How The Heck Do I Get This Window Transparent?

5 posts in this topic

I don't know why but this script doesn't set istelf transparent, it only does that when there is two of them open :) how can I set the window to be transparent on start?

Opt("wintitlematchmode",4)
$trans = WinSetTrans("My GUI", "", 220)
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate ("My GUI") 
GUISetState ($trans)      
_settrancs()
    
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
Wend
    
Func _settrancs()
WinSetState("My GUI","",$trans)
EndFunc

You might want to try creating the window before u set the transparency

Opt("wintitlematchmode",4)

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate ("My GUI")    
$trans = WinSetTrans("My GUI", "", 220)
GuiSetState()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
Wend

That works for me...

Try this effect.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate ("My GUI")
GUISetState(@SW_HIDE)
WinSetTrans("My GUI", "", 220)
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
Wend

FYI... Just because you have it stored in a variable, doesn't mean it isn't called... what is stored in the variable with WinSetTrans() the way you have it,

Success: Returns Non-zero.

Failure: Returns 0, @error will be set to 1 if the function isn't supported on an OS.

So when you are calling $trans you are returning the number it was originally called, not the function....

An alternative could be:

Opt("wintitlematchmode",4)
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
$Main = GUICreate("My GUI")
_settrancs($Main, 100)
GUISetState ()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
Wend
    
Func _settrancs($window, $trans)
    WinSetTrans($window, '', $trans)
EndFunc
