Screenshot attached!

I have a background image where all the buildings are black. When the distribution switches in the buildings respond to a ping, the buildings turn green.

Dim $hImgMain = GUICtrlCreatePic("img\fullmap-nologo.gif",0,0,768,635)

Dim $hImgAud = GUICtrlCreatePic("",263,287,36,27)
Dim $hImgBus = GUICtrlCreatePic("",181,321,97,28)
Dim $hImgCtr = GUICtrlCreatePic("",181,239,97,82)
...
If ping($sIpAud) Then GUICtrlSetImage($hImgAud,"img\Green-Aud.gif")

I'd like each building to have a context menu:

$hMenuAud = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($hImgAud)
$hMenuAud1 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Switch1",$hMenuAud)
$hMenuAud1Tel = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Telnet",$hMenuAud1)
$hMenuAud1Web = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Web",$hMenuAud1)
$hMenuAud2 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Switch2",$hMenuAud)
$hMenuAud2Tel = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Telnet",$hMenuAud2)
$hMenuAud2Web = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Web",$hMenuAud2)

but the menus don't show up. Neither do tooltips. I'm sure this is something simple, but I've never really done anything like this before.

Thanks!

Example for context menu:

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt('GUIOnEventMode', 1)

Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Test context on pic", 320, 70)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, '_Exit')

Global $nHelpContext = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu(GUICtrlCreateDummy())
Global $hHelpContext = GUICtrlGetHandle(-1)

Global $HelpWWW = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&Website", $nHelpContext)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, '_Website')
GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("", $nHelpContext)
Global $HelpAbout = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("&About...", $nHelpContext)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, '_About')

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_CONTEXTMENU, "WM_CONTEXTMENU")

Global $nPic = GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\mslogo.jpg", 10, 10, 300, 50)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(100000)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Func _About()
    MsgBox(64, "About...", "Example für context menu")
EndFunc   ;==>_About

Func _Website()
    MsgBox(64, "Website...", "www.autoit.de")
EndFunc   ;==>_Website

Func WM_CONTEXTMENU($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
    Local $IDCtrl = _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID($iwParam)
    Local $x = BitAND($ilParam, 0x0000FFFF), $y = BitShift($ilParam, 16)
    Switch $IDCtrl
        Case $nPic
            TrackPopupMenu($hWnd, $hHelpContext, $x, $y)
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>WM_CONTEXTMENU

Func TrackPopupMenu($hWnd, $hMenu, $x, $y)
    ConsoleWrite($x & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite($y & @CRLF)
    DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "TrackPopupMenuEx", "hwnd", $hMenu, "int", 0, "int", $x, "int", $y, "hwnd", $hWnd, "ptr", 0)
EndFunc   ;==>TrackPopupMenu

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.

I'm sorry, I was asking the wrong question.

Funkey, while your example works, it didn't really help with the issue I was having. (And a bit complex for a simple menu, eh?)

I hadn't tried it, but Context menus were working fine if I attached them to my main background image ($hImgMain). After a little further reading in the help file, I realized that a background image needs to be disabled, so I just needed to add GUICtrlSetState($hImgMain,$GUI_DISABLE)

Thanks!

      Hi, I have a problem with GUICtrlCreatePic(). In topic WMPlayer.ocx how to change the shuttle picture? I wanted to replace the shuttle picture with a custom one (which I sent below the code) but got some weird results.
      #include <GuiConstants.au3> #include <Misc.au3> Global $Paused = False, $SliderButton = @ScriptDir & "\SliderButton.jpg" $hGui = GUICreate("Music Player", 400, 75, -1, -1) $Label1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("", 0, 0, 400, 20) ;music name GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) $Shuttle = GUICtrlCreatePic($SliderButton, 0, 6, 30, 13) $PauseButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pause", 208, 40, 80, 20) GUISetOnEvent($PauseButton, "PauseButton") $PlayButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Play", 112, 40, 80, 20) $Progress = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0:00", 4, 25, 45, 20, $SS_LEFT) ; current media position $Length = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0:00", 350, 25, 45, 20, $SS_RIGHT) ; media length GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) $FilePath = "" ;your music path & .mp3 $oPlayer = ObjCreate("WMPlayer.OCX") If Not IsObj($oPlayer) Then MsgBox(0, "WMPlayer.OCX", "Cannot create a WMP object.", 5) GUIDelete($hGui) Exit EndIf $iPos = 0 ; x coordinate of $Shuttle control in progress bar $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll") ; to dectect mouse down on the $Shuttle control $sliderLength = 380 ; in pixels $adlibInterval = 250 ; in milliseconds $oPlayer.Settings.Volume = 100 While 1 $oPlayer.URL = $FilePath $hTimer = TimerInit() While $oPlayer.playState <> 3 ; 1 - stopped, 2 - paused, 3 - playing If TimerDiff($hTimer) > 3000 Then MsgBox(0, "WMPlayer.OCX", $FilePath & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Cannot play this file.", 5) ExitLoop EndIf Sleep(5) WEnd If $oPlayer.playState <> 3 Then ContinueLoop EndIf $sFile = StringMid($FilePath, StringInStr($FilePath, "\", 0, -1) + 1) GUICtrlSetData($Label1, $sFile) $mediaLength = Int($oPlayer.currentMedia.Duration) ; in seconds GUICtrlSetData($Length, Int($mediaLength / 60) & ":" & StringFormat("%02i", Mod($mediaLength, 60))) AdlibRegister("Slider", $adlibInterval) $oPlayer.Controls.Pause While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE $oPlayer.Close Exit Case $PlayButton If GUICtrlRead($PlayButton) = "Play" Then $oPlayer.Controls.Play AdlibRegister("Slider") GUICtrlSetData($PlayButton, "Stop") Else $oPlayer.Controls.currentPosition = 0 $oPlayer.Controls.Pause GUICtrlSetData($PlayButton, "Play") EndIf If $Paused Then While $Paused Sleep(100) WEnd EndIf Case $Shuttle AdlibUnRegister() $x = MouseGetPos(0) $xOffset = $x - $iPos While _IsPressed("01", $hDLL) = 1 $x = MouseGetPos(0) If $x > 380 + $xOffset Then $x = 380 + $xOffset ElseIf $x < $xOffset Then $x = $xOffset EndIf $iPos = $x - $xOffset GUICtrlSetPos($Shuttle, $iPos) Sleep(1) WEnd $mediaPos = $iPos / $sliderLength * $mediaLength $oPlayer.Controls.currentPosition = $mediaPos AdlibRegister("Slider", $adlibInterval) GUICtrlSetData($PauseButton, "Pause") EndSwitch If $oPlayer.playState = 1 Then ExitLoop EndIf WEnd WEnd Func PauseButton() If $Paused = False Then $oPlayer.Controls.Pause AdlibUnRegister() $Paused = True GUICtrlSetData($PauseButton, "Resume") Else $oPlayer.Controls.Play AdlibRegister("Slider") $Paused = False GUICtrlSetData($PauseButton, "Pause") EndIf EndFunc ;==>PauseButton Func Slider() $mediaPos = $oPlayer.Controls.currentPosition $iPos = $mediaPos * $sliderLength / $mediaLength GUICtrlSetPos($Shuttle, $iPos) GUICtrlSetData($Progress, Int($mediaPos / 60) & ":" & StringFormat("%02i", Mod($mediaPos, 60))) EndFunc ;==>Slider Also how can I set buttons to act like OnEvent button? I tried for $PauseButton but didn't make it. So I didn't do it for $PlayButton and $Shuttle. I want to add some lines from my main source to $PlayButton and since I used while loop in those lines (while the song is not over), I should control song (Pause/Resume, adjust position) anytime I want.

      So normally you can use the arrow keys in a GUI to walk through all the controls, not unlike the tab key. But I recently realized that if you put a Pic control in the midst of your normal controls it interrupts the ability to move through the controls (the tab key still works). I really liked the arrow key functionality, and I'm wondering if there's a way to restore that capability without capturing and processing the arrow keys manually, or just moving the Pic creation to a different part of the code.
      I've whipped up a bit of code with some examples:
      #include <GUIConstants.au3> $sPic = StringLeft(@AutoItExe, StringInStr(@AutoItExe, '\', 0, -1)) & '\Examples\GUI\logo4.gif' ; This is the normal behaviour I'd like to keep. GUICreate('Good Example', 250, 150, @DesktopWidth/2 - 250) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 0, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 30, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 60, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 90, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 120, 200, 30) GUISetState() While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd GUIDelete() ; This is the bad behaviour I'd like to avoid. GUICreate('Example 2', 250, 150, @DesktopWidth/2 - 250) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 0, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 0, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 30, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 30, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 60, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 60, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 90, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 90, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 120, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 120, 200, 30) GUISetState() While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd GUIDelete() ; This is almost what I want, but notice it doesn't "loop" around like the first example. ; And also having to create the pictures out of sequence with the buttons is not ideal. GUICreate('Example 3', 250, 150, @DesktopWidth/2 - 250) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 0, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 30, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 60, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 90, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('Button', 50, 120, 200, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 0, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 30, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 60, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 90, 50, 30) GUICtrlCreatePic($sPic, 0, 120, 50, 30) GUISetState() While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd GUIDelete() The first GUI that opens demonstrates the behaviour I like. The second GUI demonstrates the problem. The third GUI is almost a solution, but the focus won't wrap around (eg: You can't just hold the down arrow and have the focus loop through the buttons, it sticks at the end). Also creating the pic controls out of sequence with the buttons makes my code harder to read.

      I've used PowerPro for years and it had a feature that let you turn an array into a menu.  It also let you know if it got a right click. I liked the right click feature because it doubled the menu item usage ie left/right on the same menu item.  I tried recreate that usage with a context menu.   With _ArrayToMenu you can pass menu items for 1 and 2 dimensional arrays. Note you can indicate sub-menu but using a -> at the end of the item.  Use a - to make a separater. Optionally you can pass Tooltips by passing a second array. This array must have the same dimensions as the items array even if not all the elements contain tips. The UDF returns an array with this index of row (and if submenus column), the third element is 1 if right clicked otherwise 0 and the fourth element of the array is the label of the menu item. If the user escapes without choosing an item the the first element returns a -1.  Same thing if the user clicks on another window.   @error returns 1 if there was no array passed, 2 if the second array has different dimensions than the first.   If you use the same label in two parts of your menu you will have to distinguish them.  You can do that by additionally making sure that the selection matches the index number(s).  Note that you'll have to match the index number plus label before you match just the label because Switch will use the first match it can find.  In the example below I am using a check on which column the data is in.  If it's not in the first column then it must be the other "Beef".   Beef
      Fruit
      Col2 > Beef
                  Bread   $aR = _ArrayToMenu($aM) Switch $aR[3]
      Case "Beef" and $aR[2] = 0
             Beef1()
       Case "Beef"
             Beef2()
      EndSwitch   On a technical note I attached the context menu to the window itself not a dummy control and I didn't use _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu.  Instead I launched the context menu with "send shift-F10" and waited for GuiGetMsg() to give me the selection. Right click is picked up by GUIRegisterMsg WM_RBUTTONUP and Tooltips are done with GUIRegisterMsg WM_MENUSELECT. The whole thing is done with 3 functions. 
      I won't tell you how long it took me to figure this out but I'll say that on one of my early attempts it had two windows running at once and one was just to recieve the right click an tell the other it got it.  Suffice it to say I'm no wiz at Autoit but I really appreciate the support the community offers and I hope someone finds this useful. BTW I wrote a script to produce 1d and 2d auotit array code from excel in case you want to model your menu in excel. Here is the link.

      I had written a GUI with several buttons and I wanted one of the buttons to show its context menu regardless of the user right or left clicking the button.  The whole purpose of the button was to show the user a menu of options and a context menu fit the need just fine, but I needed it to display with either click option.  I came up with the code below to accomplish this but I feel like I might be missing some very obvious easier way to do this and I feel it's a little lame to be forcing a right click mouse action on the button as a result of the user doing a left click, but it works!
      Anyone have a suggestion of a better way to do this?  Otherwise, if this idea helps you, here you go.
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> LeftClickContextTest() Func LeftClickContextTest() Local $hGUI = GUICreate("My GUI", 200, 100) Local $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show Context", 15, 40, 85, 25) Local $close = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 110, 40, 85, 25) Local $context = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu($button) GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Test Context Item 1", $context) GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Test Context Item 2", $context) GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Test Context Item 3", $context) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $close ExitLoop Case $button MouseClick("right", MouseGetPos(0), MouseGetPos(1), 1, 0) EndSwitch WEnd EndFunc

      Hi, not sure if this really a conflict or im doing something wrong, but what is happening is that if i have $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT in place,
      i can move the GUI around as expected, but there's no context menu, removing it the menu is back.
      #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $GUI = GUICreate('test', 300, 200, 150, 300, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Local $MainMenu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu(-1) $OptMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Options", $MainMenu) GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("111", $OptMenu, 0, 0) GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("222", $OptMenu, 1, 0) GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("333", $OptMenu, 2, 0) GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("444", $OptMenu, 3, 0) While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd
