API Dialog Programming Reference

7 posts in this topic

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/wi...siderations.asp

Although our GUI is created with a standard CreateWindow() call, it uses the DefDialogProc() and IsDialogMessage() functions and therefore acts as a standard dialog.

The article above discusses how the dialog procedure handles certain messages and how everything is expected to work - it's also what I've been studying in my recent code changes to the GUI.

Just for reference for anyone examining the GUI code.

Thanks Jon,

That's not covering Tab control.

I think we could add something to handle Ctrl-Tab to switch from tab to tab. Currently Ctrl-Tab act as Tab. :D

What is this ctrl-tab thing? Is it something you've seen in another application?

I checked the .24 jpm build and that doesn't seem to do anything with ctrl-tab?

At the moment you can tab to a tab control and then use the arrow keys to switch tabs, i've never seen ctrl-tab used but I'll have another look now.

I don't I never have it working but take for instance the system in control panel you will see what i mean.

I have no idea why all windows tab seem to switch from tab to tab with Ctrl-tab

Some information:

Only if a tab control has focus you can switch through the tabs using CTRL+TAB.

Else the CTRL+TAB won't do a thing.

Edit:

I noticed that CTRL+TAB works on MS-made tabs.

I only have the issue (see above) with AutoIt Gui-made tabs.

Looks like they are all "property sheets" which look like tabs but are different - they handle ctrl-tab automatically as well. Haven't found an easy way for us yet.,

This is more of a work-around, but defining the hotkey of control+tab could let you script a function to change tabs.
