Setting ListView background color doesn't work properly

Recommended Posts

Kira16651

Hello,

I'm trying to set the background color for the listview and the window. I just can't figure this one out though, no matter how much I look at it.

I cut the code down to the bare minimum. Still not working as intended.

You are supposed to select the color in the menu. Then the function _SwitchBackgroundColor is called with the string for the color.

Works fine for the window background. But the ListView background is messed up.

First, the window is grey and the text background is white. Text background should be white, since the function is called before the main loop.

Whenever I click the corresponding menu, first the window changes color, than on the second click the text background changes color. Why this requires two clicks is beyond me.

Does anyone have any idea why that is?

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

      Hello, 
      i have a Problem with  _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes, everything is working as excepted if u are on Windows 7.

      But if u are on Windows 10 the transparent background of a control is not clickable anymore. 

      Could someone help?

      Please see example below, put cmd.jpg into the same folder as Example.au3

      Please see trigger.jpg to see which sections are not clickable in Windows 10 (the red dots, the green dots are clickable) on Windows 7 the red ones and green ones are clickable.
       
      The same problem occurs if i use

      Hello everyones reading this post,
      I'm struggling at resizing properly my radio buttons to fit long text inside without affecting others radio buttons and also adjust position of them relative to the string.
      I tried with _StringSize UDF but I guess im too tired to figure out how to use it correctly..
      I also tried: _Control_SetWidth2Text I found on this forum, it work aslong im not maximizing GUI (radio text is gone when I maximize and maximize is a must)
       
      here is the code example, I hope someone can figure out (sorry if guictrlsetpos is not included in the example, I know thats probably the way to go but I wanted to make sure there is nothing better before use it)
      Thank you

      Hello,

      im searching like 6 hours and i didnt found the right solution.

      Im trying to build a treeview from a directory and its subfolders etc.

      This function give me right treeview, but i cant color each item seperated.

       
      #include <GuiTreeView.au3> $hGui = GUICreate("Demo1", 600, 400) $hTreeView = _GUICtrlTreeView_Create($hGui, 10, 10, 580, 380) GUISetState() _GUICtrlTreeView_BeginUpdate($hTreeView) ListFiles_ToTreeView(@ScriptDir, 0) _GUICtrlTreeView_EndUpdate($hTreeView) Do Until GUIGetMsg() = -3 Func ListFiles_ToTreeView($sSourceFolder, $hItem) Local $sFile ; Force a trailing \ If StringRight($sSourceFolder, 1) <> "\" Then $sSourceFolder &= "\" ; Start the search Local $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sSourceFolder & "*.*") ; If no files found then return If $hSearch = -1 Then Return ; This is where we break the recursive loop <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ; Now run through the contents of the folder While 1 ; Get next match $sFile = FileFindNextFile($hSearch) ; If no more files then close search handle and return If @error Then ExitLoop ; This is where we break the recursive loop <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ; Check if a folder If @extended Then ; If so then call the function recursively ListFiles_ToTreeView($sSourceFolder & $sFile, _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($hTreeView, $hItem, $sFile)) Else ; If a file than write path and name _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($hTreeView, $hItem, $sFile) EndIf WEnd ; Close search handle FileClose($hSearch) EndFunc ;==>ListFiles_ToTreeView
      So i am searching for the exact same function just with
      GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem
      instead of 
      _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild
       
      Ps: i have a folder structure where i like to color each item green if a file only exist once and red if it exist more than once.

      Could someone help?
       
      Solution:

      Title pretty much says it all. Im wondering what button the "primary mouse button" is, and while im here i would also like to know what the "secondary mouse button" is. I´m guessing its the left and right mouse buttons but i could not confirm this.
      Thank you!
