Background color on label does not update

7 posts in this topic

I am not able to update the color of a label after it has been set.

Here is just a snippet, I just took fragments of the code

GUICreate("Gui", 500, 500, 0, 0)

$lCityName = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 60, 50, 50)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($lCityName, $white) ;Defined white and black earlier

GUISetState()

While 1

        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN Then
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($lCityName, $black)
    EndIf

Wend

I am able to set the color up top, but not during the loop, any reason why?

Thanks,

BK

works fine so I think something else is wrong.

I think it is more sensible to post exactly the code you are having problems with, code which we can run, and especially don't post code that doesn't show what you are talking about so that we reach a conclusion more efficiently. ( Or in other words, so we don't waste our time:)).

barrikid,

Works for me - does it not work for you? ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$lCityName = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 60, 50, 50)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($lCityName, 0xFF0000)

GUISetState()

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
            GUICtrlSetBkColor($lCityName, 0x0000FF)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

barrikid,

I cannot imagine how Win7 would prevent that script from working. ;)

Have you tried rebooting your machine and then running the script again? :)

I have a hunch it's in the way you declared your colors, of course it's a guess because you didn't post the declarations for the colors.

$Black = 0x000000 is correct, whereas $Black = "0x000000" is incorect.

The colors are already inside ColorConstants.au3 so why not use them? This works fine and all I've done is change your color variables to the correct names as used in the constants file.

#Include<ColorConstants.au3>
#Include<GuiConstants.au3>
GUICreate("Gui", 500, 500, 0, 0)

$lCityName = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 60, 50, 50)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($lCityName, $Clr_White) ;Defined white and black earlier

GUISetState()

While 1

        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN Then
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($lCityName, $Clr_Black)
    EndIf
    If $Msg = -3 Then Exit

Ah, I had

$gui = GUICreate("Test", 500, 700, 0, 0, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))

I took out the BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN), and it worked
