adjusting window to desktop size with taskbar [resolved]

colleagues:

i'm using

_GETdesktopSize

to get the dimensions of a desktop and create/resize a window to fit in the desktop, shrinking the window depending on the size of the windows taskbar.
however, my window extends below the taskbar

i know there is a workaround for this that the editor uses (but the mainwindow plugit does not), since the editor behaves correctly (it always resizes to adjust to the present taskbar size, no matter how large, small, or hidden), but don't quite know where to look

Re: adjusting window to desktop size with taskbar [resolved]

Is that acceptable for you ?

_SHOWwindow window WINDOW_MAXIMIZED;

Re: adjusting window to desktop size with taskbar [resolved]

thx iri, i tried it but the window still ignores the taskbar size

here is how i create window:

crEdMainWindow _channel nil 0 0 sw sh WN_HIDDEN strcatn "MediaOctopus3d Player : "::projname::nil

and when so3 engine is done initializing, I have tried:

fun destroy_initializer()=
let _GETdesktopSize -> [sw sh] in
(
//code
	_SIZEwindowEx mainWindow.EDW_win sw sh 0 0;
	_SHOWwindow mainWindow.EDW_win  WINDOW_MAXIMIZED;
);
0;;

and the window still ignores the taskbar

Re: adjusting window to desktop size with taskbar [resolved]

there a function called
let _GETWorkingAreaSize -> [sw sh] in

it gives the size of the working area on several monitors and without the taskbar size.

Re: adjusting window to desktop size with taskbar [resolved]

Your taskbar is hidden and reappears when the mouse is over it ?

Re: adjusting window to desktop size with taskbar [resolved]

hmm when you create the window it do not take the size of the title bar in account.
you can use this http://www.scolring.org/files/doc_html/ … dowex.html with the size returned by _GETWorkingAreaSize

Re: adjusting window to desktop size with taskbar [resolved]

i've only tested this on my laptop (not tablet)...it seems like flags do alot of interaction that determine the final size of the window...and yes arkeon _SIZEwindowEx is what helped things to work. WN_TOPMOST prevents proper sizing. If there is a container in the window CO_MAXIMIZED also causes misbehavior. WN_NOBORDER and WN_NOCAPTION also causes changes in size.

in my app i manged to make an edmainwindow and regular scol window fit into the dekstop properly. for some reason  _GETWorkingAreaSize   returns more of a yvalue than _GETdesktopSize .

this is what worked with an edmainwindow  (excerpts from longer function)

  let _GETdesktopSize -> [sw sh]	in
(
//code
    set mainWindow = setEdWindowIcon (crEdMainWindow _channel nil 0 0 sw sh WN_HIDDEN|WN_NORMAL strcatn "MediaOctopus3d Player : "::projname::nil) sWinPlayerMainIcon;
//code..

this is what worked with a regular scol window with an object container in it..this looks messy but once i'm sure things are working i'll clean things up

fun initOs3dPlayer(file, projname, pw ,ph, fullscreen)=
  	let _GETdesktopSize -> [dtw dth] in
  	let _GETWorkingAreaSize -> [ssw ssh] in
   //create 3d engine initilizingwindow as hidden, centered on screen...THIS CODE SIZES CORRECTLY TO DESKTOP TAKING INTO ACCOUNT TASKBAR THIS SHOULD BE DEFAULT DESKTOP MODE AS OPPOSED TO FULLSCREEN MODE, WHICH WILL TAKE UP WHOLE SCREEN
       let _CRwindow _channel nil 0 0  dtw dth WN_NORMAL|WINDOW_HIDDEN "Initializing Window" -> octo3dinitializing_window in
//create 3d engine initilizingw container, child of octo3dinitializing_window
      let _CRcontainerFromObjWin _channel octo3dinitializing_window 0 0 dtw dth CO_MAXIMIZE|CO_CHILDINSIDE 0x000000 "3dinitializingcontainer" -> initializing_conatiner in 
 	//create an initializing font
      let _CRfont _channel 24 0 0 "Lucida Console" -> initializingfont in 
     //create initializing image 
     let G2DloadAlphaBmp _channel strcat APPBASEDIR "mediaoctopus3dplayer/monstersplash.png" -> initializing_image in
    //put image in container
    let _CRcompBitmap _channel  initializing_conatiner nil [0 0] OBJ_ENABLE OBJ_CONTAINER_MOVE|OBJ_CONTAINER_KEYUP|OBJ_CONTAINER_KEYDOWN|OBJ_CONTAINER_MOUSEWHEEL|OBJ_CONTAINER_DBLCLICK  initializing_image 0 0 dtw dth -> initializing_combitmap in
   //create initializing comptext
   let  _CRcompText _channel initializing_conatiner  nil [0 0] OBJ_DISABLE|CT_CENTER|CT_LABEL|CT_WORDWRAP|CT_LABEL|CT_SELECT OBJ_CONTAINER_KEYDOWN 400 150  strcatn "\n"::"\n"::"Starting Up 3d Rendering Engine"::nil initializingfont [0xffffff 0 0 0xffffff] [0xffffff 50] nil nil -> initializing_comptext in
   let _starttimer _channel 2500 -> intializing_timer in
  //get desktop size
   let _GETWorkingAreaSize -> [sw sh] in
  //mk octoplayer
  let mkOcto3dplayer [0 nil octo3dinitializing_window initializing_image  initializing_conatiner initializingfont initializing_comptext intializing_timer nil nil nil nil  [dtw dth] [dtw dth] nil nil nil nil nil nil nil nil nil nil nil] -> octoplayerstruct in
  let [file projname pw ph fullscreen octoplayerstruct sw sh] -> user_parameter in
  (
	//_SHOWwindow octo3dinitializing_window  WINDOW_MAXIMIZED;
	_SHOWwindow octo3dinitializing_window WINDOW_UNHIDDEN;
	_rfltimer intializing_timer  @octoinitOs3dPlayer user_parameter;
	_SIZEwindowEx octo3dinitializing_window dtw dth 0 0;
	_PAINTwindow  octo3dinitializing_window;
	_PAINTcontainer  initializing_conatiner;
	);
	0;;

i used this to figure how these functions work, desktop height returned the smallest value, fwiw screen and workingareasize were the same.

          		//code
                        let _GETWorkingAreaSize  -> [waw wah] in
			let _GETdesktopSize -> [dtw dth]	in
			let _GETscreenSize -> [screenwidth screenheight] in 
			(
			_showconsole;
                        _fooSList   "working area height:":: (itoa wah):: "desktop height"::(itoa dth):: "screen height":: (itoa screenheight)::nil; 
                        );

thx again for your help, problem of the afternoon solved...since i plan to manage the main app window with vb.net i don't know many of these problems i will have to deal with....i guess instead of dealing with interaction with the whole screen i will be dealing with interaction with a vb form...i'm sure some issues will pop up there as a result of my tinkering.

maybe I inverted _GETdesktopSize and _GETWorkingAreaSize behavior in my mind smile

sometimes I think of wearing those glasses that turn everything you see upside down for a few days...after a while the effect wears off, until you take off the glasses.
