[solved] List scroll horizontal - undocumented feature?

Recommended Posts

 

$ListLHT = GUICtrlCreateList("", 8, 152, 664, 279,BitOR($WS_GROUP,$WS_BORDER,$WS_VSCROLL,$WS_HSCROLL))

 

Hi, code works, but not documented.  Its not in the Help file, but HSCROLL works for List :)

3.3.12.0

If I am wrong, please point me in the right direction.

Have a nice day now

Skysnake,

Why would it not work - the style can be applied to any control with the ability to scroll horizontally. And why do you say it is "not documented"? It is not part of the default style AutoIt applies to the control, but there is nothing to say that it cannot be added if the coder so wishes.

am i being silly?

the Help file contains this for GuiCtrlCreateList

mk:@MSITStore:C:\Program%20Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm::/html/functions/GUICtrlCreateList.htm

 

[optional] Defines the style of the control. See GUI Control Styles Appendix.
    default ( -1) : $LBS_SORT, $WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL
    forced styles : $WS_TABSTOP, $LBS_NOTIFY

 

mk:@MSITStore:C:\Program%20Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm::/html/appendix/GUIStyles.htm#ListBox

 

this section does not contain a reference to HScroll...

 

Undocumented

I was under the impression I could only use Style option defined.  If this is not so, which other Style options are available which the Help file does not list?  I look at the Help file to see which options are available - HScroll is not listed.

Have I expressed myself properly?

$WS_HSCROLL is in due place in the help file under GUI control styles, just like $WS_VSCROLL. It's also used in a number of GUI examples.

Skysnake,

Look at the headers of the style constants - the ListBox specific ones begin $LBS_*, while the Scroll styles begin $WS_* which can be applied to any "window".  So the styles are documented, but you have to look in the correct place.

Yes, that seems surprising at first but that's how MS calls things.

Skysnake,

In simple terms everything in Windows is a "window" with a unique handle - only in human parlance are they are called GUIs, dialogs, controls, etc.  So you can apply $WS_* styles to practically anything - but I would counsel against getting too adventurous as some styles might well not do what you expect and cause big problems!

Hi M23,

I'm in a bit of a hurry: we just had quadruplets(*) yesterday and they are very demanding! Feed them every 30 minutes for instance (night & day)...

* They are wren birds, aged 5 days.

      Hi
      so i ran into a Problem i didn't expect to get stuck on.
      It sounds simple (and probably is) but i can't seem to get it to work
      So i created a Combobox and filled it with some things from an array which worked fine.
      $combobox = GUICtrlCreateCombo($list[0], 160, 200, 265, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL)) GuiCtrlSetData($list, "|" & _ArrayToString($list,Default,1),$list[2]) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, 400, 0, "Arial") Now i want to change the style of the combobox from $CBS_DROPDOWN to $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST via a checkbox.
      $Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox1", 160, 96, 105, 25) Case $Checkbox1 If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then Call ("Read_only") Else Call ("Edit") Endif Func Read_only() GUICtrlSetStyle ($Combobox1,something to change it to $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST) EndFunc Func Edit() GUICtrlSetStyle ($Combobox1,something to change it to $CBS_DROPDOW) EndFunc I tried using $CBS_DROPDOWN and $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST but it simply does nothing.
      I also tried $ES_READONLY which kinda worked, it changed the combobox so i couldn't change the input via dropdown anymore but i could still type in it via keyboard (which i dont want).
      It's essential that its Editable but once the checkbox is checked the combobox becomes readonly so you can't type in it anymore but you can still choose between the items in the list. (It does not have to save your current input if you write something in it and then check the Checkbox it would be best if it would simpy jump back to the first item in the list)
      Im sure this is a simple thing but after long google search im tired of my stupidity can someone give me a push in the right direction?

      Hello
      Dear Sirs, I have a question please

      ______

      #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <UpDownConstants.au3> goto() func Goto() local $wGoto = GUICreate("go to spissific position", 250, 180, @DesktopWidth / 2 - 192, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 235, -1) GUICtrlCreateLabel("please write a corect position to go to it", 50, 10, 220, 20) GUICtrlCreateLabel("hours", 0, 80, 100, 30) local $Inp1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("00", 0, 90, 100, 20, $ES_NUMBER + $WS_TABSTOP)     GUICtrlCreateUpdown($Inp1, $UDS_ARROWKEYS) GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 23, 0) GUICtrlCreateLabel("minuts", 110, 80, 100, 30) local $Inp2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("00", 110, 90, 100, 20, $ES_NUMBER + $WS_TABSTOP)     GUICtrlCreateUpdown($Inp2, $UDS_ARROWKEYS) GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 60, 0) GUICtrlCreateLabel("seconds", 220, 80, 100, 30) local $Inp3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("00", 220, 90, 100, 20, $ES_NUMBER + $WS_TABSTOP)     GUICtrlCreateUpdown($Inp3, $UDS_ARROWKEYS) GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 60, 0) local $Ok = GUICtrlCreateButton("&ok", 0, 150, 50, 30, 0x01) local $cancel = GUICtrlCreateButton("&cancel", 200, 150, 50, 30) GUISetState(@sw_show, $WgoTo) while 1 switch GUIGetMSG() case $GUI_Event_Close, $cancel exit case $OK local $read1 = GUICtrlRead($inp1) if $read1 >= 1 then $Read1 = ($Read1*60)*60 local $read2 = GUICtrlRead($inp2) if $read2 >= 1 then $Read2 = $Read2*60 local $read3 = GUICtrlRead($inp3) GUIDelete($WgoTo) Return $read1+$read2+$read3 exit endSwitch Wend EndFunc

      Hello, dears.
      First I apologise to you for the stupid question I'm going to ask.
      is the default style for Windows created using AutoIt   a dialog box style?
      I decided to ask this question
      Because I am using a screen reader
      If i open any program that is designed using autoit, the screen reader read for example,  
      test dialog
      but If i open any other program, for example goldwave, it read goldwav only without a word dialog
      Is there a solution to this
      The code i used to create the window is:
      $hGUI = GUICreate(str("title"), 500, 420, -1, -1, BitOr($WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_CAPTION), BitOr($WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES,$WS_EX_LAYERED,$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE,$WS_EX_STATICEDGE))
      I hope to find a solution to this problem
      please Accept my greetings, and thank you very much.

      In documentation for:
       
      #include <FTPEx.au3> _FTP_Connect ( $hInternetSession, $sServerName, $sUsername, $sPassword [, $iPassive = 0 [, $iServerPort = 0 [, $iService = $INTERNET_SERVICE_FTP [, $iFlags = 0 [, $fuContext = 0]]]]] ) There are two parameters for Passive:
       
      My question is: 

      What is a difference beetwen  using :
      $iPassive = 1
      and
      $iFlags =     $INTERNET_FLAG_PASSIVE
