Can't background color on a status bar

Recommended Posts

pjrebordao

Hi

On a small script I made, I have a status bar created with:

$stBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($MainForm)

And it works perfectly. However, if I try to change the background color with:

_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetBkColor($stBar, 0x0000FF)

Nothing happens. The status bar Bk color remains the same (grey).

Any ideas ?

pjrebordao,

Looks like a bug - it does not work in either the release or Beta versions. I will raise a ticket.

Edit: In fact it is not a bug as explained in this ticket.

LarsJ,

Excellent - I will add that to the remarks section for _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetBkColor in the Help file.

Edit: And done,

I think the example in the helpfile will work if you add these commands:

#include <WinAPITheme.au3>
...
_WinAPI_SetWindowTheme( $hStatus, "", "" )

 

​Thanks ! That seems to do the trick.

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.

      This is a magnifier-color-picker thing mostly based on some code I found on Stack Overflow, of all places. At least all the clever bits are from there. 
      I'd love to use this code inside an app I'm working on. But it has an issue. The first time the mag pops up it works perfectly, but the second and subsequent times, it's a boring grey square. 
      One of you smart dudes will probably look at this and go, "Aha!", but I'm stumped.
