Windows 8 simple start menu

1 post in this topic

Hello,

I really do like windows 8 and how you have to get to the start menu. I created a small little app that allows you to open the start menu, search for something, open the run command, and log off, lock, shutdown or restart your pc.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <WinAPI.au3>



$main = GUICreate("", 150, 265, 5, 560) ; $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_LAYERED)
GUISetBkColor(0x0094FF)
; _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($main, 0x0000F4, 100)


GUISetState(@SW_Show)


$Input1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 10, 95, 130, 20)
$button1 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Start Menu", 10, 20, 130, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x3FAFFF)
$button2 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Search", 10, 125, 130, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x3FAFFF)
$button3 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Run", 10, 160, 130, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x3FAFFF)
$button4 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Log Off...", 10, 220, 110, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x3FAFFF)
$button8 = GuiCtrlCreateButton(">", 110, 220, 30, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x3FAFFF)


; _AddHorzSep(10, 40, 290)
   _AddHorzSep(10, 65, 130)
   _AddHorzSep(10, 205, 130)



While 1
Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

Case $button1
; Run("Explorer.exe C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs")
Send("{LWin}") ; <<<<<< Start Menu
Exit

Case $button2
Run("C:\Windows\System32\explorer.exe search-ms:") ; <<<<<<< Windows Search
Sleep(1000)
Send(GuiCtrlRead($Input1))
Exit

Case $button3
Send("#r") ; <<<<<<< Windows Run
Sleep(1000)
Send("!a{delete}")
Send(GuiCtrlRead($Input1))
Sleep(1000)
Send("{Enter}")
Exit

 Case $button4 ; <<<<<<< Logoff
$msg1 = msgbox(4, "", "Are you sure you want to Logoff")
If $msg1 = 6 Then
  Shutdown(0)
Else
  Exit
  ;GuiSetState(@SW_HIDE)
EndIf

Case $button8
Second()


EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Second()
$second = GUICreate("", 100, 130, 150, 721, $WS_POPUP) ;, $WS_EX_LAYERED)
GUISetBkColor(0x0094FF)
; _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($second, 0x0000F4, 200)


Local $button5 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Lock", 10, 10, 75, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x3FAFFF)
Local $button6 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Restart", 10, 50, 75, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x3FAFFF)
Local $button7 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Shutdown", 10, 90, 75, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x3FAFFF)



GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

 Case $button5  ; <<<<<< Lock
Run("rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation") 

Case $button6  ; <<<<<< Restart
$msg2 = msgbox(4, "", "Are you sure you want to Restart")
If $msg2 = 6 Then
  Shutdown(2)
Else
  Exit
  ; GuiSetState(@SW_HIDE)
  EndIf   

 Case $button7 ; <<<<<<<< Shutdown
$msg3 = msgbox(4, "", "Are you sure you want to Shutdown")
If $msg3 = 6 Then
  Shutdown(1)
Else
  Exit
  ;GuiSetState()
EndIf


EndSwitch
WEnd

EndFunc


Func _AddHorzSep($iX, $iY, $iW)

    GUICtrlCreateLabel("", $iX, $iY, $iW, 1)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x000000)


EndFunc   ;==>_AddHorzSep

Please feel free to change it :)

Thanks

      Dear AutoIT Community.
      I am currently working on a program that will display lots of images in a scroll down GUI.
      I create the GUI based on the number of images, which works fine.
      But all images I place using GuiCtrlCreatePic above a threshold of around 32000 pixels (cant say exactly) are placed at negative locations and finally will reach 0 again
      and will then populate on top of the images placed there before.
      For $i = 1 To $Images[0] ; Get picture dimensions $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ImgRep & $Images[$i]) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) ; Resize & place images in GUI $Pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic($ImgRep & $Images[$i], $Spacer, Round($yPos, 0), $MaxImgWidth, $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX)) $yPos = $yPos + $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX) + $Spacer $log = $log & "|" & $yPos $currentlut = $Images[1] Next I have found a limit at 32767 pixels for some GUI elements when googling around.
      Can someone tell me how to circumvent that?
      thanks!
      cheers

      Hello
       
      Is there anyway to store word documents in Autoit GUI? For example I have a instruction sheet that I want to bundle up with the exe.

      So a user simply clicks the icon and the stored document will launch  (Something like how you can add objects like excel sheets in word documents )

      (I Know we can launch word files from script directory)

      Not sure if this is possible or if someone has already tackled this. Is it possible to embed PowerShell into a GUI? Autoit is great for quick function but sometime I need to run a command thru PowerShell. It be great to have PowerShell console embedded into the gui.

      Ahoy Autoit Community!
      After many trials and errors I am unable to solve a problem I am facing and would appreciate any kind of input or better yet a solution 
      The Premise: An embeded slideshow viewer that runs after double-clicking an item in a ListView (each item will generate a different slideshow images).
      The Setup: GUI with a ListView Control and a simple exit button.
      The Issue: Once double clicked the slide plays however the GUI "locks"/non responsive until the slide is over. Same thing if I click on the "Test" button.
      The Culprit: I believe since it's in the images loop it can't accept any other commands until that loop is over.
      The Wish: I want to be able to use the GUI functions (selecting other items, clicking on button etc.) while the slideshow plays.
      The Code (stripped and simplified as much as I could):
      #include <GuiListView.au3> #include <File.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) HotKeySet("{Esc}", "_Exit") Global $c=0 Global $ssGDI[3], $ssGraphic[2], $ssImage Global Const $bg_color = "000000" Global Const $ssW = 480, $ssH = 320 Global $aFiles = _FileListToArrayRec("d:\testStage\", "*.jpg;*.png;*.bmp;*.gif;*.JPG;*.PNG;*.BMP;*.GIF", $FLTAR_FILES, $FLTAR_NORECUR ,$FLTAR_SORT ,$FLTAR_FULLPATH ) $guiW = 1200 $guiH = 726 $mainWindow = GUICreate("Slideshow Viewer", $guiW, $guiH, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 0, 0, 50, 50) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button1, "_Exit") $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 60, 0, 50, 50) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button1, "Test") Global $ListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("Entry Name|Category", 5, 75, 195, 280) _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth ($ListView, 0, 100) _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth ($ListView, 1, 100) GUICtrlSendMsg($ListView, $LVM_SETEXTENDEDLISTVIEWSTYLE, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES) GUICtrlSendMsg($ListView, $LVM_SETEXTENDEDLISTVIEWSTYLE, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT) GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Name 1|Category 1", $ListView) GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Name 2|Category 2", $ListView) screenshotWidgetInit($ssW,$ssH, 690, 100) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $mainWindow) GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "WM_Notify_Events") While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE _Exit() EndSwitch WEnd Func Test() For $k = 1 To UBound($aFiles) - 1 screenshotWidgetTransition($aFiles[$k]) Next EndFunc Func ListView_Click() ConsoleWrite("Left Click") EndFunc Func ListView_DoubleClick() ConsoleWrite("Double Left Click") Test() EndFunc Func WM_Notify_Events($hWndGUI, $MsgID, $wParam, $lParam) #forceref $hWndGUI, $MsgID, $wParam Local $tagNMHDR, $event, $hwndFrom, $code $tagNMHDR = DllStructCreate("int;int;int", $lParam) If @error Then Return $event = DllStructGetData($tagNMHDR, 3) Select Case $wParam = $ListView Select Case $event = $NM_CLICK ListView_Click () Case $event = $NM_DBLCLK ListView_DoubleClick () EndSelect EndSelect Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc Func screenshotWidgetTransition($image, $delay = 0, $speed = 1, $sleep = 2000) Local $a, $d = $c, $iX, $iY $ssImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($image) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($ssImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($ssImage) $FDesktop=$ssH/$ssW $Fact =1 If $iX > $ssW And $FDesktop > ($iY/$iX) Then $Fact=$ssW/$iX ElseIf $iY > $ssH Then $Fact=$ssH/$iY EndIf $H1 = Round(($Fact * $iY),0) $W1 = Round(($Fact * $iX),0) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImageRect($ssGraphic[$d], $ssImage,($ssW - $W1)/2, ($ssH - $H1) / 2,$W1,$H1) WinSetTrans($ssGDI[$d], "", 0) WinSetOnTop($ssGDI[$d], "", 1) For $a = 0 To 254 Step $speed WinSetTrans($ssGDI[$d], "", $a) Sleep($delay) Next WinSetTrans($ssGDI[$d], "", 254) WinSetOnTop($ssGDI[Not ($d)], "", 0) WinSetTrans($ssGDI[Not ($d)], "", 0) _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear($ssGraphic[Not ($d)]) $c = 1 - $d _GDIPlus_ImageDispose ($ssImage) ; very important to realease the pics Sleep($sleep) EndFunc ;==>screenshotWidgetTransition Func screenshotWidgetInit($ssW,$ssH,$ssX,$ssY) $ssGDI[2] = GUICreate("", $ssW, $ssH, $ssX, $ssY, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $mainWindow) $ssGDI[0] = GUICreate("", $ssW, $ssH, 3, 3, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $ssGDI[2]) $ssGDI[1] = GUICreate("", $ssW, $ssH, 3, 3, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $ssGDI[2]) ; GUISetBkColor("0x" & $bg_color, $ssGDI[2]) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $ssGDI[2]) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $ssGDI[0]) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $ssGDI[1]) WinSetTrans($ssGDI[0], "", 0) WinSetTrans($ssGDI[1], "", 0) _GDIPlus_Startup() $ssGraphic[0] = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($ssGDI[0]) $ssGraphic[1] = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($ssGDI[1]) _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear($ssGraphic[0], "0xFF" & $bg_color) _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear($ssGraphic[1], "0xFF" & $bg_color) EndFunc ;==>screenshotWidgetInit Func _Exit() _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($ssImage) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($ssGraphic[0]) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($ssGraphic[1]) GUIDelete($ssGDI[0]) GUIDelete($ssGDI[1]) GUIDelete($ssGDI[2]) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() Exit EndFunc ;==>_Exit I hope someone can shed light on this; perhaps a different approach is needed?
