Show a picture, that has transparency

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make a software which has a part that shows a picture on your desktop. It has got some transparency too, so I must give a transparent color to the GUI.

Heres the pic: http://noob.hu/2012/06/07/protected.bmp (Black stuff is just a browser-bug)

Here's my current code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

GUICreate("", 249, 73, 419, 289, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)
GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "protected.bmp", 0, 0, 248, 72)

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg


When I run it there's a cream-like color around the pic (the default gui color). Any idea why it itsn't transparent? ($WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)

This is a different bmp format which is even not displayed properly in GIMP or XnView. I would suggest to convert it to png.

PNG can be displayed properly even it has transparency using this function:

Func SetTransparentBitmap($hGUI, $hImage, $iOpacity = 0xFF)
    Local $hScrDC, $hMemDC, $hBitmap, $hOld, $pSize, $tSize, $pSource, $tSource, $pBlend, $tBlend
    $hScrDC = _WinAPI_GetDC(0)
    $hMemDC = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleDC($hScrDC)
    $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap($hImage)
    $hOld = _WinAPI_SelectObject($hMemDC, $hBitmap)
    $tSize = DllStructCreate($tagSIZE)
    $pSize = DllStructGetPtr($tSize)
    DllStructSetData($tSize, "X", _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage))
    DllStructSetData($tSize, "Y", _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage))
    $tSource = DllStructCreate($tagPOINT)
    $pSource = DllStructGetPtr($tSource)
    $tBlend = DllStructCreate($tagBLENDFUNCTION)
    $pBlend = DllStructGetPtr($tBlend)
    DllStructSetData($tBlend, "Alpha", $iOpacity)
    DllStructSetData($tBlend, "Format", 1)
    _WinAPI_UpdateLayeredWindow($hGUI,  $hMemDC, 0, $pSize, $hMemDC, $pSource, 0, $pBlend, $ULW_ALPHA)
    _WinAPI_ReleaseDC(0, $hScrDC)
    _WinAPI_SelectObject($hMemDC, $hOld)
EndFunc   ;==>SetTransparentBitmap

Okay, I will try, but I can see the pic in gimp perfectly (because I made it). And in AutoIT, that black stuff from behind goes away - I just want to hide the main Gui.



Converted to png - tried an other code - works perfectly ;) Thanks.
