There is an error with changing font size:

#include <StringSize.au3>

$String='Long string, very very long'
$a=_StringSize($String, 18)

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", $a[2], $a[3])
GUISetFont(18)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel($a[0], 0, 0, $a[2], $a[3])
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Solve:

GuiSetFont doesn't accept keyword Default for Fontname, there needs empty string "".

Corrected UDF code:

xrewndel,

Thank you for that. ;)

I have amended the code in the first post to correct the error - although I have not done it quite as you suggested. :)

kickarse.

Glad you like it. :x

Is there any way to add an option for max height?

Not as such, but as the UDF calculates the height of a line and the overall string when wrapped, I can see several ways to code a wrapper which deals with heights (see llewxam's posts above for an example).

Could you be a bit more specific about what you want to do? I can then see how we might go about it. :P

I imagine (As with message boxes and such) that there is a maximum height that you want. Beyond that, it should report an error or use scrollbars etc. etc.

Using MsgBox with a ridiculously large string results in you not being able to move the window. That's not good.

Mat,

The UDF returns the height of the rectangle needed to hold the string for a given width, so I fully intend to leave it to the coder to decide whether that value is too great and that they should look at other ways of displaying the mass of text. For example, use a large scrolling label within in a child GUI - or just dump the text in an edit control and let Windows sort out the scrollbars. :shifty:

I have a number of ideas as to why the OP might want to limit the height, but I am unwilling to expend any of my little grey cells developing solutions until I know exactly what he wants. If it is to have the rectangle with a height as close as possible to a defined value, then the problem is trivial - if the height value must be more exact, then life gets a little more complicated as we are probably looking at adjusting font sizes to fit. :P

Anyway, when the OP lets me know his desiderata, I am sure something can be done to satisfy them. :x

I seem to be having trouble with this.

I am using it in my Weather program and currently its not fitting.

Here is the script I am running, I have OverViewStatus[1] set to not change at the moment for testing, and its not fitting in the GUI. You will need the WeatherUDF, which is provided at the bottom. Thanks in advance :unsure:

(The StringSizing starts at line 42 and ends at 44)

Damein,

You are setting the font size for all controls in your GUI to 13 with this:

GuiSetFont(13)

so you need to reflect that in the _StringSize function. You also need to set the maximum width that you will accept - in this case the width of your GUI. Your function call should therefore look like this:

$String = _StringSize($OverViewStatus[1], 13, Default, Default, "", 150)

This gives me a required label height ($String[3]) of 50 if I use "Mostly Cloudy / Windy" as the value.

Now comes your next problem - if you use this depth for the label it overlaps with the next label down. You could manage that by calculating the label heights first and then sizing the GUI as required and positioning the labels to fit. Or you could use the _StringSize function to calculate the font size needed to fit the string into a single line. Your choice. :unsure:

All clear? Please ask again if not. :>

Alright, I think I got it now but now that I do I think its not what I was thinking it was x.X

I was under the impression this UDF would create a label out of the text provided to fit 100% always. If true, I guess I'm still doing something wrong because thats not happening.

Damein,

this UDF would create a label out of the text provided to fit 100% always

It does, but you have to give the correct parameters to do its work. :>

In particular the size, atrributes, weight and name of the font and the maximum width it can use. :unsure:

Remember that AutoIt cannot read your mind - you have to tell it what it is supposed to do! ;)

Hi Melba23,

I copied the UDF from what Damein posted and saved it as StringSize.au3 because I want to try your ExtMsgBox.au3

I get the following error when I do a SyntaxCheckProd:

+>10:48:27 Starting AutoIt3Wrapper v.2.0.1.24 Environment(Language:0409 Keyboard:00000409 OS:WIN_XP/Service Pack 3 CPU:X86 OS:X86)

>Running AU3Check (1.54.19.0) from:C:\Program Files\AutoIt3

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\ExtMsgBox.au3(281,139) : ERROR: StringSize(): undefined function.

Local $aLabel_Pos = StringSize($sText, $iEMB_Font_Size, Default, Default, $sEMB_Font_Name, $iMsg_Width_max - 20 - $iIcon_Reduction)

Could it be the UDF I copied is not correct?

Where can I get your original Stringsize.au3?

Thanks.

Damien's post isn't the StringSize UDF, it's his own for his project. The StringSize UDF is in the first post in this thread, as they all usually are in the Example Scripts section.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

New version - 16 Aug 11

New:

New method to get the required font into the Display Context for sizing via GetTextExtentPoint32W. Default code (by trancexx :) ) or you can add the handle of your GUI to use that font directly.

The UDF did not correctly recognise TAB characters and so undersized lines containing them. Adding 1 to the $iAttrib paramter will expand tabs to "XXXXXXXX" before sizing the text - they are replaced before the text is returned. This might mean that the returned size is slightly too wide, but at least the line will fit! See the ExtMsgBox thread for an example showing this.

Changed:

One or two minor code changes (improvements I hope!).

Note that that these are non-scriptbreaking changes - unless you need to expand tabs you use StringSize just as before. I realise the use of $iAttrib to pass the "expand tab" is less that ideal, but it does prevent using another parameter. :)

New UDF and new examples in first post. :mellow:

GetTextExtentPoint32W has been there since the early days of this UDF as it is is the only reliable way to size the text. The new code is that which determines the Device Context and the Font Handle (lines 84-117). :mellow:

Apologies, seems I wasn't paying attention. :mellow:

I'm working on a script that needs to get StringSize in order to set the size of a .jpg being created from a text variable ( my post is: ) and in my post someone pointed me to your StringSize post. It looks like it has the potential to help me with my problem, but I'm not sure how to calculate a maximum width with your StringSize script when my code is attempting to put my text output into a single line and base the width of that single line (no wrapping) on the pixel width of my text variable (Arial font set to size 600). Is there any way you could take a look at my code and let me know how (if possible) I could use your StringSize to give me the width variable I need to set in my .jpg output? I'd post my script here but I don’t want to spam your post with my script. You can see my post under

Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

TBWalker

that's really a nice job , I didn't think I would get all these stumbles in my second day of scripting with autoIt , I'm having a problem of formatting the labels , it was partially solved when I used your UDF , but still get an error :

UICtrlCreateLabel($aSize[0], 40, 50+$height, $aSize[2], $aSize[3])
GUICtrlCreateLabel($aSize^ ERROR

the problem occurs when I try to create a label with the text resulting from clipget() , it results only when the clipget() has text with CRLF

i.e: trying to Ctrl+C 2 lines of code , and creating a label with that value results in the error written above

aurm,

Sorry for the delay in replying - I have been away for a few days. :)

The UDF works fine for me with strings containing @CRLF - even when they are returned from ClipGet. From where are you copying the text? Perhaps you are getting some additional characters in the string which are confusing the GetTextExtentPoint32W algorithm. ;)

Could you please try a clip content which causes you a problem with this script and see what errors are returned - perhaps that will let us see what is going on. :D

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StringSize.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run", 10, 10, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cButton
            $sData = ClipGet()
            $aRet = _StringSize($sData)
            If @error Then
                ConsoleWrite(@error & " - " & @extended & @CRLF)
            Else
                ConsoleWrite($aRet[0] & @CRLF)
            EndIf


    EndSwitch

WEnd
