Gui With A Transparent Hole

6 posts in this topic

Hey Every1!!!

I just wanted to make a gui that has a tranparent hole in it so that we can view the background behind it !!!!

It just looks very cool and awesome

This pic will be more descriptive http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/5577/72474173.png

Any help is greatly appreciated ;) !!


My code:

PredictText: Predict Text of an Edit Control Like Scite. Remote Gmail: Execute your Scripts through Gmail. StringRegExp:Share and learn RegExp.

Run As System: A command line wrapper around PSEXEC.exe to execute your apps scripts as System (LSA). Database: An easier approach for _SQ_LITE beginners.

MathsEx: A UDF for Fractions and LCM, GCF/HCF. FloatingText: An UDF for make your text floating. Clipboard Extendor: A clipboard monitoring tool. 

Custom ScrollBar: Scroll Bar made with GDI+, user can use bitmaps instead. RestrictEdit_SRE: Restrict text in an Edit Control through a Regular Expression.

krazykreat,

I hope future posts are more useful. :)

PhoenixXL,

This should give you the idea. ;)

#include <guiconstantsex.au3>
#include <winapi.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
GUISetBkColor(0xFF0000)

_GUICreateInvRect($hGUI, 50, 50, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1
  If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
Wend

Func _GUICreateInvRect($hWnd, $iX, $iY, $iW, $iH)

    $aPos = WinGetPos($hWnd)

    Local $hMask_1 = _WinAPI_CreateRectRgn(0, 0, $aPos[2], $iY)
    Local $hMask_2 = _WinAPI_CreateRectRgn(0, 0, $iX, $aPos[3])
    Local $hMask_3 = _WinAPI_CreateRectRgn($iX + $iW, 0, $aPos[2], $aPos[3])
    Local $hMask_4 = _WinAPI_CreateRectRgn(0, $iY + $iH, $aPos[2], $aPos[3])

    _WinAPI_CombineRgn($hMask_1, $hMask_1, $hMask_2, 2)
    _WinAPI_CombineRgn($hMask_1, $hMask_1, $hMask_3, 2)
    _WinAPI_CombineRgn($hMask_1, $hMask_1, $hMask_4, 2)

    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hMask_2)
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hMask_3)
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hMask_4)

    _WinAPI_SetWindowRgn($hWnd, $hMask_1, 1)

EndFunc

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Back up and restore Windows user files _Array.au3 - Modified array functions that include support for 2D arrays.  -  ColorChooser - An add-on for SciTE that pops up a color dialog so you can select and paste a color code into a script.  -  Customizable Splashscreen GUI w/Progress Bar - Create a custom "splash screen" GUI with a progress bar and custom label.  -  _FileGetProperty - Retrieve the properties of a file  -  SciTE Toolbar - A toolbar demo for use with the SciTE editor  -  GUIRegisterMsg demo - Demo script to show how to use the Windows messages to interact with controls and your GUI.  -   Latin Square password generator

That is one of my favorites. ;) Always the first thing I provide to helpdesk folks. Eventually you get the desired effect:

"Hey, I had a question - and YES I googled it first..."
