Opt("GUIResizeMode",$GUI_DOCKALL) Doesn't Seem To Work?

7 posts in this topic

I seem to be finding that Opt("GUIResizeMode",$GUI_DOCKALL) doesn't work as I'd expect it.  I would have assumed that this option would cause the default of all created window controls to be $GUI_DOCKALL (no moving).

What I've found is that I still have to use GUICtrlSetResizing($hwnd, $GUI_DOCKALL) to all of the controls on my windows, individually.  Otherwise they move when the window size is changed.

Am I using it incorrectly?

SlowCoder74,

 

Am I using it incorrectly?

It sounds as if you are. Please post a reproducer script - perhaps just the GUI creation code from the script you are using - so we can take a look. :)

Yeah ... While for some reason it's not working in my code, the reproduced code appears to work ok.  Therefore I'm gonna assume something else is broken.  Will keep tinkering.  Thanks, Melba.

SlowCoder74,

If you cannot see the problem, post the whole thing and we can take a look too. :)

Returning to this after a while ...

I was able to reproduce the problem.  It appears to be related to moving/resizing using ControlMove.

The code below creates an input control of a certain size/location.

ControlMove moves and resizes the control.

If you minimize and restore the window, you'll see that the control has reverted to it's original size/location.

I'm using AutoIt 3.3.10.2

Update: More testing shows that if I add GUICtrlSetResizing($Input1, $GUI_DOCKALL) AFTER the ControlMove it will retain the new size/location.

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

Opt("GUIResizeMode",$GUI_DOCKALL) ;prevent moving of controls when resizing window

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 231, 182, 309, 270)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 8, 8, 145, 21)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

ControlMove($Form1,"",$Input1,16,16,150,30)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

The thing with custom GUI toolkits or whatever you wanna call what GUICtrl* is, is that there are a lot of things going on in the background to support making your life easier. And that background stuff may not work correctly when you skip the purpose-built functions (GUICtrlSet*) and go straight for the generic (Control*) ones.

Case in point, when you use GUICtrlSetPos() it doesn't revert to the original position.

I was thinking it is a problem in the ControlMove function, as you said.  I'm not sure why I used ControlMove instead of GUICtrlSetPos.  Probably looked up how to move/resize, and that's what came up first.
