_GuiCtrlStatusBar

23 posts in this topic

Is it in someway possible to create a StatusBar with _GuiCtrlStatusBarCreate and hide it in you program and show it again in some other part of your program ?

If yes how can we do that ?

Not sure what exactly you mean, but why not just create a status bar on the other part of your program?

Now i use a smal window as a statusbar and with GUICtrlSetState($guiStatus1,$GUI_HIDE) i hide them

Is this also possible for the _GuiCtrlStatusBar ?

Might be able to just use ControlHide() :whistle:

Good luck, I believe the status bar hooks into the gui, try hiding it using controlhide and see what happens.

It can be destroyed (deleted) and a new one created i.e.

opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)
Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 4)

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiStatusBar.au3>

Local $gui, $StatusBar1, $msg
Local $a_PartsRightEdge[3] = [100, 350, -1]
Local $a_PartsText[3] = ["New Text", "More Text", "Even More Text"]

$gui = GUICreate("Status Bar Create", 500, -1, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX)
ConsoleWrite(HWnd($gui) & @LF)
$StatusBar1 = _GUICtrlStatusBarCreate ($gui, $a_PartsRightEdge, $a_PartsText)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Sleep ( 3000 )
DllCall("user32.dll","int","DestroyWindow","hwnd",HWnd($StatusBar1))
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
;~      Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED
;~          _GUICtrlStatusBarResize ($StatusBar1)
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case Else
            ;;;;;
    EndSelect
    
WEnd

can also hide it and show it might add a few more functions to the udf

Sleep ( 3000 )
DllCall("user32.dll","int","ShowWindow","hwnd",HWnd($StatusBar1),"int",@SW_HIDE)
Sleep ( 3000 )
DllCall("user32.dll","int","ShowWindow","hwnd",HWnd($StatusBar1),"int",@SW_SHOW)

how does one get the text in the statusbar to be centered? I've tried using the $SS_CENTER and doesn't seem to work.

You would have to create an owner-drawn statusbar, this one is not owner-drawn.

Hmm ok, I'll see what I can do otherwise.

On another note, how about a progress bar in the status bar? I tried to do something like this where the partsrightedge would increase and then the background of the bar color would redraw but can't get the color to take.

#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>
#include <guiconstants.au3>
Dim $a_PartsRightEdge = 0
Dim $a_PartsText = ""

$count = 1
$sbp = GUICreate("Status Progress Bar",200,200,-1,-1)
;GUICtrlSetResizing(-1,$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$StatusBar1 = _GuiCtrlStatusBarCreate($sbp, $a_PartsRightEdge, $a_PartsText, $SBT_TOOLTIPS)
_GuiCtrlStatusBarSetMinHeight($StatusBar1, 10)
_GUICtrlStatusBarSetBKColor($statusbar1,0x0ff0000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($statusbar1,0x0ff0000)
GUISetState()
For $x = 1 To 200 Step 1
    $StatusBar1 = _GuiCtrlStatusBarCreate($sbp, $x, $a_PartsText, $SBT_TOOLTIPS)
    _GUICtrlStatusBarResize($StatusBar1)
    _GUICtrlStatusBarSetBKColor($statusbar1,0x001421)
    Sleep(200)
Next
$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSelect
WEnd

You would have to create an owner-drawn statusbar, this one is not owner-drawn.

Owner draw is not needed. :)

It's very simple:

By default, text is left-aligned within the specified part of a status bar.

You can embed tab characters (\ t) in the text to center or right-align it.

Text to the right of a single tab character is centered,

and text to the right of a second tab character is right-aligned.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiStatusBar.au3>

Local $a_PartsRightEdge[3] = [100, 350, -1]
Local $a_PartsText[3] = [@TAB & @TAB & "New Text", "Left" & @TAB & "Center" & @TAB & "Right", "Even More Text"]

$gui = GUICreate("Status Bar Create", 500, -1, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX)
$StatusBar1 = _GUICtrlStatusBarCreate ($gui, $a_PartsRightEdge, $a_PartsText)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

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