I am currently coding some small-scale automation tools for my department and have been running into some issues as I am a beginner to Win32 coding.
I need to read and parse the text from another application's StatusStrip. I am assuming it's a StatusStrip as sending either an SB_GETTEXT or WM_GETTEXT message to the control's handle retrieves nothing. However, it may be a custom control as getting the child windows of this control only returns a handle to a StatusBar Progress Bar control.
I am hoping that it is not a custom control and I am just missing some reason as to why the ToolStripStatusLabels are not showing up as children of the StatusStrip control.
I have also been having issues trying to read from a ListView in this app, but I believe it's a custom control as well because I have no issues reading from another app's ListViews by virtually allocating memory and all of that jazz.
I do know that the app I'm having difficulty with uses a lot of the newer .Net controls that the other app's don't.
So, if anyone has any insight as to how I would retrieve the text from another app's StatusStrip, I would be extremely grateful.
The documentation for OpenIcon says that it will restore a window to its previous size and location. This isn't happening - it is restoring the window but not to its previous size. Is there something extra that needs to be done when calling it from C#? The ReturnValue indicates success.
Yep , I'm not even sure you can find out when it's been JITted, I remember someone a few years ago having real trouble tracking down a bug and it was eventually sussed out that the method had been inlined. This might have been in a beta version though.
You set it's properties just like you would with any other control. Is this .NET 2.0? If so, you automatically get two panels (a left and right, by default) that you can then drop other controls onto.
If it's earlier than .NET 2.0, you need to drop a panel on the form, drop the splitter control, and then drop another panel. If I remember correctly, the splitter will automatically dock left...if not you will need to set the dock properties by hand. After that, you just drop controls onto the respective panels.
In just two days, tomorrow will be yesterday.
1. Drop the control you want on the left hand side on the form, and dock it left.
2. Drop the splitter control on your form (it will dock to the left automatically).
3. Drop the control you want on the right hand side on the form, and dock it fill.
There are actually 2 different controls that provide similar functionality. There is the 'legacy' splitter control that is the same as the previous versions of visual studio. You have to drop a panel, then the splitter, then another panel.
The better control, IMO, is the SplitContainer. This shows up with a default left and right panels already configured. You can change the orientation so it is top and bottom. It is a container control so you can drop pretty much whatever you want inside of the contained panels.
You'll most likely want to set the minimum sizes for the panels (property names will be Panel1MinSize and Panel2MinSize. This will keep the user from shrinking them too far.
