Statusbar not covering other controls.

Recommended Posts

Tvern

Hello there.

I have been trying to add a status bar to one of my resizeable GUI's, but I ran into a problem: The status bar is being created with the GUI, but the controls in the GUI are being created and deleted when needed.

Because using the script will quite often delete and create controls I can't easy make the status bar the last created control, which is the only way I managed the get the behaviour I am trying to achieve.

I've made a small example script that clarifies my problem:

#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
$hWnd = GUICreate("This isn't working!", 400, 400, Default, Default, BitOR($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))

$Statusbar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($hWnd)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($Statusbar, "This should hide the label when resized")

GUICtrlCreateLabel("This should go behind the statusbar when the window is resized", 55, 200)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKALL)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, "WM_SIZE")
GUISetState()

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
WEnd

Func WM_SIZE($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
    _GUICtrlStatusBar_Resize($Statusbar)
EndFunc

I hoped to find a "$GUI_TOPMOST" state for GUICtrlSetState(), or something of that nature, but so far with no luck. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

This is one way

#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hWnd = GUICreate("This isn't working!", 400, 400, Default, Default, BitOR($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))
GUISetState()
$Statusbar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($hWnd)

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($Statusbar, "This should hide the label when resized")
$ch = GUICreate("",400,370,0,0,$WS_CHILD,-1,$hWnd)
$lab = GUICtrlCreateLabel("This should go behind the statusbar when the window is resized", 55, 200)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKALL)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, "WM_SIZE")
GUISetState()

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
WEnd

Func WM_SIZE($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
    _GUICtrlStatusBar_Resize($Statusbar)

EndFunc

Thanks Marting, you've earned a cookie.

That's exactly the behavior I'm looking for, although it's gonna be more work to implement then what I as hoping for, so I'm still open for suggestions.

Here is the way for avoiding resizing under min height,

So this way overlapping will not occur.

#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
$hWnd = GUICreate("This isn't working!", 400, 400, Default, Default, BitOR($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))

$Statusbar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($hWnd)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($Statusbar, "This should hide the label when resized")

GUICtrlCreateLabel("This should go behind the statusbar when the window is resized", 55, 200)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKALL)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, "WM_SIZE")
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_GETMINMAXINFO, "MY_WM_GETMINMAXINFO")
GUISetState()

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
WEnd

Func WM_SIZE($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
    _GUICtrlStatusBar_Resize($Statusbar)
EndFunc

Func MY_WM_GETMINMAXINFO($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
 $minmaxinfo = DllStructCreate("int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int;int",$lParam)
 DllStructSetData($minmaxinfo,8,270) ; min Y
 Return 0
EndFunc

Thanks. I'll have a look at that aswell, but I suppose that wouldn't work when using a scrollbar right?
