Getting flicker with cursor-hover technique

Recommended Posts

I'm using a graphic button in a form and I want to change it to another image when the cursor is hovered over the button. 

I've got that working but the button flickers constantly.

Here's my script:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

; create borderless, chromeless form into which image will be placed
$Form1 = GUICreate("Welcome", 500, 500, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_SYSMENU,$WS_POPUP), 0)

; place image file in form
$Pic1 = GUICtrlCreatePic("Welcometest.bmp", 0, 0, 500, 500)

; needed for some reason
GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)

; display "Click to Continue" button
$C2CBtn = GUICtrlCreatePic("C2C_off.bmp", 300, 300)

; display all of the above as a unit
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
        $ggci = GUIGetCursorInfo($Form1)
        If $ggci[4] = $C2CBtn Then
            GUICtrlSetImage($C2CBtn,"C2C_on.bmp")
        Else
            GUICtrlSetImage($C2CBtn,"C2C_off.bmp")
        EndIf

        $nMsg = GuiGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $C2CBtn
                Exit
        EndSwitch
        Sleep(100)
    WEnd

Resulting GUI

Hovering the cursor over the button changes it as desired. Clicking on the button exits the demo (also desired).  But it flickers constantly. Not desired! ;-)

The attached button images and background image are all 24b bmp files. The actual image used in place of the white box consists of high quality text and graphics so I can't use JPG format.

 

Welcometest.bmp

C2C_off.bmp

C2C_on.bmp

Couple of pointers:

  • Only set the control image when it needs changing, not 10 times per second!
  • Never use a Sleep() in a GUI message loop! as that could lead to slowness in response or missed actions.

This is what Jos meant:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $b_on_off = 0 ; state of button: 0-off 1-on

; create borderless, chromeless form into which image will be placed
$Form1 = GUICreate("Welcome", 500, 500, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_SYSMENU,$WS_POPUP), 0)

; place image file in form
$Pic1 = GUICtrlCreatePic("Welcometest.bmp", 0, 0, 500, 500)

; needed for some reason
GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)

; display "Click to Continue" button
$C2CBtn = GUICtrlCreatePic("C2C_off.bmp", 300, 300)

; display all of the above as a unit
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
        $ggci = GUIGetCursorInfo($Form1)
        If $ggci[4] = $C2CBtn Then
            If $b_on_off = 0 Then
                GUICtrlSetImage($C2CBtn,"C2C_on.bmp")
                $b_on_off = 1
            EndIf
        Else
            If $b_on_off = 1 Then
                GUICtrlSetImage($C2CBtn,"C2C_off.bmp")
                $b_on_off = 0
            EndIf
        EndIf

        $nMsg = GuiGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $C2CBtn
                Exit
        EndSwitch
;~         Sleep(100)
WEnd

Thank you, @Jos and @Zedna! Jos's reply inspired me to go down the path you so graciously completed for me.  Despite the changes shown below I was still wrestling with flickering during hovering when notification of your post appeared.  If coding were whittling I would be knee deep in a pile of discards.

I appreciate your help immensely.

If $ggci[4] = $C2CBtn And $iC2CBtnState = 0 Then
            GUICtrlSetImage($C2CBtn,"C2C_on.bmp")
            $iC2CBtnState = 1
        Else
            if $iC2CBtnState = 1 then GUICtrlSetImage($C2CBtn,"C2C_off.bmp")
            $iC2CBtnState = 0
        EndIf

Just FYI, I created and tested the above script in AutoIt 3.3.14.2.  After upgrading to 3.3.14.5 the internal graphic is resized, I presume because GUICtrlCreatePic is now more strictly obeying the description for width and height: (default is the previously used width).

5bfe1765440b0_Hoverdemo(showingdifbetweenAIversions)-forumver.jpg.91e6ee88b007eb0bb7b8d05447f204bc.jpg

so the following line of code in my original post should now include the dimensions of the click-to-continue button:

; display "Click to Continue" button
$C2CBtn = GUICtrlCreatePic("C2C_off.bmp", 300, 300, 144, 144)

      Hi,
      i want to display a tooltip when i hover over the listview group. It sounds not difficult but i couldn't find a solution and i searched for autoit as well as for c# :/
      So i came up with a not so pretty solution:

      Hover over the Group 2 text and the Tooltip will be displayed. My question is: does someone know another perhaps much prettier solution?
      Thanks in advance

      I tried to come up with a simple toolbar which displays the plain icons (without a button frame) but also shows a button effect when hovered or clicked on.
      My approach was to create a button, add an icon and hide the icon button again. Then place the icon without the button on top of it. When the mouse is moved over the icon I hide the icon (which leaves button displayed) giving me the hover effect for hover and clicks (using GUIGetCursorInfo() to get the icon ID).
      It seem to work ... but sometimes the hover effect does not show as expected especially when the mouse is moved slowly to the edge of the icon. While the icon ID is being read and action triggered (see Mouse OVER text) the icon itself is not being hidden (and button displayed).
      I found that the effect is more likely to occur when the GUI is freshly loaded.
      Can anyone reproduce this effect? I wonder what may causes this effect or is anything wrong in my coding?
      Any hint and support would be appreciated!
      Many thanks

      Hi there ya'll!

      What I've got is 2 GUIs being ontop of eachother, one being the others parent.
      The parent serves mostly as a background as the child is a bit smaller, transparent and contains a set of images/icons. The child GUI also has a scrollbar created by _GUIScrollbars_Generate.

      The problem I'm having is that in the parent GUI I have an inputbox, created by GUICtrlCreateInput, and as that inputbox got focus I want to be able to scroll the child GUI.
      I can't set the inputbox in the child instead as I guess it would be too much work moving it as I scroll along.
      As I'm having it now I manually have to click inside the child GUI to be able to scroll it, and then click inside the parent/inputbox to type again.

      Don't know if there's any other great solution to this. I just thought that a mouseover scroll be OK!
      If you got any other solution I'd happily take that aswell!

      Best regards,
      zvvyt

      I created a program that allows the user to create a countdown showing days, hours, minutes, and seconds left.

      The colors fade from dark to light. You may also change the color of each column, red, green, or blue. Or shades of grey.

      The program also uses MrCreatoR's

      If you choose not to use the hover effect, just remove the lines of code that uses it.

      It makes it much more stylish with it.



      Countdown.au3

      I made this because of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim !
