Winmove GUI moves buttons

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Below is a code whish i made for this problem i've. (code 1)
The problem is that iff i try Winmove to to show the hidden button it's not working as i tought.
What i try to do is just simple expand the GUI to make the hidden button visible. (code 2)
I've already looked into GUICoordMode but don't think that's the problem.(or I don't understand it properly)
Also tried to look into the forum but din't find anything around this subject but could't find anything around this subject.

Does somebody knows what I'm doing wrong?
 

Code 1 (winmove prblem) :

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 134, 103, 192, 124)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 8, 8, 75, 25)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("2", 8, 40, 75, 25)
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("3", 8, 72, 75, 25)
$expand_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("EXP", 96, 40, 27, 25)
$hidden_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hidden", 160, 40, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
         Case $expand_button
            WinMove($Form1, "From1", 192, 124, 300, 103)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

 

Code 2 What I'm trying to expand to :

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 265, 114, 192, 124)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 8, 8, 75, 25)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("2", 8, 40, 75, 25)
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("3", 8, 72, 75, 25)
$expand_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("EXP", 96, 40, 27, 25)
$hidden_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hidden", 160, 40, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Your code will work using the correct resizing mode and valid window-sizes:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKALL) ;0=no resizing, <1024 special resizing

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 134, 103, 192, 124)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 8, 8, 75, 25)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("2", 8, 40, 75, 25)
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("3", 8, 72, 75, 25)
$expand_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("EXP", 96, 40, 27, 25)
$hidden_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hidden", 160, 40, 75, 25)
;GUICtrlSetState($hidden_button,BitOR($GUI_HIDE,$GUI_DISABLE ))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $expand_button
            $aWin=WinGetPos($Form1)
            WinMove($Form1, "", $aWin[0], $aWin[1], 265, $aWin[3])
            ;GUICtrlSetState($hidden_button,BitOR($GUI_SHOW,$GUI_ENABLE ))
        Case $hidden_button
            $aWin=WinGetPos($Form1)
            WinMove($Form1, "", $aWin[0], $aWin[1], 134, $aWin[3])
            ;GUICtrlSetState($hidden_button,BitOR($GUI_HIDE,$GUI_DISABLE ))
            MsgBox(64,'Test','Hidden Button clicked')
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Test above script:

  1. use the tab to tab to hidden button, yes button work also when he isn't visible
  2. test the expand button. if isn't espected result post again

Remove the semicolons in lines: 12, 23 and 27 and test again.

YESSS totaly what I was looking for.
Thanks @AutoBert for the good explanation.
also credits to @water , Ive looked into it and think the solution Autobert proposed is little bit simpler to have the same.

I'm sure AutoBert's solution perfectly fits your needs whereas Melba's UDF is more of a swiss army knife and does much more ;)

      Hi all,
      I am creating a GUI library in Nim with win32 API functions. Even though the syntax is similar to Python, coding is almost similar to C in Nim. 
      I can change the back color of the button in NM_CUSTOMDRAW. But I can't change the button text color. here is my pseudo code.  
      proc setBtnBackColor*(me : Button, lp: LPNMCUSTOMDRAW ) = if lp.uItemState and CDIS_SELECTED : #------------------ btn clicked # Here i am changing the button color with SelectObject & FillRect. elif lp.uItemState and CDIS_HOT : # ----------------Mouse over # Here i am changing the button's mouse hover color with SelectObject & FillRect. else: # -------------------------Default color set # Here i am changing the button's default color with SelectObject & FillRect. # Here i tried---> SetTextColor(lp.hdc, RGB(102, 255, 51) ) #------- But no luck. #------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please guide me. What i am doing wrong here ?  I am returning "CDRF_SKIPDEFAULT" after calling this function.
      Note : I am using subclassed button. So when the parent window receives WM_NOTIFY message, it sends that to my button's WndProc. There i am handling the message.

      I use SetSoundDevice to control my audio devices but the UI was either
       
      blurry like this:
      or unusable like this:

      so I made this horrible thing to add scaling to the GUI:
      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=y #AutoIt3Wrapper_AU3Check_Parameters=-w 3 -w 4 -w 5 #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y #Au3Stripper_Parameters=/sf /sv /rm #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #include <File.au3> ;~ _convertGUI("") If $CmdLine[0] <> 0 Then _convertGUI($CmdLine[1]) Func _convertGUI($sFilePath) If $sFilePath <> "" Then Local $aArray = FileReadToArray($sFilePath) Else ;TEST DATA Local $aArray[6] = ['$H_Res_Language = GUICtrlCreateProgress(5, 120, 210 + 25, 480, 20, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE)) ; $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)', _ 'Local $h_Ok = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 72, 224, 81, 33, 0)', _ 'GUICreate($Warning_TiTle, 700, 310, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_SYSMENU + $WS_MINIMIZEBOX)', _ 'GUICtrlCreateLabel("Output type: ", 30, 130, 65, 20) ;, $SS_RIGHT)', _ '$H_FieldNameEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($INP_FieldNameEdit, 100,260+25, 500, 150 - 25) ;comment', 'Local $H_CANCEL = GUICtrlCreateGraphic("Cancel", 224, 224, 97, 33, 0)'] EndIf Local $hTimer = TimerInit(), $iGUIElementCount = 0, $sResult = "", $sFileName = "", $sDrive = "", $sDir = "", $sExtension = "" If @Compiled Then _PathSplit($sFilePath, $sDrive, $sDir, $sFileName, $sExtension) $sFileName = StringRegExpReplace($sFilePath, "^.*\\", "") EndIf For $i = 0 To (UBound($aArray) - 1) If StringRegExp($aArray[$i], "GUICtrlCreate|GUICreate") Then $sResult = _splitComma($aArray[$i]) If Not @error Then $aArray[$i] = $sResult $iGUIElementCount += 1 EndIf Next ConsoleWrite("t = " & TimerDiff($hTimer) & " GUI elements = " & $iGUIElementCount & " lines = " & (UBound($aArray) - 1) & @CRLF) If $sFileName <> "" Then Local $hFile = FileOpen("edited." & $sFileName, 2) _FileWriteFromArray("edited." & $sFileName, $aArray) FileClose($hFile) EndIf Exit EndFunc ;==>_convertGUI Func _splitComma($sString) Local $sSplitResult = "", $sTrimmedR = "", $sTrimmedL = "" Local $aSplit = StringSplit($sString, ',') If Not @error Then $sTrimmedR = "" $sTrimmedL = "" For $j = 1 To $aSplit[0] If StringRegExp($aSplit[1], "(?:.GUICtrlCreateGraphic|GUICtrlCreateProgress|GUICtrlCreateSlider|GUICtrlCreateTab|GUICtrlCreateTreeView)") Then If $j = 1 Then While StringLeft($aSplit[$j], 1) <> '(' $sTrimmedL &= StringLeft($aSplit[$j], 1) $aSplit[$j] = StringTrimLeft($aSplit[$j], 1) WEnd $aSplit[$j] = StringTrimLeft($aSplit[$j], 1) EndIf EndIf If $j = $aSplit[0] Then While StringRight($aSplit[$j], 1) <> ')' $sTrimmedR &= StringRight($aSplit[$j], 1) $aSplit[$j] = StringTrimRight($aSplit[$j], 1) WEnd $aSplit[$j] = StringTrimRight($aSplit[$j], 1) EndIf If StringRegExp($aSplit[$j], "[0-9]") And $aSplit[$j] <> -1 And $aSplit[$j] <> 0 And $aSplit[$j] <> 1 And Not StringInStr($aSplit[$j], ')') Then If StringRegExp($aSplit[$j], "\-|\+") Then ;put parenthesis around + or - $aSplit[$j] = '(' & $aSplit[$j] & ")*$g_DPI" Else $aSplit[$j] = $aSplit[$j] & "*$g_DPI" EndIf EndIf If $j < $aSplit[0] Then $sSplitResult &= $aSplit[$j] & ',' ElseIf $j = $aSplit[0] Then $sSplitResult &= $aSplit[$j] & ')' Else $sSplitResult &= $aSplit[$j] EndIf Next If $sTrimmedR <> "" Then $sSplitResult &= StringReverse($sTrimmedR) If $sTrimmedL <> "" Then $sSplitResult = $sTrimmedL & '(' & $sSplitResult Else SetError(1) Return EndIf ConsoleWrite($sSplitResult & @CRLF) Return $sSplitResult EndFunc ;==>_splitComma
      And now it looks good: 
      but it doesn't work on everything, for example the "GUICtrlCreateLabel("Output type: ", 30, 130, 65, 20) ;, $SS_RIGHT)" (from the autoit3wrapper gui)
      because the comment contains a parenthesis and it would break completely if there were variables as parameters..
      Is there some kind of parser around that I could use instead or maybe someone who has already done something like this?

      Hey Guys,
      I want to add a new checkbox with its own variable every time the add button is clicked.
      The added checkboxes should remain when I close the window or exit the script and when I reopen I should be able to add new checkboxes aswell.
      here is what I have so far..
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <GuiButton.au3> $test = GUICreate("adding test", 475, 345, 500, 175) $Check1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 1", 15, 25, 300, 25) $Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add", 365, 25, 90, 20) $Check2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 2", 15, 50, 300, 25) $Check3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 3", 15, 75, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check2, $GUI_HIDE) GUICtrlSetState($Check3, $GUI_HIDE) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ; Exit Case $Button GUICtrlSetPos($Check2, 15, 50, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check2, $GUI_SHOW) Case $Button GUICtrlSetPos($Check3, 15, 75, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check3, $GUI_SHOW) EndSwitch WEnd

      Hello Everyone,
      Hoping someone can help me,
      I am totally stuck on this problem,

      I cannot reach the textarea and the button in a maps page that I get by clicking on a button in a previus page, the only way I can interact with this is using tab and mouseclick but this is a danger method as  you know.

      I get the handle by using: $Posizione = _IEAttach("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa")

      then I tried a lot of things but nothing works, can someone give me a hint?
      --------------------
      WinWait("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa")
      sleep(1000)
      $Posizione = _IEAttach("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa")
      WinSetState ("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE  )
      WinActivate("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa")
      sleep(500)
      ;~ $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($Posizione, "form1");Punta il Form
      $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($Posizione,"indirizzo")
      $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($Posizione,"writeAddress")

      ;~ $LenteTestoMess = _IEFormElementGetValue($oText);Inserisce il PrimoRepertorio nella variabile
      ;~ _IELinkClickByText($Posizione, $oForm);Clicca su Aggiorna ed invia il form
      _IEFormElementSetValue ($oText,"via Ravenna 12" );Completamento campo testo

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie
