Dock/embed a second GUI to SciTE.


Recommended Posts

of docking SciTE Jump to SciTE and embedding the GUI similar to but I was unable to come up with what I would call a good solution apart from the following code below (which is fully working by the way.)

So my question is does anyone have an idea of how to achieve embedding a second GUI in SciTE. I personally think it's not possible, but I would love to be proved wrong. Thanks.

Working code, if a little clumsy.

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w- 4 -w 5 -w 6 -w 7
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

If (Not ProcessExists('SciTE.exe')) Then
    Exit MsgBox(4096, '', 'Please start SciTE.exe')
EndIf

Func Example()
    ; Create a GUI, similar to SciTE Jump's GUI.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate('', 215, 400, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX))
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    ; Dock the first window to left and adjust the width based on the width of the second GUI.
    _DockToWindow(WinGetHandle('[CLASS:SciTEWindow]'), $hGUI)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
    GUIDelete($hGUI)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Personally I think it's good enough.

Just a small correction needed:

WinMove($hHandle_2, '', $aWorkArea[0] + $aWorkArea[2] - $aClientSize_2[2], $aWorkArea[1], $aClientSize_2[2], $aWorkArea[3])

Thanks for that, I've updated the original post.

guinness,

Why are you resizing both GUIs to completely fill the screen? Personally I would like the additional GUI to fit neatly alongside the existing SciTE GUI without changing its size (unless it is too wide for the new GUI to fit): ;)

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w- 4 -w 5 -w 6 -w 7

    Exit MsgBox(4096, '', 'Please start SciTE.exe')
EndIf
Example()

Func Example()
    ; Create a GUI, similar to SciTE Jump's GUI.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate('', 215, 400, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX))
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    ; Dock the first window to left
    _DockToWindow(WinGetHandle('[CLASS:SciTEWindow]'), $hGUI)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                GUIDelete($hGUI)
                Exit
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

EndFunc   ;==>Example

Func _DockToWindow($hHandle_1, $hHandle_2)

    Local $aSciTE_Pos = WinGetPos($hHandle_1)

    ; Set width of GUI
    If $aSciTE_Pos[2] * 1.25 > @DesktopWidth Then
        ; Resize SciTE if too big
        WinMove($hHandle_1, "", Default, Default, @DesktopWidth * .8)
        ; Reset the positions
        $aSciTE_Pos = WinGetPos($hHandle_1)
    EndIf
    ; Now position GUI
    WinMove($hHandle_2, '', $aSciTE_Pos[0] + $aSciTE_Pos[2], $aSciTE_Pos[1], $aSciTE_Pos[2] / 4, $aSciTE_Pos[3])

guinness,

I was just mimicking FuncPopUp's approach, but re-sizing relative to the size of SciTE is a better option. Thanks.
