I don't understand, I have the progress color working on other apps right now, but I just created this simple basic gui, and the color wont set.

Win 8.1, Autoit 3.3.12

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

$Form133 = GUICreate("DB Meter", 422, 200, 0, 0)
        GUISetBkColor("0xff0000")

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(0, 0, 222, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, 50)
    ;   GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 16711680)
        GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xff0000)
    ;   GUICtrlSetColor(-1, "0xff0000")


    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Form133)
Sleep(3000)

What am I not seeing, I've never had this issue before? Is Win8 considered Vista style?

You have to add the 2 lines that I commented below.

#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPITheme.au3> ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

$Form133 = GUICreate("DB Meter", 422, 200, 0, 0)
GUISetBkColor("0xff0000")

$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(0, 0, 222, 20)
_WinAPI_SetWindowTheme(GUICtrlGetHandle($Progress1), "", "") ; <<<<<<<<<<<<
GUICtrlSetData(-1, 50)
;   GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 16711680)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xff0000)
;   GUICtrlSetColor(-1, "0xff0000")


GUISetState()
Sleep(3000)

 

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

The WinAPI UDF has that function in it now.
