GUI Menu or Tray Menu with icons. There's a simple way?

Recommended Posts

Hi, i searched some topics but cannot found a simple way to do that:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

; I tried this but user reported that it work in 2006, not seems work actually
$filemenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("&File")
$fileitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Open",$filemenu)
GuiCtrlSetImage($fileitem, "shell32.dll", 4)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Also tried:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


$filemenu = TrayCreateMenu("&File")
$fileitem = TrayCreateItem("Open",$filemenu)
;GuiCtrlSetImage($fileitem, "shell32.dll", 4)
;GuiCtrlSetImage(TrayItemGetHandle($fileitem), "shell32.dll", 4)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Well.. thanks in advance!

 

Ok. I found this working example from Yashied. If i cannot find a simple then i will go with it

#Include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <GUIMenu.au3>
#Include <Constants.au3>
#Include <WinAPI.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Global $hMenu, $hForm, $hFile = 1000, $idNew, $idExit

$hForm = GUICreate('Menu', 400, 300)

$hFile = _GUICtrlMenu_CreateMenu()
_GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem ($hFile, 0, ' &Favorites', $idNew)
_GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem ($hFile, 1, '', 0)
_GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem($hFile, 2, ' E&xit', $idExit)
$hMenu = _GUICtrlMenu_CreateMenu()
_GUICtrlMenu_InsertMenuItem($hMenu, 0, '&File', 0, $hFile)
_GUICtrlMenu_SetMenu($hForm, $hMenu)
_GUICtrlMenu_SetItemBmp($hFile, 0, _CreateBitmapFromIcon(_WinAPI_GetSysColor($COLOR_MENU), @SystemDir & '\shell32.dll', 43, 16, 16))
_GUICtrlMenu_SetItemBmp($hFile, 2, _CreateBitmapFromIcon(_WinAPI_GetSysColor($COLOR_MENU), @SystemDir & '\shell32.dll', 27, 16, 16))

GUISetState()

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Func _CreateBitmapFromIcon($iBackground, $sIcon, $iIndex, $iWidth, $iHeight)

    Local $hDC, $hBackDC, $hBackSv, $hIcon, $hBitmap
    
    $hDC = _WinAPI_GetDC(0)
    $hBackDC = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleDC($hDC)
    $hBitmap = _WinAPI_CreateSolidBitmap(0, $iBackground, $iWidth, $iHeight)
    $hBackSv = _WinAPI_SelectObject($hBackDC, $hBitmap)
    $hIcon = _WinAPI_PrivateExtractIcon($sIcon, $iIndex, $iWidth, $iHeight)
    If Not @error Then
        _WinAPI_DrawIconEx($hBackDC, 0, 0, $hIcon, 0, 0, 0, 0, $DI_NORMAL)
        _WinAPI_DestroyIcon($hIcon)
    EndIf
    _WinAPI_SelectObject($hBackDC, $hBackSv)
    _WinAPI_ReleaseDC(0, $hDC)
    _WinAPI_DeleteDC($hBackDC)
    Return $hBitmap
EndFunc   ;==>_CreateBitmapFromIcon

Func _WinAPI_PrivateExtractIcon($sIcon, $iIndex, $iWidth, $iHeight)

    Local $hIcon, $tIcon = DllStructCreate('hwnd'), $tID = DllStructCreate('hwnd')
    Local $Ret = DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'PrivateExtractIcons', 'str', $sIcon, 'int', $iIndex, 'int', $iWidth, 'int', $iHeight, 'ptr', DllStructGetPtr($tIcon), 'ptr', DllStructGetPtr($tID), 'int', 1, 'int', 0)

    If (@error) Or ($Ret[0] = 0) Then
        Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    EndIf
    $hIcon = DllStructGetData($tIcon, 1)
    If ($hIcon = Ptr(0)) Or (Not IsPtr($hIcon)) Then
        Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    EndIf
    Return $hIcon
EndFunc   ;==>_WinAPI_PrivateExtractIcon

Ok, i noticed that is a pain create submenu with _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup to do like in Tray, and Tray better located, then i need images/icon with Tray functions, some workaround?? :'(

      Hello everyone,
      Im developing an script to check the size of all .jpg stored in windows folder.
      The problem is that it doesn´t work properly with rotated images. 
      With _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth() and _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight()  I get the Width and Height of images as if they had not been rotated, and I need to know how they are rotated (orientation and grades).
      Any help is welcome! If more info is needed, please tell. 😁

      hello autoit team
      please i've a question for you.
      am creating a audio player
      and in this audio player i want to show the current trac info
      such as the total time and the position ... etc
      i know i can show it as label
      but the screen reader for the blind read the text every change
      because it have a screen scan
      what i want is to show this informations but such image or icon
      i mean i need to create
      GUICtrlCreatepic or GUICtrlCreateicon ....
      or some thing as that
      and show this informations as image on it
      i think that i can do that with the 
      _GDIPlus functions
      but i couldn't find the currect way to do it
      i tried the _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawString
      but i couldn't know how it work
      what i need is a small example that create a GUI
      and add a multy line text to it as graphic or image.
      so i need a simple way because it will changed every sec
      i hope any one can help me to do that
      global $GUI = GUICreate("text", 400, 400) global $label = GUICtrlCreateLabel(GetText(), 10, 10, 380, 380) GUISetState() do sleep(100) until GUIGetMSG() = -3 exit func GetText() return StringFormat("file name is test.mp3 \r\n total time is 00:30:00 \r\n position is 00:05:50") endFunc

      So I don't have any code cooked up yet as this is still in the theoretical stage. Just looking for some advice.
      My current idea is to resize the image to 1x1 pixel, probably using _GDIPlus_ImageResize, and read the color of the resulting pixel to obtain an admittedly very general sense of brightness. Does anyone think this could work?
      We have a CCTV system running at home using some home made cameras (raspberry pi) and we're trying to automate toggling settings for day/night time. We started with an AutoIt script that checked sunrise and sundown times for our location (calculations pulled from here) and toggled the settings based on that. Unfortunately our weather varies wildly, so it can get light/dark far outside normal sunrise/sundown times. Now we're hoping to periodically grab a still from the camera and toggle the light mode based on that.

      I have several context menus that's been built using _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup() and _GUICtrlMenu_AddMenuItem().
      When using _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup() it returns the identifier of the clicked item, sure. But it blocks the main loop while the menu is open.
      When using _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup($MNS_MODELESS) it returns immediately (of course), but I cannot figure out how/where to read the item that was clicked. Is there a Windows Message (WM) somewhere that is triggered? I've spend an entire day trying to figure out how to do this, but I'm not getting anywhere. My google fu is depleted (I must have tried like hundreds of script variations today), I'm about to smash my keyboard and just go to bed, and abandon the entire endeavor of making pretty menus and go back to using Koda and forget about using menu icons, colors,  etc.
      Anyone wanna help me out with how to read the clicked item? Before I smash my keyboard, please...
       
      Example script here:
       
      #include <GuiMenu.au3> #include <WinAPIError.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> GUIRegisterMsg($WM_CONTEXTMENU, "_WM_CONTEXTMENU") Global $idMenuItem = 10000, $counter = 0 Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Menu test", 400, 300) Global $hListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 2, 2, 396, 200) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;~ Global $hMenuContext = _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup() Global $hMenuContext = _GUICtrlMenu_CreatePopup($MNS_MODELESS) _GUICtrlMenu_AddMenuItem($hMenuContext, "Menu item", $idMenuItem) Global $hTimer = TimerInit() Do If TimerDiff($hTimer)>200 Then $counter += 1 ConsoleWrite($counter & " " ) $hTimer = TimerInit() EndIf Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Func _WM_CONTEXTMENU($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam) #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $lParam Switch $wParam Case GUICtrlGetHandle($hListview) ConsoleWrite( @CRLF & "_GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu = " & _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu($hMenuContext, $wParam, -1, -1, 1, 1, 2) & @CRLF) EndSwitch EndFunc
