Window resizing and GUIRegisterMsg()

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello there!

Currently, I use this from Melba23 to prevent my AutoIt GUI from being resized too small, and it works extremely well!

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
 
Global $GUIMINWID = 200, $GUIMINHT = 200 ; set your restrictions here
Global $GUIMAXWID = 200, $GUIMAXHT = 200
 
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_GETMINMAXINFO, "WM_GETMINMAXINFO")
 
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 200, 200, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX))
 
GUISetState()
 
$hGUI_2 = GUICreate("Sizer", 200, 200, 100, 100)
 
GUISetState()
 
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
 
Func WM_GETMINMAXINFO($hwnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    $tagMaxinfo = DllStructCreate("int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int", $lParam)
    DllStructSetData($tagMaxinfo,  7, $GUIMINWID) ; min X
    DllStructSetData($tagMaxinfo,  8, $GUIMINHT)  ; min Y
    DllStructSetData($tagMaxinfo,  9, $GUIMAXWID) ; max X
    DllStructSetData($tagMaxinfo, 10, $GUIMAXHT)  ; max Y
    Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>WM_GETMINMAXINFO

Problem with this, though, is that it doesn't seem to work with external, non AutoIt-created GUIs. To compensate for this, I created a simple script that loops continuously and checks that the window size is large enough. If not, it would resize the window accordingly:

Global $p_ID, $hWnd, $hSize
 
$p_ID = Run('Notepad.exe')
 
$hWnd = WinWait('[CLASS:Notepad]', '', 5)
 
While WinGetProcess($hWnd) <> $p_ID
    $hWnd = WinList("[CLASS:Notepad]")
 
    For $i = 1 To $hWnd[0][0]
        If WinGetProcess($hWnd[$i][0]) = $p_ID Then
            $hWnd = $hWnd[$i][1]
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
WEnd
 
While WinExists($hWnd)
    $hSize = WinGetPos($hWnd)
 
    If $hSize[2] < 800 Then WinMove($hWnd, '', $hSize[0], $hSize[1], 800, $hSize[3])
    If $hSize[3] < 600 Then WinMove($hWnd, '', $hSize[0], $hSize[1], $hSize[2], 600)
WEnd

Cheap, I know, but I am unable to find any other alternatives.

Thanks for any input, guys!

I think your second solution is a good workaround.

#include <WinAPIEx.au3> ; Search the Examples forum.

Global $aArray, $hHandle, $iPID

$iPID = Run('Notepad.exe')
$aArray = _WinAPI_EnumProcessWindows($iPID)
If @error Then
    Exit
EndIf
$hHandle = $aArray[1][0]

While 1
    If ProcessExists($iPID) = 0 Then
        ExitLoop
    EndIf

    $aArray = WinGetPos($hHandle)
    If $aArray[2] < 800 Then
        WinMove($hHandle, '', $aArray[0], $aArray[1], 800, $aArray[3])
    EndIf
    If $aArray[3] < 600 Then
        WinMove($hHandle, '', $aArray[0], $aArray[1], $aArray[2], 600)
    EndIf
    Sleep(100) ; Reduce CPU.
WEnd

Yes, I guess so. Problem is, though, I'd like my users to be unable to resize these windows - but here the potential for resizing still exists. Adding the sleep(100), whilst decreasing CPU load for slower PCs, makes the GUI less fancy :graduated:

Thanks for your input though! I'm looking forwards to those by others ;)

Just delete the sleep. The two while functions weren't really needed in your example :graduated:

Thanks for your assistance. I'm going to assume that there's no other alternative to accomplish the OP other than what I specified? :oops:

Anyways, onto another issue here xD

In GUICtrlCreateInput, you could set the maximum of characters allowed for entry by using GUICtrlSetLimit($handle, maxvalue). Is this possible for a GUICtrlCreateCombobox? Once again, I'd prefer a native function. Thank you :D

Edit: Fixed: _GUICtrlComboBox_LimitText()
