Display GUI on the current active desktop

Recommended Posts

Hi, when I call a MsgBox function I can use a "$MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION" flag so it will be displayed "on the current active desktop, even if there is no user logged on to the computer.". That works just great. Is there a way to do the same to Autoit GUI Form so it will be visible on desktop even if running from system account and user is not logged?

      Hi all,
      I've been looking around the forum and testing different ways of getting a 'drop zone' to work in my script, but I can't seem to get any response from the event listener. Code compiles perfectly. Chaning the control from a label to an input- or edit-field doesn't change its behaviour, still no response when a file is dropped on there...
      It might just be that I am overlooking a simple detail, so I'm hoping for an extra pair of eyes here or there who can spot why this isn't working as it should. 
      I have another 3500+ lines script where I have basically the same bit of code, and it seems to work in there without problems.
      So, here it goes:
      Global $DD_GUI = GUICreate("DicomDrop",200,200,-1,-1,BitOR($WS_SYSMENU,$WS_POPUP),$WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES) GUISetBkColor(0x030303,$DD_GUI) $DD_GUI_DRAGLABEL = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",0,0,32,32,-1, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG) $DD_GUI_DRAGIMAGE = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptFullPath,201,0,0,32,32) $DD_GUI_TITLELABEL = GUICtrlCreateLabel("DicomDrop",50,10,100,20,$SS_CENTER) GUICtrlSetFont($DD_GUI_TITLELABEL,8,$FW_SEMIBOLD,$GUI_FONTNORMAL,"Verdana") GUICtrlSetColor($DD_GUI_TITLELABEL,0xFFFFFF) $DD_GUI_CLOSE = GUICtrlCreateButton("X",174,4,24,24,$BS_FLAT) GUICtrlSetBkColor($DD_GUI_CLOSE,0x030303) GUICtrlSetColor($DD_GUI_CLOSE,0xFFFFFF) Global $DD_GUI_DROPZONE = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",10,42,180,148) GUICtrlSetState(-1,8) GUICtrlSetBkColor($DD_GUI_DROPZONE,0x181818) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$DD_GUI) Local $DD_MSG = 0 While 1 $DD_MSG = GUIGetMsg() Select Case $DD_MSG = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Debug -- Closed by GUI_EVENT_CLOSE") DD_EXIT() Case $DD_MSG = $GUI_EVENT_DROPPED If @GUI_DropId = $DD_GUI_DROPZONE Then Local $DroppedFile = @GUI_DragFile GUIDelete() ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Debug -- Dropped file : " & $DroppedFile) EndIf Case $DD_MSG = $DD_GUI_CLOSE ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Debug -- Closed by DD_GUI_CLOSEIMAGE") DD_EXIT() EndSelect WEnd Func DD_EXIT() GUIDelete($DD_GUI) Exit EndFunc If anyone has any idea whatsoever, please let me know 🙂
      Thanks in advance and kind regards,

      Hi AutoIters!
      Here is my new UDF about GUIs: it's an enhanced mixture of Advanced InputBox (deprecated) and KODA Parser (deprecated), with additional functions.
      What you can do with it:
      Parse KODA files and directly create GUIs (_GUIUtils_CreateFromKODA) Parse a simple JSON form definition to simply create advanced InputBoxes with any amount/type of input controls (_GUIUtils_CreateFromJSON) Created GUIs are returned as Scripting.Dictionary objects, and you have helper functions to access GUIs controls by their names (_GUIUtils_HWnd, _GUIUtils_CtrlID, _GUIUtils_HCtrl ...) A function that can make a GUI created from KODA/JSON (defined by it's $oForm object) and make it a modal InputDialogBox (just like InputBox, but returns all entered data as Scripting.Dictionary object) Functions are documented, and there are some examples.
      Consider this UDF as beta, but since I'm currently using it in a small commercial project, it should become production ready in near future.
      To always get the latest code version, get it from Github (more up to date than this topic).
      Update 04/02/2020:
      New simple application example Fixed focused control handling in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Reset input values before returning from _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed CloseOnEsc in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed Input not reset Fixed all ListBox items are selected Project now on GitHub https://github.com/matwachich/autoit-guiutils/
      Update 05/02/2020:
      Support for nodate for Date and Time input controls (pass null value) New handling of focused control _GUIUtils_InputDialog: Now, you can specify the focused control in $oInitialData by setting "controlName:focus" = True Updated documentation of _GUIUtils_InputDialog Update 07/02/2020:
      Bug corrected when setting Data input control Added: abillity to read a single input control New functions (_GUIUtils_GetInputs, _GUIUtils_WriteInputs), documentation completion. Readme file and screenshots on Github Page

      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

      Hello forum,
      I want to create a program with multiple menus and many elements inside. The problem is my way of doing this and below I have an example of how I do these menus.
      I know it's a bad way of doing them as using this method for more elements and menus cause big flickering.
       
      Can someone please help me with some tips of optimizing this or tell me another way of creating that menus with many elements without cause flickering? From a long time ago I still try to solve this but without any results, just small improvements.
      Many thanks for everyone.
