Change label control text & (bk-)color for other window

Recommended Posts



I like to change the text and (bk-)color of a label control for an other window (which is indeed another compiled AutoIt script) by using window and/or control handle. Changing the text seems to work fine - using:

_GUICtrlEdit_SetText(ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Static; INSTANCE:1]"), "New text")

... surely there's a better way to do this. But how to change (bk-)color? I guess I have to use something like:

_WinAPI_SetTextColor(ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Static; INSTANCE:1]"), 0x00FF00)

... with no effect. Anyone any idea?
