As it happens, I am actually working on an installer too. Not so much the installation side of it though, but it would definately be worth taking a look at this to see how other people are going about it too. Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks. But I don't plan to release it without it being fully functional and customizable. I think that what will happen, is I will write a program to encode the contents of the selected directory (where the installed files will be), present the user with a window to allow for registry settings, and then compile.

Sounds Good. :)

hi

maybe

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(120, 200, 257, 25,$WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE)
  
    DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), "wstr", 0, "wstr", 0)
    GUICtrlSetStyle($Progress1, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_PROGRESS, $PBS_SMOOTH))
  
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)

or

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(120, 200, 257, 25)
  DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle($Progress1), "wstr", 0, "wstr", 0)
   
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)

Nice Modifications! i tried to cancel once i click on the Install button. but it were not able to stop the progress bar action and it skips! Please have a look!

To Fix this i just modified the _Installfiles() function as below. Please appologize for modified your code without your knowledge!

Func InstallFiles()

AutoItSetOption("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Global $InstallDir
GUICreate("Installer Template", 400, 340)
GUICtrlCreatePic("image.jpg", 10, 10, 100, 320)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Installation in Progress", 130, 50, 200)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12)
$Progress = _ProgressCreate(130, 120, 250, 30)
_ProgressSetFont($Progress, "", 0, 2)
_ProgressSetColors($Progress, -1, -1, 0xDCDCDC, 0xDCDCDC)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Directory:", 130, 160)
GUICtrlCreateInput(GUICtrlRead($InstallDir), 180, 160, 200, 18, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, $ES_READONLY))
$CancelButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 320, 313, 80)
_ProgressSetText($Progress, "Loading...")

GUISetState()

Sleep(1200)

For $i = 0 To 100 Step 10
If GUICtrlRead($CancelButton) <> "Cancel" Then ;==============> This condition will do the trick

_ProgressSet($Progress, $i)
_ProgressSetText($Progress, "Installing... " & $i & "%")
If $i > 40 Then
_ProgressSetText($Progress, "Cleaning Up... " & $i & "%")
ControlDisable("", "", $CancelButton)
Else
_ProgressSetText($Progress, "Installing... " & $i & "%")
EndIf
If $i = 100 Then _ProgressSetText($Progress, "Installation Complete!")
Sleep(700)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($CancelButton, "_CancelInstallation")
Else ;============================> else part for the cancelation
_CancelInstallation()
EndIf
Next
Sleep(1000)
AutoItSetOption("GUIOnEventMode", 0)
GUIDelete()
InstallationComplete()


EndFunc   ;==>InstallFiles

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.
      #Region options, includes Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #EndRegion options, includes Global Const $nCols = 2, $nRows = 6, $nSpacer = 10, $nBtnWidth = 150, $nBtnHeight = 30 Global $xName = 0, $xID = 0 Global $nGUIWidth = ($nCols * $nBtnWidth) + (($nCols + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $nGUIHeight = ($nRows * $nBtnHeight) + (($nRows + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $hMainGUI = GUICreate("Calculated GUI", $nGUIWidth, $nGUIHeight, -1, -1) For $xRows = 1 to $nRows ;in this arrangement, tabbing is left to right, then next row For $xCols = 1 to $nCols ;reverse the order of this line with the prior line for top to bottom tabbing, then next col $xName += 1 $xID += 1 Global $Dummy = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $xName, _ ($nBtnWidth * ($xCols - 1)) + (($xCols - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ ($nBtnHeight* ($xRows - 1)) + (($xRows - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ $nBtnWidth, _ $nBtnHeight) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($xID+2, "Handler") Next Next GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CloseApp") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func CloseApp() Exit EndFunc Func Handler() MsgBox(0,0,"Button " & @GUI_CtrlId - 2) EndFunc

      For fun, I'm building an app that opens a webpage and refreshes it every 30 seconds.
      But once the script performs _IEAction($oIE, "refresh"), the GUI closes.

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.
