Group Name not Transparent

Recommended Posts


first of all let me say that I'm new here and started scripting with AutoIt just two days ago, so my knowledge is very limited.

Up 'till now i didn't have any real problems but now something came up I just can't find a solution for, no matter where I search or who i ask.

I wanted to create a nice looking GUI but the groups name refuses to get transparent (see attachement, the background of the text is grey), I tried everything including not using a name and putting a transparent label in the place, but this is then crossed by the groups border.

I really hope someone can show me a nice and easy way to do this right :idea:

Thanks in advance!

Have you tryed


That just sets the transparency for the whole window, not the group. He could try GUICtrlSetColor($Group, 0xFFFFFF) which will make it white. If not white then pick a color that matches.


Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.
