Winmove GUI moves buttons

5 posts in this topic

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 ;)

      Hello,
       
      I have a script which uses a GUI with two buttons. It gets shown and hidden., and pressing the buttons (including their hotkeys) highlights the button, making you able to press enter the next time.
      However, I don't want that.
       
      I've tried using WinActivate() to make enter do things on another program, but the enter is still tied to the AutoIT GUI (which still has the button highlighted).
       
      Here's the important part of my code:
      $MY_GUI = GUICreate("Check.exe", 400, 300, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 200), -500) WinSetOnTop($MY_GUI, "", 1) ;Keeps the window on the top. $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pass (Ctrl+P)", 40, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fail (Ctrl+F)", 240, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $GUIText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 10, 360, 230) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 13, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUICtrlSetData($GUIText, Execute($stepMessage[$step])) $showGUI = "True" GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While($showGUI = "True") $buttonPressed = GUIGetMsg() Switch $buttonPressed Case $Button1 ;Pass $pass = "True" $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) Case $Button2 ;Fail $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) While($message = "") $message = InputBox("Check.exe", "Please enter the reason the step failed." & @CRLF, "", "", 300, 200, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 150), -400) WEnd Return $message EndSwitch WEnd Local $pass = "False" ;Whether "Pass" or "Fail" was pressed. Local $failLog = xxxfunc($pass) ;Returns a message to log if the step failed. ##THIS CALLS THE CODE SNIPPET ABOVE## FileWrite($file, _Now() & ": Step " & $step & getStatus($pass) & "and took " & Ceiling(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000) & " seconds." & @CRLF) If($failLog <> "") Then FileWrite($file, "Logged comment: " & $failLog & @CRLF) EndIf WinActivate("[TITLE:ProgramName]") ;Hotkeys: HotKeySet("^{p}", "pressPass") HotKeySet("^{f}", "pressFail") Func pressPass() $buttonPressed = $Button1 EndFunc Func pressFail() $buttonPressed = $Button2 EndFunc  
      The GUI's button/hotkey pressing works correctly.
      The same WinActivate code works in another script of mine.
      Together, WinActivate is not take "Active" away from the GUI's last-pressed button. How do I fix this?
       
      Thank you in advance.

      Dear AutoIT Community.
      I am currently working on a program that will display lots of images in a scroll down GUI.
      I create the GUI based on the number of images, which works fine.
      But all images I place using GuiCtrlCreatePic above a threshold of around 32000 pixels (cant say exactly) are placed at negative locations and finally will reach 0 again
      and will then populate on top of the images placed there before.
      For $i = 1 To $Images[0] ; Get picture dimensions $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ImgRep & $Images[$i]) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) ; Resize & place images in GUI $Pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic($ImgRep & $Images[$i], $Spacer, Round($yPos, 0), $MaxImgWidth, $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX)) $yPos = $yPos + $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX) + $Spacer $log = $log & "|" & $yPos $currentlut = $Images[1] Next I have found a limit at 32767 pixels for some GUI elements when googling around.
      Can someone tell me how to circumvent that?
      thanks!
      cheers

      Hello
       
      Is there anyway to store word documents in Autoit GUI? For example I have a instruction sheet that I want to bundle up with the exe.

      So a user simply clicks the icon and the stored document will launch  (Something like how you can add objects like excel sheets in word documents )

      (I Know we can launch word files from script directory)

      Not sure if this is possible or if someone has already tackled this. Is it possible to embed PowerShell into a GUI? Autoit is great for quick function but sometime I need to run a command thru PowerShell. It be great to have PowerShell console embedded into the gui.
