Checkbox/combo transparent?

Recommended Posts


I'm coding a autosender/autoclicker/autopresser/take screenshot program, and the functions are coming well..

Now I'm working to make the GUI look nicer...

Okay, I made a background, set the colours (I'm Singaporean, so I use British english) and now I'm getting my buttons, checkboxes, labels, and combos to be transparent..

Labels: done

Buttons: done

But no matter what I try, neither my checkboxes nor combos turn transparent!


Here's one of my checkboxes and combos

And btw, I like to keep my codes small, so I always check up the value of constants in the help file

$WS_EX_TRANSPARENT = 0x00000020

$checkbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("", 7, 27, 13, 13, -1, 0x00000020) ; eh I found that the only way to get the text beside the checkbox to be transparent is to create a separate label
$combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("1", 80, 163, 100, -1, 0x00000020)
GUICtrlSetData($spacing, "2|3|4|5", "1")

Oh! Yay, my hard work has paid off (partly)

Erm, I figured how to get a checkbox to be transparent

just go

GUICtrlSetBkColor($checkboxid, 0x00000020)

after the checkbox,

and Voila!

Hmm, but too bad GUICtrlSetBkColor can't be used with combos... (it's mentioned in the help file)

So, any help?
