Calendar title color is not correct on many colors

Recommended Posts

abberration

Hello, everyone. I have been racking my brain on this problem. I have a calendar inserted into one of my programs. I have created a color picker to change the title bar color and it works to an extent. It seems about half the colors I try do not show up as the correct color. I have created a little example below that shows a non-working example after 3 seconds and then after another 3 seconds, it shows a working example. The square on the right always produces the correct color, so I'm including it to help illustrate.

Does anyone know if this is a known bug with the _GUICtrlMonthCal_SetColor function? If you have any suggestions, they would be appreciated.

Thanks!

#include <GuiMonthCal.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$Form = GUICreate("Form3", 347, 207, 297, 132)

$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 240, 32, 76, 81)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($Label1, 0x800000)
$MonthCal1 = GUICtrlCreateMonthCal("2012/11/06", 16, 8, 191, 154)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Sleep (3000)

; 3 seconds later, change calendar title to a maroon color - but it is not maroon
_GUICtrlMonthCal_SetColor ($MonthCal1, $MCSC_TITLEBK, 0x800000)

; 3 more seconds, change both to pink - this time it works
Sleep(3000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($Label1, 0xFF00FF)
_GUICtrlMonthCal_SetColor ($MonthCal1, $MCSC_TITLEBK, 0xFF00FF)

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

EndSwitch
WEnd

abberration,

As the second colour (which works) is palindromic I would suggest that the function requires colours in BGR and not RGB format. So try with 0x000080 and see if that works. ;)

Edit: 13k! Unlucky for some perhaps. ;D

What you said makes a lot of sense now. I just notices that the colors that are off are opposites of each other. Yellow is light blue and light blue is yellow. Red is dark blue and dark blue is red.

Thanks M23! I'm off to write a function to re-order the RGB values.

Ah, that is very cool. I had written a StringSplit statement and pieced it back together and it was not working. However, your BitShift version works perfectly.

Thanks again, M23!
