Auto Resizing of ListView in GUI Window

Recommended Posts

MikahS

Hello AutoIt community,

I have a question for you. I have 3 separate ListViews which need to be auto sized to the GUI width / height. I've looked around the forum for a day or two and have tried using the WM_SIZE method, which after playing with it, I've realized that not everyone's screen is the same and hardcoding it could be troublesome.

So, I'm thinking I need to come up with a better way of resizing my ListViews to my GUI. Does anyone have any suggestions on different ways of achieving this goal?

Example script:

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Icon=
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Outfile=
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Comment=
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Description=
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion=
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y
#Au3Stripper_Parameters=/so
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

MikahS,

I would create disabled labels behind the ListViews which resize automatically and then resize the ListViews to fit the labels:

#include <GuiScrollBars.au3>
#include <GUIListViewEx.au3>

Local $List1Ex, $List2Ex, $List3Ex

Global $GUIhandle, $cLabel_1, $cLabel_2, $cLabel_3

GUI()

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, "WM_SIZE")

_GUIScrollBars_EnableScrollBar(ControlGetHandle("", "", $List2), $SB_BOTH, $ESB_DISABLE_BOTH)
_GUIScrollBars_EnableScrollBar(ControlGetHandle("", "", $List3), $SB_BOTH, $ESB_DISABLE_BOTH)

You are one smart cookie Melba ;)

It works perfectly as expected. Only, one minor detail.

If the window is maximized it will stay the same, and will only change sizes when you are manually resizing the window. Any thoughts?

MikahS,

Thanks. :blush:

As to the "minor detail" - I suggest looking for the maximize and restore messages and running the same function when they occur. ;)

I tried using GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SYSCOMMAND, 'WM_SIZE'). It does the same behavior for maximizing, but tries to expand everything when it is then restored.

I must be missing something.. :geek:

EDIT: Also tried

GUIRegisterMsg(0xF030, "WM_SIZE")
GUIRegisterMsg(0xF020, "WM_SIZE")
GUIRegisterMsg(0xF120, "WM_SIZE")

Very good, but there is no check for double-click on window title events. Here is the fix:

Func _WM_SYSCOMMAND($hWnd, $msg, $wParam, $lParam)

    Const $SC_MAXIMIZE = 0xF030
    Const $SC_RESTORE = 0xF120
    ;Restore via double-click on title window
    Const $SC_RESTORE2 = 0xF122
    ;Maximize via double-click on title window
    Const $SC_MAXIMIZE2 = 0xF032

    Switch $wParam
        Case $SC_MAXIMIZE, $SC_RESTORE, $SC_RESTORE2, $SC_MAXIMIZE2
            $bSysMsg = True
    EndSwitch
    
EndFunc

      Hi All,

      MAIN QUESTION:
      Is it possible to Call specific function within a GUI

      So I have a script with multiple functions although I don't want to use every function every time.
      My Idea is to create a simple GUI which allows me to select what functions I want to use then run the funtions by clicking a button.
      I have already made a GUI which allows me to select specific .exe's I would like to run after selection it runs the .exe one by one.
      This script is on my work laptops and cannot access it right now.
       
      Who can help me with this?
      GUIcreate
      Func1 
      Func2
      Func3
      Then have a boxes which allows me to select the specif Func.(I used GUIChecked and Unchecked in my other script)
      Then a button which executes/calls the selected functions

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

      Hello, 
      i have a Problem with  _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes, everything is working as excepted if u are on Windows 7.

      But if u are on Windows 10 the transparent background of a control is not clickable anymore. 

      Could someone help?

      Please see example below, put cmd.jpg into the same folder as Example.au3

      Please see trigger.jpg to see which sections are not clickable in Windows 10 (the red dots, the green dots are clickable) on Windows 7 the red ones and green ones are clickable.
       
      The same problem occurs if i use

      Hello everyones reading this post,
      I'm struggling at resizing properly my radio buttons to fit long text inside without affecting others radio buttons and also adjust position of them relative to the string.
      I tried with _StringSize UDF but I guess im too tired to figure out how to use it correctly..
      I also tried: _Control_SetWidth2Text I found on this forum, it work aslong im not maximizing GUI (radio text is gone when I maximize and maximize is a must)
       
      here is the code example, I hope someone can figure out (sorry if guictrlsetpos is not included in the example, I know thats probably the way to go but I wanted to make sure there is nothing better before use it)
      Thank you
