Disabled GUICtrlCreateList control isn't gray?

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm sure this is straight forward, but I can't find it with a search of the forums. Sorry...

I create a GUI with several controls including Labels, Inputs and Lists. I then disable the controls until an item is chosen from a Combo. At that time, I enable certain controls based on the selection made from the Combo control. This all works fine.

However, when I disable the control created with GUICtrlCreateList it doesn't turn gray. The control appears to be disabled, the color just does not change to gray like the other controls. Here's the code to disable:

$hList = GUICtrlCreateList("", 90, 76, 70, 60, BitOR($LBS_EXTENDEDSEL,$WS_VSCROLL))

.

.

.

GUICtrlSetState($hList, $GUI_DISABLE)

Can someone tell me what I'm missing?

Thank you!

Larry

LarryK,

Edit controls just do not turn grey when disabled. :graduated:

You could always do it yourself if you really want to:

GUICtrlSetBkColor($hList, 0xC4C4C4)

But do not forget to turn it back to the normal colour when you re-enable it. :(

Melba23,

Thank you for the insight. I am still a little confused because the GUICtrlCreateInput get's grayed out when disabled. Isn't it an edit field?

I will do the manual graying so it looks correct.

Thanks again!

LarryK,

Mine do not. For both Input and Edit controls just the edges and text turn grey, the background does not change. :graduated:
