Splash Text when click button ?

5 posts in this topic

My friends i want to have a button that when a user click on it to show a splash text ( like a help info )

User country73 informed me about the GUICtrlSetTip when hover on a button but i want something that stays on the screen for a time so the user to be able to read.

Does anyone can lead me to the light ?

Thank you once again.

You can have the button open another GUI that shows the information on it in a label. Make the label clickable, so that when someone clicks on the label it fires an action the same way a button would, that closes the GUI.


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.

Here is some very basic code that explains one way of doing it, this uses MessageLoop mode, but is just as easy to do using OnEvent mode.

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n
#endregion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
GUICreate("Test")
GUISetBkColor(0x000000)
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton(" Help ", 20, 20)
GUISetState()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $Button
            _NewGui()
        Case -3
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
Func _NewGui()
    Local $GUI = GUICreate("Help", 240, 340, 200, 200, $WS_POPUP)
    Local $Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Here's where you put your help text so that the user can read it." & @LF & _
            "Click anywhere in the white box to close this window", 20, 20, 200, 300)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
    GUISetState()
    While 1
        Local $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $msg
            Case -3, $Label
                GUIDelete($GUI)
                Return
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_NewGui
