GUIPager.au3

Recommended Posts

This control is useful in situations where a window does not have enough area to display a child window. For example, if your application has a toolbar that is not wide enough to show all of its items, you can assign the toolbar to a pager control and users will be able to scroll to the left or right to access all of the items. You can also create pager controls that scroll vertically.

Thanks Guys :mellow:

The one thing I did forget is to add an example of handling the PGN_CALCSIZE notification manually. I'll do that today.

Nice job. But why not written _GUICtrlPager_Destroy() function? Anyways, 5* from me for a really useful UDF.

Completely missed that one out :mellow:

Another thing is that I have no idea how to make the function work for external applications.

Yes, I didn't mention that at the top, but GEOSoft was very helpful in making the _GUICtrlPager_Create function, and he also got a lot of help from SmOke_N for the same. :mellow:

Is it just for toolbars?

No... Although I have not done it with other controls yet, it should work with any window.

I will do that as well. :mellow:

Updated.

Added: _GUICtrlPager_Destroy

Removed: Random Mercury.xcf from the planets example :mellow:

Edit: Interesting that we already have an attempt at doing something similar with GDI+ here.

Very exciting script.

Does it support automatically resizing? (Forgive me if the question is stupid. I AM STUPID :mellow: )

As in... GUICtrlSetResizing?? No. You will have to process the WM_SIZE message yourself.

Thank you. I thought so but was hoping it not to be so.

Thank you. I thought so but was hoping it notk to be so.

Its the same for all non-autoit controls.

this is a very simple example:

#include <GuiRichEdit.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $hGui, $hRichEdit

Main()

Func Main()
    $hGui = GUICreate("Example WM_SIZE", 320, 350, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_SIZEBOX))
    $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "This is a test.", 10, 10, 300, 330)

    GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, "WM_SIZE")
    GUISetState()

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case -3
                _GUICtrlRichEdit_Destroy($hRichEdit)
                Exit
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Main

Func WM_SIZE($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam
    Local $aPos = WinGetClientSize($hGui)
    ControlMove($hGui, "", $hRichEdit, 10, 10, $aPos[0] - 20, $aPos[1] - 20)
EndFunc

Thank you, Mat.

I had have some problems with WM_NOTIFY (for a listview item) few days ago and wasted almost 2 hours to find what I did wrong. Got it in the end but for a noob like me it wasn't easy. So I started to kinda fear GuiregisterMsg() . Anyway this one seems easy and working.

This one is easy because I didn't use any of the parameters, so all its doing is waiting for the message... I did do it the more complex way though, completely overlooking the inbuilt autoit method:

#include <GuiRichEdit.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $hGui, $hRichEdit

Main()

Func Main()
    $hGui = GUICreate("Example WM_SIZE", 320, 350, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_SIZEBOX))
    $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "This is a test.", 10, 10, 300, 330)

    GUISetState()

    Local $aPos
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case -3
                _GUICtrlRichEdit_Destroy($hRichEdit)
                Exit
            Case $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED
                $aPos = WinGetClientSize($hGui)
                ControlMove($hGui, "", $hRichEdit, 10, 10, $aPos[0] - 20, $aPos[1] - 20)
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Main

Thats much easier!!!

Thanks for this UDF.

I change this a litle 

#include <UDFGlobalID.au3>

instead

#include "UDFGlobalID.au3"

and it works with AutoIt 3.3.10.2, but not working with AutoIt 3.3.13.18

this is because __UDF_ValidateClassName was removed from UDFGlobalID.au3

but Why ?
