How to make Toast - New version 2 Aug 18

Recommended Posts

MilesAhead,

I am working on the AutoHide logic at the moment. The AH state at logon is stored in the registry, but it appears that it is not altered by any subsequent changes unless the change is still in force at logoff. ;)

So I may have to look at a double check: - Check the position of the taskbar and if it is hidden, use its position to locate the Toast; if it is not, then use the WorkArea. What happens to your RocketDock if the taskbar hides? :)

It is a weird thing. I did some scripts to catch if the user changed the auto hide option while my script was running. It didn't do me any good. Seems like if AutoHide is on, all bets are off. I'll be interested to see how you implement it. I might pick up some tips on using more indicators than just work area. :)

Also your utility is different in that it doesn't necessarily care about users maximizing windows. You calculate for Toast so it may be moot in your implementation.

I don't know if this will help but I use this function >>

Func _TaskbarHidden() ; 0 = Shown Or 1 = Hidden
    Local Const $ABM_GETSTATE = 0x00000004
    Local $aReturn
    $aReturn = DllCall('shell32.dll', 'uint', 'SHAppBarMessage', 'dword', $ABM_GETSTATE, 'ptr*', 0)
    If @error Then
        Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    EndIf
    If BitAND($aReturn[0], 0x01) Then
        Return 1
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_TaskbarHidden

Sorry. I missed your question first time I read the post. RocketDock just sits where it is. I never set taskbar to autohide.

MilesAhead & anyone else reading,

Please try this beta code and see how the Toast placement works for you. It basically uses the set work area if the taskbar is visible (which should satisfy MilesAhead) but reverts to the Taskbar position if it is hidden (with some changes to original code to cater for Classic mode and its oversized taskbar). It has worked fine for me in Vista x32 - confirmation it works in other OSs would be helpful. :)

I didn't think that function I posted would be any use to you.

Edit: I'll try and test tomorrow.

guinness,

On the contrary. I had been searching for something like that and only found the registry key. Thanks - and I will add you into the credits when I release it. :)

With my program using Toast beta it didn't show toast at all. It must have positioned off screen.

This mod of Toast_Locate works for me. I move task bar to top left bottom right and it seemed to accommodate it. For making space for RocketDock I set the work area manually.

It uses _GetDesktopWorkArea as shown here:

;AutoIt3 Forum code to get Desktop WorkArea
Func _GetDesktopWorkArea(ByRef $left, ByRef $top, ByRef $right, ByRef $bottom)
Local Const $SPI_SETWORKAREA = 47
Local Const $SPI_GETWORKAREA = 48
Local $tRcWA = DllStructCreate($tagRECT)
If _WinAPI_SystemParametersInfo($SPI_GETWORKAREA, 0, DllStructGetPtr($tRcWA)) Then
$left = DllStructGetData($tRcWA, "Left")
$right = DllStructGetData($tRcWA, "Right")
$top = DllStructGetData($tRcWA, "Top")
$bottom = DllStructGetData($tRcWA, "Bottom")
Return True
EndIf
Return False
EndFunc   ;==>_GetDesktopWorkArea

MilesAhead,

Thanks for the code. I will compare it with mine and see what is different (and therefore what I messed up!). :)

Sure thing. Also I hope you are prepared to take responsibility because seeing how you animate windows I've been compelled to go back and add fades and slides to some of my old programs. ;)

MilesAhead,

Our respective codes give identical results (other than some minor adjustments I have introduced to cope with Classic mode) for the positioning of the Toast when the TaskBar is visible - which you say yours is. So I am very surprised by the fact that you say that the Toasts do not appear when you run my beta code above. The only explanation I can come up with is that the _Toast_Show fuction is returning an error and so not creating the Toast - could you please check if that is the case. :)

I've done a bit more testing since the last time and still can't replicate any problem(s), so I don't believe it's your code.

I checked for error returns before going to the trouble of adding my code. It returned no errors.

I just did this:

;#include <Toast.au3>

#include <Toast_Beta.au3>

recompiled and ran it. It did not show the toast.

I always have AutoHide disabled. Maybe that's the difference?

edit: just uncommented <Toast.au3> with my changes and recompiled. It shows. Don't know what else to tell you.

edit2: It's been my experience that it doesn't matter if Taskbar is showing or not showing. If AutoHide is enabled, the system ignores the Work Area. That's why on all my utilities that place Explorer windows leaving a gap for the taskbar, rocketdock, whatever, I note that AutoHide must be disabled. I tried getting change notifications etc.. Just doesn't work. The only change notification you can count on is screen res change.

I'm using Windows Seven. Perhaps you are on XP?

MilesAhead,

I always have AutoHide disabled

Clutching at straws here, but....

Do you mean that you have the "Auto-hide the taskbar" checkbox in the Taskbar properties dialog unchecked - or do you do something more complex? :)

And could you please post the complete script you are using. Rest assured I do not disbelieve your results at all, but perhaps I can see something there that might give me a clue. ;)

I just mean the AutoHide the Taskbar is never checked. Also I use a double height Taskbar if that makes a difference. (As I mentioned before, I use a program to set the work area to make room for RocketDock, but I didn't employ that when testing moving the taskbar to top, left, right, bottom. I just let the system set the work area.)

btw when I do my delay routine, I check that the Toast handle is created. If not, I just show a tooltip delay for the tray icon. It's not showing the tooltip delay. So that makes me think the window is off screen. But here's Toast with my mods:

; RunInTrayMod - modified version of RunInTray utility found here:
; http://www.cellsworth.com/news/computer-related/35-uncategorizied/96-runintray.html
;
; The main modification to RunInTray is on detection of the window.
; A handle is obtained and used in Hide Show and Close operations.
; This way the client may change window caption and still respond
; to Hide, Show, and Close commands.
;
; Also Close is used instead of Kill to close the client app.

Unfortunately it starts getting like C with all the includes. :)

MilesAhead,

Thanks for all that - I will have a play with it and see what I get. :)

Ok. I tried to attach a shortcut for notepad to start with 5 second delay to make it easy to test RunInTrayMod but it wants to upload the exe file pointed to instead. Grrr!!

Anyway, Notepad may be easiest to try with delay.

MilesAhead,

I have compiled and run the code you posted using the original Toast UDF, my beta code from above and the modded code you posted - adjusting the work area from time to time with the code you posted earlier to simulate the presence of your RocketDock toolbar. In all cases the Toast was visible - and when I used your modded code or my beta with a reset work area, the Toast appeared some distance above the Taskbar respecting the new work area settings. :)

So I am now completely at a loss as to why my beta code does not work for you. As far as I can tell the location coordinates are the same (other than minor adjustments made in the different versions - e.g. you keep the Toast on the screen edge while I place it 10 pixels in) and we both respect the work area settings. I will have another look later today after I have had a chance to think about the problem while driving to and from the airport with my daughter - but do not hold your breath! ;)
