OnMoveEvent?

11 posts in this topic

I so wanted to go a day without asking a question here. Now it is barely noon and I have one I can not find the answer to in the help or here in the forums.

How can I tell if a window has been moved other than brute forcing it? An equivalent to 'onmoveEvent' in many C based languages.

WinGetPos()

Perhaps something like

$hWin=WinGetPos("My Gui")
While 1
Sleep(10)
$movegui=WinGetPos("My Gui")
If $movegui[0]<>$hWin[0] Then
MsgBox(0,"Title","Gui Moved!")
EndIf
Wend

That was pretty much what I had in mind as brute forcing it.

My code is not really suited for this. I was hoping there was an object oriented method I was too blind to see or was underdocumented.

...or did you mean a window which you created in your AutoIt script? If so then you need GuiRegister($WM_MOVE,"somefunc") which is possibly what you're thinking of for an on-move event.Otherwise as kaotkbliss says because afaik even shell hooking doesn't tell you when a window is moved.

If you want to detect a user moving your gui, then you could try $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN constant or $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYUP.

I've got to think on this, perhaps combined with a Window has focus command something workable might be crafted.

Thanks.

Bingo.

Got to go out but I will try this as soon as I get back.

Thank you.

What I was thinking was upon a mousedown or up, whichever you choose, a function is called to determine if the window has moved since its last position, which of course you would need to do on script start or something.

I'd really like to understand this but my eyes went cross-eyed reading the help example.

If you are willing could you show my the bare minimum needed to make this work?

Thank you very much. It might take a day to wrap my head around it. But then it opens up lots of possibilities.
