_GDIPlus and Buttons gone after minimize restore

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

i have a code that creates buttons and graphics in the same block.  before the block is _GDIPlus_Startup()

$hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($mainGUI)

        $hBrush = _GDIPlus_BrushCreateSolid(0xF03FC744) ; Felish Green colour
        $hPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate(0xFFBFCC49); Granite colour
        $hPath = _GDIPlus_PathCreate() ;Create new path object
        $hFamily = _GDIPlus_FontFamilyCreate("Tahoma") ;Create font family object

        $tLayout = _GDIPlus_RectFCreate($startX, $startY, $bHeigh, $bWidth) ;Create string bounding rectangle X=0, Y=0
        $hFormat = _GDIPlus_StringFormatCreate(0x0400); Allow overhanging rectangle
        _GDIPlus_StringFormatSetAlign($hFormat, 1); Align text horizontally
        _GDIPlus_StringFormatSetLineAlign($hFormat, 1) ; Align text Vertically

        ; Add String like CtrlLabels assign to rectangle and formats including Font _
        _GDIPlus_PathAddString($hPath, FileReadLine($configF, $SN), $tLayout, $hFamily, 0, 26, $hFormat)

        _GDIPlus_GraphicsSetSmoothingMode($hGraphic, $GDIP_SMOOTHINGMODE_HIGHQUALITY) ;Sets the graphics object rendering quality (antialiasing)
        _GDIPlus_GraphicsFillPath($hGraphic, $hPath, $hBrush) ; Fill path to graphics handle (GUI)

end of the block

_GDIPlus_BrushDispose($hBrush)
    _GDIPlus_FontFamilyDispose($hFamily)
    _GDIPlus_StringFormatDispose($hFormat)
    _GDIPlus_PenDispose($hPen)
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic)
    _GDIPlus_Shutdown()

now this works on the first run but when i minimize and then restore _GDIPlus_ is gone and so are buttons. but if i create labels they stay.

i've tried moving "Dispose" functions at the end of the loop but still the same result

You have to redraw the GDI+ stuff when restoring the GUI.


Please don't send me any personal message and ask for support! I will not reply!

      Hello all! I have had some issues reading text from different types of windows, occasionally, specifically with controlgettext. 
      **Before I begin, I know there are better ways to do what I attempt in the example below. That's not the point of this post. The point is my issues with controlgettext. 
      I am about to cite an example with an application you may be familiar with called SpeedFan (v4.52). My problem is not specific to speedfan, it is simply the most recent and easily reproducible example I can think of. 
      So, the goal of the script below is to get a string of text containing the current fan RPMs from the highlighted control in the screenshot below (see "speedfan_control_details.png").

      Now, here's a simple script for grabbing the window handle and reading the text from that control: 
      $wintitle = "SpeedFan 4.52" $controlID = "197934" ;will be reformatted as "[ID:######]" $hwnd = wingethandle($wintitle) if @error<>0 then msgbox(0, "WinGetHandle", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) Exit EndIf $text = ControlGetText($hwnd, "", "[ID:"&$controlID&"]") if @error=1 then msgbox(0, "ControlGetText", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) ;failure returns "" and @error=1 Exit EndIf msgbox (0, "ControlGetText", "SUCCESS. @error="&@error &@CRLF& "$text="&$text) ;success returns string and @error=0 You'll see that the ControlGetText operation runs without error, however it does not capture any text from the control. If you explore the other controls in this one window, you'll find mixed results across the board. Neither the temps nor voltages can be read, while the log field and some other elements can be read. Even when you read the text from the whole window, those elements are not included in the visible nor hidden texts. 
       
      I have run into this issue many times in the past- inconsistencies in the ability of autoit to interact with certain controls. What is it which makes this text different than any other readable texts? Is there an alternate method of reading the text in the window/control which could work? Any and all info to help me solve this mystery and satisfy my curiosity would be greatly appreciated. 
      Thanks  -Rob C

      Hello Forum,
      I'm trying to vertically center text in label controls, but no way. The search on the forum returns no result, or I don't search the right way
      When I insert a button and a label of same size close to each other, the text is centered on the button, but top aligned on the label, or edit. Which doesn't look really aesthetic
      Any idea is welcome
      Thanks in advance,
      Thoms

      Two questions...
      When presenting a form containing a richedit control, is there any way to make the displayed text, within said richedit control, non-selectable?
      In addition, is there any way to hide the vertical line cursor, within said richedit control?
      Thanx.
