Setting Color For Progress Bar

7 posts in this topic

Hello, I'm trying to change the color of my progress bar and the manual for GUICtrlSetColor says: Progress controls cannot be painted if the "Windows XP style" is used. I cannot find where to specify the windows xp style (or not to). However, I cannot change the color. Any ideas?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#notrayicon
$checkRun = "Emc Tool"
If WinExists($checkRun) Then Exit
$main_gui= GUICreate("Emc Tool", 350, 280)
GUISetBkColor (0x0f0f0f)
Global $defaultstatus = "Ready"
Global $status
$statuslabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel ($defaultstatus,0,240,350,18,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))
GUICtrlSetColor ( $statuslabel, 0x76EE00)
$button = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("Ping", 150, 60, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetColor ( $button, 0x76EE00)
$LabelTime = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" ", 230, 218, 115,17,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))
GUICtrlSetColor ($LabelTime, 0x76EE00)

$name = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" Hello " & @username, 10, 218, 98,17,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))
GUICtrlSetFont ($name, 11)
GUICtrlSetColor ($name, 0x76EE00)
; Show the GUI
GUISetState ()

While 1
 $msg = GUIGetMsg()

 GUICtrlSetData($LabelTime, @MON & "." & @MDAY & "." & @YEAR & "   " & @HOUR & "." & @MIN & "." & @SEC)

      DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "AnimateWindow", "hwnd", $main_gui, "int", 1000, "long", 0x00090000);fade-out
      ExitLoop

      uptime()
 EndSelect

sorry, for a working version of the above code try below. Just copy a server name or ip address into the clipboard:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#notrayicon
$checkRun = "Emc Tool"
If WinExists($checkRun) Then Exit
$main_gui= GUICreate("Emc Tool", 350, 280)
GUISetBkColor (0x0f0f0f)
Global $defaultstatus = "Ready"
Global $status
$statuslabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel ($defaultstatus,0,240,350,18,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))
GUICtrlSetColor ( $statuslabel, 0x76EE00)
$button = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("Ping", 150, 60, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetColor ( $button, 0x76EE00)
$LabelTime = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" ", 230, 218, 115,17,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))
GUICtrlSetColor ($LabelTime, 0x76EE00)

$name = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" Hello " & @username, 10, 218, 98,17,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))
GUICtrlSetFont ($name, 11)
GUICtrlSetColor ($name, 0x76EE00)
; Show the GUI
GUISetState ()

While 1
 $msg = GUIGetMsg()

 GUICtrlSetData($LabelTime, @MON & "." & @MDAY & "." & @YEAR & "   " & @HOUR & "." & @MIN & "." & @SEC)
 Select
  Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
      DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "AnimateWindow", "hwnd", $main_gui, "int", 1000, "long", 0x00090000);fade-out
      ExitLoop
  Case $msg = $button
      uptime()
 EndSelect
WEnd


;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
func uptime()
   $vServerClip=clipget()
   $vServerString=stringsplit($vServerClip,@TAB)
   $statuslabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("running uptime                                                                                                                                             ",0,240,350,18,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))
   GUICtrlSetColor ( $statuslabel, 0x76EE00)
   $progressbar1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress (226,240,125,18,$PBS_SMOOTH);,$ss_SUNKEN)
   GUICtrlSetColor ( $progressbar1, 0x76EE00)
   $wait = 2
   $s = 0
   GUICtrlSetColor(-1,32250)
   For $i = $s To 100
    GUICtrlSetData ($progressbar1,$i)
    Sleep($wait)
   next
   dim $aMy[6]
   $mycmd=" /c %systemroot%\system32\ping -n 1  tserver& pause"
   $mycmd0=stringreplace($mycmd,"tserver",clipget())
   $aMy[1]= @ComSpec
   $aMy[2]= $mycmd0
   Run($aMy[1] & $aMy[2])
   $statuslabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("Ready                                                                                                                                                                       ",0,240,350,18,BitOr($SS_SIMPLE,$SS_SUNKEN))
   GUICtrlSetColor ( $statuslabel, 0x76EE00)
   $progressbar1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress (226,240,125,18,$PBS_SMOOTH);,$ss_SUNKEN)
   GUICtrlSetColor ( $progressbar1, 0x76EE00)
endfunc

Please note, the following code works to change to color. However, I'm not sure why it works and the above doesn't.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI Progressbar",220,100, 100,200)
$progressbar1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress (10,10,200,20)
GUICtrlSetColor($progressbar1,0x76EE00)
$progressbar2 = GUICtrlCreateProgress (10,40,200,20,$PBS_SMOOTH,$ss_Sunken)
GUICtrlSetColor($progressbar2,0x76EE00)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Start",75,70,70,20)
GUISetState ()

$wait = 20; wait 20ms for next progressstep
$s = 0; progressbar-saveposition
do
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
If $msg = $button Then
    GUICtrlSetData ($button,"Stop")
    For $i = $s To 100
    $m = GUIGetMsg ()
    
    If $m = -3 Then ExitLoop
    
    If $m = $button Then
      GUICtrlSetData ($button,"Next")
      $s = $i;save the current bar-position to $s
      ExitLoop
    Else
        $s=0
      GUICtrlSetData ($progressbar1,$i)
      GUICtrlSetData ($progressbar2,(100 - $i))
      Sleep($wait)
    EndIf
    Next
    if $i >100 then
;       $s=0
        GUICtrlSetData ($button,"Start")
    endif
EndIf
until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

I figured it out. I had an entry that wasn't needed (due to copying code from another function). Thanks anyway!

I removed: GUICtrlSetColor(-1,32250)

I don't get it... How did that fix the problem? :mellow:

I have a really cool progress bar I wrote (I'll post it when I get to work) that smoothly changes color based on the progress. Full red at 0%, smoothly transitions to full blue at 50%, and then smoothly goes to full green at 100%. Works great in WINE, Win2KPro, Win2KAS, and Win2003, but the progress bar stays green from start to finish in XP.

I saw the note about "Windows XP style" but have the same questions: How did that get set? Is that just a "feature" of XP? How do I change it? :)

P.S. There are other attributes, like the default font size in message boxes and GUIs that seem to be different in XP than any other Windows, too.

Here is my demo, MultiColorProgressBar.au3, which works on every Windows except XP:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$GuiHandle = GUICreate("Progress Bar Test", 300, 130)
$ProgBar_1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 10, 280, 30, $PBS_Smooth)
$UpButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("UP", 15, 50, 76, 40)
$DownButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Down", 112, 50, 76, 40)
$StopButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("STOP", 209, 50, 76, 40)
$Label_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Red = 0, Green = 0, Blue = 0, Color = 0xFF0000", 10, 100, 280, 20, $SS_Center)
GUISetState()

$Progress = 0; Will be 0 thru 1000
$Increment = 0
While(1)
    $GuiMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $GuiMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GuiMsg = $UpButton
            $Increment = +1
        Case $GuiMsg = $DownButton
            $Increment = -1
        Case $GuiMsg = $StopButton
            $Increment = 0
        EndSelect
    _SetProgColor()
WEnd

Func _SetProgColor()
    $Progress = $Progress + $Increment
    If $Progress < 0 Then $Progress = 0
    If $Progress > 1000 Then $Progress = 1000
    GUICtrlSetData($ProgBar_1, Int($Progress / 10))
    
    $Redness = Int(255 - ($Progress / 1000 * 512))
    If $Redness < 0 Then $Redness = 0
        
    $Greeness = Int(($Progress / 1000 * 512) - 257)
    If $Greeness < 0 Then $Greeness = 0
        
    $Blueness = Int(255 - ($Redness + $Greeness))
    
    $ProgColor = ($Redness * 256 * 256) + ($Greeness * 256) + $Blueness
    GUICtrlSetData($Label_1, "Red = " & $Redness & ", Green = " & $Greeness & ", Blue = " & $Blueness & ", Color = 0x" & Hex($ProgColor, 6))
    GUICtrlSetColor($ProgBar_1, $ProgColor)
EndFunc

Looking for how to make the changing color of the progress bar work for XP also... :)

That did it! Working on all Windows versions I can test on now! :)

Thanks! :mellow:
