GUICtrlSetColor() on checkbox text

7 posts in this topic

In the help file, it says the following:

Checkbox, Radio, Group or Progress controls cannot be painted if the "Windows XP/Vista style" is used.

I know there's a GUICtrlSetStyle() and a GUISetStyle()... but how do I make it so that it's 'not the Windows XP/Vista style' ?

“Hello, ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

;=====================================================================================================================
Func _GUICtrlSetTheme($iControl = -1, $bThemeColor = 0x24D245)
     If Not IsHWnd($iControl) Then $iControl = GUICtrlGetHandle($iControl)
     Local $aReturn = DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", $iControl, "wstr", 0, "wstr", 0)
     If @error Then Return SetError(1, 1, 0)

Or just use DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", <whatver variable points to the control>, "wstr", 0, "wstr", 0) after the control is created.

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.

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.

Is there a way to reset the style of the control back to default? I tried to read the previous windows theme by using GetWindowTheme and use SetWindowTheme to set it, but I couldn't get it to work.

Not sure if this works for this purpose... but give it a shot ^_^

GUICtrlSetStyle($control_ID, 0)
