Recommended Posts

nick21

Ok, I have been trying and looking around. I want to make the GUI 100% transparent, but leave the buttons,gui image normal so I can see them.

This is what it looks like.

I just want to gui border, and top bar gone, so it will just display the picture and buttons (if I want to move them around).

Thank You,

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 128, 192, 201, 65, BitOR($WS_GROUP,$WS_BORDER))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
WinSetTrans($Form1,"",170)

Unless I misunderstand, I don't see the relevance of posts #2 and #3.

To make the parent gui transparent but not the child window you could create a mask for the parent so that only the child is visible. That won't work without some extra work if you want to move the child around in the parent, although if the parent is not visible moving the child around will be confusing anyway.

If you just want the controls on the parent to be visible but not the rest of the window to be seen then that is a bit easier and MrCreatoR has a udf for it in example scripts.


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.

:D nick21,

Like martin, I am unsure exactly what you are looking for.

If you want to have an inage of the "EndProgram - MayaStartUpWnd" GUI overlaid with your own buttons, then this might help:

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

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 400, 350, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP)

$hPic = GUICtrlCreatePic("Your_Image_Here", 0, 0, 400, 350)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

$hEnd_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("End Now", 210, 290, 80, 40)
$hCan_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 300, 290, 80, 40)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hCan_Button
            MsgBox(0, "Message", "Cancelling")
            Exit
        Case $hEnd_Button
            MsgBox(0, "Message", "Ending")
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd

if neither of us is close, please give us a bit more of a hint as to your requirements.

Melba23, that worked perfect. Thank you to everyone for helping me out, in getting this to work. I know some Autoit stuff but don't know a lot.
