GUICtrlSetResizing question

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi

It's the fist time i'll try to make a gui resizable and i have a problem with it.

Check this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.Au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("I'm a test", 521, 372, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX + $WS_MINIMIZEBOX)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("I'm a label", 35, 253, 55, 17)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHCENTER + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 12, 269, 100, 21)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHCENTER + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

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

When is "normal" is the label is centered with the input, when i'm maximize the label is not centered in the input. I know the input become bigger in width and i like it, but there is a way to get the label centered with the input when maximize the window? Thanks

Terenz,

Make the label the same width as the input and centre the text: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.Au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("I'm a test", 521, 372, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX + $WS_MINIMIZEBOX)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("I'm a label", 12, 253, 100, 17, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHCENTER + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 12, 269, 100, 21)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHCENTER + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
Looks pretty good to me. :)

Try this change.

Make the label and the input box the same size and start at the same offset from the side of the GUI, then make sure the text is centered in the label control.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.Au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("I'm a test", 521, 372, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX + $WS_MINIMIZEBOX)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("I'm a label", 12, 253, 100, 20, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHCENTER + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
; Added to emphasize the label and its contents
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 12, 269, 100, 21)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHCENTER + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

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

Only a doubt, i need to use:
 
$ES_CENTER --> Centers text in a multiline edit control
or
$SS_CENTER --> Specifies a simple rectangle and centers the error value text in the rectangle. The control automatically wraps words that extend past the end of a line to the beginning of the next centered line

Seems do both the same thing but i don't know if change

Terenz,

Look at the style prefix: ES = Edit control; SS = Static control. A label is a static control so you in this need the $SS_CENTER style as both BrewManNH and I used in our examples. :)

Here's a simple way to learn how to program. Try it both ways and see what the difference is, if any, and then decide which one you want to use. Don't doubt, test.

      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

      Friends,
      I have written a program that among other things displays data in 3 listboxes. when the window has its original size, it works fine. But if I increase the size the window vertically the listboxes stretch as they should, and I can't select their top entries with the mouse . The last listbox entries are not affected. The more I stretch the window vertically, the more entries become out of reach by the mouse. Also the highest entry that can be selected by the mouse is iffy. It has to be low on the entry.
      But the keyboard arrow keys can select them with no problem.

      The listboxes are resized with the window because of commands like
      GUICtrlSetResizing ( $ControlHandle, $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKSIZE + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT )
      and that's probably where there is a problem with listview selection.
      My OS is windows 2008R1, and I've tried this using both beta 17 and version 3.3.6.1, if that has anything to do with it.
      Ideas anyone?

      Here is the code to build a sample UI to reproduce the problem. It puts a list the folders into a listbox. Run it, try to select the top entries, then stretch the window vertically and try to select the top entries:

      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Dim $Win, $lblFolderList, $lbFolders Main () Func Main () $Win = GUICreate("Test Script", @DesktopWidth / 2 - 255, 188, 192, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 45, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW);$WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_MINIMIZE) $lblFolderList = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Folders List", 4, 8, 37, 17) GUICtrlSetResizing ( $lblFolderList, $GUI_DOCKLEFT + $GUI_DOCKWIDTH + $GUI_DOCKTOP ) $lbFolders = GUICtrlCreateList("", 4, 24, 65, 168) GUICtrlSetResizing ( $lbFolders, $GUI_DOCKLEFT + $GUI_DOCKWIDTH + $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM ) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) PopulateFolders() GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "OnExit") GUISetState() While 1 Sleep ( 1000 ) WEnd EndFunc Func OnExit() Exit EndFunc Func PopulateFolders() Dim $Search, $Found Dim $InitDir = "C:\" GUICtrlSetData ( $lbFolders, "|" ) $Search = FileFindFirstFile ( $InitDir & "\*.*" ) if $Search > -1 Then While 1 $Found = FileFindNextFile ( $Search ) if @error Then ExitLoop If @extended = 1 Then GUICtrlSetData ( $lbFolders, $Found ) EndIf WEnd EndIf EndFunc
