My First Script: Translucent Form

Recommended Posts

the DtTvB

This is my first AutoIt script. From my knowledge of VB.

Here is the function, you can place somewhere in your code.

Func SetOpacity($hwnd, $opacity)
    Dim $a
    $a = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "GetWindowLongA", "hwnd", $hwnd, "long", -20)
    DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SetWindowLongA", "hwnd", $hwnd, "long", -20, "long", BitOR($a, 524288))
    DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SetLayeredWindowAttributes", "hwnd", $hwnd, "long", 0, "long", $opacity, "long", 2)

Usage: SetOpacity ($hwnd, $opacity)

$hwnd - Hwnd of target window

$opacity - Opacity value in the scale of 0-255

Full Script:

transparent.au3 (Makes a translucent window.)

fade.au3 (Fades form in, and out.)
