Slider jumps

Recommended Posts

careca

Hi, found a post about something like this, but didn't quite get it.

The problem here is that i have a slider, and when i click somewhere in the slider,

the thingy starts jumping in the direction of the mouse press, but doesn't quite stay where im clicking.

Then it seemed like using "_GUICtrlSlider_Create" instead of "GUICtrlCreateSlider" would be a good option,

but it messed up everything, as the "GUICtrlSetData" doesn't work with it.

What are my options?

careca,

Clicking on the slider away from the thumb (the correct name for the "thingy" ;)) moves the slider by one "page" in that direction. If you do not have the mouse cursor directly over a "page" boundary then you will not see the thumb move to the cursor and it may well over/undershoot. This is the standard behaviour of slider controls and nothing to do with whether they were created by the native or UDF functions. :)

Why do you need the thumb to move to precisely where you click the cursor? :huh:

Hi, thanks for the clarification, i need to move the thumb precisely because of the seek function of the music player.

It does work if i drag it, but most players allow you to just click the seek bar and the thumb will move there.

This is nothing to be seriously worried about, but would be nice if it worked.

careca,

I think you might have to look at the mouse position when you click and then set the thumb to that position. I will have a play this afternoon and see what I can come up with. :)

I wouldn't use a slider for this, it may be easier to code it with one, but sliders have that annoying tendency to not move to where you click it.

I have done something similar with a progress bar to indicate where in the song it is, but overlayed that with a blank label. The label is used for getting the mouse click and you have to do a little math as to where on the GUI you clicked and then advance the song or rewind it to that part of the song you want to get to. It's not as easy to do it this way, because there's a lot of parts you need to know before-hand, such as the location of the progress bar in relation to the GUI, how long the song is, how to get the player to jump to the position of the mouse click, etc.

careca,

Here is a rough idea of what I mean - it does essentially what BrewManNH has just described:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cSlider = GUICtrlCreateSlider(10, 10, 480, 20)

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 50, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
            $aCinfo = GUIGetCursorInfo()
            If $aCInfo[4] = $cSlider Then
                $iOldOpt = Opt("MouseCoordMode", 2)
                $aMpos = MouseGetPos()
                Opt("MouseCoordMode", $iOldOpt)
                ConsoleWrite($aMpos[0]                & @CRLF)
                $iSliderPos = Int(100 * ($aMPos[0] - 12) / 470)
                GUICtrlSetData($cSlider, $iSliderPos)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch

WEnd

I hope it is useful. :)

A _IsPressed check would make it smooth.

M23's code..

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>

Opt("MouseCoordMode", 2)

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 200)

$cSlider = GUICtrlCreateSlider(10, 10, 480, 20)

GUISetState()

While 1

Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
$aCinfo = GUIGetCursorInfo()
If $aCinfo[4] = $cSlider Then
While _IsPressed("01")
$aMpos = MouseGetPos()
$iSliderPos = Int(100 * ($aMpos[0] - 12) / 470)
GUICtrlSetData($cSlider, $iSliderPos)
WEnd
ConsoleWrite($aMpos[0] & @CRLF) ;show at release otherwise it becomes a mess
EndIf
EndSwitch

WEnd

Here's how I'd do it using a ProgressBar, no UDFs needed.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 200)
$cLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 480, 20)
$cProgress = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 10, 480, 20)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cLabel
            $aMpos = GUIGetCursorInfo($hGUI)
            $iPercent = Int(100 * ($aMpos[0] - 12) / 470)
            GUICtrlSetData($cProgress, $iPercent)
            ConsoleWrite($aMpos[0] & @CRLF)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Hey guys, thank you for your help, this is what i ended up doing:

If $CursorInfo[2] = 1 And $CursorInfo[4] = $Slider1 Then
While _IsPressed("01", $hDLL)
$aMpos = MouseGetPos()
$SeekB2Secs = Int(100 * ($aMpos[0] - 12) / 352)
GUICtrlSetData($Slider1, $SeekB2Secs)
$Seek = GUICtrlRead($Slider1)
$SeekB2Secs = $Seek * $Lenght / 100
WEnd
_BASS_ChannelSetPosition($MusicHandle, $SeekB2Secs, $BASS_POS_BYTE)
EndIf

Greetings.

      Hi guys
      I have a question about the slider  controle
      There is a problem with screen readers, wen we Using a screen reader We usually move between GUI controls using the tab key.
      But when you create a slider , beside to it there are  buttons and check boxes or any other controls, When I move between the GUI controls using the tab key I can not find the slider.
      But if it were alone in the window, I would find it normally.
      Is there a solution to Solve this problem please?
      This is the code i tried
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
      #include <WindowsConstants.au3>
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
      #include <SliderConstants.au3>
      main()
      Func main()
          GUICreate("slider", 200, 200, -1, -1)
      GUICtrlCreateGroup("slider", 10, 10, 240, 50)
          Local $idSlider1 = GUICtrlCreateSlider(50, 30, 200, 20, BitOr($TBS_DOWNISLEFT, $TBS_BOTH))
          GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 100, 0)
      ;GUIStartGroup("")
          Local $idButton = GUICtrlCreatebutton("Value?", 75, 70, 70, 20)
          GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
          GUICtrlSetData($idSlider1, 10)
      while 1
      switch GUIGetMsg()
      case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
      exit
      case $idButton
                  MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "slider1", GUICtrlRead($idSlider1))
      endSwitch

      Hi, I am stuck on a GUI problem and would like your help to solve it.
      I am trying to automate the SoundWire Server app to match my current system volume level while it is minimized to the notification area (so no clicking or stealing focus),
      I can already get the handle and alter the tracker position by sending a WM_SETPOS message, but somehow the actual volume is not changed: I think I need to do something else to trigger the event handler for the value change and propagate it correctly.
      This is the control summary from Au3 info:
      >>>> Window <<<< Title: SoundWire Server Class: #32770 Position: 441, 218 Size: 566, 429 Style: 0x94CA00C4 ExStyle: 0x00050101 Handle: 0x0000000000510E12 >>>> Control <<<< Class: msctls_trackbar32 Instance: 4 ClassnameNN: msctls_trackbar324 Name: Advanced (Class): [CLASS:msctls_trackbar32; INSTANCE:4] ID: 6002 Text: Position: 51, 222 Size: 47, 126 ControlClick Coords: 1, 101 Style: 0x5001000A ExStyle: 0x00000000 Handle: 0x00000000001234C8 >>>> Mouse <<<< Position: 496, 567 Cursor ID: 2 Color: 0xF0F0F0 >>>> StatusBar <<<< >>>> ToolsBar <<<< >>>> Visible Text <<<< Default multimedia device Tray on Start Static Server Address: 192.168.1.8 Status: Connected to B9K~OP3 Audio Output Audio Input Level Record to File Input Select: 44.1 kHz Minimize to Master Volume Mute >>>> Hidden Text <<<< Slider2 Mute OK Cancel Label Balance Slider1 Volume Front L/R Fr C/LFE Side L/R Back L/R
      I am attaching the program in question so you don't have to install it (i don't know if it is portable enough, tough):

      I would like to use a WM_NOTIFY function to manage a slider thumb position change, according this MSN trackbar link TRBN_THUMBPOSCHANGING .
      Does somebody know why the notification code "TRBN_THUMBPOSCHANGING" for the slider control seems ignored in "WindowsConstants.au3" include file ?
      Searching in AutoIt or MSN forum , or googling this code, I don't succeed to catch any code info !!! Is it obsolete ?
      Thanks

      I am attempting to use sliders to create a Q&A report that outputs a log/txt  file on a PC/Server...at least I got that to work.
      I have the sliders set, however I cannot get the number range to show on the GUI correctly. Could use some guidance here.
      When I output the value of each slider into a log file, the values are really goofed. Could use some more guidance here too.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am a noob, take pity. I have self abused already!
