Using picture as a button problem

Recommended Posts

I create  a picture as a button

$historyon = GUICtrlCreatePic("off.jpg", 280, 500, 30, 30)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
$ButtonNext = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 280, 500, 30, 30)
 GUICtrlSetCursor(-1, 0)
 GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_ENABLE)
_GUICtrl_OnHoverRegister(-1, "_Hover_Proc", "_Leave_Hover_Proc", "PrimaryDown_Proc")

From the innitiate state the button on the gui is in "off" position. When the button is pressed the picture should be changed to "on" position

Later on I register the function for the button when it is pressed

Func PrimaryDown_Proc($historyon)
     local $buttonon, $buttonoff
    Switch $historyon
        Case $ButtonNext

        if $historyswitchedon=0 then
            $buttonon = GUICtrlCreatePic("on.jpg", 280, 500, 30, 30)
            GUICtrlDelete ($buttonoff)
;MsgBox (0, "", "0")

        if $historyswitchedon=1 then
            $buttonoff = GUICtrlCreatePic("off.jpg", 280, 500, 30, 30)
            GUICtrlDelete ($buttonon)
;MsgBox (0, "", "1")


But I am getting not stable result: Sometimes, the picture of button is changed directly when I press on it, sometimes it is not changed, sometimes it is keeping changing from position "on" to position "off" while the button is being pressed several times. What am I doing wrong?

Don't keep recreating the button, just use GUICtrlSetImage to change from one image to the other.

Also, if you need more help, please post a runnable script.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I tried GUICTRLSETIMAGE but it seems not to work there

I guess I should have posted the question in this brunch

      I created a program that allows the user to create a countdown showing days, hours, minutes, and seconds left.

      The colors fade from dark to light. You may also change the color of each column, red, green, or blue. Or shades of grey.

      The program also uses MrCreatoR's

      If you choose not to use the hover effect, just remove the lines of code that uses it.

      It makes it much more stylish with it.


      I made this because of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim !
