Gui ghosted

Recommended Posts

kudrow

My GUI gets what looks to be ghosted box that covers up my controls but when I mouse over the controls then they appear fully. What is going on?

Your label is too large, it's covering the rest of the controls. Or, you have a graphic as a background that you haven't disabled.

Other than that, no code from you, means not much we can do but guess.


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.

@kudrow please pay attention to where you post in the future. The Dev forum very clearly states:

Nope...

 

I can minimize it and bring it back up and the controls are hidden again. I used Koda to create the Gui to begin with. I tried changing the size.

Here's your script, modified so that it can actually run, and color coding your labels to prove I was right.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
$Form1 = GUICreate("Login", 416, 206, 192, 124)
$Username = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 40, 16, 329, 21)
$password = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 40, 61, 329, 21, $ES_PASSWORD)
$port = GUICtrlCreateInput("500", 40, 106, 50, 21, $ES_NUMBER)
$Login = GUICtrlCreateButton("Login", 225, 144, 137, 33, $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON)
$Luser = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Username", 40, 38, 298, 50)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x38F568)

$Lpass = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Password", 40, 86, 298, 50)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x6634FA)
$Lport = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Port", 40, 130, 298, 50)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFB336F)
$Status2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 225, 100, 298, 50)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x38F5EC)
GUISetState()
While GUIGetMsg() <> $gui_event_close
WEnd

I fixed it already. Size was fine, position was not.

Thanks for the help anyway

Love the color coding approach. You are indeed right. While positioning made a difference, the size is way too big on the labels. Thanks again oh wise one!
