testing control for lost focus

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm in the middle of creating a taskbar replacement for windows and am lost on how to test for a window losing focus. I've tried adlibenable and an if (in main()) with no luck (see commented lines). Any thoughts?

CODE
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <Date.au3>

adlibenable("clockTimer", 100)

;adlibenable("goMenuTimer", 100)

$g_szVersion = "xpSkin"

If WinExists($g_szVersion) Then Exit

AutoItWinSetTitle($g_szVersion)

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "quit")

;create gui

$xpSkin = guicreate ("xpSkin", @desktopwidth / 4 * 3, @desktopheight/38.4, -1, @desktopheight - 25, BitOr($WS_POPUP,$WS_DLGFRAME,$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW))

GUISetBkColor(0x000000)

$goButton = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("Go", 3, 3, 25)

GUICtrlSetBkColor($goButton, 0x000000)

GUICtrlSetColor($goButton, 0x00ff00)

$clockPos = controlgetpos("xpSkin", "", $xpSkin)

$clock = guictrlcreatelabel ("", $clockPos[2] - 50, -1 + 5, BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))

$datePos = controlgetpos("", "", $clock)

GUICtrlSetTip($clock, _DateTimeFormat( _NowCalc(),1)) ;, $datePos[0] - 5, $datePos[1] - 5)

GUICtrlSetColor ($clock, 0x00ff00)

;main()

ControlHide ( "ClassName=Progman", "FolderView", "SysListView321")

ControlHide ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "TrayClockWClass1")

ControlHide ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "Button1")

ControlHide ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "Button2")

ControlHide ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "ToolbarWindow321")

ControlHide ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "ToolbarWindow322")

ControlHide ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "")

;display dialog on top of all windows

GUISetState (@SW_SHOW, $xpSkin)

winsetontop ("xpSkin", "", 1)

While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $goButton

GoMenu()

EndSelect

;if NOT winactive("GoMenu") then

;GUIDelete($goMenu)

;GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $xpSkin)

;endif

sleep (1)

WEnd

func clockTimer()

GUICtrlSetData($clock, @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC)

endfunc

Func GoMenu()

GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $xpSkin)

$goMenu = guicreate ("GoMenu", 200, 500, (@desktopwidth/4)/2 - 2, @desktopheight/3.2, BitOr($WS_POPUP,$WS_DLGFRAME,$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW))

GUISetBkColor(0x000000)

GUISetState (@SW_SHOW, $goMenu)

guiswitch($goMenu)

sleep(3000)

GUIDelete($goMenu)

GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $xpSkin)

endFunc

func goMenuTimer()

if NOT winactive("GoMenu") then

;GUIDelete($goMenu)

;GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $xpSkin)

endif

endfunc

Func quit()

Controlshow ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "")

Controlshow ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "TrayClockWClass1")

Controlshow ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "Button1")

Controlshow ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "Button2")

Controlshow ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "ToolbarWindow321")

Controlshow ( "ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "ToolbarWindow322")

Controlshow ( "ClassName=Progman", "", "SysListView321")

exit

EndFunc

Your post is kind of confusing, the title says "control" yet the post says "window", so I went off the code and took a guess this is what you are looking for, I marked what I did or added with ;######################

Edit:

Added codebox tags

Edit2:

P.S. Don't forget Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 4) since you are using classname= :whistle:

Thanks smoke_n, and sorry about the control/window specification, I suppose I'm not familiar yet with autoit symantecs. This code works great, though I cannot make $goMenu (the window that appears when you press go)disappear if it has lost focus. My changes are marked with ;######################

Basically, I changed func goMenu() to include a paramater testing for creation or deletion of the window.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
Global Const $WM_ACTIVATEAPP = 0x01C
AdlibEnable("clockTimer", 100)
;adlibenable("goMenuTimer", 100)

$g_szVersion = "xpSkin"
If WinExists($g_szVersion) Then Exit
AutoItWinSetTitle($g_szVersion)

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "quit")

;create gui
$xpSkin = GUICreate("xpSkin", @DesktopWidth / 4 * 3, @DesktopHeight / 38.4, -1, @DesktopHeight - 25, BitOR($WS_POPUP, $WS_DLGFRAME, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW))
GUISetBkColor(0x000000)

$goButton = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Go", 3, 3, 25)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($goButton, 0x000000)
GUICtrlSetColor($goButton, 0x00ff00)

$clockPos = ControlGetPos("xpSkin", "", $xpSkin)
$clock = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", $clockPos[2] - 50, -1 + 5, BitOR($SS_SIMPLE, $SS_SUNKEN))

$datePos = ControlGetPos("", "", $clock)
GUICtrlSetTip($clock, _DateTimeFormat(_NowCalc(), 1));, $datePos[0] - 5, $datePos[1] - 5)
GUICtrlSetColor($clock, 0x00ff00)

;main()
ControlHide("ClassName=Progman", "FolderView", "SysListView321")
ControlHide("ClassName=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "TrayClockWClass1")

I've found a solution...instead of using a label and window, I'm going to use GUICtrlCreateContextMenu. Thanks for all your help smoke_n. By the way, how in the world was I suppose to find / learn about your suggestion? Thanks! :

$WM_ACTIVATEAPP = 0x01C
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_ACTIVATEAPP, "_MY_WM_ACTIVATEAPP")
Func _MY_WM_ACTIVATEAPP($hwnd, $msg, $wParam, $lParam)
  Local $nNotifyCode = BitShift($wParam, 16)
  Local $nID = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF)
  Local $hCtrl = $lParam
  If $nID = 0 Then
  ;Window has lost focus
    ;MsgBox(64, 'Info', 'Your window has lost focus.');######################
    ;quit();######################
      GoMenu(1);######################
  EndIf
  Return 1
EndFunc;==>_MY_WM_ACTIVATEAPP

your suggested solution / code changes.

No worries... that's me watching a lot of others using GUIRegisterMsg() and using APIViewer2004.exe to play with the all the fun things in it... you should see some of these guys ... gafrost/eltorro and others that play with the function often and what they have shown the ability to be had from them.
