VaryText in Picture
« on: February 03, 2014, 09:15:09 am »
 ???
I am creating a dialog with a picture and arrows pointing to different diameters so when the user enters a value the calculation shows up in a variable text box in the picture. Is this possible or do I have to use an edit box. There will be about 10 different places where this will happen in the dialog. Version 2013B

I am not sure I understand what your asking for? Are you trying to dynamically write text on a picture control in a WIL dialog? If so I am not sure this can be accomplished by layering the controls.

Here is an image of what I am trying to do. The edit box works but in some cases I will have to have 2 whereas with the vary text I can stack the information in 1 box. The red circles is where information would be displayed.

I suppose if the graphic you posted is used as the background image of the dialog you could use vary text controls to display your values.

For example:
Code: Winbatch
vtVariable1 = "1.0000"
vtVariable2 = "2.0000"
vtVariable3 = "3.0000"
vtVariable4 = "4.0000"

MyDialogFormat=`WWWDLGED,6.2`

MyDialogCaption=`WIL Dialog 1`
MyDialogX=002
MyDialogY=059
MyDialogWidth=766
MyDialogHeight=353
MyDialogNumControls=006
MyDialogProcedure=`DEFAULT`
MyDialogFont=`DEFAULT`
MyDialogTextColor=`DEFAULT`
MyDialogBackground=`"C:\Users\Deana\Pictures\background.bmp",DEFAULT`
MyDialogConfig=0

Unfortunately you are not going to be able to accomplish this by layering the controls (Editbox or VaryText)

The edit box works. I just use the same background color so unleess there is information in it you don't see it.

Are you sure, it works. Post a screen shot of an Editbox containing text that is overlaying a picture control.

Probably works with the right Tab order.  At least that has been my experience with controls sitting on top of each other.   Can get a little flaky though with COM controls trying to do such a thing.

I can't see why a VARYTEXT control wouldn't work for multiple lines, if an edit box already works for single lines.  A MULTILINEBOX would work as well but the MULTILINEBOX has scroll bars that could show up and ruin the effect, if you were not careful with text size. 

Which ever you choose, remember that you should use both a carriage return and a line feed (@CRLF) at the end of a line to get a line break in MULTILINEBOX boxes.  Either a @CR or a @LF will work to cause line breaks in a VARYTEXT control.

Here is a screenshot of how it looks. There are 2 separate pictures used in the dialog. Like I said the vary text won't work from what I have tried but the edit box works. I just have to use 2 when I have a tolerance to deal with.

Sorry if I missed this but when you say it "won't work", what do you mean?  You can't see the text boxes or it doesn't display properly, etc.

My error.  The edit box works because you can give it the input focus but the VARYTEXT control cannot receive the input focus so it will never draw on top of the bitmap.

When I get a chance I will look into this a little more and see if I can come up with a workaround of some kind.  In the mean time you might consider putting your bitmaps together and using the combined image as your dialogs background.

Here is a quick and dirty dialog callback procedure that changes the extended styles of your PICTURE control and two VARYTEXT controls that would replace the edit controls in the dialog template your posted above.
Code: Winbatch
InitDialogConstants()                                       ; Initialize Dialog Constants (need only be done once usually)

#DefineSubroutine MyDialogCallbackProc(MyDialog_Handle,MyDialog_Message,MyDialog_Name,MyDialog_EventInfo,MyDialog_ChangeInfo)
   ON_EQUAL = @TRUE                                         ; Initialize variable ON_EQUAL
   switch MyDialog_Message                                  ; Switch based on Dialog Message type
      case MSG_INIT
         GWL_EXSTYLE       = -20
         WS_EX_TRANSPARENT = 32
         hUser32 = DllLoad(DirWindows(1):"User32.dll")
         
         ; Remove style from picture control 1
         hControl = DialogControlGet(MyDialog_Handle,"Picture_1", DC_HANDLE)
         CtrlStyle = DllCall(hUser32, long:"GetWindowLongA", long:hControl, long:GWL_EXSTYLE)
         ;;;[correction: changed the 'CtrlStyle|' to 'CtrlStyle&']
         DllCall(hUser32, long:"SetWindowLongA", long:hControl, long:GWL_EXSTYLE, long:CtrlStyle&(~WS_EX_TRANSPARENT))
         
         ; Remove style from picture control 2
         hControl = DialogControlGet(MyDialog_Handle,"Picture_2", DC_HANDLE)
         CtrlStyle = DllCall(hUser32, long:"GetWindowLongA", long:hControl, long:GWL_EXSTYLE)
         ;;;[correction: changed the 'CtrlStyle|' to 'CtrlStyle&']
         DllCall(hUser32, long:"SetWindowLongA", long:hControl, long:GWL_EXSTYLE, long:CtrlStyle&(~WS_EX_TRANSPARENT))
         
         ; Add style to varytext control 1.
         hControl = DialogControlGet(MyDialog_Handle,"VaryText_1", DC_HANDLE)
         CtrlStyle = DllCall(hUser32, long:"GetWindowLongA", long:hControl, long:GWL_EXSTYLE)
         DllCall(hUser32, long:"SetWindowLongA", long:hControl, long:GWL_EXSTYLE, long:CtrlStyle|WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)

         ; Add style to varytext control 2.
         hControl = DialogControlGet(MyDialog_Handle,"VaryText_2", DC_HANDLE)
         CtrlStyle = DllCall(hUser32, long:"GetWindowLongA", long:hControl, long:GWL_EXSTYLE)
         DllCall(hUser32, long:"SetWindowLongA", long:hControl, long:GWL_EXSTYLE, long:CtrlStyle|WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)
         DllFree(hUser32)

   endswitch                                                ; MyDialog_Message
   return(RET_DO_DEFAULT)
#EndSubroutine                                              ; End of Dialog Callback MyDialogCallbackProc
 

The WS_EX_TRANSPARENT extended windows style forces the control to be drawn after its sibling controls. So what the callback does is removes the style from the PICTURE controls and adds it to the VARYTEXT controls.  This should force the VARYTEXT controls to be display on top of the PICTURE controls.   

If you need help using the callback to test this idea, post your questions here and I am sure someone will be glad to help.

Thanks that code will help but as putting both images together I started to but it was easier at the beginning to just make 2 separate. Did not foresee the problems down the road but I’m almost finished with it. I get to work on it a few minutes a day so I have to come each time and try to remember were I left off. Thanks again!

Hi,
another way around this, that I've used a few times in my dialogs, is to use a Picture Button control for the pictures... and here is the trick to make it work the way you want:
In the dialog editor, give the Picture Button(s) both the FLAT and DISABLED styles and make sure their TAB ORDER has a LESSER value than the controls you want to be over the top.
In the dialog editor it will look the opposite of that, but when the dialog is run, the other controls will be above the picture button.
The final piece of this trick is to make a NEGATIVE of your source picture file... this is usually very easy in an image editor.. there is usually an effect called Negative or invert colors or something.
 The reason to make a negative is that the "disabled" picture button would normally display the picture as a negative anyway, and doing this makes it display it normally again, all the while keeping it disabled (non-clickable) and flat (no border) and having the other controls drawn above it.

Try it out.. it works.
 
Regards,
