you have some application that is running that is causing an issue with it. I close down everything you have running except for EG and MPC and give it a go and see what happens.

Actually restoring the mediaplayerclassic plugin from a system backup fixed it. I am not sure if Windows 10 did something with permissions or somehow corrupted the file. But restoring that fixed the problem. That was all I did was restore from a 1 week backup and it worked. Wonder if a Win 10 update modified some permissions?

There are a new set of challenges to overcome when Microsoft releases new builds.

And it has nothing to do with permissions. The issue is that some data that was received via the Windows API and then passed to another portion of the Windows API and it didn't like it.

so here is an example.

if you set a chunk of data to be a 32 bit integer it can hold a number between 0 and 4,294,967,295
and if you set another chunk of data to be a 64 bit integer it can hold a number between 0 and 9,223,372,036,854,775,807

In python an int is an int. in c++ not so much.
So if somewhere in the Windows API they changed the data type for a parameter from a 32 bit int to a 64 bit int. and somewhere alse in the API is function that uses the data got elsewhere but they forgot to update the data type to a 64 bit int.

hence why you are getting an error stating that the number is to large.

Thanks and now I stumbled on problem where all I get is Volume: 0% after updating to Windows 10 build 1903. Is there an easy fix for this problem?

Need a little bit more info on this.

You are getting the volume for what and from where?

From Mediaplayer Classic. Since the update to 1903 the volume just shows 0% now. Same script as first post by me. Only thing that changed is updated Windows from 1809 to 1903.

ok this is what I need you to do. something could have changed with the update that is causing the window matcher to return the wrong handle.

there are 2 lines of code in your script you are going to need to change.

Code: Select all

Find_MPC_Volume_Ctrl=eg.WindowMatcher(u'mpc-hc64.exe', None, u'MediaPlayerClassicW', None, u'msctls_trackbar32', 1, True, 0.0, 0)

hwnd = Find_MPC_Volume_Ctrl()

create a Find Window action and use the cross hairs to target the volume control in MPC. then I want you to apply the changes and close the dialog.

then right click on the action and in the menu click on "Copy as Python".

then go into you script and replace

Code: Select all

Find_MPC_Volume_Ctrl=eg.WindowMatcher(u'mpc-hc64.exe', None, u'MediaPlayerClassicW', None, u'msctls_trackbar32', 1, True, 0.0, 0)
with the copied action. the Find Window action does not return anything. But it stored the information elsewhere in EG. so we want to make sure that storage is empty before running the action. so on the line before the action add this code.

Code: Select all

 del eg.lastFoundWindows[:] 
now I need you to replace the line

Code: Select all

hwnd = Find_MPC_Volume_Ctrl()
with the following code.

Code: Select all

# this is going to simply stop the macro from running and exit the script if FindWindow did not find anything.
if not eg.lastFoundWindows:
    eg.StopMacro()
    eg.Exit()

# get the handle from the storage container.
hwnd = eg.lastFoundWindows[0]

you will end up a code block that looks like this. The action parameters are going to be different but the basic outline is going to be the same.

Code: Select all

del eg.lastFoundWindows[:]
eg.plugins.Window.FindWindow(u'rundll32.exe', u'Speakers Properties', u'#32770', u'', u'msctls_trackbar32', 2, False, 0.0, 0)

if not eg.lastFoundWindows:
    eg.StopMacro()
    eg.Exit()
    
hwnd = eg.lastFoundWindows[0]

Ok here is current code but getting a new error now. Before the event runs I jump to a WindowState script that determines if the Window is in Normal State or Full Screen. I then assign a value called eg.globals.WindowState but with the new script for some reason I have two problems the first is the eg.globals.WindowsState is lost and second problem is hwnd value no longer has a length.
Traceback (most recent call last):

May help if you see the original WindowsState code.

Code: Select all

hwnd = FindWin()

def GetWindowStatus(hwnd):
    showList  = ("None", "Normal", "Minimized", "Maximized")
    placement = GetWindowPlacement(hwnd)
    #unrem the below line to display the placement values that you need for the if placement[4] line
    print placement
   
    if placement[4] == (1920, 0, 5760, 2160):
        return "Fullscreen"
    else:
        return showList[placement[1]]
    
eg.globals.WindowsState = GetWindowStatus(hwnd[0])

print "Windows State = " + eg.globals.WindowsState

do the same thing you did in the first script to the window state script. instead of targeting the volume control target the actual MPC window instead. then paste the python code into place.

also there is a better way of determining if the window state is actually full screen. a window being maximized and a window being full screen are not the same thing. in order to check if a window is fullscreen you need to check and see if the window has a caption bar or not.


I can key something up for you that will work better.

Let me tinker about with it for a bit. I will install MPC and test with a little bit later today.

Have you had a chance yet? If not that is ok I understand people get busy. Just be nice to have my volume show more then 0% again. Thanks really appreciate it.

This is tested and it's 100% working


This is the volume OSD script. There were a few errors in it like the len(hwnd) and hwnd[0] we aready checked if there was any returned windows. and if there isn't stop the macro and exist the script. so after that we then set hwnd from eg.lastFoundWindows[0]
I removed the unneeded code.

Code: Select all


# this is going to seem like a goofy bit of code. what this does is makes sure 
# that eg.globals.WindowsState exists. and if it doesn't then set it to 'Normal'
eg.globals.WindowsState = getattr(eg.globals, 'WindowsState', 'Normal')

# variable fs = fontsize as a string

from eg.WinApi.Dynamic import SendMessage
TBM_GETPOS = 1024

del eg.lastFoundWindows[:]
eg.plugins.Window.FindWindow(u'mpc-hc64.exe', None, u'MediaPlayerClassicW', u'', u'msctls_trackbar32', 1, False, 0.0, 2)
# this is going to simply stop the macro from running and exit the script if FindWindow did not find anything.
if not eg.lastFoundWindows:
   eg.StopMacro()
   eg.Exit()

# get the handle from the storage container.
hwnd = eg.lastFoundWindows[0]

eg.globals.WindowsState = getattr(eg.globals, 'WindowsState', 'Normal')

if eg.globals.WindowsState != "Fullscreen":
    fs = '64'
    mon = 2
    top = 1000
else:
    fs = '128'
    mon = 1
    top = 1800
volume = SendMessage(hwnd, TBM_GETPOS, 0, 0)
osd = "Volume: %i%%"
if volume == 1 :
    volume = 0
    
eg.plugins.EventGhost.ShowOSD(osd % volume, u'0;-' + fs + ';0;0;0;700;0;0;0;238;3;2;1;66;Arial', (255, 255, 255), (0, 0, 0), 5, (0, top), mon, 3.0, True)

and here we have the grabbing of the window state. I shifted to using the Find Window action just like above,, so those mechanics are the same except I am not targeting the volume control.

I do not like pywin32 to much. it has to many goofy issues with it. So insted i grabbed the bull by the horns and used ctypes to access the windows API.

There is one thing that a full screen application does not have.. and that is a border/frame/edge, so we check the style and the style ex for these things and if the window has any of them then it is a "Normal" window. if it has none of them then it is "Fullscreen" window.

I can also put in code that will tell you what monitor the application is playing on as well. so you can set different OSD for it playing fullscreen on a monitor, or normal on a monitor, fullscreen on a TV and normal on a TV.

Let me know if you are interested in that code

I also put into the script all of the various style and style ex constants with a description of what they do.. just for your reference.

Thanks for that code I did find one minor problem and that was in my detect window I had to select detect hidden also as when it is in fullscreen the controls are hidden so the code was exiting. Took me a bit to figure out the problem but I did and fixed that.
