Displaying text, labels, config files, OH MY!

Recommended Posts

Guest Beakman

Hey guys, I have a few questions, answer what you wish. :-P I was wondering I there is a way to make labels over another application. To be more specific, there will be a game in full screen mode and I want a (transparent) label to overlap the game displaying a string variable or something. It doesnt necessarily need to be a label, just text overlapping the current application, while that application still playable? Also, is this possible for the other GUI things like buttons? Also, there anyways to input variables, like numbers or strings?

Another thing, is there a way to declare variables from lines in a text document or something?

Like a config file?

Example: blah.text consists of:

Hello

Blah

hey

Then I could do something like

$one = first line from text document

$two = 2nd line from text document

$three = 3rd line from text document

I appreciate any help. Thanks.

Yes. You have two options, which I will explain.

This is from Larry:

Send("#r")
If Not WinWait("Run","",5) Then Exit
$hWnd = WinGetHandle("Run")
$x = DLLCall("user32.dll","int","GetDC","hwnd",$hWnd)
DLLCall("gdi32.dll","int","TextOut","int",$x[0],"int",0,"int",0,"str","Larry Rocks!!!","int",14)
DLLCall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseDC","int",$x[0])

Also, is this possible for the other GUI things like buttons? Also, there anyways to input variables, like numbers or strings?

Yes. This is from Valik...:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Main()

Func Main()
    Send("#r")
    WinWait("Run")
    Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle("Run")
    Local $hRealButton = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", "Button4")
    
    Local $aControl = ControlGetPos($hWnd, "", $hRealButton)
    
    ControlHide($hWnd, "", $hRealButton)
    
    GUICreate("Blah", $aControl[2], $aControl[3], $aControl[0], $aControl[1], $WS_CHILD, -1, $hWnd)
    Local $hFakeButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("My Browse", 0, 0, $aControl[2], $aControl[3])
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    
    
    While WinExists($hWnd)
        Local $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $msg = $hFakeButton Then
            MsgBox(4096, "", "My Button!")
            ControlClick($hWnd, "", $hRealButton)
        EndIf
    WEnd
EndFunc; Main()

Notice the button Browse is now "MyBrowse"?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Yes, make an array. There is a function called _FileReadToArray() ...

EDIT: Also, if you want the newly created window to stay on top of the game window, don't for get to "WinSetOnTop" the newly created window.
