Toolbar Buttons tips

Recommended Posts

How can i set tips for toolbar buttons? I know difficult variant with GuiRegisterMsg() from help-file, but can exist easy way for this task?

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <GuiToolbar.au3>
#include <GuiImageList.au3>
#include <GuiToolTip.au3>

Dim Enum $id1 = 1000, $id2

$hGUI = GUICreate("Toolbar", 400, 300)
$hToolbar = _GUICtrlToolbar_Create($hGUI, $BTNS_BUTTON+$BTNS_SHOWTEXT+$TBSTYLE_LIST+$TBN_GETINFOTIP+$TBSTYLE_WRAPABLE, $TBSTYLE_EX_DRAWDDARROWS)

$hImage = _GUIImageList_Create(16, 16, 5, 3)

$hToolTip = _GUIToolTip_Create($hToolbar, $TTS_ALWAYSTIP)
_GUICtrlToolbar_SetToolTips($hToolbar, $hToolTip)

_GUIImageList_AddIcon($hImage, @AutoItExe, 0)
_GUIImageList_AddIcon($hImage, @AutoItExe, 1)

_GUICtrlToolbar_SetImageList($hToolbar, $hImage)

$String1 = _GUICtrlToolbar_AddString($hToolbar, "Autoit")
$String2 = _GUICtrlToolbar_AddString($hToolbar, "Close")

_GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton($hToolBar, $id1, 0, $String1)

_GUICtrlToolbar_AddButtonSep($hToolBar, 6)
_GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton($hToolBar, $id2, 1, $String2)

 _GUICtrlToolbar_SetStyleFlat($hToolBar, True)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Thank you!

yw, you might want to put a switch/select in there for the tooltip handle, so it only checks when the tooltip handle matches the handle from lParam.

heres a toolbar example based on helpfile scripts with tooltip and toolbar event handling

and a button state check.*

* you may need to disable certain buttons on the toolbar

when your script is running certain functions, just as menu items are 'greyed out'

when those functions are not available

has handle check for both toolbar and tooltips

and example of enable / disable button state

Rover, great example, but is possible to call funcion when push up mouse button (like on default button) ?!

good timing n3nE

was just checking new posts

to answer your question,

you can use $TBN_ENDDRAG to indicate a mouse button up release.

I'll take this opportunity to explain my using $TBN_BEGINDRAG instead of $NM_LDOWN

in my above example.

the button press messages for the toolbar you can use are

$TBN_BEGINDRAG - left mouse down

$TBN_ENDDRAG - left mouse up

$NM_LDOWN - left mouse down

I chose $TBN_BEGINDRAG because of its fast response time.

$NM_LDOWN is much slower.

its an incorrect usage, but if you don't use moveable

toolbar buttons then you can use that message.

the downside is that the right click also works without depressing the button,

so I use a check with _IsPressed("01") (Left Mouse Button) to prevent right mouse clicks.

say for example a soundboard with preset sounds on a toolbar.

using $TBN_BEGINDRAG the response is much faster without the lag of $NM_LDOWN

that's the reason why I used short beeps sounds, for button clicks, they demonstrate quite nicely the difference.

Case $TBN_BEGINDRAG ; Take your pick: $TBN_BEGINDRAG or $NM_LDOWN

; $TBN_BEGINDRAG - both right and left click work, but faster response.*

; $NM_LDOWN - slower responsiveness, not suitable for functions requiring fast repeat (eg. sound effects)

; clicks missed if interval between clicks is too short

; * could use _IsPressed("01") (Left Mouse Button) with If or Switch statement combined with $TBN_BEGINDRAG

Don't forget $NM_CLICK, if you want to use Mouse UP :)

    If DllStructGetData($NMMOUSE, 1) = $hToolbar Then
        If DllStructGetData($NMMOUSE, 3) = $NM_CLICK Then
    ; Here you can add the commands :) I made an extra Func, which is called with a Dummy -> This Func doens't wait;)
            Local $ClickedButtonID = DllStructGetData($NMMOUSE, "dwItemSpec")

thanks for pointing that out ProgAndy

I didn't review all the toolbar messages

I have been using the dummy control however because of the necessity

of returning quickly from the message handler and not having blocking functions in there.

you can set the width of the separator, the default is 6 pixels

_GUICtrlToolbar_AddButtonSep($hToolbar, 1)

is that what you mean?

Ok, I think I know what you mean

you want something else in between 2 toolbar buttons?

you will probably have to use rebars for that with two separate toolbars

perhaps with setmetrics

looks like some of this depends on the visual style in use

ok late on the post, I see your second image, that's a dropdown button

Thank you for answers ;D

if you want an example of using dropdown menu buttons look at this post.

I know I updated the _GetToolbarButtonScreenPos function but that was a while back and I don't remember what i changed in it,

I'll review the code and post here if its relevant.

Toolbar example, How To?
