Problem with DDT-Example to SDK-Style
« on: November 04, 2011, 03:35:54 PM »
Hallo,

I would like to use a DDT-example from the PowerBasic-forum in my SDK code. Unfortunately I get with my SDK-translation not the same result. I use PBWin 9.05 an Windows XP SP3.

1. the listbox has no height. I can help me futher with the added style %LBS_NOINTEGRALHEIGHT. But why is that with DDT not necessary?

2. is olny one bitmap displayed with the SDK-style.

(I use PBWin 9.05 an Windows XP SP3.)

Please help me further.

Okay, Point 2. is clear now. I have found the error.

It must be:

    LOCAL lb_item_number AS long
    FOR ic = 32660 TO 32661
       hBmp = LoadImage(BYVAL %NULL, BYVAL ic, %IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0, %LR_SHARED)   
       IF hBmp THEN
          txt = ""
          SendMessage hCtl, %LB_ADDSTRING, 0, STRPTR(txt)       
          SendMessage hCtl, %LB_SETITEMDATA, lb_item_number, hBmp
          INCR lb_item_number
       END IF
    NEXT             


But I do not unterstand the thing with the height of the Listbox.
What makes b. Zale with DDT differently. Is this a question of the Style?
PBWinSpy gives me no answer.

I've not checked whole code but see at first shurt eye catcher this could be one tipp for you.

2) if you are using controls you can do something like

Code: [Select]
hCtl = CreateWindowEx(0, "BUTTON", "&Popup", %WS_CHILD OR %WS_VISIBLE OR %WS_TABSTOP OR %BS_FLAT, _
          0, 0, 0, 0, hWndMain, %IDOK, hInstance, BYVAL %NULL)
   IF hFont THEN SendMessage hCtl, %WM_SETFONT, hFont, 0

and then size the control in window procedere (call back/ddt) with

Code: [Select]
CASE %WM_SIZE
                  ' Resize the two sample buttons of the dialog
         IF wParam <> %SIZE_MINIMIZED THEN
            GetClientRect hWnd, rc
            'MoveWindow GetDlgItem(hWnd, %IDOK), (rc.nRight - rc.nLeft) - 185, (rc.nBottom - rc.nTop) - 35, 75, 23, %TRUE
            'MoveWindow GetDlgItem(hWnd, %IDCANCEL), (rc.nRight - rc.nLeft) - 95, (rc.nBottom - rc.nTop) - 35, 75, 23, %TRUE
            MoveWindow GetDlgItem(hWnd, %IDOK), 585, 435, 75, 23, %TRUE
            MoveWindow GetDlgItem(hWnd, %IDCANCEL), 495, 435, 75, 23, %TRUE
         END IF

see fixed example in zip file. compiled with pbwin 10.

Hello Frank

thank you for your answer. But the question for me is not how can I make the listbox items visible. I wonder why is the difference between DDT and SDK. DDT is still just a wrapper for the WIN API. So I thought: Missing in my SDK sample an add style for the listbox.

Regards

In your DDT code you're using dialog units and with SDK windows you have to use pixels.

DDT is not a wrapper for SDK Windows, but a wrapper on top of the Dialog Windows Engine. Dialogs and SDK windows are very different.

Therefore, don't use dialog styles with SDK windows, as you're doing in

Code: [Select]
    dwStyle     = %WS_VISIBLE OR %WS_CLIPSIBLINGS OR %WS_CAPTION OR _
                  %WS_BORDER OR %WS_DLGFRAME OR %WS_SYSMENU OR _
                  %DS_3DLOOK OR %DS_NOFAILCREATE OR %DS_SETFONT OR _
                  %DS_CENTER

The "DS_xxx" are dialog styles.

Use instead something like

Code: [Select]
    dwStyle = %WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW OR %WS_CLIPCHILDREN

hello norbert, if you like you can study this simple sdk windows example with two buttons. I have had same exploring and experience about difference between ddt dialog and sdk window frame. either you're working with ddt modus or sdk modus. I prefer sdk modus, although there's a lot of more to code and it's not easiest way at beginning to grasp all new things, but the exe files are smaller and faster (I've tested some weeks ago this behaviour). Perhaps you can later have a closer  look to josé's "cWindow" class too.

here simple sdk window frame four you:

The following explains why the listbox collapses to 4 pixels.   
By the way, the same is true for the DDT listbox.

A listbox that does not have the LBS_NOINTEGRALHEIGHT style sets its initial height based on the stock
SYSTEM_FONT. The average character height of this font is 16 pixels, therefore, the minimum height of
the listbox(client edge with no border) would be 20 pixels according to the Phoenix Visual Form designer.

The minimum height of a listbox without the LBS_NOINTEGRALHEIGHT style can be represented by the following formulae:

Code: [Select]
CyCtrl    = cyBorder + (cyItem * ((cySet - cyBorder * 2) \ cyItem)) + cyBorder
cyMinCtrl = cyBorder + cyItem + cyBorder

cyMinCtrl = Minimum integral height of control
cyCtrl    = Final height of control in pixels
cySet     = Height passed to CreateWindowEx in pixels
cyItem    = Height of item/font in pixels
cyBorder  = Height of border in pixels

In your case(after control is created before call to LB_SETITEMHEIGHT)

cySet = 36
cyBorder = 4
cyItem(font height) = 16

Therefore, the height of the control after it is created = 36 pixels.
(I guess 36 is a bad example)

Then you set the item height to 36 pixels, but that requires the control to have a minimum integral height of 40 pixels.
The control always rounds down when setting its integral height which causes big headaches in a Visual Form Designer.
In you case, the current height of the control is 36 pixels not the 40 needed for an integral height. The control
shrinks to the next integral height leaving only the borders and a client height of zero pixels.

This is why the Phoenix Form Designer generates this code after the font and item height is set for the control.

Code: [Select]
      ' Adjust the height of the control so that the integral height
      ' is based on the new font rather than the default SYSTEM_FONT
      SetWindowPos hWndChild, %NULL, 8, 8, 60, 42, %SWP_NOZORDER

By the way, Phoenix 2.0 generated this code in the wrong order.

Many thanks, this helps me really.

Frank, Thanks for your code example.

Jose,
"In your code you're using DDT dialog units and with windows SDK you have to use pixels."
-> That is the point to which I not came.
The use of the code snippet with %DS_XXX came from the use of PB WinSpy++++ v1.17.
I compiled the DDT-example and got then a framework with PB WinSpy for the translation
to SDK. In my real source code, I had not used %DS_XXX.

Dominic, you have this really explained well. This is very instructive for me.

Greetings
