Dynamic Windows Size Creation Using New Feature

Recommended Posts

This uses the, recently added, ability of AutoIt's to read specific elements of an array, directly from the function return...


$StartMenu_Height = WinGetPos("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]")[3]
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>


Func Main()
    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("PANIC", 110, 55,@DesktopWidth-110,@DesktopHeight-WinGetPos("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]")[3]-55,$WS_POPUP)
    $hPANIC_Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("PANIC", 11, -2, 90, 38)
    GUICtrlSetFont($hPANIC_Label, 28, 800, 0, "Roman")
    $hEnabled_Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("enabled", 18, 32, 74, 22)
    GUICtrlSetFont($hEnabled_Label, 12, 400, 0, "Courier New")

    ; Set GUI to AlwaysOnTop
    WinSetOnTop($hGUI, "", 1)

    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


    ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls.
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I'm not sure what that feature is called, exactly, but it very handy. ^.^
