Resize and move window example not working for me, don't know how to change parameters....

Recommended Posts

I have read the help files, and tried the example, but nothing is happening, I see some code 0,0,0,0 and changed settings, but the window does nothing.

How can I change the parameters for window size and position, where in the code and how?

 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Assign a Local variable the handle of the NotePad window
    Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Notepad]")

    ; If the window does not exists, display a message and return False.
    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Notepad window not found.")
        Return False
    EndIf

    ; Assign a Local variable the style of the Notepad window.
    Local $iStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong($hWnd, $GWL_STYLE)

    ; Remove from the window style the MAXIMIZEBOX, MINIMIZEBOX and SIZEBOX styles.
    $iStyle = BitXOR($iStyle, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX)

    ; Set the style of the window.
    _WinAPI_SetWindowLong($hWnd, $GWL_STYLE, $iStyle)

    ; Apply the style
    _WinAPI_SetWindowPos($hWnd, $HWND_TOP, 0, 0, 0, 0, BitOR($SWP_FRAMECHANGED, $SWP_NOMOVE, $SWP_NOSIZE))
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Thanks

Hi!

This code works perfectly for me, but all it does is removing Notepad window's maximize and minimize buttons, as well as not allowing the window to be resized.

If you want to change a window position and size, you could try using WinMove() function. If you want to get the current window position and size, then use WinGetPos().

Edited by Jefrey
sorry, it's WinMove(), not WinPos()

What I am trying to do is this:

 

1. Open a notepad window (it will open on the size it was manually set last time the program ran)

2. Resize the window to 100px. wide  by 100px. high

3. Move the window 100px. on Y axis and move it to 100px. on X axis

Basically, I want to automate grabbing the window by hand and setting it's size with the mouse.

The code in first post seems to be fine. But don't use $SWP_NOMOVE or $SWP_NOSIZE flags in _WinAPI_SetWindowPos if you want to move or resize the window.

If you want to rely on AutoIt native functions (easier to understand), then here's your code:

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]")
WinMove("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 100, 100, 100, 100, 100)

The first line runs Notepad.

The second line waits until Notepad window shows up.

The third line moves Notepad window to 100px in x axis and 100px in y axis, as well as resize it to 100px of width and 100px of height, on a speed of 100, as you said you want to simulate the mouse action (slowest - the minimum is 1 - fastest - and if you just ignore this argument it will move instantly). 

WinMove ( "title", "text", x, y [, width [, height [, speed]]] )

Here's the documentation for that function: https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/WinMove.htm

Im having an issue that soon after i move the screen go back to the same position.

I created a infinite while loop after i call the function that moves the screen to check if it was because the script was not running anymore but it is not.

Soon after i resize and position to 0,0 the screen comes back

      please i need your help today
      am trying to make the list of features in list view and control it
      am using the dism command line to read output
      i've made the code
      but i found some problems
      what i need is the list of features in 2d array
      $array[$n][0]= name $array[$i][1] = state
      when i tested the code
      it give me some results that i don't need to it e.g
      ------ ------  | --------
      or
      name       | state
      i need just the list of features and there state
      please help me to do that
      here is my example
      #RequireAdmin #NoTrayIcon #include <AutoItConstants.au3> Wow64EnableWow64FsRedirection(false) _Windows_Get_Features() func _Windows_Get_Features() local $a_FeaturesArray[1][2] $a_FeaturesArray[0][0] local $i_Dism_Run = Run("DISM /online /english /get-features /format:table", "", @sw_hide, BitOR($STDERR_CHILD, $STDOUT_CHILD)) local $s_OutputDism = "", $a_OutPutDism While 1 $s_OutputDism = StdoutRead($i_Dism_Run) If @error Then exitLoop if ($s_OutputDism = "") or (StringRegExp($s_OutputDism, "^((\-){1,})?(?:\s)\|?(?:\s)((\-){1,})$", 0) = 1) then ContinueLoop if (StringRegExp($s_OutputDism, "((([\s\d\-\+\_\,]{1})\|([\s\d\-\+\_\,]{1})){1,})", 0) = 1) then $a_OutPutDism = StringSplit($s_OutputDism, @lf) for $i = 1 to $a_OutPutDism[0] if msgBox(1, $i, $a_OutPutDism[$i]) = 1 then exitLoop next endIf Wend endFunc func Wow64EnableWow64FsRedirection($b_Enabled) local $h_OpenFS = DLLOpen("kernel32.dll") local $Return = DllCall($h_OpenFS, "boolean", "Wow64EnableWow64FsRedirection", "boolean", $b_Enabled) if @error then DLLClose($h_OpenFS) Return SetError(@error, @extended, -1) else DLLClose($h_OpenFS) Return $Return[0] endIf endFunc

      question about _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx
      good morning
      welcome autoit team
      please i need your help
      i've searched a lot about how to use the _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx
      finally i found an example
      but i found some problem i hope you can help me
      firstly, i want to set the controls focussable with the keyboard input
      i already used the ws_tabStop but it did not work with me.
      secondly, i want to set some access keys linked with the window
      such as control+o enable the open button and control+f4 exit the app
      note: i need a local access keys and not a global hotkeys
      such as GUISetAccelerators
      finaly, before i will put the code here i must clarify a few things.
      1. you will ask me why you don't use the GUICreate function
      here i'll tell you that it as dialog and It is a little heavy in motion with screen readers.
      the screen readers for blind has some function that work with dialogs and others work with full windows style
      2. you will ask me why you didn't search the net for that?
      i will tell you that all examples that i found in the internet with pdfs and Picture books.
      i found some examples in microsoft but it with cpp.
      ok here is the code
      i hope you can help me to do what i want
      thank you in advance

      Hi Guys,
      I've noticed that the SoundGetWaveVolume UDF in an older topic isn't working on Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. It's probably a Windows XP UDF. The UDF below does work. It successfully returns the volume set by SoundSetWaveVolume. It might need checking by the AutoIt community for some synthax finetuning.
