Making checkbox tranparent ?

8 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm making a script which can install programs for my unattended install of Windows XP. Here is the script :

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

GuiCreate("Select programs to Install", 392, 316,-1, -1 , BitOr( $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS ))

GUICtrlCreatePic(@Systemdir & "\oobe\images\newtop8.jpg", 0, 0, 392, 42 )

GUICtrlCreatePic(@Systemdir & "\oobe\images\mslogo.jpg", 0, 0, 255, 40 )

;GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\newmark8.jpg", 0, 42, 392, 250 )

$Checkbox_1 = GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox("Notepad", 20, 60, -1, -1)

$Checkbox_2 = GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox("Calc", 20, 80, -1, -1)

$Checkbox_3 = GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox3", 20, 100, -1, -1)

$Checkbox_4 = GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox4", 20, 120, -1, -1)

$Checkbox_5 = GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox5", 20, 140, -1, -1)

$Button_1 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Install", 20, 200, 60, 20)

$Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 100, 200, 60, 20)

GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x00ff00)

GuiSetState()

While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $Button_2

Exit

Case $msg = $Button_1

If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox_1) = 1 Then RunWait ( "notepad.exe" )

If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox_2) = 1 Then RunWait ( "calc.exe" )

MsgBox (0, "Pad is", @ScriptDir)

Exit

EndSelect

WEnd

GUIDelete()

Exit

When I enable the line ;GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\newmark8.jpg", 0, 42, 392, 250 ) the check boxes can't be used as also the buttons. Is there a way to make the check boxes and buttons transparent to the graphic ? In simple words I want to use a background picture with check boxes and buttons.

I have included a screencapture when the line is enabled.

With kind regards,

John Slegers

Not sure that you can make them transparent, but to get the controls to work with a image in the background you need to disable the image

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Select programs to Install", 392, 316, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))
GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\newtop8.jpg", 0, 0, 392, 316)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)
;~ GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\mslogo.jpg", 0, 0, 255, 40)
;GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\newmark8.jpg", 0, 42, 392, 250 )

$Checkbox_1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Notepad", 20, 60, 100)
$Checkbox_2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Calc", 20, 80, 100)
$Checkbox_3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox3", 20, 100, 100)
$Checkbox_4 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox4", 20, 120, 100)
$Checkbox_5 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox5", 20, 140, 100)
$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Install", 20, 200, 60, 20)
$Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 100, 200, 60, 20)

GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x00ff00)

GUISetState()
While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   
   Select
      Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $Button_2
         Exit
         
      Case $msg = $Button_1
         If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox_1),$GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then RunWait("notepad.exe")
         If  BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox_2),$GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then RunWait("calc.exe")
         MsgBox(0, "Pad is", @ScriptDir)
         Exit
   EndSelect
WEnd

GUIDelete()
Exit

So it means Autoit cannot work with background images and controls ?

I have tried it but the controls have grey background instead of the picture. Well if it doesn't work it is no problem.

I believe checkboxes are another form of button, same applies to standard buttons

With the beta you could always make an OwnerDrawn checkbox, probably make it transparent, haven't tried it myself.

or

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Select programs to Install", 392, 316, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))
GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\newtop8.jpg", 0, 0, 392, 316)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)
;~ GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\mslogo.jpg", 0, 0, 255, 40)
;GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\newmark8.jpg", 0, 42, 392, 250 )

$Checkbox_1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("", 20, 60, 10, 10)
$label_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" NotePad", 30, 60, 90, 20 )
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xffffff)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)
$Checkbox_2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("", 20, 80, 10, 10)
$label_2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" Calc", 30, 80, 90, 20 )
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xffffff)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)
$Checkbox_3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("", 20, 100, 10, 10)
$label_3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" Checkbox3", 30, 100, 90, 20 )
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xffffff)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)
$Checkbox_4 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("", 20, 120, 10, 10)

Hi,

I have tried the last code with the latest beta. I'm having a problem with the line GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT) it can't find the variable $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT. Is this a new function within Autoit beta ?

John
