Detecting a click within a certain region of a window?

5 posts in this topic

Hello guys! I have been re-designing some forms for my GUI and I have changed to using GDI+ to render in all my content, but now I have a problem, I can't detect when certain parts of the GDI render area have been clicked, I have considered trying to detect the mouse click, then check for the active window, but then I would have to idea how to calculate if the mouse is within a certain region.

Any assistance at all with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I have already tried putting transparent labels over the area but the labels arnt transparent when placed over a GDI render area.

Awesome, but I'm little confused about how I define the square area to be checked

I see below

$aPoints[0][0] = 5; Number of  sides of Polygon
    $aPoints[1][0] = 100
    $aPoints[1][1] = 100
    $aPoints[2][0] = 200
    $aPoints[2][1] = 150
    $aPoints[3][0] = 200
    $aPoints[3][1] = 200
    $aPoints[4][0] = 150
    $aPoints[4][1] = 100
    $aPoints[5][0] = 70
    $aPoints[5][1] = 200
    $aPoints[6][0] = 100;Last point same as 1st point. Polygon is closed
    $aPoints[6][1] = 100
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawPolygon($hGraphic, $aPoints)

But I'm unsure of what the $apoints are, or how I should format them to make a square, I'm unsure if they're coordinates on the gui, or just data to define the polygon size and shape which it then placed in a certain location, and somehow the udf detects if there is a click within it, could someone clarify what these values are representing?

Nevermind I read the script a little closer and I understand now, thanks.
