adjust maximize height

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I made a script with a GUI that has the top most attribute enabled. So When I start the program, and I start internet explorer for example, then the gui will always be on top, thats fine. But When you maximize the IE window, a part of the windows will dissapear behind the GUI of my program, So how to maximize till the beginning of the GUI.

this is the GUI:

$gui_time = GUICreate("Internet Café 2.0", @DesktopWidth, 35, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW & $WS_EX_TOPMOST)  ; GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $gui_time)       ; will display an empty dialog box

So the window must be kept under the GUI when maximized. thanks! I supplied the code so you can see the height and the width of the GUI.

Instead of maximizing use

WinMove("Internet Explorer","",0,36,@DeskTopWidth,@DeskTopHeight - 36);Not sure what the title is for IE.

I'll try to explain better. The GUI has the topmost attribute, so it will be on top of all windows. What I want is that, when any window is maximized, it will stay under the GUI, so not only IE. Thanks!

This might help but I haven't looked at it for a while

Const $SPI_SETWORKAREA = 47,$SPI_GETWORKAREA = 48
Const $SPIF_SENDCHANGE = 11


$newWid = @DesktopWidth - 500
$newHt = @DesktopHeight

$DtopRect = DllStructCreate("int[4]")
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,0,1);top
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,0,2);left
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,$newWid,3);bottom
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,$newHt,4);right
$PRect = DllStructGetPtr($DtopRect)

$DNowRect = DllStructCreate("int[4]")
$PNowRect = DllStructGetPtr($DNowRect)

$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_SETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PRect,"int",$SPIF_SENDCHANGE)

MsgBox(0,"somthing might have changed on your desktop","better have a look")

$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_GETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PNowRect,"int",0)
MsgBox(0,'work area is now',DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,1) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,2) & _
             ' x ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,3) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,4));right
DllStructSetData($DtopRect,1,@DesktopWidth,3);we'll put the working area back to how it was
$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_SETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PRect,"int",$SPIF_SENDCHANGE)
$res = DllCall("user32.dll","int","SystemParametersInfo","int",$SPI_GETWORKAREA,"int",0,"ptr",$PNowRect,"int",0)
MsgBox(0,'work area is now',DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,1) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,2) & _
             ' x ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,3) & ', ' & DllStructGetData($DNowRect,1,4));right
