Tab Does Not Maximize

6 posts in this topic

I have incuded a $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX for my Gui window and when i hit the maximize box

then all controls adjust in size except for the TAB which remains fixed to the$min_width and

$min_height,

I removed all variable associations for the width and height and just had fixed numbers

but this still yielded no change in the tab size

one solution would be to make the whole Gui window the desktop size and adjust all co-ord values

and not have a $WSMAXIMIZEBOX

but it would be so much nicer to be able to maximize and restore back to original size

:think::):(

tab to a degree but i would have liked the normal tab operation

Try this (not sure if it will work or not)

$GUI_W = 400

$GUI_H = 250

GUICreate('My GUI',$GUI_W,$GUI_H)

GUICtrlCreateTab($GUI_W,$GUI_H,$TCS_OWNERDRAWFIXED)

Read GUICtrlSetResizing in the AU3 Help file.
