Transparent Image GUI?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello~

I have a question regrading the possibility of Creating a GUI which only display Image as the main visual instead of the title bar and the typial background behind it. If my explaination doesnt make sense take a look at the attached file below. As you can see the "cat" :( is stand alone by itself without the window as its background which is what ill get if i create the window with GUICreate and puts the picture on it with GUIctrlCreatePic. This is just a question out of curiosity as i "tries' to make a desktop animation program for fun. I understand that AutoIt is still growin :lmao: and this might be out of the scope for it or mebe the same question have already been asked just tell me so. anyways thanks for anyhelp in advance.. :P

Edit: i look though the forum again and i found the post: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=17230 Larry's example does exactly what i wanted but instead of text with pictures. Just providing a bit more information for those who intended to help me =) P.S. "then why not just use Larry's example and modify this and that and u got urself a workin script?!" lol im too noob to play around with DllCall related script ..sorry O-o... hope some1 can help me Thanks again

if you modify slight bit the example2 of GUICtrlCreatePic you get your answer

#include "GUIConstants.au3"

;$gui=GUICreate("test transparentpic", 200, 100)
$pic=GUICreate("", 68, 71, 10, 10,$WS_POPUP,BitOr($WS_EX_LAYERED,0))                ;,$WS_EX_MDICHILD),$gui)
GUICtrlCreatePic(@Systemdir & "\oobe\images\merlin.gif",0,0, 0,0)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$pic)
;GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$gui)

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "main")
HotKeySet("{LEFT}", "left")
HotKeySet("{RIGHT}", "right")
HotKeySet("{DOWN}", "down")
HotKeySet("{UP}", "up")
$picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
;$guiPos = WinGetPos($gui)

do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

Func main()
    $guiPos = WinGetPos($gui)
    WinMove($gui,"",$guiPos[0]+10,$guiPos[1]+10)
EndFunc

Func left ()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0]-10,$picPos[1])
EndFunc

Func right()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0]+10,$picPos[1])
EndFunc

Func down()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0],$picPos[1]+10)
EndFunc

Func up()
    $picPos = WinGetPos($pic)
    WinMove($pic,"",$picPos[0],$picPos[1]-10)
EndFunc

The doc is saying how to have transparent on a given window so Child is needed, but you are by default the child of the desktop window. :P

ahm, it's jsut a hint, but next time read the function reference very carefully, if you are searching for something... sometimes you won't need to look at the reference anymore, because you know the most things, if you do so.
