How to make Toast - New version 2 Aug 18

Recommended Posts

Sorry if I ran you around for no gain. It just doesn't show on my system. Only other thing I thought of if you are on XP it may have "stay on top" for Taskbar. I hardly boot XP anymore. On W7 if you don't AutoHide it assumes Stay on Top I think. One of those mysteries. In any case, thanks for the toast. I don't know how to explain the discrepancy.

MilesAhead,

No need to apologise - always happy to look into one of my UDFs which does not appear to work correctly. And at least I can sleep easily at night knowing that you have a modified version which does work for you - no risk of you going Toastless! ;)

I got no further after the trip to and from the airport. If you ever resolve the problem, please let me know - I hate mysteries. :)

[NEW VERSION] - 31 Dec 11

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 - even if the latter had to write his own modified code! ;)

New UDF below and in the first post. :)

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think I've worked out the issue MilesAhead is having, what version are you using of AutoIt? Because I've looked through the previous posts and I can't see any mention of it. The issue I believe to be the problem is this >>

Melba23:

$tWorkArea = DllStructCreate("struct;long Left;long Top;long Right;long Bottom;endstruct"); Only works in the latest version of AutoIt, but it's the correct approach for the latest version.

MilesAhead:

$tWorkArea = DllStructCreate($tagRECT) ;  Not dependent on any version as it's using a constant included with that particular version.

I had an old copy of V3.3.6.1 on my old XP machine and this is how I came across the issue, if I substitute Melba's structure with $tagRECT then it works as expected.

guinness,

I just booted up a 3.3.6.1 system and confirmed your diagnosis - all my work on this UDF lately has been with the then-current beta or 3.3.8.0. I think you have it again - are you looking for a second career as a detective? ;)

I have amended the _Toast_Locate function in the UDF to check for the AutoIt version and use the relevant struct string. For me it now works with 3.3.6.1 and 3.3.8.0 - can you please confirm? :)

That workaround works fine. How I found the problem was pretty quick but pure chance that I happened to test on an old version of AutoIt. I think it's a good lesson to learn, if you have a problem always specify the system details and version of AutoIt you're using. :)

[NEW VERSION] - 31 Dec 11 - version 2

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! ;)

New UDF in the first post. :)

Hi. I just tried out the new code. The bottom line of the toast looks correct. But the right edge is about 10 pixels removed from the right edge of the screen when the Taskbar is on the bottom. Looking through the 2 files I see on my changes I changed "$aToast_Data[0] = @DesktopWidth - $iToast_Width - 10" to "$aToast_Data[0] = @DesktopWidth - $iToast_Width" and similar adjustments for the various positions.

Don't know why there's a difference. But anyway, looks like you found the issue. :)

edit: I'm updating to latest AutoIt. Tried the compile again. Got the same issue with the 10 pixel gap. I'm using the 'x' in the corner of toast. Maybe that's related to it.

Basically now I'm chasing down all calls to Int() that check for @error generally. That should keep me busy for the holiday. ;)

MilesAhead,

the right edge is about 10 pixels removed from the right edge of the screen when the Taskbar is on the bottom

That is by design - if you want to get it "Close to the Edge" (great album that :)) then you need to adjust the coordinates as you did before.

Delighted we, or rather guinness, got to the bottom of it. Happy New Year! ;)

Hi Melba23,

a very useful script with many options.

Is it possible to include a function to use "Yes" and "No" buttons?

Thanks

Dizzy,

Sorry, no. :)

If you want that level of user interaction, take a look at my ExtMsgBox UDF. ;)

Edit: I just remembered that I have already shown how to add buttons to a Toast here. So you should have read the thread more carefully and I should have recalled it sooner - about 15-all I would say! :D

I hate it when that happens. It's like sometimes I'm searching trying different terms, not having much luck. Then I finally get a hit that looks relevant and it turns out to be one of my own posts from 6 months ago when I knew less about the subject than I do now!!

btw you a tennis fan? Australian Open should be cranking up in a few weeks :)

I am trying to put up a toast and leave it there until something happens. Is this possible?

Here is what currently have

do
_Toast_Show(48, "test", "test")
until FileExists("C:test.txt")

this works however the toast keeps going show / hide. Is there a way to detect if toast is in the show state?

EDIT: I was able to do something similar using tooltips

do
if not WinGetHandle ("This is a Test") Then ToolTip("This is a Test","","","Test")
until FileExists("C:test.txt")

myk3,

No need to use _Toast_Show in the loop: ;)

#include <Toast.au3>

; Show the Toast - the default delay of 0 means it stays out until you retract it
_Toast_Show(0, "Title", "Text")

; Now wait for your file to appear
Do
    Sleep(10)
Until FileExists("C:test.txt")

; And hide the Toast when it does
_Toast_Hide()

All clear? :)
