How to make Toast - New version 2 Aug 18


Recommended Posts

beautiful effects!
Excuse me Mr Melba23, just a question (feature request/suggestion)
could  this udf be adapted for tooltips?
something similar to this javascript library as example (http://www.walterzorn.de/en/tooltip/tooltip_e.htm) move mouse to links on that page to see the effects.

Thank You

Melba23, Had occasion to make use of your very excellent Toast UDF in a recent project. Don't know if's been addressed in the 14 pages of posts so far, but I required the ability to use spec

Why not just use, oh I don't know, tooltips for that?

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

yes, use the same nice graphic effects, but in addition of popup out of the Systray, show it as tooltip as well (using short messages and little images of course...... ? just an idea

Pincopanco,

 

could this udf be adapted for tooltips?

Quite possibly, but not by me! :D

If you want to use any of the code to develop your own version of that Java library, then feel free - all that really needs to be changed is the location where the Toast is created. ;)

Good luck! :)

pica,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums. :)

If you do not want the animation, just delete the 2 DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "AnimateWindow", ... lines. ;)

[NEW VERSION] - 20 May 13

 

Added: You can now display an image file as well as an icon.

 

Thanks to careca for the request. ;)

New UDF, example and zip below. :)

 

Previous versions:

[NEW VERSION] - 13 Feb 12

Fixed:

 

Using the [X] to retract a Toast which returned directly to the script meant that the message queue still held the relevant event. If the retraction was followed by a subsequent Toast before the message queue had been cleared, this queued event was likely to be interpreted by AutoIt as a click on the [X] of the new Toast. The UDF now clears the message queue when a Toast pauses the script awaiting user input to prevent AutoIt acting on a queued event.

Running _Toast_Show before an [X] Toast retracted automatically left an Adlib function running which then retracted the subsequent Toast early.

 

Thanks to 1RV34 for reporting the bugs.


New - Toast location code rewritten. Location now correct when Classic display mode selected and if users reset the work area to place additonal toolbars above the TaskBar.

Thanks to jmon and MilesAhead for the reports - and guinness for spotting the problem both times.


There are now 3 versions of this UDF available in this topic:

1. The original version in this post.

2. A version which can produce a colour gradient in the titlebar - you will need Yasheid's WinAPIEx UDF.

3. A version which can also display resources saved within the compiled exe - you will need Zedna's Resources UDF as well.

As my original intention was to offer code which did not require additional UDFs, I am only seriously supporting the original version.

However, as you can see from the above, I am quite happy to help you develop a more advanced version. No guarantees, but if you have a great idea for an additional feature, do let me know.

A forum query about the small pop-ups that some apps produce from the systray led me to create my version of how this can be done.

By the way, I call these small GUIs "Toasts" for obvious reasons! :'(

There are 3 user functions within the UDF:

1. _Toast_Set: Sets text justification and, optionally, colours and font for Toasts

2. _Toast_Show: Shows the Toast

3. _Toast_Hide: Hides the Toast if it has not retracted automatically

There are pre-set min and max values for Toast width which you can alter if you wish (lines 218-220):

; Set default auto-sizing Toast widths

Local $iToast_Width_max = 500

Local $iToast_Width_min = 150

However, you can override the maximum setting up to the full display width by using the "Raw" parameter.

You will also need an include file (another of my UDFs) to make sure the Toast is large enough to fit the required content. It is included in the zip file below or you can download it from here - just save it as StringSize.au3 in the same folder.

And finally an example script to show it working:

By the way, I realise nearly all of the DLL calls in these UDFs could be made by using commands in other UDFs like WinAPI.au3 - I was trying to prevent the need for any other include files when I wrote these to prevent bloat. :D

As always, kind comments and constructive criticisms welcome - particularly the former! :)

Awesome Melba!!! I tried this UDF and I am very glad to see it working as Charm. Thanks and keep up the good work.

OK, updated to Windows 7, and balloon tips is not working...this appears to be the replacement.

Anyway to tell the toast window where to open?

Anyway to keep the toast window on top?

These might have been answered, but I did not see it, or I missed it.

Thanks

nitekram,

The Toast always opens above the systray (notification area) - there is no option to display it anywhere else. You might like to look at my Notify UDF - that does let you choose which side of the screen and in which direction the notifications appear. :)

The Toast is created with the $WS_EX_TOPMOST extended style - so it should be on top already. ;)

I was reading the parameters (in the header), to see if you could change location - did not see it. I thought it was set to be ontop, but I have a window that went over it and messed up the text. Also because I am using 2 monitors, my toast is not above the systray, but rather on the primary monitor at the very upper left corner.

edit, I also have the start menu (systray) on the secondary monitor, on the bottom

edit2, the graphics card I am using is rather old, and the most resent driver is for 2004 for XP, using that as the Windows 7 drivers - more or less it works, I have seen some issues with an application that is using JAVA, so when I lock my computer, or it times out, that application will crash. I am stating this, as it might be the reason for the text getting messed up

nitekram,

I will look around the forum and see if I can come up with some double monitor location code - as I have only the one it is not something I have ever really though about. :)

As to the "on top" problem, I can only assume that the other window also had the same style applied - I believe Windows then works on creation order to decide which gets priority. ;)

Thanks, hope you find something on the two monitors. As for the other window, it is not an 'on top' window, as I have other windows that I put on it all the time. Since I have a older machine, I am not too worried about that, and if I can get the toast window to show down near the systray, then no worries anyway.

Also, I did put a time out on that, but it did not remove the window, so I used your _Toast_Hide(). Strange as the toast windows kept the delay and went away after using the _Toast_Hide().

nitekram,

I will try and come up with some location code for you to test soon - I hope you will not mind running some test code first so I can see what sort of returns you get from a dual monitor setup. ;)

If you post the code you are using I would be happy to try and debug the problem you are having with getting the Toasts to disappear. :)

I used this:

_Toast_Set(1)
_Toast_Show(0, 'Ticket Number', $aAlertInfo[2], 3)

That did not disappear until after I killed my script, but after I added  _Toast_Hide(), it waited for the 3 seconds and disappeared - I do not mind that, as much as trying to move the toast window down towards the clock.

As for testing, I am working today, until 7:30, and will be working from 730 - 730 tommorrow, so I am yours to use for testing.
 

edit, forgot you have no clue what timezone I am in - eastern or 23:30 gmt, and tomorrow 11:30 gmt - 23:30 gmt

nitekram,

That code as posted works just fine for me - the Toast appears and waits 3 seconds before disappearing. So I am a bit at a loss as to why it does not appear for you. Is the text you are trying to show likely to be too wide? :huh:

Weather permitting, I should be flying tomorrow morning - I will try and get something cobbled together for tommorrow afternoon, which will be late morning your side of the Atlantic. ;)
