Preserve controls aspect during gui resize

4 posts in this topic

Hi ;)

This is a simple GUI with a group and a listview controls. During a GUI resize, the controls position change, so the original window aspect becomes bad. Look at the attached image: the black boxes are what I don't want to see.

Normal:

Resized:

How to avoid this behavior? It seems that the "group" control is resized different from the other controls, as the listview in example. The resize of "group" control is the best for me, because it is pulled up to the maximum size, without empty space in the window.

I tried all the possible resize arrangements with koda designer, but with no success.

I also tried to work with WM_SIZING function but I don't know which code to write...

In the forum there are many open 3d but in the examples I've found, this problem is present. What do u think about?

lucamad,

Just add

Opt("GUIResizeMode", 102)

at the top of your script. ;)

You can use the Help file to work out why 102 is the number to use! :)

Good! Works fine...

So the number 102 is: dock left, dock right, dock top and dock bottom. Very usefull for simple GUI.

I'm making another example now, more complicated, to learn the controls resize ways.

Draw near to real-world examples! Would you help me? :)

In this new example, I'm not able to control some controls resizing options. In particular:

- the $buttonselectFolder should remain close to textbox ($txtFolder) during resize

- the $input2 textbox moves away from $labelTest during resize

- the treeview and listview move away from each other during resize, generating empty space.

Is there a solution?

Thanks Melba!

lucamad,

Is there a solution?

Quite possibly - but I use resizing code very little in my own scripts so I cannot offer much more help. :)

If you put Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKAUTO) at the top of your script and remove all the GUICtrlSetResizing lines, the reult is not too bad - you get the relative positions maintained, but the sizes alter. Is that any better? ;)
