Advanced search with quoted string

29 Dec 2017, 08:28

Since raising a question and it being 'suggested' I do some 'research' and include some forum searches I would like some guidance on how I can get the forum results for a search for a specific string in quotes.
In this case it "GUI, New,"
I am asking as I tried that and got 88 pages and of the first 20 or so pages I checked none of them had that particular sequence of GUI and New.
I wanted to get some assurance that I might actually find an example of someone using GUI, New so I can compare what has been used before.
I am using variables for the X, Y, Width and Height and although I can get a variable to contain all the values and the indicators X,Y,H,W and send it to the console viw FileAppend I still get an invalid option error when using the same syntax in the actual GUI command.

Best would be to show your script.

my test snippet. My original had all the calculations in the GUI, New, line itself. I Would prefer them to be there instead of before.

; GUI New
X1 := 100
Y1 := 100
X2 := 400
Y2 := 400
GUIwidth := X2-X1
FileAppend, %GUIwidth%`n,*
GUIheight := Y2-Y1
FileAppend, %GUIheight%`n,*
dX := 242
dY := 98
GUIx := X1+dX
GUIy := Y1+dY
Options := "W" GUIwidth "H" GUIheight "X" GUIx "Y" GUIy
FileAppend, %Options%`n,*
; next line gives GUI syntax error
GUI, New, Options, "GUI Title"
; And this
GUI, New, % Options, "GUI Title"
; And this
GUI, New, % "W" GUIwidth "H" GUIheight "X" GUIx "Y" GUIy, "GUI Title"

As far as I know, Gui, new doesn't support these options like w, h, x and y. You are probably confusing it with the options for Gui, Show.

The available options for new: https://autohotkey.com/docs/commands/Gui.htm#Options

Another problem is your options string: it doesn't contain spaces: W300H300X342Y198 won't work, I guess.
Try it with Options := "W" GUIwidth " H" GUIheight " X" GUIx " Y" GUIy and Gui, Show, % options
