IE Control does not resize correctly

4 posts in this topic

I have the following small bit of code that I've been using for quite a while.

My problem is that the IE control doesn't seem to resize properly (or initially).

I've had to introduce the offsets below (-2 and -56) to get a proper display.

Then, when I resize the form, the bottom doesn't seem to grow correctly.

It's always off by a small bit.

What am I doing wrong.?

Thanks in advance for any help.

_IEErrorHandlerRegister()

Global $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()

Global $InitialWidth = 640

Global $InitialWidth = 480

Global $formMain = GUICreate($gAppName, $InitialWidth, $InitialHeight, _

@DesktopWidth / 2 - $InitialWidth / 2, @DesktopHeight / 2 - $InitialHeight / 2, _

$WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN + $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS + $WS_MINIMIZEBOX _

+ $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX + $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)

Global $GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, $InitialWidth - 2, $InitialHeight - 56)

GUICtrlSetResizing($oIE, $GUI_DOCKBORDERS) ; 1= Dock All Sides (same as 102)

First, welcome to the forums :D

I think you want to set the resizing on $GUIActiveX , not on $oIE.

Also, when posting code, please wrap it in [autoit ] and [/autoit ] tags (omit the space prior to each closing bracket) or press the blue button below the "Bold" button when composing your message...it makes it easier to read.

James,

Thanks for the welcome and the info. I feel like a 'tard ;-)

I still had to account for the height of the menu ribbon ($InitialHeight-48) but it resizes much, much better now :-)

I really appreciate the help. I'll try to remember to bracket my code next time.

Thanks again.

Mike

Hey, glad it helped! Thanks for showing an effort, and for listening :D

...and believe me, I've had my fair share of *duh* moments lately too :huggles: Fortunately, there's always someone around here willing to help us learn if we're willing to hear it.
