Mouse over Label

Recommended Posts


Hi I've only discoverd AutoIt this week and i must say it is awsome!!!

I'm trying to change the colour of a label when i move my mouse over it.

So far i've got it to work when i click on the label. I need to be able to hover over the label. How do i do this.


$label1=GuiCtrlCreateLabel(@CRLF & "Open File", 40, 40, 360, 40, $SS_SUNKEN )

GuiCtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xece9d8)


Func Label1Click()

GuiCtrlSetBkColor($label1, 0xFFFFCC)


Thanks in advance :whistle:

there is a MouseHover udf in Scripts & Scrapts.

So long,


Scripts & functions Organize Includes Let Scite organize the include files

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

MultipleFuncsWithOneHotkey Start different funcs by hitting one hotkey different times

Global $MainLabelColour = 0xECE9D8, $OverLabelColour = 0xFFFFCC, $MouseOver = 1
$MainGUI = GUICreate('Test', 440, 120)
$label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(@CRLF & "Open File", 40, 40, 360, 40, $SS_SUNKEN )
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $MainLabelColour)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, '_Exit', $MainGUI)
AdlibEnable("_AdlibManager", 10)

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
