[SOLVED] Buttons placed behind Tab item


9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

The script below demonstrates my problem. If I run this script all icon buttons save the one created before the tab control are placed behind the tab and only the icon shows. I've tried everything I could think of, setting different styles, states etc. to the GUI, tab, button, icon... Well you get the picture. Nothing has worked thusfar and I'm at a complete loss here. Any help would be much appreciated.

This will create a GUI with two tabs and four buttons of which three are behind the tab control.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

Local $iExit, $iGUIMsg

GUICreate('Problem...', 180, 150, -1, -1, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
; This button will show correctly.
$iExit = _IconOnButton('Close', 10, 120, 160, 20, 200)
; Create tab.
GUICtrlCreateTab(5, 5, 120, 140)
; First item and button with missing text and borders.
GUICtrlCreateTabItem('One')
_IconOnButton('First', 10, 30, 160, 20, 3)
; Second item and button with missing text and borders.
GUICtrlCreateTabItem('Two')
_IconOnButton('Second', 10, 60, 160, 20, 24)
; Close tab control.
GUICtrlCreateTabItem('')
; Another button with missing text and borders.
_IconOnButton('Third', 10, 90, 160, 20, 1001)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $iGUIMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $iGUIMsg
        Case $iExit, $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ; Exit
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

; By Valuater
Func _IconOnButton($BItext, $BIleft, $BItop, $BIwidth, $BIheight, $BIconNum, $BIDLL = 'shell32.dll')
    GUICtrlCreateIcon($BIDLL, $BIconNum, $BIleft + 5, $BItop + (($BIheight - 16) / 2), 16, 16)
    GUICtrlSetState( -1, $GUI_DISABLE)
    Local $XS_btnx = GUICtrlCreateButton($BItext, $BIleft, $BItop, $BIwidth, $BIheight, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS)
    Return $XS_btnx
EndFunc

It's because of your $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS style for buttons.

Thanks for the reply. But I wish it was that easy...

Take out $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS and the buttons don't have icons. Not what I want. Reverse the order of the creation in _IconOnButton (button first, then the icon) and the icons do show but disappear as soon as the button's clicked.

Why don't you use $BS_ICON style for buttons and set the icon directly to button?

Afaik that doesn't allow for buttons with text, only icon buttons. Those do work btw...

dany,

This works for me: :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiImageList.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>

GUICreate('Problem...', 180, 150, -1, -1, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
$iExit = _IconOnButton('Close', 10, 120, 160, 20, 200)
; Create tab.
GUICtrlCreateTab(5, 5, 120, 110)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem('One')
_IconOnButton('First', 10, 30, 100, 20, 3)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem('Two')
_IconOnButton('Second', 10, 60, 100, 20, 24)
; Close tab control.
GUICtrlCreateTabItem('')
_IconOnButton('Third', 10, 90, 160, 20, 1001)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $iGUIMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $iGUIMsg
        Case $iExit, $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ; Exit
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _IconOnButton($BItext, $BIleft, $BItop, $BIwidth, $BIheight, $BIconNum, $BIDLL = 'shell32.dll')

    $cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton($BItext, $BIleft, $BItop, $BIwidth, $BIheight)
    $hImageList = _GUIImageList_Create(32, 32, 5, 3)
    _GUIImageList_AddIcon($hImageList, $BIDLL, $BIconNum, True)
    _GUICtrlButton_SetImageList($cButton, $hImageList)
    Return $cButton

EndFunc

The icon indices seem a little off - but I leave finding the correct ones to you. ;)

Something like this?

; Create tab.
GUICtrlCreateTab(5, 5, 120, 140)

            Exit

; using image list to set 1 image and have text on button
Func _GetImageListHandle($sFile, $nIconID = 0, $fLarge = False)
    Local $iSize = 16
    If $fLarge Then $iSize = 32

    Local $hImage = _GUIImageList_Create($iSize, $iSize, 5, 3)
    If StringUpper(StringMid($sFile, StringLen($sFile) - 2)) = "BMP" Then
        _GUIImageList_AddBitmap($hImage, $sFile)
    Else
        _GUIImageList_AddIcon($hImage, $sFile, $nIconID, $fLarge)
    EndIf
    Return $hImage
EndFunc   ;==>_GetImageListHandle

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe
trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the Universe is winning.

AWESOME

Much appreciated, gentlemen. Funkey, your #includes are missing, but I get the point. I definetely need to read up on the standard lib.

Again, Thanks!
