_WinAPI_DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow in Windows 10

7 posts in this topic




Is there a way to color it? Like the grey/black of the notification area?
The notification area has a slight blur as well and it would be nice if you were able to build applications like this .. :)

It seems that you have to use GDI+ or other stuff to color it.

Here I enabled the blur-behind on a layered window and drawn a partly transparent rectangle and some stuff on top.

Yeah that's the way I've done it too. I created a layered GUI and set the background layer with the blur style and I colored the layer in front using a transparent PNG as background. This works fine :)

Friends! People make it so that the blur is applied together with the color. Below are two examples of code:

But there is a problem — you need to manage the size of the curbs. If borders are narrowed or absent in the design, then these parameters must be specified in function _WindowCompozitionAttribute. How to do it - you need to look for documentation ...

      When I want to test Example 1 of Function _IECreate (AutoIt Help File), I see that function _IECreate doesn't work in Windows 10.
      Syntax Check (Ctrl+F5) gives no errors.

      ; Create a browser window and navigate to a website #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.autoitscript.com")

      The DriveGetDrive command returned all drives (option "ALL") for years now and my program could always rely on that function. Suddenly a drive letter that was created with the subst command does not appear in the list of drives anymore. And it clearly did, because I used to react to a certain subst command by reacting to new or revoked (subst /D) drive letters.
      Why is that? I think this a bug because there's no way left to list ALL drive letters anymore.
      And why should I use an API command for that when this was already built in for years?

      I'm making a program that has a combo control in a gui and back in win7 when the window was focused the scroll wheel could be used to scroll through it's contents, now i'm using win10 and i have to put the mouse on that control to scroll up and down.
      Since now the scroll wheel works depending on where the mouse is, is there a way to make it no matter where on the gui the pointer is?
      Also if the only way to do it is some complex hotkey functions will it work with pressing space to toggle a checkbox?
      If you need to see what i have so far let me know and i'll copy it here.

      Hey guys, MattDiesel over Stackoverflow mentioned this beautiful piece of code 
      #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> Local $IDM_FONT = 33 Local $hWindow = WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad") _WinAPI_PostMessage($hWindow, $WM_COMMAND, $IDM_FONT, 0) Local $hFontWin = WinWait("Font") $select = ControlCommand($hFontWin, "", "ComboBox1", "GetCurrentSelection", "") WinClose($hFontWin) MsgBox(0,"", $select) I realized that _WinAPI_PostMessage can trigger menu click event, even if Notepad is minimized.
      How do we know what is the decimal value of *any menu item or sub-menu item*? How we know "Format > Font" menu-item is 33 as wParam to _WinAPI_PostMessage()? Have a look at snapshot.
      Regards.
