So I thought it would be cool to use my Gravatar account to display my gravatar in a local GUI.
I use this code:
#cs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- AutoIt Version: 220.127.116.11 Author: Skysnake Script Function: Example to download avatar from Gravatar and display locally #ce ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ; Script Start ; includes #include <Crypt.au3> #include <InetConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> ; declare Global vars Global $md5GraMail = '' ; will store email for Grvatar request request GravatarLogin() GetAvatar() Func GravatarLogin() ; get the email required for downloading the Gravatar Local $sGraMail = InputBox("Get Gravatar", "What is your email registered with Gravatar?", "firstname.lastname@example.org", "", -1, -1, 0, 0) ; from http://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/hash/ ; make the hash ; Local $dHash = _Crypt_HashData(GUICtrlRead($g_idInputEdit), $g_iAlgorithm) ; Create a hash of the text entered $md5GraMail = _Crypt_HashData(StringLower(StringStripWS($sGraMail, 8)), $CALG_MD5) ; lose the left two '0x' chars and convert to lower case $md5GraMail = StringLower(StringTrimLeft($md5GraMail, 2)) ; Display the result.

Local $iBytesSize = InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADREAD) Local $iFileSize = FileGetSize($sFilePath) ; Close the handle returned by InetGet. InetClose($hDownload) ; Display details about the total number of bytes read and the filesize. MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The total download size: " & $iBytesSize & @CRLF & _ "The total filesize: " & $iFileSize, 1) Local $MyGravatar = @ScriptDir & "\Gravatar.jpg" FileCopy($sFilePath, $MyGravatar) MsgBox(0, "Now showing!", $MyGravatar, 5) ; make gui and show file GUICreate("My Gravatar in a GUI " & $MyGravatar, 350, 300, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_SYSMENU) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered Local $idPic = GUICtrlCreatePic($MyGravatar, 50, 50, 80, 80) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Loop until the user exits. While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd ;FileDelete($MyGravatar) ; Delete the file. FileDelete($sFilePath) EndFunc ;==>GetAvatar Now, here is the issue.
If I use the example from the Gravatar site, located here:
Then this code 205e460b479e2e5b48aec07710c08d50 downloads this pic (not me)
AND it displays correctly.
However, If I download my own Gravatar, I see the image in the @Script folder, BUT IT DOES NOT DISPLAY. The same with the retro image. To be clear, this image downloads, but is not displayed.
I guess it has something to do with the format of my gravatar. Or that the display funtion GUICtrlCreatePic() does not like my gravatar.
I would be grateful if someone would be willing to test this and may offer a suggestion or two...
Tell me, please, why in the application of different styles($SS_BLACKFRAME, $SS_BLACKRECT, etc.) of frames stops working function Msg().
And why in the application of certain frame styles($SS_BLACKFRAME) do not even picture displayed?

I created a listview with icons and click control to change the background and works very well, I tried to enter the up and down controls, but in this case the listview disappears , you know how to fix it.
my script is long so.. I copied an example from the forum "Melba" and added the necessary just to show you.
Here's a simple script I'm testing the ScreenCapture function with.
#include <ScreenCapture.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ; Capture region _ScreenCapture_Capture(@ScriptDir & "\image.bmp", 290,18,1465,652,0) $form=GUICreate("Test",1175,634,290,18,BitOR($WS_SYSMENU,$WS_POPUP),$WS_EX_COMPOSITED) $PSimage=GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\image.bmp", 0,0,1175,634) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) MsgBox(0,"","Test of screen cap and display.") .
The above script captures an area of the screen (the SciTE editor with this script open), writes it to image.bmp, and displays image.bmp. The problem I'm having is when image.bmp is displayed using GUICtrlCreatePic the result is fuzzy. Here's a SnagIt screen capture of what GUICtrlCreatePic displays.
Attached is image.bmp, which is sharp and equivalent to seeing the actual script open in SciTE on-screen.
Any suggestions for displaying an accurate rendition of ScreenCapture's output? (Must be borderless, no chrome, etc. -- equivalent to what my test script yields.)
To save future readers a little sweat I'm editing my original post to insert the following:
After trying various suggested scripting approaches, some of which introduced new problems and some which had the same problem described here, I tried my script and a few others on another computer. No white flashes, tears, glitches. So I brought it back to my main box and disabled the Intel GPU that was feeding a 3rd monitor. Down to two monitors connected to a single NVidia GPU the visual glitches disappeared. Who would'a thought?!
That said, some of the replies that follow provide valuable insights into the various ways to skin this cat using AutoIt. Some suggested scripts introduced new problems so they might be instructive about approaches to avoid. Ultimately, JohnOne suggested an elegantly simple script that perfectly accomplishes my goal.
I want to display a 800x600 picture (i.e., not full-screen) without a border, close-box, title, etc. I then want to replace that picture with another one -- cleanly. Think of an old-fashioned dual-projector slide show where there's no black-out or other interruption to the image on screen. This way I can start with a background image, then add elements to it seamlessly (once called "a build", i.e., pseudo-animation). The image format doesn't matter to me.
I can't use an animated GIF or video because my code is doing things in the background between images, so timing varies.
I'm having bad luck using an AutoIt form to accomplish this (GUICtrlCreatePic, followed by subsequent GUICtrlSetImage's). The result is a glitch -- usually a white flash or tear in the picture -- at almost every image change. (see 10/10/13 post entitled "random visual glitch when using GUICtrlSetImage"). So I guess that's out.
SplashImageOn blanks out the first image before displaying the next (like a single-projector slide show), so it's not seamless -- plus there's still a tiny border visible.
$var = Default SplashImageOn("","image1.bmp",$var,$var,$var,$var,1) sleep(2000) SplashImageOn("","image2.bmp",$var,$var,$var,$var,1) sleep(2000) SplashImageOn("","image3.bmp",$var,$var,$var,$var,1) sleep(2000) Any suggestions?
