Can you make a GUI bigger at runtime?

Recommended Posts

If you can, how?

EDIT: I don't mean by the user grabbing the edge and resizing it...

You were so specific with your question, how could I not answer it:
$iW = Random(100, 600, 1)
$iH = Random(100, 600, 1)
GUICreate("some gui", $iW, $iH)
GUISetState()
While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
WEnd

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I was hoping for something at runtime... I'm using a toolbar and I'm going to extend it a little bit if the user does a certain thing so I was wondering if that was possible.

That was at runtime.

Just make the coords for width and height global, and if they do something, then change them within the function, then when you start the GUI it would be those coords... otherwise, you're over my head on understanding what you want.

Edit:

If you mean during:

Look at:

Opt("GUIResizeMode", 802)

That way you can resize the gui anytime during runtime.

WinMove($gui, $x, $y, $width, $height, ).

Just leave the x,y whatever they already were.

Oh yeah... Along with GUIResizeMode I forgot to tell you to use WinMove()!!

Alright, that was what I was looking for.

Sorry, now that I see how you were looking at it I guess it wasn't as clear as I thought it was :)

No worries... I do suggest the resize mode though, you won't like how your controls turn out if you don't use it.

Does anybody have an example of how to use resize mode without the user stretching the GUI?

I'm making a different program where the GUI will be expanding and shrinking and realized quite quickly (as SmOke_N said) that WinMove is not working how I want it to.

Try this:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIResizeMode", $GUI_DOCKALL)

$Gui = GuiCreate("Test", 300, 200)

$Expand_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Expand", 20, 80, 80)

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Some Button", 20, 240, 80)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Other Button", 120, 240, 80)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 20, 200, 200, 20)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case -3
            Exit
        Case $Expand_Button
            Local $Height, $ButtonText
            $GuiPos = WinGetPos($Gui)
            If $GuiPos[3] < 320 Then
                $Height = 320
                $ButtonText = "Hide"
            Else
                $Height = 225
                $ButtonText = "Expand"
            EndIf
            GUICtrlSetData($Expand_Button, $ButtonText)
            WinMove($Gui, "", $GuiPos[0], $GuiPos[1], $GuiPos[2], $Height)
    EndSwitch
WEnd
