Scrolling a tab on a gui - Possible?

6 posts in this topic

I have a gui set up. It has several tabs.

On one of the tabs I need about 100 rows.

Each row includes 7 input fields.

As you can guess. I cant fit 100 rows on the gui without exceeding the gui size.

The gui is currently set at 800,600. I can see around 20 rows.

I need to somehow be able to scroll down on the tab to see the additional 80 tabs...

A scroll bar like in IE would be great!

Any suggestions?

test included. Thanks!

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_ParentWin_Special_Close")
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 800, 600, Default, Default)
$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 780, 560, $TCS_BUTTONS)
$tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab1")
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_SHOW); will be display first
Dim $F[1000]
$aLeft = 20
$aTop = 150
$aHeigth = 20
$Rows = (1+(50*6)) ;rows = 50
For $x = 1 To $Rows Step 7
$F[$x] = GUICtrlCreateInput($x, 20, $aTop, 30, $aHeigth)
$F[$x+1] = GUICtrlCreateInput($x+1, 20+30+2, $aTop, 30, $aHeigth)
$F[$x+2] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($x+2, 20+30+30+4, $aTop, 120, $aHeigth)
$F[$x+3] = GUICtrlCreateInput($x+3, 20+30+30+120+6, $aTop, 300, $aHeigth)
$F[$x+4] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($x+4, 20+30+30+120+300+8, $aTop, 120, $aHeigth)
$F[$x+5] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($x+5, 20+30+30+120+300+120+10, $aTop, 40, $aHeigth)
$F[$x+6] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($x+6, 20+30+30+120+300+120+40+12, $aTop, 80, $aHeigth)
$aTop = $aTop + 22
Next
$tab2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab2")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
Sleep(20)

EndFunc   ;==>_ParentWin_Special_Close

John117,

Try a child GUI with a scrollbar. ;)

The Tabs tutorial in the Wiki shows how to deal with child GUIs on tabs - the GUIScrollBars_Ex UDF in my sig will get you scrollbars in the child GUI very easily. Give it a try and come back if you run into difficulties. :)

Melba23: Thank you for your suggestion! Looks like it will be a good option.

I am stuck on how to automatically display the child gui and hide it when selecting another tab. Looks like it doesnt like 'onevent' for the individual tab selection.

Any thoughts on how to hide it, short of placing a button on the tab is should be on and having all tab selections hide it? (not really a bad option I guess)

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <StaticConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_ParentWin_Special_Close")
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 800, 600, Default, Default)
$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 780, 560, $TCS_BUTTONS)

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_SHOW); will be display first

$Rows = (1+(100*6)) ;rows = 50

GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

$hTab_Win0 = GUICreate("", 780, 400, 10, 150, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $Form1)

John117,

I would do it like this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include "GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3"

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 800, 600, Default, Default)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")

$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 780, 560, $TCS_BUTTONS)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Tab")

$tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab1")
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_SHOW); will be display first
$Left = 600
$Top = 40
$Heigth = 20
$Width = 120

$tab2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab2")
Dim $F[1000]
$aLeft = 20
$aTop = 150
$aHeigth = 20
$Rows = (1 + (100 * 6)) ;rows = 50

; Close Tab definiton
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

$hTab_Win0 = GUICreate("", 780, 400, 10, 150, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $Form1)
GUISetBkColor(0xFF0000) ; Just to show the GUI clearly
$aTop = 20
For $x = 1 To $Rows Step 7
    $F[$x] = GUICtrlCreateInput($x, 20, $aTop, 30, $aHeigth)
    $F[$x + 1] = GUICtrlCreateInput($x + 1, 20 + 30 + 2, $aTop, 30, $aHeigth)
    $F[$x + 2] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($x + 2, 20 + 30 + 30 + 4, $aTop, 120, $aHeigth)
    $F[$x + 3] = GUICtrlCreateInput($x + 3, 20 + 30 + 30 + 120 + 6, $aTop, 300, $aHeigth)
    $F[$x + 4] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($x + 4, 20 + 30 + 30 + 120 + 300 + 8, $aTop, 120, $aHeigth)
    $F[$x + 5] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($x + 5, 20 + 30 + 30 + 120 + 300 + 120 + 10, $aTop, 40, $aHeigth)
    $F[$x + 6] = GUICtrlCreateCombo($x + 6, 20 + 30 + 30 + 120 + 300 + 120 + 40 + 12, $aTop, 80, $aHeigth)
    $aTop = $aTop + 22
Next
_GUIScrollbars_Generate($hTab_Win0, 0, 2000)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Form1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hTab_Win0)

While 1
    Sleep(20)
WEnd

Func _Tab()

    Switch GUICtrlRead($tab)
        Case 0
            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hTab_Win0)
        Case 1
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hTab_Win0)
    EndSwitch

EndFunc   ;==>_Tab

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Please ask if anything is unclear. :)

Glad you like the Scrollbars UDF. ;)

$bShow = True
 
Func _ToggleWin()
    $bShow = Not $bShow
    If $bShow Then
        GUISetState(@SW_Show, $hTab_Win0)
        Return
    EndIf
    GUISetState(@SW_Hide, $hTab_Win0)
EndFunc

Also add event functions for the TAB not the TabItems using GUICtrlRead($Tab)

And you shouldn't have GUICtrlCreateTabItem("") where it is. Put it after the last control on that tab.

Thank you very much! I will start giving more attention and credit to switches. I haven't spent much time with them, but can see how much easier they make things.

Also, thanks for chipping in GEOSoft! Appreciate it!
