Dynamically resizing a label based on font change

Recommended Posts

SlowCoder74

How do I force a label to dynamically resize when the font parameters (size, face, etc.) have changed?  I'd need it to fit to the text.

My code:

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

$Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 405, 293, 285, 136)
$LabelhWnd=GUICtrlCreateLabel("My Text",10,10,-1,-1) ;create label
GUICtrlSetFont($LabelhWnd,20,800,0,"Times New Roman") ;adjust font

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

SlowCoder74,

My StringSize UDF (look in my sig for the link) will return the new size and so allow you resize the label correctly. :)
