Graphic Gui display problem

19 posts in this topic

I'm trying to create a GUI that is split (2 ListViews and with draggable divider) 

I followed some example code and it seems to work, but graphically it's like the GUI isn't redrawing correctly. It is leaving graphic "remnants" of where things used to be, or the borders of the controls are missing / not in the right spots. 

Here is a simple example you can run to see if you are seeing what I am seeing. 

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
 #include <GuiStatusbar.au3>


opt("GUIResizeMode",$GUI_DOCKAUTO)
$Form1  = GUICreate("Test", 660, 320, 192, 125, BitOr($WS_SIZEBOX,  $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU,$WS_CLIPCHILDREN))

$ListView1  = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3",0, 10, 200, 300, -1,$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 205, 10, 450, 300, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
GUISetState()

While 1
     $msg = GUIGetMsg()
     Select
         Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
             ExitLoop
     EndSelect
 WEnd
 Exit

When you run the code - Resize the window, Maximize it and then restore it. When I do this, I see the graphical glitches. 

I've also attached a pic showing the effect I am seeing.

Here is an easy fix:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiStatusbar.au3>

Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKAUTO)

$Form1 = GUICreate("Test", 660, 320, 192, 125, BitOR($WS_POPUP, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW)) ;<< here

$ListView1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 0, 10, 200, 300, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 205, 10, 450, 300, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd

I've narrowed it down to $WS_CLIPCHILDREN

If I use that style - it causes the graphic issues whenever I resize controls.

Without it though, I don't get the visual update I want when I drag my vertical split. From what I am reading, there is a lot of trouble resizing controls on the fly like this :(

Have you tried the fix I proposed?

It does everything the same as your original script, without the graphic issues. ;)

EDIT: If there is more to the script, please post it so we can help you further if my solution did not fix this.

Your primairy problem lies in the $WS_CLIPCHILDREN on GUICreate

This would be the working code:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
 #include <GuiStatusbar.au3>

opt("GUIResizeMode",$GUI_DOCKAUTO)
$Form1  = GUICreate("Test", 660, 320, 192, 125, BitOr($WS_SIZEBOX,  $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU))
$ListView1  = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3",10, 10, 200, 300, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 215, 10, 435, 300, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
GUISetState()

While 1
     $msg = GUIGetMsg()
     Select
         Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
             ExitLoop
     EndSelect
 WEnd
 Exit

But more little things like $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE are used om GUICtrlCreateListView...

I would start with the following to have the edges stay the same width:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiStatusbar.au3>

$Form1  = GUICreate("Test", 660, 320, 192, 125, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_POPUP))
$ListView1  = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3",10, 10, 200, 300)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, BitOR($GUI_DOCKLEFT, $GUI_DOCKTOP, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM, $GUI_DOCKWIDTH))
$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 215, 10, 435, 300)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, BitOR($GUI_DOCKLEFT, $GUI_DOCKTOP, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT))
GUISetState()

While 1
     Switch GUIGetMsg()
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
             ExitLoop
     EndSwitch
WEnd

Exit

DutchCoder have you tested that? As, it does not resize correctly.

JakeKenmode - $WS_POPUP -- creates a popup window

                         $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW -- Creates an overlapped window with the WS_OVERLAPPED, WS_CAPTION, WS_SYSMENU, WS_THICKFRAME, WS_MINIMIZEBOX, and WS_MAXIMIZEBOX styles. Same as the WS_TILEDWINDOW style.

Yes thanks, I am aware of the styles via the help files. 

Here is a modified example of the splitter code I found on these forums that I am using. Many of the UDF's were old and needed to be updated to work correctly.

; Note(s):          This is just a proof of concept at the moment.
;                   This could be tweaked into a udf with a little more work

                             $nh)
 EndFunc;==>SplitterHort

Now  if this is run, you will see the graphic issues. 

If you simply remove $WS_CLIPCHILDREN it will "work" but you will not see the split's updating properly until you mouse up. The clipping allows you to drag the split and see it move. That is what I am looking to achieve. 

I mean - If I had to go without it to avoid glitches, I will, but if there is a way to fix it - I'd love to investigate it :)

JakeKenmode,

Why not use my GUIFrame UDF and let it do all the work for you? :huh:

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

#include "GUIFrame.au3"

$hGUI  = GUICreate("Test", 660, 320, 192, 125, BitOr($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_SYSMENU))

GUISetState()

$iIndex = _GUIFrame_Create($hGUI, 0, 200)

_GUIFrame_Switch($iIndex, 1)

$ListView1  = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3",0, 10, 200, 300, -1,$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)

_GUIFrame_Switch($iIndex, 2)

$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 0, 10, 450, 300, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)

_GUIFrame_ResizeSet(0)

_GUIFrame_ResizeReg()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
That seems to work quite nicely. :)

I would love to :) I didn't know of its existence till just now, so thanks for that! 

I do seem to have a problem though - that file isn't on my system (or in the path it's looking in). I'll dig around, perhaps I need an update 

Current Version: Version 3.4.1

*edit using SciTE 3.4.4 now and AutoIT 3.3.12 - still can't find that include. 

and.... one day I'll learn to read - and realize you said "why not try my UDF"

JakeKenmode,

It is one of my personal UDFs - look in my sig for the link to find it. Once you have downloaded it you might like to look at the Adding UDFs to AutoIt and SciTE tutorial in the Wiki to see how to get it running properly on your system. ;)

Yeah - I added it, and it does work :)

One little thing, Is there a way to stop the slight flicker I see on the drag? (not a major thing, just being picky! haha)

JakeKenmode,

"Picky" is the word! :D

You are resizing ListViews - which are one of the flakiest controls in Windows - so I feel a little flicker is a small price to pay. ;)

Yeah - im sticking with  it, The users are low end users as it is. I'm sure they won't even notice anything. Visual Studio has made me picky! it's not my fault! HAHA

Thanks again for the UDF. I'm using your GUIListViewEx.au3 as well for the final result. 

How do UDF list views function with your GUIFrame.au3? Do they play nice?

JakeKenmode,

There is no reason why they should not as the "frames" are just standard GUIs. I suggest you try it and see. ;)

@ Melba

Am I missing something here? I have been tinkering for a while and I can't seem to get this one to behave like the built in Listview. 

When resize the Window the UDF ListView doesn't move, nor does it update if I drag the separator. 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include "GUIListViewEx.au3"
#include "GUIFrame.au3"

GUISetState()

$iIndex = _GUIFrame_Create($hGUI, 0, 200)

_GUIFrame_Switch($iIndex, 1)

$ListView1  = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3",0, 10, 200, 300, -1,-1)

JakeKenmode,

UDF-created controls do not respond to the native GUICtrlSetResizing commands, so you have to do it yourself as I explained here. A good reason to stick with the native ListViews unless you really need the UDF ones. ;)

Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:

Spoiler

ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Gotcha :) I'll see if I can achieve what I am trying to do with native ListViews then.

I wrote a little routine for you (and others)

I hope it helps

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiStatusbar.au3>
AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode', 2)
$DividerOffset = 330

$Form1  = GUICreate("Test", 660, 320, 192, 125, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_POPUP))
$ListView1  = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 5, 5, $DividerOffset - 5, 310)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, BitOR($GUI_DOCKLEFT, $GUI_DOCKTOP, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM, $GUI_DOCKWIDTH))
$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", $DividerOffset + 5, 5, 660 - $DividerOffset - 10, 310)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, BitOR($GUI_DOCKLEFT, $GUI_DOCKTOP, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT))
$Divider = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $DividerOffset, 5, 5, 310)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, BitOR($GUI_DOCKLEFT, $GUI_DOCKTOP, $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT))
GUICtrlSetCursor(-1, 13)
GUISetState()

While 1
     Switch GUIGetMsg()
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
             ExitLoop
         Case $Divider
             Resize()
     EndSwitch
WEnd

Exit

Func Resize()
    GUISetCursor(13, 1, $Form1)
    $siz = WinGetClientSize($Form1)
    Do
        $arr = GUIGetCursorInfo($Form1)
        $pos = MouseGetPos(0)
        Select
            Case $pos < 100
                $pos = 100
            Case $pos > $siz[0] - 100
                $pos = $siz[0] - 100
        EndSelect
        If $pos <> $DividerOffset Then
            $DividerOffset = $pos
            GUICtrlSetPos($ListView1, -1, -1, $DividerOffset - 5)
            GUICtrlSetPos($ListView2, $DividerOffset + 5, -1, $siz[0] - $DividerOffset - 10)
        EndIf
    Until Not $arr[2]
    GUICtrlSetPos($Divider, $DividerOffset)
    GUISetCursor(-1, 0, $Form1)
EndFunc
