about - Fixed #3682: GuiCtrlCreatePic() with h=0 and w=0.

I use the following with the current release 33.14.5 which produces the right-hand  graphic below:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_File_Add="icons\shark.png", RT_RCDATA, shark, 0

#include <ResourcesEx.au3>

Global $Pic = GUICtrlCreatePic('', -1, -1) ; logo
_Resource_SetToCtrlID($Pic, 'shark')
GUICtrlSetPos($Pic, 205, 70, 140, 140)

One other thing I should point out is that I use, #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=Y
which means my positioning line is actually, GUICtrlSetPos($Pic, 205 * $iScale, 70 * $iScale, 140 * $iScale, 140 * $iScale)
where $iScale is relative to the screen scaling. (150% scaling = a 1.5 multiplication factor) Maybe this is where my issue lies.

No matter what I change I always get the same size (visible) pic using the beta. (to small).
I am able to confirm that 140x140 pixels are allocated to the graphic but for whatever reason,
the visible pic does not fill that space.

The png is natively 140x140 but I cannot make it display in that size. (screen positioning is no issue)

Below, the larger graphic is correct. The smaller graphic is from the Beta which does allocate the 140x140 pixels to the graphic, it just doesn't fill the allocated space.

Hi Jon,
To me, the pic issue with "set width and height to 0" is solved now in Beta, after you closed Trac ticket #3682 about 29 hours ago. The issue was fully described in this link . Here are the results that I just tested : what didn't work in beta (where the pic was always resized to 150x150) works now in beta (where the pic is displayed with its original coords : 271 x 399)

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate("163 - AutoIt " & @AutoItVersion, 300, 435)
GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\163 - Original pic.jpg", 1, 1, 0, 0)



Good job and many thanks for this incredible AutoIt scripting language :thumbsup:

Is there a consensus on the Map variable type? Is it sticking around?

I know the help file has the giant experimental feature warning, but it's been a thing for a while and I'm just wondering if there's been any more solid decisions made on whether it's staying or not.

I've personally been avoiding it because I didn't want the rug pulled from under me when it gets deprecated. 😅

Jon managed to get the known Map bugs fixed in the new Beta and no-one has come up with any new problems of note yet.  I think you could safely assume that the functionality will be included in the next release - but as always, no promises.


Thanks Melba. I wouldn't expect any promises, I get how fickle development can be.

@VIP  Tested it (on Beta and working for me :

>Running:(\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "C:\Applications\AutoIt\ZZTemp\Temp6.au3"    
+>Setting Hotkeys...--> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+BREAK to Stop.
"C:\Applications\AutoIt\ZZTemp\Temp6.au3" (5) : ==> Variable used without being declared.:
$test = 0
->09:30:25 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:1

Beside Opt ("MustDeclareVars", True) is not run by Au3Check.exe but by AutoIt3.exe

False ! Scite runs both (first au3check then autoit3).  But Opt is performed by autoit3.  For proof, in Scite, you can disable au3check (just go in compile and uncheck au3check) and you still got the error message from autoit3...

True, but only when the full package is installed. ;) 
... either way: I first need the requested information so we understand the issue correctly! :)

@Nine You don't seem to understand what I mean.

I don't care about autoit3.exe. It has the sole task of serving testing and debugging.

Autoit3.exe does not check the script, it executes the script sequentially until it detects an error and stops right there. That is, only 1 error is detected.
The syntax error checking does not execute Autoit3.exe.
The Autoit3.exe execution was done by the full Scite to execute the AutoIt3Wrapper.au3 script and it still executes in the end: Au3Check.exe <my script.au3>

With the new version of Au3Check with the below script it does not detect errors and warnings.
If you compile or run the test. will immediately fail! A very serious omission!

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1) ;0=no, 1=require pre-declaration
AutoItSetOption("MustDeclareVars", 1)  ;0=no, 1=require pre-declaration

$Var1 = 0
$Var2 = 'Value 2'
$Var3 = 'Value 3'

MsgBox($Var1, $Var2, $Var3)

Show an script you have issues with and all the SciTE console output for the correct and the wrong version.


First part is there ....the rest is still missing and I need those details before I can have a proper look!
