Several Rebar Issues

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello all,

I'm rewriting a program from scratch. The original program is actually an interesting study in my continual learning of AutoIt - it's very patchwork with new ideas as I learned them or researched them. Anyway, I'm starting over and wanting to make it super efficient, small, and fast.

However... I decided that I really liked the look of the Rebar control and now I'm trying to learn it. It's causing me several headaches. It looks great when I start the program up, but I can't figure out the best way to do resizing. First, I'll post some of the problems I'm having and then I'll post the code. Note about the GUI code: this is the code I'm working with. However, it's only testing code. I know that it is hodge-podge and poorly written. I'm merely trying to come to an understanding of the Rebar before I get into the actual program code. Here are my problems:

Problem 1:

If I minimize the GUI and restore it, the input box and two combo boxes have shifted position. If I then double click on one of the bands in the rebar (thus refreshing the control) the three control boxes shift back to their correct position.

Problem 2:

It seems that having "divider" lines in the toolbar artificially elongates the toolbar rebar control. I'd like for that extra whitespace at the end to go away. For an example of what I mean, resize the bottom right toolbar control (does not contain any dividers) and notice that the images go all the way to the left with no leftover whitespace. Now, do the same to any of the other bands and notice the leftover whitespace. Is there any way around this?

Problem 3:

Maximize the GUI. The "autosize" command of the rebar control (as best as I can figure) doesn't seem to operate like I think it should. If the control is resized, should the bands move up to make it only one or two lines? If that is not what the autosize command is for, what would be the best way to go about achieving this?

Problem 4:

I need there to be a max line size of 3. I don't want the end user expanding the rebar control down over the edit box. I could not find any way to do this. Any ideas?

Problem 5:

I would really like it if I could remove the line above the toolbar icons. I couldn't figure out how to do that last time when I was only using the toolbar controls and so I just left it. However, if there is an option to remove it that I'm unaware of, I would really like to know!

Problem 6:

When the GUI is created, the two combo boxes start out highlighted. Any way to avoid that?

Those are the main problems. I'll post anymore that I find or think of. Here is the code:

And you'll need the dll containing the images. That can be found in the post below.

Just drop that file into the same directory as the code from above.

Thank you all very much for looking at this with me. I wouldn't have posted unless I had exhausted every thread with the word rebar in it; which I did, haha.

Sorry for the double post, but the full editor was not working correctly when I tried to edit the attachment in the above post. Here is the updated custom dll file for this program.

Thanks,

Fett

I hate to bump topics, but it's been over a week and I let the topic slide off the front page. I really need some help. Plus, this thread could serve as a good example for those with Rebar problems in the future.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Fett
