Replace Tabs for Columns?

7 posts in this topic

Hey everyone.

I'm making a program for my company with all sorts of features, and i want it to look nice, basically like the one on the picture.

I'm using KODA to do it, but... with tabs, it looks ugly and also with buttons, so is it possible to use columns to replace the tab function?

telmob,

You could just use labels: ;)

:)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $aLabel[4]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

For $i = 0 To 3
    $aLabel[$i] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Page " & $i + 1, 100 * ($i + 1), 10, 100, 20)
Next

GUISetState()

While 1

    $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $iMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $aLabel[0] To $aLabel[3]
            MsgBox(0, "Clicked", "Show controls on Page " & $iMsg - $aLabel[0] + 1)

    EndSwitch

WEnd

Any use? :graduated:

I guess it's a way to do it, but that way i would lose the button functionality. The user would have to click on the text itself and not on the button.

I suppose i could also use a graphic as a button but that would be more difficult and would slow down the program a bit to add one graphic for over effect, another for pressed and another for release.

I have o think about it. :graduated:

telmob,

No, you can click anywhere on the label: :graduated:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

Global $aLabel[4], $aColour[4] = [0xFF0000, 0x00FF00, 0xFFFF00, 0xCCCCFF]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

For $i = 0 To 3
    $aLabel[$i] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Page " & $i + 1, 100 * ($i + 1), 10, 100, 20, BitOr($SS_CENTER, $SS_CENTERIMAGE))
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $aColour[$i])
Next

GUISetState()

While 1

    $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $iMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $aLabel[0] To $aLabel[3]
            MsgBox(0, "Clicked", "Show controls on Page " & $iMsg - $aLabel[0] + 1)

    EndSwitch

WEnd

Sorry, i was distracted. :)

You're right. I guess my main problem is the looks of it.

But with this i can try and put a graphic behind the text and see how it works. :graduated:

You're the man Melba!

;)

EDIT: Ok, just found zettoButton here on the forums that seems perfect for my needs. ;)

I was testing zettoButton... and I am not as impressed as the ease of use of ButtonHover()

HoverButton()

Then you can use the buttons and skins in EzSkin too...
