Set window style of another program?

6 posts in this topic

Any ideas on how to go about setting the window style of another program?

For example, Say I wanted to set notepad as $WS_POPUP

Any ideas?

This demo (using PaulIA's AU3 Library) shows the STYLE and EXSTYLE values. I leave it as an exercise for the idle to bit-out the various settings (hint: where there's a Get, there's usually a Set):

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <A3LHeader.au3>
#include <A3LListView.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("ListView Edit Lable", 400, 300)
$ListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 10, 10, 380, 240)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line1|data1|more1", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line2|data2|more2", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line3|data3|more3", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line4|data4|more4", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line5|data5|more5", $ListView)
$Btn_Header = GUICtrlCreateButton("Style", 150, 260, 100, 30)
GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Btn_Header
            $sMsg = "Style: " & _API_GetWindowLong ($hGUI, $GWL_STYLE)
            $sMsg &= @CRLF & "ExStyle: " & _API_GetWindowLong($hGUI, $GWL_EXSTYLE)
            MsgBox(64, "Results", $sMsg)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Not sure what PaulIA uses in AU3Lib, but SetWindowLongPtr should be used instead of SetWindowLong. See here for details.

The actual _API_* functions are in A3LWinAPI.au3, and he uses SetWindowLong. It's basically a one-liner DLL call though, so you could rewrite as:

Func _API_SetWindowLongPtr($hWnd, $iIndex, $iValue)
  Local $aResult
  $aResult = DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "SetWindowLongPtr", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $iIndex, "int", $iValue)
  Return $aResult[0]
EndFunc

The only impact of the superseded call is for 64bit Windows, so no impact for most of us.

PaulIA updates his library regularly, so I'll bet it get tweaked soon anyway.

Good to know. I run things off a USB, which AU3Lib doesn't like, so I haven't seen any source.
