Embedded Progressbar

Recommended Posts


I have a progressbar embedded into a statusbar:


$StatusBar1 = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($Form1,-1,"", $SBARS_TOOLTIPS)

Dim $StatusBar1_PartsWidth[3] = [50, 350, 460]

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetParts($StatusBar1, $StatusBar1_PartsWidth)

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($StatusBar1, "* ", 0)

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetTipText($StatusBar1,0,"Pause till next command is sent")

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($StatusBar1, " ", 1)

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetTipText($StatusBar1,1,"Next command to be sent")

$statprogress = GUICtrlCreateProgress(0, 0, -1, -1, $PBS_SMOOTH,4)

$hstatProgress = GUICtrlGetHandle($statprogress)

_GUICtrlStatusBar_EmbedControl ($StatusBar1, 2, $hstatProgress)

GUICtrlSetColor( $statprogress,0x0000FF)

GUICtrlSetTip($statProgress,"Script progress indicator")

Throughout my func I use a lot of call to set data (330msec updates) like:


_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($StatusBar1, Int(($MinTimeBetweenTL1Sends+$TL1SendQuePauseBeforeNextCommand-$timerdifference)/1000)&" sec ", 0)

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($StatusBar1, $TL1SendQue [1] [1]&" ", 1)

GUICtrlSetColor( $statprogress,0x0000FF)

GUICtrlSetTip($statProgress,"Script progress indicator")

GUICtrlSetData($statprogress, 0)

Sooner or later the progressbar size (w/o any [intentional] GUI resizing event) is changed: the progressbar occupies the complete statusbar area.

I have no idea, what triggers this change, subsequently I tried to use


_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetParts($StatusBar1, $StatusBar1_PartsWidth)

_GUICtrlStatusBar_Resize($StatusBar1) ;just to check if this repairs the oversized progress bar

in order to reset the size, but it does not help. I tried as well with ControlMove to reseat the progressbar, but then the progressbar is gone completley.

Anyone who suffered the same problem and has an idea?

How to resize such embedded Progressbar (with ControlGetPos I can detect the change, so a subsequent Resize might be helpful)
