Flicker Free Labels

Version 1.6

Lately I have been working on my and the demo GUI for it has a lot labels that get updated frequently and really ends up looking like shit when all your labels are flickering. I put this UDF together trying to go by the same format as native GUICtrlCreateLabel(), this way I can go back to previous guis and swap with new Flicker Free Labels. As always feedback is welcome and let me know if you have and problems. Thanks for looking.

Update 6-27

So recently I learned that the stringformat of the GDI+ labels we are creating do not have equal character spaceing and also are not excepting tab keys. This was a nightmare for me and is still being one. I found a good artical here that helped a little but not completely. At the bottom of the page it talks about displaying adjacent text and recomends using GenericTypographic stringformat. I tried it and It is allowing tab keys, but now the align stopped working. And for the life of me I could never figure out how to set all characters to have equal widths, and also a blank space " " measure out to the same width as a char. So if someone knows how plz let me know. For the time being I have the udf using the method that allows tabs(mainly cause of this example I want to show), but I left the orginal stringformat call commented out so if you need your labels aligned center, left, right just uncomment it and comment out the GenericTypographic call. Its located in _GuiCtrlFFLabel_Create().

Some other Benefits

Now I want to go over a couple benifits that the non flickering labels could extend to you that didnt nessasarly jump right out at u at first. To start with lets go over static labels. Majority of the time that you have some data you want to display you will want a it to have a title. The longer your string is the more obvios the flicker becomes so breaking that label up into two lables Title: Data, can reduce flicker significatly. Now I cant sit hear and say that they are getting broke up soley because of flicker cause thats just not always true, but I can definatly say that they are not being left together because of flicker. Having no flicker we can leave the title and data as one if we want. And we dont have to stop there because string length dosnt matter now. We can just as easily put 3 or 4 labels into one if we want reducing are code even more. take a look at the size difference in the examples.

Easier GUI layout was also a benifit (at least for me) that I didnt think of till recenty. I know plenty of people like to layout there GUI manually. Theres also people that would like to but just arnt good at it. Im one of them. I always end wasting to much time starting, adjusting, starting etc.. I love koda, but it can also gobble up my time. The example shows another option. By making all the labels the full width of the GUI, I can then use tabs and StringFormat() to aliagn all my labels. The only coordinates I have to work with is y, the vertical distance between the labels making it no big deal.

Example:

#include "FFLabels.au3"
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Update 12/06/11

  • Added option for NO alignment to text. Need if using tabs
Update 6/27/11
  • Added _GUICtrlFFLabel_Move()
  • Changed color parameters. Any function that excepts ARGB will also except RGB
  • Problem found with character width.
Update 6/21/11
  • Added function to establish default background color (Thanks MrCreatoR)
  • Added Delete function and changed function names (Thanks MrCreatoR)
  • changed default color values so -1 and 0 (black and white) can be used as parameters
  • fixed delete problem again. SetData function was not checking if item was deleted. if you try writing to deleted label like example does nothing should happen
Update 6/24/11
  • Added ability to add Labels to multiple GUI's
  • Labels will now automatically refresh themselves when needed
  • Added new functions _GUICtrlFFLabel_GUISetBkColor (Thanks MrCreatoR) , _GUICtrlFFLabel_SetTextColor
  • Labels will not be redraw if window is minimized. This can save quite a bit of CPU usage. Watch CPU% drop if minimized during examples :huh2:

I wanted to do the transparent backgound but didnt know how lol. Thats why the default color is same color autoit backgound is. Do you know how to make it trans?

Also do your labels not flicker when using $WS_EX_COMPOSITED? cause mine still do..

AFAIK $WS_EX_COMPOSITED is not working on Vista+ operating systems!

Maybe it will work when Aero is disabled but not tested...

Nice, but what about transparent background, like in the original labels?

I tried using _WinAPI_GetSysColor($COLOR_WINDOW) but this is not returning background of GUI i just created..

Thats why the default color is same color autoit backgound is

On my WinXP it's not :huh2:

Do you know how to make it trans?

With your method no, but you can do this:

Func _GetWindowBkColor()
    Local $hBkGUI = GUICreate("", 40, 40, -50, -50)
    Local $nColor = PixelGetColor(30, 30, $hBkGUI)
    GUIDelete($hBkGUI)
    Return "0xFF" & Hex($nColor, 6) 
EndFunc

now use it in the "#region Header and Global Vars"...

Global $nDef_GUI_Bk_Color = _GetWindowBkColor()

and in...

Func _FF_GuiCtrlSetData($iIndex, $sText, $iBackGround = -1)
    If $iBackGround = -1 Or $iBackGround = Default Then $iBackGround = $nDef_GUI_Bk_Color
    ...
EndFunc

Now thats a simple and smart solution! Ive been trying and failing so many other ways. Never thought to just create a temporary gui and grab it manually. Thankyou! I will put that in.

Alright added new BG color check function. I had to change it a little bit cause it would not work for me when trying to create the gui off screen or when the states on enabled. Nobody will ever really notice.

Func _GetWindowBkColor()
    Local $hBkGUI = GUICreate("", 5, 5, 1, 1, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
    GUISetState()
    WinWaitActive($hBkGUI)
    Local $nColor = PixelGetColor(3, 3, $hBkGUI)
    GUIDelete($hBkGUI)
    Return "0xFF" & Hex($nColor, 6)
EndFunc

I like your naming convention better and will change it to that but the bg function doesnt work. must be something with win 7 vs xp..Posted Image The one I posted above is only 5x5 with no boarders. No one will ever notice.

And how about this:

Func __GUICtrlFFLabel_GetWindowBkColor()
    Local $iOpt, $hBkGUI, $nColor
    
    $iOpt = Opt("WinWaitDelay", 0)
    $hBkGUI = GUICreate("", 40, 40)
    WinWait($hBkGUI)
    $nColor = "0xFF" & Hex(PixelGetColor(30, 30, $hBkGUI), 6)
    
    ConsoleWrite($nColor & @CRLF)
    
    GUIDelete($hBkGUI)
    Opt("WinWaitDelay", $iOpt)
    
    Return $nColor
EndFunc

?

Ok, checked on my laptop with Win7, this should work:

Func __GUICtrlFFLabel_GetWindowBkColor()
    Local $iOpt, $hBkGUI, $nColor
    
    $iOpt = Opt("PixelCoordMode", 1)
    $hBkGUI = GUICreate("", 100, 100, -100, -100)
    $nColor = "0xFF" & Hex(PixelGetColor(50, 50, $hBkGUI), 6)
    
    Opt("PixelCoordMode", $iOpt)
    GUIDelete($hBkGUI)
    
    Return $nColor
EndFunc
