Scroll mouseover window, or window w/o focus - Help

Recommended Posts

zvvyt

Hi there ya'll!

What I've got is 2 GUIs being ontop of eachother, one being the others parent.

The parent serves mostly as a background as the child is a bit smaller, transparent and contains a set of images/icons. The child GUI also has a scrollbar created by _GUIScrollbars_Generate.

The problem I'm having is that in the parent GUI I have an inputbox, created by GUICtrlCreateInput, and as that inputbox got focus I want to be able to scroll the child GUI.

I can't set the inputbox in the child instead as I guess it would be too much work moving it as I scroll along.

As I'm having it now I manually have to click inside the child GUI to be able to scroll it, and then click inside the parent/inputbox to type again.

Don't know if there's any other great solution to this. I just thought that a mouseover scroll be OK!

If you got any other solution I'd happily take that aswell! :D

Best regards,

zvvyt

zvvyt,

You have been here long enough to know that your chances of a response are much higher if you include some code we can look at. I for one am not writing a whole bunch of code (that may not look anything like the code you have) just to test. ;)

So please post a short reproducer script and we will take a look. :)

zvvyt,

That was fun! :D

I tried to use the WindowFromPoint API function but the fact that the icon GUI is a child seemed to defeat it. So I have gone this rather less elegant way (look for the <<<<<<<<<<< lines as usual):

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

Global $fOver_Main = False ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

First of all: What did you consider "fun"? x)

And second:

What you gave me actually functioned quite great, only that the inputbox only gets focus when the cursor is above the child GUI, not that the child GUI gets focus when that one is hovered.

To get the child GUI to get focused when it's hovered I just added WinActivate($Icon_Select_Screen) to your function, so your function now looks like this:

$aCInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo($Icon_Select_Screen_Background) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
If $aCInfo[1] < 50 Then
     If $fOver_Main = False Then
         GUICtrlSetState($Icon_Name_Search, $GUI_FOCUS)
         $fOver_Main = True
     EndIf
Else
if $fOver_Main = False then
Else
        if WinActive($Icon_Select_Screen_Background) then
                WinActivate($Icon_Select_Screen); -----------------------------------
                $fOver_Main = False
        EndIf
EndIf
EndIf ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

AND (lol) by doing this I just noticed that when I have the script running in background my cursormovement on the forums trigger the function, activating the child GUI and makes it the top window >__<'

EDIT: Is there else a possible, and not too hardcore, solution to register the scrollcommand when the inputbox and the background/parent GUI is active and send that to the not focused child GUI?

2nd edit: Updated the script with "if WinActive($Icon_Select_Screen_Background)" to bypass the earlier problem.

zvvyt,

But the end result is the same, no? You can use the scrollbar without clicking in the child and the input gets focus when the mouse is not over the child. ;)

Well .. Both yes and no I guess.

It's true, now I don't need to click in either the inputbox nor in the child GUI to make the magic happen, but still I can't have the inputbox at focus and scroll at the same time x)

Don't know if I'm wishing for the impossible by having them at 2 separate GUIs, but that was what I had my hopes for: Have both in focus at the same time-ish.

Sorry if I made that unclear at start, but many thanks for this function and for opening my eyes to the usefulness of this! :)

Now you get the input in focus as soon as you finish scrolling. Better? ;)

According to the help-file, "$GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYUP" is "the primary mouse button was released.", so that didn't work at all straightly pasted into the loop =/

But the way you're thinking is the way I want it! Recognise when a scroll is done, switch to the window to scroll and when the scrolling is over, switch back to the box! :D

And so when you release the mouse button after scrolling, the input is given the focus. :)

Are you telling me that the code I posted did not work? :huh:

Aah, now I see what you're after .. !

In my script I've hid the scrollbar for the visual effect, meaning all my scrolling is handled by the mousewheel.

Are you telling me that the code I posted did not work? :huh:

For the way you ment it to work it worked like a charm! ^__^'

I see. :)

When I hide the scrollbar on that example script I can use the mousewheel to scroll when the cursor is over the icons and the input remains focused throughout:

When I hide the scrollbar on that example script I can use the mousewheel to scroll when the cursor is over the icons and the input remains focused throughout:

Is that not good enough? :huh:

Sadly, I won't get that to work for me =/

All I get is the inputbox in focus and I'm unable to scroll at all, because even if I click in the child the $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYUP returns focus to the inputbox.

I don't get what's wrong as you seem to get it to work =/

Here's my script from the first time I pasted it, updated with your codes. Tell me if you're able to identify the problem :o

This is so frustrating .. Tested your script and it won't work for me =/ Don't know if this is OS-related now or if my computer just refuses to let it work, as I'm running latest version of AutoIt and scite.

On a laptop running Windows 7 x64 if that would make any difference ..

zvvyt,

I asked someone to test the script on their Win7 x64 box and it works for them too. So it must be you. :P

I guess then that you don't have a possible solution for this problem I'm now having then? or a workaround of some sort? x)

Compiled the script and sent it to a friend of mine. Didn't work for him either =/

zvvyt,

Alas, no. As it works for me and an MVP on Win7 x64 I cannot really offer any more assistance, sorry. :(

M23

Edit: You could go back to the old script I posted at the beginning. ;)

Edit 2: Another MVP cannot get it to run on several systems - including Win7 x64 - so I am now even more confused. :wacko:

Baah, alright. I totally understand that :)

Yea, I guess that's how it look at the moment.

Well, this actually makes me a bit "happy" that it's not only I and my machine that's having trouble! :D

Did try to run my computer in safe mode aswell, in case I had another program running which caused this, but it did still behave the same.

IF you come up with something or just "hears" something about this, would you mind posting here again or send me a PM about it? :)

Most thankful for both your time and effort with this case! You guys are doing an excellent job on the forums!

First of all: Sorry for doubleposting!

And second: I just got the problem solved myself.

What I did was I created a hidden inputbox by GUICtrlCreateInput which is automatically focused when the child GUI/"scroll gui" is focused. Then I just had it update the visually shown inputbox in the parent window as soon as its content was changed, so it's more or less like a hidden mirror of the shown inputbox!

Just felt like telling in case someone else finds this thread with a problem similar to mine =)

Best regards,

zvvyt

      I'm using a graphic button in a form and I want to change it to another image when the cursor is hovered over the button. 
      I've got that working but the button flickers constantly.
      Here's my script:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> ; create borderless, chromeless form into which image will be placed $Form1 = GUICreate("Welcome", 500, 500, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_SYSMENU,$WS_POPUP), 0) ; place image file in form $Pic1 = GUICtrlCreatePic("Welcometest.bmp", 0, 0, 500, 500) ; needed for some reason GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE) ; display "Click to Continue" button $C2CBtn = GUICtrlCreatePic("C2C_off.bmp", 300, 300) ; display all of the above as a unit GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $ggci = GUIGetCursorInfo($Form1) If $ggci[4] = $C2CBtn Then GUICtrlSetImage($C2CBtn,"C2C_on.bmp") Else GUICtrlSetImage($C2CBtn,"C2C_off.bmp") EndIf $nMsg = GuiGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $C2CBtn Exit EndSwitch Sleep(100) WEnd Resulting GUI

      Hovering the cursor over the button changes it as desired. Clicking on the button exits the demo (also desired).  But it flickers constantly. Not desired! ;-)
      The attached button images and background image are all 24b bmp files. The actual image used in place of the white box consists of high quality text and graphics so I can't use JPG format.

      Hi,
      I am still really new with AutoIT.  We are using it to automate logging into web sites and I have encountered problems with focus.  The target web page is configured to put the cursor into the first text field (username) when the page is loaded, and when I run the AutoIT script, which does the log in seems like it is just not starting where I expect it to be.  
      I have been kind of using ToolTip() to kind of help with debugging, but now I am wondering if the calls to ToolTip() are causing the focus to be messed up.  
      For example, at least visually, when the ToolTip() is called, I can see the cursor disappear from the web page text field and they when I do anything that is supposed to send keystrokes, they are going off somwhere else ("never-neverland").
      But when I remove some of the ToolTip() calls, it works correctly.
      So the questions I have are:
      1) Do the ToolTip() calls interfere with/change where the focus on the target page are?
      2) In general, what are the "rules" for where ToolTip can be used "safely" (== doesn't interfere with focus)?
      Thanks,
      Jim

      Good morning everyone

      I was playing a little bit with "Screen Capture" UDF, and I was trying to make a "Window" capture, but, since I made a GUI which through I fire the event "Capture", my GUI is captured as well, and I don't want to
      This is the line of code that makes the capture:
       
      _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd($strScreenCaptureFileName, $objActiveWindow, 0, 0, -1, -1, False) And these are the lines of code which select the "active" window:
       
      Local $objCurrentWindow = 9999 If _IsPressed("01") Then $objCurrentWindow = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]") If $objCurrentWindow <> $objMyGUI Then $objActiveWindow = $objCurrentWindow EndIf EndIf Sorry If I made stupid mistakes
      Thanks in advance.

      Francesco
