GUISetStyle() problem?

Recommended Posts

lark

Hello everyone.

I have run into a problem that is somewhere along the lines of GUISetStyle() does not really function as it should. In one of my programs, I had $WS_EX_TOPMOST as the extended style of the GUI. When I added functionality for a tray item to change whether or not the GUI had this style applied, I found that GUISetStyle did not do anything. Maybe I did something wrong? But then, I set up a test program and found that if I created the GUI without setting the style, and then using GUISetStyle() right afterwards, nothing happened (the GUI did not stay on top of the other windows). Here is the test program that I used. Did I use the function wrong, or why is the style not being set?

Thanks.

Here is the program:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>



Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1)
Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1)

TrayCreateItem("Exit")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "trayExit")


TrayCreateItem("Keep GUI On Top of Other Windows")
TrayItemSetState(-1, $TRAY_CHECKED)
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "trayKeepGUIOnTop")


Global $boolKeepGUIOnTop = True


Global $hForm = GUICreate("Lark Autoclicker", 580, 550)
ConsoleWrite(GUISetStyle(BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU), $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $hForm) & @CRLF & @CRLF)

GUISetState()


Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3





Func trayKeepGUIOnTop()
If $boolKeepGUIOnTop Then; if its true then set it to false and get rid of the style of the GUI
ConsoleWrite("true" & @CRLF)
$boolKeepGUIOnTop = False
ConsoleWrite(GUISetStyle(BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU), 0) & @CRLF & @CRLF); set the GUI to its default style
Else
ConsoleWrite("false" & @CRLF)
$boolKeepGUIOnTop = True; its false so set it to true
GUISetStyle(-1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST); set the GUI to stay on top
EndIf
EndFunc


Func trayExit(); for the tray item "Exit"
Exit
EndFunc

Isnt $WS_EX_TOPMOST used for Guis when creating more than 1 Gui to set on top of other gui or not?

if your looking to set on top use

WinSetOnTop($hForm, "", 1)

play around with

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1)
Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1)
TrayCreateItem("Exit")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "trayExit")
TrayCreateItem("Keep GUI On Top of Other Windows")
TrayItemSetState(-1, $TRAY_CHECKED)
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "trayKeepGUIOnTop")
Global $boolKeepGUIOnTop = True
Global $hForm = GUICreate("Lark Autoclicker1", 580, 550)
Global $hForm1 = GUICreate("Lark Autoclicker2", 580, 550)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$hForm)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$hForm1)
GUISetStyle(-1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST,$hForm1)
Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3
Func trayKeepGUIOnTop()
    If $boolKeepGUIOnTop Then; if its true then set it to false and get rid of the style of the GUI
        $boolKeepGUIOnTop = False
;~ WinSetOnTop($hForm, "", 0)
    Else
        $boolKeepGUIOnTop = True; its false so set it to true
;~ WinSetOnTop($hForm, "", 1)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>trayKeepGUIOnTop

Func trayExit(); for the tray item "Exit"
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>trayExit

change from

GUISetStyle(-1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST,$hForm1)

to

GUISetStyle(-1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST,$hForm)

for effect

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

      This script used to work on an older version of AutoIT. Currently I am running AutoIT v3.3.14.5 and it's failing.
      Func PublicIP() ;Post public facing IP address Local $url = 'https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&q=what+is+my+ip&sourceid=opera&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8' Local $getIPaddress = BinaryToString(InetRead($url)) Local $sStart = 'clamp:2">' Local $sEnd = '</div>' Local $ipaddress = _StringBetween($getIPaddress, $sStart, $sEnd For $i In $ipaddress MsgBox(0, 'External IP', "Your public IP address is " & $i) Next EndFunc ;==>PublicIP The console output shows:

      Hello everyone,
      I have a radio button ($Radio1), which I want to disable as soon as another one get's checked (Radio5). (The system fails if the radio button i'm troubling with also gets checked).
      I know how to disable him:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5), $GUI_DISABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5, 128) But if i try to enable $Radio5 again, after $Radio1 isn't checked anymore, it fails:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=Not 1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5), $GUI_ENABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5, 64)  
      Anyone knows why?

      I'm listing the error message strings, and roughly matching the error code
      Is this how to do error reporting?  Is there a more simple way I don't know about?
      I realise I might not need to trap @error inside $error.  I like it this way b/c I have no fear of overwriting @error now; I don't even use it.
      Func Send_Connect($address, $port)     $socket = TCPConnect($address, $port)     $error = @error     If $error <> 0 Then         Local $aError[4] = ["-2 not connected.", _                             "1 IPAddr is incorrect.", _                             "2 port is incorrect."]         $aError[3] = "10060 Connection timed out."         If $error < 0 Then $error = 0         If $error > 2 Then $error = 3         MsgBox(0, "TCP Connect Error", $aError[$error], 0)         $socket = 0     EndIf     Return $socket EndFunc

      Hello
      Dear Sirs, I have a question please

      Can this be done?
      here's the example
      ______

      #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <UpDownConstants.au3> goto() func Goto() local $wGoto = GUICreate("go to spissific position", 250, 180, @DesktopWidth / 2 - 192, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 235, -1) GUICtrlCreateLabel("please write a corect position to go to it", 50, 10, 220, 20) GUICtrlCreateLabel("hours", 0, 80, 100, 30) local $Inp1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("00", 0, 90, 100, 20, $ES_NUMBER + $WS_TABSTOP)     GUICtrlCreateUpdown($Inp1, $UDS_ARROWKEYS) GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 23, 0) GUICtrlCreateLabel("minuts", 110, 80, 100, 30) local $Inp2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("00", 110, 90, 100, 20, $ES_NUMBER + $WS_TABSTOP)     GUICtrlCreateUpdown($Inp2, $UDS_ARROWKEYS) GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 60, 0) GUICtrlCreateLabel("seconds", 220, 80, 100, 30) local $Inp3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("00", 220, 90, 100, 20, $ES_NUMBER + $WS_TABSTOP)     GUICtrlCreateUpdown($Inp3, $UDS_ARROWKEYS) GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 60, 0) local $Ok = GUICtrlCreateButton("&ok", 0, 150, 50, 30, 0x01) local $cancel = GUICtrlCreateButton("&cancel", 200, 150, 50, 30) GUISetState(@sw_show, $WgoTo) while 1 switch GUIGetMSG() case $GUI_Event_Close, $cancel exit case $OK local $read1 = GUICtrlRead($inp1) if $read1 >= 1 then $Read1 = ($Read1*60)*60 local $read2 = GUICtrlRead($inp2) if $read2 >= 1 then $Read2 = $Read2*60 local $read3 = GUICtrlRead($inp3) GUIDelete($WgoTo) Return $read1+$read2+$read3 exit endSwitch Wend EndFunc
