Restore Icon Positions


Recommended Posts

Hi,

After a while, ive been learning here in the forums from others, i thought i share a bit of (to me) useful stuff

to give a bit back what i received.

With this little script you can save your Icon Positions on the Desktop and in Windows.

The positions are written in inis in a folder created in the ScriptDir.

Auto Arrange has to be turned off.

Fixed: Restoring Icons now works (thx paulchen)

I used and modified the Save/Restore Functions in smstroble's Unlimited Desktop Script.

The Window Selection GUI is originally from Ozu.

It looks like this: Posted Image

#include <A3LListView.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <File.au3>

$guiwindow = GUICreate("Window Selection", 350, 150)
$font = "Arial Bold"

$LoadB = GUICtrlCreateButton(" Load ", 5, 123)
$SaveB = GUICtrlCreateButton(" Save ", 45, 123)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8.5, 400, -1, $font)
$refreshbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Refresh", 100, 123, 60, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8.5, 400, -1, $font)
$nListview = GUICtrlCreateListView(" Title|State ", 0, 0, 350, 120)
GUICtrlSendMsg($nListview, $LVM_SETEXTENDEDLISTVIEWSTYLE, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES)
GUICtrlSendMsg($nListview, $LVM_SETEXTENDEDLISTVIEWSTYLE, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT)

RefreshWidth()
Func RefreshWidth()
    _GUICtrlListViewSetColumnWidth($nListview,1,$LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER)
    _GUICtrlListViewSetColumnWidth($nListview,1,_GUICtrlListViewGetColumnWidth ($nListview,1)-2)
EndFunc

the Restore function was not complete.

here a updated version. Its work on Vista.

Thx paulchen, before i posted this, i modified the the Save Function to add "(Desktop)" behind "Program Manager". In the hurry forgot to add it to the Restore Function too.

My bad, that i didnt tested it :)

I fixed it in the first post.

You are using a old program with a newer version of autoit. Open the helpfile and change those udfs to the correct names. 

..and please do not PM me to let me know you replied as the forum already does that!
