a window, but is there a way i can move multiple windows?

i have a script where if u click on a label in the window, hold the mouse down and move you can drag the window to the desired position as i have the style and ex style set to

BitOR($WS_BORDER, $WS_POPUP), BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)

this is the only way i can do this, the script contains more then one window and are all set to the above styles

is there a way i can move more than one or all of the windows?

something like

DllCall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseCapture")
   DllCall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hWnd", "window one","int",0xA1,"int", 2,"int", 0)  
   DllCall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseCapture")
   DllCall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hWnd", "window two","int",0xA1,"int", 2,"int", 0)

but it didnt work

im not good with dll calling =)

thanks

Maybe you should take a look at SlimShady's nice example on moving windows by clicking on a label...

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
AutoItSetOption("TrayIconDebug", 1)

;Initialize variables
Global $style1
Global $IniFile
Global $GUIWidth
Global $GUIHeight

$GUIWidth = 250
$GUIHeight = 250
$IniFile = StringTrimRight(@ScriptFullPath, 3) & "ini"

$GUI_hwnd_1 = GUICreate("New GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight)

$Drag_btn = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Drag window", 100, 100, 75, -1, $SS_SIMPLE)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xCCCCCC)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

$GUI_hwnd_2 = GUICreate("New GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight)

While 1
   Sleep(25)
   $CursorInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo($GUI_hwnd_1)
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   Select
          
      Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         GUIDelete($GUI_hwnd_1)
         Exit

      Case $CursorInfo[2] AND $CursorInfo[4] = $Drag_btn
         DragWin($GUI_hwnd_1)
        
   EndSelect

WEnd

Func DragWin($hwnd)
   $OldPos = 0
   $OldMousePos = MouseGetPos()
   Local $MousePos
   Local $WinPos
   Local $offset_x, $offset_y
   Local $OldOpt
   $OldOpt = Opt ("WinWaitDelay", 1)
   GUISetCursor(9, 1, $hwnd)
   Do
      Sleep(20)
      $CursorInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo($hwnd)
      If NOT ($OldPos = $CursorInfo[0] + $CursorInfo[1]) Then
         $MousePos = MouseGetPos()
         $WinPos = WinGetPos($hwnd)
         $NewPos = $WinPos
         If $MousePos[0] > $OldMousePos[0] Then
            $NewPos[0] = $WinPos[0] + ($MousePos[0] - $OldMousePos[0])
         Else
            $NewPos[0] = $WinPos[0] - ($OldMousePos[0] - $MousePos[0])
         EndIf
         If $MousePos[1] > $OldMousePos[1] Then
            $NewPos[1] = $WinPos[1] + ($MousePos[1] - $OldMousePos[1])
         Else
            $NewPos[1] = $WinPos[1] - ($OldMousePos[1] - $MousePos[1])
         EndIf
         $OldMousePos = $MousePos
         $OldPos = $CursorInfo[0] + $CursorInfo[1]
         WinMove($hwnd, "", $NewPos[0], $NewPos[1])
      EndIf
   Until NOT $CursorInfo[2]
   GUISetCursor(2, 1, $hwnd)
   Opt ("WinWaitDelay", $OldOpt)

sorta lol, i can already move the window using a much simplier method, below i have recreated slimshadys exact example

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$GUI_hwnd_1 = GUICreate("New GUI", 250, 250)

$Drag_btn = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Drag window", 100, 100, 75, -1, $SS_SIMPLE)

GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xCCCCCC)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
   $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
   Select
      Case $Msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         Exit
      Case $Msg = $Drag_btn
         _Drag()
   EndSelect
Wend

Func _Drag()
   DllCall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseCapture")
   DllCall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hWnd", $GUI_hwnd_1,"int",0xA1,"int", 2,"int", 0)
EndFunc

but i cant figure out how to move more than one window if i can at all, i want to move about 7 windows at once by clicking on a label in just one of them

Make an array of each window and use a For loop for each?

Well lets see if I can whip up a little code:

Dim $Window[5]; makes an array with elements 0-4

; Not sure if the syntax is right for WinGetHandle, but this should make sense
$Window[0] = WinGetHandle("x","")
$Window[1] = WinGetHandle("x","")
$Window[2] = WinGetHandle("x","")
$Window[3] = WinGetHandle("x","")
$Window[4] = WinGetHandle("x","")

; Loop through the array and move each window
For $i = 0 to 4
    _Drag(  $Window[$i] )
Next

; It's that simple, that last bit, the 3 lines, loops through each element of the array
; Hope that makes sense, feel free to ask.


; Modified your function to accept an array, not tested, might work? :)
Func _Drag( $WindowHandle )
   DllCall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseCapture")
   DllCall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hWnd", $WindowHandle,"int",0xA1,"int", 2,"int", 0)
EndFunc

i thought i would start simple for testing purposes and i used 2 windows, doesnt work =(, if u click drag in the window it will move the other one but not both, only moves the "a" window.
