GuiCreate - Help with parent/child behavior

3 posts in this topic

When I set $Win1 as the parent for the MsgBox I am unable to interact with $Win1 while the MsgBox is open.

How can I make Win2 behave like the MsgBox?

I've tried numerous style/extended style cobinations and had no luck.

But no matter what I do I'm still able to interact with $Win1.

Thanks,

Kenny

Here's some sample code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$Win1 = GUICreate("Win1", 400, 200)
$Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 0, 0, 100, 25)
$Btn1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open Win2", 200, 100, 100, 25)
$Win2 = GUICreate("Win2", 100, 100, -1, -1, -1, -1, $Win1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Win1)

MsgBox(0,"","Child", 0, $Win1)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    $nMsgWindows = $nMsg[1]
    $nMsg = $nMsg[0]
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            If $nMsgWindows = $Win1 Then Exit
            If $nMsgWindows = $Win2 Then GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $Win2)
        Case $Exit
            Exit
        Case $Btn1
            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Win2)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

ah ok cool, works fine.

I tried that a while back and whenever I re-enabled the parent it would cause the whole window to flash while being repainted.

I guess it was just a bug with whatever rev I was running at the time.

Thanks,

Kenny
