Gui Form docking not working right?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello :graduated:

I'm making a GUI with Koda and so far so good but I have one problem, when _I run it, the gui isn't docked where I told it to..

This is the code generated by Koda:

#include <Misc.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

if _Singleton("Car Town Bot",1) = 0 Then
    Msgbox(0,"Warning","*** **** *** is already running!")
    Exit
EndIf

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKTOP)
#Region ### START GUI section ###
$Form1 = GUICreate("************t! v 2.5b", 448, 100, 0, 0)
$MenuItem1 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&Main")
$MenuItem2 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Startup", $MenuItem1)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Startup")
$MenuItem3 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Exit F10", $MenuItem1)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Terminate")
$MenuItem4 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&Jobs")
$MenuItem6 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("***********e F6", $MenuItem4)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "JobDice")
$MenuItem7 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("************ F7", $MenuItem4)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "JobOil")
$MenuItem5 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&*****e F8")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "**********")
$MenuItem8 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&Pause F9"&@TAB&"F9")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Pause")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Terminate")
$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(112, 24, 329, 33)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Progress:", 112, 0, 48, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Status :", 0, 0, 40, 17)
$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" Stand By.", 0, 24, 100, 33)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 800, 0, "Comic Sans MS")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)
Dim $Form1_AccelTable[1][2] = [["{F9}", $MenuItem8]]
GUISetAccelerators($Form1_AccelTable)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END GUI section ###

What exactly am I doing wrong here?

EDIT: it was supposed to be docked in the top right corner of the screen, and it starts in the top left, and about 5pixels off the screen, that is, not even docked anywhere I think. . .

EDIT2: Nevermind, ended up setting the form position by hand, even if it isn't fixed.

DaRkf0x,

What exactly am I doing wrong here?

Opt("GUIResizeMode") works on the controls within the GUI, not the GUI itself. As you discovered, you can only locate the GUI by using the location parameters in GUICreate or by a subsequent WinMove. :graduated:

To help you locate the right and bottom corners of the screen when positioning your GUI, remember that AutoIt gives you the @DesktopWidth and @DesktopHeight macros. :(

Thanks :graduated:

Yeah I ended up setting the start coordinates by hand, which was no big deal anyway.

What I would like to know now is how do I make it fixed in that position, so as one cannot move it anywhere :(

DaRkf0x,

how do I make it fixed in that position, so as one cannot move it anywhere?

Easy! :(

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Const $SC_MOVE = 0xF010

$hGUI_Move  = GUICreate("Movable GUI", 500, 500, 100, 100)
GUISetState()

$hGUI_Static = GUICreate("Immovable GUI", 500, 500, 200, 200)
GUISetState()

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SYSCOMMAND, "WM_SYSCOMMAND")

While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
WEnd

Func WM_SYSCOMMAND($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    If $hWnd = $hGUI_Static Then
        If BitAND($wParam, 0x0000FFF0) = $SC_MOVE Then Return False
    EndIf
    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc

When you know how! :graduated:
