Combo Box - Selection on Show

3 posts in this topic

I have a layered GUI that I'm using to overlap on another window.

No issues there, until now: I added in a combo box, and it looks great with the transparency and all, but the text within the box is selected when the GUI displays. It's nothing critical, but it doesn't look pleasing on the startup and would prefer to just not have the text highlighted.

Is there any way to do this?

I've tried several methods from hiding/showing the combo, controlclicking the combo, etc. to try and deselect the text on startup, but no luck ;)

Is there some sort of $GUI_NOSELECT style I can use and still have the combo work like a dropdown?

I would suggest that you post your code or a working snippet which also shows your issue.

Alas, I understand where you're coming from when someone posts no code in their question, however it wouldn't do any good. I've changed it so that it will layer over a notepad window instead of the program I'm layering over. You'll have to have a notepad window open.

$Module_Combo is the only combo I have.

Really not sure if this example will work as-is, I've cut it from a multi-file program.

$transparency = 205
WinActivate("[CLASS:notepad; INSTANCE:1]")
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:notepad; INSTANCE:1]")
Sleep(100)
$pos = WinGetPos("[CLASS:notepad; INSTANCE:1]")
Global $orgx = $pos[0]
Global $orgy = $pos[1]

Global $MyGUI = GUICreate($GUITitle, 200, 220, $orgx + $Triangle[0] - 5, $orgy + $Triangle[1] + 130, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW), WinGetHandle("[CLASS:notepad; INSTANCE:1]"))

GUISetBkColor(0xB6B6B7)

GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CheckGUI")

DllCall("user32.dll", "bool", "SetWindowPos", "hwnd", $GUITitle, "hwnd", WinGetHandle("[CLASS:notepad; INSTANCE:1]"), "int", $pos[0] + $Triangle[0] - 5, "int", $pos[1] + $Triangle[1] + 130, "int", 200, "int", 200, "uint", 0x0010) ; $SWP_NOACTIVATE
