How can i change the Class of my gui?


Recommended Posts

Hello again!

I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.:(

First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.

Any help is appreciated! Thank you! :)

You could experiment with _WinAPI_RegisterClass and then _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx to create your window.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I'd do a search for the functions online and if they still don't make sense, then perhaps you're not ready for this yet. It's not an easy task, and there's no built-in function to do it for you.

      Hi all,
      The more projects I work on, the harder it is to find old scripts I created with certain techniques in them. I'd like to leave this here for others to get an idea from and it will be available now by keyword searching in this forum.
      This project needed an evenly distributed button grid setup on a touch screen with half decent sized buttons and spacing so the user would be less likely to press the key beside it. Here is one quick example to give anyone an idea of a way to handle it.
      #include <GUIConstants.au3> GUICreate("Button Grid", 1080, 100) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box ;--Create and Position Controls Dim $btnActivated[1][2] ;Col 1 is button id, Col 2 is True/False used in 1 example as depressed Dim $btnArray[100][2] ;Col 1 is button id, Col 2 is True/False used in 1 example as depressed $num = 0 $btnActivated[0][0] = GUICtrlCreateButton("Activated", 0, 0, 100, 100) ;x,y,w,h $btnActivated[0][1] = True GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x00ff00) GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0x005500) GUICtrlSetFont(-1,14) For $Y = 0 To 1 For $X = 0 To 7 ConsoleWrite( ($X * 100) + ($X*20) + 120 & @CRLF) If $Y=0 Then $btnArray[$num][0] = GUICtrlCreateButton($num + 1, ($X * 100) + ($X*20) + 120, 0, 100, 40) ;x,y,w,h Else $btnArray[$num][0] = GUICtrlCreateButton($num + 1, ($X * 100) + ($X*20) + 120, ($Y * 40) + $Y*20, 100, 40) ;x,y,w,h EndIf GUICtrlSetBkColor($btnArray[$num][0], 0xFFFFFF) $num += 1 Next Next ;--Set Button Names GUICtrlSetData($btnArray[0][0],"Autoit") GUICtrlSetData($btnArray[1][0],"Is") GUICtrlSetData($btnArray[2][0],"Cool") ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed While 1 $msg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $msg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop Case $btnActivated[0][0] $btnActivated[0][1] = NOT $btnActivated[0][1] If $btnActivated[0][1] Then GUICtrlSetBkColor($btnActivated[0][0],0x00ff00) GUICtrlSetColor($btnActivated[0][0],0x005500) GUICtrlSetData($btnActivated[0][0],"Activated") GUICtrlSetFont($btnActivated[0][0],14) Else GUICtrlSetBkColor($btnActivated[0][0],0xFF9999) GUICtrlSetColor($btnActivated[0][0],0x550000) GUICtrlSetData($btnActivated[0][0],"DeActivated") GUICtrlSetFont($btnActivated[0][0],13) EndIf Case $btnArray[0][0] If $btnActivated[0][1] Then MsgBox(0,"Notice","Btn1",1) EndIf Case $btnArray[1][0] If $btnActivated[0][1] Then MsgBox(0,"Notice","Btn2",1) EndIf Case $btnArray[2][0] If $btnActivated[0][1] Then MsgBox(0,"Notice","Btn3",1) EndIf EndSwitch WEnd I couldn't find one of my old projects that broke the button array into more columns that included the actual button name in the field. Feel free to share your own or share a more flexible version of this simple example.

      I am making some GUI with combobox for the Baudrates communications and I listed 9600, 57600, 115200. 
      I wrote the code to be defaulted to 57600 like this:
      GUICtrlSetData($comboBox_opticalBaudRate, "9600|57600|115200", "57600")
      But I wanted the GUI to remember the last item the user picks so the baudrates will NOT be defaulted to 57600.
      Example, I pick 9600 as my baudrates, then I close the GUI, after opening it, it always prompt 57600 since that is what I did in my code. But I want that if I choose 9600 and close the GUI, opening it again will show 9600 now instead of 57600.
      Is there a way to do it in GUI setting?
       
      Thanks.

      ciao
      I have a Delphi compiled program that I use for work and I can read some logs with this function:
      Func __ReadExternalListBox() Local $hListBox, $iItemCount $hListBox = ControlGetHandle("Software Setup", "", "[CLASS:TListBox; INSTANCE:1]") ConsoleWrite("$hListBox = " & $hListBox & @CRLF) $iItemCount = _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($hListBox) For $i = $iStart To $iItemCount - 1 ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlListBox_GetText($hListBox,$i) & @CRLF) Next EndFunc ;==>__ReadExternalListBox I can find pid and full path of the process.
      The problem is when I must open another process: I can't read the new ListBox because the title of the window to read is the same and the function 
      $hListBox = ControlGetHandle("Software Setup", "", "[CLASS:TListBox; INSTANCE:1]") return me only one handle.
      With Autoinfo I can read handle: is, for this instance, 0x0001099C and is $hListBox

      But I need to automize some function and I can't always change in runtime this values.
      Ideas? Is there e method to read this title windows associated to a determined pid?
      PS:
      I don't need the handle from the pid windows application, but from its control
      if I use
      _WinAPI_EnumProcessWindows() the function return me window handle, not Control handle
      I
      In this case Windows Handle is 0x001007DA but I need Control Handle that is 0x0001099C
      Thankyou
      Marco

      Hi,
      I am having a problem properly saving the Width of a resizable Gui.
      When a user resizes the Gui it gets saved in an ini when the Gui closes to then restore the new Width upon reopening the app.
      with GUICreate("myGui",300,200,Default,Default,$WS_SIZEBOX)
      WinGetPos($hGUI) returns 314, and WinGetClientSize($hGUI) returns 298
      when its then saved in the ini the gui keeps expanding or shrinking every time its opened by +14 or -2
      I figure it has to do with borders etc, but i also guess borders depend on the window theme and whatnot or is user specific, so i can't just do $GuiWidth = $GetGuiWidth[arr] -14 or +2 right?

      is there a proper way of doing this?
      Thanks in advance,
      Aapjuh
