Problem changing group and checkbox text colour

Recommended Posts

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. :)

Ok, I apologise for that. Any ideas Melba?

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!

      Hey Guys,
      I want to add a new checkbox with its own variable every time the add button is clicked.
      The added checkboxes should remain when I close the window or exit the script and when I reopen I should be able to add new checkboxes aswell.
      here is what I have so far..
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <GuiButton.au3> $test = GUICreate("adding test", 475, 345, 500, 175) $Check1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 1", 15, 25, 300, 25) $Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add", 365, 25, 90, 20) $Check2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 2", 15, 50, 300, 25) $Check3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 3", 15, 75, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check2, $GUI_HIDE) GUICtrlSetState($Check3, $GUI_HIDE) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ; Exit Case $Button GUICtrlSetPos($Check2, 15, 50, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check2, $GUI_SHOW) Case $Button GUICtrlSetPos($Check3, 15, 75, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check3, $GUI_SHOW) EndSwitch WEnd

      hello evrybody
      here is an example about how to split your texts using a delimiter with the ability to select how much of delimiters shows in each colum  with $i_number
      e.g
      you have a long text and you want to split it in an array
      that evry colum have a number (n) of lines
      i made a function that do that for you
      just call it with a three params
      $s_text
      your text
      $i_number
      the number that you want to put in each col
      $s_siparator
      the siparator
      default is "|"
      here is the function with example
      i hope that it will be useful for you
       
      ****
       
      #include <Array.au3> $s_txt = "some text1some text2|some text3|some text4|some text5|some text6" $array = splitText($s_txt, 2) _ArrayDisplay($array) Func splitText($s_text, $i_number, $s_siparator = "|") Local $a_TXT = StringSplit($s_text, $s_siparator) Local $a_Return[$a_TXT[0] + 1] If ($a_TXT[0] <= $i_number) Or ($i_number <= 0) Then ReDim $a_Return[2] $a_Return[0] = 1 $a_Return[1] = $s_text Return $a_Return EndIf Local $i_Processed = 1, $i_arrayProcessed = 1 Do For $i = $i_Processed To ($i_Processed + $i_number) - 1 If ($a_TXT[0] < $i) Then ExitLoop If Not ($a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed]) Then $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] = $a_TXT[$i] Else $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] &= $s_siparator & $a_TXT[$i] EndIf $i_Processed += 1 Next $i_arrayProcessed += 1 Until ($a_TXT[0] < $i_Processed) ReDim $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] $a_Return[0] = $i_arrayProcessed - 1 Return $a_Return EndFunc ;==>splitText
      accept my greetings
      thanks to
