GUI child window problem

Recommended Posts

DeFirence

Hi all,

I have created a child window in my main gui, but i cant get it to move when i move the main gui because it is a $WS_POPUP window without a frame and (from AutoIt3 Docs)

$WS_CHILD 0x40000000 Creates a child window. A window with this style cannot have a menu bar. This style cannot be used with the WS_POPUP style.

I made a little script that moves the child to respective coordinates, but it only moves when u put the window down, so it looks kak...

How can i get my child popup window to move with the parent, Here is my code:

#include <GUIConstants.au3> 

$title      = "Title"                           ;- Main GUI Title
$gui        = GUICreate($title, 620, 500, -1, -1)               ;- Main GUI Window
$close      = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 550, 465, 59, 25)            ;- Close Button
$Pos = WinGetPos($gui)
GUISetState()

$infofield  = GUICreate("infofield", 425, 440, 203, 175, BitOR($WS_POPUP,$WS_VSCROLL), -1, $gui)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    Case $msg = $close
        ExitLoop
    EndSelect
    
    ;my cheap way to do what i need
    $Pos1 = WinGetPos($gui)
    If $Pos1[0]*$Pos1[1] <> $Pos[0]*$Pos[1] Then
        $Pos = WinGetPos($gui)
        WinMove($infofield,"",$Pos[0]+3,$Pos[1]+72)
    EndIf
    
WEnd

In the doc file (the manual) there is an example of "window docking" in _GUICtrlListViewCopyItems() (<--- look for that)

Try this (MDI imitation :)):

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$title    = "Title"       ;- Main GUI Title
$gui        = GUICreate($title, 620, 500, -1, -1)            ;- Main GUI Window
$close    = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 550, 465, 59, 25)      ;- Close Button
$Pos = WinGetPos($gui)

$infofield  = GUICreate("infofield", 425, 440, 0, 30, BitOR($WS_POPUP,$WS_VSCROLL), -1, $gui)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $gui)
DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetParent", "hwnd", $infofield, "hwnd", $gui)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $infofield)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    Case $msg = $close
        ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd

I only modified the example of DeFirence, so now it's behaive like he wanted - when you drag the main (host) gui the child gui is moved with it, even if you still hold down the mose button on draging the parent.

oh yeah which is awesome! I was just saying on my machine it places the child win inside the parent win. I actually am attempting to do something similar to this, but the SetParent function results in the child win moving into the parent win... at least on my machine.
