Retain all sizes from INI on a GUI

3 posts in this topic

Alright, so I have one final resize question on GUI.

I have the current setup to save my GUI settings:

$GuiWidth = IniRead("Playlists.ini", "Settings", "GuiWidth", "Error")
$GuiHeight = IniRead("Playlists.ini", "Settings", "GuiHeight", "Error")

$Gui = GuiCreate("Youtube Playlist Generator", $GuiWidth, $GuiHeight, Default, Default, $WS_SIZEBOX)

And at the close of the program I have

$Size = WinGetPos("Youtube Playlist Generator")
IniWrite("Playlists.ini", "Settings", "GuiWidth", $Size[2])
IniWrite("Playlists.ini", "Settings", "GuiHeight", $Size[3])

Now the problem is, even though it does infact retain the size of the gui, the next run will not keep the X/Y etc. of the controls.

Now, I understand 100% why that is, but the only way I can think to do this is via ControlGetPos on EVERY control, and create a Read/Write command for EVERY control.

That's looking at ~ 30 or so commands for that. I can do it, but it would look horrible in code and be tedious.

Is there another way to keep the controls sizes without having to do this?

If all of your controls are held in an array, you can simply loop through the array in a For..Next loop and write them to the ini, it could be as short as 3 lines of code depending on how you set up the control array.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

That's true, I'll look into that. Thanks for the idea.
