GUI background image

10 posts in this topic

Would someone tell me what the problem with this code is? I can't get the image into the GUI background. Thanks...

Global $hGuiWin = GUICreate ( "Contacts DB", 920, 760)
GUISetBkColor (0x000000, $hGuiWin )
GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & '\Images\DB.png', 0, 0, 898, 747)
MsgBox(1, "title", @Error) ; Returns 1
MsgBox(1, "title", @ScriptDir & '\Images\DB.png') ; Says path is correct
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Try BMPs or JPGs instead of PNGs.

Try this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
Global $hGuiWin = GUICreate ( "Contacts DB", 920, 660)
GUISetBkColor (0x000000, $hGuiWin )
GUICtrlCreatePic('c:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Examples\GUI\mslogo.jpg', 0, 0, 0, 0)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    Do
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

Modify the path to the image if needed.

ok, got the logo then I used your script with the full path and it worked. Why the ", 0, 0, 0, 0". Thanks for the help.

The image is loading, but when I place "input" controls on the image, I cannot select them unless I tab to the control. The cursor does not change to an Ibeam as it would normally. What is the problem?

It says in the help file to make sure that if the image is the background for a GUI to add the picture last, after all other controls have been added. Also make sure you're using the line GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) for the image control.

I had GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) in the code, but evidently located in the wrong place; moved it just after the picture and now things are working. So the question is not, if this disables it, how is it enabled if you don't use the handle?

-1 indicates the control that was created last before you set it's state. You could just as easily given that pic control a variable name and referenced that instead of the -1

$hPic_background = GUICtrlCreatePic("c:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Examples\GUI\mslogo.jpg", 0, 0, 0, 0)
;; create more controls here
GUICtrlSetState($hPic_background, $GUI_DISABLE)

Then you could set the state any time after the control is created even if you create other controls between the 2 lines.

That works for me, thanks...
