The Favorites Menu

31 posts in this topic

(The title of this example was originally "The Shell/Custom Favorites/Programs Menus".)

TheFavoritesMenu_zps2e52cc56.jpg

This is an implementation of the Shell Favorites and Programs menus with the IShellMenu interface.

The purpose of this menu system is to create a popup menu from a directory structure consisting of subfolders and internet or program links. The menu will look like the Favorites menu in Internet or Windows Explorer (as it looked when XP SP2 was released in August 2004).

The IShellMenu interface can generally be used to create a menu from a directory structure. The menu items will be supplied with the same icons as the link files and they will be supplied with tooltips too. When you click a menu item the command associated with the internet or program link will be executed.

The Favorites and Programs menus will create popup menus from the directory structures given by $CSIDL_FAVORITES, $CSIDL_PROGRAMS, $CSIDL_STARTMENU, $CSIDL_COMMON_PROGRAMS, $CSIDL_COMMON_STARTMENU.

The Custom Favorites and Custom Programs menus can be used to create custom popup menus from custom directory structures.

Note that the context (right click) menu is working in the Favorites menu.

Update #4 2014-05-03: AutoIt 3.3.10

This example was created under 3.3.8 and based on APIConstants.au3 and WinAPIEx.au3 by Yashied.

The original example runs under 3.3.10 without any changes at all. But a lot of unused constants and functions are included.

In 3.3.10 the two UDFs are divided into several smaller UDFs. This makes it much easier to just include, what is needed. This update only includes the necessary UDFs. You find the new and old zip in bottom of the post.

Update #3 2012-11-06: Programs menus

Added the Programs menus from the directory structures given by $CSIDL_PROGRAMS, $CSIDL_STARTMENU, $CSIDL_COMMON_PROGRAMS, $CSIDL_COMMON_STARTMENU.

To create a menu like the "All Programs" menu copy the two "Start Menu" folders (your own + "All Users") to the "Custom Programs 1" folder and overwrite the existing "Start Menu" folder. Then select the menu item "Custom Programs | Custom Programs 1".

Update #2 2012-11-03: Custom Favorites menus

If you are creating an AutoIt program and want to add a custom Favorites menu with relevant internet links all you have to do is to create a directory structure, add the subfolders (optional) and links and call the ShowFavsProgsMenu() function with a path to the directory. And you will get a menu that looks like and works like the Favorites menu in Internet Explorer.

You can see two custom Favorites menus in the examples.

Added two small directory structures to the zip to be used for the custom Favorites menus.

Fixed an error: OleInitialize() is used to initialize COM in stead of CoInitialize() (necessary to make the Copy command in the context menu work).

Update #1 2012-11-01: Window procedure

Because a popup menu like the Favorites menu is modal, it's necessary to use some kind of a window procedure to catch the menu messages. When it's a popup menu it should be enough to have the window procedure running while the popup menu is displayed.

In the original scripts the window procedure was created with these commands:

$hNewWinProc = DllCallbackRegister( "NewWindowProc", "int", "hwnd;uint;wparam;lparam" )        ; New window procedure
$hOldWinProc = _WinAPI_SetWindowLong( $hGui, $GWL_WNDPROC, DllCallbackGetPtr( $hNewWinProc ) ) ; Old window procedure
The procedure was started in the main script in the example and was running as long as the script was running.

In this update the menu messages is catched with a hook procedure:

$hFavMenuMsg = DllCallbackRegister( "FavMenuMsg", "long", "int;wparam;lparam" )
$hFavMenuMsgHook = _WinAPI_SetWindowsHookEx( $WH_MSGFILTER, DllCallbackGetPtr( $hFavMenuMsg ), 0, _WinAPI_GetCurrentThreadId() )
; $WH_MSGFILTER installs a hook procedure that monitors messages generated as a
; result of an input event in a dialog box, message box, menu, or scroll bar.
The procedure is started in the bottom of the ShowFavoritesMenu() function immediately after the Favorites menu is displayed on the screen, and the procedure is stopped when the menu disappears from the screen. Either because the menu is cancelled or a selection is made.

(If you comment out these commands in ShellFavoritesMenu.au3 the Favorites menu will still show up. But the submenus will not be expanded if you keep the mouse steady over a submenu or use the arrow keys.)

This hook procedure is much better than the original window procedure. It's much easier to integrate the Favorites menu in other programs when it isn't depending on a "global" window procedure.

A "global" window procedure can also have some influence on the GUI (at least on XP, I think it's better on 7). In the original example you saw it clearly when the GUI lost focus. When the GUI got focus back the upper line of the edit box could be behind the toolbar. This is not a problem with a hook procedure only running when the Favorites menu is displayed.

Added an example with a menu. Zip updated.

This is an implementation of the Favorites menu primary with the IShellMenu interface but several other interfaces are used as well.

The main function:

EndFunc

Example

The zip contains the example as you can see in the picture. There are two versions of the example: A version based on a toolbar (ExShellFavsProgsMenus.au3), and a version based on a menu bar (ExShellFavsProgsMenus2.au3). The purpose of the text box is just to have something to put in the window.

The zip contains also the ShellFavsProgsMenus.au3 UDF.

This zip contains the original scripts for 3.3.8. You need APIConstants.au3 and WinAPIEx.au3 by Yashied. The UDFs are not included in the zip. The zip can be opened with 7-Zip.

ShellFavsProgsMenus.zip

This zip contains the updated scripts for 3.3.10. Only a matter of UDFs. These scripts will not run under 3.3.8.

TheFavoritesMenu.7z

Testet on XP 32 bit and Win 7 32/64 bit.

JScript, Added an example with a menu. Thank you for the stars.

The "global" window procedure that runs all the time is replaced with a hook procedure that only runs when the Favorites menu is displayed.

This is fantastic :thumbsup: , I searched for such a menu for years and and always planned to programm my own

I have some questions for a bit more of control:

- Is it possible to better control the menu, like selecting items programmaticly and determine the current path ( especially when entering submenus... )

- It it possible to add own entrys directly in such a menu ( for example a recent folders entry or favourites )

 

Thanks in advance

Bluesmaster, The purpose of this menu system is to create a popup menu from a directory structure consisting of subfolders and internet or program links. The menu will look like the Favorites menu in Internet or Windows Explorer (as they looked when XP SP2 was released in August 2004).

To control the menu you need menu handles. But menu handles are generated internally and you get new handles every time the menu is shown. So there is no easy way to control the menu.

If you add new links and subfolders to the directory structure they will be shown as new menu items and submenus. Because the entire directory structure is read each time the menu is shown you can do it dynamically.

This menu cannot replace an entire menu system. But it can be used as a part of a menu system to create a menu similar to the Favorites menu or Programs menu.

I'm using the code in this OpenGL example to create a Links menu with links to information.

Lars.

Hello Lars,

I am glad you care for this after one year has passed. I am planning to transform this into a more general menu for moving and browsing files fast and efficent.

Just started, and its quite promising. Main hurdle is to know, the path corresponding to the object currently selected by the user.

Figured out, that the menu is represented by a "toolbar32" but I failed to get the handles :ermm: .

And even if I could get them, the other task is to get the full path of the item and not just its name in one of the submenus.

Here some attempts to get infos from the menu ( all failed )

    local $hPopupWin
    $oIMenuPopup.GetWindow( $hPopupWin )

or

$oIShellMenu.GetShellFolder( $hMenu, $hWnd, $SMSET_TOP )

or

$hToolbar = ControlGetHandle(  WinGetHandle( "[CLASS:BaseBar" ) , "" , "[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:1]" )

Can you please give me  some small tips I really got stuck for a  day now.

 

Here is a first snippet showing the direction of my attempt ( please ignore the missing error-handling for now )
ContextBrowser.au3

Bluesmaster, I'm pretty sure you can get the path of the selected item if you implement the IShellMenuCallback interface and look for SMC_SFSELECTITEM notifications. From the documentation of SMC_SFSELECTITEM notifications: "The user has selected the item specified by the accompanying SMDATA structure." From this SMDATA structure you can get all the information you need.

I have not looked at your code yet, but the project seems to be quite interesting.

Regards Lars.

Thanks for your answer. I will try. But I really struggle with those IInterfaces... I never really understood the difference to the "objectCreate"-method and it seems nobody can really explain it to me.

I can get the "$IID_IShellMenuCallback =  "{4CA300A1-9B8D-11d1-8B22-00C04FD918D0}"  but how to get those mysterious vTables. For me it seems like google fortune and I had no in this case.

There seem to be professional solutions like TypeLibInspector ( '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent> title=""> ) but I never get that to run, and my question was never answerd.

Where do you get your vTables and clsids from?

 

regards Blues

Microsoft provides info. It's documented on MSDN. If web page lacks info about v-table order or identifiers it wouldn't miss to tell you in which file those definitions are. The files are part of Microsoft SDKs.

In case you don't program for Windows and don't use Visual Studio and don't have SDK then you can allways google, for example IShellMenuCallback ReactOS or maybe IShellMenuCallback Wine and get definition from there. Former will very quickly lead you to http://doxygen.reactos.org/d4/d3f/shobjidl_8idl_source.html where you can see definition for your interface and list of functions in, of course, v-table order together with parameters definitions.

Bluesmaster, Here is an implementation of IShellMenuCallback. It's not completely trivial. It'll write the paths in Scite console.

Download IShellMenuCallback.au3 below.

Edit ShellFavsProgsMenus.au3 from the the zip in the first post.

Include IShellMenuCallback.au3:

; Dynamic Link Libraries
Global Const $dllOle32    = DllOpen( "ole32.dll" )
Global Const $dllShell32  = DllOpen( "shell32.dll" )
Global Const $dllUser32   = DllOpen( "user32.dll" )

#include "IShellMenuCallback.au3" ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Comment out this line:

;Global Const $NULL = 0x0000

Comment out this section:

#cs
; IShellFolder Interface
Global Const $sIID_IShellFolder = "{000214E6-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"
Global Const $tRIID_IShellFolder = CLSIDFromString( $sIID_IShellFolder )
Global Const $dtag_IShellFolder = _
    "ParseDisplayName hresult(hwnd;ptr;wstr;dword*;ptr*;dword*);" & _
    "EnumObjects hresult(hwnd;dword;ptr*);" & _
    "BindToObject hresult(ptr;ptr;struct*;ptr*);" & _
    "BindToStorage hresult(ptr;ptr;ptr;ptr*);" & _
    "CompareIDs hresult(lparam;ptr;ptr);" & _
    "CreateViewObject hresult(hwnd;struct*;ptr*);" & _
    "GetAttributesOf hresult(uint;struct*;ulong*);" & _
    "GetUIObjectOf hresult(hwnd;uint;struct*;struct*;uint*;ptr*);" & _
    "GetDisplayNameOf hresult(ptr;uint;struct*);" & _
    "SetNameOf hresult(hwnd;ptr;wstr;dword;ptr*);"
#ce

Comment out a line and add a line:

;If $oIShellMenu.Initialize( $NULL, -1, $ANCESTORDEFAULT, BitOR( $SMINIT_TOPLEVEL, $SMINIT_VERTICAL ) ) <> $S_OK Then Return SetError(2,0,0)
If $oIShellMenu.Initialize( $pIShellMenuCallback, -1, $ANCESTORDEFAULT, BitOR( $SMINIT_TOPLEVEL, $SMINIT_VERTICAL ) ) <> $S_OK Then Return SetError(2,0,0)

Open and run one of the examples in Scite and you'll see the paths in the console.

V-table: I get the information from the same sources as trancexx.

Regards Lars.

IShellMenuCallback.au3

You can replace oIShellMenuCallback_CallbackSM in IShellMenuCallback.au3 with this:

Func oIShellMenuCallback_CallbackSM( $pSelf, $psmd, $uMsg, $wParam, $lParam )
    ;ConsoleWrite( "oIShellMenuCallback_CallbackSM" & @CRLF )
    Switch $uMsg
        Case $SMC_SFSELECTITEM
            Local $tSMDATA = DllStructCreate( $tagSMDATA, $psmd ), $sPath
            Local $pPidl = ILClone( DllStructGetData( $tSMDATA, "pidlFolder" ) )
            $pPidl = ILCombine( $pPidl, DllStructGetData( $tSMDATA, "pidlItem" ) )
            SHGetPathFromIDList( $pPidl, $sPath )
            _WinAPI_CoTaskMemFree( $pPidl )
            ConsoleWrite( $sPath & @CRLF )
            Return $S_FALSE
        Case Else
            Return $S_FALSE
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

Add these two functions to the bottom of the file:

Func ILClone( $pidl )
    Local $aRet = DllCall( $dllShell32, "ptr", "ILClone", "ptr", $pidl )
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Return $aRet[0]
EndFunc

Func ILCombine( $pidlAbs, $pidlRel )
    Local $aRet = DllCall( $dllShell32, "ptr", "ILCombine", "ptr", $pidlAbs, "ptr", $pidlRel )
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Return $aRet[0]
EndFunc

Then you can delete the following:

Global Const $dllShlwapi = DllOpen( "shlwapi.dll" )

Global $iIShellFolder = 0, $apIShellFolder[1], $aoIShellFolder[1]

Func StrRetToBuf( $pSTRRET, $pidl, ByRef $sBuf, $iBuf = 512 )
    Local $aRet = DllCall( $dllShlwapi, "long", "StrRetToBufW", "ptr", $pSTRRET, "ptr", $pidl, "wstr", $sBuf, "uint", $iBuf )
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    $sBuf = $aRet[3]
    Return $aRet[0]
EndFunc

Hello Lars,

Sorry for my late respose. Its very hard to find time at the moment. Your code is amazing. And it works :)

Honestly I would never had been able to implement this. I will need some time to develop the full context-menu-explorer.

I will post the result here. And again: Thank you so much

Hi Lars,

I found some time to continue working on the "context-menu-explorer" based on your "ShowFavsProgsMenu". And...I am desperate.

My purpose is to merge 2 of those menus in 1 menu to augment the first menu with some "most recent folders" ... and so  on.
I build an example that should merge "c:" and "c:users" but they popup separatly, or alone or do not even popup whatever I try.

The code is extra unreadable :sweating:  because I condensed it a lot for overview reasons. But its more a  question of basic understanding.

In Point 1 ( line 90 ) I create a menu. In Point 2 ( line 120 ) I create a second one...I could write a thousand words, I think you know what I mean.

Can you please give me  some small advice again?

Why on earth do you think you can put menus together in that way? What you can do is to add a Recent Folders menu to the static part of the menu. The menu you are using in SetMenu. You can do this with the usual functions in GuiMenu.au3. Add the folders to the static menu before you call SetMenu.

Sorry that was just a guess. I thought if one can append it to another menu, then the purpose of this must be to append multiple menus.

Are you absolutly sure this is not possible? If so I would have to find a workaround with the static part of the menu of course, but I see some disadvantages.

However you are the expert and I trust your word and start implementing the static solution.

Thanks.

Hello LarsJ,

Do you think those menus will work for virtual folder too? ( like the control panel  = )

I cannot try because I dunno how to get the PIDL of such a folder as:

$r = DllCall( "shell32.dll" , "uint", "SHILCreateFromPath", "wstr",   $targetFolder  , "ptr*", 0, "dword*", 0 )

only works with paths. And virtual folders only got CLSIDS as far as I know.

Do you know a CLSID > PIDL method? Or any other suggestion?

Thank you

PS: CLSID for control panel:

ShellExecute( "explorer" , "shell:::{7be9d83c-a729-4d97-b5a7-1b7313c39e0a}" )

_WinAPI_ShellGetKnownFolderIDList will get the PIDL.

      I'm having a hard time figuring out how to make a menu without any tab stops for the buttons.
      I made a shell menu for BIOS flashing in WinPE and in it I don't want *any* buttons to be tab stopped. If I try to use GUICtrlSetStyle to remove the tab stops from all the buttons, the first button declared in the menu ends up the default (so the user could press the spacebar and the button is activated).
      Melba23 posted some code like below a long time ago in this post but it seems to do the same thing as GUICtrlSetStyle does.
      Any tips/help is appreciated.

      Hi all. I am creating an app that runs a program with the admin privileges using the shellexecute's run as verb, but what my problem is, that no matter what I use to launch the program, it doesn't quite work like the run dialog would (certain programs don't get found, etc.). I've tried using the explorer.exe and passing the program to it, that is unreliable and opens documents folder sometimes instead, I've tried using the @comspec /c and that works better, but still some of the programs aren't being found that would be with the run dialog e.g., if I do @comspec /c diskpart it won't find it, I've even tried setting the working dir, but still no luck. I also tried passing commandline params to C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,#61, but no luck. can anyone help me what way to go in order to be able to launch programs in the run dialog style? is there a function in winapi that run dialog uses that I could use as well? Or what would be the best way to go about this? Any help much appreciated.

      I want to listen for certain windows events like window open/closed. After reading the help I think I need to use ObjCreate('shell.application') and ObjEvent with that object to create/register a listener. The problem is I don't know what interface or events (i.e. the specific event names) are available for the listener. I tried searching MSDN but it is a labyrinth and I'm not that familiar with the programming frameworks/models used by Windows, and all the examples seem to refer to compiled code using .NET or some other api.
      Can any1 point me in the right direction? Also is using COM objects considered the 'modern' way to do this, or should I be using some other framework/resources?
