Winmove GUI moves buttons

Recommended Posts

FMS

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, everybody
      I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
      In other words:
          Any PC screen able to calculate the size
          To consider the Task bar size
          To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it

      Notes:
      In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
      Thanks a lot
      PS
      I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear

      Hello Everyone,
      New Guy here. This is a two-part question, hopefully easy enough though. I know it's ugly coding, this is because I have only a couple hours worth of coding experience and could really use some help.
      1) When I single click the button I want one action (like playing a sound clip) and when I double click the button I want a different action (such as opening dialogue box to ask for soundclip directory address). At the bottom of the script I made a comment which one I would like single click versus double click.
      2) I can not get the FileOpenDialogue to save the file address to the config.ini file at the 'One' position on the .ini.
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <Sound.au3> Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $OneID _Main() Func _Main() GUICreate("Form1", 156, 86, 281, 276) $OneID = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button", 15, 17, 122, 37) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($OneID, "OnOne") GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "OnExit") GUISetState() While 1 While 1 Sleep(1000) WEnd WEnd EndFunc ;---------------Functions------------- While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func OnOne() ; ******************Single Click for this action**************** $OneID = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", $OneID) If $OneID = True Then SoundPlay($OneID, @HotKeyPressed) Else ; *******Double Click for this action*****And Help Saving File Address to config.ini 'One'*********** $OneID = FileOpenDialog("Select file", @WorkingDir, "All (*.*)") IniWrite("config.ini", "Config", "One", $OneID) $OneID = InputBox("Enter Information", "Short Name for File?", "") IniWrite("config.ini", "Config", "NameOne", $OneID) EndIf EndFunc Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you need anymore clarity as to what exactly I'm trying to do, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks so much!

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.
      #Region options, includes Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #EndRegion options, includes Global Const $nCols = 2, $nRows = 6, $nSpacer = 10, $nBtnWidth = 150, $nBtnHeight = 30 Global $xName = 0, $xID = 0 Global $nGUIWidth = ($nCols * $nBtnWidth) + (($nCols + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $nGUIHeight = ($nRows * $nBtnHeight) + (($nRows + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $hMainGUI = GUICreate("Calculated GUI", $nGUIWidth, $nGUIHeight, -1, -1) For $xRows = 1 to $nRows ;in this arrangement, tabbing is left to right, then next row For $xCols = 1 to $nCols ;reverse the order of this line with the prior line for top to bottom tabbing, then next col $xName += 1 $xID += 1 Global $Dummy = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $xName, _ ($nBtnWidth * ($xCols - 1)) + (($xCols - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ ($nBtnHeight* ($xRows - 1)) + (($xRows - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ $nBtnWidth, _ $nBtnHeight) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($xID+2, "Handler") Next Next GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CloseApp") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func CloseApp() Exit EndFunc Func Handler() MsgBox(0,0,"Button " & @GUI_CtrlId - 2) EndFunc
