TCP Slider

Recommended Posts


I want to set this image up to another gui via TCP so I can control the opacity of the image on my laptop with the image on my desktop.

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Opt ("MustDelcareVars", 1)

Global Const $AC_SRC_ALPHA = 1

Global $pici, $picw, $data

$data = 255
$picw = GUICreate("Picture", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, -1, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST,$WS_EX_LAYERED))

$pici = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@ScriptDir & "\yeahtoy.png")
SetBitMap($picw, $pici, $data)




Func WM_NCHITTEST($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
  if ($hWnd = $picw) and ($iMsg = $WM_NCHITTEST) then Return $HTCAPTION

Func SetBitmap($picw, $hImage, $iOpacity)
  Local $hScrDC, $hMemDC, $hBitmap, $hOld, $pSize, $tSize, $pSource, $tSource, $pBlend, $tBlend
