Drawing in GUI?

Recommended Posts


Hi there

I have an issue whit drawing

Im making a program that I want to be able to draw in on the fly whit mouse click

all the mouse detection and so on is ok I have that covered.

$n = GUICtrlCreatePic($img, 1, 1, $iX, $iY) ; here I load a backgraound image

$a = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(1, 1, $X, $Y) ; here I create a graphic to draw in.

GUICtrlSetGraphic($a, $GUI_GR_COLOR, 0x000000)

GUICtrlSetGraphic($a, $GUI_GR_MOVE, 0, 0)

GUICtrlSetGraphic($a, $GUI_GR_LINE, $X, $Y)


I have 2 issue whit this.

1) it works but $n is always on top????

2) I cant modify $a after GUISetState() ???

Can any one point me in the right direction?

I don't need to save the image after modifing.

I only need the position of the lines I draw on the fly and export them (all that I have covered)
