zOrdering doesn't work as expected


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm trying to z-order an inputbox and a label, but they doesn't work as expected...

Look at this script:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>

Local $left = 100, $top = 100
$hGui = GUICreate("", 400, 200, $left, $top)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("RED LABEL", 9, 9, 302, 102)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_RED)
$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("WHITE INPUT", 10, 10, 300, 100)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_ONTOP)
;GUICtrlSetStyle(-1, "", $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
GUISetState()

Sleep(2000)
MouseMove(10 + $left + 20, 10 + $top + 30)

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
WEnd

"White input" is not showed until I MouseMove over it, although it has the OnTop attribute.

It has the same behaviour with TopMost property.

Is this a bug? :sweating:

j0kky,

Just disable the label:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>

Local $left = 100, $top = 100
$hGui = GUICreate("", 400, 200, $left, $top)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("RED LABEL", 9, 9, 302, 102)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_RED)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("WHITE INPUT", 10, 10, 300, 100)
GUISetState()

Sleep(2000)
MouseMove(10 + $left + 20, 10 + $top + 30)

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
WEnd

Thank you very much!

Just another question: is there a way to get it work if I write first the inputbox?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>

Local $left = 100, $top = 100
$hGui = GUICreate("", 400, 200, $left, $top)
$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("WHITE INPUT", 10, 10, 300, 100)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("RED LABEL", 9, 9, 302, 102)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_RED)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState()

Sleep(2000)
MouseMove(10 + $left + 20, 10 + $top + 30)

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
WEnd

j0kky,

Why not just create the controls in the order that gives you what you want? Why create them the other way round?

j0kky,

And there I was expending little grey cells:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Local $left = 100, $top = 100

$hGui = GUICreate("", 400, 200, $left, $top)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("RED LABEL", 9, 9, 302, 102)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_RED)

$cInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("WHITE INPUT", 10, 10, 300, 100)

GUISetState()

$aPos = ControlGetPos($hGUI, "", $cInput)
_WinAPI_SetWindowPos(GUICtrlGetHandle($cInput), $HWND_TOP, $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $aPos[2], $aPos[3], $SWP_SHOWWINDOW)

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
WEnd

But I would suggest disabling is easier!
