Transparent Checkboxes

4 posts in this topic

I can't apply any style to this checkbox. Only GUICtrlSetFont($hRestart, 8.5, 600, "", "Tahoma") seems to work.

$hGui = GUICreate("gui", 600, 350)

GUICtrlCreatePic("filename", 0, 0, 600, 350, "", $WS_EX_LAYERED)

$hChk = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Bla", 270, 80, 250, 25)

GUICtrlSetBkColor($hRestart, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)

GUICtrlSetFont($hRestart, 8.5, 600, "", "Tahoma")

GUICtrlSetColor($hRestart, 0xffffff)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

How can i use transparent background for checkbox labels ?

You can't apply transparency to standard chechboxes. Trick, make them 17x17, put the text in a lable and make that transparent. If needed, add a command to check the box if label is clicked.

It's not possible, this is a way to do it :

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate("gui", 600, 350)

GUICtrlCreatePic("filename", 0, 0, 600, 350, "", $WS_EX_LAYERED)

$hChk = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("", 270, 80, 14, 14)

$hRestart = GUICtrlCreateLabel("bla", 287, 80)
GUICtrlSetFont($hRestart, 8.5, 600, "", "Tahoma")
;~ GUICtrlSetColor($hRestart, 0xffffff)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($hRestart, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While Sleep(250)

WEnd

Cheers, FireFox.

GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("", 270, 80, 13, 13)
