Prevent Dotted Focus Lines on Controls

Recommended Posts

Melba23:

The code uses _WinAPI_SetWindowLong, which according to MSDN means that it will not work on x64 systems. If anyone wants to modify the code for x64, please do so.

I'm currently using your UDF to remove focus lines on some radio controls. I'm using it on an x64 Win7 system just fine. Thought I'd let you know.

The example crashes when I select "specific" and then "OK" followed by "Hide upper control focus lines" twice.

I get a "(101) : ==> "ContinueLoop" statement with no matching "While", "Do" or "For" statement.:" error.

Either than that, great UDF!

Go to the line in question and change to...

If $hHandle = $aHandle_Proc[$j][0] Then

DatMCEyeBall,

Sorry about that - the error was introduced into AutoIt with v3.3.8.1 and was fixed in v3.3.9.x. I will update the UDF to prevent it erroring in future. :)

[bUGFIX VERSION] - 25 Jun 13

Fixed: A bug in AutoIt v3.3.6.1 could crash the UDF under certain circumstances - other releases do not show the same error. Small code change to prevent error in any release. :)

Thanks to DatMCEyeBall for finding it. :thumbsup:

New UDF and zip in first post. :)

Hello, even the issue i have is not caused by this udf, it's somewhat still related, and maybe you can give some help.

At normal use, with the udf, (_NoFocusLines_Global_Set() before the creation os the controls)

i click controls and there are no dotted lines, but when i set "GUICtrlSetBkColor" on every control

the last slider (and only the slider, no buttons or anything else) changing color gets the dotted lines, with udf!

On top of that, the slider doesn't change color, without the udf, it has the dotted lines but changes the color.

Got a stripped out script for you to test.

How to reproduce:, msg opens asking for a color, since it's the first run, choose any color, gui appears, click the button "color"

select any color. Done.

careca,

No focus lines appear for me after changing the colour, which makes debugging a bit difficult. :(

But I do see that one of the sliders does not change colour, so I can help with that - try adding "GUICtrlSetState($ColorBtn, $GUI_FOCUS)" at the end of the ColorPick function. That will move the focus from the slider and allow the colour change to take place as the control is redrawn - it then recolours for me. :)

DatMCEyeBall,

Sorry about that - the error was introduced into AutoIt with v3.3.8.1 and was fixed in v3.3.9.x. I will update the UDF to prevent it erroring in future. :)

[bUGFIX VERSION] - 25 Jun 13

Fixed: A bug in AutoIt v3.3.6.1

...

Is that a typo, or was it done on purpose?

That's odd, it's the same code, maybe the version of autoit is different? anyway, that solved the issue, which is weird, since the focus was never on any of the sliders, at the most, the focus should be in the button "color".

It's solved, thank you Melba.

careca,

Great - hearing that I fixed a problem I could not even reproduce is wonderful news! :D

As I mentioned above, I imagine the problem was caused because the UDF blocks the "I now have focus" redraw message as that is the one which draws the focus lines. My guess was that setting the focus to another control would then force a "I no longer have focus" redraw and so change the colour - it seems I was right. :graduated:

DatMCEyeBall,

Does it matter? ;)

Well, a lot has changed since those versions, so you could say: 「Nah, it doesn't matter」.

Seeing as you took over a year to notice the inconsistency, I would say you have proved that beyond any reasonable doubt. :D

Hi,

I love the code as it makes my gui feel so much more professional but I am running into a slight problem.

I am trying to run it along side _uSkin.au3

https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/132864-_uskinlibraryau3-udf-skin-with-dll-free-no-ads-and-fully-functional/

Your code removes the dots but as soon as the skin loads, the dots return.

I have even tired calling your script after the skin loads but still no effect.

Would you have any ideas?

IanN1990,

I am afraid not. I imagine that uSkin interferes with the various focus messages that are being intercepted by the UDF - but as I do not use uSkin I cannot really comment.

I had a feeling that may be the case.

If I had the window handle of a control, could I send a command or msg to remove dotted lines?

IanN1990,

If only it were that simple!

The UDF actually sub-classes the controls - that is to say that it runs its own code (the _NoFocusLines_Proc function) in place of the code that Windows normally runs (the Windows Procedure for that type of control) when messages are sent to the control. This is how the UDF manages to intercept the "focus lines" message at such an early stage - it stops it dead while passing on all the other messages to the existing Procedure for the control so that Windows can still deal with everything else. This "focus lines" message is resent to the focused control every time that the control is redrawn - by intercepting it at the Procedure level, the UDF prevents the message from being actioned every time. Even if there were some way of resetting the focus lines once they were set (and I do not see how this could be the case as the control would need to be redrawn and hence the "focus lines" message would be sent again!) you would need to continually check for their return and remove them again when they appeared, which would add quite a bit of overhead to the script.

I hope the above makes clear why the UDF uses such a complicated approach as sub-classing the control to deal with the problem. It would appear that the uSkin code interferes with this sub-classing - hardly surprising given that it is replacing the standard Windows redrawing code with its own - which means that the additional UDF procedure code is also bypassed. So not a lot I or you can do, I am afraid.

This is great work MeLba23.

I did run into a problem however. It would seem you lose control of the right mouse click on the button.

Just happen to need that in a code I'm working on. But this is really interesting stuff.
learned a lot, so thanks for that!
