Always maintain the same Window Proportions

Recommended Posts

KfirAsulin

Hi,

I would like to create a simple rectangle gui (added a pic) so that it will maintain the same proportions (hight, width) including the controls, 

so it will look the same on every type of computer screen resolution.

Thanks

KfirAsulin,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

You can do it like this:

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

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_SYSMENU))
GUISetState()

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZING, "_WM_SIZING")

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _WM_SIZING($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

    #forceref $iMsg, $wParam, $wParam

    If $hWnd = $hGUI Then

        Local $iNew_H, $iNew_W
        ; Get current size
        Local $sRect = DllStructCreate("Int[4]", $lParam)
        ; Read values
        Local $iLeft = DllStructGetData($sRect, 1, 1)
        Local $iTop = DllStructGetData($sRect, 1, 2)
        Local $iRight = DllStructGetData($sRect, 1, 3)
        Local $iBottom = DllStructGetData($sRect, 1, 4)
        ; Keep the same aspect ratio
        Switch $wParam ; drag side or corner
            Case 1, 2 ; $WMSZ_LEFT, $WMSZ_RIGHT
                ; Calculate new height <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
                $iNew_H = Int($iRight - $iLeft)
                ; Set new value
                DllStructSetData($sRect, 1, DllStructGetData($sRect, 1, 2) + $iNew_H, 4)
            Case Else
                ; Calculate new width <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
                $iNew_W = Int($iBottom - $iTop)
                ; Set new value
                DllStructSetData($sRect, 1, DllStructGetData($sRect, 1, 1) + $iNew_W, 3)
        EndSwitch


    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>_WM_SIZING

You will need to adjust the formulae in the <<<<<<<<<<<<<< lines to get the aspect ratio you require. Please ask if you have any questions.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply,

I don't want the GUI to have the option to get resized by the user,

instead, I would like the GUI to initially have width and height, and make everything smaller or bigger according to the screen resolution so it will look the same on all screens. (while maintaining the initial design proportion for all controls).

 

*the problem is for screens that have low resolutions, so the GUI could be seen to high or too long.

Hope I didn't confuse you...

KfirAsulin,

Use the @DesktopWidth & @DesktopHeight macros to find out the actual screen resolution and then do some basic maths to determine the required GUI size for that screen. Create your GUI at a standard initial size and use the AutoItSetOption ( "GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKAUTO) directive so that the controls will resize correctly. Once the GUI is created, then resize the GUI to the required size using WinMove.
