Font Ignore Windows Display Settings

Recommended Posts

In my code, I'm using GUICtrlCreateLabel to create a label and GUICtrlSetFont to set the font. Example...

$SELlbl = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Hello World", 8, 8, 286, 24)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")

This works in my GUI unless display settings are changed in Windows 7 from 100% to 125-150%. Then the text is blown up and is misaligned with my GUI. 

Is there a simple way to ignore the display setting and force the font size?

      Hello, it has been a long time since I have posted here
      I am working on an AutoIt project where I need to enable to user to interactively choose any point or coordinate on the screen... something like a big overlay where the user can click anywhere on the screen to select that point. @UEZ's screenshot tool may have something similar to what I need:
      I just checked the source code for the tool and I see that the Mark_Area function has a part in selecting the area to screenshot, I tried to figure out how it works but it is simply too complex and long...
      So I was wondering if there were any examples of interactively selecting points on a screen? Maybe an UDF that I can just use in my script to make the whole thing a matter of adding few lines
      Thank you for the replies in advance!

      Hi all,
      I have a script 
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IEAttach("anythinghere") $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("div") $oCollection = $oIE.document.getElementsByClassName("x-panel-btn-td") MsgBox(0, "", $oCollection.length) which shows 8 results, how can i see what those results are, and i need also to get ID of 4th in a row of them

      Please help

      Hello Autoit!
      Today i discovered that pixelgetcolor doesn't adapt to the DPI of the system, and i want to fix this somehow as my laptop uses 120 DPI.
      This is what i have came up with so far:
      AutoItSetOption ( "CaretCoordMode" , 0) AutoItSetOption ( "MouseCoordMode" , 0) AutoItSetOption ( "PixelCoordMode" , 0) AutoItSetOption ( "GUICoordMode" , 0) #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Misc.au3> #include <WinAPIGdi.au3> ; enum _PROCESS_DPI_AWARENESS Global Const $PROCESS_DPI_UNAWARE = 0 Global Const $PROCESS_SYSTEM_DPI_AWARE = 1 Global Const $PROCESS_PER_MONITOR_DPI_AWARE = 2 ; enum _MONITOR_DPI_TYPE Global Const $MDT_EFFECTIVE_DPI = 0 Global Const $MDT_ANGULAR_DPI = 1 Global Const $MDT_RAW_DPI = 2 Global Const $MDT_DEFAULT = $MDT_EFFECTIVE_DPI HotKeySet('{ESC}','Terminate') Func Terminate() Exit EndFunc $iPD = 1 while 1 $aPos = WinGetPos("[ACTIVE]") ToolTip (PixelGetColor( MouseGetPos()[0]*(96/_DPI(0)), MouseGetPos()[1]*(96/_DPI(1))) & ', ' & MouseGetPos()[0] & ', ' & MouseGetPos()[1] ) if $iPD = 1 and Not _IsPressed(22) Then $iPD = 0 Sleep(100) EndIf if $iPD = 0 And _IsPressed(22) Then ;Page down is pressed ClipPut( 'PixelGetColor($aPos[2]' & '*' & MouseGetPos(0)/$aPos[2] & ',' & '$aPos[3]' & '*' & MouseGetPos(1)/$aPos[3] & ')' & '=' & PixelGetColor( MouseGetPos()[0], MouseGetPos()[1])) $iPD = 1 EndIf WEnd ;Functions Func _DPI($iCordinate) ;0 for x and 1 for y _WinAPI_SetProcessDpiAwareness($PROCESS_SYSTEM_DPI_AWARE) $aMonitors = _WinAPI_EnumDisplayMonitors() $aDPI = _WinAPI_GetDpiForMonitor($aMonitors[1][0], $MDT_DEFAULT) Return $aDPI[$iCordinate] EndFunc Func _WinAPI_SetProcessDpiAwareness($DPIAware) DllCall("Shcore.dll", "long", "SetProcessDpiAwareness", "int", $DPIAware) If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0) EndFunc Func _WinAPI_GetDpiForMonitor($hMonitor, $dpiType) Local $X, $Y $aRet = DllCall("Shcore.dll", "long", "GetDpiForMonitor", "long", $hMonitor, "int", $dpiType, "uint*", $X, "uint*", $Y) If @error Or Not IsArray($aRet) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0) Local $aDPI[2] = [$aRet[3],$aRet[4]] Return $aDPI EndFunc  
      I'm pretty sure it has to do with me using the DPI in the wrong way as i dont really understand it (even after searching around on the internet for like an hour)
      It would really help if anyone could help me on the right track

      I'm trying to create a simple clock widget that automatically scales the text to the size of the window. I came up with the following method, but it doesn't work as well as I'd like. It especially has trouble scaling to the width of the window for some reason (in the example, try resizing the window to be narrow and tall).
      Does anyone have a better method?
      #include <Misc.au3> #include <WinAPIConv.au3> #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Global $_FONT_FAMILY = 'Arial', $_LB_TEXT Main() Func Main() _GDIPlus_Startup() Local $hGUI GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, WM_SIZE) $hGUI = GUICreate('', 300, 100, Default, Default, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)) $_LB_TEXT = GUICtrlCreateLabel('This is a string', 0, 0, 300, 100, BitOR($SS_CENTER, $SS_CENTERIMAGE)) GUICtrlSetFont($_LB_TEXT, _MeasureString($hGUI, GUICtrlRead($_LB_TEXT), $_FONT_FAMILY), 0, 0, $_FONT_FAMILY, 5) GUISetState() Local $iGM While 1 $iGM = GUIGetMsg() Switch $iGM Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd _GDIPlus_Shutdown() EndFunc Func WM_SIZE($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam) GUICtrlSetFont($_LB_TEXT, _MeasureString($hWnd, GUICtrlRead($_LB_TEXT), $_FONT_FAMILY), 0, 0, $_FONT_FAMILY, 5) EndFunc Func _MeasureString($hWnd, $sString, $sFont = 'Arial') Local $iError, $aSize, $hGraphic, $hFormat, $hFamily, $tLayout, $iFontSize, $hFont, $aInfo If Not IsHWnd($hWnd) Then $hWnd = GUICtrlGetHandle($hWnd) EndIf $aSize = WinGetClientSize($hWnd) $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hWnd) $hFormat = _GDIPlus_StringFormatCreate() $hFamily = _GDIPlus_FontFamilyCreate($sFont) $tLayout = _GDIPlus_RectFCreate(0, 0, $aSize[0], $aSize[1]) $iFontSize = 0 Do If Not $hFamily Then $iError = 1 $iFontSize = 10 ExitLoop EndIf $iFontSize += 1 $hFont = _GDIPlus_FontCreate($hFamily, $iFontSize, 0) $aInfo = _GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString($hGraphic, $sString, $hFont, $tLayout, $hFormat) _GDIPlus_FontDispose($hFont) If $aInfo[1] = 0 Then ExitLoop Until DllStructGetData($aInfo[0], 3) >= $aSize[0] Or DllStructGetData($aInfo[0], 4) >= $aSize[1] $iFontSize -= 1 _GDIPlus_FontFamilyDispose($hFamily) _GDIPlus_StringFormatDispose($hFormat) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic) Return SetError($iError, 0, $iFontSize) EndFunc
