SOLVED----GUI Window Remembers Screen Position

Recommended Posts

I have a script that parses our wiki page at work and generates an email.  The email is generated in its own "GUi-Window".  I have 4 monitors on my machine. My script is opening up the newly generated GUI page on another monitor other than the "primary". This is fine for me, but this is going to be deployed to everyone in my department who don't have multiple monitors setup.  I tested on a co-workers machine who only has his laptop, and the first gui opens just fine, but the second gui "email notification" opens "Off Screen".  I had to move it over to the laptop display to be able to see what was there.

Why is it doing this and how can I make it so that the second window always opens up on the same window where the first gui opens?

Code is below, any and all help is greatly appreciated.

 

FIrst Gui Creation

$C4Automation = GUICreate("C4 Automation", 615, 438, 188, 121)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("C4 Automation", 32, 24, 564, 41)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$ProjectSiteCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 184, 104, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $CBS_SORT))
$ProjectTypeCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 184, 136, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $CBS_SORT))
$ProjectNameInputBox = GUICtrlCreateInput("Project Name", 184, 168, 161, 21, $ES_UPPERCASE)
$NumberofProjects = GUICtrlCreateInput("Number of Projects", 184, 200, 161, 21)
$Submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit", 136, 264, 75, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 256, 264, 75, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Choose Your Project Type:", 24, 140, 156, 17)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Choose Your Project Site:", 24, 108, 150, 17)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$Label4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Input Your Project Name:", 24, 172, 147, 17)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$Label5 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Input Number of Projects", 24, 204, 145, 17)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$Label6 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Choose Your Project Side", 24, 236, 149, 17)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$ProjectSideCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 184, 232, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_SORT))
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Second GUI Creation

$EmailEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 32, 72, 761, 401, BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "")
$CopyButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Copy To Clipboard", 680, 480, 99, 25)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
GUISetState(@SW_HIDE);;;;This hides the first GUI that is created. 
$EmailForm = GUICreate("Maintenance Email Notification", 831, 518, -1435, 222) 
$Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Maintenance Email Notification ", 25, 22, 780, 41) 
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") 
$EmailEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 32, 72, 761, 401, BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL)) 
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE) 
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "") 
$CopyButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Copy To Clipboard", 680, 480, 99, 25) 
Local $test = FileRead("c4.txt") 
ClipPut($test) FileClose($c4file) 
FileDelete("c4.txt")
GUICtrlSetData($EmailEdit, ClipGet()) 
GUICtrlSetState($EmailEdit, $GUI_SHOW) 
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW);;;This shows the email generated form once all the data is populated in the edit box.

$EmailForm = GUICreate("Maintenance Email Notification", 831, 518, -1435, 222)

Obviously it is the -1435 that is putting your GUI off-screen to the left.

If you are just gonna deploy to everyone as stand-alone, and don't need to check for multiple displays, then just change that to the required positive number.

If you only want to have a single program for yourself and them, then do a test based on user name, so as to retain the negative number on your machine, but a positive on everyone else's.

So either use @UserName or @ComputerName

Example

If @UserName = "atnextc" Then
    $left = -1435
Else
    $left = 188
EndIf
$EmailForm = GUICreate("Maintenance Email Notification", 831, 518, $left, 222)

Did you create the program code yourself?

      Hello everybody (and sorry for my bad english)

      I try to get the position of a contextmenu (GUICtrlCreateContextMenu) on a TreeView, with ControlGetPos, but i can't.
      Someone can help me ? Thank you :)

      PS: I need the position to select item wtih rightclick before read the text of the item, because rightclick don't select item (only leftclick).

      Hello eveyone,
      I installed the latest version of Autoit (x86 - for greater compatibility) and SciTE.
      Every time I want to generate the GUI code designed in Koda, the program freezes (only Koda, not SciTE).
      Have you ever had this problem? Do you know how to fix it?
      Thanks!

      Update: Download the latest version here.
      As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
      Here's my code so far:
      ; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.
