Menus And Statusbar

22 posts in this topic

1. Does anyone know why Help->About and File->Exit take so long to execute (display the messagebox or exit) in this code? Clicking on the "X" to exit or clicking the button execute normally.

2. Also, does anyone know why double clicking the title bar doesn't resize/move the StatusBar correctly? Clicking the maximize/restore button resizes/moves the StatusBar correctly, but double clicking the title bar doesn't.

Hrm... I would have to say it has something to do with the socket you are trying to recieve at the first part of the script. Is there a way to loop that only in certain instances?

Seems like a bug in both situations to me. But I'm seeing if I'm doing something wrong. It appears that the UDPRecv is screwing up the menu messages being sent to GUIRecvMsg.

I came up with a thought to move the UDPRecv() to the bottom of the While loop, and that didnt help at all. I would have thought it would process it on a first come first serve basis. I am working on some other theories atm.

It was the answer to the second question, not the 1st one your working on

Try putting the other code in the else, will still be sluggish but not at bad, i.e.

Case Else
         $data = UDPRecv($socket_in,50)
         If $data <> "" Then
              MsgBox(0,"Testing","$data = " & $data)
         EndIf

udprecv is attempting to recieve up to 50 characters at the same time guigetmsg is expecting a key/mouse click event and keeps checking for it, so everytime udprecv runs yes the guigetmsg will be sluggish.

I'm sorry, I didn't make my self clear...I edited my first post. I was wondering why it didn't move the statusbar to the bottom of the GUI when double-clicking the title bar. Clicking maximize/restore button does do this.

change your case statement

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED Or $msg = $GUI_EVENT_MINIMIZE Or $msg = $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE Or $msg = $GUI_EVENT_RESTORE

@gafrost

This does not work (completely) if you double-click on the title bar. It resizes the control correctly, but does not move the statusbar to the bottom of the GUI as it should.

Try it:

- click the minimize/restore button to maximize and restore, then

- double-click the title bar to maximize and restore

Oh...I see what's going on with my second problem. Double-clicking the title bar doesn't trigger $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE. Is this a bug (or do I need to do some GUIRegisterMsg thing)? Double-clicking a title bar that is already maximized does trigger $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED.

Doubleclicking titlebar change the size so $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED is fired.

$GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE or $GUI_EVENT_MINIZE are fired when clicking on the correspondant button. :think:

JPM you are not right.

Look at my topic: in bug reports

It looks like $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED is not fired after maximizing.

livewire, trying using event mode instead. You don't want anything in a message loop which will slow down message processing. That's exactly what you have when you use internet related functions in your message loop.

it depends what you say by maximizing. The implementation is pushing on the button but not doubleclick on the windows title bar. :think:

JPM,

You are missing what we are saying. When a window is already maximized, when you double-click the title bar I would think that it should trigger $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED. It currently doesn't. Is this a bug?

I believe he knows exactly what you are saying. He agrees it should trigger that. (Correct me if I am wrong JPM)

IMO, this behavior is completely screwed up. When I have a window maximized and I double-click the titlebar, I expect to get $GUI_EVENT_RESTORE, not $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED. Also, when I double-click the titlebar of a non-maximized window, the window is maximized but I don't get an event at all.

The current behavior is:

  • Double click non-maximized window titlebar: The window is maximized and the event $GUI_EVENT_RESIZE is sent.
  • Double click maximized window titlebar: The window is restored and no event is sent.
This is the behavior I expect:
  • Double click non-maximized window titlebar: The window is maximized and the event $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE is sent.
  • Double click maximized window titlebar: The window is restored and the event $GUI_EVENT_RESTORE is sent.

I would expect that anything that causes the GUI to maximize would trigger $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE. I am now seeing that this is not the case. Only clicking the maximize button or selecting maximize in the system menu causes $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE.

This is similar for the other GUI EVENTS (RESTORE,MINIMIZE,etc.). For example, hitting "Windows Key" + M and "Windows Key" + Shift + M minimize and restore GUIs but do not trigger these events.

Is this how it should function? I'm just trying to make sure this is the functionality that you guys (AutoIt developers) want. If so, I will have to use GUIRegisterMsg.
