Background Of Label Control

Recommended Posts

I want to be able to have specific background color of a label control.

I modified the handling of WM_CTLCOLORSTATIC in application.cpp

     g_oGUI.SetColor((HDC) wParam, (HWND) lParam);
    /*  if (g_oGUI.m_nBackground != -1)
    SetBkColor((HDC)wParam, g_oGUI.m_nBackground);

and add special code in the gui class

void  CGuiBox::SetColor(HDC hdc, HWND hWnd)
    int nColor = GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNFACE);
    if (m_nBackground != -1)
  nColor= m_nBackground;

    int i= GetControlID(hWnd);
    if (i>0)
  if (GUICtrl[i].nBackColor>0)
     nColor = GUICtrl[i].nBackColor;

  if (GUICtrl[i].nTextColor>0)
     SetTextColor(hdc, GUICtrl[i].nTextColor);
    SetBkColor(hdc, nColor);

} // SetColor

I get the following result which does not fill the complete control area

the label have been created with the default value

Opt("GuiCoordMode", 2)

GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

GUISetControl("label", "label1", 0,0,100,300)
GUISetControl("label", "label2", 0,-1)
GUISetControlEx(-1,-1,$GUI_DOCKTOP+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM, "", 0xFF,0xFF00)

I need some help in this last feature.

do I will just to create the label with special style or I need more code.?

this new label color thing is french to me.... get it... ha ha.

OK, so .12 is final... now Jon needs to get this into unstable (beta) so we can have it released before May.


Sorry English speaking people difficult to do your flag with just labels.


Do you think it is possible to put label on label? I cannot have the latest defined displayed.

in controlex() I did this...

if (GUICtrl[m_iCurCtrl].cType == GUI_LABEL)
  if (nExt1 == -1 )
    GUICtrl[m_iCurCtrl].nTextColor = GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNTEXT);
    GUICtrl[m_iCurCtrl].nTextColor = nExt1;

  if (nExt2 == -1 )
    GUICtrl[m_iCurCtrl].nBackColor = GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNFACE);
    GUICtrl[m_iCurCtrl].nBackColor = nExt2;

I think the GUIcolor.au3 is coded badly...

GUISetControl("label", "label", 0,0)

or something...

if I do...

GUISetControl("label", "label", 0,-1)

I see my label.

Thanks Larry, :whistle:

Since the source for 102 is uploaded perhahs not final but at least a good start I am going to generate 102.12
