Text issing in label

Recommended Posts

Why is the text missing when I apply the $SS_ETCHEDFRAME style and not before. Thanks

Func Example()

For $i = 0 to 16
    $test[$i] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("label" & $i, 125, $y, 100, 20, $SS_ETCHEDFRAME)
    GUICtrlSetCursor($test[$i], $cursor[$i])
    GUICtrlSetTip($test[$i], $tip[$i])
    $y += 30

    While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I believe Deathbringer is correct. :P

However, there is a simple workaround by creating a disabled background label to show the frame and then putting an active label over the top to hold the text. Try changing the creation loop in your script to read like this:

For $i = 0 to 16
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 123, $y - 2, 104, 24, $SS_ETCHEDFRAME)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
    $test[$i] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("label" & $i, 125, $y, 100, 20);, $SS_ETCHEDFRAME)
    GUICtrlSetCursor($test[$i], $cursor[$i])
    GUICtrlSetTip($test[$i], $tip[$i])
    $y += 30

and you get what you wanted - or at least pretty close to it. :shifty:

I hope that is of some help. :x
