How to put in image in an iframe in a GUI, but with no frame?

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, what I'm wanting to do is a little complicated.

An Image I have is too big to fit in my GUI (resizing the GUI is not an option), so I need to put an image in an iframe, with a scroll bar, but at the same time, I don't want the image to LOOK like it's in an iframe, so we no borders around it. Just a scroll bar at the side.

Anyway to do this?

Thanks!

EDIT: Woot! 100th post! :mellow:

an iFrame? If you're embedding HTML then css 'border:none;' should do it I would have thought.

If its a windows control then just change the styles. WS_BORDER, WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE etc. should be removed.

Umm, I didn't know you can imbed html? I was just reffering to an iframe as an example.. I want an image to be in a frame that the user can scroll down to see the rest on the image :mellow:

You might want to try out this. I haven't tried it, so I can't give you details about implementation, but it looks like it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Iframes are an option, although you don't actually need them, you can just put an img tag in an ie object and size the object. Not sure about frames etc. but there is plenty of support for the ie udf on the forums.

Open the helpfile and go here:

User Defined Function Reference -> IE Management -> _IECreateEmbedded

As a general rule, the IE functions are very well documented and support on the forums are great (more so than other UDF's). The example under that function should get you on your way, but other functions such as _IEDocWriteHTML are also relevant.

Ok. I tried the Scrollbars UDF, and it's pretty simple stuff.

#include <GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3>

; It is possible to get the width and height dynamically using GDIPlus.au3
$sImg = "image.jpg"
$iImgW = 1680
$iImgH = 1050

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("Image", 400, 400, 100, 100)
$hImage = GUICtrlCreatePic($sImg, 0, 0, $iImgW, $iImgH)

; Generate scrollbars
_GUIScrollbars_Generate($hGUI, $iImgW, $iImgH, 0, 0, True)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case -3
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Mat,

Thanks for that - very civil of you! :mellow:

I noticed you had this is your code:

; It is possible to get the width and height dynamically using GDIPlus.au3
$sImg = "image.jpg"
$iImgW = 1680
$iImgH = 1050

The answer is "Yes" and you do it like this: :P

$sFile = "image.jpg"

_GDIPlus_Startup()

$hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($sFile)

$iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage)
$iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage)

_GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage)
_GDIPlus_Shutdown()

No problems :P I wasn't about to take all the credit for writing an example of a much bigger UDF.

I noticed you had this is your code:

; It is possible to get the width and height dynamically using GDIPlus.au3

The answer is "Yes" and you do it like this: :party:

But it wasn't a question... It was a statement :party: I knew it was possible but I couldn't be asked to try and find the snippet. Edited by Mat
