GUICtrlCreateAvi problems starting

3 posts in this topic

I'm having issues with this starting automatically when my control starts off hidden. But when it starts off being displayed there is no issue in starting automatically. The problem is I can't update the state...as far as I know...because I'm showing and hiding it from a separate process/app. Any ideas or workarounds? It's originally being called like:

GUICtrlCreateAvi($IMAGE_GENERAL_ARRAY[31], 0, 135, 435, 285, 40, $ACS_AUTOPLAY)
        GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)

I originally tried an animated gif, but I know that's a no go with autoit.

Thanks.

Cant you delete the instance and recreate it? Is this embedded in another gui window? Could you start the window shown and then hide the window? Does that work?

ControlShow/ControlHide is probably what you're looking for.


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 hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
