alternating background color edit control

5 posts in this topic

Is it possible to have every other line have a gray background color? Settings the background color sets the whole control and that doesn't really help. I'm trying to create a log of sorts and it would be more user friendly if alternating lines were colored differently.

Thanks,

Drew

You can try this:

$label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Example",0,0,50,20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($label1(0xd8d8d8) ;a light grey color

But you can also search in the help file. :)

Not really what I'm talking about. Unless you are suggesting creating a label within an edit control.

drewtown,

As far as I know the only control that can easily be set to have alternating colour lines is a ListView. I do not see why you could not use that as a log. Just pay attention to how you insert the data - you will have to create a new item for each entry.

Give it a go and come back if you need help. :)

do you mean a background color of a input control?
