GUI Position minus taskbar height

Recommended Posts

Skorm92

Hi there!

I'm looking for a way to position my gui above the taskbar,

I already have it located in the lower right corner using @DesktopHeight & @DesktopHeight.

But my client is exactly above the taskbar while at a friends computer it positions itself a bit underneath the taskbar which makes some buttons unfunctional.

 

How can I retreive the taskbar size?

 

Thank you in advance!

Try:

Global $aTaskbar = WinGetPos("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd;INSTANCE:1]", "")

Skorm92,

Look in my Toast UDF - the _Toast_Locate function shows how I determine the taskbar position and location by getting the available workarea size via a SystemParametersInfoW call. :)

Post your code...

Why do you need my code, Within my question there is nothing that requires you to review my code.

I used a blank file to test the above posted codes..

Melba23,

I will look into it! Thank you.

I've been looking into your UDF, Although I can see toast_locate I can't really seem to find the exact command that reads the taskbar size/position

From Melba's Toast UDF :

#Include <Array.au3> ; just for _ArrayDiplay

If @AutoItVersion < "3.3.8.0" Then
    $tWorkArea = DllStructCreate("long Left;long Top;long Right;long Bottom")
Else
    $tWorkArea = DllStructCreate("struct;long Left;long Top;long Right;long Bottom;endstruct")
EndIf

DllCall("user32.dll", "bool", "SystemParametersInfoW", "uint", 48, "uint", 0, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tWorkArea), "uint", 0)
If @error Then Return SetError(2, 0, -1)
Local $aWorkArea[4] = [DllStructGetData($tWorkArea, "Left"), DllStructGetData($tWorkArea, "Top"), _
        DllStructGetData($tWorkArea, "Right"), DllStructGetData($tWorkArea, "Bottom")]

_ArrayDisplay($aWorkArea)

Same idea...

$hGui = GuiCreate("test")
GuiSetState()

$WorkAera = _GetWorkArea()
WinMove($hGui, "", $WorkAera[0], $WorkAera[1], $WorkAera[4], $WorkAera[5])

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
WEnd

Func _GetWorkArea()
    Local $Area[6]
    Local $StartRect = DllStructCreate("int[4]")
    Local $PStartRect = DllStructGetPtr($StartRect)
    DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SystemParametersInfo", "int", 48, "int", 0, "ptr", $PStartRect, "int", 0)
    $Area[0] = DllStructGetData($StartRect,1,1)
    $Area[1] = DllStructGetData($StartRect,1,2)
    $Area[2] = DllStructGetData($StartRect,1,3)
    $Area[3] = DllStructGetData($StartRect,1,4)
    $Area[4] = $Area[2] - $Area[0]
    $Area[5] = $Area[3] - $Area[1]
    Return $Area

Currently AutoIt has:
 

_WinAPI_GetWorkArea()

But ....

@mikell I was working a little with your example, as following:

; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Name ..........: _Monitor_GetWorkArea
; Description ...:
; Syntax ........: _Monitor_GetWorkArea()
; Parameters ....: $iDPI                - [optional] an integer value. Default is -1.
; Return values .: Array
; Author ........: mikell
; Modified ......: mLipok
; Remarks .......: HowTO: WinMove($hGui, "", $aWorkAera[0], $aWorkAera[1], $aWorkAera[4], $aWorkAera[5])
; Related .......:
; Link ..........: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/165766-gui-position-minus-taskbar-height/#entry1210698

; Example .......: No
; ===============================================================================================================================
Func _Monitor_GetWorkArea($iDPI = -1)
    Local $tStartRect = DllStructCreate("int[4]")
    Local $pStartRect = DllStructGetPtr($tStartRect)
    If $iDPI = -1 Then
        DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SystemParametersInfo", "int", $SPI_Monitor_GetWorkArea, "int", 0, "ptr", $pStartRect, "int", 0)
    Else
        DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SystemParametersInfoForDpi", "int", $SPI_Monitor_GetWorkArea, "int", 0, "ptr", $pStartRect, "int", 0, "int", $iDPI)
    EndIf

    Local $aArea[6]
    $aArea[0] = DllStructGetData($tStartRect, 1, 1)
    $aArea[1] = DllStructGetData($tStartRect, 1, 2)
    $aArea[2] = DllStructGetData($tStartRect, 1, 3)
    $aArea[3] = DllStructGetData($tStartRect, 1, 4)
    $aArea[4] = $aArea[2] - $aArea[0]
    $aArea[5] = $aArea[3] - $aArea[1]
    Return $aArea
EndFunc   ;==>_Monitor_GetWorkArea


I just add support for DPI but not tested yet, and reading here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/winuser/nf-winuser-systemparametersinfoa

Quote
SPI_GETWORKAREA
0x0030
Retrieves the size of the work area on the primary display monitor. The work area is the portion of the screen not obscured by the system taskbar or by application desktop toolbars. The pvParam parameter must point to a RECT structure that receives the coordinates of the work area, expressed in physical pixel size. Any DPI virtualization mode of the caller has no effect on this output.

To get the work area of a monitor other than the primary display monitor, call the GetMonitorInfo function.

I was wondering how to combine GetMonitorInfo with GetWorkArea ?

I'm trying to combine it all together with:

 

Do you have idea how to combine GetMonitorInfo with GetWorkArea ?

_WinAPI_GetMonitorInfo returns an array, isn't the $array[1] what you're looking for ?  :)

Nevermind the includes, it's just a copy paste i do to make sure it doesnt complain.

Here is one of the results of my work:

    ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $hMonitor = ' & $hMonitor & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & '    Extended code: 0x' & Hex(@extended) & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

    Local $aData = _WinAPI_GetMonitorInfo($hMonitor)
    If Not @error Then
        ConsoleWrite('Handle:      ' & $hMonitor & @CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite('Rectangle:   ' & DllStructGetData($aData[0], 1) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($aData[0], 2) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($aData[0], 3) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($aData[0], 4) & @CRLF)

Better yet use Shell_TrayWnd with $MONITOR_DEFAULTTONEAREST if you cannot know for sure on which monitor the user has set the task bar ..

As to DPI Scaling (future wise) I think it should fit in to the AutoItSetOption category if and when someone gets about and around doing it .. :
