Why won't my scroll bars work?

6 posts in this topic

I'm trying to create a child window inside a parent window -- both with scroll bars. The scroll bars get created properly, but they won't scroll. In this code example, I simply want to scroll the parent window to be able to view all parts of the child window. The minimize and maximize buttons work fine. Is there something wrong with the way the scroll bars are defined? Or is another step required to activate them?

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 AutoIt Version: 3.2.8.1
 Author:         qwert

 Script Function:
    Create Parent and Child Windows, both with Scroll Bars.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#include <GuiConstants.au3>
; Script Start 
$Parent = GUICreate("Parent", 400, 200, 200, 200, BitOR($WS_VSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Parent)
$Child = GuiCreate("Child", 600, 100, 0, 0, BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_VSCROLL, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX), -1, $Parent)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Child)
MsgBox(64, "Finished", "Test, Then Click to Close!")
Exit

Thanks for any help. (As you can probably tell, I'm new at this.)

Hello! I`m hope, what understand you correct. :P

Example:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$Parent = GUICreate("Parent", 300, 200)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child", 10, 10, 50, 25)

$Child = GUICreate("Child", 200, 100, -1, -1, Default, Default, $Parent)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Parent)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Select
    Case $msg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE And $msg[1] = $Parent
        Exit
    Case $msg[0] = $button
        GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $Parent)
        GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Child)
    Case $msg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE And $msg[1] = $Child
        GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $Parent)
        GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $Child)
    EndSelect
WEnd

Sorry, but your example has no scroll bars at all. My question is only about scroll bars:

Is there something wrong with the way the scroll bars are defined? Or is another step required to activate them?

Can anyone tell me what the problem is with MY code example?

I don't know what the problem is, but it has nothing to do with the child window. Removing the child still leaves the parent GUI scroll bars not working:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
; Script Start
$Parent = GUICreate("Parent", 400, 200, 200, 200, BitOR($WS_VSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX))
GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 500, 300)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Parent)
;$Child = GUICreate("Child", 600, 100, 0, 0, BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_VSCROLL, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX), -1, $Parent)
;GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Child)

Do
    Sleep(20)
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

:P

Thanks for the references. I had looked at them previously and found them too much for me to cope with at this point (as a novice) -- which is why I worked up my simple example.

Is there no way to add a step or two to what I have to make it work? Or are scroll bars considered just plain complicated?
