Rebar text colour problem

Recommended Posts


Im looking to figure out how to have the text of an inputbox on a rebar proper black and not the grayed out colour it is by default. Iv tried using a label but the label wont stay in position when i resize the rebar.

heres some code from the help file that demonstrates what im on about here. (Iv remarked the offending line of code)

p.s. im actually using an edit control as an inputbox but the code bellow shows the same problem.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiReBar.au3>
#include <GuiToolBar.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

$Debug_RB = False

Global $iMemo


Func _Main()
    Local $hgui, $btnExit, $hReBar, $hToolbar, $hInput
    Local Enum $idNew = 1000, $idOpen, $idSave, $idHelp

    $hgui = GUICreate("Rebar", 400, 396, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX))

    ; create the rebar control

    $iMemo = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 2, 100, 396, 250, $WS_VSCROLL)
    GUICtrlSetFont($iMemo, 10, 400, 0, "Courier New")

    ; create a toolbar to put in the rebar
    $hToolbar = _GUICtrlToolBar_Create($hgui, BitOR($TBSTYLE_FLAT, $CCS_NORESIZE, $CCS_NOPARENTALIGN))

    ; Add standard system bitmaps
    Switch _GUICtrlToolbar_GetBitmapFlags($hToolbar)
        Case 0
            _GUICtrlToolbar_AddBitmap($hToolbar, 1, -1, $IDB_STD_SMALL_COLOR)
        Case 2
            _GUICtrlToolbar_AddBitmap($hToolbar, 1, -1, $IDB_STD_LARGE_COLOR)

    ; Add buttons
    _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton($hToolbar, $idNew, $STD_FILENEW)
    _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton($hToolbar, $idOpen, $STD_FILEOPEN)
    _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton($hToolbar, $idSave, $STD_FILESAVE)
    _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton($hToolbar, $idHelp, $STD_HELP)

    ; create a input box to put in the rebar
    $hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input control", 0, 0, 120, 20)

    ;add band containing the control
    _GUICtrlReBar_AddBand($hReBar, GUICtrlGetHandle($hInput), 120, 200, "Colour Me Black !:");  <<<<< This is the part im having trouble with :(

    ; add band containing the control to the begining of rebar
    _GUICtrlReBar_AddToolBarBand($hReBar, $hToolbar, "", 0)

    $btnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 150, 360, 100, 25)
    GUICtrlSetState($btnExit, $GUI_DEFBUTTON)
    GUICtrlSetState($btnExit, $GUI_FOCUS)


    _GUICtrlRebar_SetBandStyleBreak($hReBar, 1)

    MemoWrite("========== Bar Color ==========")
    MemoWrite("Previous BK Color..: " & _GUICtrlRebar_SetBKColor($hReBar, Int(0x00008B)))
    MemoWrite("BK Color...........: " & _GUICtrlRebar_GetBKColor($hReBar))
    MemoWrite("Previous Text Color: " & _GUICtrlRebar_SetTextColor($hReBar, Int(0xFF5555)))
    MemoWrite("Text Color.........: " & _GUICtrlRebar_GetTextColor($hReBar))

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $btnExit
EndFunc   ;==>_Main

; Write message to memo
Func MemoWrite($sMessage = "")
    GUICtrlSetData($iMemo, $sMessage & @CRLF, 1)
EndFunc   ;==>MemoWrite

any suggestions ?
