Who wants to help me learn enhanced gui building?

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Alright, here's what I'm working on:

I am going to attempt to make an "add-on" to another piece of software. I plan to do this by simply making a tool that will (1) Keep the software up-to-date, (2) be able to edit the software's options/ini/properties files, and (3) will have an enhanced GUI (meaning using .png's that contain transparent color-space).

I will break it down into sections so it will be more manageable:

Section-1:
learning to check a files version;
learning to "update" the file via downloading the new version from a website;

Section-2:
I already know this one but will be posting my code for reference and improvement;

Section-3:
learning to use GDI or regular GUI to create a GUI that has transparent parts;
learning to position my GUI according to the position of the software's window;
learning to create and use progress bars;
learning other implementations the community may advise;

The 3rd section will be the hardest, mostly because I've been using KODA to make a skeleton GUI then editing it, I'm hoping to learning to make them from scratch so that I'm not reliant on KODA (no offense its a great piece of software but i'm seeking improvement and it could be considered a crutch)

Here's what I'm visualizing per the GUI (example):

I've added a spoiler tag to help others avoid unwanted padding in the thread, the images are contained within the spoiler

This would be the main body of the GUI:

ciik.png

This shows the positioning relative to my test window:

o7w7.png

and these are the number functions I would like to add:

miy6.png

[1]: A close button

[2]: Where information is shown (text, data, etc.)

[3]: Where the progress bar would appear when working (e.g. downloading, checking for updates, changing settings)

[4]: "Help" window button

[5]: "About" window button

[6]: Dynamic buttons

Btw, all that skyrim stuff is my desktop and not the game...

Thank you, I most certainly can tear through this with the help file and build from it!

 

I'll post my edited version later today

makes me smile. it was me who initiated GUISetStyle() to be added to autoit functions many many years ago. the mods told me they doubt that anyone will ever need it. :)

When I run this, it display nothing. Just a task bar said "LayeredWin | Phoenix XL".

Do I miss something here?

How's that possible when you only joined in April 2013?

forgot to mention.

I have tested the script in Win7 32-Bit Ultimate only.

Thereafter,

on winclicktru nothing happens for me. winxppro sp3.

Have you tried it with a normal GUI (single-layered). WS_EX_TRANSPARENT style is enabled from WinXP I guess !!

My code:

PredictText: Predict Text of an Edit Control Like Scite. Remote Gmail: Execute your Scripts through Gmail. StringRegExp:Share and learn RegExp.

Run As System: A command line wrapper around PSEXEC.exe to execute your apps scripts as System (LSA). Database: An easier approach for _SQ_LITE beginners.

MathsEx: A UDF for Fractions and LCM, GCF/HCF. FloatingText: An UDF for make your text floating. Clipboard Extendor: A clipboard monitoring tool. 

Custom ScrollBar: Scroll Bar made with GDI+, user can use bitmaps instead. RestrictEdit_SRE: Restrict text in an Edit Control through a Regular Expression.

i am not sure what is supposed to happen. the rectangular window is blueish transparent, but nothing on clicking.

 

if im not mistaken, the click through function is for all the transparency around the image. The blue-ish window is for description data, text, etc. not to be clicked through so it is working just I needed it to. I'm running Win 7 x64 Ultimate and it works perfect. Only thing I'm having trouble with is locating where to place ws ex styles at to effect it, though that is something i will find along the process of reverse engineering the code.

I am currently trying to figure out how to have one script call up and use another script, sort of like _RecFileListToArray so that I can compile this to use other scripts in its install directory for other jobs such as the file version check and update, or the options/ini configurator, etc. so that I dont have to code it all into one script.

Really I'm just looking for the best coding practices. Any tips or pointers?

 

Edit:  also if you were meaning that when you click inside the blue window nothing happens that's because nothing is supposed to happen, the text there doesn not have an GUISetOnEvent listed as I didn't want the text being anything other than just information regarding the add-on/software/user interactions.

normally i would recommend to put all in one script. you can call the same script from the script with command line parameters so that a second instance runs.

if you have several scripts than you can fileinstall them, but that makes more stress than everything in one.

.

$PID=Run(@ScriptFullPath&" "&$param); you can pass values to the new instance

I just didnt know how many lines are too many, I didnt want my add-on to take forever to load, Secondly, those [+]/[-] used to collapse and expand parts of code, are those something that scite does automatically or are they something i can add?

well i have 10,000 line script in work and it starts immediately. it depends where you put the configuration stuff and how complex the gui is. but if you do it in a smart way, it starts immediately.

 

and you can add #region as often as you like that will structure your script and is collapsible

 

and take a look at UEZ' >loading animations. they are fantastic.
