[BUG 3.3.8.1] GUISetState, something doesn't add up

Recommended Posts

johnmcloud

In many years that I use this language i have never create a "resizable" GUI, at least with the Maximize button enabled :D

The first time i'll try i have found something doesn't add up, like title

GUISetState Help:

When windows are created they are initially hidden so you must use this function to display them (@SW_SHOW)

 

 Ok, the GUI is initially hidden so style like:

@SW_MINIMIZE

@SW_MAXIMIZE

Not work because before you need to add @SW_SHOW. Fortunately, we also have:

@SW_SHOWMINIMIZED

@SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED

In my mind @SW_SHOWMINIMIZED = @SW_SHOW + @SW_MINIMIZED

In fact:

$hGUI = GUICreate("", 230, 175, -1, -1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOWMINIMIZED)

Work like expected, the GUI start minimized. But for unknow reason i can't do the same with @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED

I have try:

$hGUI = GUICreate("", 230, 175, -1, -1, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED) 
$hGUI = GUICreate("", 230, 175, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED) 

And not work, but this yes:

$hGUI = GUICreate("", 230, 175, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED) 

I need to @SHOW two times? Why? In this way the GUI start with W.230 H.175 and THEN Maximize instead of start directly maximized.

The WINAPI version work fine:

$hGUI = GUICreate("", 230, 175, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX))
_WinAPI_ShowWindow($hGUI, @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED) 

So i don't want an alternative, i'd like to know why the internal GuiSetState work like expected with @SW_SHOWMINIMIZED but not with @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED, if it is a style problem or things like that

Thanks

This works for me (Win 7, 32 and 64 bit, 3.3.10):

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("", 230, 175, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)

While 1
  Switch GUIGetMsg()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
      ExitLoop
  EndSwitch
WEnd

Just an FYI, most of the styles being set in this line are the defaults, so you can do this a lot easier.

$hGUI = GUICreate("", 230, 175, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX))
; can be done like this
$hGUI = GUICreate("", 230, 175, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX))

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Not, because LarsJ answer doesn't have the information "work with last stable but not with the previus stable" and i have quoted him in my post.

P.S. Is "Mark Solved", not "Best Answer" and i know how to use the forum :D

I don't have idea was a bug, i have think a style problem or similar issue.

The script you can find in LarsJ post or in my first post with the macro @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED don't show nothing with 3.3.8.1 but work fine with 3.3.1.0, whatever style you use.
