    Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hi Krool
    I downloaded the MDI_ToolBar Demo but I can't figure outhow to make the ToolBar control accessible per shortcut key on a MDIForm
    For example what code I need to show Form2 and where shall I place this code as it is not possible to place it in KeyDown event of the MDIForm

    If you download the demo then run and test it out.
    If it does what you expect then study the demo project how it's done. (E.g. what's for code in the Form, how are the properties set etc.)
    It should be all self-explaining. I would just repeat here what's shown in the demo project..

    Sorry sir I'm a beginner
    I downloaded the demo and tested it
    I was expecting I could do something like that
    Code:
    If KeyCode = vbKeyF1 Then FormChild.Show
    The same thing I do in a form Form_KeyDown event.
    But since a MdiForm doesn't have a KeyDown event, I couldn't figure out how to make use of shortcut keys.

    Yes, an MDIFrom doesn't have a KeyDown event.
    The MDI_ToolBar demo is therefore using a WH_KEYBOARD_LL hook to detect WM_SYSKEYDOWN and with flag LLKHF_ALTDOWN and pass to ToolBar1.ContainerKeyDown. ToolBar1.ContainerKeyDown is a convinient method that will trigger a button click, when there is a button caption with an Ampersand (e.g. "&New Doc", which displays "New Doc") an key code matching it. (of course the button also must be enabled, not disabled)
    However, what you want is then independent from ToolBar1.ContainerKeyDown.
    To reach your behavior I just changed the hook, see below:
    Code:
    Private Type KBDLLHOOKSTRUCT
    VKCode As Long
    ScanCode As Long
    Flags As Long
    Time As Long
    dwExtraInfo As Long
    End Type
    Private Declare Sub CopyMemory Lib "kernel32" Alias "RtlMoveMemory" (ByRef Destination As Any, ByRef Source As Any, ByVal Length As Long)
    Private Declare Function GetActiveWindow Lib "user32" () As Long
    Private Const WM_KEYDOWN As Long = &H100
    Implements IHook
    
    Private Sub IHook_Before(ByRef Handled As Boolean, ByRef RetVal As Long, ByVal HookType As HookTypeConstants, ByVal HookCode As HookCodeConstants, ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long)
    If HookType = WH_KEYBOARD_LL Then
        If HookCode = HC_ACTION Then
            If wParam = WM_KEYDOWN Then
                If GetActiveWindow() = Me.hWnd Then
                    Dim KBDLLHS As KBDLLHOOKSTRUCT
                    CopyMemory KBDLLHS, ByVal lParam, LenB(KBDLLHS)
                    Dim KeyCode As Integer
                    KeyCode = KBDLLHS.VKCode And &HFF&
                    If KeyCode = vbKeyF1 Then
                        With New FormChild
                        .Show vbModeless
                        End With
                        Handled = True
                        RetVal = 1
                    End If
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End If
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub IHook_After(ByRef RetVal As Long, ByVal HookType As HookTypeConstants, ByVal HookCode As HookCodeConstants, ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long)
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub MDIForm_Load()
    Call SetHook(Me, WH_KEYBOARD_LL)
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub MDIForm_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
    Call RemoveHook(Me, WH_KEYBOARD_LL)
    End Sub
    To make this user-friendly you could include in the button caption in the ToolBar an "(F1)". Even when in real it's totally disconnected.

    It is? Do you mean the VisualStyles property has already included a newer modern version of the tooltip class?

    no, i wrote this at one of my posts:

    Now i use a tooltip class and replace the tooltiptext property of all controls on the form for a more fresh look.
    I guess there is no "modern look" tooltiptext with all the vbccr16 controls possible without using an extra tooltip class...

    For the Control.ToolTipText your right. This was already discussed before and an idea was to include an .ToolTipTextW property that supports Unicode and theming. It's not possible to overwrite .ToolTipText because it's handled by VBControlExtender.

    if the current .ToolTipText property can save unicode text it would be better to add a new option to select the using of the .ToolTipText property:

    1. standard VB ToolTipText
    2. new ToolTipText class with modern look

    but i guess if the .ToolTipText is handled by VBControlExtender you cant save unicode text, or?

    Question TabStrip background color

    I use a form with a white background and the TabStrip uses a grey background color:

    Name:  Screenshot - 17.08.2019 , 22_36_09.png
Views: 261

    Does anyone know how to change the background color of the TabStrip control or to change the control background to transparent?

    I cant find any property to do this...

    There is no such property.
    I asked for this some time ago as well.

    The COMCTL32 doesn't offer a possibility.
    And all other means require a major effort to be reliable.

    Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Changing backcolor on tab-strip's tabs can be implemented on *parent* WM_PRINTCLIENT msg like this

    Code:
        Case WM_PRINTCLIENT
            '--- for tab-strip integration
            If (lParam And PRF_CLIENT) <> 0 Then
                Call GetClientRect(m_hWnd, rc)
                Call FillRect(wParam, rc, m_hBackBrush)
                Exit Function
            End If
    This is just an idea for Krool so he can can look to it if possible to impl here.

    cheers,

    Wow, I didn't know that. This works and is straight-forward. Is this an implementation on later OS ?
    Though, it only works with VisualStyles set to True and with style 'Tabs' (all other styles are anyway not themed)

    I thought it needs to be "hacked" via WM_PAINT with calculation of all the item rects and glitching around…

    That the parent needs to handle WM_PRINTCLIENT reminds me of the ListView control. There was something similar added since Vista.

    Thank you. Will consider this one.

    Very interesting.
    Do you have a small working example?

    EDIT:
    Just saw Krool's answer.
    So an example for me is not needed.

    Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    So, the WM_PRINTCLIENT trick works for themed TabStrip back to Windows XP. So that is great. Thanks again wqweto. How did you come to this?

    For the other styles, unthemed or when owner drawn the workaround to catch WM_PAINT and draw in memory dc would work sufficient as the item rect's are meaningful to get by API's, no rounded corners and assumptions(!) like in the themed tab.

    When somebody can't wait for the official BackColor property, then you may apply the following in the function "WindowProcUserControl":
    Code:
    Case WM_PRINTCLIENT
        ' hard-coded as no BackColor property there yet. :) Just a demo.
        If TabStripHandle <> 0 Then
            If WindowFromDC(wParam) = TabStripHandle Then
                Dim RC As RECT, Brush As Long
                GetClientRect TabStripHandle, RC
                Brush = CreateSolidBrush(vbRed)
                FillRect wParam, RC, Brush
                DeleteObject Brush
                Exit Function
            End If
        End If
    Two minor modification compared to wqweto.
    1. no PRF_CLIENT flag check needed because WM_PRINTCLIENT is per definition always PRF_CLIENT.
    2. added a check that the associated wParam (DC) is really linked to the TabStrip and not any other window..

    Question RichTextBox unicode save bug?

    I loaded a file with a BOM header FFFE using the flag RtfLoadSaveFormatUnicodeText into a RichTextBox.
    The BOM header was removed and not shown up at the text window.
    Everything was fine until here.

    Later i saved the file with the flag RtfLoadSaveFormatUnicodeText but the BOM header FFFE not have been added to file again!
    I thought using the flag RtfLoadSaveFormatUnicodeText when saving a file would always add the BOM header to the file...

    Is this a bug or how can i save the file including the BOM header again?

    Thanks. Fixed.

    That was a "bug". Not really a bug because the rich edit control just handle streams. It does not care about BOM header.
    So it was an oversight by me to not write the BOM header when saving a Unicode file.

    Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    I also slightly modified LoadFile for RichTextBox.
    It will load unicode file even when there is no BOM.
    Prior to this change (when there is no BOM) it fall backs to ANSI text. But that does not make sense at all when specifying RtfLoadSaveFormatUnicodeText. It should read Unicode for BOM and no BOM cases without unlogic fall back to ANSI when there is no BOM.

    Question RichTextBox: missing flag at the Find function

    Im missing the reverse flag at the the Find function of the RichTextBox to search a document backwards.

    See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet
    /api/system.windows.forms.richtextboxfinds?view=netframework-4.8


    Or does the RichTextBox of the CommonControls not support this flag?

    .redraw property

    Currently i use my own reverse search function but the backward search can be very slow when using large files and the search text isnt found.

    I guess a .redraw property for the RichTextBox would be very nice to speed up the search.

    Maybe this code helps you to implement a .redraw property:

    Hello sir
    I noticed that when I call the function SetHook I will be unable to use keyboard keys.
    Hence, Impossible to write in textboxes

    However, what you want is then independent from ToolBar1.ContainerKeyDown.
    To reach your behavior I just changed the hook, see below:
    Code:
    Private Type KBDLLHOOKSTRUCT
    VKCode As Long
    ScanCode As Long
    Flags As Long
    Time As Long
    dwExtraInfo As Long
    End Type
    Private Declare Sub CopyMemory Lib "kernel32" Alias "RtlMoveMemory" (ByRef Destination As Any, ByRef Source As Any, ByVal Length As Long)
    Private Declare Function GetActiveWindow Lib "user32" () As Long
    Private Const WM_KEYDOWN As Long = &H100
    Implements IHook
    
    Private Sub IHook_Before(ByRef Handled As Boolean, ByRef RetVal As Long, ByVal HookType As HookTypeConstants, ByVal HookCode As HookCodeConstants, ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long)
    If HookType = WH_KEYBOARD_LL Then
        If HookCode = HC_ACTION Then
            If wParam = WM_KEYDOWN Then
                If GetActiveWindow() = Me.hWnd Then
                    Dim KBDLLHS As KBDLLHOOKSTRUCT
                    CopyMemory KBDLLHS, ByVal lParam, LenB(KBDLLHS)
                    Dim KeyCode As Integer
                    KeyCode = KBDLLHS.VKCode And &HFF&
                    If KeyCode = vbKeyF1 Then
                        With New FormChild
                        .Show vbModeless
                        End With
                        Handled = True
                        RetVal = 1
                    End If
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End If
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub IHook_After(ByRef RetVal As Long, ByVal HookType As HookTypeConstants, ByVal HookCode As HookCodeConstants, ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long)
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub MDIForm_Load()
    Call SetHook(Me, WH_KEYBOARD_LL)
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub MDIForm_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
    Call RemoveHook(Me, WH_KEYBOARD_LL)
    End Sub
    To make this user-friendly you could include in the button caption in the ToolBar an "(F1)". Even when in real it's totally disconnected.
    Hello sir
    I noticed that when I call the function SetHook I will be unable to use keyboard keys.
    Hence, Impossible to write in textboxes
    thanks

    There is no reverse flag, right.
    However, you can search backwards by flipping the parameters. It's demonstrated in the Demo:
    Code:
    If (CommonDialogFind.Flags And CdlFRDown) = CdlFRDown Then
        RetVal = RichTextBox1.Find(CommonDialogFind.FindWhat, RichTextBox1.SelStart + RichTextBox1.SelLength, , Options)
    Else
        RetVal = RichTextBox1.Find(CommonDialogFind.FindWhat, , RichTextBox1.SelStart, Options)
    End If
    So if Down is selected in the Find common dialog the search in RichTextBox is forward.
    If Up is selected then the search appears backward.
    But if two hit results are found it's the first from start and not the first from SelStart.
    So it's not real backward but for most cases appear ok.
    Whatsoever I will look to include Reverse flag soon.

    Currently i use the following function for a real backward search:

    Code:
    Public Function RTB_FindReverse(ByRef cRTB As VBCCR16.RichTextBox, ByVal sFindText As String, Optional ByVal lStartPos As Long = -1, Optional ByVal lSearchFlags As Long) As Long
             
          Dim I As Long
          Dim lPos As Long
          Dim TextLen As Long
          
    20    TextLen = Len(sFindText)
          
    30    Call LockWindowUpdate(cRTB.hwnd)
          
    40    If lStartPos = -1 Then
    50       lStartPos = Len(cRTB.Text) 'end of file
    60    End If
          
    70    For I = lStartPos To 0 Step -1
                
    80       lPos = cRTB.Find(sFindText, I, I + TextLen, lSearchFlags)
    90       If lPos <> -1 Then Exit For
             
    100   Next I
          
    110   Call LockWindowUpdate(0)
          
    120   RTB_FindReverse = lPos
          
    End Function
    I hope the new reverse flag will help to speed up backward searching through large files...

    /api/system.windows.forms.richtextboxfinds?view=netframework-4.8


    Or does the RichTextBox of the CommonControls not support this flag?
    Thanks Mith. You become a good tester.

    The flag 'RtfFindOptionReverse' is now included for the Find method.
    It has the same value 16 (&H10) as in the .net RichTextBoxFinds Enum.

    Your RTB_FindReverse helper function is slow because you call the .Find method in a loop.
    Also in each loop the control blinks as the text is selected unless the NoHighlight enum option was specified.
    So please try 'RtfFindOptionReverse'. It should work fast without any need to turn off redrawing.

    I tested the code snipped I provided to you again in my MDI_ToolBar demo and it was no problem to write in the textbox of the child form.
    Please provide a demo project showing your issue.

    I guess more reports will come n the future because i use your controls to convert a very large vb6 project to unicode

    I wish we had a unicode TreeGrid control...does anyone known a TreeGrid control with unicode support?

    The new flag works very well and fast! Thanks for the implementation!

    I use the vsFlexGrid from ComponentOne
    Seems it's called Grapecity nowadays...

    Does the vbFlexGrid also supports a Treeview in a given column?

    Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    BackColor property in the TabStrip now included.

    Also the OCX got updated. I don't like it as it is a functional jump, even it's still binary compatibility.
    However, I also found the alternative to wait for 1.7 too stupid. As this feature was so often asked and wqweto now provided a solution...

    So still until today OCX is still in sync with Std-EXE version.

    The BackColor property in TabStrip will be enriched in future so it also works when VisualStyles is False or DrawMode is OwnerDrawn. This was just the first step.

    Also bugfix for "TabStrip1.DrawBackground(hWnd, hDC)" method in this update. The bug was was that an offset could happen due to difference between window rect and client rect.
    The new routine is also simplified. It's now directly mapped between client hWnd and TabStrip.
    Also instead of SendMessage WM_PAINT it now uses WM_PRINT with PRF_CLIENT + PRF_ERASEBKGND. (for correct result even when theming is off)
    Code:
    Public Sub DrawBackground(ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal hDC As Long)
    If TabStripHandle <> 0 And hWnd <> 0 And hDC <> 0 Then
        Dim RC As RECT, P As POINTAPI
        GetClientRect hWnd, RC
        MapWindowPoints hWnd, TabStripHandle, RC, 2
        P.X = RC.Left
        P.Y = RC.Top
        SetViewportOrgEx hDC, -P.X, -P.Y, P
        SendMessage TabStripHandle, WM_PRINT, hDC, ByVal PRF_CLIENT Or PRF_ERASEBKGND
        SetViewportOrgEx hDC, P.X, P.Y, P
    End If
    End Sub

    Question ListView ListItem and /SubItem Backcolor (UseItemStyleForSubItems property)

    There exists a ListItem property named "UseItemStyleForSubItems" that enables you to change the backcolor of ListItems and SubItems.

    Is it possible to add this property to the ListView control?

    See https://www.google.com/search?q=list...yleForSubItems

    ListView column alignment bug

    i created a listview with report mode and defined that the first and fifth column is right-aligned.
    i also used FullRowSelect=False and AutoSelectFirstItem=False

    after i created the report i get this:

    Name:  listview align wrong.jpg
Views: 153
Size:  13.0 KB

    the first item is auto selected but i used AutoSelectFirstItem=False and the alignment is switched from right to left because the item was autoselect...


    normally it should look like this:

    Name:  listview align ok.jpg
Views: 154
Size:  13.9 KB

    after i click on another item it looks like this:

    Name:  listview align wrong mouse click.jpg
Views: 153
Size:  13.1 KB

    1. i can avoid this alignment-swapping when i set FullRowSelect=True.

    2. if AutoSelectFirstItem is set to False the control should not autoselect the first item ,or?

    3. is it somehow possible to lock the listview without using enable=false to prevent user mouse clicks or keyboard inputs? i guess a .locked property would help here...

    Example project: test - ListView Alignment bug.zip
