Button on top of Image

Recommended Posts

Ok, I am having a problem with a button that happens to rest on top of a background image.

You can tab to the button, and it works fine, just for some reason you cannot seem to be able to click it.

Is this a limitation? or is this me?

$pInformationWindow = GUICreate('Information Window', $WINDOWWIDTH, $WINDOWHEIGHT, $WINDOWLOCATIONX, _
    $pInformationBK = GUICtrlCreatePic($BKFILELOCATION, 0, 0, 0, 0)
    $pInformationLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Computer Information:"& _
        @LF & $sComputerInformation, 20, 20, 220, 135, $SS_CENTER)
    GUICtrlSetFont($pInformationLabel, 9, 4, '', 'ARIAL BOLD')
    GUICtrlSetBkColor($pInformationLabel, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)
    GUICtrlSetColor($pInformationLabel, $WINDOWFONTCOLOR)
    $buttonInfoWindowClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("X", 200, 9, 50, 12, BitOR($BS_FLAT, $BS_BITMAP), $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
    GUICtrlSetFont($buttonInfoWindowClose, 6, 2, '', 'ARIAL BOLD')
    ;GUICtrlSetTip($buttonInfoWindowClose, "Close")

For some reason it will not let me click the button while the picture is under it, if I move the picture then I can click it fine?

Try disabling the picture by inserting GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE) in the line after GUICtrlCreatePic.

That did it, thank you very much!!!

from the doc

If a picture is set as a background picture, as the other controls will overlap, it important to disable the pic control : GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE). This does not work with Tab control which behave differently. in this case you need to create the picture with the $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS style, some $GUI_ONTOP can still be necessary for the tab control.

It is allways usefull to search in the doc...
