How to vertically center text in label control

Recommended Posts

thoms

Hello Forum,

I'm trying to vertically center text in label controls, but no way. The search on the forum returns no result, or I don't search the right way :>

When I insert a button and a label of same size close to each other, the text is centered on the button, but top aligned on the label, or edit. Which doesn't look really aesthetic :no:

Any idea is welcome

Thanks in advance,

Thoms

Here is one idea to center text vertically and horizontally in a label and edit control.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <String.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("My GUI", 200, 400)

    Local $iCtrlDepth = 200, $iFontSize = 9
    $iCenter = Int($iCtrlDepth / ($iFontSize * 4))
    GUICtrlCreateLabel(_StringRepeat(@CRLF, $iCenter) & "Label", 10, 30, 100, $iCtrlDepth, $SS_CENTER) 
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xA0FFFF)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, $iFontSize)

    $iCtrlDepth1 = 150
    $iFontSize = 12
    $iCenter = Int($iCtrlDepth1 / ($iFontSize * 4))
    GUICtrlCreateEdit(_StringRepeat(@CRLF, $iCenter) & "Edit", 10, 40 + $iCtrlDepth, 100, $iCtrlDepth1, $ES_CENTER)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, $iFontSize)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFA0)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Hi Malkey,

Thanks for your quick answer. This works pretty well for large label height/font size ratio, but my label height is 52 and font size is 12.

This results in approx. bottom aligned text.

I've found another way (for lazy): I put an empty 52 height label, then a 26 height label with text 12 on top of it. Both with same color.

I expected an easier way to do it.

BTW, I don't understand $BS_VCENTER for buttons as they are vertically centered by default. This would be more helpful for labels/edits in my case.

Thx,

Thoms

      I want to copy just the selected text in an input control and put it to the clipboard, but GuiCtrlRead() always reads all of the text in the control.
      In this test code, when I highlight a  portion of the left control's text and press ^C, I want to copy just that text to the clipboard; but when I highlight a  portion of the right control's text and press ^C, I want to copy all of its text to the clipboard.

      I'm trying to add a bit of functionality to the FastStone File Rename dialog. I can access every control that I need to except the one that contains the files to be renamed. If I do some exploring in a vbScript shell I get
      :c  = "TTntTreeView.UnicodeClass1"
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"GetItemCount","","")
      5
      You can see that the treeview control reports having five items, which is the number displayed. If I manually select (mouse) item #3 I can see the result by
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"GetSelected","1","")
      #3
      But I do not know how to get the text for the selected item. If "#3" is the item reference then I should be able to
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"GetText","1","#3")
      or
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"GetText","1","#3")
      if I go strictly by the help file, but it returns nothing.
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"Exists","","3")
      1
      So it appears that item 3 exists, but
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"GetText","","3")
      does not have any text???
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"Exists","","9")
      1
      and it also appears item 9 exists (it does not)
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"Select","","")
      1
      causes the first item to be selected, as does
      :?aut.ControlTreeView(win,"",c,"Select","","3")
      1

      I am trying to identify the window based on the window title and text.
      The title will be the "erwin DM - filename"

      It is working till date, but some operating systems our application is displaying window as "erwin DM - [filename]"
       
      I tried  "erwin DM - *filename*" But this regular expression is not working.
      Any suggestion?
       
      $sModelFile = "C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\My Models\eMovies.erwin" $wdModel = _WinWaitActivate1("erwin DM - "&FileNameOnly($sModelFile),"") Func _WinWaitActivate1($title,$text,$timeout=0);Will Return the window Handler Logging("Waiting for "&$title&":"&$text) $dHandle = WinWait($title,$text,$timeout) if not ($dHandle = 0) then If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text) return WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout) Else Logging("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...") Exit EndIf EndFunc Func FileNameOnly($sFilePath) Local $sDrive = "", $sDir = "", $sFileName = "", $sExtension = "" Local $aPathSplit = _PathSplit($sFilePath, $sDrive, $sDir, $sFileName, $sExtension) ;_ArrayDisplay($aPathSplit, "_PathSplit of " & @ScriptFullPath) return $sFileName EndFunc
