Keep transparent label on top

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

Is there any "simple" way to keep the label on top, while updating progress control underneath? It seems progress steals "top most" when updated:

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

$Gui = GUICreate('', 150, 20, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP)
$GcProgress = GUICtrlCreateProgress(0, 0, 150, 20)
$GcLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel('progress', 0, 3, 150, 14, $SS_CENTER, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)
GUISetState()

For $i = 1 To 100
    GUICtrlSetData($GcProgress, $i)
    Sleep(30)
Next
Sleep(1000)

Exit

I want only a small progress (hence popup window) to display packing/unpacking archive progress with archives name on top.

this is the way i do it. yea its not got the fancy progress bar, but it doesnt flicker and it always stays on top... just remeber to update the progress bar first then the label....

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 625, 445, 193, 125)

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(48, 88, 353, 65,Default)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x00FF00)

        DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), "wstr", " ", "wstr", " ")
        GUICtrlSetStyle(-1, 1)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label is on top", 80, 96, 116, 49)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor($Label1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)


GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

GUICtrlSetData($Progress1,0)
for $ct=0 to 100
    GUICtrlSetData($Progress1,$ct)
    GUICtrlSetData($Label1,"Label is on top "& $ct)
    sleep(50)
Next

sleep(2000)
Exit
