_MsgBoxCustom

18 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I had a need for a fully customizable MessageBox function that went beyond changing the text on the standard three buttons. Here's what I came up with. It should be documented well enough.

Thanks to Yashied and his Icons UDF. Parts are included (and attributed) in this UDF. Also thanks to trancexxx for her _StringSize function.

; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================
; Name...........:  _MsgBoxCustom
; Description....:  Create a custom message box.
; Syntax.........:  _MsgBoxCustom($sTitle, $sText, $aBut, $iIcon = 0, $sIcon = "", $iIndex = 0, $iOpt = 0, $iTimeout = 0, $hParent = 0, $ibWidth = 88, $ibHeight = 26)
; Parameters.....:  $sTitle     - Title of the message box
;                   $sText      - Text of the message box
;                   $aBut       - A string array of buttons
;                   $iIcon      - [Optional] Icon to display (Default = 0):

;                               | 3 - Exclamation Point
;                               | 4 - Information
;                   $sIcon      - [Optional] If $iIcon is set to 0, optional path to icon file (ico or dll, Default = "")
;                   $iIndex     - [Optional] If $sIcon is a dll, the index of the icon to use (Default = 0)
;                   $iOpt       - [Optional] BitOR'd combination of display options (Default = 0):
;                               | 1 - Always on top
;                               | 2 - Message box will have a default button.  In this case, prepend the desired button text with a single * (asterisk).
;                                     Only the last button designated with a * will be the default.
;                               | 4 - Enable the close button (X) in the dialog
;                   $iTimeout   - [Optional] Timeout in seconds before dismissing the message box (Default = 0, returns -1)
;                   $hParent    - [Optional] Handle to a parent window (Default = 0)
;                   $ibWidth            - [Optional] Width of each button (Default = 88)
;                   $ibHeight           - [Optional] Height of each button (Default = 26)
;
; Return values..:  Success - 1-based index of button pressed, -1 if timed out, 0 if closed from close button (X)
;                   Failure - 0 and sets @error

I got white background... beside that looks very good!

P.S

The closing button (and the menu items) should be disabled only when there is a "question buttons" (Yes / No).

Hmmm, what system color would that gray color be then? COLOR_3DFACE maybe?

Also I'm aware of the close button thing... but with totally free-form button control, I don't have a reliable way to programatically control that.

Ok, I see. WinXP is an all gray MsgBox background... Where does Windows pull that MsgBox main background color? COLOR_WINDOW is white on both XP and 7, and COLOR_MENU=COLOR_3DFACE (which I was using) is a shade of gray on both XP and 7. So I need one COLOR value that is gray on XP and white on 7...

Hmmm, what system color would that gray color be then? COLOR_3DFACE maybe?

Yes.

I don't have a reliable way to programatically control that

Well, you just need to check the buttons... but to be honest, this is not the most convinient way of using such function, i have one of my own functions to mimic the system message box, and it's as well written totaly with GUI, but uses almost the same flags as the original one, plus extra options.

If you want i can post it here, or send it to you via PM...

Nah, that's ok. It's a trivial functional difference. Maybe I'll add another flag to the options for it. As it stands, there's no way to properly check arbitrary button text for the same type of functionality.

Anyway, see my second post above about the colors...

Damn... this thing looks funny on XP.

See if this update looks a little better on XP. You might also try changing $fSize to 8.5 and see if it looks better. In the end, it's just gonna be a Vista / 7 style message box.

In windows xp, using _MsgBoxCustom will break the main gui icon.I tried using GUISetIcon to get it to go back, but it just leaves a blank system icon after _MsgBoxCustom runs.

I dont see this behavior in windows 7 though.

Nice messagebox except you can only use 4 lines of text. It doesn't automatic adjust :graduated:

@gr1fter

Hmm, actually I see that behavior in Windows 7 and NOT Windows XP. Odd. I remove the icon from the message box with:

DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetClassLong", "hwnd", $hGui, "int", -14, "long", 0) ; GCL_HICON
DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetClassLong", "hwnd", $hGui, "int", -34, "long", 0) ; GCL_HICONSM

But I don't see why this should affect the parent window, as I specify the correct window handle.

@FeReNGi

I can't reproduce that on either Win7 or WinXP. I tried up to 6 lines of text and it resizes correctly.

EDIT:

I guess since both GUI windows have the same window class, modifying the icon of one with SetClassLong changes both.

Is there a way to not have any buttons at all? I just want to display a message and have the dialog timeout.

Old thread I know...

But this morning I have to recompile an old script (to add recognition of @osversion = "win_10").

And this UDF in no longer compiled with 3.3.14.1 (I think I compiled last time with 3.3.10.2, maybe...).

I have this error:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\_MsgBoxCustom.au3"(235,97) : warning: $ret: declared, but not used in func.
            "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($NONCLIENTMETRICS), "uint", 0) ; 41 = SPI_GETNONCLIENTMETRICS

Any ideas ?

Au3Check is showing you warnings, though it should compile. How to fix them,  the comments are kind of obvious, do you not understand what the following means?
