Limiting moves of a borderless window ...

Recommended Posts

snaileater

Hi,

i'm trying to limit the moves of a borderless GUI. i'm on an example taken from Moving and Resizing PopUp GUIs.

I'm using the _SendMessage function so far :

While 1     
    Switch GUIGetMsg()         
    Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN             
    _SendMessage($hGUI, $WM_SYSCOMMAND, $SC_DRAGMOVE, 0)   
    EndSwitch
Wend

I would like to add some constrain on the X,Y coords of the window (for ex. forbid X exceeding 1000) ...

How could i achieve that ? It Seems to me that i have to follow two events at the same time (EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN + EVENT_MOUSEMOVE) but i'm not sure to be on the right track ...

Could anybody help me ?

Thanks ...

WinGetPos  returns an arry 

     $aArray[0] = X position
    $aArray[1] = Y position
    $aArray[2] = Width
    $aArray[3] = Height

if x y exceeds your desired position then reset window to what you want.

This Limits the x,y co-ordinates

Thanks for spending some time on my question Reb but your code is not doing what i would like :

Your code allow the user to go out the "restricted area" and then check whether the moved window respect the x,y limitations.

What i would like is a way to force the x,y limitations during the move ...

      For fun, I'm building an app that opens a webpage and refreshes it every 30 seconds.
      But once the script performs _IEAction($oIE, "refresh"), the GUI closes.
      Any help is appreciated.

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.
