_GUICtrlButton_SetImageList() doesn't work with GUICtrlSetColor()

5 posts in this topic

I spent quite a while trying to figure out why I couldn't set an icon to my button, using BrewManNH's sample below.  Then I decided to strip the code until I determined why it wouldn't draw.

I found that apparently _GUICtrlButton_SetImageList() doesn't work if GUICtrlSetColor() is used on the same control.

BrewManNH's sample:

My test code:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
#include <guiimagelist.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### 
$frmMain = GUICreate("", 730, 530, -1, -1)
$btnClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 560, 472, 161, 24)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
;GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x800000)
GUISetState()
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

$hImage = _GUIImageList_Create(16, 16, 5)
_GUIImageList_AddIcon($hImage, "Cancel.ico")
_GUICtrlButton_SetImageList($btnClose, $hImage)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Why is this a problem?  Well, my project has buttons inside group controls.  The group controls have the title text set in a different color.  Since controls within the group controls take on the colors of their parents by default, I have to set the color of each child control individually.  In doing that, _GUICtrlButton_SetImageList() breaks.

Any ideas?

SlowCoder74,

Colouring buttons is not a good idea - as several threads have explained in the past. There is a bug deep within the AutoIt core code (which means it will not be fixed any time soon - see #376) which causes all sorts of problems when buttons are coloured - they trap the ENTER key, lose styles 9as you have discovered) and generally misbehave. In my opinion, best not to colour buttons. ;)

Melba, I would expect nothing less than a near-instant reply from you. ^_^

The bug report you linked only seems to cite GUICtrlSetBkColor(), not GUICtrlSetColor().  Is GUICtrlSetColor() also affected in the same scope?  (I know that sounds like a dumb question, as I'm having problems with it, but one can never be too sure.)

SlowCoder74,

I have no idea, but it would not surprise me in the least. :(
