Examples of Non-Standard GUIs (ActiveX, GDI, etc.)

16 Feb 2014, 05:38

Hi guys,
I'm not a GUI freak and sometime I can observe some really nice GUI implementations from community users. I would like we share our most original work so that we can reuse some ideas in ours projects...

This is something I did, not so original, but at least not conventional:

This was originally coded by just me in this thread.
I've made a couple small changes.
I liked the style, so I've used it as a template a couple times.

Change this line: Gui, Show, % "w" Width " NA" " x" (A_ScreenWidth - Width) " y150"
to this: Gui, Show, % "w" Width " NA" :geek:

This is the most complicated GUI I ever created. It's too complicated for me to separate out just the code for the GUI due to function calls, glabels, etc., but I will post the entire code if you want me to.

It's complicated to explain if you have no idea what I am talking about, but the app is used to fuzzy match one file name to another. It's purpose is to match pictures and videos to rom names for use in front ends for Emulation, although there may be other uses. It was written in basic. It appears that some of the dll calls don't work properly in version 1.1.14.2. I attached the exe in case the code doesn't work properly for whatever version of AHK you are using.

Here is the description that was posted along with the app at EmuMovies.com

Perfect Match is the sequel to Skinny Match

New Features include:

Perfect Match has the ability to save multiple projects that will allow matching to continue from the point at which the project was previously saved.
Perfect Match can rename artwork from .dat files, and .xml files.
When using SoftList .xml files, Perfect Match will rename your artwork to the 'Short Name' (See Screen Shots)
Instant alternate matches in the match tab using right-click.
Additional settings to help with better matching.
Messages can be shown normally, as tool tips, or turned off completely.

A brief description of the settings tab and matching using Perfect Match

Quote

The settings tab lets you make adjustments to your rom and artwork names to help with matching. If you have a rom named 123Tempest.rom, and trim 3 characters from the left, when the program starts matching it will use Tempest.rom as the name to use as the match name for the rom.

The other side for the Artwork works the same way:
If you have an art file named Tempest123.jpg and trim 3 characters from the right, when the program starts matching it will use Tempest.jpg as the name to use for the match name for the Artwork.

When you switch to the match tab, and start matching, Tempest123 with be shown as the suggested artwork for the rom Tempest123, with a 99% probability of a match since with the settings that you have chosen, they are seen by the match program as an exact match. If the two file names had actually been an exact match (without applying the settings that you chose) they would have been shown as a 100% match.

Given the example above, the match tab would display
RomName | Suggested ArtWork | Match%
123Tempest | Tempest123 | 99.9%

When you select that row to rename, The ARTWORK would be renamed to 123Tempest. Perfect Match NEVER alters the rom names themselves.

You can use the project menu to save a project that you are working on. When you run Perfect Match again, that project will reopen, and everything should be as you left off, including all of the settings, and the Match Tab.

You do not have to save a project. Perfect Match will create a default project when first run, and that is the project that will be used unless you save the default project as something else. Perfect Match ALWAYS save your settings for the current project on exit, whether it be the default project, or a project that you have saved. The current project name is shown in the bottom left corner of the GUI as shown in the screenshots as 'Default'

I should also mention that you can work with more than one artwork folder at a time. Use the 'add' button to add a second (or third etc...) path. The path that is shown in the box is the 'Primary' path. Artwork in the secondary paths are also renamed at the same time, as long as the names in the primary and secondary folders match EXACTLY. In other words, you should be able to rename your boxes, carts, screenshots, etc all at the same time.


Make sure and check out all of the credits by clicking on 'Credits' in the menu Bar.

Nice, I always used the zip version so I've never seen the Installer GUI. Can you post the source?

I made this sometime back but never really used it for anything.
But I liked the idea, so I've kept it as a template for later use.

Thanks! I found the way to remove the progress's border in this code.
