Label Align to Bottom

Recommended Posts

No style that I'm aware of to align it to the bottom but you can align the text to the vertical center with $SS_CENTERIMAGE. If you need it lower than that you will have to reposition the label a bit.

Not that I know of, but if you use the StringSize UDF in my sig, you can work out how big the text is and then position a second label at the bottom of the first - like this: :graduated:

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

$sText = "I am at the bottom"

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

; Create the label as big as you want
$hLabel_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 480, 480)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)

; Get the size of the text
$aSize = _StringSize($sText)
; Calculate the position of the second label
$iLabel_X = (480 - $aSize[2]) / 2
$iLabel_Y = 490 - $aSize[3]
; and create it
$hLabel_2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel($sText, $iLabel_X, $iLabel_Y, $aSize[2], $aSize[3])


While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Just give the labels the same background colour or make the top one transparent. :D

All clear? :(

Also, don't forget that you can add @CR like this

$g = GUICreate("")
$lb = GUICtrlCreateLabel(@crlf & @crlf & @crlf & @crlf & @crlf & @crlf & "  text at the bottom of the label",20,20,200,95)

Here is an example of a function using ControlGetPos() and ControlMove() to align the bottom of controls.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Local $hGui, $widthCell, $heightCell, $msg, $Input1, $lab2, $lab3, $lab4, $lab5

$hGui = GUICreate("Bottom Alignment", 400, 200)

$widthCell = 80
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Column 1"                                     , 10                    , 30     , $widthCell)
$lab2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Column 2" & @CRLF & "Row 2"                     , 10 + $widthCell       , 30 - 20)
$lab3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Column 3" & @CRLF & "Row 2" & @CRLF & "Row 3"   , 10 + $widthCell * 2   , 30 + 20)
$lab4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Column 4" & @CRLF & "Row 2"                     , 10 + $widthCell * 3   , 30)
$lab5 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Column 5"                                       , 10 + $widthCell * 4   , 30 + 70)


MsgBox(0, "Before Bottom alignment", "Press OK to continue to bottom align the controls")

Local $aAlignCtrls[6] = [$hGui, $Input1, $lab2, $lab3, $lab4, $lab5]

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

; ========================== _AlignCtrlBottom =============================
; Description: Will align the bottom of all specified GUI controls to the bottom of the tallest control box.
; Parameter:
; $aAlignCtrls - An array containing $aAlignCtrls[0] as the handle of the GUI (window) in which the controls preside; and,
;               $aAlignCtrls[1...n], contains the identifiers (controlIDs) of the controls to be bottom aligned.
Func _AlignCtrlBottom($aAlignCtrls)
    Local $aPos, $iMax, $iBottom
    $aPos = ControlGetPos($aAlignCtrls[0], "", $aAlignCtrls[1])

    ; Determine bottom alignment value.
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aAlignCtrls) - 1
        $aPos = ControlGetPos($aAlignCtrls[0], "", $aAlignCtrls[$i])
        If $aPos[3] > $iMax Then
            $iMax = $aPos[3]
            $iBottom = $aPos[1] + $aPos[3] ; This "Y" value used to align bottom of controls.

    ; Align controls
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aAlignCtrls) - 1
        $aPos = ControlGetPos($aAlignCtrls[0], "", $aAlignCtrls[$i])
        ControlMove($aAlignCtrls[0], "", $aAlignCtrls[$i], $aPos[0], $iBottom - $aPos[3])
EndFunc   ;==>_AlignCtrlBottom
