Checking if a control has been resized

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I want to check if a $WS_SIZEBOX control has been dragged to a new size. Is there a better way than repeatedly calling ControlGetPos() from a loop? I'm using OnEvent Mode.

Thanks!

philw,

You could register the WM_SIZE message:

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

Global $fResized = False

; When window is resized, run this function
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, "MY_WM_SIZE")

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX)

$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 100, 100)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    ; Show if resized
    If $fResized = True Then
        GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, "Resized")
        $fResized = False
        ; Clear the label every 2 secs
        AdlibRegister("Wipe", 2000)     ; If you run Beta
        ;AdlibEnable("Wipe", 2000)      ; If you run 3.3.0.0
    EndIf

WEnd

Func MY_WM_SIZE($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    #forceref $Msg, $wParam, $lParam
    If $Hwnd = WinGetHandle($hGUI) Then $fResized = True
    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc

Func Wipe()
    GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, "")
        AdlibUnRegister("Wipe")     ; If you run Beta
        ;AdlibDisable()             ; If you run 3.3.0.0
EndFunc

The label is cleared 2 secs after the resizing - if you resize too frequently you can get out of synch. :) But it will give you the idea.

Thanks Melba23, but doesn't that method only work if the window is resized? I want to check if a control within the window (for example an edit control) is resized. I suppose I could set up a function which is called on mousedown or mouseup, and then check if the control is still the same size... but this seems a bit over the top.

philw,

I assumed that as a control is just another window, the same message would be sent - but it seems not. Sorry about that - I will have another think.

Edit:

Best I can do - there does not appear to be a control resize message:

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

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 100, 100)

$hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 200, 200, 200, $WS_SIZEBOX)

GUISetState()

$aStartSize = ControlGetPos($hGUI, "", $hEdit)

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    $aSize = ControlGetPos($hGUI, "", $hEdit)
    If $aSize[2] <> $aStartSize[2] Or $aSize[3] <> $aStartSize[3] Then
        $aStartSize[2] = $aSize[2]
        $aStartSize[3] = $aSize[3]
        GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, "Resized")
        AdlibRegister("Wipe", 2000)
    EndIf

WEnd

Func Wipe()
    GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, "")
        AdlibUnRegister("Wipe")
EndFunc

But no doubt someone out there will come along with a better solution in a while :)

Thanks for your help on this one! I thought it might be necessary to improvise. It's odd that there seems to be no control resize message, but such is life!
