Gui - snap to grid

Recommended Posts

kaotkbliss

I'm not sure of what to look for, or how I would code this (apart from a complicated get desktop size and divide it up into my own grid)

I was wanting to have my gui act in the same manner as normal desktop gadgets where they auto-snap to the desktop's grid, how would I do this in AutoIt or get autoit to interact with the desktop grid to do this?

well you could use a buch of if statements to check if the gui is not at a predetermined coord, then have it move to thata location if it is outside the area you defined, however that would require a lot of if statements an knowing exactly where you want it to snap

Edit:

you would also have to add an And statment checking if the position is'nt past the next part of the grid to every if statement. not sure if it is the best way to do it but its just my contribution

Yeah, I thought of that using @desktopwidth and @desktopheight then dividing by the gui's width and height to "make" my own grid, but I would much prefer to use the one the desktop already has to it is sure to line up with other desktop gadgets.

Try this

#include <WinApi.au3>

ConsoleWrite ( "$_TaskbarHeight : " & _GetTaskbarHeight ( ) & @Crlf )

Func _GetTaskbarHeight ( )
    Local Const $SPI_GETWORKAREA = 48
    Local $WorkArea, $stRect = DllStructCreate ( "long left;long top;long right;long bottom" )
    Local $iResult = _WinAPI_SystemParametersInfo ( $SPI_GETWORKAREA, 0, DllStructGetPtr ( $stRect ), 0 )
    If $iResult = True Then
        $WorkArea = DllStructGetData ( $stRect, "bottom" ) - DllStructGetData ( $stRect, "top" )
        If Not @error Then Return @DesktopHeight - $WorkArea
    EndIf
EndFunc ;==> _GetTaskbarHeight ( )

look at _WinAPI_GetWorkArea function too.

well, I just found thread and apparently doesn't look very easy. I was hoping there was some dll or api or whatever that could be tapped into to access "the grid" but apparently not. :mellow:

I think that you have to check if the new coords of the windows is to close to another windows or the desktop edge and do the cases

Am I the only one not sure what "grid" kaotkbliss means? Explanation? :mellow:

a grid is like the koda.. when you move a control inside the koda the control moves from one point of the grid to another.. is the same but with windows.

look at this, maybe it is useful

Thanks MS for that find, looks like it may help make things a lot easier :mellow:

@Admiral - I'm pretty sure there is an invisible grid or checkerboard on the desktop mostly used to align icons, but many desktop gadgets also use an invisible checkerboard to line up the gadgets.

When you are moving the gadget and get close to the edge of one of these squares, the gadget auto aligns itself with that edge.

At least, that's how I percieve it.

@kaotkbliss

The desktop is just a listview, and the gadgets is most likely the application itself doing it. I don't think Windows has anything to do with it.

Yea the icons are a list view and you can "align to grid" which is handled by the actual desktop. Windows/Widgets i'd think you'd have to do the math yourself to have it snap to edges, but you'd have to be aware of other windows open as well so you're not limited to just one.

Thinking of making an AutoIt widget?

Thanks guys. Going to take a bit of work but at least I know where to start.

@Zac - Already have one, for the most part.

The only thing is it doesn't "snap to grid" but is "free floating" like typical windows.

Ok, so I've been playing around with some ideas of how to do this, but I just can't seem to get it.

I'm using Valik's wonderful _sendmessage function to make the popup gui dragable and it almost seems like it's a blocking function.

basically what I was thinking was take the screen width and divide by the width of the gui to give me x numbers across, then loop through x while checking the position of the gui. If the gui is within so many pixels of the "line" then winmove it to the line.

Also do the same with height.

However, I haven't been able to get it, even when adding the code directly to the sendmessage include.

it seems to only do the check when I release the mouse instead of while it's held down.

#EndRegion thanks to xrxca for these functions

Func Terminate()
    Exit 0

but it seems maybe _sendmessage is a blocking function so I even tried changing to

ElseIf $mpos[0] > $wpos[0] + $extrax And $mpos[1] > $wpos[1] + $extray And $mpos[0] < $wpos[0] + $ipos[0] + $extrax + $ipos[2] And $mpos[1] < $wpos[1] + $ipos[1] + $extray + $ipos[3] Then
                ;if the click is not in the list but in the main gui
                For $gridx = 0 To $xgrid
                        For $gridy = 0 To $ygrid
                            _SendMessage2($hGUI, $gridx, $gridy, $WM_SYSCOMMAND, $SC_DRAGMOVE, 0);move the gui
                        Next
                    Next
            EndIf

and adding this

Func _SendMessage2($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam = 0, $lParam = 0, $iReturn = 0, $wParamType = "wparam", $lParamType = "lparam", $sReturnType = "lresult")
    Local $aResult = DllCall("user32.dll", $sReturnType, "SendMessageW", "hwnd", $hWnd, "uint", $iMsg, $wParamType, $wParam, $lParamType, $lParam)
    If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, "")
    If $iReturn >= 0 And $iReturn <= 4 Then 
        $wpos = WinGetPos($ver)
        $mposs = MouseGetPos()
        If ($mposs[0] >= ($gridx * $wpos[2] - 30) And $mposs[0] <= ($gridx * $wpos[2] + 30)) And ($mposs[1] >= ($gridy * $wpos[3] - 30) And $mposs[1] <= ($gridy * $wpos[3] + 30)) Then
            WinMove($ver, "", $gridx * $wpos[2], $gridy * $wpos[3])
        EndIf
        Return $aResult[$iReturn]
    EndIf
    Return $aResult
EndFunc   ;==>_SendMessage

but all have the same result, it only checks the grid AFTER I release the left mouse button instead of while dragging...

I tried just a simple winmove to the mouse location but the gui flickered pretty badly.

Sorry but i don`t know why you complicated so much... What you want to do is that little window snap to the edges of the screen, Am i correct?...

PD SendMessage() is a blocking function... _winapi_postmessage() isn`t.

EDIT: registing a function for this msg will help" WM_MOVING "

I've not seen the postmessage function yet. Thanks for the tip :mellow:

*edit*

not just to edges of screen, but also in a tic-tac-toe board across the screen.

While dragging the gui to a new spot, if it comes close to the edges of this tic-tac-toe board, it snaps to that box.

*edit again*

I'm not sure what to put for the last 2 parameters ($iwParam, $ilParam) not sure what they are. The help file just links to MSDN and I really don't understand what they are saying :)

Look at this... maybe you can adapt it because this doesn´t flick.. you only need to fill the cases :mellow:

I've only been able to play around with these for a little bit, but so far no luck :mellow:

It seems to be making my gui non-movable (I think because my gui is a popup and doesn't have the title bar) so normal dragging methods don't work.

Until GuiGetMsg() = -3
GuiDelete($hGUI)
