Here's more Windows message code numbers. HOWEVER...

These are ONLY the message numbers. You may need the Windows
SDK help file to obtain parameters (if needed - often they are zero).
Some of these will not work with VDS.

Occasionally entries have different codes for the same message.
This is usually for different versions of Windows. For example, NT4
and NT5 sometimes have different message numbers, and Win9x
may have yet another number for the same message.

If you find a message that works (especially one that's not in the
VDS API help file), PLEASE post the info and a short code example.

The last 4 digits are normally used in the @sendmsg() function with
a preceding "$". Here's an example for adding a horizontal scroll bar
to a list box ("LB_SETHORIZONTALEXTENT", message# is "0x0194",
"L1" is the list box name):

%z = @sendmsg(@winexists(~L1),$0194,2000,0)

WARNING: Use at your own risk.

NOTES:
- BM, CB, EM, LB, and WM items with "*" are NOT in the VDS API help file.
- BM, CB, EM, LB, and WM items with "?" are in the VDS API help file, but
  under a different name.
- All messages other than BM, CB, EM, LB, and WM prefixes are NOT in the
  VDS API help file.

messages, and a list of messages and their prefixes.
EDIT3 - Added remaining messages (all I could find), separated
BM, CB, EM, LB, and WM messages from the rest.

Unfortunately I already went threw almost all of these when I compiled that vds api help file. There might be a few that will work with the newer versions of VDS, such as for multi edit's and for menus though.

Hey Prakash,

I didn't realize you were the author of the VDS API
help file. You did a great job (as usual). Smile

Anyway, myself and some others have been wanting
these for a while. As you mentioned, VDS 3 and later
have more features, so hopefully we can find a few
more useful messages.

It's also possible that some of the basic commands will
be compatible, since VDS 3 was so drastically changed...

Cheers, Mac Smile

OK, so we (myself anyway) don't re-invent the wheel here...

Added "*" to messages that are NOT in the VDS API help file.

Added "?" to messages that are in the VDS API help file, but
under a different name.

Cheers, Mac Smile

Well, here's a start...

The WM_CHAR message sends a char to a specific edit box.
It works even if the dialog isn't active or is minimized, and
doesn't take the focus from another element.
Tested on Win95.
Code:

rem -- WM_CHAR sends a char to an edit box.
rem -- wParam = scan code of the character to send
rem -- lParam = zero
rem -- Message ID = $0102

OPTION SCALE, 96
OPTION DECIMALSEP, "."
TITLE By Mac
DIALOG CREATE,Test prog,-1,0,300,30
  DIALOG ADD,EDIT,E1,5,5,290,20
DIALOG SHOW

:EVLOOP
  REPEAT
    WAIT
    rem -- Send "a" (scan code 97) to the edit box (E1) --
    %z = @sendmsg(@winexists(~E1),$0102,97,0)
  UNTIL @event()

:CLOSE
  EXIT

Cheers, Mac

Yup Mac I made it along time ago. But I don't take all the credit for it, many of the messages were provided by the vds community and (sorry I forgot his name) a member of the vds community with a great .exe file with many api messages in it. Also with the help of Julian Moss I got many more API messages. Tommy and Garrett were also very helpful with API messages and testing. Sorry if I missed anyone else.


I eventually gave the .hlp file to SADE to distribute Smile Maybe the .hlp file can eventually be translated over to the new html help system .chm and add in any new api's you and others can find Smile

I think this is the tool Prakash is talking about:

http://www.vdsworld.com/index.php?page=search&keywords=sendmsg&search=GO

As you can see it's written by Matt Roberts.

I've edited the list to include a few messages for Scroll Bars
(SBM) and Static Controls (STM). There's more, but it's gonna take
a while to find 'em (they're scattered throughout the C++Builder
header files). I have no idea how many we can use (if any)...

Here's the available messages shown in my SDK version:
Code:

Prefix  Message category

ABM     Application desktop toolbar
BM      Button control
CB      Combo box control
CDM     Common dialog box
DBT     Device
DL      Drag list box
DM      Default push button control
EM      Edit control
HDM     Header control
LB      List box control
LVM     List view control
PBM     Progress bar
PSM     Property sheet
SB      Status bar window
SBM     Scroll bar control
STM     Static control
TB      Toolbar
TBM     Trackbar
TCM     Tab control
TTM     Tooltip control
TVM     Tree-view control
UDM     Up-down control
WM      General window


Cheers, Mac Smile

Hello, I was just surfing on the Internet, and found this:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/winprog/winprog/windows_api_reference.asp?

It's a lot of API stuff, directly from Microsoft.

I only haven't seen the message identifiers, but is it able to get them by VDS functions?

That's the complete Windows API code. The only thing
that VDS can use are the "messages" (starts with WM_,
BM_, etc.). I found the message codes that I posted by
searching thru Borland's C++ Builder "include" files
(using the "string search" program I posted in the VDS3
source code section).

Cheers, Mac Smile

Here's a script which illustrates the use of the LB_ITEMFROMPOINT API message.
Please note that the code was derived from the work of Eugene Trifonov, the author
of mouseindex.dll.

Some of the conversion routines which are used may contain small errors. The
decimal-binary conversion routines for example don't support for negative numbers.
There may also be easier ways to convert.

Code:

  title Test
  option decimalsep,.
  DIALOG CREATE,MouseIndex_Test,-1,0,381,215,CLASS VDSMOUSE
  DIALOG ADD,LIST,LIST1,4,8,180,204
  DIALOG ADD,EDIT,EDIT1,28,200,172,24
  DIALOG ADD,TEXT,TEXT1,11,200,,,List index position:
  DIALOG SHOW
  list loadfile,list1,mousetest.txt
:Evloop
  %E = @event()
  if %E
    goto %E
  end
     
  %%window = #VDSMOUSE
  %%control = LIST1
  gosub getmouseitem

  dialog set,EDIT1,%%index
  if @greater(%%index,-1)
    list seek,LIST1,%%index
  end
  wait 0.1
  goto evloop
:getmouseitem
  %x = @diff(@mousepos(X),@succ(@winpos(~%%control,L)))
  %y = @diff(@mousepos(Y),@sum(@winpos(~%%control,T),2))
  if @greater(0,%x)@greater(0,%y)@greater(@succ(%x),@dlgpos(%%control,W))@greater(@succ(%y),@dlgpos(%%control,H))
    %%result = 1
    %%index = 65535
  else
    %%dec = %x
    %%try = 32768
    gosub dec2bin
    %%low = %%bin
 
    %%dec = %y
    %%try = 32768
    gosub dec2bin
    %%high = %%bin
 
    %%bin = %%high%%low
    gosub bin2dec
    %%dec = @sendmsg(~%%control,$01A9,0,%%dec)
    %%resultdec = %%dec

    %%bin = %%high
    gosub bin2dec
    %%result = %%dec
 
    %%bin = %%low
    gosub bin2dec

    end
  until @equal(%%try,1)
  exit
:bin2dec
  %%dec = 0
  %%val = 1
  %i = @len(%%bin)
  repeat
    if @equal(@substr(%%bin,%i),1)
      %%dec = @fadd(%%dec,%%val)
    end
    %i = @pred(%i)
    %%val = @fmul(%%val,2)
