GUI Button Text Alignment & Text Color question

8 posts in this topic

I'm trying to change the text color of a button without changing the text alignment, but I must be missing something.

Here is my sample script:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
Local $Form1 = GUICreate("button text color test", 250, 250)
;BUTTON 1 WITH NO TEXT COLOR CHANGE
Local $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Line 1 of text" & @CRLF & "Line 2 of text" _
        & @CRLF & "Line 3 of text", 50, 10, 150, 70, BitOR($BS_MULTILINE,$BS_LEFT))

;BUTTON 2 WITH TEXT COLOR CHANGE
Local $button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Line 1 of text" & @CRLF & "Line 2 of text" _
        & @CRLF & "Line 3 of text", 50, 100, 150, 70, BitOR($BS_MULTILINE,$BS_LEFT))
GUICtrlSetColor ( $button2, 0xCC0066 )

GUISetState()
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        Case $Button1
            MsgBox(0, "ControlID = " & $Button1, "Button 1 was Pressed!")
        Case $Button2
            MsgBox(0, "ControlID = " & $Button1, "Button 2 was Pressed!")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

 

The top button is formatted the way I want with the text aligned to the left and vertically centered top to bottom in the button, and it contains the shaded button background.

The only change made to $button2 is the extra GUICtrlSetColor ( $button2, 0xCC0066 ) below the button.  It does change the text color to the desired color, but the vertical formatting and background shading are screwed up.

Am I doing something wrong in my code, or is this just what will happen if I try and color text in a button?  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

tbwalker

Thanks for the link... I was afraid it was going to be something like that.  I guess I'll have to keep digging for another solution to the problem.

is it misguided to suggest _GUICtrlButton_SetImageList() ?
