Resizing Controls

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

i've been scripting a lot with GUIs lately and i am wondering if there is a way to make controls dragable/resizable

I'm looking to build onto this example:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <misc.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("drag input")
$ip = GUICtrlCreateInput("drag me", 20, 20, 120, 22)
GUISetState()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
            $nc = GUIGetCursorInfo()
            If $nc[4] = $ip Then
                $mp = MouseGetPos()
                $cp = ControlGetPos("drag input", "", $ip)
                $max = WinGetClientSize($gui)
                While _IsPressed(1)
                    $nm = MouseGetPos()
                    $x = $cp[0] - $mp[0] + $nm[0]
                    $y = $cp[1] - $mp[1] + $nm[1]
                    Select
                        Case $y < 0
                            $y = 0
                        Case $y > $max[1]-$cp[3]
                            $y = $max[1]-$cp[3]
                    EndSelect
                    Select
                        Case $x < 0
                            $x = 0
                        Case $x > $max[0]-$cp[2]
                            $x = $max[0]-$cp[2]
                    EndSelect
                    ControlMove("drag input", "", $ip, $x,$y)
                    Sleep(10)
                WEnd
                
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I want to be able to have the input box resizable just like windows are (from the corner)

If anyone has any ideas that would be much appreciated :P

One easy way is to add the style $WS_SIZEBOX

$ip = GUICtrlCreateInput("drag me", 20, 20, 120, 22,$WS_SIZEBOX)

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

Is it really that easy?

wow...

i should have looked through the Styles :P

Thanks Martin!

Edit:

Any way to have that work on labels and all other types of controls?

i have tested it on input button and label

and label doesn't work
