Resizing a child window based on the parent window size

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am working on my next version of vistumbler and I would like to get my child window to resize when i resize its parent window. right now i can chang it in the GUI...but i would like it to happen automatically.

This is an example gui of what i am talking about

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
Global Const $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT = 0x00010000

$ParentGUI = GUICreate("AForm1", 613, 420,  -1, -1, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))
GUISetBkColor(0xB4B4B4)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Parent Window", 8, 0, 77, 17)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xB4B4B4)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


$ChildGUI = GUICreate("", 400, 200, 0, 30, BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_TABSTOP, $WS_SIZEBOX), $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT, $ParentGUI)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Child Window", 8, 0, 77, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

GUISwitch($ParentGUI)



While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

I would like to expand the child window based on the size of the parent window

GUISetBkColor(0xB4B4B4)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Parent Window", 8, 0, 77, 17)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xB4B4B4)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


$ChildGUI = GUICreate("", 400, 200, 0, 30, BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_TABSTOP, $WS_SIZEBOX), $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT, $ParentGUI)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Child Window", 8, 0, 77, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

GUISwitch($ParentGUI)



While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
    
    $a = WinGetPos($ParentGUI)
    $b = WinGetPos($ChildGUI)
    
    If Round($b[2] / $a[2], 2) * 100 <> 65 Or Round($b[3] / $a[3], 2) * 100 <> 45 Then WinMove($ChildGUI, "", 0, 30, $a[2]*.65, $a[3]*.45) 

WEnd
