I cant place a button ontop of a label

3 posts in this topic

i wanto to use a bar at the bottom of the gui, in there i want to place controls, but for some reason the controls shows under the bar(created by a label)

Also if there is a better way to make this, i will appreciate it 

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

$AreaWidth = 1224
$AreaHeight = 768
$hGUI = GUICreate("Hello", $AreaWidth, $AreaHeight, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX ))

;a nice looking bar to put controls in it
$aPos = WinGetPos("[ACTIVE]")
$arealbbot = ($aPos[2] * 10) / 100
$arealbbotlocy = ($aPos[3] * 90) / 100
$label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 0, $arealbbotlocy, $AreaWidth, $arealbbot)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xd7e4f2)

;this button doesnt start ontop :(
Global $hButton2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("i want to be ontop", 0, 730, 200, 30)
GuiCtrlSetState($hButton2, $GUI_ONTOP)

GUICtrlSetResizing($hButton2, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
GUICtrlSetResizing($label3, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Disable the label and remove the GUICtrlSetState line for the button:

$label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 0, $arealbbotlocy, $AreaWidth, $arealbbot)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xd7e4f2)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

Global $hButton2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("i am be ontop", 0, 730, 200, 30)
