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

      For fun, I'm building an app that opens a webpage and refreshes it every 30 seconds.
      But once the script performs _IEAction($oIE, "refresh"), the GUI closes.
      Any help is appreciated.

      I am tracking this topic by @LarsJ.  It is very advanced and overkill for what I am currently trying to do.
       
      Problem is this.
      Listview contains columns, one of which is right aligned and gets populated by float values, such as 123.99.  Some do not have decimals ie 124.00 and on sort gets truncated to 124.  Its obviously still the same value, but the display has reset.
      ; line below is for list VIEW ;..................................0.........1......2............ $cListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("CUSTOMER|AMOUNT|DESCRIPTION", 8, 152, 764, 279) GUICtrlSetBkColor($cListView, $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE) ; alternate between the listview background color and the listview item background color GUICtrlSetBkColor($cListView, $LVStdClr) ; Set the background color for the listview _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 0, 120) ; -- the client name _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 1, 90) ;-- the amount _GUICtrlListView_JustifyColumn($cListView, 1, 1) ; 1 - Text is right aligned _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 2, 200) ; the description What I am looking for is something native and simple like a 
          _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnFormat($cListView, 1, "%.2f") ;  1 - column is stringformatted to "%.2f"
      So that after each sort it will appear as it was in the original rendering.
      Is there something like this? I have not been able to find a simple solution.

      Thanks.

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.
