GUI Position on different Resolutions

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys.

I want to create a small GUI that shows in the bottom right of the screen, just above the systems tray. The following code does this on my laptop:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$GUI = GUICreate("Test", 259, 83, 1006, 640)
$Text = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Test", 88, 24, 58, 36)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

When this is run on a different resolution the GUI is out of place - obviously due to specifying the position the GUI is set to appear. Anybody know what I need to do to get this to appear in the correct place no matter of the resolution? I guess I need to specify where to place the gui in relation to the res, but not sure from there :unsure:

Thanks in advance,

3mustgetbeers,

Use the @DesktopWidth and @DesktopHeight macros to determine the resolution - then position your GUI relative to those values: :unsure:

$GUI = GUICreate("Test", 259, 83, @DesktopWidth - 260, @DesktopHeight - 105)

Of course, you will need to adjust the values to get it exactly where you want. :>

Try this:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
$aTaskbar = WinGetPos("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]", "")
$GUI = GUICreate("Test", 259, 83, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight)
$Text = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Test", 88, 24, 58, 36)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$aWin = WinGetPos($GUI)
WinMove($GUI, "", @DesktopWidth - $aWin[2] - 4, @DesktopHeight - $aWin[3] - $aTaskbar[3] - 4)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Tested on Win7 x64.

Just look in the help file: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/WinGetPos.htm

It is the width of the window. I tried to calculate the height of the taskbar, width and height of the windows and finally a little calculation to place the window to the right bottom just above the taskbar.

PS: I update the code.
