[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. ;)

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!

      Winmove GUI moves buttons
      By FMS
      Hello,
      Below is a code whish i made for this problem i've. (code 1)
      The problem is that iff i try Winmove to to show the hidden button it's not working as i tought.
      What i try to do is just simple expand the GUI to make the hidden button visible. (code 2)
      I've already looked into GUICoordMode but don't think that's the problem.(or I don't understand it properly)
      Also tried to look into the forum but din't find anything around this subject but could't find anything around this subject.
      Does somebody knows what I'm doing wrong?
       
      Code 1 (winmove prblem) :
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 134, 103, 192, 124) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 8, 8, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("2", 8, 40, 75, 25) $Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("3", 8, 72, 75, 25) $expand_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("EXP", 96, 40, 27, 25) $hidden_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hidden", 160, 40, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $expand_button WinMove($Form1, "From1", 192, 124, 300, 103) EndSwitch WEnd  
      Code 2 What I'm trying to expand to :
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 265, 114, 192, 124) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 8, 8, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("2", 8, 40, 75, 25) $Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("3", 8, 72, 75, 25) $expand_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("EXP", 96, 40, 27, 25) $hidden_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hidden", 160, 40, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd

      Exit function from "outsite" with button press
      By Comboku
      Hi Guys,
      I have written a little loop program that counts to whatever you choose in "Rounds". 

      (this is just a short version of my program, but it should cover what I try to achieve)

      I now want to be able to stop the counting by pressing the start/stop button. Unfortunately, autoit only registers my click on my button AFTER the func has ended.

      Do you guys have an idea how to stop the function? Maybe check if button was pressed in the loop? 


      Thanks,

      Comboku
