WinSetTrans Bug?

8 posts in this topic

K, does anyone know a different function/UDF for making a transparent window?

The WinSetTrans function causes to much lag.

Or does anyone know some form of speed script to speed up my program, while using the WinSetTrans?

Kalin,

Just because a function does not do what you want does not mean there is a bug. ;)

If you want a transparent GUI, how about this: :)

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

HotKeySet("ESC", "_Exit")

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_LAYERED)
GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Click on the text to drag this transparent GUI" & @CRLF & "Press ESC to exit", 10, 10)

_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hGUI, 0xABCDEF, 250)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
            _SendMessage($hGUI, $WM_SYSCOMMAND, 0xF012, 0)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Any better? ;)

Kalin,

I take it you want no help in the future then? Because with that attitude, that is the likely result. :)

May I suggest a change of attitude PDQ? ;)

The other guys are giving you a hard time for you are expressing yourself in a manner that some would take as rude. Just a heads up for you to think about....

I don't honestly see why.

But OK.
