Try some experiments with _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes(). See help file.

:D

the prob with _WinAPI_AlphaBlend() is that i still want to be able to see the other screens under my gui when i use the transparent thing but with _WinAPI_AlphaBlend() it makes it so u see the gray gui

You need the latest Beta version or search the forums where you will find many copies of the function.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

epicfail, you could say thanks or something.

:D

Well, I liked your script! :D

Two minor changes though:

1. Requires standard WinAPI.au3 from Beta, not WinAPIEx.au3

2. $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE can't be used because there's not 'X' window control visible.

This runs (Beta) with the include fixed and the button used to close it:

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

$hForm = GUICreate('', 800, 600, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP)
GUICtrlCreatePic(@WindowsDir & '\Web\Wallpaper\Ascent.jpg', 0, 0, 800, 600, -1, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG)

$hMain = GUICreate('', 800, 600, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_LAYERED, $hForm)
GUISetBkColor(0xABABAB)
$ctrlButton = GUICtrlCreateButton('CLOSE', 365, 560, 70, 23)
GUICtrlCreateEdit('', 40, 40, 720, 503)

_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hMain, 0xABABAB, 0, $LWA_COLORKEY)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_MOVE, 'WM_MOVE')

WinSetTrans($hForm, '', 127)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hForm)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hMain)

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case $ctrlButton
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func WM_MOVE($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    WinMove($hMain, '', BitAND($lParam, 0xFFFF), BitShift($lParam, 16))
    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc   ;==>WM_MOVE

:D

1. As I understood the OP does not work in Beta.

2. $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE also works when you press the ESC key (it just example).

:D
