Fit control to dialog

5 posts in this topic

Hi

Let's say I have a dialog with menu and tabs at top, and status bar at bottom, and I want to insert a list view in between. Can I make the list view to automatically resize itself to fill in unused portion of the dialog? I did not find any other way except calculating the size myself.

DF,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

Take a look at GUICtrlSetResizing in the Help file - it is all automatic if you set the correct values.

Thanks, Melba23

This seems to resize control when I resize dialog, but I still cannot make control to initially fill dialog. I guess that must be done by trial and error.

DF,

Of course not - you just need to calculate it:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

; Create menu and status bar
$mMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("File")
$mExit = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Exit", $mMenu)
$hStatus = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($hGUI)

; Create tab control
$cTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 480, 200)
$cTab0 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab 0")
$cTab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab 1")
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

; Get internal GUI size
$aClient = WinGetClientSize($hGUI)
; Get status bar height
$iStatus_Ht = _GUICtrlStatusBar_GetHeight($hStatus)
; Calculate remaining height
$iLabel_Height = $aClient[1] - 10         - 200        - 10               - 10            - $iStatus_Ht
;                Internal Ht   top margin   tab height   margin tab/label   bottom margin   status bar

$cLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 220, 480, $iLabel_Height)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($cLabel, 0xFF0000)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Please ask if you have any questions.

Understood, I will use something similar to this and dock everything in place. I was hoping there would be one-liner or style flag etc. to do all of this. Thank you for quick response :-)
