If you notice when running the combobox's default background seems to be white. If you click on the combo box the background will change to the color im trying to make it (just using black as a test color)

Don't understand where I'm messing up.

No idea why is this happening

But u can correct it

Just change this Function

Func _CreateComboBox($iLeft, $iTop, $sText = "", $sTextDefault = "", $iWidth = 121, $iHeight = 20)
Local $oControl = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", $iLeft, $iTop, $iWidth, $iHeight)
;DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle($oControl), "wstr", 0, "wstr", 0)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($oControl, 0)
GUICtrlSetData($oControl, $sText, $sTextDefault)
ControlClick('','',$oControl)
Return $oControl
EndFunc ;==>_CreateComboBox

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.

that's not really a solution since it makes the focus set to the combo box which is not where the focus should be set when the script launches.

Can you post a short reproducer script that demonstrates the problem and doesn't require any non-standard files, such as your icon files or the controls.au3 file? Much easier to trouble shoot the problem with something we can actually run.

Before showing the GUI u can use ControlFocus to give focus to the required control

you don't actually need the icon files. They aren't being used. you can just comment out the whole function if you wanted.

The controls.au3 is just storing all the functions.

you could just copy the functions from controls into the main script.

I'm not sure why it's not coloring it correctly, but I foresee many problems with this script in the future if this isn't just a proof-of-concept script.

All of your controls are being assigned to the same location in the $asubcontrols array, which means you'll never be able to access them later in the script.

Plus unless you actually need the control ids from the labels and group items, there's no need to preserve them in the array, i.e. if you're not going to change them or access them later you don't need to care what the ids are.

As to having the combobox colored when the script starts, and having the focus on the correct control instead of the Combo, try this mod to your script. See the lines marked with ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

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.
Give a programmer the correct code and he can do his work for a day. Teach a programmer to debug and he can do his work for a lifetime - by Chirag Gude
How to ask questions the smart way!

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
