GUICtrlCreateIcon help

20 posts in this topic

is it possible to get the height + width of the picture, then make the height and width of the icon using GUICtrlCreateIcon change accordingly?

CODE
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <StaticConstants.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 633, 447, 193, 125)

$Pic1 = GUICtrlCreateIcon("3DX.dll", 1, 128, 32, @IconHeight, @IconWidth, BitOR($SS_NOTIFY,$WS_GROUP,$WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

$i =0

While 1

sleep(1000)

GUICtrlSetImage($Pic1, "3DX.dll",$i)

$i+=1

if $i = 12 then Exit

WEnd

btw, yes, I know @IconHeight, @IconWidth dont exist, but just as an example of what I am looking for...

Icons have standard sizes. The default for GuiCtrlCreateIcon() is 32x32. What size do you want?

Weird, non-standard sizes. What size would you prefer?

$Ico = GUICtrlCreateIcon("File.ico", -1, 240, 240)

GUICtrlSetImage($File2.ico, -1)

so then there is no way to change the picture size according to the size of the photo?

Re-create your icons all the same size.

as GEO stated icons "generally" have standard sizes

seems to that you are mixing "icons" and "pics" (bmp, jpg, etc)

???

I think what he did was take some images and simply use an app to convert them to icons with no regard for size.

If you wanna to know the normal size of the picture so you can add it normally to your GUI,

Open MSPaint --->Picture--->Propeties---> Height and Weight sizes will be there...

@All Please read the thread. This is about icons. Icons can ( and should ) contain more than one image of varying sizes.

He needs to create the icons so that they all have the same size for what he is trying to do. And the size he chooses doesn't really matter within reason. I think Vista can handle up to 256x256 but I'm not positive. It may even be higher. For XP, I don't know the size limit.

GEOSoft: I dont think he wants to have the icons all at the same size.

He wants to get the width an height of the icons, and change the size of GuictrlcreateIcon to the width and height of the file.

But icons arent images. Maybe you can rename the name of the icons to their size: "240x240.ico" and read the size from there???

That might work.

I still think having the icons all the same size is better. That doesn't mean that the image for the Icon has to use all of the space that's available. Remember that icons usually have a transparent background. If he created for example all of his Icons at 300x300 then centered the image from the current 240x240 icon in that, the 240x240 would still apear that size but it would be in a 300x300 container. See what I'm saying? There is one that is outside the 300 range but it's so close that I'm sure it could be resized to fit.

From his code example it would seem to me that he's trying to create some kind of viewer for looking at icons in a dll file. That could be where the problem of not knowing the icon sizes stems from. I imagine there must be some way of examining icon libraries for the formats their icons are in, I know that Microangelo (an icon editing suite) comes with an application specially for viewing libraries and their icons within, I wouldn't know where to start though, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's not something the WinAPI covers.

I am still trying to inquire about this problem, any takers? :) lol
