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

Recommended Posts

is there any way to make GetCurrentGUI() not to flick gui ? 

(it's difficult to give you an example code right now) 

when i use the _metro_enablebutton it instantly redraws gui (i tried sw lock with no success) 

the only solution that i found is to give directly the gui parameter to enablebutton func

 

edit -> am not sure (because i must remove the previous "fix", but if i change the (from getcurrentgui func)

Local $idCtrlDummy = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 0, 0, 0, 0)

to 

Local $idCtrlDummy = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 0, 0, 1, 1)

 

it seems ok

Hmm not sure what you mean. I can't see any flickering. Can you post an example?

Try installing the newest version of Autoit and the Scite Editor. The Au3Stripper seems outdated. I have (16.306.1237.0) running and it doesn't return any errors.

Hi everyone,

I have a problem displaying this GUI on different systems. On my laptop (windows 7) it looks like this:

:good.PNG

However, when displayed on my friends laptop (windows 10) the controls are not properly aligned and don't even fit on the screen. Here's a screenshot:

bad.PNG

 

I have no idea how to fix this. Anybody have some advice?

My script:

ExcelTools_V1.au3

Are you sure, you used exactly the same script?

 

When I look at this for example:

$b = 66 + $t        ; Begin pos Toggles
$b1 = 105 + $t      ; Begin pos Inputs

...

Global $Checkbox2 = _Metro_CreateToggle("To UPPERCASE", $l + 40, $b, 180, 30)
    Global $Hotbut2 = _GUICtrlCreateInput("", $l + 320, $b1, 30, 25, $SS_CENTER)

I don't understand why the controls should have the same Top position under Win7..

Yes, it's exactly the same script. That little bit of code is just to make it easier for me to slide all controls down with a certain amount of pixels.

Does it display well at your side?

I use Win 10 and it looked as bad as your Win 10 screenshot. But.. Do I miss something?  In the example that I looked at., the Inputfield next to the toggle UPPERCASE should have the same (or nearly the same) Top position. But $b1 is always 39 bigger then $b, what the variables for your Top position is. So the positions I can see with Win 10 seem for me exactly that, what your code says... I don't understand it.

You are absolutely right and I now this is confusing. I had to enter different heights because they were displayed at different heights if I entered the same height for both (still following me? :p).

@KarlosTHG

Well if that's the problem, then that solution won't work for me as this program will be installed on a lot of different systems. It should just work for everyone without having to change any settings in windows. So I might just add an If statement that will change the GUI when it is displayed on windows 10 versus windows 7.

Thank you both!

Did you tried changing:

;Required if you want High DPI scaling enabled. (Also requries _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling())
;#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=Y

to:

;Required if you want High DPI scaling enabled. (Also requries _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling())
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=Y


maybe that can help

I managed to fix it by adding custom positions when operating system is windows 10.

Btw, when I try to compile the script, I get a message saying "Incorrect Wrapper Directive '#Autoit3Wrapper_REs_HiDpi=Y' "

Am I compiling it wrong or something?

My script:

ExcelTools_V1.au3

 

Hi,

This UDF is already optimized for high resolution screens, meaning all buttons, toggles and even the main GUI will be created with a dynamic size so that everything looks very sharp no matter that DPI size the user is using. Unfortunately many modern programs lack this feature which causes them to look very small, blurred or the controls are completely out of size and position on 4k Displays which mostly require higher DPI sizes. That why I had to add this feature.

If you use _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling() and #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=Y, then this feature will be enabled and you will require to calculate the pos+size of all controls that are created using Autoits GUICtrlCreate... functions. All functions like _Metro_CreateButton already do this by default, so no need to change anything for them.

It is actually pretty easy but might take some time if you have many controls. There is already a global variable declared in the UDF, that can be used to calculate the position/size. You can use ( x * $gDPI) for every position and size parameter.

Global $titlelabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("ExcelTools", 80*$gdpi, 6*$gdpi, 200*$gdpi, 28*$gdpi)

While creating the GUI, you should disable _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling() and #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=Y and create your GUI like you would usually do. After that you can enable them again and add *$gDPI to all the Autoit GUICtrlCreate... functions. This way your program will look the same on all computers when it is compiled.

Check if you have the latest Autoit and Scite Tools version installed. It should work like provided in the example GUI.

@BBs19: I've read up on the DPI issues and tried a few tests ... but uncertainties creep back in.  Since you seem well-versed in DPI, can you clarify you last statement:

Quote

If I apply the multipliers to the X, Y positions of all my GUI elements, which way should the Wrapper setting be? ... Y or N?

And if I decide not to use multipliers (and just let the OS scale everything in the blurry manner), what is the proper Wrapper setting?

I hope you don't mind responding to this.  From the AutoIt standpoint, it appears that your MetroGUI UDF is leading the way in this "frontier" of technology.

If you apply the multipliers, then you have to set #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi to "Y" and add _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling()  to the script so that Windows doesn't try to rescale the program as you would be doing that yourself.

If you want to let Windows scale everything, then you just remove _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling()  and #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=Y (or put it to N) from your code.

Love what you did with this Metro UDF! I'm seeing a lot of ways to improve my code.

Are you able to include GUICtrlSetResizing for labels?

I would be interested too in working some transparency levels into the interface as well on Windows 7 machines and above?

Also, this tvshowcountdown app is amazing!  Would love to learn from the code behind this, if possible? If not, it's okay. Figure I'd ask anyway.

Thank you for all of your work!

Thanks :)

What do you mean with include GUICtrlSetResizing for labels?

TV-Show-Manager is opensource, so you can check out the code any time. But I would suggest you wait, as the code was written very bad back then, I am rewriting the program from scratch to look similar to Netflix. Here is a small demo: Picture It will take some time to finish, as I am not really motivated to work on it at the moment :)

Your Netflix-like program looks great so far! Nicely done!

And badly written or not, TVShowManager is not only good looking, not only have key functions that could easily be implemented in other functions, but it itself is very useful for keeping track of shows! (So many shows barely last one season so I like to keep track of some to see if they survive the cut and if I should binge watch or not). And I huge TV Show list is like having the TV Guide. Beautiful!

I'll look for the source code!

Now, I noticed that with your controls they automatically change to the right positions whether the window is normal size or maximized (like the OK button). Beautiful. So I was putting labels in the gui, but they didn't move where I wanted them. I thought it was because of not having GUICtrlSetResizing (or creating) functions for Metro styled labels. Of course, I could have done something wrong myself.

How far were you planning on taking the Metro Design? Tray Menu's? Calendar gui?  Just was wondering.

 

Thank you for everything you did so far.

If you set GUICtrlSetResizing correctly, then the label should also move in the position you want.

Well there are a lot of requests at the moment like Scrollbars,Sliders etc. and I don't know which will work or not. Everything that goes beyond simple clicking like buttons, checkboxes etc. require a lot of workarounds in the background which in return create problems with big projects.. 

There will be new features, but I don't know when I will have the time to work on it again.

Understood. No worries. Everything seems to be working well.

Just was curious: What would be the best way to get Transparency to work with the Metro GUI?

On Windows 10, this works fine: _WinAPI_DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow10($Form1, True)/#include <_WinAPI_DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow10.au3>

However, this does not work with Windows 7. The old GUI Create does have a flag for transparent layers, but not sure if there is a Metro equivalent?

Thanks again!

      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?

      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?
