Change Group Background Color

3 posts in this topic

I try to change the background color of a "group" inside a GUI window :

(using v3.1.1.123)

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
$myGUI = GuiCreate("Group Color test ",550,550,130,0)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("colored group", 14, 20, 520, 440)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x00ff00); Green
GuiSetState()

While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Sleep ( 1 )
    Select
       Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
           Exit
    EndSelect
WEnd

This only changes the text color , but not the whole background color as I expected ...

When using "koda" (the Gui builder tool in Scite), I see that the whole background is colored

in "koda", but once the code is executed in "autoit", only the text part is colored ... :)

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
; == GUI generated with Koda ==
$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 622, 447, 192, 125)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("AGroup1", 88, 40, 409, 281)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x00ff00)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    Case Else
    ;;;;;;;
    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit

Is this intended ? is there a bug ?

How to color the whole background of a "group" ?

Here is a feeble attempt at a workaround

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
; == GUI generated with Koda ==);
$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 622, 448, 192, 125)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group1", 112, 48, 281, 233)
$Graphic1 = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(112, 56, 281, 225)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xD4D0C8)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xA6CAF0)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
$Radio1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("ARadio1", 152, 104, 113, 17)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xA6CAF0)
$Radio2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("ARadio2", 152, 136, 113, 17)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xA6CAF0)
$Radio3 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("ARadio3", 152, 168, 113, 17)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xA6CAF0)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    Case Else
    ;;;;;;;
    EndSelect
WEnd
