_ChangeScreenResEx

Recommended Posts

zeffy

It works fine when I use

_ChangeScreenResEx(1, 800, 600)

but it sets @error to 1, and doesnt do anything. If I use

_ChangeScreenResEx(1, 1366, 768)

which is my default screen resolution, can someone help me with this?

Thanks, Zef.

Difficult to help because I have no idea what _ChangeScreenResEx is so you need to either show us the code or at least give a link. Then maybe tell us what OS you are using.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

Oh, sorry I posted this thread really early in the morning, here's the code.

; Function Name:    _ChangeScreenResEx()
; Description:    Changes the current screen geometry, colour and refresh rate.
; Version:        1.0.0.0
; Parameter(s):  $i_DisplayNum - Display to change, starting at 1
;                  $i_Width - Width of the desktop screen in pixels. (horizontal resolution)
;                  $i_Height - Height of the desktop screen in pixels. (vertical resolution)
;                   $i_BitsPP - Depth of the desktop screen in bits per pixel.
;                   $i_RefreshRate - Refresh rate of the desktop screen in hertz.
; Requirement(s):   AutoIt Beta > 3.1
; Return Value(s):  On Success - Screen is adjusted, @ERROR = 0

DLLcaling not my thing, but ...

There are two SetError() in that code. And both set it to 1.

Change the first one to SetError(91) and the lower one to SetError(92). Than rerun you code. And report back the error value you got that time.

Might narrow it down a bit.

---

Change the first to SetError(91,@extended), and include the extended value to in case you got a 91 error.

Thanks for replying, I did what you said, and @error returned 92

92. ok

Looking at MSDN:ChangeDisplaySettingsEx, section: Return Value.

There it lists the possible return states.

By changing SetError(92) to SetError(92,$B) you can get the value that was actually returned by the dllcall. (as @extended value)

And that value can be used to Identity the failure reason ... one problem though.

This UDF Code only contains 2 of the possible 7 returned states. And I don't know where or how to find those others.

Post that value and hopefully someone else might tell you which on that is.

$B = -2

Public Const DISP_CHANGE_SUCCESSFUL = 0

Public Const DISP_CHANGE_RESTART = 1

Public Const DISP_CHANGE_FAILED = -1

Public Const DISP_CHANGE_BADMODE = -2 -> The graphics mode is not supported.

Public Const DISP_CHANGE_NOTUPDATED = -3

Public Const DISP_CHANGE_BADFLAGS = -4

Public Const DISP_CHANGE_BADPARAM = -5

Ps: I'm off.

:idea: well, that's disappointing, i had another idea to do the same thing. Thanks for the help.
