Hi All,

I'm sure this is a simple one to answer and I have searched and experimented before I asked (well enough hopefully!)

I'm trying to set a button background to be white, the font colour red, centred vertically and horizontally and multi-line. Can it be done?

Here is my example code:

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstantS.au3>
#include <FontConstants.au3>
#include "ColorConstants.au3"

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$GUI = GUICreate("GUI", 250, 300)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")

$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & @CRLF & "One", 160, 185, 85, 110, BitOR($BS_MULTILINE, $BS_CENTER, $BS_VCENTER, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_White)
GUICtrlSetFont($Button, 14, 800, 0, "MV Boli", 5)
GUICtrlSetColor($Button, 0xFF0000)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button, "_Exit")
GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

With everything I have tried, this is the closest I get, button white, font red, correct font, but no centring and sometimes no multi-line (depending on button text and font size). I saw I might have to add the default button forced style back in so I did that too $WS_EX_WindowEdge.

Thanks for any help and apologies if I've missed an obvious answer to this elsewhere.

This works for me.

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstantS.au3>
#include <FontConstants.au3>
#include "ColorConstants.au3"

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$GUI = GUICreate("GUI", 250, 300)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")

$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & @CRLF & "One", 160, 185, 85, 110, BitOR($SS_CENTER, $SS_CENTERIMAGE)) ; $BS_MULTILINE, $BS_CENTER, $BS_VCENTER, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetFont($Button, 14, 800, 0, "MV Boli", 5)
GUICtrlSetColor($Button, 0xFF0000)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button, "_Exit")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Thanks Reb, tried your code and it centres it but no multi-line, and if I put multi-line on the end it centres it at the top instead and it ignores the @CRLF in the text. Did I do something wrong?

I guess you could always fake a button with a label.

 

include <Constants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstantS.au3>
#include <FontConstants.au3>
#include "ColorConstants.au3"

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$GUI = GUICreate("GUI", 250, 300)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")
$bBm = "Button" & @CRLF & "One"
$Button = GUICtrlCreateLabel(@CRLF & $bBm, 160, 185, 85, 110, BitOR($SS_CENTER, $BS_VCENTER),$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE) ;, $SS_CENTERIMAGE)) ; $BS_MULTILINE, $BS_CENTER, $BS_VCENTER, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetFont($Button, 14, 800, 0, "MV Boli", 5)
GUICtrlSetColor($Button, 0xFF0000)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button, "_Exit")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

reb, you're using $ss_* styles in a button control, $ss_* styles are for static controls, labels/icons/images. There is no button control constant that has the same value as $ss_center or $ss_centerimage (although there is a constant with the same value as _centerimage, it's used in a checkbox control), so there's no telling what either of those settings might produce as a result if anything. 

I've tried every combination of button style setting and I have not been able to produce a button with multiline and vertically centered text. The best I could come up with was to add a @CRLF in front of the button text to get it to add another line above the text.

@ BrewManNH

I revised my post just above yours using label constants.  I see your point.

Thank you.

$GUI = GUICreate("GUI", 250, 300)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")
$bBm = "Button" & @CRLF & "One"
$Button = GUICtrlCreateLabel(@CRLF & $bBm, 160, 185, 85, 110, $SS_CENTER,$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE) ;, $SS_CENTERIMAGE)) ; $BS_MULTILINE, $BS_CENTER, $BS_VCENTER, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))

Thank you both for your answers, I didn't even think of adding a @CRLF before the text! Unless anyone else can tell me (us) where we're going wrong I guess it's just one of those things I'll have to work around. Anyone else?

      Hello Everyone,
      New Guy here. This is a two-part question, hopefully easy enough though. I know it's ugly coding, this is because I have only a couple hours worth of coding experience and could really use some help.
      1) When I single click the button I want one action (like playing a sound clip) and when I double click the button I want a different action (such as opening dialogue box to ask for soundclip directory address). At the bottom of the script I made a comment which one I would like single click versus double click.
      2) I can not get the FileOpenDialogue to save the file address to the config.ini file at the 'One' position on the .ini.
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <Sound.au3> Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $OneID _Main() Func _Main() GUICreate("Form1", 156, 86, 281, 276) $OneID = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button", 15, 17, 122, 37) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($OneID, "OnOne") GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "OnExit") GUISetState() While 1 While 1 Sleep(1000) WEnd WEnd EndFunc ;---------------Functions------------- While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func OnOne() ; ******************Single Click for this action**************** $OneID = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", $OneID) If $OneID = True Then SoundPlay($OneID, @HotKeyPressed) Else ; *******Double Click for this action*****And Help Saving File Address to config.ini 'One'*********** $OneID = FileOpenDialog("Select file", @WorkingDir, "All (*.*)") IniWrite("config.ini", "Config", "One", $OneID) $OneID = InputBox("Enter Information", "Short Name for File?", "") IniWrite("config.ini", "Config", "NameOne", $OneID) EndIf EndFunc Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you need anymore clarity as to what exactly I'm trying to do, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks so much!

      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.

      I'm trying to click a button on a web page. I have added a couple of MsgBox lines to allow me to watch what happens on the page. As you can see the first half of my script enters data into text boxes on the page. I have no problem there. I just cannot click on the region buttons. The "set focus" line causes an outline to appear around the EU button and the "click button" line causes the "Pick a Region" text to disappear. Here is the code I have so far.
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://questchecker.com/") Local $iQuestID = "123456" Local $sCharacterName = "CharacterName" Local $colForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE) $iCount = 0 For $oForm In $colForms $oFormElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm) For $oFormElement In $oFormElements $iCount = $iCount + 1 Local $sTagName = StringLower($oFormElement.tagName) Local $sElementType = $oFormElement.type Local $sElementName = $oFormElement.name Switch $iCount Case 6 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, "MyRealm", 0) ; realm Case 7 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, $sCharacterName, 0) Case 8 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, $iQuestID, 0) EndSwitch Next Next Local $oButtons = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "questForm") For $oButton In $oButtons If _IEFormElementGetValue($oButton) = "US" Then MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to set focus") _IEAction($oButton, "focus") MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to click button") _IEAction($oButton, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to quit") _IEQuit($oIE) Exit

      My code.
      Does not work
      ;~ [optional] Control styles: ;~ $ES_AUTOHSCROLL - Automatically scrolls text to the right by 10 characters when the user types a character at the end of the line. ;~ $ES_AUTOVSCROLL - Automatically scrolls text up one page when the user presses the ENTER key on the last line. Local $hEditNewText = _GUICtrlEdit_Create($hGUI, "This is a test" & @CRLF & "Another Line", 8, 500, 715, 100) Local $iStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle($hEditNewText), $GWL_STYLE) ; get style Local $iExStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle($hEditNewText), $GWL_EXSTYLE) ; get extended style ;GUICtrlSetStyle($hEditNewText, BitXOR($iStyle, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL)) ; remove hscroll left to right (force wrap) GUICtrlSetStyle($hEditNewText, BitAND($iStyle, BitNOT($ES_AUTOHSCROLL))) https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Setting_Styles
      Also tried this
      ;~ https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/113598-solved-scrolling-read-only-text-display-using-edit-not-input-control/ Local $hEditNewText = GUICtrlCreateEdit("This is a test" & @CRLF & "Another Line", 8, 500, 715, 100) Local $iStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle($hEditNewText), $GWL_STYLE) ; get style Local $iExStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle($hEditNewText), $GWL_EXSTYLE) ; get extended style GUICtrlSetStyle($hEditNewText, BitAND($iStyle, BitNOT($ES_AUTOHSCROLL)))  
      However, this works:
      Local $hEditNewText = GUICtrlCreateEdit("This is a test" & @CRLF & "Another Line", 8, 500, 715, 100, $ES_WANTRETURN + $WS_VSCROLL + $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $ES_MULTILINE + $WS_TABSTOP) My question stands. How to change the STYLE of an EDIT control?

      Good evening, I need to configure a graphical interface where the contents of some "Button" are taken from a file I have foreseen to include with "#include".
      For the text no problem, the problem comes when I'm going to assign the color to the background of the "Button", the "Button" becomes BLACK WHITE.
      I included in the included file as follows:
      $ Promotion_Color = "$ Color_Red"
      Clarity I also imported #include the library <ColorConstants.au3>
      In the main program I wrote like this:
      $ Promotion = GUICtrlCreateButton ($ Promotion, Dim_Fin_X + $ 170, $ Dim_Fin_Y, 750.120)
      GUICtrlSetFont (-1, 70, 800, 0, "Calibri")
      GUICtrlSetBkColor ($ Promotion, $ Promotion_Color); will change background color
      I thank all those who want to help me
      Alberto
