Hi Very Happy

I'm working in an application that it has activated the property "resize". When I present/display a child window I need that the main window does not respond to the events "resize" or "minimize".

Somebody knows how to disable events "resize" or "minimize"? ... Using API...? Help...

A bad "solution" is this:

Code:

  option decimalsep,.
  dialog create,Main Window,310,400,300,150,resizable
  DIALOG ADD,TEXT,txt1,16,117,,,resize me
  dialog show

  dialog create,Child Window,500,400,100,100,smallcap
  dialog show
 
:evloop
  repeat
    wait .01
    %a = @winactive()
   
    if @equal(%a,Main Window)
      window activate,Child Window
    end
   
    %e = @event()
  until %e
  goto %e
 
:close
  exit
 
:resize
  window position,Main Window,310,400,300,150
  goto evloop


Thanks

Try this uvedese,

Code:


  dialog create,Parent Window,-1,0,300,300,RESIZABLE
  dialog show

  dialog create,Child,-1,0,250,250,RESIZABLE,SMALLCAP
  dialog show

:Evloop
  wait event
  REM Parse the event and the dialog that it came from into separate variables.
  parse "%E;%D",@event(D)
  goto %E

:RESIZE
  if @zero(%D)
    dialog select,0
    REM Handle the resizing of the "Parent Window" here
  end
  goto Evloop

:CLOSE
  exit

Thanks ShinobiSoft... Wink

...but I do not want that the position and size of the main window can be modified. It is possible to be blocked and unblocked window?

thanks again

Hi uvedese,

Can you please be more specific about what you are doing or wanting?

Let me see if I have this right:

1) You are creating a parent window that is resizable, but you don't want
it to be resized or moved. Is this only when the child window is visible?

2) Do you also want the child window to be resizable?

ShinobiSoft:

Pardon not to express to me and by my bad English

Just the option 1:

And the answer is "yes"

thanks in advance

What about this

Code:

:RESIZE
  IF @WINEXISTS("ChildWinNameHere")
    Goto Evloop
  END


That would work as long as your child window didn't resize
I THINK Very Happy

Hi kOt. Thank you very much...

...Yes, it is certain, but... Crying or Very sad already the sizes of the main window could have been modified being visible the child window.

How to do so that the main window cannot be modified of size while child window is visible Question Exclamation

If the main window is not allowed to react to events at all, you can try "dialog showmodal" to display the child window. After closing the child window, the parent one will become available to the user again.
