[CLOSED] Get the GUI size when all controls are visible

Recommended Posts

FireFox mentioned wanting to make a UDF out of this.

It almost sounds like he wants to create a new "GuiCreate" that will automatically select the correct size of the gui based on where the controls are.

Such as if later you add new controls to the script, the gui would auto-resize to fit them all without adjusting the code.

Pretty cool idea if that's correct, and the answer would be some pretty difficult

and complicated mathematical calculations.

Still just guessing though.

The easiest way I could think of to accomplish this would be to create an array of all the controls, then run through the array and grab the lowest X value, lowest Y value, highest X+control width value, and highest Y+control height value. But I believe it's already been mentioned as being not fast enough.

Well I was still getting it wrong.

After your suggestion of what the OP might be trying to do, I though it was taking as parameters

"buttons|2,edit|1,input|1,label|4" or something similar, and the calculations would be to arrange 2 buttons

1 edit, 1 input and 4 labels neatly into a gui and create it.

Like when you don't really care how they are arranged so long as they're all there type of thing.

Thanks for pointing out what I said before. I'm not making an UDF for what you said, you will know when I will post it.

If it was only for my script, of course I would know the ctrl positions and this topic would not have any sense.

Anyway, thanks for your help.

Might be useful:

Func ControlsGetMinMaxPos($hWnd)
    Local $iPosX_Min = 0xFFFF, $iPosX_Max, $iPosY_Min = 0xFFFF, $iPosY_Max
    Local $hChild = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWnd, $GW_CHILD)
    Do
        $aRect = ControlGetPos($hChild, "", 0)
        If $aRect[0] < $iPosX_Min Then $iPosX_Min = $aRect[0]
        If $aRect[1] < $iPosY_Min Then $iPosY_Min = $aRect[1]
        If $aRect[0] +  $aRect[2] > $iPosX_Max Then $iPosX_Max = $aRect[0] +  $aRect[2]
        If $aRect[1] +  $aRect[3] > $iPosY_Max Then $iPosY_Max = $aRect[1] +  $aRect[3]
        $hChild = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hChild, $GW_HWNDNEXT)
    Until Not $hChild
    Local $aMinMax[4] = [$iPosX_Min, $iPosY_Min, $iPosX_Max, $iPosY_Max]
    Return $aMinMax
EndFunc

@UEZ

Thank you.

I will test the speed between the two functions given.

I will definitely use the function of UEZ.

Here is my version of jdelaney's function :

Func _WindowGetBoundCtrls($hWnd)
Local $aWndClassList = StringSplit(WinGetClassList($hWnd), @CRLF)
Local $sPriorClass, $iCounter = 1, $aBoundCtrls[2] = [0, 0], $aCtrlPos

If Not $aWndClassList[0] Then Return $aBoundCtrls
$sPriorClass = $aWndClassList[1]

For $iList = 1 To $aWndClassList[0] - 1
If $aWndClassList[$iList] <> $sPriorClass Then
$iCounter = 1
$sPriorClass = $aWndClassList[$iList]
EndIf

$aCtrlPos = ControlGetPos($hWnd, "", "[CLASSNN:" & $aWndClassList[$iList] & $iCounter & "]")

If $aCtrlPos[0] + $aCtrlPos[2] > $aBoundCtrls[0] Then $aBoundCtrls[0] = $aCtrlPos[0] + $aCtrlPos[2]
If $aCtrlPos[1] + $aCtrlPos[3] > $aBoundCtrls[1] Then $aBoundCtrls[1] = $aCtrlPos[1] + $aCtrlPos[3]

$iCounter += 1
Next

Return $aBoundCtrls
EndFunc   ;==>_WindowGetBoundCtrls

      Hi AutoIters!
      Here is my new UDF about GUIs: it's an enhanced mixture of Advanced InputBox (deprecated) and KODA Parser (deprecated), with additional functions.
      What you can do with it:
      Parse KODA files and directly create GUIs (_GUIUtils_CreateFromKODA) Parse a simple JSON form definition to simply create advanced InputBoxes with any amount/type of input controls (_GUIUtils_CreateFromJSON) Created GUIs are returned as Scripting.Dictionary objects, and you have helper functions to access GUIs controls by their names (_GUIUtils_HWnd, _GUIUtils_CtrlID, _GUIUtils_HCtrl ...) A function that can make a GUI created from KODA/JSON (defined by it's $oForm object) and make it a modal InputDialogBox (just like InputBox, but returns all entered data as Scripting.Dictionary object) Functions are documented, and there are some examples.
      Consider this UDF as beta, but since I'm currently using it in a small commercial project, it should become production ready in near future.
      To always get the latest code version, get it from Github (more up to date than this topic).
      Update 04/02/2020:
      New simple application example Fixed focused control handling in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Reset input values before returning from _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed CloseOnEsc in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed Input not reset Fixed all ListBox items are selected Project now on GitHub https://github.com/matwachich/autoit-guiutils/
      Update 05/02/2020:
      Support for nodate for Date and Time input controls (pass null value) New handling of focused control _GUIUtils_InputDialog: Now, you can specify the focused control in $oInitialData by setting "controlName:focus" = True Updated documentation of _GUIUtils_InputDialog Update 07/02/2020:
      Bug corrected when setting Data input control Added: abillity to read a single input control New functions (_GUIUtils_GetInputs, _GUIUtils_WriteInputs), documentation completion. Readme file and screenshots on Github Page

      Hello forum,
      I want to create a program with multiple menus and many elements inside. The problem is my way of doing this and below I have an example of how I do these menus.
      I know it's a bad way of doing them as using this method for more elements and menus cause big flickering.
       
      Can someone please help me with some tips of optimizing this or tell me another way of creating that menus with many elements without cause flickering? From a long time ago I still try to solve this but without any results, just small improvements.
      Many thanks for everyone.
