Capturing window drug and resize

Postby TMSxEventGhost » Fri Sep 30, 2016 10:11 am

I need to capture when windows got resized or drugged (I want to lay them together in a particular way), however, to do this we need to use winApi like SetWinEventHook.

Fortunately those api are ported to python by PyHook and already used by mouse event plugin

We need for example to listen to Windows messages to get resizing event, as explained here

I tired to incorporate this in my own plugin but because my knowledge in python is shallow I get like ton of errors related to threading:

Code: Select all
..\EventGhost\eg\Classes\ Runtime Warning: tp_compare didn't return -1 or -2 for exception
  if resultCode == WAIT_OBJECT_0:
Traceback (most recent call last) (1722):
  File "..\EventGhost\eg\Classes\", line 319, in __DoOneEvent
    if resultCode == WAIT_OBJECT_0:
TypeError: an integer is required
Exception in thread ActionThread:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "threading.pyc", line 532, in __bootstrap_inner
  File "threading.pyc", line 484, in run

This is a brief of what I did in the plugin:

Code: Select all
import pyHook
import cpyHook
import HookManager

class Test(eg.ActionBase):
    def __call__(self):
        print "dose nothing"

    def Hok(self):
        cpyHook.cSetHook(hc.WH_MOUSE_LL, self.Res)

    def Res(self, msg, x, y, data, flags, time, hwnd, window_name):
        print "working"

Where latter on i will listen to 'WH_CALLWNDPROC' message for resizing events as mentioned in the url above.

Any help is appreciated how to incorporate this stuff, since my knowledge here is limited.

I just put all PyHook files in the same folder of the plugin, otherwise it will not "see" cpyHook.
