setting the client coords of a window..

5 posts in this topic

im wondering if its possible to set the client rgn of a window so that it automatically creates a ctrl on 0,0 but not overlapping the transparent but on the colored section instead.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <string.au3>
#include <array.au3>
#include <winapi.au3>
Opt ('GUIOnEventMode',1)
$gui_w = Int (@DesktopWidth/3)
$gui_h = Int (@DesktopHeight/3)
CreateBase (@ScriptName)
While 1
    Sleep (100)
WEnd
Func _NewWindow ()
    CreateBase (@GUI_WinHandle)
EndFunc
Func CreateBase ($title)
    Local $hwnd, $WIDTH,$HEIGHT, $offset
    $offset = 5
    $hwnd = GUICreate ($title,$gui_w,$gui_h,-1,-1,$WS_POPUPWINDOW,BitOR ($WS_EX_LAYERED,$WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME))
        GUISetFont (10,10,'','Tahoma')
        GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)
        _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes ($hwnd,0xABCDEF)
        $WIDTH = _WinAPI_GetClientWidth ($hwnd)
        $HEIGHT = _WinAPI_GetClientHeight ($hwnd)
        GUISetOnEvent (-3,'_WinClose')
        GUISetState ()
            GUICtrlCreateLabel (WinGetTitle ($hwnd),0,0,$WIDTH-20,20,BitOR (0x01,0x0200),0x00100000)
            GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',0,20,$WIDTH,20,-1,0x00100000) ;top
                GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',0,40,$offset,$HEIGHT-(40+$offset),-1,0x00100000) ;left
                GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',0,$HEIGHT-$offset,$WIDTH,$offset,-1,0x00100000) ;bottom
                GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',$WIDTH-$offset,40,$offset,$HEIGHT-(40+$offset),-1,0x00100000) ;right
            GUICtrlCreateLabel ('x',$WIDTH-20,0,20,20,BitOR (0x01,0x0200))
                GUICtrlSetCursor (-1,0)
                GUICtrlSetOnEvent (-1,'_WinClose')
            GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',$offset,40,$WIDTH-($offset*2),$HEIGHT-(40+$offset))
                GUICtrlSetBkColor (-1,0x000000)
                GUICtrlSetState (-1,128)
        GUICtrlCreateButton ('Click To Clone',60,100,100,20)
        GUICtrlSetOnEvent (-1,'_NewWindow')
EndFunc
Func _WinClose ()
    Exit
EndFunc

Instead of creating a coloured label create a child window and set the colour of that. Then create your controls on the child window and 0,0 is the top left as you want.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <string.au3>
#include <array.au3>
#include <winapi.au3>
Opt ('GUIOnEventMode',1)
$gui_w = Int (@DesktopWidth/3)
$gui_h = Int (@DesktopHeight/3)
CreateBase (@ScriptName)
While 1
    Sleep (100)
WEnd
Func _NewWindow ()
    CreateBase (@GUI_WinHandle)
EndFunc
Func CreateBase ($title)
    Local $hwnd, $WIDTH,$HEIGHT, $offset
    $offset = 5
    $hwnd = GUICreate ($title,$gui_w,$gui_h,-1,-1,$WS_POPUPWINDOW,BitOR ($WS_EX_LAYERED,$WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME))
    GUISetFont (10,10,'','Tahoma')
    GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)
    _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes ($hwnd,0xABCDEF)
    $WIDTH = _WinAPI_GetClientWidth ($hwnd)
    $HEIGHT = _WinAPI_GetClientHeight ($hwnd)
    GUISetOnEvent (-3,'_WinClose')
    GUISetState ()
    GUICtrlCreateLabel (WinGetTitle ($hwnd),0,0,$WIDTH-20,20,BitOR (0x01,0x0200),0x00100000)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',0,20,$WIDTH,20,-1,0x00100000) ;top
    GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',0,40,$offset,$HEIGHT-(40+$offset),-1,0x00100000) ;left
    GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',0,$HEIGHT-$offset,$WIDTH,$offset,-1,0x00100000) ;bottom
    GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',$WIDTH-$offset,40,$offset,$HEIGHT-(40+$offset),-1,0x00100000) ;right
    GUICtrlCreateLabel ('x',$WIDTH-20,0,20,20,BitOR (0x01,0x0200))
    GUICtrlSetCursor (-1,0)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent (-1,'_WinClose')
    ;GUICtrlCreateLabel ('',$offset,40,$WIDTH-($offset*2),$HEIGHT-(40+$offset))
    ;GUICtrlSetBkColor (-1,0x000000)
                guicreate("child1",$WIDTH-($offset*2),$HEIGHT-(40+$offset),$offset,40,$WS_CHILD,-1,$hwnd)
                GUISetBkColor(0)
                GUISetState()
    ;GUICtrlSetState (-1,128)
    GUICtrlCreateButton ('Click To Clone',0,0,100,20)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent (-1,'_NewWindow')
EndFunc
Func _WinClose ()
    Exit
EndFunc

Well... the lag of MDIChild movements is really bad when its running on a slowish machine. i guess i'll have to make a child. but IS it possible? no matter how hard?

don't you need to have $WS_EX_MDICHILD to have it movable with the parent?

edit: never mind, i see your example works without that style. thanks martin, i guess ill just make a child as it seems simpler.
