Simply reposition buttons (don't resize) when resizing window

10 posts in this topic

I'm sure this is probably just a simple flag on the elements themselves, but I'm having a tough time finding what that flag would be. I'm attempting to make it so the user can resize this window, and it will stretch the listview to fit to the width of the window (minus the padding), but the buttons/datepicker, etc (the part highlighted in red) I just want to maintain the same distance from the right side without stretching. What would I need to do to accomplish this?

CGRemakes,

I always have to play about with the various resizing constants myself each time I need them, but I think these are the ones you need: :P

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

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

GUICtrlCreateButton("Refresh", 400, 10, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)

GUICtrlCreateListView("Col 1|Col 2", 10, 50, 480, 370)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBORDERS)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Refresh", 400, 430, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

And have a look at WM_GETMINMAXINFO to set the minimum re-size width and height for the GUI.

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

Global $Global_MinWidth = 250, $Global_MinHeight = 250

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

GUICtrlCreateButton("Refresh", 400, 10, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)

GUICtrlCreateListView("Col 1|Col 2", 10, 50, 480, 370)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBORDERS)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Refresh", 400, 430, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)

GUISetState()

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_GETMINMAXINFO, "WM_GETMINMAXINFO")

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func WM_GETMINMAXINFO($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
    #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam
    Local $wm_Structure = DllStructCreate("int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int", $ilParam)
    DllStructSetData($wm_Structure, 7, $Global_MinWidth)
    DllStructSetData($wm_Structure, 8, $Global_MinHeight)
    DllStructSetData($wm_Structure, 9, @DesktopWidth)
    DllStructSetData($wm_Structure, 10, @DesktopHeight)
    Return 0

Wow, almost like you read my mind! :x Thanks for the info. Everything is working GREAT, with the exception of the date pickers. The position of those just stays the same. Is there a solution to apply that effect to those fields as well? Edited by CGRemakes

CGRemakes,

We like to leave something as "an exercise for the student" in our examples! :P

GUICtrlSetResizing will work on all native AutoIt controls, so just add the command after creating your other controls (date combos and labels) to let them move/remain fixed as you require. As I mentioned above, you may have to play around with the various constants - I can never remember which does what exactly without a bit of experimentation! :x

Yeah, I'd already tried that with no success. I'm using _GUICtrlDTP_Create to create the date picker, so I don't know if that's considered "native". The following is what I have (I've also tried changing -1 to $hDTP2 and $hDTP3)

$hDTP2 = _GUICtrlDTP_Create($LogHistory, 423, 20)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)
    
$hDTP3 = _GUICtrlDTP_Create($LogHistory, 613, 20)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)

I've tried searching the GuiDateTimePicker.au3 source to see if there is a function provided, but didn't see anything. The constants have performed as expected with everything else. If I'm overlooking something, let me know. I'm willing to change my date picker to something more native if needs be.

CGRemakes,

When you reply please use the "Add Reply" button at the top and bottom of the page rather then the "Reply" button in the post itself. That way you do not get the contents of the previous post quoted in your reply and the whole thread becomes easier to read. :shifty:

Unfortunately GUICtrlSetResizing does not work with UDF created controls - any function with a leading underscore is not native. :P

But do not worry, it just means we have to do a bit more coding ourselves: :lol:

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

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

$hDTP = _GUICtrlDTP_Create($hGUI, 250, 10, 120, 30)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Refresh", 400, 10, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)

GUICtrlCreateListView("Col 1|Col 2", 10, 50, 480, 370)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBORDERS)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Refresh", 400, 430, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)

GUISetState()

; Intercept the GUI resizing messages
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, "WM_SIZE")

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func WM_SIZE($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

    ; Confirm from our GUI
    If $hWnd = $hGUI Then
        ; Move the DTP to the correct place - the BitAND function gives us the new width
        WinMove($hDTP, "", BitAND($lParam, 0xFFFF) - 250, 10)
    EndIfEndFunc   ;==>WM_SIZE

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

All clear now? :x

Thanks for the reply. That seems to be working much better. I'll have to tweak the values a bit, but that shouldn't be a problem. Yeah, I figured I'd better mention the fact that I was using a UDF to clarify. I appreciate the help!
