Images on Buttons. Broken?

Recommended Posts


I can't seem to load an image onto a button. Are there special requirements for the size or type that are different than for GUICtrlCreatePic?

Here's the code with a button which SHOULD have an image on it. GUICtrlCreatePic works fine. I've tried JPG,BMP,GIF with the button. No luck yet. Any ideas?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

$pic_path = "path/to/image"

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 400, 500)

$hPic = GUICtrlCreatePic($pic_path, 10, 10, 380, 380)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Boo", 10, 400, 80, 80, $BS_BITMAP)
GUICtrlSetImage($hButton, $pic_path)


While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $hPic
            MsgBox(0, "Hi!", "You clicked the picture")
        Case $hButton
            MsgBox(0, "Hi!", "You clicked the button")

Ahh, it works with BMP files. I wonder if this could be added to the help file, possibly in the GUICtrlCreateButton page? or a note on GUICtrlSetImage.

This topic can now be closed, but may be handy as future reference to other newcomers who stumble at the same thing.
