embed graphic control in status bar

3 posts in this topic

Is it possible to embed a graphic control in a status bar? The help document says we can embed ANY control in status bar,so what about graphic control?

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>

Local $hGUI, $hStatus, $Graphic, $hGraphic
Local $aParts[4] = [80, 160, 300, -1]

$hGUI = GUICreate("StatusBar Embed Control", 400, 300)
$hStatus = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create ($hGUI)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetMinHeight ($hStatus, 20)
;~ $Graphic = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(300, 270, 100, 20, -1)     ; I can't cover the StatusBar Control
;~ GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xa0ffa0)
;~ GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_COLOR, 0xff0000, 0xff0000)
;~ For $i = 0 To 4
;~  GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_RECT, 10+$i*20, 5, 10, 10)
;~ Next
GUISetState()
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetParts ($hStatus, $aParts)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText ($hStatus, "Part 1")
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText ($hStatus, "Part 2", 1)

$Graphic = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(0, 0, -1, -1, -1)            ; Embed Graphic??
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xa0ffa0)
GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_COLOR, 0xff0000, 0xff0000)
For $i = 0 To 4
    GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_RECT, 10+$i*20, 5, 10, 10)
Next
$hGraphic = GUICtrlGetHandle($Graphic)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_EmbedControl ($hStatus, 3, $hGraphic, 3)
    Do
    Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    GUIDelete()

A graphic control is associated with a window, and it is not a separate component like a button is for example. So if you want the graphic control in the status bar you have to first associate it with another window and then insert that window in the status bar. Since you don't want all the non-client bits of the window you need to make a window with the style WS_POPUP.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>
#include <winapi.au3>
#include <windowsconstants.au3>

Local $hGUI, $hStatus, $Graphic, $hGraphic
Local $aParts[4] = [80, 160, 300, -1]

$hGUI = GUICreate("StatusBar Embed Control", 400, 300)
$hStatus = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($hGUI)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetMinHeight($hStatus, 20)

GUISetState()

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetParts($hStatus, $aParts)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($hStatus, "Part 1")
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($hStatus, "Part 2", 1)

;create a new window
$hg = GUICreate("Graphic holder", 90, 20, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP)
$Graphic = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(0, 0, -1, -1, -1) ; Embed Graphic
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xa0ffa0)
GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_COLOR, 0xff0000, 0xff0000)
For $i = 0 To 4
    GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_RECT, 10 + $i * 20, 5, 10, 10)
Next
GUISetState()

;add the graphic holder window to the status bar
_GUICtrlStatusBar_EmbedControl($hStatus, 3, $hg, 3)

GUISwitch($hGUI)
Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
GUIDelete()

THANK YOU! martin. I have figured out the 'EMBED' is though '_WinAPI_MoveWindow' Function. And the graphic control can't be moved. THANKS again. Edited by flashlab
