 is it possible to limit it to 5 across? or 4?

dynamitemedia,

How about this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

#include "GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3"

; Put your image paths in this array - sized to match required number of buttons
Global $aImage[12]; = ["Image_Path_1", "Image_Path_2", "Image_Path_3", "Image_Path_4", "Image_Path_5", "Image_Path_6", "Image_Path_7", "Image_Path_8"]
$iCount = UBound($aImage)
; Create array to hold button and label ControlIDs
Global $aButton[$iCount], $aLabel[$iCount]

Mainscript()

Func Mainscript()

    ; Set max dialog size
    $iDialog_Width = 1265

Ok got the padding between each somewhat the way i wanted...  up and down is working, but can prob be cleaned up.

the one issue i am having is when it gets to the final button and i push "UP"  it wont go up to the next row up and exits or just stops.  any ideas?

here is code here, and again i am sure it can be cleaned up, but it works!  99.9% lol

ok found that this was working 
 

$dwnLabel = $aButton[$i] - 24

only cause original count of images was 22

how do i make that work with ANY amount of images  if i set it up  as  $images = 222 for example

$dwnLabel = $aButton[$i] - $aCount

will do the job and

$dwnLabel = $aButton[$i] - $aButton[0]

also.

i wopuld like more padding on the one farthest to the right next to scroll bar 

Make allowance for the scrollbar width like this:

; Determine button width
$iButton_Dim = Floor(($iDialog_Width - 10 - _WinAPI_GetSystemMetrics(2)) / $iCol_Count)

Ok i got what seems to be working...  its not tossing any errors and seems to be doing what its supposed to...

if someone can look at this section and see if there is a way to clean up... honestly its odd seems no rhyme or reason why its working :(  just kept messing with the numbers.

it paints very odd and flashes

Like only 50 per page?

Just how many images are you thinking of using in total? If you are using hundreds of images, then I am  not at all surprised that the GUI "flashes" as you scroll given the massive amount of redrawing that must be happening.

yes that is why i was thinking of using pagination or maybe separate gui windows and still use pagination too...

like my one feed is 226  and another is 124
 

just seems the pagination would clean things up better

ViciousXUSMC,

No probs - just pointing it out.

dynamitemedia,

How about using tabs? With 10 or 15 per tab that should allow for a reasonable viewing size.

can you explain what you mean by Tabs?

i was thinking maybe 20 at a time then a "Next" button... im working on some of that now...

thinking of having a   <<<   Previous           then a   HOME                then a Next >>>>

trying to get it to work where if only this amount displayed show only  Next,  almost got it i think lol

Look at GUICtrlCreateTab - the idea would be to have 10-15 images per tab.
