[MINOR AutoIT BUG?] ProgressON function doesn't support x,y parameters

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I was trying to use the ProgressOn function in a script.

according to the help, syntax is as follows:

ProgressOn ( "title", "maintext" [, "subtext" [, x pos [, y pos [, opt]]]] )

However when I supply an X pos and Y pos, the progress window appears centered anyway.

 

example:

progresson("test","test","test",200,20)

sleep(5000)

OS is Windows 10

I don't get the same results, mine is positioned at 200, 20 when I run that snippet. Windows 10 x64 Enterprise.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

@boomingranny the following works just fine for me on Windows 10:

ProgressOn("Progress Meter", "Increments every second", "0%", 500, 200)
    For $i = 10 To 100 Step 10
        Sleep(1000)
        ProgressSet($i, $i & "%")
    Next

ProgressSet(100, "Done", "Complete")

Sleep(5000)

ProgressOff()

What version of AutoIt are you running?

Thanks for the reply guys,

I was using Autoit 3.3.8
I just upgraded to latest (3.3.14.2) but I am experiencing the same issue.

Running Windows 10 Pro 64bit,

Also running 2 monitors, at 1920x1080

Here is a screenshot, as you can see it is popping up in the centre instead of where i expected (200x,20y)

For now I am simply working around the issue by manually moving the progress window by title after creating it, but I wanted to understand the behavior in case there is an underlying bug that can effect anything else...

Out of curiosity, why are you doing a simple sleep rather than incrementing your progress as shown in the Example script? The progress will never update the way you have it written.

This is just an example script I created to show the issue I am experiencing (progress window always appearing in the centre of my main monitor instead of at the x,y coordinates specified)
My actual script is alot different and contains alot of irelevant code ;)
Cheers

My point was, do you see a difference in behavior if you code it the way it is in the example script I have in post #3? Does the window then move for you?
