Using SmOke_N (Ron Nielsen)'s Custom MsgBox

Recommended Posts

jdicerch

I am using this awesome UDF to change the MsgBox(4) to "CONFIRM" (yes) and "REMIND ME LATER" (no), but the size of the remind me later button is too small.  Is there a way to customize the size of the buttons? Or make it dynamic somehow, using Sm0ke_N's UDF?

Thanks in advance for your help!

#include <msgboxudf.au3>

_MsgBox_SetButtonText(4, "Confirm", "Remind Me Later")

_MsgBox(4, "Title", "test")

Hi,
It's better to post the link to the UDF like this:

#include <MsgBoxUDF.au3> ;http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/117375-msgboxmessagebox-move-and-change-button-text/

So we can directly get it (and not formating the topic's title like you did).

You can try to edit the UDF, with the ControlSetPos function. I imagine the buttons can be edited in the For starting at the line 114; $iid corresponds to their ID.

>Another UDF that may help you.

Br, FireFox.

jdicerch,

My ExtMsgBox UDF usually sets the max width of a button at 80 pixels, but that is easily changed in the code if you want it to be wider. My StringSize UDF could even determine the size dynamically - up to a given maximum. ;)

Let me see what I can produce for you this afternoon. :)

Hmm I was looking at that other UDF, but I wasn't sure if i can specify button size. Also, if I just edit Sm0ke's code, how would ControlSetPos change the size of the button?  Wouldn't I need to modify the GuictrlCreateButton(width)?  Thanks again for your help!

It's ControlMove actually, my bad. It allows to set the size too.

GUICtrlCreateButton is to create a button, I suggest you to take a look at the helpfile and its examples :)

Thanks FireFox, I am seeing some progress, but I think I have the wrong positions?

ControlMove("title","",$iid,$__iMsgBox_XPos,$__iMsgBox_YPos, 15)

This puts the buttons at the top of the msgbox and screws everything up :(

Try the Default keyword instead of $__iMsgBox_XPos and $__iMsgBox_YPos.

Ah got it! Thank you.  That works, just needs a little maneuvering around.

If you are still interested, here is a Beta version of my ExtMsgBox UDF which will expand buttons to fit the required text up to the point where the buttons become too wide for the max width of the GUI: :)

The first EMB shows the normal button width (80 pixels); the second has expanded to fit the longest text (all buttons are the same size); while the final call fails because the longest text required meant that the buttons needed to be over the max width that they could be. You can see the return values int eh console. :)

And before you ask, I am not going to develop a version with individually sized buttons - the button sizing logic is quite complicated enough already.! :P

jdicerch,

If you are still interested, here is a Beta version of my ExtMsgBox UDF which will expand buttons to fit the required text up to the point where the buttons become too wide for the max width of the GUI: :)

 

I am very interested! Thank you very much, I will try to implement this into my code.
