Constants for _WinAPI_GetSystemMetrics()

I noticed a lack of a constants file for _WinAPI_GetSystemMetrics() so I made this for anyone who wants to add it to their library. Enjoy! :) (file attached below)

Thanks for sharing.  Might I suggest appending SM_ to the constants?

Here ya go!

So, turns out most of those constants are included in the <WindowsConstants.au3> include.  I did some quick analysis and found the discrepancies:

WindowsConstants.au3 is missing:
Global Const $SM_CONVERTIBLESLATEMODE = 0x2003
Global Const $SM_CXFIXEDFRAME = 7
Global Const $SM_CXPADDEDBORDER = 92
Global Const $SM_CXSIZEFRAME = 32
Global Const $SM_CYFIXEDFRAME = 8
Global Const $SM_CYSIZEFRAME = 33
Global Const $SM_DIGITIZER = 94
Global Const $SM_MAXIMUMTOUCHES = 95
Global Const $SM_MOUSEHORIZONTALWHEELPRESENT = 91

WinAPISystemMetricsConstants.au3 is missing:
Global Const $SM_CARETBLINKINGENABLED = 0x2002
Global Const $SM_CMETRICS = 90
Global Const $SM_RESERVED1 = 24
Global Const $SM_RESERVED2 = 25
Global Const $SM_RESERVED3 = 26
Global Const $SM_RESERVED4 = 27

and WinAPISystemMetricsConstants.au3 has a small typo:
Global Const $SM_SERVERR = 289
should be
Global Const $SM_SERVERR2 = 89 (included in WindowsConstants.au3)

      Here the this wiki page with list of available UDFs for data compression. For my tasks I only need ZIP support, so I started looking at pure AutoIt UDFs without any 3rd party dlls. And found out that most of available realizations uses standard ("native method") Windows dll - "zipfldr.dll". So for now I chose ZIP UDF by wraithdu. I've tested it on Windows 7 (x64) and it seem works fine. But here the comment from another topic where user says that Windows 10 discontinued support of "zipfldr.dll". Now I confused. I don't have around any Windows 10 machine to tested it. So maybe someone could confirm or deny that? Or maybe would better to switch to UDF with 7zip dll?
      I need an advice...

      Hi Guys,
       
      I`m trying to record with my webcam in 5s intervalls and do some stuff between starting to record and stoping.
      I took code from here: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/27925-webcam-example/
      and took what looked relevant to me.
      I use 3 different files:
       Is called WMS.au3 and contains all the constants for the dll calls is called rec.au3 and does all necessary dll calls to start a webcam recording to a file Is called stopcam.exe and does the dll calls to stop recording into a file WMS.au3  :

      Unfortunately this is not working as I thought it would be working.
      Does someone see what I´m doing wrong?
      It should record the webcam for about 10 seconds ( a little less) and save that to an .avi file.
      It does not stop the recording , I have to stop the process manually...
      Secondly, which confuses me more is that it creates the test.avi not in the location is specified in the script... its stored in the ScriptDir for whatever reason haha
      I hope you can help me

      Here is the bare bones of a UDF I have started work on.
      Mostly just a proof of concept at this stage, and still need to add some functions and dress the UDF up a bit ... to look like a UDF ... though it has my own distinct styling, especially as I have never really developed a UDF before now .... used plenty and modified plenty though. I've even invented my own UDF variable naming convention, which I am sure some of you will be aghast at. I work with what feels best for me, but others are free to adapt if they wish.
      The idea is to emulate the simplicity of INI files, but gain the benefits of SQL.
      Two scripts are provided.
      (1) The UDF, a work in progress - SimpleSQL_UDF.au3
      (2) An example or testing script - UDF_Test.au3
      Another first for me, is creating a 2D array from scratch, never done that before, that I can recall ... never had a need, and even for 1 dimension arrays, for a long time now, I have just used _StringSplit to create them. So I needed a bit of a refresher course, which my good buddy @TheDcoder assisted me with ... not without some angst I might add. LOL
      SimpleSQL_UDF.zip  (12 downloads previously)
      (I have now completed all the functions I intended to. My next update will be a big improvement, bringing things more inline with my latest INItoSQL DB program changes.)
      Program requires the sqlite3.dll, not included, but easily enough obtained.
      Hopefully the usage is self-evident ... just change the Job number variable in the UDF_Test.au3 file to check the existing functions out.
      Enjoy!
      P.S. This is also related to a new program I have just finished and uploaded - INItoSQL DB

      I was looking around the help file and I came across _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawRect and _WinAPI_DrawLine and I seem to be having the same "problem" where every time it draws into a window and you lose or gain focus it has to redraw itself. Is there anyway around this? 
      #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #Include <GDIPlus.au3> _GDIPlus_Startup() Run("notepad.exe") $hWnd = WinWait("Untitled") $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hWnd) $Color = 0xFFFF0000 $hPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate($Color, 2) For $i = 1 To 10 _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawRect($hGraphic, 200, 200, 25 ,25, $hPen) ToolTip($i) Sleep(1000) Next _WinAPI_RedrawWindow($hWnd, 0, 0, $RDW_INVALIDATE + $RDW_ALLCHILDREN) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic) _GDIPlus_PenDispose($hPen) _GDIPlus_Shutdown()

      Hello,
      as a start in Autoit i tried something i was missing since im using Autoit. 

      I build a custom MessageBox which has a large amount of custom options and which scales its size on the parameters you set. 

      Aviable Settings:
      -Title
      -Unlimited Buttons
      -Text Color (Buttons, Text)

      -Background Color (Msgbox, Buttons, Label) 

      -Button Timeout
      -Autoclose Timeout
      -Icon (Default, No Icon, Custom)

      -Label/ Button Style. 
      -Transparency

      I tried to keep this as close as i could to a Msgbox i was used too on my batch times.

      After i was ready i realised, @Melba23 probably build a way better msgbox which would have suit my needs enterly, anyway thanks to @Melba23 because i use his Stringsize UDF. 

       
       
      local $Message = _sMsgBox("Test", 6, "Continue?") if @extended <> -1 Then MsgBox(0, @extended, $Message&" Button pressed")
