(Solved) Listview with transparent Background problem

13 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

When I use the $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND style for a ListView, then it gets correctly a transparent background.

But all columns are transformed!

Will mean, Column A is right, and Column C is left.

Also the scrollbar is on the left side.

What's wrong here?

(You can remove the $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND and then the ListView is as normal!)

An other problem is, that the transparent background would only work for GUISetBkColor.

But not for GUICtrlCreatePic! Is there an other way for this?

#include
#include
Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

GUICreate("Test", 1024, 768, -1, -1)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, "_Exit")
GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)

Global $hLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("A|B|C", 100, 100, 610, 600, -1, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND))
For $i = 1 To 50
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item: A" & $i, $hLV1)
_GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV1, $i - 1, "Item: B" & $i, 1)
_GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV1, $i - 1, "Item: C" & $i, 2)
Next

_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 0, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 1, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 2, 200)

GUISetState()

While True
Sleep(1000)
WEnd
_Exit()

Func _Exit()
Exit
EndFunc

Best regards

Strange enough, but it seems that some LV styles can only be applied after creation, otherwise the this is applied to the underlying window too.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

GUICreate("Test", 1024, 768, -1, -1)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, "_Exit")
GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)

; Global $hLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("A|B|C", 100, 100, 610, 600, -1, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND))

; Const $WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL = 0x400000
; Global $hLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("A|B|C", 100, 100, 610, 600, Default, BitXOR(BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND), $WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL))

Global $hLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("A|B|C", 100, 100, 610, 600)
_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hLV1, $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND)

For $i = 1 To 50
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item: A" & $i, $hLV1)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV1, $i - 1, "Item: B" & $i, 1)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV1, $i - 1, "Item: C" & $i, 2)
Next

_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 0, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 1, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 2, 200)

GUISetState()

While True
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd
_Exit()

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Hi KaFu

Thanks a lot for this "workarround". It's working perfect!

But what, when I'd like to change the background color to an background image?

Take a look at this code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)
GUICreate("Test", 1024, 768, -1, -1)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, "_Exit")
GUICtrlCreatePic("C:WindowsWebWallpaperWindowsimg0.jpg", 0, 0, 1024, 768)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
;~ GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)
Global $hLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("A|B|C", 100, 100, 610, 600)
_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hLV1, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND))
For $i = 1 To 50
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item: A" & $i, $hLV1)
_GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV1, $i - 1, "Item: B" & $i, 1)
_GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV1, $i - 1, "Item: C" & $i, 2)
Next
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 0, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 1, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 2, 200)
GUISetState()
While True
Sleep(1000)
WEnd
_Exit()
Func _Exit()
Exit
EndFunc ;==>_Exit

PS: Every time I post here a script, I will lose my formatting or the includes......

I've found a reference to this problem here, take a look at the bottom ("Community Additions"), though I did no succeed in implementing a workaround.

Thanks for the link.

Unfortunately I can't get it to work.

When I try this, I get some misterious graphic errors

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)
GUICreate("Test", 1024, 768, -1, -1)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, "_Exit")
GUICtrlCreatePic("C:WindowsWebWallpaperWindowsimg0.jpg", 0, 0, 1024, 768)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
;~ GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)
Global $hLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("Column A|Column B|Column C", 100, 100, 610, 600)
_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hLV1, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT))
For $i = 1 To 50
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item: A" & $i, $hLV1)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV1, $i - 1, "Item: B" & $i, 1)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV1, $i - 1, "Item: C" & $i, 2)
Next
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 0, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 1, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($hLV1, 2, 189)
GUISetState()
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_PRINTCLIENT, "WM_PRINTCLIENT")
While True
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd
_Exit()
Func WM_PRINTCLIENT($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    #forceref $Msg, $wParam, $lParam
 Local Const $PRF_ERASEBKGND = 0x00000008
 If $lParam = $PRF_ERASEBKGND Then Return True
 Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc   ;==>WM_PRINTCLIENT

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Anything else, I can do?

As another workaround: you can use a 2nd GUI (child GUI) with the listview control and set the 2nd window transparent.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
;~ #include <WindowsConstants.au3>;~~~

Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 1024, 768, -1, -1, Default, $WS_EX_LAYERED)
GUICtrlCreatePic("C:WindowsWebWallpaperWindowsimg0.jpg", 0, 0, 1024, 768)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

Global $hGUI2 = GUICreate("", 1024, 768, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_LAYERED + $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI)
Global $iBGColor = 0x909090
GUISetBkColor($iBGColor, $hGUI2)
;~ GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)
Global $iLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("Column A|Column B|Column C", 100, 100, 610, 600)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBGColor)

Global $hLV1 = GUICtrlGetHandle($iLV1)
_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hLV1, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT, $LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND))

For $i = 1 To 50
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item: A" & $i, $iLV1)
_GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($iLV1, $i - 1, "Item: B" & $i, 1)
_GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($iLV1, $i - 1, "Item: C" & $i, 2)
Next
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($iLV1, 0, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($iLV1, 1, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($iLV1, 2, 189)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI2)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hGUI2, $iBGColor)

GUISetOnEvent(-3, "_Exit")

While True
Sleep(1000)
WEnd
_Exit()


Func _Exit()
Exit
EndFunc ;==>_Exit

I personally don't like the 2 GUI solution.

Hi UEZ

Thanks for that solution. That's very good (for me)

For this project, I use a very bright background and with this it's working!

Thank you very much!

Kind regards

Hi UEZ

Ok, now I tried an other background image.

With this image it's not working perfect. Then I have some graphic errors!

What I want to have is a ListView with a background image AND it must be possible to define the color of some rows!

I can set the row color.

And I can set a background image of a ListView.

But when I set the BG Image, then I can't set the row color AT THE SAME TIME! What's wrong?

Is the other image a PNG image? If yes, load it into GDI+ and send it to picture control.

No, it's also .jpg!

Can I set a background image to the ListView AND define the row color?

Hi UEZ

I'm sorry, but yesterday I wrote over my mobile phone, so I could not give some code!

What I meant was:

I know the command _GUICtrlListView_SetBkImage and I also know the command GUICtrlSetBkColor.

What I want to have is a Background Image in the ListView (perhaps with _GUICtrlListView_SetBkImage) AND define the row color with GUICtrlSetBkColor.

See attached pictures.

In picture 1 I have a ListView with row colors. Thats working. As you can see, I need the row colors, because I have to mark some special software. (License fee applied; paid / not paid; or installed / not installed)

In this ListView, I want to have a background picture, with the row color overlaying this picture (with transparency).

I tried with _GUICtrlListView_SetBkImage. But then, the GUICtrlSetBkColor doesn't work for setting the row color. (See picture 2)

The background picture is just an example!

Here is an example.

With this, I have a background image, but no row color.

If you disable ONLY the background image (_GUICtrlListView_SetBkImage) then you have row color!

But I'd like to have both!

#include <GuiListView.au3>
Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)
_GUI1()
While True
 Sleep(1000)
WEnd
_Exit()
Func _GUI1()
 Local Const $iW = 1024
 Local Const $iH = 768
 ;The following three lines are needed! Otherwise we don't have an background image in the ListView!
 ;An other workaround is to use _GUICtrlListView_Create() instead of GUICtrlCreateListView().
 ;But then we can't use the GUICtrlCreateListViewItem! And this command is needed, because I want to use the GUICtrlSetBkColor command with the return value of GUICtrlCreateListViewItem!
 GUICreate("", 0, 0, 0, 0)
 GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
 GUIDelete()
 Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Test", $iW, $iH, -1, -1)
 GUISetOnEvent(-3, "_Exit")
 Local $hLV1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("        - Column A -|       - Column B -|       - Column C -", 0, 0, $iW, $iH)
 _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hLV1, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT))
 _GUICtrlListView_SetBkImage(GUICtrlGetHandle($hLV1), "C:WindowsWebWallpaperWindowsimg0.jpg", 1, 0, 0)
 For $i = 1 To 70
  GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item: A" & $i & "|Item: B" & $i & "|Item: C" & $i, $hLV1)
  GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xABCDEF) ;============================================> This command doesn't work, when the _GUICtrlListView_SetBkImage is used!!!! => Problem!!!!
 Next
 GUISetState(@SW_SHOWNORMAL, $hGUI)
EndFunc    ;==>_GUI1
Func _Exit()
 DllCall('ole32.dll', 'long', 'CoUinitialize')
    Exit
EndFunc ;==>_Exit
