WinMove minimum size question

3 posts in this topic

I've taken a few steps back in my learning process of Autoit so that I can get better understanding of what it is that I'm doing.

This means lots of time in the help section.

With that said, the section on WinMove tells me that If the width and height are small (or negative), the window will go no smaller than 112 x 27 pixels.

Script below gets down to 1 pixel. Can anyone explain what I am misunderstanding?

#include <GUIConstantSex.au3>

$theGUI = GUICreate("", 113, 113, 192, 124)
$label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("XX", 0, 0, 53, 41)
GUICtrlSetFont($label1, 24, 400, 4)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $theGUI)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $label1
            GetSmall($theGUI)
            GetBigAgain($theGUI)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func GetSmall($hGUI)
    For $i = 113 To 1 Step -0.001
        WinMove($hGUI, "", 192, 124, $i, $i)
    Next
    Sleep(1000)
EndFunc   ;==>GetSmall

Func GetBigAgain($hGUI)
    For $i = 1 To 113 Step 0.001
        WinMove($hGUI, "", 192, 124, $i + 7, $i + 33);needed the +7 & +33 to regain origional size
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>GetBigAgain

lorenkinzel,

AutoIt created GUIs are actually a form of dialog - so you can indeed get them very small. Try reducing the size of a third-party GUI - this script shows the Autoit Help window reducing to the just the icon and the 3 buttons (which is araond about the size quoted in the Help file) when I run it: ;)

#include <GUIConstantSex.au3>

$hHandle = WinGetHandle("AutoIt Help")
$aPos = WinGetPos($hHandle)

$theGUI = GUICreate("", 113, 113, 192, 124)
$label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("XX", 0, 0, 53, 41)
GUICtrlSetFont($label1, 24, 400, 4)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $theGUI)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $label1
            GetSmall($theGUI)
            ConsoleWrite("Smallest size: " & $aSmallPos[2] & " x " & $aSmallPos[3] & @CRLF)
            Sleep(1000)
            GetBigAgain($theGUI)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func GetSmall($hGUI)
    For $i = $aPos[2] To 1 Step -1
        WinMove($hHandle, "", $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $i, $i)
    Next
    Sleep(10)
EndFunc   ;==>GetSmall

Func GetBigAgain($hGUI)
    For $i = 1 To $aPos[2] Step 10
        WinMove($hHandle, "", $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $i, $i)
    Next
    Sleep(10)
EndFunc   ;==>GetBigAgain

Thanks. Got another chunk of that understanding.
