Creates a GUICtrlCreateGroup() with the ability to set the color.

or continue for those interested in a simple GUICtrlCreateGroup() ...

Function:

#include <StringSize.au3>

Func _GUICtrlCreateGroup($sText, $iLeft, $iTop, $iWidth, $iHeight, $bColor = 0x000000)
    Local $aLabel[6] = [5]
    Local $aStringSize = _StringSize($sText)

    $aLabel[1] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Left Line.
    $aLabel[2] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 10, 1) ; Top Left Line.
    GUICtrlCreateLabel(' ' & $sText, $iLeft + 7, $iTop - 6, $aStringSize[2] - 3, 15)
    $aLabel[3] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $aStringSize[2] + 4, $iTop + 1, $iWidth - $aStringSize[2] - 3, 1) ; Top Right Line.
    $aLabel[4] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $iWidth + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Right Line.
    $aLabel[5] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + $iHeight + 1, $iWidth + 1, 1) ; Bottom Line.
    For $i = 1 To $aLabel[0]
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($aLabel[$i], $bColor)
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>_GUICtrlCreateGroup

Func _GUICtrlCreateGroupEx($sText, $iLeft, $iTop, $iWidth, $iHeight, $bColor = 0xC0C0C0, $OutlineColor = 0xFFFFFF)
    Local $aLabel[6] = [5], $aLabelInner[6] = [5]
    Local $aStringSize = _StringSize($sText)
    $aLabel[1] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Left Line.
    $aLabelInner[1] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 2, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Inner/Outer Left Line.
    $aLabel[2] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 10, 1) ; Top Left Line.
    $aLabelInner[2] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 2, $iTop + 2, 10 - 1, 1) ; Top Inner/Outer Left Line.
    GUICtrlCreateLabel(' ' & $sText, $iLeft + 7, $iTop - 6, $aStringSize[2] - 3, 15)
    $aLabel[3] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $aStringSize[2] + 4, $iTop + 1, $iWidth - $aStringSize[2] - 3, 1) ; Top Right Line.
    $aLabelInner[3] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $aStringSize[2] + 4, $iTop + 2, $iWidth - $aStringSize[2] - 3, 1) ; Top Inner/Outer Right Line.
    $aLabel[4] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $iWidth + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Right Line.
    $aLabelInner[4] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $iWidth + 2, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight + 1) ; Right Inner/Outer Line.
    $aLabel[5] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + $iHeight + 1, $iWidth + 1, 1) ; Bottom Line.
    $aLabelInner[5] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + $iHeight + 2, $iWidth + 2, 1) ; Bottom Inner/Outer Line.
    For $i = 1 To $aLabel[0]
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($aLabel[$i], $bColor)

hello,

thanks for the reply. i had a similar idea. will test a bit around. maybe it is combinable with "_GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString" to get the

text-string length and create flexible top-left and top-right lines.

regards, andy

andygo,

If you want to measure the size of text strings, look at the StringSize UDF in my sig. :)

That was my plan today, :) add StringSize.au3 by Melba23, but andygo you beat me to it. Thanks Melba for suggesting too.

you anyway could do another modification to your function :) if you take a look to a zoomed "original" guictrlcreategroup,

you will see the main-line and a second white line (on normalsize maybe this is for a shadowlook).

If the group name is too short, it's not getting displayed at all:

#include <StringSize.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Test", 200, 200)
_GUICtrlCreateGroupEx("short", 5, 15, 150, 150)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case -3
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _GUICtrlCreateGroupEx($sText, $iLeft, $iTop, $iWidth, $iHeight, $bColor = 0xC0C0C0, $OutlineColor = 0xFFFFFF)
    Local $aLabel[6] = [5], $aLabelInner[6] = [5]
    Local $aStringSize = _StringSize($sText)
    $aLabel[1] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Left Line.
    $aLabelInner[1] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 2, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Inner/Outer Left Line.
    $aLabel[2] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + 1, 10, 1) ; Top Left Line.
    $aLabelInner[2] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 2, $iTop + 2, 10 - 1, 1) ; Top Inner/Outer Left Line.
    GUICtrlCreateLabel(' ' & $sText, $iLeft + 7, $iTop - 6, $aStringSize[2] - 3, 15)
    $aLabel[3] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $aStringSize[2] + 4, $iTop + 1, $iWidth - $aStringSize[2] - 3, 1) ; Top Right Line.
    $aLabelInner[3] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $aStringSize[2] + 4, $iTop + 2, $iWidth - $aStringSize[2] - 3, 1) ; Top Inner/Outer Right Line.
    $aLabel[4] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $iWidth + 1, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight) ; Right Line.
    $aLabelInner[4] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + $iWidth + 2, $iTop + 1, 1, $iHeight + 1) ; Right Inner/Outer Line.
    $aLabel[5] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + $iHeight + 1, $iWidth + 1, 1) ; Bottom Line.
    $aLabelInner[5] = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', $iLeft + 1, $iTop + $iHeight + 2, $iWidth + 2, 1) ; Bottom Inner/Outer Line.
    For $i = 1 To $aLabel[0]
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($aLabel[$i], $bColor)
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($aLabelInner[$i], $OutlineColor)
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>_GUICtrlCreateGroupEx

Any idea how to fix this, besides adding a space after the group name?
