Auto fit GUI window to contents

4 posts in this topic

Is it possible to have a gui window automatically fit to the contents in it rather than having to define the w x h dimensions statically?

In the window there are checkboxes that are generated based on the number of rows in an excel spreadsheet, which will get bigger over time. For every few added rows the gui window height needs to get bigger. I want the form to grow as needed to accommodate the added elements without having to rebuild the .exe. Is this possible?

benjbong,

Do you know the number of checkboxes before you create the GUI? :D

If you do then just create the GUI with the correct size; if not, then WinMove allows you to resize the GUI as required. In both cases, you will need to do the calculations to determine the correct size, of course! :rip:

Or you might like to look at my GUIScrollBarsEx UDF (look in my sig) which would let you keep the GUI size constant (good thing for other controls :)) but adjust the scrolled area within it to fit the required number of checkboxes. :oops:

Thanks, i was wondering more if there was a parameter to set in GUICreate() that would adjust the form height to what is created in it. I ended up calculating the height from the number of checkboxes and other elements, i just wanted to avoid it :D.

benjbong,

No such luck - you have to do the hard work yourself! :D
