Auto Resizing of ListView in GUI Window

Recommended Posts

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")

Try this - you need to wait until the window has been maximized/restored before you resize which is why I use a flag in the idle loop: ;)

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

      hello sirs, i've created a tool to the blind users, this tool helps the blind to listen to a audio effect when moving between the GUIs controls on they computers
      where this tool can get the class for the current focus control and play a sound from a folder
      i've added all the knowne classes, but i found some problems i hope any one can help me.
      this is the code that i created

      Update: Download the latest version here.
      As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
      Here's my code so far:
      ; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.

      I have the following code. You can see there are $color_normal and $color_trans
      In my case normal is too dark . And color trans is to much violet.
      If you run it you will see how its looks. I want gui with listView have the same color like taskbar in windows 10.
      How to achieve that?

      Buttons on GUI to perform different tasks. SETUP is a task that involves displaying another GUI, doing calculations, writing lines to 2 external files, displaying information on GUI labels.  The info from the displayed GUI (quantity made and job completed YES or NO) must be included on the written lines. I cannot get the script to run synchronously (waterfall execution 1st one ends before 2nd one starts.) That means lines written to the files do not contain the required data.  I have read through FORUM and thought by inserting a boolean value and changing TRUE FALSE that I could solve this issue. I would have to set/reset the boolean before every function call to make it work. I've tried using Sleep but that just slows everything down and makes main GUI look unresponsive
      Is there a trick or tip someone can provide that forces synchronous execution?
      I am using OPT GUIOnEventMode
      Thank you for any insight into this issue.
