_DockToScreenSide UDF

Recommended Posts

maqleod

I wrote this function for use in a script I'm writing, but I figured it might be useful for others, so here it is:

;
;_DockToScreenSide
;written by Jared Epstein
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$parent = GUICreate("test",195,175,-1,-1,-1,-1)

GUISetState()
Do
$msg = GUIGetMsg()

_DockToScreenSide("test")


Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
GUIDelete()

Func _DockToScreenSide($hWindow)
    $hPos = WinGetPos($hWindow,"")
        if $hPos[0] + $hPos[2] > @DesktopWidth then
            WinMove($hWindow,"",@DesktopWidth - $hPos[2],$hPos[1])
        endif
        if $hPos[1] + $hPos[3] > @DesktopHeight then
            WinMove($hWindow,"",$hPos[0],@DesktopHeight - $hPos[3])
        endif
        if $hPos[0] < 1 then
            WinMove($hWindow,"",1,$hPos[1])
        endif
        if $hPos[1] < 1 then
            WinMove($hWindow,"",$hPos[0],1)
        endif
EndFunc

I tidied it up a bit:

;_DockToScreenSide
;written by Jared Epstein

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$parent = GUICreate("test", 195, 175, -1, -1, -1, -1)

GUISetState()

Do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    _DockToScreenSide($parent)
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
GUIDelete()

Func _DockToScreenSide($hWindow)
    $hPos = WinGetPos($hWindow, "")
    If $hPos[0] + $hPos[2] > @DesktopWidth Then
        WinMove($hWindow, "", @DesktopWidth - $hPos[2], $hPos[1])
    EndIf
    If $hPos[1] + $hPos[3] > @DesktopHeight Then
        WinMove($hWindow, "", $hPos[0], @DesktopHeight - $hPos[3])
    EndIf
    If $hPos[0] < 1 Then
        WinMove($hWindow, "", 1, $hPos[1])
    EndIf
    If $hPos[1] < 1 Then
        WinMove($hWindow, "", $hPos[0], 1)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_DockToScreenSide

It doesn't work though. As in, nothing happens :rolleyes:

it doesn't work because you are using the window handle in the function instead of the window title.

That shouldn't matter. I also tried it, with the actual Window Title, with no luck :rolleyes:

I suppose it shouldn't, either way, it works on my system, I don't know why it wouldn't for others.

it only works when you let go of the mouse while any portion of the window is off screen.
