Is there a way to set the minimum size of a gui? I want it to be resizeable, but if it get too small the gui won't allow you to make it smaller.

Is there a way to set the minimum size of a gui? I want it to be resizeable, but if it get too small the gui won't allow you to make it smaller.

Try:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)
Dim $MinW = 150, $MinH = 150, $size
MySize()
Func MySize()
    Local $msg
    GUICreate("My GUI", $MinW, $MinH, 50, 50, $WS_SIZEBOX)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
        $size = WinGetPos("My GUI")
        If $size[2] < $MinW Then WinMove("My GUI", "", $size[0], $size[1], $MinW, $size[3])
        If $size[3] < $MinH Then WinMove("My GUI", "", $size[0], $size[1], $size[2], $MinH)
    WEnd
    GUIDelete()
EndFunc   ;==>MySize

scriptomator,

Another way: :x

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

Global $GUIMINWID = 300, $GUIMINHT = 100 ; set your restrictions here
Global $GUIMAXWID = 800, $GUIMAXHT = 500

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_GETMINMAXINFO, "WM_GETMINMAXINFO")

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX))

GUISetState()

$aPos = WinGetPos($hGUI)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE
            WinMove($hGUI, "", $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $aPos[2], $aPos[3]) ; resets intial size
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func WM_GETMINMAXINFO($hwnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    $tagMaxinfo = DllStructCreate("int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int", $lParam)
    DllStructSetData($tagMaxinfo, 7, $GUIMINWID) ; min X
    DllStructSetData($tagMaxinfo, 8, $GUIMINHT) ; min Y
    DllStructSetData($tagMaxinfo, 9, $GUIMAXWID ); max X
    DllStructSetData($tagMaxinfo, 10, $GUIMAXHT ) ; max Y
    Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>WM_GETMINMAXINFO

If you are not used to coding with GUIRegisterMsg, I recommend the GUIRegisterMsg tutorial in the Wiki. :P

G sorry if my script did not work for you because it is working for me!

The only differance is I did not set a Maximum because that was not required at the time of the request. :x
