Invisible Gui

Recommended Posts


Ok, anyone knows how to make in invisible GUI but all other features are visible? so you get a floating button and stuff like that.

either that, cuz im trying to make a button on a GUI with a picture covering it. As the button doesnt work if it is over the picture(bmp), then i need to make an invisible GUI, or does anyone know how to make a button work over another GUI object like a picture?

someone on here made an online radio player, there GUI was transparent with a BMP file used for the background and controls floating on top.

The code they wrote is below, but you'll have to see if you can figure it out sorry I got to get on, I'm guessing its the $WS_EX_LAYERED option and the GUICtrlSetStyle($caption, -1, $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)

GUICtrlSetStyle($caption, $DS_SETFOREGROUND) stuff..

Dim $s_TempFile
$bmp = _TempFile()
FileInstall("gui_2.bmp", $bmp)
$bmp2 = $bmp
#endregion set-skin
$caption = "Online Radio Jukebox"
$gui = GUICreate("Online Radio Jukebox", 230, 150, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP + $WS_SYSMENU + $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_EX_LAYERED)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Close")
$caption = GUICtrlCreateLabel($caption, 12, 4, 180, 14)
GUICtrlSetStyle($caption, -1, $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)
GUICtrlSetStyle($caption, $DS_SETFOREGROUND)
GUICtrlSetFont($caption, 9, 400, -1, "Arial Bold")
GUICtrlSetColor($caption, 0xffd700)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($caption, "_Drag")
$min = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 198, 4, 11, 11)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($min, "Minimize")
GUICtrlSetTip($min, "Minimize")
$close = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 210, 4, 11, 11)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($close, "Close")
GUICtrlSetTip($close, "Close")
$combo_name = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Choose your RadioStation", 13, 30, 153, 90)
