Moving Controls around in an already created GUI

17 posts in this topic

NO code, but a question...what is your method for adding a control in an already created GUI.

Say you created your GUI, and then decided that there was something missing, and you wanted to put it in the middle or where ever...you have to move all the controls after it and it is a pain.

Does anyone have an easy method, or the method you choose to begin with so you do not have to worry about this coming up in the future?


All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

I like to dock all my controls...and as more functionality is needed, i expand the gui to make room for a new section, or the like...or tabs are helpful...you can then add more tabs and have full free space of that new tab

nitekram,

If I have banks of controls, I sometimes use Opt("GUICoordMode") to link them - that way moving them is easy. :)

Here is an example - just change the values of the initial constants and see how the groups are moved as one:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

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

$iButton_X = 10
$iRadio_Y = 10

GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio 1", 10, $iRadio_Y, 100, 20)
Opt("GUICoordMode", 0)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio 2", 0, 20, 100, 20)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio 3", 0, 20, 100, 20)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio 4", 0, 20, 100, 20)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("Radio 5", 0, 20, 100, 20)
Opt("GUICoordMode", 1)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Button 1", $iButton_X, 450, 50, 20)
Opt("GUICoordMode", 0)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Button 2", 60, 0, 50, 20)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Button 3", 60, 0, 50, 20)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Button 4", 60, 0, 50, 20)
Opt("GUICoordMode", 1)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I find that quite a help - although obviously not all GUIs have this sort of control grouping.  And it seems I often want to rearrange the groups internally - which means it is as difficult as it always was! :D

Thanks, I never knew about that option (Opt("GUICoordMode", 0))...by the way the link to the helpfile online does not have a page for OPT.HTM?

http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/Opt.htm

edit - adding this: I read it a couple of times, and still lost. But you do not use the GUICtrlSetPos, in your code? But either way, I like the way it works.

Alters the position of a control defined by GUICtrlSetPos.

1 = absolute coordinates (default) still relative to the dialog box.

0 = relative position to the start of the last control (upper left corner).

2 = cell positioning relative to current cell. A -1 for left or top parameter don't increment the start.

So next line is -1,offset; next cell is offset,-1; current cell is -1,-1.

Obviously "offset" cannot be -1 which reserved to indicate the no increment. But if you can use a multiple of the width you choose to skip or go back.

I think he means using GUICtrlSetResizing.

Melba23,

I have never used that option as I'm a little apprehensive of whether it works correctly. Will have to give it a try sometime.

Funny, never looked at this either, heads up on this, it does not load into SciTE, it opens a blank page with the name of the file, but the page is blank...reporting to thread

Be more specific in your question, what's going on that's not supposed to be going on?

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Be more specific in your question, what's going on that's not supposed to be going on?

I guess this example from the heldfile is supposed to show you how expanding your window automatically moves the controls. The buttons do nothing, so it confused me.

But my OP was adding things inside of already created code. Oh $hit, I forgot to add that button, and now I have to adjust all my controls to move down 30 pixels. A pain in the a$$ to change all the controls to make the new one where you want it.

Sounds like the start of a very useful scite4autoit tool that would allow you to select multiple controls and add/subtract a specific value to a specific parameter.  Shouldn't be too hard to build with a fairly simple regex.

nitekram,

Opt is short for AutoItSetOption so you meed to look online here: ;)

Sounds like the start of a very useful scite4autoit tool that would allow you to select multiple controls and add/subtract a specific value to a specific parameter.  Shouldn't be too hard to build with a fairly simple regex.

Are you volunteering?

I don't recall volunteering :P

As of late most of my time has been spent on html, css, and javascript.  That being said, if work calms down a bit, I may give it a shot.  No promises though.

I do not know why it did not work, I was in the help file and clicked the button to load the text, tried it, then went to another subject and it worked, went back to this one and same issue...but after everyone said it worked - it worked for me...go figure

As for the opt.htm - if it is supposed to be going to another page, then put a redirector in the opt.htm, that way when people click on it - it loads the right page rather then going to a page that does not exist.

so create a file on the server called opt.htm

then add this one line of code to the file and save - fixed for all concerned

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/AutoItSetOption.htm">


All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."

      Hi
      Maybe I am just being silly, but I don't understand what is supposed to happen here.
      ::/html/functions/GUICreate.htm
      GuiCreate from the Help file has 2 examples.  Specifically, the 2nd example creates a ChildGui.  Or so it says.  I do not see this on screen.
      $hGUI gets created, no problem.
      Local $hChild = GUICreate("ChildGui", 10, 10, 20, 20, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_MDICHILD), $hGUI) What exactly does this line do? Should I see it on screen?

      I think I am missing something obvious
      I want the "color bar" to stretch from side to side (entire width) of the GUI.  On resize it must expand / contract as necessary.  I guess the answer is easy, but I need a bit of help please?
      $hForm = GUICreate('myColor Picker', 300, 200,-1, -1, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX + $WS_SYSMENU + $WS_CAPTION) ;color the GUI background ;GUISetBkColor($sColorformFile, $hForm) ; set the gui background color ;Local $mycolorLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",10,10,300,10) ; a blank LABEL color bar Local $mycolorLabel = GUICtrlCreateGraphic( -1,-1,300,10) ; a blank GRAPHIC color bar GUICtrlSetResizing($mycolorLabel, $ws_sizebox);$GUI_DOCKMENUBAR);$GUI_DOCKAUTO) ;$GUI_DOCKBORDERS) GUICtrlSetBkColor($mycolorLabel,$sColorformFile) ; set the color for the label  
      This is an extract from here, by @Yashied
