Pseudo Aero Look for WinXP (Glass Effect)

Recommended Posts

Actually, I do not work with WinXP but by chance I discovered an effect.

This is experimentell only and not fully implemented!

Aero must be disabled (will done by script) on Vista+ os!

If you have the classic theme activate adjust -52 to -38 in _WinAPI_BitBlt($memDC, 0, 0, $iW, $iH, $hGUI_ZoomDC, 0, -52, 0x00CC0020) lines!

Btw, how can I check whether classical or Luna theme is activated?

Limitations:

  • only updates when window is moved
  • no transparent labels
  • relatively slow
Screenshot, short AVI video and optimized version by eukalyptus here: AutoIt.de

Maybe this effect comes 4 years too late...

Nice Example UEZ ! :D

Did you look at _WinAPI_GetCurrentThemeName() for get the name of the current visual styles ?

@wakillon: thanks for the hint. Code updated in post#1.

Btw, eukalyptus optimized the code whereas you don't need to check the theme to display the effect properly in the window (link in post#1)!

      Just press the lmb and move your mouse. When lmb is released you can adjust the size of the window by dragging the white rectangle to any direction. Rmb will move the marked area.
      Press ESC to get the coordinates of the marked region.
      If you have any improvements, please post it here.
       
      Tested on Win10 x64 only.

      Hey, All!
       
      I was looking into the help file at all the drawing utilities and I was wondering if you draw a translucent line that follows your cursor. Upon looking for ideas I came across this thread (1.0) and saw UEZ's response. I also came across another post that UEZ replied to and found this reply (1.1) where he shows how you can draw on the desktop. This is what I'm looking for however I'd still like to be able to interact with a designated application and have the line/curve/vector passively follow it. Obviously we don't move our cursor very linearly so it would have to be able to draw on vectors. Am I over complicating this? 
      Any ideas or starting points I should look more into?

      I've encountered a problem with a single file where I cannot retrieve it's Date-time. So far my code has worked well for over 30 files, but this one is a mystery I cannot debug myself due to insufficient Au3 knowledge.
      In line 11 "_Date_Time_FileTimeToArray" is called and for this particular file it sets the @error to 10. I don't know what that error code means, but it's not set by the _Date functions themselves I think.
      Overall, it could be a problem caused by any of the functions below, how can I properly debug this? / Does anybody know a what's causing this?
      _WinAPI_CreateFile() / _Date_Time_GetFileTime() / _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray()
      Func _SetFileTimes($sFilePath) Local $monthNumber[13] = ["", "January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "Juny", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"] Local $dayNumber[7] = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"] Local $fHandle = _WinAPI_CreateFile($sFilePath, 2, 2) ; read-only ; may NOT return a valid date for some reason!

      _GetUnixTime returned the year 1601 start date, showing that $fModTime is probably equal 0. (But Why?)
      The file reports these dates in Explorer, it's on local NTFS drive:

      Hello,
      I am making a program where the button is an image that "changes" when specific conditions are fullfilled. Problem is that these images have different dimensions and when a smaller picture is displayed over a bigger one both will be seen, therefore i would like the images to be hidden, invincible or, alternatively, deleted.
      I have tried using _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear() with no luck
      However that might just be me not using it right as im quite new to autoit
      Here is the code if you want to test run it:
      Thanks to everyone helping!

      Hi Guys,
       
      I`m trying to record with my webcam in 5s intervalls and do some stuff between starting to record and stoping.
      I took code from here: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/27925-webcam-example/
      and took what looked relevant to me.
      I use 3 different files:
       Is called WMS.au3 and contains all the constants for the dll calls is called rec.au3 and does all necessary dll calls to start a webcam recording to a file Is called stopcam.exe and does the dll calls to stop recording into a file WMS.au3  :
      $WM_CAP_START = 0x400 $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START = $WM_CAP_START +100 $WM_CAP_PAL_SAVEA = $WM_CAP_START + 81 $WM_CAP_PAL_SAVEW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 81 $WM_CAP_UNICODE_END = $WM_CAP_PAL_SAVEW $WM_CAP_ABORT = $WM_CAP_START + 69 $WM_CAP_DLG_VIDEOCOMPRESSION = $WM_CAP_START + 46 $WM_CAP_DLG_VIDEODISPLAY = $WM_CAP_START + 43 $WM_CAP_DLG_VIDEOFORMAT = $WM_CAP_START + 41 $WM_CAP_DLG_VIDEOSOURCE = $WM_CAP_START + 42 $WM_CAP_DRIVER_CONNECT = $WM_CAP_START + 10 $WM_CAP_DRIVER_DISCONNECT = $WM_CAP_START + 11 $WM_CAP_DRIVER_GET_CAPS = $WM_CAP_START + 14 $WM_CAP_DRIVER_GET_NAMEA = $WM_CAP_START + 12 $WM_CAP_DRIVER_GET_NAMEW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 12 $WM_CAP_DRIVER_GET_VERSIONA = $WM_CAP_START + 13 $WM_CAP_DRIVER_GET_VERSIONW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 13 $WM_CAP_EDIT_COPY = $WM_CAP_START + 30 $WM_CAP_END = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_END $WM_CAP_FILE_ALLOCATE = $WM_CAP_START + 22 $WM_CAP_FILE_GET_CAPTURE_FILEA = $WM_CAP_START + 21 $WM_CAP_FILE_GET_CAPTURE_FILEW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 21 $WM_CAP_FILE_SAVEASA = $WM_CAP_START + 23 $WM_CAP_FILE_SAVEASW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 23 $WM_CAP_FILE_SAVEDIBA = $WM_CAP_START + 25 $WM_CAP_FILE_SAVEDIBW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 25 $WM_CAP_FILE_SET_CAPTURE_FILEA = $WM_CAP_START + 20 $WM_CAP_FILE_SET_CAPTURE_FILEW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 20 $WM_CAP_FILE_SET_INFOCHUNK = $WM_CAP_START + 24 $WM_CAP_GET_AUDIOFORMAT = $WM_CAP_START + 36 $WM_CAP_GET_CAPSTREAMPTR = $WM_CAP_START + 1 $WM_CAP_GET_MCI_DEVICEA = $WM_CAP_START + 67 $WM_CAP_GET_MCI_DEVICEW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 67 $WM_CAP_GET_SEQUENCE_SETUP = $WM_CAP_START + 65 $WM_CAP_GET_STATUS = $WM_CAP_START + 54 $WM_CAP_GET_USER_DATA = $WM_CAP_START + 8 $WM_CAP_GET_VIDEOFORMAT = $WM_CAP_START + 44 $WM_CAP_GRAB_FRAME = $WM_CAP_START + 60 $WM_CAP_GRAB_FRAME_NOSTOP = $WM_CAP_START + 61 $WM_CAP_PAL_AUTOCREATE = $WM_CAP_START + 83 $WM_CAP_PAL_MANUALCREATE = $WM_CAP_START + 84 $WM_CAP_PAL_OPENA = $WM_CAP_START + 80 $WM_CAP_PAL_OPENW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 80 $WM_CAP_PAL_PASTE = $WM_CAP_START + 82 $WM_CAP_SEQUENCE = $WM_CAP_START + 62 $WM_CAP_SEQUENCE_NOFILE = $WM_CAP_START + 63 $WM_CAP_SET_AUDIOFORMAT = $WM_CAP_START + 35 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_CAPCONTROL = $WM_CAP_START + 85 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_ERRORA = $WM_CAP_START + 2 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_ERRORW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 2 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_FRAME = $WM_CAP_START + 5 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_STATUSA = $WM_CAP_START + 3 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_STATUSW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 3 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_VIDEOSTREAM = $WM_CAP_START + 6 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_WAVESTREAM = $WM_CAP_START + 7 $WM_CAP_SET_CALLBACK_YIELD = $WM_CAP_START + 4 $WM_CAP_SET_MCI_DEVICEA = $WM_CAP_START + 66 $WM_CAP_SET_MCI_DEVICEW = $WM_CAP_UNICODE_START + 66 $WM_CAP_SET_OVERLAY = $WM_CAP_START + 51 $WM_CAP_SET_PREVIEW = $WM_CAP_START + 50 $WM_CAP_SET_PREVIEWRATE = $WM_CAP_START + 52 $WM_CAP_SET_SCALE = $WM_CAP_START + 53 $WM_CAP_SET_SCROLL = $WM_CAP_START + 55 $WM_CAP_SET_SEQUENCE_SETUP = $WM_CAP_START + 64 $WM_CAP_SET_USER_DATA = $WM_CAP_START + 9 $WM_CAP_SET_VIDEOFORMAT = $WM_CAP_START + 45 $WM_CAP_SINGLE_FRAME = $WM_CAP_START + 72 $WM_CAP_SINGLE_FRAME_CLOSE = $WM_CAP_START + 71 $WM_CAP_SINGLE_FRAME_OPEN = $WM_CAP_START + 70 $WM_CAP_STOP = $WM_CAP_START + 68 rec.au3  :

      Unfortunately this is not working as I thought it would be working.
      Does someone see what I´m doing wrong?
      It should record the webcam for about 10 seconds ( a little less) and save that to an .avi file.
      It does not stop the recording , I have to stop the process manually...
      Secondly, which confuses me more is that it creates the test.avi not in the location is specified in the script... its stored in the ScriptDir for whatever reason haha
      I hope you can help me
