clickable image gif

How do i create a simple image . gif that is clickable and gets picked up by the gui afterwards.

Let me start to tell, i feel very a shame i could not resolve this one. 

Found some interesting forum threats about solving it by making invisible labels over images. I tried to create an invisible label over the image to work around my inability.

I tried to look in the helpfile under $BS_BITMAP also about 30 minutes ago i tried alot of diffrend codes under _GDIPlus_ helpfile. 

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Global $hGUI1, $hGUI2 = 9999
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
maingui()

Func maingui()
    Global $hGUI1 = GUICreate("test v0.5", 340, 185, 0, 0)
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "On_Close")
    Global $MenuItem2 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&Help")
    Global $MenuItem1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("About test", $MenuItem2)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "On_Button")
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    While 1
        Sleep(10)
    WEnd
EndFunc

Func gui2()
    $hGUI2 = GUICreate("About Instalocker", 500, 213, Default, Default, $WS_POPUP)
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "On_Close")
GUICtrlCreatePic("matrix.gif", 0, 0, 500, 213) ; Change this into a valid picture u have
Global $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 0, 0, 100, 100)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "On_Button")
    GUISetState()
EndFunc

Func On_Button()
    Switch @GUI_CtrlId
        Case $MenuItem1
            gui2()

        Case $button
            MsgBox(0, "You pressed on:", "button")
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

Func On_Close()
    Switch @GUI_WinHandle
        Case $hGUI1
            Exit
        Case $hGUI2
            GUIDelete($hGUI2)
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

Most definetly i overlooked something.

Edit: Updated the problematic version of the script

JoHanatCent,

Thanks for ur effort. I tried out the piece of code that u responded with. 

I noticed u are spamming line 29 the MsgBox when i complile. Im not sure if u where ment to do that? 

The image is still not clickable to use it as an on click case. Am i overlooking something here?

oke i just woke up fresh good morning, lets get this on the rails.   :sorcerer: I made a cut down version, of the problematic script i wrote. (First post) As u can see i am working with event mode & a double interface. 

The picture shows up behind the button and the button will become unusable. Any idea how that works?

Which do you want, a clickable picture, or one with a button on top? If you want the button to work, you need to disable the picture after creating it, see the help file.

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $gui_disable)


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.

BrewMan,

Thanks for Ur response. Really helpful to know u need to disable the picture to make the button to work.

I would also really like to know from you, how to make a picture directly clickable.

For now i solved it by putting the picture in the button with:

Global $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 0, 0, 500, 213, 0x8080) ; 0x8080 = $BS_BITMAP
    GUICtrlSetImage(-1, "matrix.bmp", -1)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "On_Close")
