Button Update

3 posts in this topic

Ok, Attached is a script that I have been working on and updating for over a year. Now I want to make some updates but one of the things that I am trying to do is not working. I have a GUI with a button that opens a Color pallet window. I want the button to change to the color that has been chosen as well as write the color code to an ini file. It currently writes to the ini but will not update the button color. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Jon

Line 497 - 507 is where the button is

JonCross,

Here is one way you could do it: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <Misc.au3>

$color = 0xFF0000

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

$Button_C = GUICtrlCreateButton("Attention Color", 200, 80)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button_C
            ; Get a return value from the function
            $iRetColour = _ShowChoice($hGUI, $color, 2, _ChooseColor(2, 0xFF0000, 2, $hGUI),"")
            ; If it is not the Cancel code, then change the color variable
            If $iRetColour <> -1 Then $color = $iRetColour
            ; Change the button backcolour
            GUICtrlSetBkColor($Button_C, $color)
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Func _ShowChoice($hGUI, $color, $Type, $Choose, $sMessage)
    Local $cr
    If $Choose <> -1 Then
            ;IniWriteSection($Server&"\Settings.ini", "Attention", "Key="&$Choose)
    EndIf
    ; Return the value from the _ChooseColor function
    Return $Choose
EndFunc

WARNING: Colouring a button removes all user formatting and sets it to the basic button style. Worse, it makes the button trap the enter key regardless of whether the key has focus. ;) This is a long-standing and well-known bug and will not be fixed any time soon as it is so deeply buried in the basic GUI code. I would strongly recommend NOT changing the colour of the button, but perhaps colouring a label close by or even underneath - something like this: :shocked:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <Misc.au3>

$color = 0xFF0000

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

$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 195, 75, 90, 40)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
$Button_C = GUICtrlCreateButton("Attention Color", 200, 80, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button_C
            $iRetColour = _ShowChoice($hGUI, $color, 2, _ChooseColor(2, 0xFF0000, 2, $hGUI),"")
            If $iRetColour <> -1 Then $color = $iRetColour
            GUICtrlSetBkColor($hLabel, $color)
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Func _ShowChoice($hGUI, $color, $Type, $Choose, $sMessage)
    Local $cr
    If $Choose <> -1 Then
            ;IniWriteSection($Server&"\Settings.ini", "Attention", "Key="&$Choose)
    EndIf
    Return $Choose
EndFunc

All clear? :)
