Parent window always above child window

Recommended Posts

I'm essentially trying to create a pop-out window from the Parent GUI by using a child gui (So the child always stays aligned with the parent and I don't have to track the position of the parent and update the child myself). I've got it tracking and got the pop-out window working (pretty smoothly) but I need the child to always be below the parent.

I tried using GUISetOnTop and using a variant of different styles and exStyles but none seemed to work as needed. Is this possible?

And here's some code. (Hovering over the right side of the Parent window will slide the child to the right, when the cursor goes out of bounds the child goes back to the start.)

Realized I didn't need to use child because the child window would have been hidden anyway so the user would never know if it was behind the main GUI or not. Ended up just moving it off the screen. Created a $frmDummy GUI and made the $frmChild a child of that one just so there was no toolbar icon. Once the mouse goes out of bounds the $frmChild starts to go back to hiding behind the $frmMain GUI. Once the $x_offset is at 0 the $frmChild is moved out of the screen. (Also have an extra if statement after each while loop that moves the $frmChild to see if the user maybe moved the mouse back into, or out of, the bounding area, depending on the state of $displayed.)

 

(Hopefully all of that made sense)

 

Came out pretty smooth.

InunoTaishou,

that just resizes the GUI

I would like to point out that the UDF does a bit more than that - but it certainly does not slide as you require.

Have you looked into animating the GUI? Take a look at my Toast or Notify UDFs to see how you can do it. If I find time later (I am about to go out) I will see if I can produce an example based on your code above.

My god, I didn't realize there was a WinAPI function that could do what I needed!

Yours is pretty nice, looks like a rolling window, I was looking for a sliding window and $AW_SLIDE does exactly that. Thank you very much!

It looks like the GUI becomes disabled while the API function is moving the child though. It does what I need in less code but it doesn't work as well as what I was wanting it for, still really nice function to make some pretty GUIs.

 

And by what I was wanting I mean that if the use moves away from the area that causes the window to move out, it starts to go back into retracted. If the user goes back into the area that causes the window to move out again it starts to move the window out again. The _WinAPI_AnimateWindow looks extremely useful though.

      Often I need to create a panel to monitor a lot of things (users, files, items etc) so I use this piece of code to create a dynamic grid of buttons.
      The number of buttons is variable, and it's related to the size of the gui, the size of the buttons and the distance between buttons.
      Every "button" is a set of three with a real button stacked on the top of two labels, imagine reading a .CSV file or an array or a database and displaying all the things using the labels (Text and COLOR too) and clickin' on the relative button you can call further info on the item or call a particular function.
      So you can decide the number of the buttons, the width of the buttons, and also the distance  between buttons.
      It's quick and dirty, simple  and very improvable (I know..) so fell free to play with the code.

      Hi,
      I have an issue with a script being used for a Toddler group register. 
      I list the kids, with their carer and additional carer in ComboLists so a number of carers can be registered per kid. 
      When page down to a second page of kids, the carers are correctly displayed but when I roll the mouse over the combo boxes it reverts to those on the first page.
      I am using the following style codes with the combo boxes - BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_SIMPLE) and they are only holding 2 or 3 entries.
      Here is the code for the pagedisplay function which is called for each line of the registration page (10 lines, currently 55 kid records)) 
      Func PageDisp($L)
      ;Clears display once all records displayed
          If $L > $KidsFound Then
              $Label2[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" ", 75, $v, 280, 29)
              $Label352[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 1040, $v, 100, 29)
              $Label152[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 380, $v, 220, 29)
              $Label252[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",  650, $v, 220, 29);
              Return
          Endif
          $Kid2d = $Kid1d[$L] ; sets value to find additional carers
      If $Kid1a[$L] <> "" then
          $Label2[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("(" & $L & ")" & $Kid1a[$L] & " " & $Kid1b[$L] , 75, $v, 280, 29)
          GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "Segoe UI")
              If $Kid1e[$L] <> "" then
                  $Combo[$L] = GUICtrlCreateCombo("(" & $L & ")"  & $Kid1e[$L], 380, $v, 220, 29, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_SIMPLE ))

                  Endif
              Endif
          Endif
      EndFunc
      I hope someone can point me in the right direction as I can't see how this is happening
      Many thanks

      Hello,
      i searched the forum for something near, but with no success...
      I have Combobox control with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style with some items (for example (one, two, nine).
      When i want to select the item, using keyboard, the items are selected only on First letter base (for example when i type "on", Nine is selected).
      Is there some trick to force the combobox with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style to accept more than the First letter during selecting the items from the list?
      Mi wanted result is the same as for example - when you type "fir" on the desktop, Firefox is automatically selected.
      Thank you so much.

      I'm trying to implement a scrolling list of controls. I have it sort of working using the GUIScrollBars_Ex UDF by @Melba23 found here. I also want to be able to tab through the controls, which I have accomplished by adding $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT to the child GUI. The problem is that with that style applied, the scrollbar doesn't act like a scrollbar, instead it acts as a title bar to the child GUI letting you drag the it around (and you can even "maximize" it by double clicking).
      Any ideas?
      #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include "GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3" $iButtonCount = 30 $hParent = GUICreate('Example', 300, 230) $hChild = GUICreate('', 300, 200, 0, 0, BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_TABSTOP), $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT, $hParent) For $i = 0 To $iButtonCount GUICtrlCreateButton('Button in list', 0, $i*30, 300, 30) Next GUISwitch($hParent) GUICtrlCreateButton('More Buttons', 0, 200, 150, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('More Buttons', 150, 200, 150, 30) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hParent) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild) _GUIScrollbars_Generate($hChild, 100, $iButtonCount * 30+20) While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd
