GUICaret UDF

Recommended Posts

My third UDF this week. I hope you like it as much as the other ones.

A caret can have multiple shapes, but does the same thing: showing you where the next next will be insterted.

Posted Image

Functions:

Func _Caret_Create($hWnd, $hBitmap=0, $iWidth=1, $iHeight=16)
 Func _Caret_Show($hWnd)
 Func _Caret_SetPos($iX, $iY)
 Func _Caret_SetBlinkTime($iTime); WARNING! Do not use this function! This is the same as setting the blink time in the Control Panel. Other applications will use this time too.
 Func _Caret_GetBlinkTime()
 Func _Caret_Hide($hWnd)
 Func _Caret_Destroy()
 Func _Caret_GetPos()

MSDN says that you should destroy the control everytime the window looses focus, and create it again when the focus is back.

I haven't got any error when I didn't, but if I were you I should do it anyway.

Example:

#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>
 #include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
 #include <GuiCaret.au3>
 #include <WinAPI.au3>
 #include <Constants.au3>
 
 $GUI = GUICreate("bye",700,500)
     
     GUICtrlCreateLabel("This is a text which can't be edited",200,102,163)
     GUICtrlCreateLabel("(Altough it might looks like it.)",200,118,200)
     
     _Caret_Create($GUI); The blinking thing
     _Caret_SetPos(364, 100)
     _Caret_Show($GUI)
     
 GUISetState()
 
; >> These two functions are for registering messages. If you dont get these functions, just use GUIRegisterMsg()
 $sCallback = DllCallbackRegister("CallbackFunc","int","hwnd;uint;wparam;lparam")
 $MsgProc = _WinAPI_SetWindowLong(WinGetHandle($GUI),$GWL_WNDPROC,DllCallBackGetPtr($sCallback))
; <<
 
 
 While 1
     If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
 WEnd
 
 
 Func CallbackFunc($hWnd,$iMsg,$wParam,$lParam)
     
     Switch $hWnd
         Case $GUI
             
             Switch $iMsg
                 
                 Case $WM_KILLFOCUS
                     
                     _Caret_Destroy(); MSDN says that I should destroy it when the focus is lost...
                     
                 Case $WM_SETFOCUS
                     
                     _Caret_Create($hWnd); ... and create it again when the focus is set. Altough I havent seen any errors when I didn't destroyed it.
                     _Caret_SetPos(200, 100)
                     _Caret_Show($hWnd)
                     
             EndSwitch
             
             Return _WinAPI_CallWindowProc($MsgProc,$hWnd,$iMsg,$wParam,$lParam)
             
     EndSwitch
     
 EndFunc

That's it, thanks ;)

And how about bitmaps, can you please show an example of bitmap usage?
