activate a GUI after a few second of hover over GUI

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am trying to crate an empty GUI so that when the mouse is hovered on top of it for more than 3 sec a new menu will slide from it.

do i need to use

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "WM_NOTIFY")
can I use it with an empty GUI ? do I need a control ?

thanks,

Nadav

There are geekier ways (register and handle messages), but a simple loop that checks if your GUI is active and uses MouseGetPos() to see if the mouse is over the GUI would be much easier:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

Global $hGUI, $idButton, $f_Visible, $iTimer

$hGUI = GUICreate("", 400, 300)
$idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Click Me!", 150, 135, 100, 30)
GUISetState()
_HideStuff()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $idButton
            MsgBox(64, "Button", "You clicked the button!", 3)
    EndSwitch

    If $f_Visible Then
        If Not _CheckMouseOver() Then _HideStuff()
    Else
        If _CheckMouseOver() Then
            If $iTimer Then
                If TimerDiff($iTimer) >= 3000 Then
                    _ShowStuff()
                EndIf
            Else
                $iTimer = TimerInit()
            EndIf
        EndIf
    EndIf
WEnd

Func _CheckMouseOver()
    Local $RET = False
    If WinActive($hGUI) Then
        Local $aMousePos = MouseGetPos()
        Local $aGuiPos = WinGetPos($hGUI)
        If ($aMousePos[0] > $aGuiPos[0]) And ($aMousePos[0] < ($aGuiPos[0] + $aGuiPos[2])) And _
                ($aMousePos[1] > $aGuiPos[1]) And ($aMousePos[1] < ($aGuiPos[1] + $aGuiPos[3])) Then
            $RET = True
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Return $RET
EndFunc   ;==>_CheckMouseOver

Func _ShowStuff()
    $f_Visible = True
    $iTimer = 0
    GUICtrlSetState($idButton, $GUI_SHOW)
    GUICtrlSetState($idButton, $GUI_ENABLE)
EndFunc   ;==>_ShowStuff

Func _HideStuff()
    $f_Visible = False
    $iTimer = 0
    GUICtrlSetState($idButton, $GUI_DISABLE)
    GUICtrlSetState($idButton, $GUI_HIDE)
EndFunc   ;==>_HideStuff
