Transparent Input GUI

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I want to Drag&Drop files on a ListView GUI. Because that is - to my greatly big regret - not posible, I want to solve it with a Transparent GUI Inputbox, which accept files. Attached the (basic) code for the Transparent Input box.

Is that the right way or there are better solutions?

Thanks, Reinhard

PS: The transparency I set to 100 (only for this demo) B)

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("MyGUI", 320,120, @DesktopWidth/2-160, @DesktopHeight/2-45, -1, 0x00000018)

$file = GUICtrlCreateInput ( "", 10,  5, 300, 40)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_ACCEPTFILES)
WinSetTrans ( "MyGUI", "", 100)

GUISetState () 

$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
       $msg = GUIGetMsg()

It could work, you would just have to keep it docked over the listview, so any time the main gui moves or is resized you would have to do the same to the dragdrop gui

problem, the transparent gui would be in the way of directly working with the listview.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$my_Gui = GUICreate("MyGUI", 320,120, @DesktopWidth/2-160, @DesktopHeight/2-45, -1, 0x00000018)

$file = GUICtrlCreateInput ( "", 10,  5, 300, 40)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_ACCEPTFILES)
WinSetTrans ( $my_Gui, "", 2)

GUISetState () 

$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
 $msg = GUIGetMsg()
 If StringLen(GUICtrlRead($file)) Then
  ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlRead($file) & @LF)
; do something
  GUICtrlSetData($file,"")
 EndIf

Thanks Gary,

I think far more then the half of my 700 basic codelines for my PDF Manger are direct or indirect from you.

"It could work, you would just have to keep it docked over the listview, so any time the main gui moves or is resized you would have to do the same to the dragdrop gui"

For luck, I'm far away from to be able to set up a resizeable GUI. I think I can put it over the listview, when the listview is in the foreground and PDF Manager lose the focus (Win-not-active).

"problem, the transparent gui would be in the way of directly working with the listview."

As soon as the PDF Manager get back focus, the input box will be disabled. At time I work with a input box direct under the treeview (Drag&Drop files here) and I considered in the GUI While loop already to get Draged&Droped files without further action. So I think I can change it slowly.

However, I will test it and report back, but I need some time for it.

Best regards, Reinhard
