how to make an icon into a push button

7 posts in this topic

I'm trying to make an icon into a push button.

this is the closest I've got, but I'd like the entire icon to be the button. Not an icon within a button.

Local $oControl = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("", $iLeft, $iTop, $iWidth, $iHeight, BitOR($BS_PUSHLIKE, $BS_ICON, $BS_FLAT))
GUICtrlSetImage($oControl, $sTemp & "\" & $sIcon & ".ico")

Use the icon by itself with GUICtrlcreateIcon, then you can action off of it by it's control ID just like a button.

True, but once the icon has been clicked on and I preform an action.. how would I know if the icon is in the "clicked" state similar to how a push button is pressed or unpressed.

You don't know when it's clicked on, unless it does something when you click on it. There's no visual indication that it's been clicked like a button shows.

Exactly. Do you have a reccomendation on how to accomplish something similar with it in the same manner that a button control would have a "state" of either checked or unchecked?

Have a look at _GUICtrlButton_SetImageList().


Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe
trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the Universe is winning.
