Link 2 GUI window

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

At the beginning, I made only one Gui window will all my stuff in it. After a while, I realised that it would be better to split my gui window into two little one. While doing this, I encountered alot of errors.

First of all, I want to know how to link two guis windows as one. Even if there's two windows open I want that in the taskbar, it appear only at once. Those windows have to be link so if I minimize one, it will minimise the other.

Using two windows, I got alot of errors with my variables.

Here's my first script (only 1 GUI window):

#include <GuiConstants.au3>


GuiCreate("First GUI", 100, 105,50, -1,$WS_CAPTION)

$Image_0 = GuiCtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp", 50, 50, 40, 40)
$Image_1 = GuiCtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp", 10, 50, 40, 40)

$Button_1 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("", 23, 10, 35, 35, $BS_BITMAP)
GUICtrlSetImage($Button_1, @ScriptDir & "\Images\FirstPic.bmp")

Guisetstate()

$File1 = @ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp"

While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    
    Case $msg = $Button_1
    $File1 = @ScriptDir & @ScriptDir & "\Images\FirstPic.bmp"
    
    Case $msg = $Image_0
    GuiCtrlSetImage($Image_0, $File1)
    
    Case $msg = $Image_1
    GuiCtrlSetImage($Image_1, $File1)

            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_SECONDARYDOWN
            $ControlID = GUIGetCursorInfo()
            
            ;Set the square blank on right click
            For $a = 0 to 1
                
                If $ControlID[4] = Eval('Image_' & $a) Then
                    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlID[4], @ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp")
                Else
                EndIf
            Next

    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit

GuiCreate("First GUI", 100, 105,50, -1,$WS_CAPTION)

$Image_0 = GuiCtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp", 50, 50, 40, 40)
$Image_1 = GuiCtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp", 10, 50, 40, 40)

GuiSetstate()
GuiCreate("Second GUI", 100, 105,800, -1,$WS_SYSMENU)

$Button_1 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("", 23, 30, 35, 35, $BS_BITMAP)
GUICtrlSetImage($Button_1, @ScriptDir & "\Images\FirstPic.bmp")

Guisetstate()

$File1 = @ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp"

While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    
    Case $msg = $Button_1
    $File1 = @ScriptDir & "\Images\FirstPic.bmp"
    
    Case $msg = $Image_0
    GuiCtrlSetImage($Image_0, $File1)
    
    Case $msg = $Image_1
    GuiCtrlSetImage($Image_1, $File1)

            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_SECONDARYDOWN
            $ControlID = GUIGetCursorInfo()
            
            ;Set the square blank on right click
            For $a = 0 to 1
                
                If $ControlID[4] = Eval('Image_' & $a) Then
                    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlID[4], @ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp")
                Else
                EndIf
            Next

    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit

The right click case that work in one window give me an error message when my main window is splitted in 2 :shocked:

I hope I provided enough information to help me.

Thanks !

Hi,

how to link two guis windows as one

Try to make the second one as a child window...

.....
;Get window handel that returned by GuiCreate (into $Parent variable)...
$Parent = GuiCreate("First GUI", 100, 105,50, -1,$WS_CAPTION)

$Image_0 = GuiCtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp", 50, 50, 40, 40)
$Image_1 = GuiCtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\Images\blank.bmp", 10, 50, 40, 40)

GuiSetstate()
GuiCreate("", 100, 105,800, -1,$WS_SYSMENU,-1, $Parent) ;Using the window handel ($Parent) to set this window as a child window.

Thanks alot MsCreator, that worked! :shocked:

The only problem is that if I select one of the two windows, it deselect the other one ( I mean the other one stop being active). How can both windows be alway active and always in front (even if you open something, the windows will alway stay on the screen and never diseapear) ?

How can both windows be alway active

This is impossible (i think :shocked: ), just one window can be active at the same time.

and always in front

If you mean always on top, then just use the $WS_EX_TOPMOST exStyle...

...
GuiCreate("First GUI", 100, 105,50, -1,$WS_CAPTION, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
....

Glad to help :(

Well if they cannot be "active" at the same time, can they only "look" both active?

When I select one of the two windows, it unselect the other one and the color of the title bar change:

How can I make both windows keep the same title bar's color at any time?

I think that happens because the one with dark blue with active. I don't think it's possible to make is so they both stay dark blue...

One thing that I've done was make my own backgrounds which don't change color when inactive. The only problem with this is that on the windows tray (if that's what you call) it still will make the active window look as if it's pushed and the inactive look unpushed.

There's no way to set it like if it was only one window splitted in 2? That way, when I will select one it will select the other for sure.

You can make a custom title, then bouth windows will look the same :shocked:

Somthing likle this:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

;Parent windoe
$Parent = GUICreate("Win1", 200, 200, 300, -1, $WS_POPUPWINDOW, $WS_EX_STATICEDGE+$WS_EX_TOPMOST)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("My Title 1", 13, 0, 170, 15, $ES_CENTER, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x0505E0)

$CloseButton1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("X", 182, 0, 15, 15)

;Child Window
$Child = GUICreate("Win2", 200, 200, 500, -1, $WS_POPUPWINDOW, $WS_EX_STATICEDGE+$WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Parent)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("My Title 2", 13, 0, 170, 15, $ES_CENTER, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x0505E0)

$CloseButton2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("X", 182, 0, 15, 15)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Parent)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Child)

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case -3, $CloseButton1, $CloseButton2
            Exit
        Case Else
            ;;;
    EndSwitch
WEnd
