wakillon,

What @error value do you get returned? If I increase the font size too much I get @error = 5 which means that the max width of the EMB is too small to contain the longest word of the string - in this case the URL. :)

The solution - increase the absolute max size ($iMsg_Width_abs) of the EMB by changing this line:

Local $iMsg_Width_max = 370, $iMsg_Width_min = 150, $iMsg_Width_abs = 500

If I set that value to 800, I can increase the size of the font to 24 without problem - although you may then want to keep the default font for the buttons as it overflows quite a lot! ;)

I set $iMsg_Width_abs to 800 without result...

I get not @error value, in fact i get nothing, it run and i wait....but nothing happens, i must close the script manually...

if i set fontsize to 9 it works, but not to 10,11 or 12.

Have you tried my last post script ? did it works for you ? Posted Image

wakillon,

I used exactly what you posted and it works perfectly IF the URL fits into the EMB at the required font size (It works for 16, not 18). ;)

Are you saying that you get no return AT ALL from the _ExtMsgBox call - not even an @error? :idiot:

What return do you get from the _ExtMsgBoxSet call (not that I believe that is part of the problem)? :)

wakillon,

Run this and see if what you get returned matches the input: :)

#include <ExtMsgBox.au3>

_ExtMsgBoxSet ( 3, 0, 0xFFFF00, 0xFF0000, 12, "MS Sans Serif" )

ConsoleWrite( _
            "Style: " & $iEMB_Style & @CRLF &  _
            "Just:  " & $iEMB_Just & @CRLF &  _
            "BkCol: " & "0x" & Hex($iEMB_BkCol, 6) & @CRLF &  _
            "Col:   " & "0x" & Hex($iEMB_Col, 6) & @CRLF &  _
            "Name:  " & $sEMB_Font_Name & @CRLF &  _
            "Size:  " & $iEMB_Font_Size & @CRLF)

I get this :

Style: 3

Just: 0

BkCol: 0xFFFF00

Col: 0xFF0000

Name: MS Sans Serif

Size: 12

+>18:02:40 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0

>Exit code: 0 Time: 1.619

I have tried like this ( supressing the url line ) with a fontsize to 12 and it works !

#include <ExtMsgBox.au3>

$_YoutubeUrl = 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPBwXKgDTdE'
_ExtMsgBoxSet ( 3, 0, 0xFFFF00, 0xFF0000, 12, "MS Sans Serif" )
;$sMsg = $_YoutubeUrl & @CRLF
$sMsg = "Do you want download it ?"
$iRetValue = _ExtMsgBox ( 128, "Yes|No", "Match !", $sMsg, 10 )
ConsoleWrite ( "$iRetValue : " & $iRetValue & @CRLF )

I don't understand...

wakillon,

Try reducing the length of the URL code and see if it works then. :)

wakillon,

It is normal that the EMB does not display if the text cannot fit into the preset max width. The last update added an absolute max width and allowed the size to increase up to that value if needed to fit long strings.

What is not normal is that absolutely nothing happens and the script hangs. When I set too large a font size I got the expected @error = 5 return, so I am at a loss as to why you do not. :)

All I can suggest now is trying the same code, gradually increasing the length of the URL and see if it returns the expected error or hangs when the string gets too long. ;)

My url is not so long, even with a fontsize of 12.

To be sure it's not my PC the cause of the hangs, i have tried with another computer on XP SP3 too and...

It hangs too !

If i reduce the url or reduce the fontsize to 9, it works.Posted Image

it's boring...

wakillon,

I have just run the exact script you posted on an XP SP3 machine and it works as I expected: OK until the font size gets over 16 and then @error = 5 - no hangs at all. So I am completely baffled - I cannot reproduce your symptoms so I cannot really offer any more help. ;)

Perhaps the UDF does not like the garlic in your French OS? :) Although we eat so much of it at my table I am sure my machine is completely impregnated too! :idiot:

wakillon,

Try putting Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1) at the top of the script and run it. The icon tool tip should then give us a clue as to where it is hanging. :)

Thanks a lot Melba !

your idea permit me to see that it was "stringsize.au3" causing problem !

script was blocked to line 155, that's why there was no return !

Posted Image

I update my stringsize.au3 and retry succesfully with fontsize 24 ! Posted Image

If you look in the ExtMsgBox.au3 file for this line:

Local $hMsgGUI = GUICreate($sTitle, $iMsg_Width, $iMsg_Height, $iHpos, $iVPos, BitOR(0x80880000, 0x00C00000), $iExtStyle, $iParent_Win)

You can change $iVPos, BitOR(0x80880000, 0x00C00000), $iExtStyle, to this, $iVPos, 0x80000000, $iExtStyle,. This will create the GUI as a pop up window; no title bar, no sysmenu, no taskbar icon, no frame. That's one way of doing it.

thanks BrewManNH for the line, i tried this BitOR(0x80000000, 0x00C00000) just what i need , i'm confused a window has so much styles :unsure: Edited by lhw

Nice UDF.

I've only just noticed your UDF and haven't started using it yet. But I wanted to let you know what I've found. I will start using your "ExMsgBox.au3" it in my code and expect it to be very useful.

Something I've run into with trying to use Tab Characters in strings. I've seen that StringSize doesn't report line lengths correctly on the following:

If the line with the Tab shows longer (not same as length of its string) then the other lines w/o tabs the msgbox doesn't display all the text.

I figure StringLen correctly reports the length of the the string and just counts the Tab Character as one Charater. but not the length with the Tabs expanded. Now I have to admit this is just a guess, but by playing with my own MsgBox I found that in the line with Tab Characters I expanded the Tab Character to spaces before calling the StringLen everything looked fine.

To show you what I mean I've added the following to your "ExtMsgBox Example.au3" in the "Test 2" section before the first tab string:

$sMsg &= @TAB & @TAB & "A line long enough not to scroll" & @CRLF

which then looks like:

Case $hButton2

            ; Hide the main GUI to centre the message box on screen
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hTest_GUI)

            ; Change font and justification, leaving colours unchanged
            _ExtMsgBoxSet(5, $SS_LEFT, -1, -1, 12, "Arial")

            $sMsg = "As 'EMB Test' is hidden, this is centred on screen" & @CRLF & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= "It has:" & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= @TAB & @TAB & "A line long enough not to scroll" & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= @TAB & "An Info icon," & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= @TAB & "1 offset button"  & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= @TAB & "Left justified text," & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= @TAB & "Default button text," & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= @TAB & "No Taskbar button and " & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= @TAB & "TOPMOST set" & @CRLF& @CRLF
            $sMsg &= "The width is set by the maximum line length" & @CRLF & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= "(which is less than max message box width)" & @CRLF & @CRLF
            $sMsg &= "It will time out in 20 seconds"

            ; Use $MB_ constants and set timeout value
            $iRetValue = _ExtMsgBox ($MB_ICONASTERISK, "Default Font", "Test 2", $sMsg, 20, $hTest_GUI)
            ConsoleWrite("Test 2 returned: " & $iRetValue & @CRLF)

            ; Reset to default
            _ExtMsgBoxSet(Default)

            ; Show the main GUI again
            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hTest_GUI)
            WinSetOnTop($hTest_GUI, "", 1)
            WinSetOnTop($hTest_GUI, "", 0)

When I click on "Test 2" On my computer (WinXP SP3) I don't see all the text in the msgbox.

The only way I could get around this was with my own MsgBox (using your StringSize) and expanding the Tab character for each line. This is lifted out of my own "MyMsgBox.au3" Code (which can do very little compared to yours). I haven't tried it in yours yet.

Func StringTabSpace($str)
    Local $i,$s,$chr
    Local $ai,$array
    Local $len,$pos
    Local $f,$t

    $s = StringStripCR($str)
    $array = StringSplit($s,@LF)

    For $ai = 1 to $array[0]
        $s = ""
        $len = StringLen($array[$ai])
        $pos = 1
        For $i = 1 to $len
            $chr = StringLeft($array[$ai],1)
            $array[$ai] = StringTrimLeft($array[$ai],1)
            If $chr = @TAB Then
                For $f = Mod($pos,8) to 8
;                   ConsoleWrite("f=["&$f&"]" & @CRLF)
                    $s &= " "
                    $pos += 1
                Next
            Else
                $s &= $chr
                $pos += 1
            EndIf
        Next
        $array[$ai] = $s
    Next
;   _ArrayDisplay($array,"array")
    $s = ""
    For $ai = 1 to $array[0]
        $s &= $array[$ai] & @LF
    Next
    $s = StringTrimRight($s,1)

    Return $s
EndFunc

I can already see that this works fine with my simple left justified MsgBox's, but not sure how to implement it with all the formats yours can handle.

Thanks for all your hard work,

Joe
