GUICtrlCreatePic strange behaviour

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm trying to displaya picture on a gui but it doesn't work if I make some GDI+ operations just before creating the gui:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#Include <Misc.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

Local $GUIimg_title,$GUIwidth,$GUIheight,$GUILeft,$GUITop

Local $filename = FileOpenDialog("Select image", @ScriptDir, "Image (*.jpg;*.bmp)", 3)

_GDIPlus_Startup()

Local $imagefromfile = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($filename) ;Create an image object based on a file
Local $GUIwidth = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($imagefromfile)
Local $GUIheight = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($imagefromfile)


; Display image
$hBitmap_GUI = GUICreate("", $GUIwidth, $GUIheight)
$hPic = GUICtrlCreatePic($filename, 0, 0)

GUISetState()
_GDIPlus_Shutdown()


While 1

Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE;, $hCancel_Button
Exit
;~
EndSwitch

WEnd

Instead it works if I remove GDI+ ... Can't understand why!

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#Include <Misc.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
Local $GUIimg_title,$GUIwidth,$GUIheight,$GUILeft,$GUITop

Local $filename = FileOpenDialog("Select image", @ScriptDir, "Image (*.jpg;*.bmp)", 3)

;~ _GDIPlus_Startup()

;~ Local $imagefromfile = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($filename) ;Create an image object based on a file
;~ Local $GUIwidth = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($imagefromfile)
;~ Local $GUIheight = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($imagefromfile)
;~ _GDIPlus_Shutdown()


; Display image
;$hBitmap_GUI = GUICreate("", $GUIwidth, $GUIheight)
$hBitmap_GUI = GUICreate("", 800, 800); <---- had to use fixed size...
$hPic = GUICtrlCreatePic($filename, 1, 1)

GUISetState()


While 1

Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE;, $hCancel_Button
Exit
;~
EndSwitch

WEnd

:huh2:

Any hints?

Not sure why the GDI+ stuff is causing a problem, but if all you need it for is to get the dimensions of the file, you could do it this way.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
Local $GUIimg_title, $GUIwidth, $GUIheight, $GUILeft, $GUITop

Local $filename = FileOpenDialog("Select image", @ScriptDir, "Image (*.jpg;*.bmp)", 3)

;~ _GDIPlus_Startup()

;~ Local $imagefromfile = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($filename) ;Create an image object based on a file
;~ Local $GUIwidth = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($imagefromfile)
;~ Local $GUIheight = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($imagefromfile)

;~ _GDIPlus_Shutdown()

; Display image
$aDimensions = StringRegExp(_FileGetProperty($filename, "height"), "(d+)", 2)
$GUIheight = $aDimensions[0]
$aDimensions = StringRegExp(_FileGetProperty($filename, "width"), "(d+)", 2)
$GUIwidth = $aDimensions[0]
$hBitmap_GUI = GUICreate("", $GUIwidth, $GUIheight)
$hPic = GUICtrlCreatePic($filename, 0, 0, 0, 0)

I used the RegEx because the results on my computer returns ### pixels, where the ### is the dimension size and this will strip off anything not a number.

This works on Windows 7, XP does not have this information available, but does have the Dimensions property you could work with.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

It's because you do not dispose the image and is still in use. Try this:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#Include <Misc.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

Local $GUIimg_title,$GUIwidth,$GUIheight,$GUILeft,$GUITop

Local $filename = FileOpenDialog("Select image", @ScriptDir, "Image (*.jpg;*.bmp)", 3)

_GDIPlus_Startup()

Local $imagefromfile = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($filename) ;Create an image object based on a file
Local $GUIwidth = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($imagefromfile)
Local $GUIheight = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($imagefromfile)
_GDIPlus_ImageDispose($imagefromfile)
_GDIPlus_Shutdown()

; Display image
$hBitmap_GUI = GUICreate("", $GUIwidth, $GUIheight)
$hPic = GUICtrlCreatePic($filename, 0, 0, $GUIwidth, $GUIheight)

      UEZ has kindly provided me with code that rotates an image per a line: see here
      Because I want to trim a photograph after rotation, I need to crop the photo. I wrote code which calls _GDIPlus_GraphicsSetClipRect() to do this, but it places spurious stuff in the corners: see 2.jpg attached.
      I want only the trimmed photo to show.
      The original jpeg is also attached.
      The arguments to _GDIPlus_GraphicsSetClipRect() come from solving 2 simultaneous equations: if a and b are the width and height of the original photo, find x and y, the width and height of the rotated and cropped rectangle;
      a = x cos(ang) + y sin(ang)
      b = x sin(ang) + y cos(ang)
      My solution is:
      x = (b * sin(ang) - a*cos(ang)) / (sin(ang)^2 - (cos(ang)^2)
      y = (b * cos(ang) - a * sin(ang)) / (cos(ang)^2 - sin(ang)^2)
      To try to get a handle on the problem, I have temporarily added in several lines in Case $btn. In 2.jpg, you can see that the rectangle bounding the area to be retained is in the wrong place.
      The code is:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt('MustDeclareVars',1) Global Const $MK_SHIFT = 0x4 Global Const $MK_CONTROL = 0x8 Global Const $fPi = ACos(-1), $fPi2 = $fPi / 2, $fRad = 180 / $fPi GUIRegisterMsg($WM_MOUSEWHEEL, "WM_MOUSEWHEEL") GUIRegisterMsg($WM_PAINT,'WM_PAINT') Global $gX0=10,$gX1=580,$gY0,$gY1,$gForm1,$glblPic,$iLW,$iLH,$iW,$iH Global $ghCanvas,$ghImage,$ghPen,$gGraphicPic,$ghBitmap,$ghMatrix,$ghImageClone,$ghGfxClone Global Const $kDegToRads = 3.14159/180 main() Func main() $gForm1 = GUICreate("Form1", 623, 601, 192, 114) $iLW = 589 $iLH = 500 $glblPic = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 8, 8, $iLW, $iLH) Local $btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Rotate", 472, 560, 65, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Local $oldY0,$oldY1,$fAngle _GDIPlus_Startup() $ghPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate(0xFF999999,2) $ghImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile('H:\b\pergola.jpg') Local $h = GUICtrlGetHandle($glblPic) $gGraphicPic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($h) $gY0 = 400 $gY1 = 400 $iW = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($ghImage) $iH = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($ghImage) $ghBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromScan0($iW, $iH) $ghCanvas = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($ghBitmap) $ghMatrix = _GDIPlus_MatrixCreate() ; Loop until the user exits.

      Here a small tool I wrote to update my Sysinternal tools collection without the need to download always the whole package or visiting the site to check for updates. I know that there are several tools available (also some tools written in AutoIt) but here another one for the collection. It was good exercise for me to code it.
       
       
        
       
       
      Some files from cannot be downloaded although they are visible on the web site!
       
      Here the download link of the source code only: AutoIt Sysinternal Tools Synchronizer v0.99.1 build 2017-10-23 beta.7z  (1353 downloads previously)
      -=> Requires AutoIt version 3.3.13.20 or higher / tested on Win8.1 real machine and some VMs: Win7 / Vista / Win10
       
      Compiled exe only: @MediaFire
       
      Just select the Sysinternal Tools folder or create one and press the synchronize button to download the selected items. Click on AutoIt label (near to left upper corner) to open menu.
       
      Special thanks to LarsJ, Melba23 and mesale0077 for their help. 
       
      I've still some ideas to implement which are more gimmick related, so it is not finished yet...
      If you want to add your language please check out #Region Language. Thanks. 
       
      Please report any bug or if you have any suggestions.

      Howdy, this is my first post, massive fan of autoit. 
      I've searched and tried and I would just like people who are better at this than me to let me know if this is even a thing.

      I'd like to perform just a variable. For example, it would be. *see inserted code*
      So what i'm wanting is, create the constant $test, and that variable would be what is followed after the = . Then perform the _FileCreate. Then perform the variable.  Logically or in my head rather.. That variable is declared and is equal to what it is set to above, therefore just placing the variable plainly in the script, it should be equal to what it was declared as.  So what am I doing wrong, and or how can I have autoit just perform the variable.  

       
      #include <File.au3> Const $test = FileWriteLine(@DesktopDir & "\Log.txt", @CRLF ) _FileCreate(@DesktopDir & "\Log.txt") $test

      In my code, the mouse wheel causes the line to move up and down. It does move down to where the picture is, but is not seen there. This can be observed by scrolling down to the picture, and then up again: the line reappears as expected.
      How can I get the line to show on the picture? This seems to be a matter of transparency, but I have not found a way of getting the background of $graphLine to be transparent.
      The code is now:

      Do I really need GDI+, or is there a simpler way? My code creates Graphics (canvases?) from labels. Is this legitimate? I have found MSDN to be un-helpful in learning GDI+. Is there a better learning tool?

      Here's a fun tool I put together.  It's a Plasma sandbox.  More features to come.

      This page was a useful resource for learning about this kind of Plasma implementation.
      Warning! Not Epileptic Friendly (probably)! Use at own Risk!
      I tried to curve the "default/initial" Plasma patterns so they aren't too erratic.  That doesn't mean you can't alter the Plasmas to be more erratic.  If you are sensitive to flashing colors and lights, use due caution.
