I'm absolutely new to FreeBasic, so there might be much better approches! 

May be new to FreeBasic but you learn quickly !

Nice work UEZ ! ;)

Thanks wakillon.

 

FreeBasic has similar syntax as AutoIt. So it's not very hard to learn the "basics".

 

Btw, since some days I'm writing a DLL for image filter effects (SymmetricNearestNeighbour, Jitter, Median, Kuwahara, Convolution, etc.) which I will release soon.

@UEZ ,

Did you use any step by step tutorals or any books. I have installed FB but i didn't even started learning.

Hi GDI King :thumbsup:

When i compile Plasma Variante 5 with FB Editor i get a warning : 

warning 1(1): Passing different pointer types, at parameter 2 of GDIPCREATESOLIDFILL()

So, why use @hBrush instead of hBrush ? :huh2:

Edit : i use FbEdit FreeBASIC code editor v 1.0.6.8 (Last Update: 2016-03-19)

These are warnings only. Currently I'm not able to answer what to do to get rid of these warnings.

As far as I understood the @ char is the address in the memory.

@UEZ: very interesting line of development.  Thanks for posting.  If and when you add any other examples, a "latest and greatest" ZIP of everything together would be much appreciated.

      Hello,
      I am making a program where the button is an image that "changes" when specific conditions are fullfilled. Problem is that these images have different dimensions and when a smaller picture is displayed over a bigger one both will be seen, therefore i would like the images to be hidden, invincible or, alternatively, deleted.
      I have tried using _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear() with no luck
      However that might just be me not using it right as im quite new to autoit
      Here is the code if you want to test run it:
      Thanks to everyone helping!

      Just press the lmb and move your mouse. When lmb is released you can adjust the size of the window by dragging the white rectangle to any direction. Rmb will move the marked area.
      Press ESC to get the coordinates of the marked region.
      If you have any improvements, please post it here.
       
      Tested on Win10 x64 only.

      I'm building a tool to remotely monitor CPU usage on my server.
      I have a working tool but I have a few issues I'd like some help with.
      1. The app uses more system memory on a continual growth rate...  It eventually starts displaying strange artifacts and the background flashes between black and and white behind the GDI+ elements.  I determined this couldn't be left to run for any amount of time (greater than 15-20 minutes) - Very frustrating.
      I suspect it's because it keeps drawing new GDI+ elements to replace the previous cycle ... the $bar1 = "" is enough to remove the image and allow the new image to be drawn there, but I don't have a handle for the original GDI+ element to throw it away... Not sure where they go...
      I also suspect there could be a better way to do what I'm doing here, but from a problem solving perspective - this is what I came up with - I will accept suggestions for how better to accomplish the same / better or acceptable results  
      I will not however accept corrections on grammar, punctuation or commenting - I didn't comment this as I was going, I use the variables that make sense to me (or as they were when I lifted them from the scraps I found on the internet) and you can never be too careful with punctuation.
      2. I have a WMI query that is used to remotely pull the CPU data from the server - if I supply the wrong credentials the app crashes... I tried to make it show an error and go back to allow me to try again ... doesn't work. Any help with catching that error and preventing the crash would be super helpful. (works great if the credentials are correct; domain or local)
