Status Bar

54 posts in this topic

A nice StatusBar window in AutoIT. Help me figure out how to Set and Get the StatusBar text.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
Const $CCS_TOP = 0x1
Const $SBARS_SIZEGRIP = 0x100
Const $SB_SETTEXT = 0x0401
Const $SB_GETTEXT = 0x0402

$Main = GUICreate("StatusBar GUI")
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)

$StatusBar = DllCall("comctl32.dll","long", "CreateStatusWindow", "long", BitOR($WS_CHILD,$WS_VISIBLE,$SBARS_SIZEGRIP), "str", "AutoIt Status Bar","hwnd",$Main,"int",0)
MsgBox(0,'StatusBar Handle',$StatusBar[0])

GUICtrlSendMsg($StatusBar[0],$SB_SETTEXT,0,"New Text"); does not work.
$ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar[0], "int", $SB_SETTEXT, "int", 0, "str", "New Text"); does not work.
$pet = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar[0], "int", $SB_GETTEXT, "int", 0, "int", 0); does not work.

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
Wend

@rysiora

:P Nice script.

I was looking for some way to display the Status Bar control through API. While I got many Visual Basic examples, I could not convert them to AutoIt because I'm not very good with the DLLStruct stuff.

The line to set the status bar text works. (WinXP Pro SP2)

The next line to get the status bar text does not work. This probably need use of DllStruct to create a buffer to recieve the Status Bar text. Also it requires that you specify the Status Bar panel number from where you want to retrieve the text.

As I said, I cannot help you with this. I'm sure other advanced members will be able to come up with some sort of UDF to wrap the API DllCalls for the Status Bar functions.

Thanks for the excellent script. I'll look into it in more detail in the next few days.

Regards,

Tonedeaf

eeee.... hmm... Your script really doesn't satisfies me... sry

@tonedeaf

Thanks

I agree with you, this may need DllStruct:

SO, ADVANCED MEMBERS! Help us with this!

$StatusBar = DllCall("comctl32.dll", "long", "CreateStatusWindow", "long", BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_VISIBLE, $SBARS_SIZEGRIP), "str", "AutoIt Status Bar", "hwnd", $Main, "int", 0)
sleep(3000)
$ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar[0], "int", $SB_SETTEXT, "int", 0, "strptr", "New Text"); does work !!!!.

Edit: And this will read it:

$pet = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar[0], "int", $SB_GETTEXT, "int", 0, "strptr", ""); does not work.
For $x = 1 to 4
    ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(12) : $pet[' &$x &'] = ' & $pet[$x] & @lf)

It works very nice, thanks! Works in beta (tested in 3.1.1 and doesn't work...)

By default, the status bar panel has only one part and the width is equal to the entire Status Bar.

I tried to add multiple parts, but failed again in DllStuct and DllCall. :P

Anyway I modified the script to specify the width of the first part

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Global Const $CCS_TOP = 0x1
Global Const $SBARS_SIZEGRIP = 0x100
Global Const $SB_SETTEXT = 0x0401
Global Const $SB_GETTEXT = 0x0402
Global Const $SB_SETPARTS = 0x0404

Local $gui, $StatusBar1, $ret1, $msg
Local $sStatusText, $iPartWidth

$iPartWidth = 100

$gui = GUICreate("StatusBar GUI")
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)

$StatusBar1 = DllCall("comctl32.dll","long", "CreateStatusWindow", "long", BitOR($WS_CHILD,$WS_VISIBLE,$SBARS_SIZEGRIP), "str", "AutoIt Status Bar","hwnd",$gui,"int",0)

DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", $SB_SETPARTS, "int", 2, "int_ptr", $iPartWidth)

DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", $SB_SETTEXT, "int", 0, "str", "New Text")

$ret1 = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", $SB_GETTEXT, "int", 0, "strptr", "")

MsgBox(0, "Status Bar Example", "Status Bar handle: " & $StatusBar1[0] & @CRLF & _
        "Status Bar text: " & $ret1[4])

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

If you want to use StatusBar in GUI that has sizing box...

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global Const $CCS_TOP = 0x1
Global Const $CCS_NOMOVEY = 0x2
Global Const $CCS_BOTTOM = 0x3
Global Const $CCS_NORESIZE = 0x4
Global Const $CCS_NOPARENTALIGN = 0x8
Global Const $CCS_NOHILITE = 0x10
Global Const $CCS_ADJUSTABLE = 0x20
Global Const $CCS_NODIVIDER = 0x40

Global Const $SBARS_SIZEGRIP = 0x100
Global Const $SB_SETTEXT = 0x401
Global Const $SB_GETTEXT = 0x402
Global Const $SB_GETTEXTLENGTH = 0x403
Global Const $SB_SETPARTS = 0x404
Global Const $SB_GETPARTS = 0x406
Global Const $SB_GETBORDERS = 0x407
Global Const $SB_SETMINHEIGHT = 0x408
Global Const $SB_SIMPLE = 0x409
Global Const $SB_GETRECT = 0x40A
Global Const $SB_ISSIMPLE = 0x40E

$iPartWidth = 100

$gui = GUICreate("StatusBar GUI", -1, -1, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

$StatusBar1 = DllCall("comctl32.dll", "long", "CreateStatusWindow", "long", BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_VISIBLE, $SBARS_SIZEGRIP, $CCS_BOTTOM), "str", "AutoIt Status Bar", "hwnd", $gui, "int", 0)

DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", $SB_SETPARTS, "int", 2, "int_ptr", $iPartWidth)

DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", $SB_SETTEXT, "int", 0, "str", "New Text")
DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", $SB_SETTEXT, "int", 1, "str", "More Text")

$ret1 = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", $SB_GETTEXT, "int", 0, "strptr", "")
$ret2 = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", $SB_GETTEXT, "int", 1, "strptr", "")

MsgBox(0, "Status Bar Example", "Status Bar handle: " & $StatusBar1[0] & @CRLF & "Status Bar text index(0): " & $ret1[4] & @CRLF & "Status Bar text index(1): " & $ret2[4])

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED Then DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "MoveWindow", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", 0, "int", 0, "int", 0, "int", 0)
WEnd

You have to add:

DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "MoveWindow", "hwnd", $StatusBar1[0], "int", 0, "int", 0, "int", 0, "int", 0)

Wasn't showing how to re-size, was showing how to update more than just 1 part of the status bar.

Well people, I wiped up a udf for the statusbar. Only 1 problem though, I can't seem to figure how to pass the array to $SB_SETPARTS in order to set the size of each part.

I have tried sending an array, the first element of an array ($array[0]), the struct, a ptr to the struct and a ptr to the first element of the struct.

The dllcall seems to only be picking up the first element when the first element is referenced.

Could this be a bug in DllCall???

The call is succeeding on some level as the text for the parts can be retrieved. which leads me to think that the part borders are created on top of each other.

@eltorro

:lmao: Nice work on the UDF.

Only 1 problem though, I can't seem to figure how to pass the array to $SB_SETPARTS in order to set the size of each part.

The call is succeeding on some level as the text for the parts can be retrieved. which leads me to think that the part borders are created on top of each other.

That is the same issue i faced. I hope someone can throw light on sending a pointer to an array in DllCall to create multiple parts in Status Bar.

Regards,

Tonedeaf

@gafrost

Thanks, a valuable lesson learned. I believe I tried int_prt and long_ptr but never tried ptr by itself.

@everyone,

We now have a working udf for the statusbar thanks to Gary.

Please keep in mind that your prog must handle the resize event for the statusbar. See Example prog.

Edit: Here is a fix for default part sizing in the GuiCtrStatusBarSetParts func.

;=== Set each panel to be same size and assign the last one the remainder
   If Not IsArray($a_PanelWidth) Then
      Dim $a_PanelWidth[$i_Panels], $panel, $size, $strPanel, $struct_Panel
      $size = WinGetClientSize("")
      For $panel = 1 To $i_Panels
         $a_PanelWidth[$panel-1] = Int(($size[0] / $i_Panels) * $panel)
     Next
     $a_PanelWidth[$i_Panels - 1] = -1
   EndIf
 ;== end set sizing

You might want to add icons to your status bar

opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

#include-once
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Local $a[3] = [100, 350, -1]
Local $s[3] = ["New Text", "How about music", "Even More Text"]
$gui = GUICreate("StatusBar GUI", 500, -1, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

$StatusBar1 = _GuiCtrlCreateStatusBar ($gui, $a, $s)
_GuiCtlrStatusBarSetIcon($StatusBar1, 0, "shell32.dll", 21)
_GuiCtlrStatusBarSetIcon($StatusBar1, 1, "shell32.dll", 168)
_GuiCtlrStatusBarSetIcon($StatusBar1, 2, "shell32.dll", 24)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED
            _GuiCtrlStatusBarResize ($StatusBar1)
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case Else
    ;;;;;
    EndSelect
    
WEnd

Func _GuiCtlrStatusBarSetIcon($StatusBar, $i_part, $szIconFile, $iconID)
    Local $hIcon = DllStructCreate("int")
    Local $result = DllCall("shell32.dll", "int", "ExtractIconEx", "str", "shell32.dll", "int", $iconID, "hwnd", 0, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($hIcon), "int", 1)
