Can GUIs have Dialog style?

5 posts in this topic

Is is possible to create a GUI window that looks like the following MsgBox?

WinSpy++ reports the following styles.

Window Style: 94C803C5

WS_POPUPWINDOW  80880000
WS_VISIBLE  10000000
WS_CLIPSIBLINGS 04000000
WS_DLGFRAME 00400000
DS_ABSALIGN 00000001
DS_SETFONT  00000040
DS_MODALFRAME   00000080
DS_NOIDLEMSG    00000100
DS_SETFOREGROUND    00000200
DS_3DLOOK   00000004


Extended Style: 00010101

WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME 00000001
WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE    00000100
WS_EX_LEFT  00000000
WS_EX_LTRREADING    00000000
WS_EX_RIGHTSCROLLBAR    00000000
WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT 00010000

It appears that GuiCreate(...) does not support "DS_..." Styles, because WinSpy++ reports the following when I try GuiCreate("Title", 100, 100, 0, 0, 0x94C803C5, 0x00010101)

Window Style:  94C803C5

WS_POPUPWINDOW  80880000
WS_VISIBLE  10000000
WS_CLIPSIBLINGS 04000000
WS_DLGFRAME 00400000
000003C5    000003C5 <--- notice this


Extended Style:  00050101

WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME 00000001
WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE    00000100
WS_EX_LEFT  00000000
WS_EX_LTRREADING    00000000
WS_EX_RIGHTSCROLLBAR    00000000
WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT 00010000
WS_EX_APPWINDOW 00040000

Does the fact that a MsgBox window is Class "#32770" and the fact that a GUI Window is Class "AutoIt v3 GUI" make a difference???

The only thing I can create is such a msgbox, but only with an icon like this:

#include "GUIConstants.au3"
$DS_MODALFRAME = 0x80

GUICreate("Example",155,75,-1,-1,BitOr(BitOr($DS_MODALFRAME,$WS_CAPTION),$WS_SYSMENU))
$label = GUISetControl("label","Msgbox(0,""Example"",""FOO"")",10,10,200,16)
$button= GUISetControl("button","OK",45,40,70,23)
GUISetControlEx(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)
GUIShow()
GUIWaitClose()
GUIDelete()

@CyberSlug: is this what you need or do you want the icon 'away'?

EDIT: otherwise you create a GUI without any closing button (without WS_SYSMENU) like:

#include "GUIConstants.au3"
$DS_MODALFRAME = 0x80

GUICreate("Example",155,75,-1,-1,BitOr($DS_MODALFRAME,$WS_CAPTION))
$label = GUISetControl("label","Msgbox(0,""Example"",""FOO"")",10,10,200,16)
$button= GUISetControl("button","OK",45,40,70,23)
GUISetControlEx(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)
GUIShow()
GUIWaitClose()
GUIDelete()

Edit2: that is what you can also use:

GUICreate("Example",155,75,-1,-1,BitOr(BitOr(BitOr($DS_MODALFRAME,$WS_POPUP),$WS_CAPTION),$WS_SYSMENU),$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)

So you have a GUI with only a small closing button but no icon :D

Ah, thank you for that third example!

I'm attempting to document useful window styles:
