[SOLVED] ListView flicker with Modern GUI UDF

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi guys,

So I am facing an issue with my Listview control flickering like crazy when using the Modern GUI UDF.

I understand that the reson is because Listviews do not play nice with the $WS_EX_COMPOSITED extended style which is necessary to prevent the rest of the GUI components flickering on resizing.

I am looking for suggestions on how I can overcome the flickering issue without having to remove the Listview header (as I need the header to allow column resizing and sorting).

The reproducer is here and the lightly modified Modern GUI UDF is attached as a zip (I added $WS_CLIPCHILDREN and $WS_EX_COMPOSITED to the _Metro_CreateGUI() function in order to stop flickering of other controls like buttons/labels/toggles etc).

;!Highly recommended for improved overall performance and responsiveness of the GUI effects etc.! (after compiling):
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y
#Au3Stripper_Parameters=/so /rm /pe

;Required if you want High DPI scaling enabled. (Also requries _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling())
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=y
#include-once
#NoTrayIcon
#include "MetroGUI-UDF\MetroGUI_UDF.au3"
#include <GuiListView.au3>


$gui = _Metro_CreateGUI("example", 800, 600, -1, -1, True)
;Add/create control buttons to the GUI
$Control_Buttons = _Metro_AddControlButtons(True, True, True, True, False) ;CloseBtn = True, MaximizeBtn = True, MinimizeBtn = True, FullscreenBtn = True, MenuBtn = True

;Set variables for the handles of the GUI-Control buttons. (Above function always returns an array this size and in this order, no matter which buttons are selected.
$GUI_CLOSE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[0]
$GUI_MAXIMIZE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[1]
$GUI_RESTORE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[2]
$GUI_MINIMIZE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[3]
$GUI_FULLSCREEN_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[4]
$GUI_FSRestore_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[5]
;======================================================================================================================================================================

$Button1 = _Metro_CreateButtonEx("Add new item(s)", 20, 20, 130, 50)
$Button2 = _Metro_CreateButtonEx("Edit item(s)", 170, 20, 130, 50)


$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 0, 86, 800, 400, BitOR($LVS_REPORT, $LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($ListView2, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES, $LVS_EX_SUBITEMIMAGES, $LVS_EX_FLATSB))

For $i = 0 to 8
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($ListView2, "col " &$i)
Next
_GUICtrlListView_SetBkColor($ListView2, 0xF3F3F3)
_GUICtrlListView_SetTextBkColor($ListView2, 0xF3F3F3)

;Set resizing options for the controls so they don't change in size or position. This can be customized to match your gui perfectly for resizing. See AutoIt Help file.
GUICtrlSetResizing($Button1, 768 + 2 + 32)
GUICtrlSetResizing($Button2, 768 + 2 + 32)
GUICtrlSetResizing($ListView2, 102)


GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    _Metro_HoverCheck_Loop($gui) ;This hover check has to be added to the main While loop, otherwise the hover effects won't work.
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        ;=========================================Control-Buttons===========================================
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $GUI_CLOSE_BUTTON
            _Metro_GUIDelete($gui) ;Delete GUI/release resources, make sure you use this when working with multiple GUIs!
            Exit
        Case $GUI_MAXIMIZE_BUTTON
            GUISetState(@SW_MAXIMIZE)
        Case $GUI_RESTORE_BUTTON
            GUISetState(@SW_RESTORE)
        Case $GUI_MINIMIZE_BUTTON
            GUISetState(@SW_MINIMIZE)
        Case $GUI_FULLSCREEN_BUTTON, $GUI_FSRestore_BUTTON
            _Metro_FullscreenToggle($gui, $Control_Buttons)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Any suggestions would be greately appreciated.

Cheers!

      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.

      I was not lucky to find the right function so I created it by my self:
      _GUICtrlListView_GetColumnID_ByName()
      Example:
       
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListView.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() Func Example() GUICreate("ListView Get Column ID", 400, 300) Local $idListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("Alfa|Beta|Gama", 2, 2, 394, 268) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnOrder($idListview, "2|0|1") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Information", "Column ID: " & _GUICtrlListView_GetColumnID_ByName($idListview, 'Gama')) ; Loop until the user exits. Do Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete() EndFunc ;==>Example Func _GUICtrlListView_GetColumnID_ByName($hListView, $sColumnToFind) Local $iColumn_Count = _GUICtrlListView_GetColumnCount($hListView) Local $aColumns For $iColumn_idx = 0 To $iColumn_Count - 1 $aColumns = _GUICtrlListView_GetColumn($hListView, $iColumn_idx) If $aColumns[5] = $sColumnToFind Then Return $iColumn_idx EndIf Next Return SetError(1, 0, -1) EndFunc ;==>_GUICtrlListView_GetColumnID_ByName
