Transparent GIFs not working properly within AutoIt

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi there.

I've been fiddling with this for hours straight, playing around with settings and such on Photoshop and GIMP but to no avail. PNGs wont work, I've tried. Also, my attempts into converting this PNG smoothly into a GIF have proven fruitless; can anyone help me with this? Included are the program files: the test.au3 is the script, and everything else are the images.

logo.png is the image file I actually want to place over the GIF, but since AutoIt does not support PNGs...

EDIT:

When we insert a button via "GuiCtrlCreateButton", is it possible to make it so that the background of the button remains invisible? Currently, the button's background is of the same colour as the "GUISetBkColor()" :/

Thank you for your help!

Works fine, thank you! Also, any comments on the button background issue? :mellow:

This doesn't really seem to work for me. It still gives out the same problem. What I'm trying to fix is that TINY border that gets created around the button, outside the button :)

Eh, thanks for trying though, but I prefer the default windows button without that extra bit :3 I'm not sure if it's possible in AutoIt, though :/ I'd like to retain the animation effects that buttons give :)

$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Sign up", 555, 34, 70, 22)

    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

        Case $btn
            MsgBox(0, "Information", "Button Sign up pressed")

    _GDIPlus_Shutdown()

    $bM = 0

        GUICtrlCreatePic("grass.gif", $bM, 75, 128, 25)

    Until $bM > 856
EndFunc

With the code above, you can easily see that the black background of the GUI is visible through the picture. I'm trying to eliminate that whilst retaining the use of a button. Any ideas? :mellow:

EDIT: Managed to get it "sortof" fixed by setting the control to using no theme instead:

DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle($hCtrl), "wstr", 0, "wstr", 0)

This makes the button lose its shinyness, though :) any other way? :party:

This remove the border, if you want to remove more border then do the button bigger, the Child GUI will hide anything that exced from his edge,
