[..] GUICtrlSetBkColor + Slider

Recommended Posts

TommyDDR

Hi,

I just try to create a slider and change his background color and realise that GUICtrlSetBkColor on a slider put the focus on the windows of that slider.

I would like to know if that is a bug or normal effect of GUICtrlSetBkColor.

If you want to try this :

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Dim $Gui
$Gui = GUICreate("test", 300, 300)
$test = GUICtrlCreateSlider(10, 10, 280, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($test, 0xFFFFFF)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "quit")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOWNA)

While(True)
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Thanks

TommyDDR,

I think what you are seeing is not the result of GUICtrlSetBkColor specifically, but the unwelcome application of the WM_SETFOCUS message to the slider control. Take a look at the NoFocusLines UDF in my sig for more info on this - and how to prevent it. :)

Thank's for your answer, i've try to use your code but no result...

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include "NoFocusLines.au3"
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Dim $Gui
$Gui = GUICreate("test", 300, 300)
$Slider = GUICtrlCreateSlider(10, 10, 280, 20)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "quit")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOWNA)
ConsoleWrite(_NoFocusLines_Set($Slider) & @CRLF)

Sleep(1000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($Slider, 0xFF0000)

While(True)
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

TommyDDR,

I know that colouring buttons makes them behave strangely because of a bug deep within the core AutoIt code - it looks like you have found another problem with the way colouring controls was implemented. You might want to raise a Trac ticket for it, but I fear the answer will be the same as for the button - "too difficult to fix". ;)

Sorry not to be of more help - do you have to colour the slider? :)

I have a slider in a tab item but the background of the slider is same as the background of the windows (not same as the tab item), so i change bkcolor of slider (yes, it's messy, but i don't find another way).

Thank you for yours replies :)
