Borderless TopWindow [message #6606] Mon, 20 November 2006 13:22 Go to next message

Hi all!

I tried to create a borderless, fullsized TopWindow. It should stay in front - and also hide the taskbar from windows. There should be no possibility to close that window (no title bar - no Alt F4) - except with the application close button.

I tried something with popup - but i was unable to popup the main window (task button in task bar appears - but no visible window Sad ).

I think, the solution could be the style property of TopWindows - but I didnt find any documentation about the possible values.

Would be nice if someone can help me.

Thanks,

WebChaot

Well, TheIDE splash-screen would classify, would not it?

Relevant parts of code are:

struct Splash : Ctrl {
	Splash() {
		SetRect(GetWorkArea().CenterRect(size)));
	}
};

void HideSplash()
{
	if(Single<Splash>().IsOpen())
		Single<Splash>().Close();
}

void ShowSplash()
{
	Single<Splash>().PopUp(NULL, false, false);
}

Hi Mirek!

>>> Well, TheIDE splash-screen would classify, would not it?

Not exactly. I still have a Splash Screen. But I want the applications main window (!) to stay in front off all others. Now I found a solution with popup (and protect it from closing with "WhenClose") - but no way to get the real screen resolution - because GetWorkArea() does exclude the windows task bar. But I want to place the window over the taskbar too.

Sorry, but this is too platform specific, I do not like to introduce features that are rarely used and work only on single platform.

But I guess that you should solve the problem simply with Win32 API. You can GetHWND for Ctrl and do anything you want...

Hi Mirek!

>>> Sorry, but this is too platform specific

Maybe its too platform specific - but not only needed on windows. We want to create some touch-screen applications - for windows and linux (and when ultimate is available on mac too). On every system we have to put the window in "FullSize()".

We do not need it now - we can set the width and height with an cfg-file - but maybe a useful extension.

Thanks a lot - also for that superb development platform Smile

Is that so?
On X11 it's trivial.
And why is that rarely used? full-screen videos, photos, slides...

A "TopWindow::SetFullscreen()" would be nice for kiosk applications.

I've seen a vehicle GPS touchscreen application built using wxWidgets. So it is possible for both Windows and Linux. Smile

Yes. Refactoring Image infrastructure was major focus of last year's development....

I recommend new U++.
