Vertical Tab problem

9 posts in this topic

I'm sure I had this working before using one of the other betas but now I can't seem to get the tab to display the 'Tab1' text vertically as it says it should according to the Help File tab style '$TCS_VERTICAL'.

Can anyone see what I've done wrong.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)
opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1)
Dim $MainGUI
Dim $Title = "My GUI"
MainGUI()
Do
    Sleep(250)
Until 0
Func MainGUI()
    $MainGUI = GUICreate($Title, 190, 160, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU))
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "OnExit")
    GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 5, 170, 120, BitOR($TCS_MULTILINE, $TCS_VERTICAL), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab1")
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
EndFunc
Func OnExit()
    If @GUI_WinHandle = $MainGUI Then Exit
EndFunc

Thanks

the young have "brain farts"

the middle aged have "intelectual interludes"

the older have "senior moments"

so, you know its over when

you have an intlectual interlude in the middle of a senior moment and in comes a brain fart

hate to say this works for me, tried on left side and right side

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)
opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1)
Dim $MainGUI
Dim $Title = "My GUI"
MainGUI()
Do
    Sleep(250)
Until 0
Func MainGUI()
    $MainGUI = GUICreate($Title, 190, 160, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU))
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "OnExit")
    GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 5, 170, 120, BitOR($TCS_MULTILINE, $TCS_VERTICAL, $TCS_RIGHT), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab1")
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
EndFunc
Func OnExit()
    If @GUI_WinHandle = $MainGUI Then Exit
EndFunc

Yes, I can confirm Valuaters results - works for me in Windows Classic theme as well but fails in Windows XP theme.

try this

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)
opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1)
Dim $MainGUI
Dim $Title = "My GUI"
DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "none", "SetThemeAppProperties", "int", 0)
MainGUI()
Do
    Sleep(250)
Until 0
Func MainGUI()
    $MainGUI = GUICreate($Title, 190, 160, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU))
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "OnExit")
    GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 5, 170, 120, BitOR($TCS_MULTILINE, $TCS_VERTICAL, $TCS_RIGHT), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab1")
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
EndFunc
Func OnExit()
    If @GUI_WinHandle = $MainGUI Then Exit
EndFunc

Yep, works and is a good temporary workaround for all problems relating to themes. Thanks gafrost.
