Gui to preview a Gdi+ image (with scrollbars, gdi+, resizable gui etc...)

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,
This question is to help me find out what I have to do, how some things are managed and point me in the right direction hopefully by not reinventing the wheel.

What I want to achieve is to be able to preview an image like in any image software viewer/editor.
I have a Gdi+ bitmap with size 1024x1024
I want to show it fullsize on a resizable window (let's say initial size is 256x256) with scrollbars

I want the user to be able to resize and/or use scrollbars to "navigate"/"move" in the image

The question is: how do I do It ?

here is a screen from irfan view with only what I need:
RRdbuOH.png

I don't know what I have to do in autoit to achieve this. In c# I would create some image displayer in a panel with scrollbars in a form and voila.
In autoit do I have to manage all the repainting, scrollbar, resizing ?
I mean, do I have to calculate the scrollbars position to know what part of the image I'm in an then redraw that part ?
What about resizing?
What if only a part of the image is masked by another window, do I have to redraw the whole thing or is there a way to just redraw the invalid part ?
How and where do I redraw the image/part of the image ? in the onPaint event ? (and what would that be in autoit).

etc...

I've never done anything like that before, some hints or a complete methodology would be really helpfull.
For now I can draw the GdiPlus bitmap in a gui with the same size as the image. (and from some udf I've see that the guy repainted the whole image in the following event GUIRegisterMsg(0xF, "") )

thx

GUI resize is not included -> homework for you. ;)

Hello again,

I've messed around with UEZ code after almost understanding all of it ;).

It's clever to use the GUICtrlCreatePic and set the picture ourselves.

But there is a strange behaviour with GUICtrlCreatePic and GUIScrollBars.

If we draw the scrollbars after the control, then the position of the control is moved. The left and top position from

GUICtrlCreatePic ( filename, left, top [, width [, height [, style = -1 [, exStyle = -1]]]] ) are not valid anymore. Setting the position with GUICtrlSetPos with the same values does not change anything.

Also the bigger the top value, the bigger the ctrl moves up... If anyone has an explanation for this.

I've only experimented with the top position, obviously adding the bottom scrollbar changes some things but why the bigger the value the bigger the change ?

here are some changes with top values and the upward move in pixels:

top  move

0  0

1 1

6 1

25 1

30 1

35 1

36 2

50 2

129 4

here is a simple code to show the problem. Press the "h" hotkey to toggle the scrollbars hiding.
