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.

I'm using Win7 Pro x64

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.

EndSwitch

 

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

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

Is it really not possible to change the state of a radiobox, but only a toggle and a checkbox,

why would there even be a radiobox in the udf, if you can't check if it's selected or not 0_o

      I have a application that have a function is to create a shortcut to desktop, lets say is ChromePortable.lnk.
      $iCreate = FileCreateShortcut($DIR_WA_FOLDER & '\GoogleChromePortable.exe', $DIR_SHORTCUT, $DIR_WA_FOLDER, '--kiosk "https://example.com/"') So the shortcut will be launch as kiosk mode and force to enter the specific website. However, the user is still able to right-click on the shortcut and modify the target value to remove the kiosk mode. What can I do to disable the user to editing the target value?
      So far, I had asked and tried from SuperUser for advises Disable Shortcut Target Field
      icacls "ChromePortable.lnk" /GRANT EVERYONE:RX So this will set the permission of this shortcut file to only Read & Execute only! But after I set it, the user is still can modify.
      Please kindly advise.
      Please note and assume that user don't have Administration account or etc, that should be only have 1 account to logon to the computer.
       
      EDIT:
      I must disable inheritance to remove all others permissions like SYSTEM, ADMINISTRATORS, etc. Then only GRANT everyone for READ & EXECUTE only.
      But still the user can go to edit the permissions tho. Any advise?

      Hello all. I created a script to uninstall Symantec from our environment and I placed the "BlockInput(1)" command in the beginning of the script so that end users would not be able to move the mouse or keyboard to disrupt the mouse clicks.
      During testing we found that this worked for our Windows 7 machines, but for our windows 10 machines the mouse disable did not work can anyone shed some light on why this is? 
      Here is my code:
