CheckBox Text Color

4 posts in this topic

Can you change the color of the text for a checkbox?

Here's my code...

$lastLogon = GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox("Last Logon", 50, 100)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xFFFFFF)

I've got a black background for my GUI so I wanted the text of the checkbox white but it doesn't seem to change anything. Any ideas?

No, you'll need to make a seperate label to do it.

Proof of concept of the above:

$Main = GUICreate('Test GUI', 200, 100)
$CheckBox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox('Some Text', 10, 10, 80, 20)
$aCkBox = _GUICtrlCreateCheckbox('Some Text', 10, 30, 60, 20, 0xFF0000)
GUISetState()
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case -3
            Exit
        Case $CheckBox1
            MsgBox(64, 'Info', 'You clicked the regular check box')
        Case $aCkBox[1]
            MsgBox(64, 'Info', 'You clicked the altered check box')
        Case $aCkBox[2]
            MsgBox(64, 'Info', "You clicked the altered check box's label")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($sText, $nLeft, $nTop, $nWidth, $nHeight, $nColor)
    Local $aCkBoxEx[3]
    $aCkBoxEx[1] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox('', $nLeft, $nTop, -1, 0, -1, -1)
    $aCkBoxEx[2] = GUICtrlCreateLabel($sText, $nLeft + 20, $nTop + 3, $nWidth, $nHeight)
    GUICtrlSetColor($aCkBoxEx[2], $nColor)
    Return $aCkBoxEx
