Is it possible to adjust/set your screen resolution via QM?

EDIT* - Solved.

Hi Gindi,

I can't seem to get this to work. The old wallpaper goes away but I don't get a new one. Just a blank screen. I am on XP Pro and QM 2.3.1.2

Is this the correct syntax?

Macro Macro     ?
SetWallpaper("D:\work library\images\tiger woods.bmp")

Correct. Should work if it is bmp. Fails if jpg.

This is better version. Supports center/tile/stretch. Throws error if fails. Does not remove wallpaper if fails.
Function SetWallpaper     ?
;/
function $wpFile [style] ;;style: 0 center, 1 tile, 2 stretch, 3 fit (Win7), 4 fill (Win7)

;Sets desktop wallpaper.

;wpFile - bmp file.
;;;Error if does not exist or is not bmp (Vista/7 also supports jpg).
;;;Use "" to remove wallpaper.


if(!empty(wpFile))
,wpFile=_s.searchpath(wpFile)
,if(!wpFile) end "file does not exist"

lpstr rk="control panel\desktop"

;get current values to restore if fails
str _wp _tw _ws
rget _wp "wallpaper" rk; rget _tw "tilewallpaper" rk; rget _ws "wallpaperstyle" rk

;set style
lpstr rstyle("0") rtile("0")
sel style&255
,case 1 rtile="1"
,case 2 rstyle="2"
,case 3 if(_winver>=0x601) rstyle="6"
,case 4 if(_winver>=0x601) rstyle="10"
rset rstyle "wallpaperstyle" rk; rset rtile "tilewallpaper" rk

;set file
if !SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER 0 wpFile 3)
,;when SPI fails, it removes wallpaper. Restore.
,rset _tw "tilewallpaper" rk; rset _ws "wallpaperstyle" rk
,SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER 0 _wp 3)
,end ES_FAILED

I've been looking on the msdn site trying to find how I can mod the updatede Setwallpaper to take the new 'fill' and 'fit' settings as well.

does anyone know how I can do that?

Here works even if QM process is not admin.

Try other AD_APPLY_x flags.

To see where exactly is the error, remove the err+ line.

this line in SetDesktopWallpaper failed
Function SetDesktopWallpaper     ?
ad.ApplyChanges(__iactivedesktop.AD_APPLY_ALL)


with this error
Error (RT) in SetDesktopWallpaper: 0x80070005, Access is denied.



I have the __iactivedesktop macro made.
the SetWallpaper is the updated code above not the original in the qml file.

Try other AD_APPLY_x flags. They are listed in MSDN but not documented.

now I know what you mean. I tried it on my workstation with 2 monitors (same size) and it works. I exported the folder of macros out and imported them into my laptop with different sized screens and still get the error or nothing happens depending on which AD_APPLY I put into the SetDesktopWallpaper function.

could the problem be that the laptop is running 2 differently sized monitors?

Fit and fill styles can be set through registry too. I updated SetWallpaper function, old version.
