Move Msgbox?

6 posts in this topic

Hi.

MsgBoxes always are centrated on the screen. Is there a way to move it like inputboxes?

I want the MsgBox to pause the script for the user to click OK when the user is finished with the underlying program. But the MsgBox covers parts of the underlying program.

According to the help file message boxes are always centred. You can always make your own one using SplashTextOn and you can place it anywhere on the screen. Or you can make your own GUI.

Yes I know, but i thought that there might be a workaround or nifty tip, because I am a bit lazy... :o

But its time for me to learn to make GUIs.

Thanks for answer BigDod.

There is a very useful tool for making GUI's called Koda. It is available with Scite or can be downloaded separately.

Edit - You can download it at http://www.autoitscript.com/fileman/users/lookfar/index.html

Updated....works for both uncompiled and compiled scripts.

Put _DoTheMove() in the start, and _MoveMsgBox right before the MsgBoxes you want to move.

_DoTheMove()
_MoveMsgBox("MsgBox Title", 0, 100)
MsgBox(64, "MsgBox Title", "MsgBox Text")

Func _DoTheMove()
If $CMDLine[0] = 4 AND $CMDLine[1] = "-move" Then
  Opt("WinWaitDelay", 0)
  WinWait($CMDLine[2])
  WinMove($CMDLine[2], "", $CMDLine[3], $CMDLine[4])
  Exit  
EndIf
EndFunc

Func _MoveMsgBox($sTitle, $iPosX, $iPosY)
If @Compiled Then
  Run('"' & @ScriptFullPath & '" -move "' & $sTitle & '" ' & $iPosX & " " & $iPosY)
Else
  Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '" "' & @ScriptFullPath & '" -move "' & $sTitle & '" ' & $iPosX & " " & $iPosY)
EndIf
EndFunc

...but small modifications would make it work as uncompiled.

; Move Message Box
; Author - herewasplato

_MoveMsgBox(0, "testTitle", "testText", 0, 10)

Func _MoveMsgBox($MBFlag, $MBTitle, $MBText, $x, $y)
    Local $file = FileOpen(EnvGet("temp") & "\MoveMB.au3", 2)
    If $file = -1 Then Return;if error, give up on the move
    
    Local $line1 = 'AutoItSetOption(' & '"WinWaitDelay", 0' & ')'
    Local $line2 = 'WinWait("' & $MBTitle & '", "' & $MBText & '")'
    Local $line3 = 'WinMove("' & $MBTitle & '", "' & $MBText & '"' & ', ' & $x & ', ' & $y & ')'
    FileWrite($file, $line1 & @CRLF & $line2 & @CRLF & $line3)
    FileClose($file)
    
    Run(@AutoItExe & " /AutoIt3ExecuteScript " & EnvGet("temp") & "\MoveMB.au3")
    
    MsgBox($MBFlag, $MBTitle, $MBText)
    
    FileDelete(EnvGet("temp") & "\MoveMB.au3")
EndFunc;==>_MoveMsgBox
Edit: requires beta
