MS Splash Screens
The office 2016/17 office suite has made many people turn heads with its functions and especially their splash screen.
I now present to you, the MS Style Splash Screen. For Rookies, Novices and anyone who wants a ready made splash screen for your gui application.
You can now download it and also try it out yourself.
You have three colors to choose from:
All three colours are from the famous programs.
I also included the KODA form to you can have freedom with this splash screen.
Note: the KODA form does not have the three colours as well as the correct blue.
Have fun and enjoy.
I will update the splash to add the automated 3 dots animation at a later stage.
I know many newbies search for this feature.
I decided to share this piece of code with everyone.
Basically its a "splash screen" that has a transparent image.
In a nutshell - Gui with a transparent gif.

I have a question
about the display language of the system
How can I get the current display language and how can I change it by autoit
Of course, if this is possible
Greetings to all and hope you help me
I want to use the "_ChangeScreenResEx()" UDF for changing my display settings from 1680*1050 to 1280*800.
When I use it the display change to 1280*800 but with Intel Drivers, Scaling option change : Maintain display Scaling become Center Image.
Here my Main program
#include <.\_ChangeResolutionEx.au3> Global $Config = @ScriptDir & "\ChangeResolution.ini" Global $aSection = IniReadSectionNames($Config) Global $Moniteur,$Largeur,$Hauteur,$Profondeur,$Refresh for $i = 1 to $aSection Step 1 $Moniteur = Number($i) $Largeur = Number(IniRead($Config,$i,"Width","1680")) $Hauteur = Number(IniRead($Config,$i,"Height","1050")) $Profondeur = Number(IniRead($Config,$i,"Bits","32")) $Refresh = Number(IniRead($Config,$i,"Refresh","60")) _ChangeScreenResEx($Moniteur,$Largeur,$Hauteur,$Profondeur,$Refresh) Sleep(1000) Next _ChangeScreenResEx()

thanks for your answer.
I wondered why negative integers I wrote into registry (e.g. negative x-coordinates of a gui if using two monitors and the right one is the main one) wouldn't return right when reading. Now I know: it is saved as an unsigned integer (without algebraic sign). So here is a snippet that is changing unsigned to signed integer:
Global Const $g_sRegKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\" & @ScriptName ; path to registry RegWrite($g_sRegKey, "Value", "REG_DWORD", -2147483647) ; write some negative integer into registry; -2147483647 highest possible negative integer , 2147483648 highest possible positive integer if talking of 32bit Local $sValue = RegRead($g_sRegKey, "Value") ; read out registry ConsoleWrite("Value: " & $sValue & @CRLF) ; show real value in console Local $sResult = _SignedInteger($sValue) ; change to signed value ConsoleWrite("Result: " & $sResult & @CRLF) ; and show it in console Func _SignedInteger($iUnsignedInteger) Local $iSignedInteger If $iUnsignedInteger > (2^31) Then ; then it means a negative integer $iSignedInteger = $iUnsignedInteger - (2^32) Else $iSignedInteger = $iUnsignedInteger EndIf Return $iSignedInteger EndFunc It took me some time to find out the problem and so I hope I can help somebody with this.
