_WinAttach()!

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi all,

This example is show, that window can be "attached" (like magnetic) to edges of the screen (or other app)...

But there is one(?) problem - when you drag the window, the script is paused, so you will see the results (of "attaching" process) only after release the mouse (ending of draging).

If this will be fixed(?), then not only this function will be much usefull, and more others (in fact, all our scripts will be much productive and practical :shocked: ).

here we go...

$AttachRange = 70
$AttachSpeed = 100

$HwndGui = GUICreate("Attach Window GUI to screen edges")

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Drag me to the edges of your screen ;-) ", 50, 50, 350)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $Msg = -3 Then Exit
    _WinAttach($HwndGui, $AttachRange, $AttachSpeed)
WEnd

Func _WinAttach($hWnd, $AttachRange=20, $AttachSpeed=3)
    Local $OldOpt = Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
    Local $WinPosArr = WinGetPos($hWnd)
    Local $WidthHeightArr = WinGetClientSize($hWnd)
    If IsArray($WinPosArr) And IsArray($WidthHeightArr) Then
        Local $xPos = $WinPosArr[0] 
        Local $yPos = $WinPosArr[1]
        Local $Width = $WidthHeightArr[0]
        Local $Height = $WinPosArr[3]
        Local $TrayPosHeight = WinGetPos("classname=Shell_TrayWnd")
        If IsArray($TrayPosHeight) Then $TrayPosHeight = $TrayPosHeight[3]
        If $xPos >= (@DesktopWidth-($Width+$AttachRange)) And ($xPos+$Width-15) < (@DesktopWidth-22) Then
            Local $xDestPos = @DesktopWidth-$Width
            While $xPos < $xDestPos
                Sleep(100/$AttachSpeed)
                WinMove($hWnd, "", $xPos, $yPos)
                $xPos += 5
            WEnd
        EndIf
        If $xPos <= $AttachRange And $xPos > 8 Then
            Local $xDestPos = -2
            While $xPos > $xDestPos
                Sleep(100/$AttachSpeed)
                WinMove($hWnd, "", $xPos, $yPos)
                $xPos -= 5
            WEnd
        EndIf
        
        If $yPos >= (@DesktopHeight-($TrayPosHeight+$Height+$AttachRange)) And _
            ($TrayPosHeight+$yPos+$Height-15) < (@DesktopHeight-22) Then
            Local $yDestPos = @DesktopHeight-$Height-$TrayPosHeight+4
            While $yPos < $yDestPos
                Sleep(100/$AttachSpeed)
                WinMove($hWnd, "", $xPos, $yPos)
                $yPos += 5
            WEnd
        EndIf
        If $yPos <= $AttachRange And $yPos > 8 Then
            Local $yDestPos = -2
            While $yPos > $yDestPos
                Sleep(100/$AttachSpeed)
                WinMove($hWnd, "", $xPos, $yPos)
                $yPos -= 5
            WEnd
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", $OldOpt)
EndFunc

Very nice but... It doesn't attach to other GUI's if you could send a parameter that was just an array with all of the other gui's it should be magnetic to that would make it better...

kinda like...

$array[0] = 2 ; I have two other gui's that it should attach too
$array[1] = $Hwnd1
$array[2] = $HWnd2
_WinAttach( $Hwnd3, 20, 3, $array )

thus making hwnd3 'magnetic' or 'sticky' to hwnd1 & hwnd2....
