SetResizing misaligned

Guys, check this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Form 1", 636, 530, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX))

#region First Group
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 510, 456, 117, 50)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)

GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 8, 456, 498, 50)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
#endregion

#region Second Group
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 8, 409, 268, 50)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)

GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 280, 409, 347, 50)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
#endregion

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Run and maximize the window. The space between the two groups of the #region Second Group is different from the normal window ( the first group instead is equal in both cases! ) and this is a problem for me because the control inside that group is misaligned and doesn't fit

In this image, the "green" is the normal window of #region Second Group, in "red"  when is maximized and you can see the difference in pixel:

There is a way to solve or better align the groups? Thanks

Terenz ,

 

this is a problem for me because the control inside that group is misaligned and doesn't fit

So why not get the actual size of the group and resize the control to fit? :huh:

And you do realise that you have different resizing parameters for the 2 rows? So it is hardly surprising that they resize differently. I think you will have to resize the second group manually if you want the spacing to remain constant:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

$bResized = False

$hGUI = GUICreate("Form 1", 636, 530, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX))
GUISetBkColor(0xCCffCC)

#region First Group
$cGroup_1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("1", 510, 456, 117, 50)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKSIZE)
;GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1) ; No need if you immediately create another group

$cGroup_2 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("2", 8, 456, 498, 50)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
;GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
#endregion

#region Second Group
$cGroup_3 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("3", 8, 409, 268, 50)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
;GUICtrlCreateGroup("4", -99, -99, 1, 1)

$cGroup_4 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("4", 280, 409, 347, 50)
;GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1) ; But now you need it
#endregion

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

; Get spacing between 1 & 2
$aPos_1 = ControlGetPos($hGUI, "", $cGroup_1)
$aPos_2 = ControlGetPos($hGUI, "", $cGroup_2)
$iSpacing = $aPos_1[0] - ($aPos_2[0] + $aPos_2[2])

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, "_WM_SIZE")

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    If $bResized Then
        $aClient = WinGetClientSize($hGUI)
        $aPos_3 = ControlGetPos($hGUI, "", $cGroup_3)
        ; Set the same spacing
        Local $iX_4 = $aPos_3[0] + $aPos_3[2] + $iSpacing
        ; Determine correct width
        Local $iW_4 = $aClient[0] - $iX_4 - 10
        ; Resize the control
        ControlMove($hGUI, "", $cGroup_4, $iX_4, $aPos_3[1], $iW_4, $aPos_3[3])

        $bResized = False
    EndIf

WEnd

Func _WM_SIZE($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)

    $bResized = True

EndFunc
But you suprised us all yesterday with the "Maximize/Restore" button - see if you can do it again today! ;)

Yes i know they have different resizing parameters. I don't think today i'll surprise you, the only thing i know is GUICtrlSetResizing is limited. I don't have idea how GUICtrlSetResizing work, the last avaible source of autoit don't have it.

Anyway i'll post a couple of example of many, many optional parameter then the Resizing function miss:

Control Positioning and Sizing using a C++ Helper Class

 
From one of the article: "So far, the anchors of the controls always referred to the edges of the main dialog window. However, there are cases where this solution is not flexible enough" etc.
 
P.S. In  _WM_SIZE $bResized become True only when i'll release the mouse from the "manual" resizing, so ControlMove apply only when the resizing is finished, instead GUICtrlSetResizing is in "real time"
