katoNkatoNK,

it gives an include error

What error do you get? :huh2:

Have you tried with StringSize in the same folder as the Toast UDF? ;)

Hi,

I want to create a toast to my entire screen(i mean the height and width of the toast should be based on my screen height and width size). is that possible to do? any suggestion for me ?

Syed23,

As so much of the Toast UDF is taken up by code to make the GUI as small as possible, I cannot really see the point in altering it to become very large. ;)

I would suggest using something along these lines (credit to Gary Frost): :)

Hannes123,

I have no idea why running the UDF in an the RDP session produces the Toast in the wrong vertical location. I can only imagine that UDF misreads the position of the remote taskbar in some way, but as I do not use RDP I cannot really suggest any way to get round it. :).

I have the same issue in windows 7 x64. The toast appears in the wrong vertical position when the taskbar is in vertical position. It appears at the start menu position. When I use the toast on a computer using Aero theme or Windows 7 basic theme, there is no problem, but the problem appears on computers running Windows classic theme.

I'll look into it when I have time. Anyway, very nice script, thanks Melba!

jmon,

If you find an answer please let me know - I run Vista x86 so I cannot do any detective work myself. :)

I don't think this is a x64 issue and probably can be replicated on Vista x32 too. For example when I have 'Classic mode' enabled and I move the taskbar to the top WinGetPos returns the following values >>

[0] = -2

[1] = -2

[2] = 1370 ; @DesktopWidth is 1366

[3] = 30

but when I'm using Aero the results are different >>

[0] = 0

[1] = 0

[2] = 1366 ; @DesktopWidth is 1366

[3] = 30

As you can see the first difference is the position of the taskbar, the second problem is @DesktopWidth has a difference of 4px, but in Aero mode this is the same value (I would expect that because it spans the width of the monitor!) Therefore the logical solution (after 30mins of staring at my screen) was to calculate the offset difference of X and Y, multiply by 2 and subtract from @DesktopWidth/Height e.g. -2 * 2 = -4 and then 1366 - -4 = 1370 the new desktop width.

Hope this helps.

jmon,

I hve located the problem and it is easy to fix. ;)

Thanks to guinness' detective work it seems the taskbar is bigger when in Classic - so the comparisons of $aTray_Pos[2] = $iDesktopWidth and $aTray_Pos[3] = $iDesktopHeight in the _Toast_Locate function were not met when locating the Toast and it defaulted to 0,0. I need to change both comparisons to >= so that they fire when in Classic. I will get a new version out soon - but see below. Thanks for finding the bug. :)

guinness,

Thanks for determining the different taskbar size in Classic - that was the key. I am not however completely convinced by the change you have proposed - I can see why there needs to be a small correction to the position when the taskbar is at the top and to the right in Classic, but at the moment I do not think your suggestion completely solves the problem. I will need to investigate further. :D

I tested the workaround by running Toast_Example.au3 and moving the taskbar around at the same time, with all of the examples it positioned correctly. I didn't want to change the function too much as I didn't know how you would feel if I were change the If...ElseIf...EndIf statement or completely re-write the function.

Let me know what you decide. :)

Thanks for Toast. Makes a nice delayed start splash. :)

If I could make a small suggestion or feature request, in the positioning could you have an option to take account of the screen work area? I have RocketDock right over the tray area and it's partially obscured when toast comes up. I wrote a little utility that sets the work area so that maximized windows don't obscure RocketDock.

MilesAhead,

I am looking at the positioning of the Toast at the moment (see the threads above) so I will see what I can do for you - but no promises. ;)

Can you post (or PM) your script showing how you changed the work area so I do not develop something which does not work for you. :)

Sure. I'm using this code:

Func _SetDesktopWorkArea($left, $top, $right, $bottom)
Local Const $SPI_SETWORKAREA = 47
Local Const $SPI_GETWORKAREA = 48
Local $tRcWA = DllStructCreate($tagRECT)

DllStructSetData($tRcWA, "Left", $left)
DllStructSetData($tRcWA, "Top", $top)
DllStructSetData($tRcWA, "Right", $right)
DllStructSetData($tRcWA, "Bottom", $bottom)

Return _WinAPI_SystemParametersInfo($SPI_SETWORKAREA, 0, DllStructGetPtr($tRcWA))
EndFunc   ;==>_SetDesktopWorkArea

jmon,

The fix I mentioned in post #92 above will work on the current version so you can just amend your copy to tide you over. :)

The new version I am working on at the moment uses an entirely different method of locating the Toast so I am hopeful it will satisfy both you and MilesAhead. Keep an eye open for it. ;)

You may be aware of it already, but I should note that the system ignores the Desktop Work Area setting if Taskbar AutoHide is enabled. For that reason I never enable AH for Taskbar.
