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 ...

      Hi Community,

      I use a UDF by @smashly to play a video in a GUI. That works fine for my main monitor.
      But when I change the X and Y positions of the GUI (also for the video) to my second or third monitor, the video plays, I can hear the sound of it, but I don't see the video.

      I debugged the UDF and checked the Microsoft description for MCI Command Strings which are used in the UDF (docs.microsoft...) - everything is fine, so I got no clue why the video isn't displayed.

      PlayVideoTest.au3:
       
      VideoInGui_by_Smashky.au3 (UDF):
       
      The example video:
       
      It would be great when anyone can help .
      Is there maybe a other way to play (display videos in GUI)?

      Thanks for any suggestion - I'm grateful!

      My problem: if you move the child window at left upper corner to another place and move either H or V scrollbar the child GUI will be moved properly. BUT if you have scrolled the scrollbars to the right bottom of the image and move the child GUI to that corner, too then the child GUI jumps if you click on one of the scrollbars.
      Is there something that I didn't consider?

      Hi All,

      MAIN QUESTION:
      Is it possible to Call specific function within a GUI

      So I have a script with multiple functions although I don't want to use every function every time.
      My Idea is to create a simple GUI which allows me to select what functions I want to use then run the funtions by clicking a button.
      I have already made a GUI which allows me to select specific .exe's I would like to run after selection it runs the .exe one by one.
      This script is on my work laptops and cannot access it right now.
       
      Who can help me with this?
      GUIcreate
      Func1 
      Func2
      Func3
      Then have a boxes which allows me to select the specif Func.(I used GUIChecked and Unchecked in my other script)
      Then a button which executes/calls the selected functions

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
