Split color.

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to split the color of a button or any other function?

Like left side of the button being green(0x00D000) and the right side being black(0x000000)

I'll try to post some code in a little bit if that will help.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Create a suitable bmp with the split colours and then add it to the button like this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
#include <GuiImageList.au3>

$sImage = "BMP_Path"

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

; Simple bitmap - must be same size as button
$cButton1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Text", 10, 10, 80, 30, $BS_BITMAP)
GUICtrlSetImage($cButton1, $sImage)

; More complicated - but will size bitmap to fill button AND allow overlaid text
$cButton2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Text", 100, 10, 80, 30)
$hImage = _GUIImageList_Create(80, 30, 5, 3) ; Set button size here
_GUIImageList_AddBitmap($hImage, $sImage)
_GUICtrlButton_SetImageList($cButton2, $hImage, 4)


While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
All clear? :)
