MetroGUI UDF v5.1 - Windows 10 style buttons, toggles, radios, menu etc.


Recommended Posts

 

Very cool.

Can you provide example with Edit ?

 

btw.
please post it here:
https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/files/category/11-gui-additions/

What do you mean with edit? Normal GUICtrlCreateEdit?

GUICtrlCreateEdit("",20,200,200,100,-1,0); This makes it look flat as it removes the borders. I am not sure how it looks on Windows 7 though.

Ps.: I will post it there.

 

When running the example, no text shows on the buttons. Changing theme/text color does nothing; neither does running in Beta (although beta-run makes buttons fit into the GUI better)

 

Am I missing something?

Please try chaning the font to Arial or something. Maybe you don't have Callibri Light on your computer, that is the default font. Try: 

$Button1 = _Metro_CreateButton($GUI_HOVER_REG, "Button Style 1", 105, 250, 130, 40, $ButtonBKColor,  $ButtonTextColor, "Arial", 11)

Ps. Can you tell me on which Windows you are?

 

Its good but my only comment would be i cant make the check boxes or radio buttons smaller than 24 the slider and buttons etc are great but the check and radios seem out of proportion with the others

Now that you say it, i see it, too :P You can change it now for the radio:  

$Radio1 = _Metro_CreateRadio($GUI_HOVER_REG, 1, "Radio 1", 180, 70, 100, 26,$GUIThemeColor, $FontThemeColor, "Segoe UI", "11",  0, 22) ;< Last parameter tells the size for the circle.

For checkboxes it is a little harder, i am not sure how to calculate it so that the checkmark of the checkboxe doesn't gets deformated or misplaced using GDIPlus. I just started learning GDIPlus and I was never good at math :P I have just reduced it to 22px. UDF Updated in first post.

Think switch block in main while loop can be easily shortened.

Switch $nMsg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $ExitButton
        _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aExitButton[0])
        _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aExitButton[1])
        _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aMinimizeButton[0])
        _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aMinimizeButton[1])
        _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aButton2[0])
        _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aButton2[1])
        _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aButton1[0])
        _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aButton1[1])
        _GDIPlus_Shutdown()
        Exit
    Case $MinimizeButton
        GUISetState(@SW_MINIMIZE, $Form1)

    Case $Button1
        MsgBox(64, "", "Button 1")
    Case $Button2
        MsgBox(64, "", "Button 2")
EndSwitch

Why not

Switch $nMsg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $ExitButton
        For $l = 0 To 1 Step 1
            _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aExitButton[$l])
            _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aMinimizeButton[$l])
            _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aButton2[$l])
            _WinAPI_DeleteObject($aButton1[$l])
        Next
        _GDIPlus_Shutdown()
        Exit
    Case $MinimizeButton
        GUISetState(@SW_MINIMIZE, $Form1)

    Case $Button1
        MsgBox(64, "", "Button 1")
    Case $Button2
        MsgBox(64, "", "Button 2")
EndSwitch

 

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

That was the very old code, but yes could have been also done that way. :)

It is all in a seperate function now, i tried to make it as efficient as possible now.

Looks good but button text doesn't show.

I'm on Windows 7 Pro x64.

I don't know why there is no Calibri Light font on some Windows 7. Maybe you don't have all updates?

Try using other fonts like Arial or Segoe UI or something like that. I wouldn't use normal Calibri as it somehow doesn't have antialiasing when using GDIPlus.

 

Try:

$Button1 = _Metro_CreateButton($GUI_HOVER_REG, "Button Style 1", 105, 250, 130, 40, $ButtonBKColor,  $ButtonTextColor, "Arial", 11)

Yep looks like this is the case, didn't have the font installed. Problem fixed.

I've found a bug with:

_Metro_MsgBox

 

Try create a variable with this sample: $mc = "C:\Users\steen\Desktop\Custom-Icon-Design-Flatastic-11-At.ico"

and use it with _Metro_MsgBox, like: _Metro_MsgBox("Metro MsgBox Example", "You have selected a new icon:" & @CRLF & @CRLF & $mc, 350, 14, $Form1)

nvm, just delete this post, if i remove 350 and 14, then it works fine

It will crash

Please education for a new GUI from scratch, you can record video when you set an example to us + design also can be done in this gui design Is kodadesing program? Please share the video you ;)

Hmm.. I usually just create the GUI in Koda, then add the few lines required for UDF(you can use the example), replace the GUICreate, Buttons etc. with the with the metro udf functions by just replacing all. That is it :) It is mostly copy, paste and replace.

can you show an example of how to have multiple gui windows, so if you click a button,

it will create a new gui, and when you X it, then it removes the GUI again.

I tried that, but it will make the orginal gui stock, and not able to be moved

      Hello everyone,
      I started this project alone in May 2020 as project in my spare time at work, I'm working for a IT company that started opening their services to residential customers few months ago and now my position in the company kind of drifted in the doom and gloom world of repetitive tasks like: Reinstallation + Configuration of Windows 10.
      The procedure is very repetitive and I started feeling like being a robot which is the main reason I started this project.
       
       
      ==============================FAQ==================================
      1. Q: Do you want this project to be accomplished with the usage of AutoIt ONLY or 3rd party tools / Scripts (BATCH / POWERSHELL / VB) ? A: No, if I cannot find a way using AutoIt to accomplish a task I will move to my Plan B which consist of automating an 3rd party tool to accomplish the affected task until a solution is found. 2. Q: What do I get from helping/collaborating in this project? A: I will personally take the responsibility to mention you in the credits of this project. 3. Q: If I have more questions, can I ask? A: Certainly! feel free to ask any questions related to this project! 4. Q: What is the main goal of this project? A: Automating Windows 10 configuration without user interaction needed (as much as possible) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      Current progression of the project (more will be added in future)
      « Blue = Info || Yellow = Unfinished/Untested || Purple = Could be better || Green = Done ||Red = Not Yet Started »
      ***Very early Stage ***
      Connect Network Attached Storage(NAS) (Work but missing configuration in GUI - AutoIt only)
      Download & Install up to 600+ softwares (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool + 50/50 Powershell/AutoIt)
       Auto prediction of Apps name of text typed inside input (Tested & Working - AutoIt Only)
      Change OEM Informations (Tested & Working -  AutoIt)
      Disable hibernation (Tested & Working - AutoIt only)
      Change Computer Name (Work but require testing - AutoIt only) 
      Show Computer Information and Smart status on GUI (Tested & Working - AutoIt Only)
      Change .pdf / .pdfxml from Edge to Adobe Reader DC (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      Change Edge to Google Chrome as Default Browser (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      Windows Updater (Seems to work but require further testing - AutoIt only)
      Install Office 365 / 2013 + Activation (To Do)
      Add L2TP VPN Configuration for Windows Built-in VPN (To Do)
      Save / Load tasks configuration profile in (.ini file) to avoid repeating same configuration twice (In progress - AutoIt Only)
      (EXPERIMENTAL) Install Apps from Microsoft Store with UIAutomation UDF made by @junkew(Work if you know what your doing)
         P.S: Installing Apps from Microsoft Store will require usage of  UIA spy tool made by @LarsJ which you can download & learn how to use it on UIA Spy Tool thread.

      Hi All,
      I'm not sure if its possible that I'm trying to achieve, I've looked into https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/AutoIt3Wrapper.html and such resources for help, but I cant really find the answer to my question.
      So upon compiling the script in SciTE, the exe file is given a Description under file Properties>Details. I understand, that  one can enter info manually there and it can even implement the version automatically with each compilation.
       
      What I'm trying to achieve is to somehow include the "@ScriptName" in the Details>File Description Field. But as I see no variable can be taken after "#" in this case.
       
      Do You think its achievable? (Win 10)
       
      Much obliged for taking time on reading this.
       
      Kind Regards,
      Brave

      Hi,
      I have a specific situation:
      Is it possible to run autoit script/.exe as a task which in turn is automating a desktop user interactive application on windows 10 where user will not be logged in - at best I can get user locked? 
      If so how will this work or is there any tool available to do this?
      I am trying z-cron task scheduler but it runs only some part also I tried windows 10 task schedule with option to allow task to run which is user interactive type but that too does not work.
      Looking forward to hear from you to help me out of this situation.
      Thanks,

      So I have no example code currently because I'm not sure where to even start.
      We're using the parental controls on the computer and the kids each have their own user profiles with limited time. The problem we're encountering is when their time runs out, or if they just hit Win+L and leave the computer, their games are still running in the background. I was hoping to write up a quick AutoIt script and throw it in a recurring scheduled task to just sign off any of the kid's profiles that's not currently active. I found some suggestions to use "query session" and then "logoff [user]" in the command line (which it seems I could easily automate with AutoIt) but that's only available on Win Pro and this system is running Home (and I even tried copying the query.exe from a Pro system but it errors out). Is there some AutoIt equivalent to the query and logoff functions or am I stuck?
      Edit: I'm adding some clarification to exactly what I'm hoping to get out of this script.
      I'd like to setup a scheduled task that runs outside of the current user (perhaps under the SYSTEM account?) in case NO user is currently active, that will detect which users are currently signed in. If users from a predefined list are not currently active, sign them off entirely.
      So let me give two examples:
      Example #1:
      - I am logged in, but not active (I left my browser open and locked the computer) - Nephew A is logged in, but not active (his time ran out while his game was running and the computer auto-locked) - Nephew B is logged in, and currently playing a game When script runs, ignore my profile (leave it signed in), log out Nephew A (closing his game), and ignore Nephew B because he's actively using the computer. Example #2:
      - I am logged in - Nephew A is logged in - Nephew B is logged in - No users are currently active (Windows is sitting on the choose user / sign in screen) When script runs, ignore my profile, log out Nephew A and Nephew B.  
      I would perceive pseudo code, going as such:
      $aChildUsers = [ 'NephewA', 'NephewB' ] $aUserList = GetSignedInUsers() For $i = 0 to UBound($aUserList)-1 If Not UserIsActive($aUserList[$i]) Then For $j = 0 to UBound($aChildUsers)-1 If $aUserList[$i] = $aChildUsers[$j] Then LogOffUser($aUserList[$i]) Next EndIf Next Obviously, GetSignedInUsers(), UserIsActive(), LogOffUser() are not real functions. What I'm searching for is something of their equivalent.
      Thanks for your time!

      I use SetSoundDevice to control my audio devices but the UI was either
       
      blurry like this:
      or unusable like this:

      so I made this horrible thing to add scaling to the GUI:
      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=y #AutoIt3Wrapper_AU3Check_Parameters=-w 3 -w 4 -w 5 #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y #Au3Stripper_Parameters=/sf /sv /rm #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #include <File.au3> ;~ _convertGUI("") If $CmdLine[0] <> 0 Then _convertGUI($CmdLine[1]) Func _convertGUI($sFilePath) If $sFilePath <> "" Then Local $aArray = FileReadToArray($sFilePath) Else ;TEST DATA Local $aArray[6] = ['$H_Res_Language = GUICtrlCreateProgress(5, 120, 210 + 25, 480, 20, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE)) ; $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)', _ 'Local $h_Ok = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 72, 224, 81, 33, 0)', _ 'GUICreate($Warning_TiTle, 700, 310, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_SYSMENU + $WS_MINIMIZEBOX)', _ 'GUICtrlCreateLabel("Output type: ", 30, 130, 65, 20) ;, $SS_RIGHT)', _ '$H_FieldNameEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($INP_FieldNameEdit, 100,260+25, 500, 150 - 25) ;comment', 'Local $H_CANCEL = GUICtrlCreateGraphic("Cancel", 224, 224, 97, 33, 0)'] EndIf Local $hTimer = TimerInit(), $iGUIElementCount = 0, $sResult = "", $sFileName = "", $sDrive = "", $sDir = "", $sExtension = "" If @Compiled Then _PathSplit($sFilePath, $sDrive, $sDir, $sFileName, $sExtension) $sFileName = StringRegExpReplace($sFilePath, "^.*\\", "") EndIf For $i = 0 To (UBound($aArray) - 1) If StringRegExp($aArray[$i], "GUICtrlCreate|GUICreate") Then $sResult = _splitComma($aArray[$i]) If Not @error Then $aArray[$i] = $sResult $iGUIElementCount += 1 EndIf Next ConsoleWrite("t = " & TimerDiff($hTimer) & " GUI elements = " & $iGUIElementCount & " lines = " & (UBound($aArray) - 1) & @CRLF) If $sFileName <> "" Then Local $hFile = FileOpen("edited." & $sFileName, 2) _FileWriteFromArray("edited." & $sFileName, $aArray) FileClose($hFile) EndIf Exit EndFunc ;==>_convertGUI Func _splitComma($sString) Local $sSplitResult = "", $sTrimmedR = "", $sTrimmedL = "" Local $aSplit = StringSplit($sString, ',') If Not @error Then $sTrimmedR = "" $sTrimmedL = "" For $j = 1 To $aSplit[0] If StringRegExp($aSplit[1], "(?:.GUICtrlCreateGraphic|GUICtrlCreateProgress|GUICtrlCreateSlider|GUICtrlCreateTab|GUICtrlCreateTreeView)") Then If $j = 1 Then While StringLeft($aSplit[$j], 1) <> '(' $sTrimmedL &= StringLeft($aSplit[$j], 1) $aSplit[$j] = StringTrimLeft($aSplit[$j], 1) WEnd $aSplit[$j] = StringTrimLeft($aSplit[$j], 1) EndIf EndIf If $j = $aSplit[0] Then While StringRight($aSplit[$j], 1) <> ')' $sTrimmedR &= StringRight($aSplit[$j], 1) $aSplit[$j] = StringTrimRight($aSplit[$j], 1) WEnd $aSplit[$j] = StringTrimRight($aSplit[$j], 1) EndIf If StringRegExp($aSplit[$j], "[0-9]") And $aSplit[$j] <> -1 And $aSplit[$j] <> 0 And $aSplit[$j] <> 1 And Not StringInStr($aSplit[$j], ')') Then If StringRegExp($aSplit[$j], "\-|\+") Then ;put parenthesis around + or - $aSplit[$j] = '(' & $aSplit[$j] & ")*$g_DPI" Else $aSplit[$j] = $aSplit[$j] & "*$g_DPI" EndIf EndIf If $j < $aSplit[0] Then $sSplitResult &= $aSplit[$j] & ',' ElseIf $j = $aSplit[0] Then $sSplitResult &= $aSplit[$j] & ')' Else $sSplitResult &= $aSplit[$j] EndIf Next If $sTrimmedR <> "" Then $sSplitResult &= StringReverse($sTrimmedR) If $sTrimmedL <> "" Then $sSplitResult = $sTrimmedL & '(' & $sSplitResult Else SetError(1) Return EndIf ConsoleWrite($sSplitResult & @CRLF) Return $sSplitResult EndFunc ;==>_splitComma
      And now it looks good: 
      but it doesn't work on everything, for example the "GUICtrlCreateLabel("Output type: ", 30, 130, 65, 20) ;, $SS_RIGHT)" (from the autoit3wrapper gui)
      because the comment contains a parenthesis and it would break completely if there were variables as parameters..
      Is there some kind of parser around that I could use instead or maybe someone who has already done something like this?
