So I'm making this gui with an embedded IE object. It all goes well until I add some functionality, one in particular and it's a big one, the window will be in the same place and same size as you left it when you last exited the program. No big deal until I found that when I resize the window programmatically the controls below the IE Object seemingly disappear. Look a little closer and I find that they're not invisible, just white. I messed around and found out that it has something to do with having the style $WS_CLIPCHILDREN on the gui. I take it off and the controls show up no problem, but then the whole IE object freezes so that's definitely not the solution I'm looking for. I've tried searching the forums, the internet, and the help file, but I can't find the answer to this evil problem. One thing I noticed was that if I resized the window just the slightest with the mouse all the controls would reappear, or if I hovered on them they parts of the control would reappear piece by piece. So I tried using some window redraw / repaint functions, I've tried several different winmove functions, and I even went so far as to try to emulate resizing the window through the mouse by using the _SendMessage function to send the individual WM_ENTERSIZEMOVE, WM_SIZING, WM_SIZE, and WM_EXITSIZEMOVE messages to the window, but to no avail. However if I set a certain size of window with the WM_SIZE message that wasn't the window size it would show up in the window with a bunch of whitespace because it wasn't taking up the whole window, but that isn't germane and I digress.

If anyone knows any rerendering messages I could send the the window please post them here! I'm willing to try anything at the moment. I assume there's a message I'm missing in the resizing emulation since it isn't coming out right.

Oh, another thing that would be helpful is if someone knew how to monitor all the messages going to my gui, instead of just specific individual messages defined by the GUIRegisterMsg function.

Below is a far shortened example of my code along with the screen shot of it with a few citations.

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$name = @UserName
$opts = " |Me ("&$name&")"
$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()

$Main = GUICreate("Example of Frustration", 795, 610, 192, 124, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI,$WS_SIZEBOX,$WS_THICKFRAME,$WS_CLIPCHILDREN))
$ObjectIE = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 8, 8, 777, 561)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKTOP+$GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKLEFT)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Follow", 8, 580, 34, 17, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$ComboFollow = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 48, 578, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL,$WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))
$default = " "
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $opts, $default)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$SliderOpacity = GUICtrlCreateSlider(280, 576, 150, 25)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 255, 55)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, 255)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$ButtonFullscreen = GUICtrlCreateButton("Faux Fullscreen", 680, 576, 107, 25, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)

_IENavigate($oIE, "http://google.com")

Although there might be a style that auto does that.

Yup that is $WS_EX_COMPOSITED

My code:

PredictText: Predict Text of an Edit Control Like Scite. Remote Gmail: Execute your Scripts through Gmail. StringRegExp:Share and learn RegExp.

Run As System: A command line wrapper around PSEXEC.exe to execute your apps scripts as System (LSA). Database: An easier approach for _SQ_LITE beginners.

MathsEx: A UDF for Fractions and LCM, GCF/HCF. FloatingText: An UDF for make your text floating. Clipboard Extendor: A clipboard monitoring tool. 

Custom ScrollBar: Scroll Bar made with GDI+, user can use bitmaps instead. RestrictEdit_SRE: Restrict text in an Edit Control through a Regular Expression.

That did it! (Sort of, see below)

Thank you so much PhoenixXL I searched all over but to no avail not having a clue what to search for.

You've made my day.

Jon: Yeah, I tried that but it didn't work, maybe it would have if I passed it the right combination of flags.

Thank you both for your help.


Although I would like furthur input.

When I add that style, I didn't notice at first, but the IE object starts to flicker really bad when I move the cursor over it, possibly due to heavy rendering process of the frame not being able to draw fast enough?

Is there a way for me to tell it to draw over the old image instead of setting all the pixels to background color and then drawing over that?

      I need to dynamically resize my 2d array while looping. 
      I know this code:
      ReDim $rArray[UBound($rArray) + 1] works for the rows, however, I also need to increase the columns. How would i go about increasing both rows and columns while looping?

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a script to allow pause / resume of Dropbox syncing; so that Dropbox syncing can be scheduled.
      So the idea is that the script will emulate what a user would normally do by clicking on Dropbox on the System Tray and then the script will toggle the sync operation
      If Dropbox currently syncing, will pause If syncing currently paused, will resume I'm writing this script for Windows 10
      I am able to open Dropbox from the System Tray, but I can't figure out how to enumerate the controls. 
      I would have been happy with the "simple" approach of using the Autoit Window Info tool to manually identify the values for the control. But unfortunately as soon as I click on the Finder Tool the Dropbox window closes.
      I then tried enumerating the controls with my script.
      I have experimented with a couple of scripts that others have shared, which while they don't error; don't return any values for the Controls.
      So at the moment I'm stuck and I'm after some ideas
      Is there a way to use a Windows Viewer tool with an app like Dropbox that doesn't remain visible?  (I had a quick look but could not find a solution) If I need to enumerate the controls myself, here is my current script. I'm using _EnumChildWindows from here #include <Array.au3> #include <GuiToolBar.au3> #include <_EnumChildWindows.au3> Local $hSysTray_Handle Local $hWnd="",$hControl=0,$sTitle=0,$sClass=0,$aEnumList Local $hNumber1Button=-1,$hNumber4Button=-1,$hPlusButton=-1,$hEqualButton=-1 $sSearchtext='Dropbox' $iButton=Get_SysTray_IconText($sSearchtext) _GUICtrlToolbar_ClickButton($hSysTray_Handle, $iButton, "left", False, 1) ; MsgBox (64,'Searched Button','Button: '&$iButton&@CRLF&'Instance: '&@extended) If WinActivate($hSysTray_Handle, "") Then ; MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Dropbox Window activated") ; Check Dropbox status - Either: ; 'Up to date' (i.e. syncing) ; 'Syncing paused' (paused) $hWnd = $hSysTray_Handle ; Important to wait for the window to fully 'create' itself before getting child windows! ; Note that other processes that become activated somewhere between WinWait and this will cause WinWaitActive() to wait for manual activation ;WinWaitActive($hWnd) ; bad idea in busy environment Sleep(3000) WinActivate($hWnd) ; this seems to be a better alternative, the window seems fully created after this is called in my tests ; Parameters to function ;$hControl=HWnd(0x########) ;$sTitle="^(\d|\+|=)$" ; PCRE - gets controls with numbers, + or = sign only (problem: no instance #'s!) ;$sClass="Button" $aEnumList=_EnumChildWindows($hWnd,$hControl,$sTitle,$sClass) ;,2) for RegExp Title If @Error Then Exit ; Find specific items [Certain versions of Calc won't return any text] For $i=1 to $aEnumList[0][0] Switch $aEnumList[$i][4] Case "1" $hNumber1Button=$aEnumList[$i][0] ConsoleWrite("'1' Advanced Mode Name (in current state): [CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:"&$aEnumList[$i][3]&"]"&@CRLF) Case "4" $hNumber4Button=$aEnumList[$i][0] ConsoleWrite("'4' Advanced Mode Name (in current state): [CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:"&$aEnumList[$i][3]&"]"&@CRLF) Case "+" $hPlusButton=$aEnumList[$i][0] ConsoleWrite("'+' Advanced Mode Name (in current state): [CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:"&$aEnumList[$i][3]&"]"&@CRLF) Case "=" $hEqualButton=$aEnumList[$i][0] ConsoleWrite("'=' Advanced Mode Name (in current state): [CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:"&$aEnumList[$i][3]&"]"&@CRLF) EndSwitch Next ; Add Headers $aEnumList[0][0]="Handle" $aEnumList[0][1]="Classname" $aEnumList[0][2]="Control ID" $aEnumList[0][3]="Iteration" $aEnumList[0][4]="Title/Text" ; Bring the window forward WinActivate($hWnd) ; Perform a simple calculation to show interaction If $hNumber1Button<>-1 Then ControlClick($hWnd,"",$hNumber1Button,"primary",3) ControlClick($hWnd,"",$hNumber4Button) Sleep(1000) ControlClick($hWnd,"",$hPlusButton) Sleep(1000) ControlClick($hWnd,"",$hNumber4Button,"primary",2) ; double click, but that's fine Sleep(1000) ControlClick($hWnd,"",$hEqualButton) EndIf ; And Display ALL Enumerated Windows _ArrayDisplay($aEnumList,"Enumerated controls for App") Else MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "Error", "Dropbox Window not activated") EndIf Func Get_SysTray_IconText($sSearch) For $i = 1 To 99 ; Find systray handles $hSysTray_Handle = ControlGetHandle('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', '[Class:ToolbarWindow32;Instance:' & $i & ']') ; ConsoleWrite ("Handle: " & $hSysTray_Handle & @CRLF) If @error Then ;MsgBox(16, "Error", "System tray not found") ExitLoop EndIf ; Get systray item count Local $iSysTray_ButCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($hSysTray_Handle) ConsoleWrite("iSysTray_ButCount: " & $iSysTray_ButCount & @CRLF ) If $iSysTray_ButCount = 0 Then ;MsgBox(16, "Error", "No items found in system tray") ContinueLoop EndIf Local $aSysTray_ButtonText[$iSysTray_ButCount] ; Look for wanted tooltip For $iSysTray_ButtonNumber = 0 To $iSysTray_ButCount - 1 ConsoleWrite("iSysTray_ButtonNumber: " & $iSysTray_ButtonNumber & " Button_Text: " & _GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hSysTray_Handle, $iSysTray_ButtonNumber) & @CRLF ) If $sSearch= StringLeft(_GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hSysTray_Handle, $iSysTray_ButtonNumber),StringLen($sSearch)) Then ConsoleWrite("Button Text: " & $sSearch & " Handle: " & $hSysTray_Handle & " Button Number: " & $iSysTray_ButtonNumber & @CRLF) Return SetError(0, $i, $iSysTray_ButtonNumber) EndIf Next Next Return SetError(1, -1, -1) EndFunc ;==>Get_SysTray_IconText Thanks,

      hello sirs, i've created a tool to the blind users, this tool helps the blind to listen to a audio effect when moving between the GUIs controls on they computers
      where this tool can get the class for the current focus control and play a sound from a folder
      i've added all the knowne classes, but i found some problems i hope any one can help me.
      this is the code that i created

      Is there a (simple) way to make your script using a picture-control to resize the gui?
      This would be useful for a transparant pop-up window with a custom made theme using picture controls:
      $Form = GUICreate('', 301, 173, 5, 5, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)) GUICtrlCreatePic(@scriptdir & "\resize_win.bmp", 0, 73, 20, 51) ; some api call or code telling the os to use this picture as a resize border GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT+$GUI_DOCKTOP+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While True if GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then Exit WEnd  
      EDIT: to make it more clear what i wanna do, if you go with the mouse arrow over the border of a re-sizable window the arrow changes to a "resize" arrow, you click and drag the border and then the window size adjusts to the mouse position until you release the mouse button.
      I want my picture control to be used the same way as the resize border to resize my window.

      Hey
      Why does Windows 10 "AutoIt Window Info" give the wrong window position?
      WinMove() moves the window to a different point than parameters? -look script

      The test script moves the notepad.exe window to 0, 0, the real window coordinates are 8, 0
      Modified script add WinGetPos() and MouseMove() and MouseGetPos()
      #include <ScreenCapture.au3> Local $iPID = Run("notepad.exe", "") WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10); Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear. WinMove ("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 0, 0, 600, 400) WinActivate("[CLASS:Notepad]") Send("WinMove ('[CLASS:Notepad]', "", 0, 0, 600, 400){ENTER}") Send("@DesktopWidth: " & @DesktopWidth & "{ENTER}") Send("@DesktopHeight: " & @DesktopHeight & "{ENTER}") Send("@DesktopDepth: " & @DesktopDepth & "{ENTER}") Send("@OSArch: " & @OSArch & "{ENTER}") Send("@OSBuild: " & @OSBuild & "{ENTER}") Send("@OSServicePack: " & @OSServicePack & "{ENTER}") Send("@OSType: " & @OSType & "{ENTER}") Send("@OSVersion: " & @OSVersion & "{ENTER}") Send(WinGetPos("[CLASS:Notepad]") & "{ENTER}") Send("X: " & WinGetPos("[CLASS:Notepad]")[0] & "{ENTER}") Send("Y: " & WinGetPos("[CLASS:Notepad]")[1] & "{ENTER}") Send("Width: " & WinGetPos("[CLASS:Notepad]")[2] & "{ENTER}") Send("Height: " & WinGetPos("[CLASS:Notepad]")[3] & "{ENTER}") MouseMove(0,400) Send("MouseMove(0,400){ENTER}") Send("MouseGetPos() X: " & MouseGetPos()[0] & "Y: " & MouseGetPos()[1]) Sleep(100) _ScreenCapture_Capture('C:\temp\screen.bmp',0,0,800,600) MsgBox(0,"Info","Save screen to C:\temp\screen.bmp" & @CRLF & "Click OK to view the bitmap") Run("explorer.exe C:\temp\screen.bmp") Is ALWAYS such a difference 8px (in every Windows 7, 8, Server)?
