Problem changing group and checkbox text colour

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Been a while since I was last using AutoIt properly and it's showing!

I am creating a simple game launcher - before you all pounce, this is not a hack. I will use it to pass command line parameters to a game. Not to hack it.

Anyway, I have loaded the background image and have a button displayed - however the text on both the checkbox and group will not change?

Looking through the help file, I noted:

Only Button, Label, Checkbox, Group, Radio, Edit, Input, List, Listview, ListviewItem, Treeview, TreeviewItem, Graphic, Progress and Combo controls can currently be colored.

Checkbox, Radio, Group or Progress controls cannot be painted if the "Windows XP/Vista style" is used.

That sort of contradicts itself? My brother tried to show me optional 'workarounds' however neither of them suited what I want to do. So here is the program. Works the same without the background image.

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

Global $hGUI, $hImage, $hGraphic, $hLabel
Global $hRunGroup, $hRun, $hRunTesting

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GuiCreate("Assaultcube Launcher", 400, 400)
;~   GUICtrlSetDefColor(0xFFFFFF, $hGUI)
  GUISetBkColor(0x000000, $hGUI)
GUISetState()

; Create background image
_GDIPlus_Startup()
$hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile("C:\Program Files\AssaultCube_v1.1.0.4\packages\misc\startscreen.png")
$hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImageRect($hGraphic, $hImage, 10, -20, 380, 380)

; Hide Loading... text
GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 130, 180, 120, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x000000)

; Create controls
$hRunGroup = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Run Assaultcube", 10, 250, 380, 50)
$hRun = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run Assaultcube", 40, 300)
$hRunTesting = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Testing", 100, 100)

; Set appropriate colours
GUICtrlSetColor($hRunGroup, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetColor($hRun, 0x000000 )
GUICtrlSetColor($hRunTesting, 0xFFFFFF)

While 1
switch GUIGetMsg()
case -3
_Exit()
EndSwitch

WEnd

Func _Exit()
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic)
_GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage)
_GDIPlus_ShutDown()
Exit
EndFunc

Can anyone help me to set the group and checkbox text colours please? Please note the background colours must stay the same.

shanet,

Next time just write a short script showing the problem that does not even mention games and then you will not have to go through the explanation and I will not get reports about the thread - makes us both happy. :)

It's not a contradiction, you just need to disable theming to set colors for them.

Here's an example of mine I like to quote when this turns up.

You can make only the group-control run without any theme by doing like so:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

$Form1_1 = GUICreate("Amortization Plus", 644, 303, 207, 200)
GUISetBkColor(0x000080)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Amortization Table", 8, 0, 625, 81, BitOR($BS_CENTER, $BS_FLAT))
DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle($Group1), "wstr", 0, "wstr", 0)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "System")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

(this of course also works on Checkbox, Radio and Progress)

Or disable it for the whole gui like so:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "none", "SetThemeAppProperties", "int", 0)

$Form1_1 = GUICreate("Amortization Plus", 644, 303, 207, 200)
GUISetBkColor(0x000080)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Amortization Table", 8, 0, 625, 81, BitOR($BS_CENTER, $BS_FLAT))
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "System")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func StyleToggle($Off = 1)
If Not StringInStr(@OSType, "WIN32_NT") Then Return 0
$XS_n = DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "int", "GetThemeAppProperties")
If $Off Then
  DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "none", "SetThemeAppProperties", "int", 0)
  Return 1
ElseIf IsArray($XS_n) Then
  DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "none", "SetThemeAppProperties", "int", $XS_n[0])
  $XS_n = ""
  Return 1
EndIf
Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>StyleToggle

you can use this!

Example:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

StyleToggle(1)
$Form1_1 = GUICreate("Amortization Plus", 644, 303, 207, 200)
GUISetBkColor(0x000080)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Amortization Table", 8, 0, 625, 81, BitOR($BS_CENTER, $BS_FLAT))
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "System")
StyleToggle(0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
  Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   Exit
EndSwitch
WEnd

Func StyleToggle($Off = 1)
If Not StringInStr(@OSType, "WIN32_NT") Then Return 0
$XS_n = DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "int", "GetThemeAppProperties")
If $Off Then
  DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "none", "SetThemeAppProperties", "int", 0)
  Return 1
ElseIf IsArray($XS_n) Then
  DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "none", "SetThemeAppProperties", "int", $XS_n[0])
  $XS_n = ""
  Return 1
EndIf
Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>StyleToggle

AdmiralWithHat, many thanks for that DllCall. Works like a charm.

Maybe that should be included in the help file? If it is, I apologise for missing it.

Thanks guys!

      I am trying to identify the window based on the window title and text.
      The title will be the "erwin DM - filename"

      It is working till date, but some operating systems our application is displaying window as "erwin DM - [filename]"
       
      I tried  "erwin DM - *filename*" But this regular expression is not working.
      Any suggestion?
       
      $sModelFile = "C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\My Models\eMovies.erwin" $wdModel = _WinWaitActivate1("erwin DM - "&FileNameOnly($sModelFile),"") Func _WinWaitActivate1($title,$text,$timeout=0);Will Return the window Handler Logging("Waiting for "&$title&":"&$text) $dHandle = WinWait($title,$text,$timeout) if not ($dHandle = 0) then If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text) return WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout) Else Logging("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...") Exit EndIf EndFunc Func FileNameOnly($sFilePath) Local $sDrive = "", $sDir = "", $sFileName = "", $sExtension = "" Local $aPathSplit = _PathSplit($sFilePath, $sDrive, $sDir, $sFileName, $sExtension) ;_ArrayDisplay($aPathSplit, "_PathSplit of " & @ScriptFullPath) return $sFileName EndFunc

      Hello,
      I am struggling in merging GUITreeViewEx, Shelltristate and enhancing to handle a third state that means : some items under are selected.
      I have difficulties handling expand order and key Space (especially when node is collapsed).
      Here the zip with UDF and and example.
       
      The problem I might need some advice to handle : 
      1- When load Treeview, have a correct settings of the checkbox for a tristate tree
      2 - Handle keyboard used for walking in tree
           Chicken is checked and  Steak is unchecked
          When walking with arrow to Meat, it gets unchecked
      3 - When node is collapsed and checked thru keyboard (space)
         the middle state is possible which should not
      Here is joined an animated gif showing the 3 problems
       
      Thanks for your advices

      This small UDF helps you save any text to speech to a .wav file.
