Creates a GUICtrlCreateGroup() with the ability to set the color.

Advanced GUICtrlCreateGroup() with shadows or continue for those interested in a simple GUICtrlCreateGroup() ...

Function:
#include <StringSize.au3>

Func _GUICtrlCreateGroup($sText, $iLeft, $iTop, $iWidth, $iHeight, $bColor = 0x000000)
	Local $aLabel[6] = [5]
	Local $aStringSize = _StringSize($sText)

	$aLabel[1] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Left Line.
	$aLabel[2] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 10, 1) ; Top Left Line.
	GUICtrlCreateLabel(' ' & $sText, $iLeft + 7, $iTop - 6, $aStringSize[2] - 3, 15)
	$aLabel[3] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $aStringSize[2] + 4, $iTop + 1, $iWidth - $aStringSize[2] - 3, 1) ; Top Right Line.
	$aLabel[4] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $iWidth + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Right Line.
	$aLabel[5] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + $iHeight + 1, $iWidth + 1, 1) ; Bottom Line.
	For $i = 1 To $aLabel[0]
		GUICtrlSetBkColor($aLabel[$i], $bColor)
	Next
EndFunc   ;==>_GUICtrlCreateGroup

hello,

thanks for the reply. i had a similar idea. will test a bit around. maybe it is combinable with "_GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString" to get the
text-string length and create flexible top-left and top-right lines.

regards, andy

andygo,

If you want to measure the size of text strings, look at the StringSize UDF in my sig. :)

That was my plan today, :) add StringSize.au3 by Melba23, but andygo you beat me to it. Thanks Melba for suggesting too.

you anyway could do another modification to your function :) if you take a look to a zoomed "original" guictrlcreategroup,
you will see the main-line and a second white line (on normalsize maybe this is for a shadowlook).

If the group name is too short, it's not getting displayed at all:

#include <StringSize.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Test", 200, 200)

	Local $aLabel[6] = [5], $aLabelInner[6] = [5]
	Local $aStringSize = _StringSize($sText)
	$aLabel[1] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Left Line.
	$aLabelInner[1] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 2, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Inner/Outer Left Line.

	GUICtrlCreateLabel(' ' & $sText, $iLeft + 7, $iTop - 6, $aStringSize[2] - 3, 15)
	$aLabel[3] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $aStringSize[2] + 4, $iTop + 1, $iWidth - $aStringSize[2] - 3, 1) ; Top Right Line.

		GUICtrlSetBkColor($aLabelInner[$i], $OutlineColor)
	Next

Any idea how to fix this, besides adding a space after the group name?
