Re: Update Manifest in Executable

I'm just pointing out that setting the DPI aware flag in the manifest does not make an app DPI aware and the screen shot you posted clearly shows that simply setting the flag does not force things to scale properly. Yes, I agree, but it can be still used for "some" old apps or for PerMoni...

Re: Update Manifest in Executable

Hi Paul, The main goal is to add the DPIaware Manifest, if needed, for example for old apps made blurry with windows automatic resizing: Example below with ResHacker 3.6.0 which looks blurry here with a 175% zoom on windows 10. It is better after adding DpiAware in the Manifest https://i.ibb.co/k5Z7...

Re: Extract Icon from Dll/exe at non standard size(WINDOWS ONLY)

Indeed it works better with the right buffer size, thanks fryquez I just tried it with Paul's addition with windows 7 in VMware and I get the same result. I checked with IconsExtract , under windows 7, the 8th icon is the exclamation mark. The computer icon is the 10th. So not the same position of t...

Re: Extract Icon from Dll/exe at non standard size(WINDOWS ONLY)

Extracting the icon at runtime was however a good idea It was just the path that was not good, explorer.exe is in windows folder (%WINDIR%) in all windows versions. A small addition to the procedure to pass only the filename or possibly correct the path, if the filename exists in %Path% Prototype.i ...

Re: How do I get #WM_QUIT on reboot?

I found this in Shutdown Changes for Windows Vista Note that the system does not allow console applications or applications without a visible window to cancel shutdown. Try with this code, based on celtic88's code , to Prevent System Shutdown Prototype.b ShutdownBlockReasonCreate(hwnd.i,pwszReason.p...

Re: IceDesign (New) modern GUI designer

Can this output dpi aware code (at least even in its simplest form)? E.g. for a discussion look here: https://www.purebasic.fr/english/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=70344 In the settings, there is an option "Enable DPI Aware Executable" to write this flag for the compilation options. Enable DP...

Re: IceDesign (New) modern GUI designer

the source code can contain hidden elements located on top of each other, as well as elements from different windows that can be called from a function, that is, located anywhere in the code. It will not be clear which window they belong to. I agree that importing from a .pb or .pbf source can be t...

Re: IceDesign (New) modern GUI designer

@AZJIO , In family, I could not answer you yesterday I better understand what you mean. it's an original idea, not usual but an interesting concept. If I want to do the import function, I think it should be done from the PB source directly. Even if, as you say, it may be difficult to analyze the cod...

Re: IceDesign (New) modern GUI designer

For those who have already downloaded version 1.3.4,
I have silently updated, to fix a small bug if the control name is longer than 40 characters, which should be quite rare.

Re: IceDesign (New) modern GUI designer

Hi, I've been a bit focused on the subject lately but I should slow down a bit now. If I don't want my wife to kill me :lol: It's sure that importing from a PB code would be a great plus. But the syntactic reading is probably not so easy to do. Do you have any sample of lexer codes as a starting poi...
