Vertical slider question

Recommended Posts


I have a slider for a volume level, I thought I'd have it vertical instead of horizontal.

$volume = GUICtrlCreateSlider(300, 304, 18, 89, $TBS_VERT)

Problem is when the slider is set to VERT, it seems to be upside down, ie, scroll up to 0, down to 100 :whistle: I've tried BitOr $TBS_RIGHT and BitOr $TBS_LEFT which changes the side the slider arrow points, but the 0 level remains at the top, 100 at the bottom and I can't find anything in the styles that looks like it might do it the other way round.

Is there a work around for this?

Or you can just simply formulate a reverse count translation...

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$Gui = GuiCreate("Slider Vert Reverse", 250, 160)
$Slider = GUICtrlCreateSlider(20, 20, 18, 89, $TBS_VERT)
$Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel(100 - GUICtrlRead($Slider), 19, 110, 30, 15)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Gui)

$SliderOld = (100 - GUICtrlRead($Slider))

While 1
    If $SliderOld <> (100 - GUICtrlRead($Slider)) Then 
        GUICtrlSetData($Label, 100 - GUICtrlRead($Slider))
        $SliderOld = (100 - GUICtrlRead($Slider))
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Case $Msg = -3

You did ask for a work around , just keeping your options open :whistle:


Edit: If your setting the limit of the slider to something other then the default 100 eg: 1000

Then use 1000 - GuiCtrlRead($slider).
